2006 Excentrique - Embroidery Velvet Corset
The embroidered fabric on this is soooo beautiful. I saw this on lolibrary and thought 'oh my god I want that, but obviously I'll never get it' and when I saw it for sale I couldn't believe my eyes.

Gobelin bustier handmade by me
+ Coats and Jackets +
I live in England where we have to wear a coat pretty much all the time when going out. That's my excuse for owning too many...
I was super excited to find this because Re-Ri, a person who took beautiful pictures and had a cool site in the early 00s, wore this coat in a bunch of her pictures. I'm not sure when it's from, probably between 1998 and 2001. I love the tortoiseshell buttons, they're like little jewels.
2005 Metamorphose - School Jacket '05
Atelier Boz Extensa Roland jacket
Black Peace Now
My everyday coat, hence it having pins all over the lapels. The swag pin is courtesy of Karolina Żebrowska! Rococo swag.
Baby the Stars Shine Bright
The Dark Angel
I can't get enough of this coat. It's almost floor length on me. I sweep around in it ominously like the vampire I am.
I liked this jacket so much I bought it in two colours.
+ Waistoats +
I adore waistcoats. I'd own more, because I wear them so often, but it's hard to fines ones I like. Mainly because I have a serious pet peeve for halterneck and backless waistcoats. They're not really waistcoats, they're... lazy design, and they kind of make you look like a waiter. Not to mention they aren't as warm as normal waistcoats, and the ties at the back end up being bulky or sticking into your back if you sit down (big no-no). Lolita brands make halterneck waistcoats so often and it's highly annoying.
Black Peace Now
I love layering this over stuff. It's so flattering and versatile.
Alice and the Pirates - Mad Tea Party Vest
This has a brooch thingy, a 10/6 Mad Hatter thingy, it's cute but it doesn't exactly scream 'casual' so I don't wear them together much.
This is really nice design. I love red velveteen...
