MILK ✦ CIRCUS 2018 Wardrobe Post

Hello! It’s a tradition in the online EGL community to post a yearly wardrobe post showcasing the prints and pieces we’ve collected so far. This post is super late but it’s finally finished! C:

I started wearing Lolita Fashion “officially” in March 2017, the same month I restarted this blog. I had a few things here & there but I wasn’t focused on actually understanding the fashion, wardrobe building, or even getting involved with the community. I bought one of the dresses pictured here in October 2016 to attend a local teaparty a coworker of mine invited me to while I was in another city. (I’m going to write a longer more in-depth “Lolita Journey” post when my anniversary comes up) Beyond that one dress, my wardrobe is from the past 12 months, mostly secondhand, found or acquired through sales, payment plans, luck, and most importantly (as well as fortunately), a stable support structure in my life. I don’t really have any other financially dependent hobbies or personal things to take care of and additionally, “circus” as a theme seems to be trending out of popularity at the moment so that also helped a lot in finding competitive pieces for great prices! As noted, I almost exclusively collect circus themed pieces, so I have a lot of circus prints, stripes, clowns, diamonds, tassels, card suits, and other related themes. I hope you’ll enjoy looking through my Circus Lolita wardrobe!

I already keep a record of everything I own through saving the stock photos whenever I make a purchase, so I was a little hesitant about making this post due to how time-consuming the photo process would be. But seeing other Lolita bloggers I follow post their wardrobes inspired me to give it a try anyway!

For this wardrobe post, I’m including pictures of the dress as well as the stock photo (if it exists) and close up details! The names of some of the items will appear if you hover over them but if you want to know what something is, feel free to ask C: Photo heavy post incoming. This will probably be the most photo heavy post I ever make for this blog. For future wardrobe posts, I will only post new dresses, accessories, & other additions rather than recapping everything once more. Alright, here we go! ^_^

Final Word:

That’s everything for now! As you can see, I’ve acquired a lot of things in a year but I’m very happy with my wardrobe, I think it’s cohesive to exactly what I like while giving me options to try different combinations with the things I already have. There are a few things that don’t fit me in the way that I’d like, such as the Geometric OP & Carnival Applique Skirt, but I’ve been using them as motivation for becoming more physically fit!

I hope you enjoyed looking through my wardrobe, I’m looking forward to seeing what the rest of 2018 brings! One of my New Years Resolutions was to try to focus on finding more circus themed casual pieces so I can slowly transition my daily wardrobe more towards the things I like and really try to capture that “streetwear” vibe on a weekly basis. I have a taste for OTT styles but understanding that it’s just not practical on the day-to-day, especially if I just want to go about my business and not have anyone approach me or comment on what I wear. Now that I have a strong foundation, I think I’ll be able to aim towards where I want to be! Thanks for reading!

    It’s amazing how you’ve managed to go from zero to such a large and cohesive wardrobe so quickly. That’s the best example of how you can get it right when from the beginning you know exactly what you’re after and have a vision of what you want your wardrobe to look like. No meandering or misses or ‘I thought I’d like that, but now I don’t’, just getting straight down to business and achieving what you want. I especially love your accessory collection, there are so many unique pieces there. And the Jane Marple Jester jacket made me gasp, that’s such an incredible find!

      Thank you so much! I’ve had a few things here & there that I’ve ended up parting with but I can comfortably say that I really like my wardrobe and regularly look forward to wearing everything C: 2017 was the perfect year for me to start the fashion because I had no student loan payments and a new job so I could spend all of my time just wardrobe building. 2018 is completely different so I’m glad I started when I had the chance xD;;; But some things like one of my Innocent World JSKs & an Alice and the Pirates JSK were $45 & $40 respectively so I still did devote a lot of time buying things that were really cheap as well so it resulted in a large wardrobe in a short amount of time. ^^ Thank you again! I love accessories and I wish I could find the actual name of the Jane Marple jacket but I just call it “Jester” because that’s honestly what it reminds me of haha

      Thank you so much, that’s so nice of you to say! C’: I really liked circus prints and was surprised by the range myself, being able to flip between sweet, classic, and gothic yet still use the same colors! It was so hard for me to find coordinate inspiration outside of like Star Night Theater so I really wanted to see the full extent of what could be done through the large amount of circus themed prints brands still put out. ^^
