My Lolita Publication Library and 90% of a Wardrobe Post

I’ve had quite a few people ask me to share my library, so I’m going to do something a little bit different. This is a partial wardrobe post, but it’s also a post of my lolita library.

So without further ado, my library, which badly needs more shelf space.

…and, just for fun, here is most of the stuff I didn’t have time to take pictures of.

In the mail:

Unfortunately, I’m in the process of changing how both my lolita clothing and my books are stored, and so I had things in a lot of different places, and in a few cases I missed some things… and I just got tired. I also really lack any place to take good photos. I was taking pictures in the living room at first, but there were a bunch of chairs and things in there this weekend that I couldn’t move when I went to finish taking pictures! D= So, I had to take photos of my new things and my skirts ontop of my loft bed. I also never bothered taking out the stuff I have stored under said bed. I included thumbnails of either old photos or stock photos of most things I left out (but not all; I hit the limit for post length). Sorry everything is so messy. This really, really, really wore me out and I didn’t have the energy to keep smoothing out the sheet I put down to take photos in front of.

Also excluded is a lot of stuff I plan to sell.

    • I’m sorry that you missed it. :( I don’t really see myself selling it any time soon; even if I were to sell off half my wardrobe, it would still be in the “keeps” section.

      • I have a totally unrelated question regarding the Charles Crown OP since I already own it in black (or is yours navy?) ~ do you know if it’s washable? I have searched quite a bit to see if anyone has noted it as washable, but have found no answers. We spoke before on LiveJournal and you seem to be quite knowledgeable ~ looks like you’ve had plenty of Lolita items to get experience! ;3 Anyway, I’d really appreciate even a brief reply!

        • Mine is the green-blue color. I would assume it’s washable? I think I had mine drycleaned last time, but I know I wore it to a photoshoot in the rain and it was totally fine. Maybe try wetting one of the little detachable bows first to be sure?

          • I was thinking of trying the bows actually ~ I wish it had some hidden ties or something like my yukata does. xD

            Oh wow, it got rained on? That seems a pretty decent test. Unfortunately, so far everyone posting about this dress in black has only dry cleaned it or never cleaned it.

            I guess I’ll just have to cross my fingers that the black holds up as well as green/blue since it has a chemical smell on it that needs to come out before I can wear it. I’ll post my results when I get brave enough to try. I’ll be hand-washing it with distilled water and yucca extract, so hopefully that will be gentle enough. I tried this method with other blacks and they look perfectly new despite the washing.

            But, now I should stop rambling, lol~ Thank you for taking the time to reply though; I know you didn’t have to!

    • Sure, no problem! I’m happy to share it.

      Is it for something more formal? Do you want me to scan it instead so it’s more straight-on?
