Starting the 30-day Lolita Challenge

I simply love reading posts different lolitas make for the 30-day challenge, and now I've finally decided I want to do one myself. I don't think I will do it thirty days in a row- some days are too busy for that- but I will try and keep it going all the way up to post 30!

So here we go!

My revolving lolita collection

It's only been a month or two since my last post, and already a portion of my collection has changed. To keep track of it all, I spent some time organizing photos of my items into some albums on photobucket.

Here is my current wardrobe, although it is missing all my no brand items: http://s50.photobucket.com/albums/f321/Dragonlover17/Current%20Lolita%20Wardrobe/

And here is a record of past lolita items I have owned: http://s50.photobucket.com/albums/f321/Dragonlover17/Items%20of%20Lolita%20Past/

And here's my wishlist to see some things I'd like to add to my collection in the future: http://s50.photobucket.com/albums/f321/Dragonlover17/Wishlist/

These lists will be updated every few months, so feel free to come back and check on what's changed every so often. I'll put a date at the bottom here to let you know when I've last updated.

Collection as of: September 25th, 2011

A reflection on my lolita collection

Today, I reached a point where I can say my collection is complete. Why? Because I finally bought my dream dress. Actually, two of them, because I bought my second favorite colorway, and only hours later found the colorway I really wanted. I think I'm going to love both equally though.

Now looking over what I have, I realized I bought a ton of lolita clothes over the past few months, many wonderful dresses, but also many things I didn't need. Looking over them, I think I bought them on a whim to fill the anxiety and stress over not finding my dream piece. So many times I scoured the web searching, and ended up buying extra things that caught my eye but I did not need or really want. It's wasteful, and I feel ashamed.

So now I'm hoping to sell off part of my wardrobe and only keep the pieces I really want. I am going to stop window shopping the sales comm, because I'm ultimately too tempted to buy things I don't need.

If you are curious as to what my collection looks like, here is a wardrobe post from a couple months ago. It has already changed a lot since then, with some items being sold and quite a few more being bought.
