Wardrobe Blunders! Things I Bought That I Ended Up Regretting!

I've had a number of items that I haven't been completely pleased with like my Fanplusfriend blouse or my Bodyline wig which I ended up later selling. However, the number one item that I end up regretting purchasing? That would be my very first lolita purchases, Bodyline l231 along with a headdress I grabbed in the same order, gothic645.
Edgy desu.~
Yep, I had the brilliant idea of buying a wa lolita piece for my first lolita purchase. Don't get me wrong. I think wa lolita can be a lovely substyle. However, wa lolita is definitely not for beginners with the dearth of dresses available outside of Bodyline. The wide distracting sleeves can easily make a coordinate look overly costumey as they're hard to balance out. And for around $70, the dress definitely wasn't worth the price for which I could have bought dresses that I would have liked better and had a better resale value. However, the purchase wasn't entirely bad. I have managed to make use of the red skirt in more punk or gothic style looks. The headdress... well, um, the piece has a lot of sentimental value so that counts for something, right? 

The above post idea was originally from F Yeah Lolita's original list, Lolita 52 Challenge


  1. A friend of mine bought that Wa Lolita Outfit and she looked stunning in it, but you're right, this outfit is not a good one to start your "lolita career" ... but maybe you can give this outfit a sort of 2nd chance and try to recoordinate it ? :o =)

    1. Does your friend happen to have posted the coordinate online? I'd love to see it to get some inspiration. ^_^
