embarking on the 10 items/7 outfits challenge!

A while ago, my dearest friend Alanna of Macaron Hearts set a challenge for all lolitas in cyberspace: Using only 10 articles of clothing, create 7 unique looks that you would wear! Head on down to her first post about it to read about the rules and all that jazz. (:

Now, I personally loved loved LOVED the idea of it, especially having always seen this similarly done in issues of Non-No, and so I thought it would be fun if I gave it a shot! (: I took these in a rush to catch some natural light at 5pm, so please forgive the quality of the photos and my lack of makeup!!

As those who know me would be aware, I’m 98% sweet lolita (2% being my not-so secret desire to be a more mature gothic lolita one fine day!!) and that my wardrobe is filled mostly with pink and white! So that being said, here are my chosen 10 items:

A: Ports International blazer
B: Offbrand blouse (purchased off a local blogshop site!)
C: Angelic Pretty “Country of Sweets” JSK in pink
D: Secret Shop Shoes
E: Offbrand Mules with heart-shaped heels
F: Alice and the Pirates “This is my blood” Asymmetrical skirt in off-white
G: Forever 21 sleeveless top
H: Baby the Stars Shine Bright “Parfait” skirt in white
I: Liz Lisa short sleeved hoodie
J: Vivienne Westwood short sleeved cardigan


And so here comes Coordinate #1!

Normally I would wear this off-brand blouse over skinny jeans with a belt for some waist definition, and so, I thought, since that works for me normally, why not try it over a lolita skirt? And so I did. 😀

Coordinate items:
B: Offbrand Blouse
F: Alice and the Pirates “This is my Blood” Asymmetrical Skirt
E: Offbrand Heart-heel Mules
Offbrand belt
Primark lace tights
Paris Kids mini hair bow



Coordinate #2!

This is probably closest to what my regular Sweet Lolita look would look like! For the longest time, this Country of Sweets JSK was my absolute dream article that I wanted to own!! I was lucky to find this at a relatively reasonable price on Mbok nearly 2 years ago, and I have been one happy girl ever since! (:

Coordinate items:
C: Angelic Pretty “Country of Sweets” JSK
B: Offbrand Blouse (sleeves rolled up!)
J: Vivienne Westwood Cardigan
D: Secret Shop Shoes
Baby the Stars Shine Bright PinkxWhite Hairbow
Baby the Starts Shine Bright Bunny Purse
Sock Dreams over the knee rainbow socks



Coordinate #3!

This is the first time I’ve tried something like this, so I’m not sure if it worked quite as well as I hoped it would, but here goes anyway! The blazer covered up most of the top of the bodice, effectively toning down the JSK, and making it a little more “wearable” as compared to the previous full out Sweet Lolita look of #2.

Coordinate items:
C: Angelic Pretty “Country of Sweets” JSK
A: Ports International Blazer
E: Offbrand Heart-heel Mules
Primark laced tights
Ice-cream Necklace, a gift from Ivory
Feather hairband from Portobello Road



Coordinate #4!
So previously I’ve mentioned that my wardrobe was full of Pink and White items. But strangely enough, in my years of being a lolita, I’ve never really done a proper Shiro-Loli look before! It’s got a bit of an old-school lolita look, I think? But either way, I quite like this coordinate.

Coordinate items:
B: Offbrand Blouse
H: Baby the Stars Shine Bright “Parfait” Skirt
E: Offbrand Heart-heel Mules
Angelic Pretty white lace wrist cuffs
Baby the Stars Shine Bright white lace topped knee socks
H&M Offwhite Flower Hairband
Pearl Headband, gift from Ivory (worn as necklace)


And as it turned out, I ran out of sunlight before I could take any more photos, so this is all the coordinates I have for now!! Stay tuned for part 2, which will be posted soon!
