Wore loli almost everyday this week…and never took a single photo lol. Rushing out the door before work means no early morning photo and being busy this time of year after work and coming home exhausted means no late night photo either…ah well.
I’ve been pulling out some of the items I haven’t worn in a while. Some of it I’ll probably sell soon as they were items I got when I first started or given to me by my well meaning mother (who didn’t quite understand which particular substyle I liked to wear but still wanted to help out lol). Or items that just don’t fit me well (especially at the bust). It is good to see though that I still really love the items I bought (proving them to be good buys rather than impulsive have to have the latest print from so and so).
Sadly though I have to toss some things as they’re just too worn and they wouldn’t be good to sell (or too much trouble for the cost I’d be able to actually sell them at). While I’ve been madly stuffing more into my closet, it’s a sad fact that this is mostly because I have a lot of really old items that are exiting it (most of it super old from my high school or uni days and completely worn out).
Just reflecting on all this, it makes me realize that when I buy things I tend to purchase them for long term use. I keep things for years, I treat them well and they last for years (except my shoes which get everyday use once I fall in love with them and usually are torn up in the course of a year from overuse with the amount of walking I do). I did do a massive purge when I moved out of my 1600 sq ft condo into sharing an 850 sq ft apartment out of necessity but that was mostly random things around the house and the majority of my old pants (since I maybe wear pants 5 or 6 days out of the year) from my techie theatre days.
My waredrobe certainly looks much more lolita-like now. Blouses, cardis, skirts and jsks, mixed in with my more punky items and the odd office wear for instances where I can’t wear even casual loli.
I guess it’s a change in my lifestyle, but I compare it with events in my life and where I am now and it’s pretty interesting to see how my set of friends has changed since university (though I’m still in touch with old high school buddies and the like and some uni friends will always remain friends). How my expectations and standard of living have changed and I suppose just my general outlook on life.
Anyhoo…random ramble, rambles on…I won’t bother anyone with more of my mumblings for a while XD
