Lolita Blog Carnival: Wardrobe Challenge

Today I will be posting another entry alongside the Lolita Blog Carnival. For those of you who don't know, it is a group of lolita bloggers who post about the same prompt once a week.

This week's prompt is one that I was particularly excited for, the "Wardrobe Challenge". There were actually guidelines this time, and those were as stated: "take one staple wardrobe item, like a skirt or a JSK or OP and make five different coordinates with it". Being the Jamie that I am, I was totally excited.

My dear friend Kim often tells me how amazed she is by my ability to take my simple pink Bodyline dress and change it into so many different things than she could have ever imagined. Therefore, I thought I would (with the help of Polyvore) show you how to coordinate a plain colored jumper skirt. I will be using the color pink. :] Enjoy!

I've decided to only do four coordinates for the sake of time.

First I created a casual kind of look with just a blouse, the dress, some shoes and a bow. I forgot socks, I apologize. This is the kind of thing I might wear on a lazy lolita day. 

My initial idea was to create an OTT lolita look, but then I realized that it would take way longer than the rest, so I just stuck with a sweet lolita coordinate. This look was completely inspired by cotton candy. 

Next I thought I'd do kind of a gothic styled look. This is the kind of style I feel like I wear with my lolita the most, as I have a lot of black items in my wardrobe. I also like the way black and pink look together. 

One of my favorite kinds of looks- hime lolita. I really love the elegance that hime-lolita has. I've only tried one hime coordinate so I'm still a beginner. But I really love the roses and creamy colors. 

Thank you all for reading! Check out the Lolita Blog Carnival, and read the rest of the girls' posts ♥

Yours Truly, Jamie♥


  1. I love the hime coordinate so much!

  2. The last one is my favourite <3 I love hime, even if I don't ever wear it, because I think it should be kept for very special occasions!!

    1. I love hime too. It's probably my favorite lolita style. Thanks so much for the comment ♥

  3. I love the first and third the one. The latter of which could perhaps be called dark sweet lolita? Or maybe dark hime?

    1. Bittersweet I think it's called. Thanks for your comment! ♥
