Resolutions for the New Year

At the start of 2015, I didn't really set myself any goals for the new year because well, honestly I'm horrible at keeping to them. But I really wanted to make changes for 2016 and I'm determined to stick with it this year. As a pledge to myself, I wanted to share my three lolita/otome related new year resolutions! Did you set any lolita related resolutions this year?

1. Wear the dresses I didn't wear last year
I have a decent size wardrobe with so many prints and dresses that I love, but I never seem to be able to wear them all in one year. Sometimes I end up wearing the same dresses over and over but this year I'll try to make an effort to wear the ones gathering a bit of dust in my wardrobe first.

2. Only buy wishlist items
No, this doesn't mean my wishlist is a mile long and that I'll add any and everything I want to it although that would be a wonderful loophole to my resolution. I think I've reached a stage where I'm more than content with what I already own and I only covet a few more items. I'm not sure what the brands will bring in 2016 but my goal is to find the few dresses on my wishlist (and for a reasonable price only!).

3. Buy a new pannier for otome style
This might seem a little trivial but it's something I keep putting off because I'm buying other things and forget about the essentials! I'm still using my very first lolita pannier that I purchase from Bodyline when I started. I stitched layers of organza to it but since it's still so deflated it's quite alright for otome dresses. But I think it's high time to replace the dying pannier with a new one, and I'm not putting it off any longer!

I think three resolutions should be easier to handle, right? Hopefully I can fulfill and keep these resolutions over the year. Wishing you all the best for the new year and here's to achieving new goals!


  1. Same here with the 1st and 2nd resolution: I still have main pieces that I didn't wear yet and I'm trying my best to stick with my wishlist items, but my wishlist is pretty big for now :/ My first petticoat was from Bodyline too and it also got deflated very quickly, last year I bought a new one with lots of poof and it was the best purchase ever! Happy belated New Year!

    1. Finding the perfect petticoat is so hard because you need a different shape depending on the dress. I have a pink cupcake one from classical puppets for lolita and it's pretty good. But for otome I've been very... stingy, maybe? Haha! I hope you can fulfil your new year resolutions too, dear! <3<3
