Closet of Frills: Boxing Day Edition
Old thread in auto-sage, link in next post.
Posting coordinates that weren't really discussed. From cutest to least cute (in my opinion.)
Traditionally, I believe it is the name of the day after Christmas.
I also think that the OP coordinate is rather lovely.
I really like that one~
Something looks off with her face...not sure if it's too much shoop.
don't think it's shooped, just over contoured her nose, and her cheeks are chubby but with dimples/dips and uneveness
maybe her nose is natural, it's like that in all of her pictures, and so is her face
I think the bangs are too short and the cardigan doesn't feel lolita enough, but it's a pretty cute coord. She could also use some of those big round glasses and maybe more crosses.
I feel like there's too many things that are off with this coordinate. The wig looks like shite. The dress/blouse isn't flattering on her body shape at all. And then cream socks. when everything else is white?
The picture is so overexposed. I can barely se any details. It's a no from me.
Cute! But that bag needs to go it looks so sad.
Looks like baby's first coord. Those shoes need to go. Also a different headdress, that one looks cheap.
Simple and cute vut those shoes would've match better if they were brown oxfords.
I hate it when noobs don't have a full coordinate and decide to throw random stuff together. This looks absolutely hideous.
Those tights look so tacky.
Wtf is going on with her blouse? The neckline is cute but those sleeves are just like regular office blouse sleeves, hideous.
Its a regular safe coord. Nothing to see here.
I feel so conflicted about this one. I like it but at the same time so many things could be improved. Like those flat shoes. I feel the toghts should've veen white with blavk shoes. The hat is cute tho.
Honestly I think the overall coord is fairly meh/nitpickable, the blouse looks awkward with the necklace and neckline of the dress and there's a sweet bag and shoes with a more classic-gothic dress, but since her hair and makeup are on point, she's cute, and she's a normal weight she gets away with it.
I can't get over how cute this one is.
The dress itself looks more like sweet-classic to me anon. I don't get why a coord can't have a mix of sweet/classic elements- if it works, it works.
I agree about the neckline though, a square collared blouse would work better. However the necklace covers most of the neckline so I'm not too chuffed.
The posing is so awkward on this one, we can't see most of her skirt. Coord wise I'm not a fan of that blouse at all. The sleeves look kind of frumpy.
Isn't dip-dye mainstream by now? I don't see how it's tumblr???Unless we're talking about pastels.
Arthael is really good at putting together busy coords! I wouldn't even have thought of using brown with the green and red.
The sleeves look like flamenco sleeves.
Really tired of all these rehashed Madonna crowns with stained glass print coords.
I wanted to like that but the underdress is freaking ridiculous. Looks like her arms are fucking exploding. The Madonna crown is really nice and I love stained glass prints but this is so overdone I agree
Maybe she actually was using it as an umbrella? I only have one parasol/umbrella in off-white that matches the MAJORITY of my wardrobe, but if it's raining and it doesn't match I'm still bringing it cuz fuck getting wet.
Yeah, a white umbrella in a pink and white coordinate is definitely shoehorned in.
Not sure if some of these are reposts, bear with me.
Wreaths as headdresses seem to be the trend this time of the year.
Is that a dead animal on her shoulder?
I think wigs look better than real hair for lolita, as long as they're styled properly and worn with the right make-up to make them look natural. Obvious wigs make even nicer coords look like this shit. Face it anon, it's the appropriate word for it.
I love the atmosphere of this photo.
That jacket is wine / black / gold, not brown
I'll bet her socks are black/gold too.
Dem bursting seams. I feel bad for whoever bought all that overpriced shit she was selling.
Like seriously this girl and chin-chan are so deep in denial about their measurements I don't think anyone can save them.
If you have to shove your tits UNDER THE WAIST of a dress it doesn't fit. It just looks disgusting. I wish these girls had friends like mine that are honest when something looks shitty!
Her coord is ok but it's just not fitting well and her face needs more makeup or something.
I used to like this print but now that it has become associated with her, I don't anymore.
It's like sausage stuffed in a too small casing...
Does anyone have any more caps? This is the last I got.
i want to love this because the dress looks amazing from what I can tell but it doesn't seem to fit her that well. i also hate all the random blue and think her hair and makeup could be better
That dress seems way too big for her
No wonder she was worried to post
Not sure what to think about this.
I wouldn't have used sax in that coord but she looks cute.
I don't get what is happening with her wig but I like the coord.
Dress is too big/long for her
add lipstick, mascara
the cape dwarfs her tiny frame
If she had better fitting clothing it might be cute, but here she looks like a child wearing a woman's outfit, on a much taller girl the cape might be nice.
A few thread ago we were talking about a new trend with lights
She is cute, but the pastels don't look right with the navy. If there were just some small pastel things sprinkled here and there, maybe, but as they are, they just don't look like they belong.
saw this, started laughing. will probably be deleted soon.
I like her coord and both her wig & make-up look nice too (I guess that was what the face shot was for?).
The pictures are a bit fuzzy but I think it's deliberately done with a filter? I kinda like the "old" look it gives.
But umm, she shouldn't do that weird duck face thingie with her mouth, I found it a little distracting.
I've never seen her wear a dress that actually fitted her. Her coords aren't bad (not good either though) but they look really bad because nothing fits.
A badly fitting dress can completely ruin a coord imo!
She also needs different glasses, ones that look nicer with Lolita.
If I were a buyer though, I'd want to know if she stressed the seams like that, cause that is pretty close to damaging the seams.
It's good you mentioned that.
I think this was shot by the Ooh La LA photographer that does all those really bad pics for the SoCal comm. He shoots everyone to he'll and back and adds a shitty filter. Which is why her selfie looks great but the cord shot is wonky
Those black socks from target ruins everything
Sorry. That's me, I have trouble coording that jsk and wanted to shoehorn in the boots since I was given them for Christmas. I was trying to do one of those vintage looking casual coords that normally people like. I don't post most of my coords to CoF, when I do I genuinely want concrit but lately haven't been getting any.
Oh god the socks are apparently burgundy argyle socks and she's getting super defensive that they, along with burgundy shoes, match the poop brown purse and the rest of the outfit.
How do you fuck up that badly? I understand being a poorfag but just buy bodyline stuff to match then? Bless the people that have the patience to help her tho
I can look past the lack of a good matching bag when it comes to newbies but
>buys a pink cosplay wig but can't even afford simple white OTKs that would actually match her outfit
>I could literally swallow everything
this got some reddit connotation awhile back and it's somewhat impossible to use the word "literally" without the actual meaning now on 4chan without someone throwing a grammar fit or just yelling reddit as loud as they can through a keyboard.
The colours in this coord really bother me. Maybe it's the lighting but her whites look really mismatched. I'm not fond of how her hair colour looks with her coord either. Her shoes are also completely out of place. I get that she's going for a white thing but the crosses make no sense with the theme and pulls the focus away from her main piece too much. It's overall not too bad an attempt at a more casual coord with this print though.
What cracks me up is how she says "can you believe these two pictures are the same person? I look Sooo Much better in my selfie." Or something like that. Like no, you look like shit regardless of the picture angle.
Guess she deleted the pic.
That fail sage
I really like this coord
194 likes for that sad hair
Coord is cute, but I don't like the wig, looks too shiny. I also don't like the thick black glasses with the coord, but if she needs them to see...
I'm not sure if it's the hairstyle, glasses, or both, but it doesn't flatter her face. I feel like a hairstyle with a lot of volume would look good here.
I don't really see the Snow Maiden in this coord.
Her hair is too flat for the hat, she needs a wig or something to balance out the volume.
Not feeling the ankle socks with this coord.
The bow on the chest and underbust ribbon are that maroon color too, from what I can see. I would have preferred a red shoe as well, but I wouldn't say they clash. I'm not a big fan of how different the whites are because the legwear isn't opaque.
If I was serious about spending money on this fashion and I put on a dress this tight you couldn't keep me off the treadmill until it fit a little better.
It wouldn't even take that long, just 2-3 weeks of salad, chicken, and walking/running an hour a day and at least 5 lbs could come off.
Asian girl has a cute asian face too.
What a cute cape. Doesn't work with the too big dress and too plain make up though.
Aww she reminds me of Princess Elizabeth in the 1940s in the highlands.
Impossible to actually see the coord with all the filters she threw on these, jesus.
This girl looks really familiar to me... Did anyone catch where she's from?
I love her aesthetic. It's more along the natural-kei lines for me but it's in that area that crosses over into classic lolita, so it's fine. I sort of like her natural prettiness instead of a ton of makeup as well, it goes with the look.
Who is she??
She owns so many coveted/new releases though that clearly she has the money to stop and buy accessories that actually match the ones she already owns, no?
I don't know who Lexi is, but I'm not her. I was just making a statement on complete coords from a certain series. Like yes, they're good. But they're supposed to be. Why give asspats for choosing a blouse that goes w/ everything else from a series.
>shiny plasticky ankle socks
>mismatched bright pink clown shoes
Any of these by themselves wouldn't be so bad but together they make her look like a sissy.
It's a bodyline dress. I don't think it's meant to be cosplay but it's got that cosplay look.
idk it's one of their few that I like.
She posted in our comm about wanting to buy a replica. One girl who has an indie brand pointed out that she claims to be starting her own brand so she shouldn't be buying replicas. After seeing this, she shouldn't be buying more dresses if she doesn't even have anything that matches what she has already.
Even with a job it is pretty hard to have consistently new main pieces to wear daily. Most people have other things to spend money on. I wonder if she sells a lot to keep up with the buying.
thanks for your feedback, i won't be posting as much in the coming year in any case
i have a part time job but no real expenses, just things like my phone and travel fares, to pay for. i sell some dresses, but it's mostly just working and keeping an eye out for good prices on second hand pieces
it might seem that way because i ty to wear all of my pieces, but it's not really that much compared to some other people
Don't mind the salt. The fact is there aren't enough people posting daily coords. Your coords are simple, but it's not a contest, and it's nice to see someone simply enjoying what they're wearing.
+1 for keeping your spending priorities in order too. The one thing I just can't understand is going into massive debt just for clothes.
What the fuck is this
I was just about to post this. Fucking why? Not everything needs to be made lolita. Could you imagine the shitstorm if some vanilla face tried to pass this crap off as lolita?
Someone tells her the midriff doesn't work for lolita. She counters with
> the belly shirt is an essential part of a saree for me
Great, but it looks ridiculous with lolita. And since she's wearing a sari-themed lolita coord, I'm gonna go with the lolita rules trumping what she likes in a sari.
She asks for concrit, but I bet she won't take any.
Nah. She doesn't seem like the type to accept that her co-ords are shit and people want to help her. Anytime I've seen her post on COF and someone offers up concrit, she ignores it, basically says, "well i like it so fuck off", or gets pissy.
Ugh. I love women who wear sari. A childhood friend of mine got married in one and it was gorgeous. I think if there was a lolita dress already with the beading and patterns of many sari it would be a lot better. This just looks a mess. I would love to see a JSK or OP with elaborate beading and embroidery instead of just a print. If she could sew, maybe she could make one. Or maybe get it commissioned.
Something similar to AAtp's Scheherazade? But with actual beading and patterns tho.
I don't know like... I feel like with some structure it could be interesting? Even with a sliver of exposed skin. And the sari (?) having kind of a peignoir effect.
Like obviously not traditional lolita but I like the idea in my head. Have a shitty drawing thats probably some form of cultural appropriation
7) 1 or 2 outfits per post, 3 individual posts per person, per day. If you have more than three, please post it on a different day.
Where do you get that you can't post multiple outfits per week out of that?
I didn't mean multiple per week. I meant like on daily lolita, where people wouldn't post everyday necessarily but would rather post every week or two with several outfits in one post.
Like you posted, CoF sets 2 outfit per post limit, making the above impossible. People were complaining about people posting every day, which is why I even brought it up in the first place.
yes, it did get deleted.
I have no idea if this is traditionally correct or not as it was done with minimal reading, but I tried to make a saree inspired OP design with some traditional gota embroidery and draped pleating.
This, I love her coords! They may not be "perfect", but lolita is a fashion after all, and all of this matchy matchy nonsense feels like the product of a fame hungry community.
These girls are super cute! Only nitpick is to switch out the black shoes for light blue ones for the girl on the right.
I would have liked to see longer socks on them in addition to switching the black shoes, but that's really just my own personal preference talking. Other than the shoes this is adorable. Cat ears done right.
Pretty sure this girl is selling/just sold this dress on LM like last week, why is she wearing it here?
Her face doesn't really seem to suit sweet lolita.
adorable and simple
