Ladies, now this is a topic, I totally agree with ^__^
To explain the challenge: 'Take one staple wardrobe item, like a skirt, JSK, or OP, and make 5 different coordinates with it. May also be great to talk about budget.'
So I'll choose this skirt from Bodyline as the head:
It's a 'Merry Go Round' or something. It's my favourite print from BL and I really like the length. I'm 1,70m tall, that's much for Lolita.
♡ Coord 1: Bow: Claire's 5,95€ Cardigan: Mango (from SALE) 12€ T-Shirt: New Yorker 9,95€ Bow pin: Chocomint 6€ Socks: Bodyline 10€ Shoes: Bodyline (bought second hand) 15€ skirt: Bodyline 21€ Bag: Accessorize (from SALE) 15€ This is the cheapest coord. Very simple and casual.
I have also taken some detail photos. Here you can slightly see, that the icecream top is glittering ^__^
♡ Coord 2: Valetta: Angelic Pretty / Dreamy Horoscope 28€ Blouse: Offbrand from China 16€ skirt: Bodyline 21€ Necklace: MeltyWish 17,90€ Socks: Bodyline 5€ Shoes: Bodyline 42€ Bag: Metamorphose temps de fillé (bought second hand) 35€ A coord with some pieces of my wardrobe, who I'm wearing very often.
This is a super cheap blouse, but it's very comfy and I think it's the most worn Lolita blouse I have in my wardrobe. ^__^ This is thise Dreamy Horoscope Valetta. I wear it a waaay too much atm.
Never worn this socks in black, only in blue with my pastel JSK... but I think I should wear them too next time. They're so pretty♥
Yes I have the bag in pastel lavender, because I've bought the JSK first in this colour ^__^
♡ Coord 4: Bow: offbrand from China 5€ Blouse: Bodyline 21€ Necklace: MeltyWish 19,95€ skirt: 21€ Socks: Angelic Pretty / Candy Border OTK 19€ (bought second hand) Shoes: Secret Shop RHS 25€ (bought second Hand) Bag: Bodyline 5€
Long long time I've waited to get these Candy Border OTK in this colour for a fair price.
