As you will notice I am very generous in my interpretation of old school: mixing new and old releases, mixing materials, but still keeping it pretty monotone and pretty much the same silhouettes. My interpretation of old school is a romantic nostalgic interpretation, a mix of actual items I used to have from when I started in lolita (2001!) and something that looks like or the actual items I wish I had.
And so I present to you select items from my old school corner of my lolita wardrobe. ❤
Metamorphose Temps de Fille - Girly Note Parka, 2008
Through lolita I have met lifelong friends. Many of the garments we bought back then we always made a choice of when selling first asking among the close friend group. We called it "keeping it in the family". This hoodie is one of those items that have changed hands and been kept in the family for a long time. If I remember correctly this hoodie was first bought from Japan by one of my friends, sold to another one of my friends, then bought by me, to be sold to a third friend and then bought back by me again. And here it is! Still with me, cutest hoodie. I wear this a lot with regular sweatpants but it works very good in spring and autumn to substitute a light jacket.
