Buttcape's Wardrobe Post 2019

wardrobe banner.jpg

Hello world, I’m kicking 2019 off with a brand new site! What better way is there than to start it off with the annual lolita community wardrobe post. For those unfamiliar with the EGL community, every January lolitas around the world share what’s in their closets. It’s a good way to track your closet over the years. For me, I use it as my yearly inventory check. I missed posting 2018 though and I am now overwhelmed with how much I own.

This year’s post was incredibly rushed. I was on vacation for half of January and when I got back to Texas, I was extremely jetlagged for weeks. I photographed all I could in 7 nights and sadly no pictures on the dressform this time around; I aimed for quantity over quality. Technically this post’s date is February 1, but forgive me. I wasn’t able to photograph everything. My priority was to capture all of the burando then a few major indie brand items. Unfortunately, I had to skip casual cutsews, jewelry, corsets, and shoes; I probably missed a main piece here and there. I’d estimate that I got about 80% done which isn’t bad for how little time I had. Click on a picture to check the item’s name.

Salopettes/Jumperskirts

Skirts

Blouses

Cutsews

Coats/Jacket

Boleros/Cardigans/Knits

Vests

Capes

Buttcapes

Pants

Legwear

Hair Accessories

Congratulations, you’ve reached the end of the post! In total, there are 272 images. That’s more than I was expecting to have and I didn’t even photograph everything. I think I definitely own too many things, so I will be uploading many items for sale over on my LaceMarket shop later this month! Binge watching Tidying Up with Marie Kondo right before making the wardrobe post probably influenced my dread. How will my 2020 wardrobe look I wonder?

New Year, New Site

Welcome to my new site stephano.me! I’m expecting 2019 to be a good creative year for me, so I finally dedicated myself to a domain and new host. Blogger served me well, but I felt it was time to graduate from it. The idea floated around my brain for a few years, but I finally started working on the new site last November. I’d like to thank Grimy of Going Grimy and Katie of neo crystal for encouraging me to make the move. The original launch was supposed to be in January, but life happaned and I didn’t want to launch an incomplete site. Pushing the launch back did give me a lot of time to refine my thoughts while I was vacationing in Japan.

I have a good idea of the kind of new content I want to make. I’m curious about what kind of content you would like to see as well! My older posts are still on the old blog until I can import and reformat them.

Another reason why I wanted to move is to make a blog for my other project Eating with Stephano. Eating with Stephano started in January 2018 and now after one year, I wanted to have a place where I could store all of my photos in a functional way. Though the blog is still under construction right now, follow Eating with Stephano Instagram in the meantime.
