A back log of outfits and an attempt at boy style. Constrictive criticism welcome.  

It's been a long while since I last posted. Oh man. Most recent outfits will be at the towards the bottom. This fall I got to help out at this super awesome vintage clothing store and got to wear lolita every day it was a great way to find out I really needed to over haul my wardrobe.

Workout fit so light petti.
Jsk: Triple Tart- AP
Blouse: Innocent World
Underskirt: Cornet
Tight: off brand
Headband: Sweet Mildred

Another Work outfit. Looks back I don't think this one turned out super great, not enough cream all around... I'll have to re-do it at somepoint
Jsk: Time of the Roses Jsk II- AATP
Blouse: Innocent World
Socks: Btssb

More work outfits, I really really liked this one.
Cutsew: off brand
Cami: Meta
Skirt: Meta
Underskirt: Cornet
Tights: off brand
Bow: made by a lj user

My outfit for ILD.
Jsk: Elegy
Blouse: Bunny House
Socks: Baby
I can't say enough good things about Elegy. Seriously. I love her work so much.

I got to fill in at the vintage clothing store I worked at this fall. It was tons of fun getting to go back and a great excuse to dress up. I wanted to go for a very dolly old school kuro look and I think it turned out nicely. I left off my best petti since the store is really narrow and I didn't wan't to knock things over.
Outfit Run down:
Jsk: Elegy
Blouse: Mystery Garden
Bloomer and Headband: Sweet Mildred
Socks: Baby

Left: I wore to tea with a friend.
Pure old school love.
I'm thinking my petti might be the wrong shape for the dress, anyone else think it looks a little odd?
Jsk: Meta
Under skirt: Cornet
Blouse: Bunny House
Bloomers: Sweet Mildred
Socks: Baby
Head dress: Innocent World

Right: Going to the bank and run errands
I love this jsk. It is my most worn item, other then those socks. I'd love to get it in other colors
Jsk: Gina- Innocent World
Blouse: Innocent World
Socks: Baby

Today's look, since I had the day off I dressed up to go get my coffee, make up is on the very basic side.
I really need to dress up more. Its just so cold and windy. I can't wait for spring to hit.
Blouse: Bunny House
Socks: Btssb

And here's the attempt at boystyle....

Not sure if the styles for me as much as I like it. I had no idea what to put on my head. Thoughts? ( help?)
Constrictive criticism on all outfits would be awesome.

You're improving a lot!
I think a mini hat would do great with your kodona outfit

I think really tucking in the top for your boy style coordination would make it look more put-together. Some sort of hair accessory would pull it all together. Mini top hats can go bad really quickly so a fairly simple one is your best bet. Putumayo has some really nice hair accessories for boy style right now. The only thing about the rest is that I think some of the upper coordinates would benefit from a bigger petticoat. I really like your style!

I think I'll have to switch out the top as its pretty bulky sweater and won't tuck in neatly. I'll have to check out Putumayo- I often forget about them, but that's a really good idea.

Not sure if you're asking for concrit on your ouji coord only or on everything, but here's what I think about your ouji coord: I think styling your hair (more) would take the coord a long way. With the way your hair's parted, maybe an accessory like a crown? I personally don't like mini hats since I feel like they're hard to pull off, but it certainly doesn't hurt to try~ Also, the shirt. I feel like it's too casual-looking. I think switching it out for a blouse (that's not super girly) and a vest would look nicer and more cohesive. Tucking it in would look kinda weird and create a lot of bulk in the waist area, in my opinion, because the material looks fairly thick and it isn't exactly form-fitting either.

I'm not to big on mini hats either. I will look into a crown. I'll work on the hair, I've cut it so its being a little strange at the moment. I took a gamble with that sweater, all my blouses have pretty girl cuts and since I was going got a more casual school boy-ish. I appreciate the advice, I'll try to pull something better together for my next post.
