I feel a little guilty to say that at this point, I have not struggled too hard to acquire any items, but I also have yet to own any brand key pieces, which is where the struggle seems to really exist. If I had to choose any item though, I would say my Infanta Charlie’s Toy Factory JSK.
I had seen a replica version of this dress offered on ebay years before I knew where to buy Lolita items, and it sat on my wishlist for ages. When I finally found where to buy the original, I had to wait a little bit to save up, and buy the time I did, it was no longer available in the colorway that I wanted in my size. I was lucky though, and shortly after finding this out, someone put theirs up for sale and I snatched it up. This was one of my two original dream dresses, and the only one I have acquired so far.
