Skirt: Metamorphose Temps de Fille
Blouse/JSK/Socks/Hairbow: Innocent World
Just a casual outfit with my Cinderalla Jewelry skirt! It came with a gigantic pin-on back bow, which I’ve never actually worn before because it’s just too large if I’m wearing a cardigan or anything that would have to drape over it. I love the skirt though, because it goes with all of my favorite color combinations: pink, lavender, and black!
I really wanted an excuse to wear my awesome new tights from Holley Tea Time, so I decided to build an outfit around them. They’re really comfortable and actually quite thick! I was pleasantly surprised at how opaque the print remained even when stretched out, and the tights themselves are really soft and pliable. I appreciate the waistband being soft woven so it doesn’t dig into my belly.
~Strawberry Cream a la Mode Girl~
The Mode Girl print from Angelic Pretty has always been one of my “dream prints” and I was super excited to get the skirt and headbow together for fairly cheap because the pearl chain was broken. That was an easy fix to do, and it’s as good as ever now! I’m sad I didn’t get the matching vest in the set, but that’s rarely sold alone and I can make do without it easily. I wore this to go wedding dress hunting with THE SUPER AWESOME JAZZMOTH, and we successfully found her a SUPER AWESOME WEDDING DRESS with equally awesome veils and accessories!! <3<3<3
~Wine & Music~
Or just a wine-colored musical skirt? This skirt was one of the first Lolita pieces I bought, and I now have it in all three colorways (black, bordeaux, and pink) because I just love it that much. I’m a total sucker for musical prints, and the skirts are just very well designed and constructed. The skirt is the perfect volume for a petticoat, in fact has a built-in petticoat, and has lovely cotton lace and a very comfortable and sturdy half-elastic waistband.
One of my favorite Bodyline gems, this skirt is just so simple yet classic, and can really be dressed up or down as appropriate for the occasion. I generally pair it with some sort of mainly black/white outfit, but there are in fact bits of lavender that I’d eventually like to try to bring out with a coordinate.
Wearing this JSK with brown always evokes a sense of autumn for me, and I love how the small bits of earth tones within the floral pattern can really be accentuated. Not only does all the shirring in the straps and back make this JSK super comfortable, it’s great for layering for all temperatures \(^o^)/
~Reading the Leaves~
One really wonderful thing about this skirt is that there are so many colors that it can really coordinate with just about any relatively plain top/sock/shoe combination. And because it’s somewhat longer, it’s great for wearing in the autumn and pairing with autumn colors, like this sage cardigan <3
