I really need to stop buying ;(
Now onto the items!
Jane Marple beret, offbrand headdress, 2 Excentrique earrings, offbrand ring+bracelent, Angelic Pretty headbow, Angelic Pretty canotier, Innocent World bonnet
I thought that I’d sell the bonnet but I’m definitely reconsidering at the moment.
Super duper happy with my Excentrique earrings because they’re screw-ons. They’re really beautiful!
I am so happy with the JM beret because it’s been my dream beret ever since it was released and I was pooped when it was sold out when I asked a shopping service to get it for me. It’s made of real rabbit fur and it’s soooo soft! The brooches are pictures printed on a felt-like material, which is kind of odd and feels a tad cheap. Also, a weird thing I noticed was that the cameo brooch from my hat looks a lot like the cameos on my Meta dress’ buttons:
Jane Marple skirt, Metamorphose beret, Metamorphose socks
Victorian maiden jacket, Juliette et Justine bolero, Moi-même-Moitie bolero
The JetJ bolero is a size 1 and I think that it may be slightly small for my bust, but I’m going to see if I can work it with some outfits. I thought that the JetJ bolero was made of chiffon so I was really surprised to find out that it was made of heavy cotton. I had several of the “this isn’t chiffon and light?” moments during this package session that my friend joked and said, “Do you not read the information about materials?”.
I’m really happy with the Moitie bolero because I’ve been wanting one of their tulle boleros for a long time so when I saw this one, I bought it immediately. I’m pretty sure that it’s going to be a piece that I wear often with my dresses.
Victorian maiden overdress, Juliette et Justine coat
I hope to find the same JetJ coat in gold. The coat doesn’t match anything that I own, colour-wise, but I think that it would look really lovely with my white dresses.
Emily Temple Cute
The Meta dress is a dress that I’ve wanted ever since it’s release and I’ve regretted not buying it when it was first released. It looks like a 1920s dress or a more modern version of a 1900s-1910s children’s sack dress that I loved i! My first choice colourway is navy but god knows when that will ever pop up, so when I saw the ivory colourway, I bought it immediately. It’s such a comfortable dress that I know that I’m going to keep it until the day it falls apart. I hope to find the navy version one day.
Innocent World, Angelic Pretty
I hated Wrapping Ribbon when I first saw it but the more I looked at this jsk, the more I loved it. I thought that the bodice was made of high quality satin or sateen and that the dress would be very light and flowy but au contraire, the bodice is made of burberry fabric (I think that’s heavy cotton?) and the dress is quite heavy. The thoughts of wearing this dress casually on a hot summer day has gone out the window :(
Innocent World capelet and dress, Angelic Pretty, Kazuko Ogawa
I am SOOOOOOOO happy I got the AP dress because it’s a dream! I guess some people might say that the dress will make me look like a overgrown baby, but I like to think that I’m going to look like an antique porcelain doll. A GIRL CAN DREAM. It’s a pretty old piece (the owner suspects it was released in 2003-2004) and it’s beautifully made. At first I thought that it was the white version of one of my dream AP pieces, but it isn’t. The design is very similar but the material is completely different. I’m still on the hunt for the High Neck Shantung OP but this dress is definitely a keeper. It’s probably my favourite piece from this entire haul.
Kazuko Ogawa is a brand I loved when I first got into lolita so to see on of the dresses I’ve wanted on Yahoo! Japan Auctions made me go bananas. I was so glad that there was a BIN option because I wouldn’t even know what to put as a max bid. I’m a sucker for nun dresses and there is this one Moitie nun dress that’s also been a dream dress foreverrrr (which I missed out on when it was sold on YJA), but now that I found this dress, I’m not too pooped about the Moitie nun dress. I thought that this dress was made of polyester and had an elastic waist, but I was wrong on both accounts. The original page for the item on Kazuko Ogawa did mention a velveteen version, which is what my dress is. I would have preferred the polyester version but I don’t mind the velveteen since now I can stop lusting after the other Moitie nun dress, which is also made of velveteen. The dress needs a good steaming, which I hope will take out all the wrinkles!
Baby the Stars Shine Bright, Juliette et Justine
I sold my Feerie because I was annoyed by the straps but somehow I decided that I wanted the blue colourway. We’ll see if it’s a keeper or not! Maybe because I missed out on the AatP’s Midsummer reserves that I felt that I needed to get this dress. Hrmmmm…
Metamorphose, Victorian maiden, Victorian maiden
I sold my Classical Bouquet Doll dress before but regretted a year later or so. Since I lost some weight since the time I bought it, I thought that it would fit me perfectly, but it doesn’t ;( Before, the bust fit but the waist felt a bit tight, but now, my boobs feel a tad constrained but the waist area is pretty loose. AGH!
I LOVEEEE gobelin prints and I’m really surprised that this gobelin dress is so light. My other VM dress made of gobelin is really heavy and thick, but this dress is very light in comparison and perfect for autumn weather. I adore the buttons in the front and thank goodness that it has a zipper back because I would hate having to button myself into this dress.
