It’s Bodyline’s L009.
It’s this one from Atelier Boz.
I don’t know of anywhere offline really but Bodyline has a few lavender blouses which would arrive pretty quickly if you were to pay a little extra for EMS. Something else you could try is posting an urgent WTB to sales communities and you may have luck getting more options that could be shipped quickly to you that way. One more thing I can think of is that Kitty Carousel has a few second hand lavender tops. They don’t have much but they ship fairly quickly so it may be worth a look.
I don’t see any reason it wouldn’t.
Not really. You can do plenty of great coords where they don’t match as long as they both fit in with the rest of the coord. It’s just generally a good way to go when you’re not entirely sure what to do with one or the other.
I don’t think it would look great. It also wouldn’t make much sense seeing as it’s a velvet dress so blouse or not it’s going to be warm and it just looks like a dress that should be worn in Winter.
You certainly can. You’ll often see them with blouses that have a Peter Pan collar and the straps will be under the collar. Most dresses that have those straps also make them detachable so you can take them off and even if they aren’t you can tuck them into the front of the dress instead of wearing them.
A high collar would work nicely because it wouldn’t get in the way of the lace detailing at the neckline of the dress. I think something in a light, flowy fabric would look great and give it a soft, romantic look. This might be a good option. I’m not a fan of how it looks on its own but I think it looks gorgeous with JSKs. Or if you would prefer something solid you could do something like this which is fairly simple but also very elegant.
You could also do something with a square neckline, even if it does cover the lace on the neckline of the dress it’ll be fine if you choose something that is just as pretty. You could go super elaborate and do something like this (although personally I would remove the bows from the sleeves I think they look a little silly.) Or you could go less elaborate with something like this which wouldn’t cover the neckline of the dress at all and would give you a little window for a necklace.
Don’t be scared to use a shopping service, they open up so many new opportunities for you to shop places you otherwise couldn’t. Good shopping services like TaoBaoNow are easy to use and painless I promise!
Because of the cute sailor collar, weather permitting you wouldn’t necessarily need a blouse. For weather where you would want a blouse though I would say to go with a somewhat simple high collared blouse like they have the JSK shown with. It’s cute but it doesn’t cover up any of the dress or take away from the sailor collar. You could use this one and remove the bow and it would be perfect (I actually think that might be the one they have with it too.)
Personally I would go with 301 for your blouse in which case white is all that’s left and that’s fine, a white blouse will work with that skirt. There’s just something about the way 523 is shirred that reminds me of the Michelin Man. It would probably look fine under a JSK but I’m not sure about it with a skirt. And the shoes are cute, they would work fine.
