It depends entirely on the full coord. Usually ivory leans more toward Classic and white leans more toward Sweet, so if you’re doing a coord that already combines those styles that’s probably one of the easiest ways to have both ivory and white. There’s really no definite answer though because it depends on the situation.
I’m not sure why you would match lace to the petti though. Your petticoat should not be showing at all so that shouldn’t matter.
Hello~ I was planning on buying Bodyline’s l365 in pink, these shoes in white, and two of this purse (one in pink and one in brown). I was wondering, will the white shoes and brown purse look right with this dress, or should I also buy a pair of brown shoes as well? I have Bodyline’s Balloon Bears skirt in mint and Chocoberry skirt in purple that would look cute with the brown shoes and brown purse, so the shoes would have more use to them than just that jsk.
I also plan on buying Infanta’s Dolly House skirt in yellow. How would you coordinate that? I was thinking Bodyline’s l301 in off white, white shoes, and the purse I mentioned above in pink, but I’m kind of stuck on what socks to get. What do you recommend?
Response from Lolita Tips:
For that particular dress I would say that you have to either get brown shoes or use the white shoes but add other brown accessories if you wanted to use the brown purse. If the shoes were white, the dress was pink, and the bag was the only thing that was brown it would look very out of place, so keep that in mind. I think that if you’re definitely going to be using the brown shoes with other things you should go ahead and get those and that opens you up for other coordinating possibilities too.
For the Dolly House skirt, your coord sounds fine. For the socks I would say do something with macarons. It would be a good way to get a few colors in there and incorporate a less prominent part of the print. Bodyline’s Socks407 in pink would be perfect and they would help give you a little of the pink from the purse. Then you could accessorize with macaron jewelry.
