Do you have any favorite Sugary Carnival coords?
I think this would have to be my favorite sugary carnival coord:
I love it because it’s different and very successful in that. Sugary Carnival is almost always super Sweet, in fact it’s a bit of an OTT Sweet staple, and I love this because it proves that you can tone it down a little and it looks gorgeous with Classic elements.
I really like F+F Night Glory dress but I've never bought a print before and this one strikes me as pretty bold, and it seems like prints fall out of style so fast in the Lolita world. Would it be better to start with a different print dress or... ? orz.
I would say the type of fabric is much more bold than the print. That being said I think it’s gorgeous and sort of timeless. I don’t think you have anything to worry about. And prints don’t necessarily fall out of style that fast. I still see prints being worn that have been around for years. While they may not be as popular as they once were it’s just because there are new things and more things to wear than there were in their glory days.
I'm planning on doing a faun/deer themed coord, and was thinking that instead of buying a skirt, I would make one since I have the skills. But now I'm stuck on what kind of design I should do. Some plain color, find a cool print? I can't decide. The rest of my coord is pretty basic. White tights, brown shoes, white blouse, a deer "fur" cape, and antlers with flowers (yet to be made, I'll base the flowers colors off of the skirt). Thank you!!!
I would go for a print to make things more interesting. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a deer print either. It could be a floral or forest theme, just something to add some color and interest to the coord.
is there an iconic classic lolita print in the way that "Sugary Carnival" is iconic for sweet lolita?
Not that I can really think of. I can think of a lot of Classic prints, but none that are the print like that. I find that Classic tends to focus less on prints than Sweet does and more on the coord as a whole if that makes any sense.
How do you feel about AP's new Chocolate print? I feel like they make like 5 chocolate prints a year? I never considered chocolate one of their obligatory themes (like their obligatory toy themed print) but after Chess Chocolate I swear they're making at least 2 a year.
I love it! I think it’s super cute. I really love the brown on brown. They have been doing a lot with chocolate, but it’s popular so why would they stop? I’m certainly not complaining.
Is the Sweet Cream House OP from Angelic Pretty a good dress to wear during the summer?
I don’t see why not. Add some cute ankle socks, Tea Party shoes or Lolita sandals, and maybe a boater hat for an extra Summery look, add some matching jewelry and it would make a great Summer dress.
I was wondering if you knew of any jellyfish themed dresses or skirts other than the Lost in Sea Blue series?
Do you think Antique Clock is overdone or over worn, even in colors other than gray? I was considering purchasing the OP in pink and using it in a coord with a lot of black (sash around the waist, tights, cardigan, and head bow all in sparkly black) for a classic/slightly bittersweet look, but I'm afraid the print is too overdone by this point...
Personally, yes, I do think Antique Clock is overdone. Part of it I think is because I see so many coords with it that are very similar to each other and aren’t all that interesting and it’s really just dull. I like the print itself but I’m bored of what I’m seeing with it. If you’re going to get it, I would say just do something fun with it. It has so much potential and the times I’ve seen that potential reached are few and far between.
Hello there! I was wondering if you knew of any Gothic/darker-colored Classic dresses with a library or book theme to them? I would need something from an indie brand/taobao shop that offers custom plus sizing for a 116 cm bust/105 cm waist.
I thought of this one which can be made custom and there is also a skirt from the same shop that is similar but I don’t like the print as much. I’m not entirely sure how I feel about the dress but something tells me it’s one of those things that looks kinda blah on the mannequin but looks much better on a person.
I can think of a lot of dresses that have had book prints but none that are currently available or custom sized except for Dream of Lolita which I don’t particularly like to recommend.
