As I wear a mix of classic and sweet, would an off-white/ivory coat be best?
Yes, I would say that’s your best option for a versatile coat.
Hello! It may come off as a really silly question but I was wondering, would it be considered ok wearing a blouse underneath an op? I live in a country that gets extremely cold in winters and wondered if there was an alternative to a bolero! Thanks!
You can wear a blouse under an OP but make sure the necklines go together. A blouse with a Peter Pan collar under an OP with a Peter Pan collar would look weird and bulky, but if you were to wear a blouse with a collar under an OP that just had a square or sweetheart neckline that can look really cute. Or if you wore an OP with a collar with a blouse that didn’t have a collar or if both pieces didn’t have collars.
Do you think this coat would fit comfortably over a bell petticoat? www(.)dreamybows(.)com/princess-lace-ruffle-coat-white~p112(.)html
It doesn’t look like it will fit over a petti at all.
I´m was thinking about wearing gothic lolita to my next meet. It´s cold so I´ll need a jacket/coat, but I don´t have one that is gothic. I have Baby´s Justy coat in black/white and an off brand short black jacket. Can I use on off them (in that case which one do you think work best) or should I chose a style I have a matching coat/jacket?
I think the Baby coat would probably work fine. It is more Sweet but it wouldn’t look terribly out of place in a Gothic coord. The other jacket may be possible too but it’s hard to say without actually seeing it.
I'm moving to Washington next year for college, and I decided that's an excuse for me to pad my wardrobe with warmer dresses and a new pair of boots. I've been eyeing BL's shoe264 or 265 (I think they're the same, but one is higher?) since they're adorable, but also because they have no laces, so no possibility of getting snow in between the tongue and laces when trudging through the Washington winters. Do you think these boots would be okay for cold, rain, and mild snow?
The thing I would worry about the most is the ruffles because I can’t tell how durable they would be. I think overall they would probably be fine but I would definitely suggest spraying them with waterproofing spray before wearing them in wet weather and maybe getting them half a size bigger than you need to give you room for thick socks on those particularly cold days.
Is it possible to layer OPs with blouses in winter, or do you think it would look weird?
It’s definitely possible and I’ve seen it done quite a few times but it depends on the OP. If your OP has a collar already it’s usually not going to look good to shove a blouse under it. But if it has short sleeves and no collar (a square neckline, sweetheart neckline, or something like that) it can work.
