The print is amazing but why is the mermaid melting? XD

In the original Hans Christian Anderson story, the mermaid dies and melts into foam on the sea at the end.

Not as impressive as I thought it would look like... a little bit old-fashioned, both in print and dress design.
This is my least favourite AatP series from the past two years, but it's just me.

I've noticed that baby is starting to get a little nostalgic in their designs.

Oh gosh, I was so hoping the skirt wouldn't look so gorgeous, but low and behold, karma sucks like normal. ;c Time for major savings!!

I'm kind of digging the JSK too, but I could live without the OP.

Colors? Bianca, Ecru and Madonna look awesome to me. All would work for the skirt; more towards the Ecru for the JSK.

I gotta say, I'm really disappointed with the JSK. I love the print, and I love empire dresses, but that extra ruffle around the waist looks extremely unflattering.
13th-Jun-2011 07:39 am (UTC)
I agree, if it didn't have that ruffle I think it would look much better.
13th-Jun-2011 07:16 am (UTC)
The ruffle on the JSK bugs me a bit because it lends a weird sort of colorblocking to the design, but I like the print in off white. I think I'm a touch too old for the print and a 20.5" skirt length, but I do really like it as a skirt.
13th-Jun-2011 07:21 am (UTC)
Underwhelmed. :(
The illustrations are beautiful but I feel like all the detail is crammed into the ovals and the rest of the jsk is just blocks of color. I like it better when the details are sprawled all over. I don't think it reads well from afar.
I also hate the extra ruffle at the JSK's waist and I hate that the bottom ruffle on the jsk is a different color than what the print ends on.

This.
13th-Jun-2011 07:23 am (UTC)
i don't like it

the illustrations are too pretty to not be used in a more prominent way.
13th-Jun-2011 07:24 am (UTC)
Ahhh, I love the print, but I don't love the designs... I won't reserve it, but might try to get it second hand later if it grows on me a bit more :P
13th-Jun-2011 07:36 am (UTC)
I am so disappointed...it honestly looks Bodyline designed it to me. The illustrations are gorgeous, but just the way it's executed overall just seems so amateur.

Granted, I do like the skirt because it utilizes the print best, but I don't think I'll be getting anything from this series. Grr, if only Night Fairy Fantasia came out as a regular skirt!
13th-Jun-2011 08:30 am (UTC)
This was exactly what I thought when I saw it. A bit amateur :( not the best considering it is coming from AatP
13th-Jun-2011 07:38 am (UTC)
As big Yoh's fan, I totally adore the illustfations itself, but I dislike colour chemes and the rest of the print at all at all.
13th-Jun-2011 07:45 am (UTC)
I love Yoh drawing also but the colorways are so odd. I wish there was a mermaid green or something
13th-Jun-2011 07:51 am (UTC)
Not too fond of the print or the designs of either of the dresses, but those colorways are gorgeous.
13th-Jun-2011 07:51 am (UTC)
I honestly thought the name was taken from that sweet lolita print name generator....

I like the skirt but that's pretty much it, I think I'm going to pass :(
13th-Jun-2011 11:41 pm (UTC)
This was my original thought too!
13th-Jun-2011 08:04 am (UTC)
Love the print, it is one of the best so far, but I am disappointed with the execution. I think the jsk is the worst, it looks unflattering. The skirt is relatively ok, even though a bit plain, design-wise.
If the design of the jsk was different, I would be buying one right away
13th-Jun-2011 08:13 am (UTC)
I agree, the JSK looks really unflattering. The OP was too "fancy" and meh. The skirt was OK, but a bit plain I guess. :(
13th-Jun-2011 08:05 am (UTC)
Amazing! I loooove mermaids :3
13th-Jun-2011 08:12 am (UTC)
OMG. It's lovely! And black x purple..! ZOMG. xD :DD
13th-Jun-2011 08:32 am (UTC)
i dislike the designs (and this coming from the girl that pre ordered the peter pan monster Op XD)

The skirt is the best so, that one in red or Navy for me :)
13th-Jun-2011 08:34 am (UTC)
i just like the skirt design, the rest is not my taste. but the print is very nice. but I think i won't buy it
13th-Jun-2011 08:37 am (UTC)
The print is nice, but I don't like the designs unfortunately... :( the JSK looks especially unflattering to me.

Money is safe though XD
13th-Jun-2011 08:48 am (UTC)
Love the print! But even the colours are a bit funky.
I don't know what to do about this one x_x
13th-Jun-2011 08:54 am (UTC)
It seems i'm one of a few who is completely in love with this! The whole theme is so f*cking brilliant and I love how the designs are a little corny. I'm head over heels. Except for the colorways perhaps.. blackxpurple? Really?
13th-Jun-2011 09:01 am (UTC)
I really love this print and the JSK, while it may not be the most flattering shape I'm just chuffed that I'll be able to fit in it without having to alter it.

I just need to magic up some money as the navy colourway is calling to me XD
13th-Jun-2011 09:08 am (UTC)
I love the print but... Would seriously consider the skirt though.
13th-Jun-2011 09:19 am (UTC)
I really like the print but the OP and JSK aren't doing much for me, the skirt is really cute though.
The colours I like most are the blackxpurple (even though it somehow doesn't fit it's theme) and the dark blue one.
13th-Jun-2011 09:47 am (UTC)
I like the skirt but not overwhelmed by it, would like to see the other colours.
13th-Jun-2011 12:02 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I really don't know how the colours will work in person, I wish they had other colour samples. I actually think the black x purple might work the best? Who knows. I'm a sucker for a mermaid print (I mean seriously) but I don't know whether I could wear any of those colourways. Though I love the print, argh.
13th-Jun-2011 09:50 am (UTC)
I think it's boring and I don't like the colors.
