AatP Pirate Lucky Pack contents! 
21st-Jan-2013 02:50 pm
Hi all, thought I'd share what I received in my lucky pack... am thrilled with my print coord and the contents of my pack for the most part. Only a few things I'll be selling, which makes me pretty happy!

My prized coord:
Poison de lámour Princess JSK, Bonnet in navy, and Queen of Snow and the Magic of Whiteness OTKs in off-white
Poison JSK bonnet Snow OTKs
This dress is just stunning! I've sold off quite a few of my navy dresses and have really been feeling that loss lately. So this coord has gone a ways to remedying that! My collection is also really sweet, but I'm starting to feel my age and am trying to graduate to a more mature look, so this elegance is a very welcome to my wardrobe! And I've always wanted to try a bonnet but have been too afraid it'd look stupid on me, and as such didn't want to take the expense. So I'm happy I received the bonnet instead of a standard headbow, as I have way too many and am currently suffering from headbow fatigue. :p

Here are the stock photos:

Note: my socks have baby blue roses instead; change after stock photos available?

Transparent Knitting Ribbon Bolero and Drosselmeyer's Wonder Box OTKs in navy w/stock photos:

I don't have a navy bolero, so this is a great addition to my wardrobe. Not to mention how well it coords with my JSK! :) The Drosselmeyer OTKs go well with a couple of other AatP JSKs I own (Drosselmeyer in red and Twilight Circus in purple), so it's really nice to have some options to change up my outfits a bit!

Lace Collar Blouse in black w/stock photo:

I was hoping for a high collar blouse as it would coord better with the things I do have, but this one is so pretty I think I'll hold on to it in the hopes it will work for future outfits! Will go very well with black on black as the sheen and lace will break up the monotone and add more interest.

Jizelia Coat in black w/stock photo:

I've always wanted a coat but cringed at the price point. As I live in SoCal, I can't justify the price since I would use it very seldomly. But I've always wanted the option to wear one on the one or two days a year it's cold down here. :p So getting one in a lucky pack seemed like the best bet, and I'm happy I got one in black as I can wear it with just about everything!

Tent purse in black x gold w/stock photo:

Yessssss!!! This is exactly the purse I was hoping I'd get; I'm too cheap to pay full price for something like this. :p This colorway will go with quite a few of my AatP and AP coords, absolutely love it!

"Budget" Caterina JSK in black and headdress:
Black JSK and headdress
AatP embroidery
These are the items I don't think I'll be keeping. Am thinking this is one of those less expensive starter JSKs you'll find only in store. Cut is the same as their previous Caterina JSK, but with plain cotton fabric and less lace. The embroidery is a nice touch, but the dress and headdress are too... simple? for my taste.

Finally, I got the same stationery and pen as everyone else:

Overall, I am VERY VERY happy with my lucky pack. Am surprised I didn't get one piece of jewelry, but the coord and the versatility of the rest of the items more than make up for that to say the least! Can't wait to step out in my Poison de lámour JSK outfit! :)

Everything looks so gorgeous!
I personally love the simple black jsk :)
21st-Jan-2013 11:12 pm (UTC)
Thank you! And yes it is pretty, it's just not my style. Perhaps if I had a blouse with a pattern and more color to it I could try coording that way, but I'm a print kind of gal. I like lots of color! :)
21st-Jan-2013 11:09 pm (UTC)
Wow! Lovely LP
21st-Jan-2013 11:14 pm (UTC)
Thanks! You got a great set as well! I'm esp. envious of your blouse and the gorgeous GREEN Carousel JSK you got (don't see that color every day). Would like to have a green coord someday! :)
22nd-Jan-2013 01:58 am (UTC)
Yes, green is an underrated color, more people should wear it! :)
21st-Jan-2013 11:15 pm (UTC)
Wow ! That's a very lucky lucky pack (*^^*) The Poison de l'Amour JSK is a beauty !
22nd-Jan-2013 03:11 am (UTC)
Thank you! I couldn't believe my eyes when I pulled it out of the box... I had no idea what to think upon opening and was just wowed when I pulled that piece out. I was pretty floored! :)
21st-Jan-2013 11:15 pm (UTC)
Wow, great items! The print JSK is wonderfully romantic and the solid JSK and coat have nice clean lines. The smaller pieces are really pretty and versatile, too!
22nd-Jan-2013 03:13 am (UTC)
Thank you! I really want to like the black JSK but I hate that cut on me. I put it on again because of the thoughtful comments people have made here, but it just doesn't work well on my body type. Makes me look even flatter than I already am! :p But I agree, the pieces are REALLY versatile, which is exactly what I was hoping for!
22nd-Jan-2013 06:59 am (UTC)
I've totally been there myself. Just because it looks good on the hanger/laid out doesn't mean it's going to look good on a person! Well, at least you mostly lucked out with some amazing pieces!
21st-Jan-2013 11:41 pm (UTC)
That is the luckiest lucky pack I think I've ever seen. *_*
22nd-Jan-2013 03:14 am (UTC)
I know I'm feeling really lucky! It's actually the first lucky pack I've ever purchased despite all the years I've been in the fashion. Makes me wonder if I should try my luck again, or if that would just be pushing it. :p
22nd-Jan-2013 12:01 am (UTC)
wow your pack is awsome! i'm jealous :P i think you didn't get any jewlery because of the expensive bonnet probably :)
22nd-Jan-2013 03:16 am (UTC)
Thank you! That's exactly what I was thinking too, though someone else got the Poison de l'Amour coord with bonnet as shown in the teaser pic and still got quite the nice necklace. Just the luck of the draw I suppose. I'm still feeling really lucky! :)
22nd-Jan-2013 12:17 am (UTC)
wow. luckiest lucky pack EVER! so awesome~!
22nd-Jan-2013 03:24 am (UTC)
Thank you! It makes me want to personally thank whomever put my pack together. I can't believe the care they put into coordinating the pieces in my pack!
22nd-Jan-2013 12:39 am (UTC)
you were luckier than most girls! this is a fabulous pack
22nd-Jan-2013 03:18 am (UTC)
Thank you! I can't get over the fact I got the princess JSK in navy. Looking at the print, it's probably my favorite out of the cuts/colorways offered. Too lucky!
22nd-Jan-2013 12:51 am (UTC)
Ok, yours is now my favorite pack of the bunch. I love love love the jsk + bonnet, the cardigan and the bag in those colors!
22nd-Jan-2013 03:20 am (UTC)
Thank you! Those are the exact things that made me over the moon with this pack. I'm so in love with the JSK set and bag!
22nd-Jan-2013 01:03 am (UTC)
This is my favorite of all of them. Wow!!! I love everything in this pack.
22nd-Jan-2013 03:27 am (UTC)
Thanks! My fave too, but I am kinda biased. :p
22nd-Jan-2013 01:08 am (UTC)
oh. my. god. love it so much!
22nd-Jan-2013 03:56 am (UTC)
Thanks, me too! :) :)
22nd-Jan-2013 01:23 am (UTC)
Wow - such a wonderful lucky pack!
22nd-Jan-2013 03:57 am (UTC)
I still can't get over how lucky I got too. Novelty still hasn't worn off and I've had it for a week now! If anything, it's been growing more and more on me as I figure out more ways to use the items I received!
22nd-Jan-2013 02:37 am (UTC)
I think yours is my favourite lucky pack I've seen so far!
22nd-Jan-2013 03:59 am (UTC)
Thank you, me too! :D I'm glad everyone is posting theirs, it's fun to see what everybody got!
22nd-Jan-2013 05:28 am (UTC)
oo you got a really nice pack! So envious of your poison l'amour jsk!
22nd-Jan-2013 10:10 am (UTC)
wow, a new release of caterina? I love that dress... but you say it has another fabric?
But I like the embroidery
22nd-Jan-2013 09:01 pm (UTC)
Yes, it's just cotton fabric... couldn't find anything about it online, so I think it's one of those in-store only items. I think the embroidery is a nice addition as well!
22nd-Jan-2013 10:15 am (UTC)
You are very lucky.
Every item is beautiful.

Cool! Congrats on a great pack! :D
22nd-Jan-2013 06:26 pm (UTC)
This is such a great pack, I like everything you got and to get such a nice print along with other items that match is very lucky. I've never bought a lucky pack because I'm pretty picky and its a bit of a risk to take if you get a pack with nothing you like at all but if I got this one I'd be so happy.
May I ask how much the lucky pack was, there is a hell of a lot in there.
22nd-Jan-2013 08:57 pm (UTC)
Thank you! FYI, mine was the pirate set at 52500yen. Shipping was an additional 7100yen to California.

The link for the lucky packs is still up if you want to see what they were offering:

I would love to see what people got in that Queen set, but I don't know of anyone who ordered it (big spender!!!)
22nd-Jan-2013 11:07 pm (UTC)
Wow, you got such a lot for the price of the pack & even with the additional shipping costs it's a really great deal :)
23rd-Jan-2013 04:22 am (UTC)
Very nice! Thanks for sharing!
23rd-Jan-2013 02:39 pm (UTC)
I wish I would have such a big amount with LPs too.
I am afraid to get an ugly one so I am not going to buy one.
