Sale Alert: Lolita Blouse Half-Off at April Cornell
So the blouse I got was this one; Patricia Ladies Blouse. It is really worth every penny. I bought it on sale and it seemed to sell out right after I placed my order so I didn't do a youtube review because I thought it would not make sense to promote something no longer available... But now it's back! The lace is top notch, the sizing is very loose with a lot of roominess/modesty in it's fit and the cotton feels so tissue-soft that it's perfect for all weather (best under a jsk). I bought this as my "dressy" blouse and so far a lot of people have noticed and complimented me on how detailed it is. Oh and it washes really well. And the sleeves have a ton of poof. I hang it up to dry, just to be careful with the lace though.
Also, in that same order I got this; Harper Ladies Jacket. It's a very thick material and it looks really interesting. It's definitely a bolero-cut that just covers the bosom. I love how long the sleeves are and the collar wraps around in a very neat manner. Oh! And the collar can become a hood. It also comes in a rose pink here but I can only speak for the green/sage which is a very light and gentle green leaning more towards "forest" and "moss" and away from "kelly" or "jade". One thing to keep in mind is that it doesn't strech so getting the right size is very important.
Oh! And while I'm ranting about my favorite designer; here are some non-sale items I have not seen in person or own, but that I think might be nice for Lolita;
Extremely Victorian-inspired 3/4 sleeve blouse; Gueneviere Ladies Blouse
Super Lace Peter-pan Collar Long Sleeve; Celeste Ladies Blouse
