9th-Sep-2015 01:19 pm - Angelic Pretty Cosmic JSK coords
I just recently got my hands on AP Cosmic JSK in ivory and I'm trying to figure out cute ways to coord it. I really like the dress but I'm at a lost on what to wear with it besides just tossing it onto my body. I was hoping to see some pics of other peoples outfits just to get some kind of idea what to do.

I've been out of the loop of the lolita community for a few years, so I was wondering whether you guys had any recommendations for shops that sell chiffon blouses? I'm looking for one in off-white or cream, ideally 3/4 or princess sleeved, to go with my pockets embroidery JSK (cream, first ed with Marie Antoinette's monogram to the sides).
It doesn't matter what shops you recommend - I'm open to brand, Chinese or Korean taobao shops (although I've got no idea of how to shop from there yet, like I said I've been inactive) or independent brands led by lolitas within the community.

On a slightly related note, is anyone here going to Kamijo's Royal Night in Paris and if so what are you wearing? That's what this outfit will be for!

Thank you! x

What are some new releases or reservations you're excited about?

extra points if you include photos of these releases that way people who don't know about it can see.
5th-Sep-2015 07:23 pm - Cream Fabric Help
doll, isul
Hello all, I'm not sure whether I should be posting this here or at Sew Lolita, as it would kind of fit with both communities, so I'll post it at both...
What I was wondering is, how do you coordinate JSKs that have a cream base colour? I'd like some photos, please, and some advice about my future sewing projects.

4th-Sep-2015 03:34 pm - Help identifying an AP dress?
My friends always seem to have the best luck! First my friend Rosie finds an IW blouse in a goodwill, and now my friend Megan finds an AP JSK with matching headwear. She messaged me with a photo of an Angelic Pretty JSK she just found in a thrift-store and bought this afternoon. I can tell it's an older piece, but for the life of me, I can't find out what it is. Would someone be willing to help me identify her lucky prize?

1st-Sep-2015 06:45 am - Stained Glass Prints
Okay, so I had an inkling of an idea, but before I take any first steps, I was wondering a few things, specifically about stained glass prints in lolita.

Do you like them?
What are your favorite stained glass print pieces?
What are your favorite colorways to see them in?
Do you prefer them on skirts, jsks, or OPs?

Also, because it's related and I'm curious, does anyone know where brands get the windows that they use in their prints?
31st-Aug-2015 11:56 pm - September's theme is work/school

September's theme is...


September is the time for school and those of us that work it’s just another month on the job. So this month we’ll celebrate lolitas at work and school. What things do you do to lolitify your school/work space? Do you deco your binders? Have a locker that could double as a page in the G&LBs? Is your cubical a shrine to Mana? Or are you more subtle and make sure your letterheads have that extra touch of class and your memo-pads the envy of all your co-workers? Now’s the time to share how you spread the lolita sprit amongst the more mundane.
We’re trying out an addition to themes with a coord challenge. If it’s popular we’ll continue it next month!

This month’s coord challenge is Incognito Lolita.
What coords can you make that wouldn’t raise the eyebrows of your boss/principal?

Hello! I did two review videos of shopping services that I've used to buy lolita. I hope that you'll find them helpful!

30th-Aug-2015 03:49 pm - Petticoat Fabric Question
Hi hi everybody!

So, recently I've been looking for a new petticoat. The poofiest, most cupcake-y one I can find so I can stop layering 3. I'm about 95% decided on MeLikesTea's Hybrid Poof Monster PT0510.

But I can't decide on what fabric to choose! I know tulle deflates the fastest, so I probably won't be purchasing that one (even though it's much cheaper, but that's beside the point).

I wanted to know what everyone's thoughts were on Organza and Voile. Almost no one has posted a review on voile petticoats, apparently, so I really am clueless with that.

Also, how are MeLikesTea's petticoats in general, if you have one? I emailed Tai and she seems so sweet and wonderful, so it'd be great if her products were wonderful too ^-^

Thanks everyone!!! :)
