Angelic Pretty Authenticity Help

Hi everyone! 

I recently joined the EGL community and was wondering if anyone could give me some pointers as to how to identify if my dress is an authentic AP dress?

The dress in question is Angelic Pretty's Chess Emblem OP in red and white. It has been my dream dress for five years now and I was able to purchase it from pre-owned. The seller had a large collection of pre-owned lolita dresses and accessories for sale so I figured it would be trustworthy. 

I got it a few days ago and I've been really thrilled about it, but since I've never owned an AP piece before, I couldn't tell if it's authentic and I really want to make sure. I looked online for some resources to help me, but they all say things like "unclear print" and "sloppy stitching" or "bad lace" — all of which I think I need a reference for.

If anyone can give some more pointers, that would be great! I can also post some photos or describe the dress in greater detail if anyone is willing to provide expertise. Thanks!

Wardrobe Post 2021

After many years i decided to do a wardrobe post again. 😂
I being into Lolita and started to build up a wardrobe since 2004. So it will be my 17th anniversary this year. Over the years my style and taste changed a lot (but somehow i always stayed on the dark side of fashion)

My last post was in 2017

It's interesting how much my wardrobe changed.

Jelly's 2021 Wardrobe Post

My first closet post despite wearing lolita since 2014 ✌️ Better late than never I suppose. I would consider myself mainly sweet in style however I noticed an ever increasing amount of darker items in my wardrobe. In more recent years I really broadened my taste and slowly experimented with adding new styles and colors to my closet. I have to admit I ran out of time due to work, to fully photograph my entire wardrobe. I was able to take photos of most of my main pieces and a few of my favorite bags. Maybe next year I will be able to showcase the fuller extent of my closet
