I am new to lolita and this is my 4th lolita purchase. I am no expert but I thought I would share details of my purchase from fanplusfriend.
I made my order on March 12th and received it yesterday April 12th. So it took about a month to get here, but from that I hear that is per usual for F+F.
Here is what I ordered:
In Sky Blue + White lace
On with my pics!
Came nicely packed. No damage or anything to report here.
After I ordered this I read a review saying it was not fluffy at all. I have to say that I agree. If you have a light weight dress and just need a little poof, this would be okay, otherwise I don't recommend it.
The lining of the petticoat. You can see how thin it is here.
Bloomers! They are long and very comfortable. I'm a bigger girl, these are a size 16 US if anyone is wondering.
Close up of the lace on the bloomers. There is a yellow stain on the bottom of the first ruffle. I honestly didn't notice it until I was editing this picture. It took me a while to find it when I realized it was there. I'm not too worried about it.
Packaging of the dress. So exciting xD I love opening new dresses.
The dress! Long dress is looong. I did note the length of this dress before I ordered it. I was being a n00b and thought it would come just below my knees. Waayy off. But I still like it.
Dress with the flash on my camera on. It makes the blue look more vibrant than it really is.
Close up of the lace. I really don't know much about lace. I know there is a post on the memories in this community that has some explanation that I should read. So, for my uneducated knowledge of lace I think it's pretty nice. Although, the bordering lace above the thicker lace isn't exactly straight in some areas. I don't think it's noticeable from afar.
Here is the bodice part. The lace on the left doesn't seem to be sewn on as flat as the lace on the right. Probably also unnoticeable.
One of the straps.
Here is me in the dress. My boyfriend took this picture, he really doesn't have a good perspective when it comes to photography. Also, I've been a little under the weather lately so I don't have any make-up on or my hair done in any way. Also, I doubled up on petticoats here.
My self-taken pic in my room. Excuse the mess ^^;
Also, for those who are interested, this is their standard size for 16US.
Overall I am pretty satisfied with my purchase.
Shipping Time: 4/5
Thanks for looking!
