Camden Town EGL Review

The Angel Pretty store in Camden Town was quite disappointing. Optimistic, I entered the store expecting at least to find some nice accessories. To my horror, the first dress I found was made of poorly stitched and shiny material. It was dreadful! I whipped out my camera to document it for you, but the woman at the counter shouted at me. :/ It was really awkward.

The store was no more than a hole in the wall, so the accessories were all piled in together. It was a perfect of group appeal, when items look good all together, but crappy when they're alone. Some of the jewelry was okay... Most wasn't. I couldn't find a thing worth buying. The brands, or the pieces that had tags at least, were generic at best, and the atmosphere was that of a cheap costume shop.

Finally, I found a pink jumper skirt and a white blouse to go under it. I tried it on, but it fit everywhere but my chest. English clothes seem to be made for less busty girls than I. I don't think I'll ever think of myself as flat chested again. I modeled it in front of the mirror, thinking of perhaps using one of my own blouses, when, to my horror, I noticed the trim. You probably guessed it; Synthetic lace. Mortified, I dashed back into the shoddy changing stall and removed the offending garment.

All things considered, I wouldn't give Angel Pretty more than a one out of five. The quality of the lolita pieces was costume at best, extremely overpriced, and not very pretty to begin with. There were some less dreadul rock-a-billy and gothic pieces, however, such as cameo necklaces and rings. To conclude my review, I would say that it is a good place to shop for some jewelry or other things, but that it fails miserably at being lolita.
