I did a photoshoot recently with a local photographer at his home studio.
We wanted to try something a little different. We tried to give a more editorial 'high-fashion' type look to the photos. I know the extravagant, I would say 'avant-garde' style has been popular with coordinates lately, especially at high-profile events, but we wanted to give a more clean, simple image.
The JSK is Baby's Swan Lake print. (2005 I think?) Since the dress is very detailed - not extra specially in terms of Lolita, but this was the first time the photographer had properly seen this style - we decided to make the rest of the outfit quite neutral; white offbrand blouse and tights, a couple of bracelets, and some simple elegant earrings.
My hair I left lightly curled and down. Originally I had styled it so it fell one shoulder, but it didn't say like that for long. In hindsight I would have added a few small flower clips to my hair, just to finish it off, but the only accessories I had with me were rectangular headdresses, big bows and flower garlands, which I think would be too overbearing for this look.
I tried to keep my make-up light, but I think it was probably a little too light in these photos. Working under studio lights all day really wears it off!

What do you think? Do you prefer more simple cords or OTT ones? Any examples of Lolita mixed with western fashion?
Thank you for reading.
