Wow, there are a ton of dresses up for order this week. Some I want, some I want to poke fun at, and some I want but not really but also cats. But seriously, Clobba Online’s Facebook is amazing at letting me know what dresses are available. Soufflesong has had some of these listed as well.
First, let’s start with ones I want and am under a time limit for. Long Ears & Short Ears (they have a Storenvy, but also sold on Clobba) is re-releasing their Mushroom Forest print, and the JSK is cute and would fit me.
So cute. I really want to support LE&SE because they are an indie brand and I really like these patterns. But once more, I am faced with the whole “don’t buy the same print/cut in different colors, you dummy!” thing. I probably have about a day to make up my mind on this because everyone is saying this fabric print is limited. ヽ（´ー｀）┌ I’ll probably not order them, but I do want to share my love for them with the world. I suppose I am waiting for them to release something like Stardust Jewel again, which I fell in love with but missed out on. Or for a Lucky Pack. They have amazingly affordable Lucky Packs.
But man, if I was super wealthy, I’d get this same JSK in all the colors. Sadly, the OP wouldn’t fit, and the Salopette is a bit awkward and requires a nice blouse, which I am still lacking).
Next up is Neverland Butterfly Graveyard JSK and OP.
These are on Clobba AND Soufflesong for around the same price, and there is no deadline. NONE. So I might buy these after I get paid. Even if it breaks the “same print/different cut/different color” rule. I think these two dresses are different enough. Definitely getting one in purple, and the other in either dark blue or dark red. I am leaning towards blue.
When thinking about lolita fashion, since I am on a budget, I want to try and figure out the image I want to portray. Do I want to be a Sweet Lolita (more akin to the Mushroom Forest JSK above, and the dresses coming in June)? Do I want to be a Gothic Lolita (like these dresses)? What about Shiro/Kuro Lolita (akin to what F+F pieces I am most interested in, generally)? I can’t really afford to be all of the above, but then again, with careful planning, why not? It is something to think about when drooling over all these different dresses.
Next is kinda a fun one: Neverland Cat’s Courtyard.
I am not a huge fan of the massive screen-print patterns on some dresses. I don’t like the screen-printing on these, but otherwise I like the top part of these dresses, and the layered lace at the bottom. Also, Soufflesong has had these up for weeks now, but Clobba is just now putting them up? (•‿•) Okay.
Finally, I have to show off the name of this one.
Classical Puppet’s Maiden’s Breasts. What. It’s nice pattern with macarons and there are 3 different cuts (the high waist JSK shown here, a high waist OP, and a dolly cut which has no waist but looks crazy short on the model). Very cute, but WHY that name? (｡ﾉω＼｡)ﾟ
Actually, after some careful googling of “少女的酥胸”, you get pictures of macarons (and an alternative name of “马卡龙”, and that is macaron. Thanks google!) So I must assume that this is all kind of a disconnect between what it means in Chinese and what it means in English. This print is all about super cute macarons and sweets and ya’ll need to get your minds out of the gutter. (´・ω・`) I do too, I guess.
