My first Lolita dress, my beloved Enchanted Forest JSK, just got a redesigned and it is the most perfect thing ever. It is also $222 on sale (a good crapload more than what I paid last fall) and I cannot buy it. So instead, I will cry over it on here.
Same print as before, but sleeves are different, underskirt is different, and there is a blouse/cloak. It also comes with a headdress, but I am too busy sobbing to notice.
The dark version, which is what I would buy IF I was buying this dress, since I missed it last time. Not sure how I feel about the new straps, but I LOVE how you can pin the front up like this. The old straps were a pain, but these are probably easier to deal with.
The blouse allows for flowy sleeves, as shown, or you can gather it at the wrist so it looks more blouse-like.
*sobbing* AND YOU CAN MAKE IT INTO A HOOD. This is the perfect fairytale themed dress! If it priced similarly to the original dress last year (so $150 when not on sale, ~$130 on sale), I would have bought it already and told my budgeting to go to hell. But no, this version is so much more expensive.
Finally, the KILLER is this petticoat. I think this is a light grey version of the new Romantico Balletto petticoat. The dark dress comes with a dark grey one. If I wanted to buy the petticoat alone, I only get a choice of black or white. Also, this is $80. It is actually a tulle skirt (with the flowery decorations omg) and then a steel hoop sort of thing on the inside. ヽ(￣д￣;)ノ I think I want this most of all!
If this petticoat is still around at Christmas, maybe I’ll buy it then.
