AP IS RELEASING 4 SPECIAL SETS I WANT AND ALSO SKY BANQUET WHICH I ALSO WANT, ALL THIS WEEKEND/NEXT FEW DAYS. Why is AP trying to BREAK MY HEART INTO 5 MILLION PIECES.
Actually, I knew this would be released about now, but the trauma of all those special sets slipping away and now this release.
Colorways I like: ALL OF THEM. But if we have to rank them, then it goes lavender > pink (predicting it will be the last colorway to sell out) > mint (I bet mint will be popular) > wine. It’s so nice and springy and cute! Though I would probably buy the wine rather than mint, but the mint looks cute…just not on me. I will probably end up with the pink if it turns out to be a bloodbath.
I love everything about this, except I am wary of how the white lace on the body cuts right across the chest. Are boobs supposed to go above or below the white ruffle? Is that physiologically possible? It seems like every AP JSK I like falls in the realm of 97/98cm bust max and 80cm waist max, so I am quite sure that this JSK will be about the same.
I wish there was a floral headdress instead of a bonnet and a headbow. I don’t do bonnets, and I am starting to dislike headbows. I am surprised they did not use a feather decoration or motif on either headpiece, or a little crown that looks like the birdcages. Not that I would wear a mini crown, those are pretty passé, but if AP was going to go with a wacky headpiece, this would be their chance. When I eventually get this dress (someday…), I won’t bother with the headband at all. I like floral headbands better.
A detail I missed before…BIRDS. That is where the SKY part of the print comes from. We have clouds and bird cages and birds and roses and suffering on my part. And the wings on the sides of the little birdcage images.
Unless I get an email back tomorrow saying that I have a post doc, I am not buying this dress. I can only hope that people don’t like it so I can grab it on sale later this year. Or I may have to wait for it to come up second hand, but that is a whole barrel of monkies I don’t really want to deal with.
(･ε･｀ ) That’s not too vicious of me, is it? Meanwhile, Fairy Rose Princess STILL isn’t on sale…ivory is sold out in Japan (or rather, they would need to check the in-store stocks) and wine is sold out on AP USA, and I feel it slipping away. I though they would be part of the winter sale, but I guess thinking back, Rose Museum was a 2016 fall/winter release and I didn’t buy it until the beginning of February, so maybe there is yet another Winter Sale to go. If I had to pick, I think I like Sky Banquet better than Fairy Rose Princess, but I’ve seen pictures of Fairy Rose worn and I really want it. Partially so I can long distance twin with lolitas who are more stylish than me. (･ε･｀ ) ;;;;
Anyway, AP Japan is getting this on 1/27/2018, so US Central time, that is the night of 1/26. TOMORROW. Prepare yourselves! AP USA will probably get this print in the next 2-3 weeks.
