When Angelic Pretty announced that the San Francisco store was having a winter sale, I could scarcely contain my excitement! This time of the year is the best for me to order Lolita items considering it is almost tax return season. Although the items I chose were not on sale, I am so happy that I purchased what I did!
I came across four items I just had to have. I had to resist the urge to purchase additional items, such as the Fantastic Pegasus Chandelier Necklace and Fantastic Pegasus Chandelier Ring set for this particular order.
✓ Creamy Doughnuts Ring (Brown)
✓ Creamy Doughnuts Bracelet (Brown)
✓ Lady Heart Quilting Bag (Pink)
✓ Dolly Pearl Headbow (Pink)
My Angelic Pretty order was due to arrive on February 13th. This did not happen because we had over a foot of snow in New England. The storm delayed all mail delivery for the day. Despite the unforeseeable delay, I was over the moon with happiness when my package was to be delivered on Valentine's Day, February 14th! Regretfully, my carrier did not deliver my package on Valentine's Day either. Evidently, he was not aware that our walkway had not been carefully shoveled. Thankfully, my order was hand delivered on February 15th!
After only eleven short days I finally had my latest order in my possession! I cannot get over how deliciously tempting this box is! This is the second time that I have purchased directly from the Angelic Pretty USA store, and it was the first time that I have received in anything besides a standard USPS flat rate box. Thankfully the large package was sent with USPS Priority for a speedy delivery despite its overwhelming size.
Inside of the box I found my invoice and my specifically requested brand shopping bag! The note was very sweet and had the most adorable bunny drawing I have ever seen! The Angelic Pretty brand name shopping bag had been carefully rolled to ensure a safe travel. I know just what I am going to do with the bag too!
My items had been carefully preserved in a frosted plastic bag. I was extremely grateful. We have had such terrible winter weather that I would have been mortified to see that my items had succumbed to the elements.
My Lady Heart Quilting Bag in pink was the first item I came across once I opened the protective sleeve. This bag is simply stunning. I have always wanted a heart bag as part of my Lolita wardrobe. The quilted texture, heart shape, pretty bow and glass pearl beads made this bag an automatic cart addition for my order. The handles are secured by heart shaped stitches and the back of the purse features a generous back pocket.
Since my bag was purchased directly from Angelic Pretty, it still had all of the price tags. I was very impressed that the bag had been shipped with tissue paper to maintain it's lovely heart shape and that the two handles of the purse were secured with a white joined cloth to ensure the handles remained in place. I was curious to see if a Lolita brand bag would be of a higher quality than any indie bag that I have in my collection.
At once glance it was evident to see that this Angelic Pretty bag, much like any of my other Angelic Pretty pieces, was of a fantastic quality. The stitching was even, precise and well stitched. The synthetic leather is extremely soft to the touch. I have never experienced a bag material of such quality before! The gold bow charm and branded heart zippers are an added touch of elegance and tasteful Angelic Pretty branding.
In the pictures above, you can see an up close and personal shot of the Lady Heart Quilting Bag. In this photo, you can clearly see the even stitching and the incredible stuffed quilted pattern that encompasses the entire bag. All of the glass pearl beads are securely strung and the purse features two golden brand charms.
The lining fabric on the inside of the bag and back pocket is extremely charming! Angelic Pretty's name is written inside of the love-struck heart logo. The inner fabric also features black polka dots for a sweet look!
There was a generous amount of tissue paper inside of the purse in order to help the purse to maintain it's shaping during shipment. This bag is surprisingly roomy! I easily can fit my long wallet, my makeup bag, my phone and other Lolita meet up accessories and essentials inside. Since the purse was so roomy, it was easy to see why the staff had put my other ordered items were tucked in safely within the inside of the bag

This bag is absolutely flawless. Not only is it made high-quality materials and extremely roomy for any of my Lolita needs, the purse has been expertly stitched and constructed down to each detail. Every aspect of the bag's design is charming and simply too sweet for words! I could not be more impressed with this purse.
The Dolly Pearl Headbow was the reason that I made my initial online purchase. I was completely captivated by the bow's constructed satin, tulle lace, and glass pearl beads. The soft pink satin and pink glass pearls of this headbow compliment the Lady Heart Quilting Bag that I had included in the purchase perfectly!
The satin that the ribbon is constructed of is incredibly soft! I was happy to see that the material was additionally sturdy, so it should maintain it shapes even after being worn. The tulle lace is not soft to the touch, but the details are incredibly charming! The lace features polka dots as well as half circles of lace.
The bow has a very secure and stiff middle to keep the piece secure and centered. The edges of the bow that are attached to the headband are very sturdy! All of the stitching for the headbow is event and precise. Not a stitch is out of place! The pink pearl accent beads have been attached in such a great manner that I do not fear that they will come lose at all. Once again, I am completely captivated by the quality of an AP piece!

cannot get over how precious this head bow is! I am extremely impressed with the materials Angelic Pretty chose for this piece as well as the construction. This headbow is a fantastic addition to my Lolita wardrobe!
And now for my Cream Doughnut pieces! When I saw that there were two accessory pieces from my dream dress release in stock, I just had to have to add them to my order. Truthfully, I was torn between the brown bracelet and the pink, but in the end, I chose the brown and I am so glad that I did. The brown doughnut bracelet is a nice complimentary addition to my Melty Cream Doughnut Jumperskirt in the pink color way.
The doughnut charm is acrylic and very sturdy. I love the fact that the frosting and sprinkles are on a completely different layer than the base. This allows the glitz of the rhinestones and the sweet painted hearts to stand out. The rhinestones are incredibly brilliant and catch the light beautifully. The gold charm adds to that as well. The beads are a standard plastic, but I do love the fact the beads have the effect of being frosted.

This bracelet is extremely charming! I am very impressed with the aspects that create this overall piece from the sweet design to the stunning materials the bracelet is constructed of. That being said, I do not feel that this piece was worth the asking price of $32.00. This is mainly based on the inexpensive multicolored beads.
My Cream Doughnut Ring is just as lovely as the bracelet. Since AP had this piece in brown as well, I quickly added it to my order. The ring is just as lovely as the bracelet! The rhinestones are incredibly brilliant and well affixed to the acrylic base and the acrylic layers really help create an adorable and tasty looking accessory! I was additionally impressed with the adjustable ring and it truly can accommodate a wide range of sizes. Also, the ring glue pad is extremely sturdy. There is no chance that this ring will come apart any time soon!

Just like the bracelet, the Cream Doughnut Ring is extremely charming! I am very impressed with the aspects that create this overall piece, from the sweet design to the sparkling additions. Unlike the bracelet, however, the ring is constructed of high-quality materials and is well worth the price!

The shipping for this order was domestic and arrived swiftly! This was especially surprising since New England has been ravaged by snow storms and we have had more than a foot of snow. My order was expertly packaged and I even received a highly desired Angelic Pretty bag as I requested!

The Angelic Pretty staff are always fantastic in their communication. The staff was sure to include an Angelic Pretty shopping bag with my order as requested! I was very happy to see that my order invoice contained a personalized message from the staff. Their message was prompted from my order comments, and the message included an adorable hand drawn picture of a rabbit. So cute!
I am so pleased with my recent Angelic Pretty products. I hope that you found this post informative!
