The order from My-Lolita-Dress is here! You won't believe the goodies I bought!
Order And Arrival Date:
On January 24, 2015 I placed an order to My-Lolita-Dress for various lolita items.
The order arrived on June 15, 2015.
My haul ordered included:
Precious Clove - Letters to My Dear Lolita Jumperskirt Short Version ( Pink )
Precious Clove - Letters to My Dear Lolita Headbow ( Pink )
Classical Puppets - A-Line Petticoat I ( White )
Rococo Style Lace Lolita Shirt Silk And Linen (White)
[ Replica ] Angelic Pretty Melty Cream Doughnut Jumperskirt ( Pink )
I decided to try out My-Lolita-Dress based on various positive reviews from lolitas in the online community, especially Kota-Bear. I have had negative experiences with ClobbaOnline and I wanted to try another shop that carried Taobao and Indie brands that catered to customization.
My order came in a secured plastic ems package. All of the items were protected very well.
As you can see the order of items were the long-sleeved blouse, Precious Clove jumperskirt, Melty Cream Doughnut jumperskirt, and lastly my a-line petticoat. Everything arrived safe and sound!
Every item was held together with a band to ensure nothing was lost.
Letters To My Dear Lolita Jumperskirt
The Letters to My Dear Lolita jumperksirt and headbow set was packaged together, which was very nice! I didn't have to search for the headbow separately from the jumperskirt. I fell in love with this print back when it was announced in December. Here are some stock images of the release:
It is always a challenge for me as a to find prints that I adore that I can get in a custom size. I find this is especially so with Sweet Lolita boarder prints. This dress incorporated many things I love, such as roses and bottles. I was very difficult for me to choose between the pink or the purple colorway! I chose pink because it is my signature color and because it matches my current wardrobe
This dress really is very pretty in person! The print design is delicate but bold enough against the pale pink material. The dress is very soft and lined, thank goodness! Also, since this dress was custom sized, I am happy to report it fits extremely well and is very flattering. It is a very classic design.
The the lace on the dress is beautiful and of a high quality. There are soft rose details in the collar, and the peach pink bow is removable with a simply safety pin. The scalloped bottom is charming!
The print has many lovely details. I love all the different shaped glass bottles! The dress also features roses, pearls, bows, starts, letters and feather pens. The design is absolutely stunning! I love the print because, not only is it beautiful, but I can easily create multiple coordinates with this one jumperskirt.
There is an error on the front and back of the print on one of the stain glass windows. Unfortunately, the defect also appears on the bodice of the dress. The marks are small and resembles blue pen marks. I can only assume this occurred during the printing. The dots are not noticeable when worn.
All in all, I would recommend this dress, I absolutely love this elegant and charming print. I love that this dress could be custom sized. The dress is of a nice quality and affordable is another plus. Aside from the print defect from the print, the artwork is vibrant and extremely well designed.
And now for the Letters To My Dear Lolita headbow!
Letters To My Dear Lolita Headbow
The headbow was packaged with the matching jumperskirt, which made it extremely easy to find. Additionally, the bow was wrapped individually in its own plastic wrap. It was great presentation.
This headbow is extremely beautiful, especially when it is worn. The lace is very soft and has the same detail lace of the dress. The material is the same as the jumperskirt, so it has the same silken feel. The bow also has an adorable golden rose charm, which is just an additional charming touch.
It is a bit difficult to see, but the right side of the headbow is a tad shorter than the left. It is not easy to tell when worn, and it looks especially darling when positioned as a side headbow.
This headbow scores an easy 7/10! I am very happy I added it to my order.
Classical Puppet's A-Line Petticoat
This is my first official petticoat. I purchased an a-line petticoat since my Bodyline jumpserkirt and the Precious Clove Letters to My Dear Lolita jumperskirt both have that particular silhouette.
The petticoat was purchased from Classical Puppets and is tailor made to my measurements. This petticoat is flawless. The material is extremely soft and fluffy. My precious petticoat was very scratchy and did not maintain it's shape. This petticoat however, is a much welcomed change.
The petticoat is lined with a slip and the edges are hemmed professionally. The elastic at the waist is very comfortable and can go well beyond the stated measurements. It is extremely cozy to wear.
I am over-the-moon in love with this petticoat. I plan to order a bell-shaped petticoat from the Classical Puppets brand in the future. I'd love to have additional shapes and multiple colors!
Sweet Ruffles Silk and Linen Blouse
There was a slight mix up with my blouse. Unfortunately, the tailor service made a mistake when they constructed my order. To receive my order on time for an event Linda from my-lolita-dress offered to send a blouse that she had in stock that fit my measurements. This blouse was the Sweet Ruffles Silk and Linen Blouse and I actually think it is prettier than the original one I had ordered.
For some additional misfortune this blouse was the wrong measurements. This item was a good 30 cm short of the required size. I was given a partial refund for the mix up. I can only hope that I can resell the blouse to someone who can enjoy it and re-order another one in the accurate size.
I absolutely love the high ruffled collar on this blouse. The collar, and the overall design, is very elegant. It would pair with the Precious Clove dress perfectly. I like the ribbon details on the lace.
The blouse has corset lacing to assist in fitting. The normal measurements for this blouse are a bust of 107 cm and 107 cm for the waist. With the used of the corset lacing the waist can be taken in easily!
It is a bit difficult to give a number to a piece I cannot wear, but based on the construction and quality of the blouse I would give it a score of 7/10. I plan to purchase another in the correct size soon!
(Replica) Melty Cream Doughnut Jumperskirt
This dress was added to my order as a graduation present. It is nice to be able to see how an Angelic Pretty dress would fit to my measurements. This also give me an idea of how nice the official Angelic Pretty jumperskirt will be. I am very happy to see that the shirred version can accommodate my size easily and the shape is flattering. I will be sure to purchase official pieces from AP in the future!
Overall the dress has been made immaculately. There was not one thread out of place. The dress is lined and even comes with a built in petticoat. The chiffon in which the print is placed is beyond soft. The JSK has detachable waist ties and is an overall charming piece.
I adore doughnuts. When Angelic Pretty released this print, I couldn't contain myself. There is nothing cuter, or sweeter, than a frosted doughnut! The print on the replica is very easy to see on the soft material and features doughnuts and other confections, spoons, ribbons and other adorable details.
The replica also features the small fork and spoon details on the center ribbon.
The detailing of the lace features the signature piece of the print: doughnuts! Overall, I am blown away by the level of detail and quality of this inexpensive replica.
This dress easily receives a 10/10!
That is it for this order, but there will be more to come soon!
Stay Frilly Everyone!
