I am ecstatic to share that my recent purchases from Souffle Song have arrived! Nothing is better than a new dress. This is my first purchase from the Souffle Song, but this order will not be my last!
Souffle Song is an indie Lolita brand located in China. With their original jaw dropping Gothic and Sweet Lolita pieces, there is bound to be something you would like to have present in your closet.
I stumbled across Souffle Song through the Taobao resale shops, such as My-Lolita-Dress and Lolita Wardrobe. While on the main Lolita group in Amino, I was able to connect with another plus-size Lolita who had a beautiful Jumperskirt by this brand. Since I was able to establish it was a brand that produced good quality pieces, I ransacked the internet for Souffle Song's website. Once I found it. I made my dress wish list. I soon contacted Souffle Song on July 12th to inquire about their custom measurement services. I was horrified to learn that they discontinued their custom sizing! Thankfully this limitation was short lived on my end, due to the fact that the customer service team informative me that this service had been reinstated only two short days later, whew! I was extremely relieved.
The dresses that rank highest on my Souffle Song wishlist included:
Crystal Palace Jumperskirt
Strawberry Rabbit Long Sleeve One-piece
Sweet Cherry Deer Heart Belt Jumperskirt
It was so hard to decide which dress to purchase first! I finally settled on the Sweet Cherry Deer Heart Belt Jumperskirt. As I went to put in my custom measurements for the most $15.00 fee, I realized that the L size dress should fit just fine! Since the dress came in four colorways, being Pink, Beige, Mint, and Dark Blue, I had quite an important decision to make in regards to selecting a color.
As I accessed my wardrobe, and I decided that the beige colorway would be the best addition.
I just had to add this dress to my wardrobe. I absolutely love cherries, ribbons, and hearts in my prints but the fact that there are little fawns, blue birds, rabbits, and squirrels were far too adorable to pass up! To me, the print appears to be a mature style and a great fit for a Classic Sweet Lolita.
To place a product order on Souffle Song was extremely easy! You are able to simply select color and size of the items you would like to purchase. It is very easy to select a custom size option for the modest fee of $15.00 per piece. After you add the items you desire to your cart, simply checkout.
I selected the Sweet Cherry Deer Heart Belt Jumperskirt in beige as well as the matching head bow. Since the L size measurements were so accommodating, I was able to purchase the in stock item.
Since I was not in a particular rush to obtain my items, I selected the slowest shipping speed which was the EMS-shipping packet. At $12.00 for international shipping, how could I possibly resist!
I purchased my items on July 17, 2017. Since the item was in stock, my items were sent out extremely quickly. The order was sent out on July 21, 2017. Souffle Song sent an email to inform me of the item that I would be able to use to track my parcel as it made its way from China to my doorstep.
My order arrived on August 4, 2017, in a modest sized ems envelope. I could not believe this order came in two weeks, especially since the shipping price was modest. Let's review the items, shall we?
The head bow was individually wrapped, which is always nice! The construction of the head bow is very well done. The main printed material is soft, yet sturdy. I was happy to see that the print on the bow was clear to see and free of any imperfections. the structure of the bow is very well done, and the lace is soft and well detailed. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the material was embossed!
I just love the small details of the bow! The small print features the overall components of the dress, which include cherries and lovely mint leaves, various lace designs, ribbons, daisies, and hearts. I love that the lace features daisies! My only complaint this that the lace is white and not ivory.

The head bow is lovely! The material that has been used is sturdy and features lovely details, such as a clear and distinct print and embossed fabric. It loses two points in my opinion because the head bow base is thinner than I would like. Also, the lace is white rather than ivory. Since the overall color of the dress and the head bow are beige, the fact that the lace is white is a slight distraction.
And now for the pièce de résistance! The dress was wrapped in its own plastic bag, which displayed the brand name and the size. Even from within the bag it was easy to see this was a great choice!
The details of this dress are nothing short of incredible! Not only are all of the materials of a fantastic quality, but there is a tremendous range of specialized sewing techniques that exist in the piece.
The dress features many various styles of lace. All of them are a fantastic quality! The dress features an intricate lace lattice work along the ribbons on the straps, as well as along the ribbon across the neckline. A smaller ivory lace is used at the top of the bodice and along the underarms. A larger and different lace along the outside of the straps. Lastly, and the most charming lace, is the heart shaped lace along the bodice, at the pleats of the bodice, and the lace around the waist bow.
The gathered material at the top of the dress is incredibly lovely and makes it flattering when worn.
I am beyond impressed with the small details of the print! Small iterations of cherries litter the print. There are heart cherries, natural cherries and small cherries surrounded among mint green leaves. The print above the border print also showcases daisies! The material is completely embossed, just like the head bow! The texture of the emboss is completely enchanting and features an intricate leaf design. The background of the dress also features pink polka dots, which only adds to its charm! The overall line art of most of the items features a flattering lavender color, rather black or brown.
The border print of the dress features a charming array of birds, fawns, rabbits, and squirrels. All of the animals feature charming spring accessories, such as large head bows, hair ribbons, daisies, and wildflowers. The animals are illustrated in such a sweet manner and feature various poses. I especially love their lashes! All of the animals interact with one another and the delicious cherries.
I mean, just look how cute the rabbit and squirrel are! I didn't even know that there were squirrels in the print, which honestly was an added bonus! I love how there are numerous patterns within the ribbons in the print as well. The various coordinate accessory possibilities are quite extensive!
The dress features partial, and stretchy, shirring! This not only makes the dress more comfortable to wear but, since it is partial shirring the dress looks more flattering when worn. The dress is true to its measurements. The dress also features lining and a slip, all of which has been expertly stitched.
The waist ties are especially adorable! I love the fact that they are heart-shapes with ribbons. The waist ties are attached to the dress with adorable and secure pearl heart-shaped buttons. Also, the dress straps are also secured with heart-shaped pearl buttons, just a smaller size. They are too cute!

This dress is beyond stunning and deserves a higher rating! The dress is incredibly well constructed, it is made with high-quality materials, and features various incredible sewing techniques. I cannot get over how unbelievably beautiful this dress is. I am completely won over by the overall design of the piece. From the tiny lace details to the embossed fabric to the high-quality dress print, this dress is my absolute favorite dress piece in my current wardrobe collection. I am extremely impressed!

The communication with Souffle Song was extremely easy and fast. I contacted them twice, once about the custom sizing, and the second time about which pieces I could customize. They were very prompt and, when they once again offered custom sizing, they contacted me to assure me that the service was once again available. I am very confident to communicate with them in the future!

I shipped both items with the least expensive shipping option Souffle Song offered, which was the e-packet for the small fee of $12. I do not know how long the customization pieces take, but the in stock items were sent very quickly. I am completely impressed that my order arrived in two weeks!
9 / 10
Both of the items are expertly made and are made with high quality materials! While the head bow could improve with some adjustments, the dress is beyond my expectations. I am very impressed!
