Continuing on from the Cloudehill post, I’d like to present a bunch of self-indulgent photos, eek.
For my coordinate I went for a soft blue-green with chocolate brown and cream. I know the bonnet is on the huge side – I love it but am not quite set on the shape! The theme is about a girl having received a love letter from a suitor. 🙂 I wasn’t completely happy with the look but the idea was a) to attempt over-the-top classic, b) to use the bonnet at least once, c) to use our new camera (thanks Julija!) and d) to have my real hair out for the first time in lolita. 🙂
I wore the dress again to a Chocolate High Tea event last weekend and was happier with the way I coordinated the outfit a second time in a different look – the waist is a touch high on me (would be more flattering if it tapered down a bit) and the underskirt feels a bit cheap and rustles when it rubs against the skirt, but otherwise it’s very beautiful and I have a love affair with those trumpet sleeves and the way they come up like a jacket.
