Hello, happy Monday! This week, I will be talking about recent themed purchases!
I am a lolita who deeply loves the circus/carousel/carnival theme and as such, most of my prints & accessories follow those themes! This particular haul post reflects a bundle of items I’ve gotten that I believe properly reflect these themes.
I got one of the last OTKs & dresses on my Wishlist, which was AATP’s Starlit Sky Tent and the Secret Circus Trope OP and Circus Tent Stripe OTKs!
I bought them both from the same seller who also included the matching bonnet!
If anyone who reads this decides to get this OP, please know that the lolibrary measurements are not entirely accurate! If you’re tall with wide shoulders like I am the shirring won’t help in the way it’s supposed to! I actually wanted to get new bras so I got some minimizer bras and they helped me fit comfortably into the dress!
I also got a new blouse and vest. The blouse I got is from Excentrique and it’s called the Lace Collar Crown Blouse.
I really like that the collar resembles a ruff collar! It has a beautiful lace pattern and I really think it will pull a lot of my circus coordinates together.
The striped vest is from PEACE NOW. I’m hoping to incorporate it in more gothic circus coordinates. My biggest concern is that it’s like black & silver stripes rather than black & white but in pictures it doesn’t really seem noticeable! I’m hoping it’ll help balance out between skirts & blouses I have. Whenever I wear blouses & skirts, I always feel like my torso is empty so I believe this’ll help pull it together.
But the two winners of my recent stuff has to be the AATP Enamel Circus Shoes & this cool Jane Marple jacket I bought from Wunderwelt!
The shoes are SO GOOD I can’t stop wearing them ahhh; I’ve tried them on with so many things I own. The bows in the back are detachable! Funny story, the person I bought the shoes from was someone I had purchased a dress from in the past. At the time, the dress was missing an item (I knew it was missing before buying it) but the seller found it since then and sent it with the shoes! ;w; Another funny story, I actually saw these shoes posted in the Amino by someone and felt so bummed that I wouldn’t be able to get them. Days later they show up in my size! XD
As for the JM jacket, it has a jester feel! The collar is wire so the sections are adjustable! I was really hoping it would match my IW Midnight Merry Go Round print and in real life they’re a perfect blue match ????One of the buttons came off as part of the listed damaged but that’s such an easy fix, it wasn’t a deterrent to getting it! Soooooooo excited to wear it!
Anyway thanks for reading all of that! I’m looking forward to planning out some new coordinates! (•̀ᴗ•́)و ̑̑
