Your Highness: Constellation Gradient

This gorgeous dress called Constellation Gradient is made by taobao brand Your Highness! I love the layered skirt, the style of the dress goes perfectly with the print. This dress would look cute both with a blouse or just as a super cute dress without.
It's too bad that from what I can see this dress had no shirring, which would improve comfort a lot and would not throw off the design since the back is quite simple. Though considering the price tag is only about 50 usd I think its okay, but don't forget to check the measurements. There are several sizes which will help a bit with that too!

It comes in three dark colorways too which look really nice and I think a lot of people would like them! But of course the cute pastel one is the only one for me.
It's an adorable and affordable dress and I definitely recommend checking out Your Highness on taobao!

Angelic Pretty: Snow Glass Dome

So its winter and that means winter themed prints! This winter season Angelic Pretty released Snow Glass Dome, my first thought is 'I wish this was a boarder print'! Could they not maybe scale up their prints a bit? I feel like a lot of prints have been looking cute on the close up but when its small you can't see any of the cute details.

The only colorway I like is the light blue one, the others are just make the print even more meeeeeeh. The grey version looks like it's just some small darker bows on it. I get that they have been going for grey colorways lately but can we have some contrast? The lavender isn't horrible, but I feel like something about the shade is kinda off. This could be just the photos, it might look okay irl.

The OP looks cute with the white collar, since it looks like snow. But otherwise I don't like coordinating with white usually. The layering of the jsk is a bit cute, but could use more frills. This just feels like a discount Sugar Dream Dome.

Thanks for reading! I feel like I sound more grumpy than usual but I'm sure its fine. I should try to have some more fun with writing these. Leave a comment so I know you read my posts and didn't just look at the pretty picture, either is fine, just curious.

Angelic Pretty: 14 NEW upcoming releases ★[Spring/Summer 2019]★

Angelic Pretty finally released photos from their 2019 Spring/Summer Collection fashion show! I've been excited to see it and there are definitely some interesting ones. Lots of really sweet prints, but it's pretty common for spring collections to be more colorful and sweet than fall collection.

Fruity Lemon

Let's start with Fruity Lemon, a really refreshing print, beside the lemons are also little yellow baby chicks. The mint colorway looks really adorable, I'm very curious to see what other colorways they will make this dress in! The poofy sleeves on the OP are so sweet, I like this cut but I know a lot of people dislike their cuts that are empire waist or have no waist. This is pretty different from previous Angelic Pretty prints but it does remind me a lot of Lemon Garden from Cheval de Bois, though Fruity Lemon has a much sweeter print and finish.


 Un Birthday

The colors in the Un Birthday print look really pretty, the pink, blue and mint look so sweet and delicate. Seems like Angelic Pretty will continue releasing their grey colorways, which looks nice with the print but I can't wait to see how this looks with more colorful base colors. Looks like this dress has a more heavy weaved fabric like many other of their prints in this kind of style. I like it, its like a less sweet version of Wrapping Heart.

 Fleur Cat

Cats are always cute but my favorite thing about Fleur Cat is the color contrasting ribbons in the print. The yellow one would be so cute for a 3 color coordinate! Other than that this dress is pretty plain, the cuts are plain and could use some more trims. But that can change before the release.

Fancy Candy

I'm all here for the theme of the Fancy Candy print; crepes, popcorn, soda, chocolate, and other candy! The solid color background is a bit plain but I think it can work with the aesthetic of this dress. I also saw that this print will also be available in a black colorway. I've made necklaces with similar motifs that might would look cute with it. A boarder print with similar motifs and aesthetic might of been cool!

Fleur Egg

Need an easter themed dress? Then Fleur Egg is here for you with painted eggs and colorful tulips. I'm not sure what I think of the pale lavender with this print, it just looks washed out here but that might be the photo. Not sure what the circles with bunnies in the center are, is that the top of a cake? It makes me think of Captain Americas shield, sorry not sorry.

 Magical Horoscope

I do like that the cut for Magical Horoscope has some more frills and details even though the print, especially in this color, is not really my style. Its hard to make out details and this is the only photos of it that I've seen so far. Nice frills, more info needed.

 Be My Valentine

The Be My Valentine print is so precious and adorable, I'm all here for any kind of scallop designs. Both sewn scallops and in prints. It really adds to the overall balance of the print. it's a nice transition to the boarder part and the hearts stand out with the white background. I've seen that is will be released in a pink colorway also, pink and red both feel suitable for a valentines print. The pink version is mostly pink has red details where the red one has pink details, so I'm curious to see whichever other colorways will have pink or red details! I like the red colorway more than the pink since it has more contrast in the print. This feels like a really fresh new print from Angelic Pretty, who many think have been making new versions of the same dresses a lot lately.

 Jewelry Aquarium

This print features a fancy collection of marine themed jewelry, can we just get the collection of jewelry pictured? They would actually make for really cute pieces, I hope Angelic Pretty will release jewelry like these together with Jewelry Aquarium! I also saw a pink version that I like a whole lot more than these two, though that's mostly a taste thing. Since I don't like dark colors like the blue one and I avoid white. The fabric looks like its chiffon, bottom trim is way too plain.

 Les Jardin de Anges

We always need at least one cloud print right? Les Jardin de Anges (Garden of Angels if I'm not mistaken, Angelic Pretty seem to be a french name kick) has clouds along with cherub angels and roses. I always like the baby blue colorways for cloud prints since it looks like a blue sky. Will also come in lavender. Looks like the fabric is chiffon which this type of cut frequently has. I really like it, but for those who don't like the free waist cuts this dress will also have a cut with the more typical Angelic Pretty waistline.

 Strawberry Doll

What is any Angelic Pretty collection without a berry print? (seriously they have A LOT) Strawberry Doll doesn't feel like anything new but its still cute. Plus for the pink lace on the pink colorway, I think they have white trims on everything way too often.

 Fleur Romance Dress

I think Fleur Romance would of looked better with a less pale pink base color. Pink and blue is such a cute color combo but its almost more white than pink. The bright blue ribbons make the other blue details look even more washed out. Something about the spacing of the lace layering looks a bit off too.

 Airly Julian

Airly Julian just looks so much better than the Fleur Romance Dress, the layering of the lace looks so luxurious (though the price will probably reflect this). The tone of pink used for details looks just right with the white base. I'm not sure what that small apron looking part is, but other than that this dress looks really gorgeous.

 Shanghai Doll Dress

These are the colors I wanted to see on the Fleur Romance Dress, really cute color combo. Though other than that I'm not quite sure about this dress. It looks like its trying to combine the Chinese style collar with an attached peignoir. Would like to see how this moves and how much the sheer part is attached, if it floats free over or if its stitched down. 

Rose Bouquet Angel Dress

The best thing you can do with one color dresses is use textures and this dress had a lot of different textures layered over each other. The cotton candy pink looks lovely, feels right for a princess style dress like this one. I would love to see the fabrics up close looks like the shiny fabric has a embroidered rose pattern.

That sure was a lot of dresses to get thru! Which one is your favorite? Excited to see more detailed photos and other colorways of all of these. Check back here for more updates on Angelic Pretty releases. Hope you liked my graphics since they took some time to put together.~

Angelic Pretty: ★ Toy Dream Luckypack ★

Angelic Pretty, luckypack, 2019, Toy Dream, Mintyfrills, Sweet Lolita
Its almost new years and that means luckypacks are coming! This years luckypack print dress from Angelic Pretty is just so adorable! I think it might be one of the cutest lucky pack dresses they have done. It's a pretty simple cut as the luckypack dresses usually are, they make them more simple so they can sell them for the cheaper price.

Angelic Pretty, luckypack, 2019, Toy Dream, Mintyfrills, Sweet LolitaFor those who don't know luckypack dresses are sold in sets, this one comes with a white blouse, headbow and totebag! It's a great option for someone who is starting to get into lolita! They have some non print sets available too. It's nice getting a set though I never wear white blouses myself. I think would be cute to match it with colors from the print instead.

It's an adorable dress and I hope Angelic Pretty will be making more cute dresses in this style next year! Can't wait to see their upcoming collection.

Angelic Pretty: Cookie Scallop

Angelic Pretty Cookie Scallop mintyfrills new release
Really cute non print dress from Angelic Pretty. I always love scallops on dresses and these colors make it look like ice cream! Having two shades of Pink on the same dress is always really cute too. This dress is pretty simple, I feel like it could of had just something more on the skirt part.

Angelic Pretty Cookie Scallop mintyfrills new release
The brown and beige colorways look like chocolate and vanilla ice cream, I'm personally not a big fan of these kind of colors but I'm sure there´s lots of other people that like them.

Been working a lot on getting my Etsy shop together so that I can launch it again soon! Also been a bit more active on my instagram lately, so be sure to check out that. I want to post more on the blog, I will do my best!

Runway: 10 Fashion Trends for Spring 2019

Even though I mostly blog about cute street styles I've always loved runway fashion too. There's a lot of fun fashion going on now and I wanted to make a post about some trends for Spring 2019! I think you can easily take inspiration from some of these no matter what style you wear.

There's something really striking about wearing a monochrome outfit, especially when its bright pop colors! Pick any color you love and go with it. I think this can look really cool with any kind of style, what color would you make an outfit with?

These looks with lots of layers and lace really remind me of the Cult Party Kei aesthetic and they look so gorgeous! I really want a dress like the middle one from Ingle, the sheer fabric with little flower detailing look so dreamy. Hoods like that in sheer fabric should be more of a thing in Cult Party Kei or just with anything! 

Bubblegum pink is one of my favorite colors, especially when mixed in different shades. I need to find more bright bubblegum pink blouses to wear with my pink Lolita dresses. So I am very happy to see more of this wonderful pink coming into fashion!

Yes my frilly friends, pastels are very in style right now. These are just a few of all the gorgeous pastel looks on the runway for Spring 2019. I love the pastel gradient on the 5th look from Marine Serre, more of this please!

Pastels feeling washed out? Why not go for all neon colors! mix and match them in bold color combos and just have fun. Maybe try making a awesome Decora coord with neon colors!

Shiny shiny Silver, perfect for a Uchuu Kei outfit or maybe try wearing a silver bag and shoes with your space themed Lolita outfit. I think mixing neons with shiny silver would make the most amazing Uchuu Kei look.

Another colorful and fun trend coming is Tie Dye. Why not try doing some DIY tie dye with your favorite colors? I think I might try doing that myself. Another options would be looking for some cool tie dye at your local vintage shops.

Lots and lots of denim and mostly in this pale bleached color. Denim is not only for pants though! been seeing jackets, dresses and anything else you can think of in denim too!

While all kinds of colors have been present a standout color that I've seen a lot of is yellow! I've seen bright yellow, marigold, florescent yellow and pastel yellow too, so have your pick of which you like.

Personally I've been excited to see all the vaporwave aesthetic going on in a bunch of collections. There has even been tons of looks with bucket hats! So go get that 80's retrowave miami vice _s a d b o i_ look you know you want.

Hope you liked this post, its a bit different but I figured it would still be fun and interesting! Leave a comment if you would like to see more posts like this. Will be making posts about how to get these kinds of looks and much more!
