Alice and the Pirates: Starry Moonlight Night Sirene

Alice and the Pirates is also to release a marine print, this one featuring a beautiful Siren! I think this print is really lovely though the only cut I like is the high waist OP, the other cuts feel a bit off on the proportions. As always from btssb and aatp the print is really detailed, which kinda makes a lot of it only visible up close.

Angelic Pretty: Dolly Cat

Still not released yet is Dolly Cat! Of all the prints from Angelic Pretty's sweet spring/summer collection this might be the sweetest! With how well all the dresses have been selling it seems that sweet Lolita is not at all dead. My favorite detail on these dresses is the contrasting ribbons, can't wait to see the other colorways! (Also kittens dude, kittens.)

Angelic Pretty release: Milky Berry Princess

This dress will be coming out this upcoming weekend! At the rate Angelic Pretty's sweet prints have been selling this year so far, its safe to say stay up late and hurry up if you a piece of it. We'll see if people got enough of berries from last print or maybe more people will be jumping on it because they missed out on Cherry Marguerite.

Lolita Meet-up: Sven Harry's art museum

Yesterday we had an awesome meet-up at Sven Harry's museum! We went around looking at awesome art and after that we had some tea at a close by cafe called Ritorno! Also later some of us had sushi at my favorite sushi place sushi yama. 

The theme was 'witches' but I really did not have anything to go with the theme and ended up wearing Promenade de Paris. 

To the left here is Bella, she really went for the theme and looked amazing in a skirt that she made herself. Also on the Right we have Melwin who wore a really cute old school Lolita outfit, I'm so jelly of the dress he is wearing.

Angelic Pretty: Mirage Castle

I think Mirage Castle looks absolutely stunning, this cut is just amazing. Honestly If I had to guess who made this print without knowing I would of probably thought it was baby or aatp. Can't wait to see which other colorways it will come in, I think it can look really different depending on the color. 

Also high hopes are on Angelic Pretty to release the men's wear also, but I think it might just of been made for the show. Though it would be amazing if they started doing more boy style clothing! This look is surprisingly ega rather than ouji.

Royal Princess Alice: new print

Lolita bran Royal Princess Alice just announced this new print on their twitter. I don't know to much about this brand but I think this print looks super cute! It looks like an underwater castle, the dreamy pastel colors look really cute. The dress construction looks simple but good! I would totally consider getting this!

Angelic Pretty fashion show: Cherry Marguerite

More clearer picture from Angelic Pretty's fashion show were posted since all prints have been pretty much revealed! I think the two girls wearing Cherry Marguerite look super cute! This really does make the dress look a lot better! Though I think the little collar to the OP just looks weird, doesn't need it at all! The print looks super cute, looking forward to gingham blouses and berry accessories!

Angelic Pretty Themes: Berries

Angelic Pretty have released quite a few prints with berry themes and I'm going to give you some history on them! Hope you enjoy it. See this as a way to learn some print names also.

the right side one.

Strawberry Princess 
released: 2003
Going back to the old school before custom prints were a big thing in lolita. The simple patern reminds me of drained cherry, but I really miss this typ of detailed OP. This dress is perfect for a country lolita coord going out for a nice picnic.

Cherry Print
released: 2004

Sweet Berry
released: 2005
The name of this dress is unsure as Angelic Pretty released an other dress with the same name a year later. I think that since prints were not as big back then the names were not really that important to them either.

Sweet Berry
released: 2006
A few years later Angelic Pretty releases an other simple berry print. I like the earlier one more but this is also super cute. Prints were still not a big deal at this point. Solid colors were the thing in sweet lolita.

Ichigo Millfeuille
released: 2007
I really love this print and I think the mint colorway actually looks good, red and mint can be hard to coord. This dress can often be found for pretty cheap.

Pretty Cherry
released: 2008

Strawberry Picking
released: 2008

Sweet Ribbon Strawberry
released: 2008
This dress looks like a mess on a small picture but it has a lovely gingham print with rows of strawberries. I own this dress myself and I love it! It really has a old school lolita feel and the print looks great more up close!

Cherry Berry Bunny
released: 2009
This dress has the genius idea to mix lovely berries with really cute bunnies and the result is great! Boarder prints start to get more common and this is a good example of it, it's at this point where there started to be more focus on the print than on the dress details.

Milky Berry
released: 2010
Angelic Pretty continue to consistently produce berry prints every year. This time an other boarder print, I really love the look of this one. around 2010 is when OTT sweet lolita was really huge!

Strawberry Parlour
released: 2011
They again release a strawberry milkshake dress, the detailing on this dress is really cute!

Freshly Picked Strawberries
released: 2013

Drained Cherry
released: 2013
Really popular release, seems like people are looking for more casual dresses since OTT sweet is in a huge decline.

Berry Garden
released: 2014
I think this dress looks way to much like Freshly Picked Strawberries! They are both nice prints but really, they look the same.

Drained Cherry
re-released: 2015
Since it was popular it was released again and sold out pretty quickly again.

released: 2015
not yet released as I am writing this but there seems to be a lot of hype surrounding it, we'll see if it sells out quickly or not! Angelic Pretty have been releasing hit print after hit print. when will their customers run out of money to spend?

released: 2015
Also not yet released but really anticipated! I think all their prints have been really on point this year so far, cant wait to see coords with all these berry prints!

I will try to make more AP theme posts of people like this! Have a good berry coord? Comment with a link to it and I might feature you in a future post!

Angelic Pretty: Cherry Marguerite

Angelic Pretty will be releasing the anticipated Cherry Marguerite this weekend, it will be interesting to see how quickly it sells out! My favorite this time is the red OP, I honestly don't like the other colorways that much but it will be interesting to see how people will coord them! Are you getting this one or are you still holding out for an other dream dress?
