Sweet Classic Surprise!

Sweet Classic Lolita isn't a real "style," but it's what I call a blend of Sweet Lolita with a slightly more elegant, mature look that isn't as grown-up as Classic Lolita (think Mary Magdalene.) I suppose you can say that Sweet Classic is like the teenager stage of growing from Sweet Lolita to Classic Lolita!

Innocent World is the best brand to illustrate what I mean by this style. Today as I was perusing my feed on Livejournal, I was surprised to spot some Sweet Classic pieces by my favorite brand, BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT!

The muted colors and floral print are very Classic, but it's still rather sweet and lacey with ribbons all over! Follow the jump for more pictures and also the corset skirt~

The red wine color of this dress looks more mature and elegant.

The corset skirt is love! I especially like the two little roses at the center.

What is your favorite blend of styles? In addition to Sweet Classic, I also like Sweet Punk Lolita! Maybe I am just a Sweet Lolita at heart and feel the need to add a touch of sugar and lace to everything ;)

I'd also like to say thanks to the readers who are sticking with me! I've been incredibly busy with Fashion Design homework. The photoshoots turned out well though, so I will probably post them here~ They aren't exactly Lolita-related, but I like them!

Hello! Sorry for the unexpected break in blogging! I've hit a few snags in the EGLB sewing tutorial I was working on. Namely, none of the pattern pieces actually fit together (I'm doing the Kana Knickerbockers) so I'm at a bit of a loss about what to do. They are off by about 4 inches :o

Last week was my midterms, and I'm happy they are over! I haven't been wearing Lolita at all :( But I've started up on my other hobby of making cards! I'm making cards for my friends in the USA and will post photos (well, if they're not too horrid) when I am done!

I hope everybody has been having a good few weeks and good luck on midterms for those of you who are in school!
