Daily Lolita: Laces, Buttons, & Bows

August 11th, 2013

One of the reasons it takes me so long to post is because I believe in doing things right. Many dresses, even ones branded as “Lolita” don’t meet the strict criteria of the fashion. For instance, this beautiful Coquette dress from Wishbox. I loved it from the moment I saw it because of all the lace, but like it’s name, it is really too risque for anything but Ero Lolita (and probably a bit too risque for even that). However, with a little work, I have a gorgeous Classic ensemble. I was sad to see the lovely, off-the-shoulder lace sleeves go, but there was just no way to keep them and cover the shoulders. However, I love how the Lassitude & Ennu jacket picks up on the contrasting pink. I also had to layer a black undershirt beneath the bodice because the lace was completely sheer. The bonnet is rigged mesh and full perm, so I made a texture for the back that matches the pink of the jacket. Notice the beautiful buttons and details on the boots! The hair is the lovely Hope from Love Donna Flora, which ends today, so dress up and head over there!
