So, strangely enough, I've been finding myself being more interested in Baby, the Stars Shine Bright as opposed to Angelic Pretty lately. Honestly, I haven't really liked an AP print since Powder Rose, which was released in January, and while there have been some cute non-print items, there hasn't been anything I really tried to get my hands on since the Rose Ribbon Jewelry. But Baby has actually had several items that I liked!
There is still no preview of Le Lac des Cygnes in pink, so I'm still unsure of it, but another print has got me more excited than that one: Cinderella Jewelry.
I debated on whether or not to reserve this JSK and when I had finally decided that I probably should, I calculated the price with the exchange rate and the set would be $425 before shipping. Unfortunately I cannot swing that right now, so I'm hoping perhaps they will have it at PMX for a tad bit cheaper, although it may be a weak hope. Oh well, if it's meant to be I will find it again someday.
Another dress that I've had my eye on is Merveille Doll:
I don't know if it's a change in style, or just that AP has been a bit lacklustre lately, but I've been keeping more of an eye on Baby, since I've liked more items from them lately.
Although, when I look at my lolita progression, I guess it might make sense?
2006- Discover lolita, but don't wear it. Admire Baby, the Stars Shine Bright due to watching Kamikaze Girls
Oct. 2007- Visit the Angelic Pretty boutique at PMX and decide I want to wear lolita. Purchase first brand items (Angelic Pretty Bag and Socks)
Dec. 2007- Make and wear my first lolita dress; buy my first brand items (Meta Lucky Pack stuff haha!)
2008- Wear a lot of Baby, a bit of AP, Meta. More AP as the year goes on
2009- Sell the last of my Baby, wear exclusively AP
2010- Buy some Baby again, as well as Atelier Pierrot
I guess it might be a natural progression? I do still love AP; their boutique is what made me start wearing lolita, and they do come out with the Hime-esque items that I love. They've just been so lacklustre lately, while Baby has really stepped it up.
Well, that's all for now!
