Sailor Lolita - Fashion
Dress Brand: Bodyline
Outfit Bought in: May 2010
I purchased this outfit on a whim when I found out that my friend Sakura was selling some clothing through LJ in the spring of 2010. I had enjoyed wearing my first Lolita dress that I had purchased during my trip to Japan in 2008 and a picture of this outfit that my friend had posted really stood out to me. Bodyline is a low cost outfit and costume brand and my friend wasn't asking very much for the outfit that included a blouse, tie, headband, short jacket and skirt. The jacket and skirt were especially pretty. I bought the costume from her right away when I saw it listed.
I was quite happy with the overall outfit look. The skirt and jacket fit me really nicely and I really liked the high waist on the skirt since it was very complimentary. I thought the blouse was a bit big, though, so I paired the outfit with a Peace Now blouse that I had purchased from a shop in Japan. I completed the outfit with mary jane shoes, my black wig with pigtail clips and Metamorphose brand socks.
I really loved how this outfit came together. I think the plaid of the skirt along with the black lace and rose details, make the outfit very cute and yet elegant. It definitely has a bit of a school uniform look going for it. I wore this costume on Saturday evening of Fan Expo 2010 with my friend Ammie in her own white Lolita dress. The fact my dress was predominately dark colours and hers was white made for a really cool contrast. We both had fun posing in front of a promo car for the show Supernatural. I've worn this outfit to a couple of events in Toronto and I am looking forward to wearing it again when I get a chance.
