It’s finals week, and what does that mean?
Procrastination with dollmakers, yaaaaay!
Note to self: make posts of direct comparisons between IW stock photos and actual owner photos, because holy god, I love IW so much but they really are atrocious about over-exposing their stock photos and making the colors just look outright acidic when they’re almost always far more subtle and, well, beautiful.
An Innocent World skirt I’ve been keeping my eye on for a while just came up on the sales comm, for the same price it was on sale on the site with much cheaper shipping, and the skirt itself is now no longer listed on the IW website.
I have just sent a PM about buying this skirt, because man, the exact skirt I want in the exact colorway I want for the exact right price just appearing like that is too much of a sign for me to pass up. XD
EDIT: I just realized I literally dreamed about this skirt last night wtf. I had a dream where I found someone selling basically all my wishlist skirts for really good prices and this skirt was one of them.
… I’m now a little creeped out, but still pleased.

sweet mother of frills yes
all of this yes
Someone tell me how to make that green skirt/bolero set mine. I have a MIGHTY NEED.

Gothic Lolita Wigs: Classic Auburn Light Lolita
Black Peace Now: blouse
Double Decker: rocking horse shoes
Alice & the Pirates: Carousel Applique JSK II
And thus begins the difficult process of waiting for non-shooped stock photos? :P
Or the debate of “do I risk it and hope that I can resell it later if it all goes to hell?” XD
But if you get it then I can continue to live vicariously through your wardrobe. lol
My concern now is that the lace on the hem will be the same white as all the other colorways even though the violin detail on the waist is in brown for the mint colorway. That could possibly bother me… or it could not I have no idea. XD
I want to love this so bad, then I see the lace on the bottom. :(
It might be my old-school tendencies showing but I kind of like the lace on the bottom (music note lace! XD). It’s difficult to see in the mint stock photo though, and the detail shot of the lace does look a bit messy, I agree there. I still really love it, but the question is whether I’ll love it for $200.
I love it but I think the bottom is a bit plain.
Fair. I really love plain skirts (one of my favorite skirts is basically this exact same cut with two stripes on the bottom as the only adornment), though, so it could be perfect for my tastes. Again, though, the issue of $200 worth of love. XD
I think I know what your next purchase is gonna be. lol
It is so tempting. I just… REALLY wish we saw more details. I suspect the mint sample is a photoshop, which isn’t uncommon for the lolita brands, but I want deetaaails.
