1 Dress 4 Looks Take 31


So far I’ve been doing these posts in the order in which I obtained the dresses. I was very seriously considering doing a post with my Heart E tartan JSK, however, it’s not quite traditional lolita. There are certainly lolita ways to wear it, but I haven’t had the time (and sometimes the right pieces) to do that just yet. So let’s ignore that order for now, I’ll return to the Heart E piece and meantime let’s enjoy the prettiness that is Haenuli’s Lovely Memories JSK.

Look 1: Pastel Elegant Lady

In the past I saved my favourite looks til last, but I’m scrapping that too, I want my favourite coord to be this post’s thumb image. I wasn’t entirely sure whether this would translate into a flatlay as well as it looked in my head, so it’s nice to see that it did. Pastel pinks and blues are a match made in heaven and even though the blues don’t match, it somehow works in that vintage way that’s ok with some mismatch. This outfit gives me serious elegant lady goes for afternoon tea during summer vibes and it’s a mood I can 100% get behind.

Look 2: Casual Sweet

Although it’s a very classic lolita dress, I wanted to see if I could sweeten it up a little. The whites and mints distract from the unusual shade of pastel blue, whilst still working well with it. Maybe it’s the bolero, OTKs and beret combo, but this outfit makes me think of early autumn, when it’s starting to get chilly, but before the weather gets too miserable. And with the tea party shoes this would be comfy enough to go café hopping or light shopping. Maybe it will get worn like this one day…

Look 3: Starry Snowflake Ball

| Lady Sloth Glitter Mesh blouse | Baroque overskirt | Angelic Pretty Harlequinade OTKs | Angelic Pretty Elegant Doll boots | Haruhi Clover headbow | Sweet Doly House and vintage brooches |
It’s only recently that I realised how much this dress reminds me of Elsa from Frozen (maybe it’s because of the Frozen 2 trailers?). So whilst this isn’t exactly inspired by her, I wanted to do something fancy and winter themed. The overskirt’s fringe and the blouse are such a perfect colour match, it’s unbelievable! If I were to wear this, it might be with the blouse off shoulders, I’m not sure – I’d certainly play with that idea. And hopefully the overskirt would sit much nicer worn than it does on the flatlay, it wasn’t the easiest thing to make it look neat.

Look 4: Trusty Sailor

| Hell Bunny cardigan | Innocent World Anchor OTKs | Sosic Shop heels | offbrand beret | vintage necklace | Twinkle Kitty Boutique rings |
It feels like a while since I broke out my trusty sailor lolita combo. It’s an old favourite, though this time I used far fewer red accents than I have in the past. They’re still there, but I wanted to keep the focus on the blues. And whilst the casual sweet outfit above was making me think of autumn, this one is definitely early spring, when it’s still chilly enough to need some layers, but getting brighter and nicer. For summer it would definitely have to be my sailor cutsew and some ankle socks, so at least it’s not a difficult transformation either.

Last time I wore this dress was in January and next time I plan on wearing it will be December. Given the fabric and that it’s basically a summer release, I should make more effort to wear this during warmer weather, yet life doesn’t seem to be working out this way for me. Oh well, one day I’m sure it will.


  1. Oh wow, this dress is amazing and I love all these ways you've coorded it.

    1. Thank you. It is a truly amazing dress and I'm so glad I got it. I'm planning on wearing it to Winter ILD this year, though I also realise I need to do more spring/summer coords with it, it can't be a forever winter dress.
