Royal Princess Alice: Sweet Monster Castle


mintyfrills kawaii cute lolita fashion pretty theme

New hot mess coming to you in time for Halloween, Having mixed feeling about Royal Princess Alice's new print Sweet Monster Castle. It's too bad when prints get a bit to seasonal, limiting when it feels appropriate to wear it. For example my lavender Candy Treat jsk from Angelic Pretty looks great for Halloween coords but I can wear it for the rest of the year also. I think this would of been better if they just skipped the boarder print and went with the simple style of the rest of the print. They don't seem to go together at all anyways.

The cuts are as always from RPA boring and very meh. The font picked for the print name is so bad I don't even know what to say. Why not just use comic sans while you are at it? And I really understand why people are tired of crosses on everything and this time of the year its just going to get worse.

The front part of the collar is fine but the back part goes way to far down for being that plain. Shorten it or put a design on there! As always there is a lack of trim around the bottom of the skirt part.

These tights don't make sense, why place the boarder print over the top? Why not just go with the cute simple style here too. Who's going to see it? Why did you bother? So many questions...
Get it together Royal Princess Alice, step it up.

Fashion Valentine: Tori Time

mintyfrills sweet kawaii lolita cute pretty harajuku classic

After a few months break fashion valentines is now back! This weeks fashion valentine is the lovely Tori. A pretty well dressed lolita from the US. I love that her outfits always feel so perfectly balanced, both with colors and with having just the right amount of accessories for a cohesive look. Her outfits never feel like its 'too much' but not at all plain either. Be sure to go follow her on instagram and tumblr!

I love how she picks up the gold details of the print, more complementing the print than distracting from it. This looks like it is both perfectly dressed up but still comfy enough to just go into town shopping. Matching the shoes with the bag always looks great but having the cardigan and cute bow on the blouse really works!

Tori really looks like and angel in this cute but more classic look. The headdress is so pretty, I love the little details hanging down over her fringe. The hair is big but not overtaking like some rhapsody wigs can be.

I feel like this deep blue color suits her perfectly, I love the hairstyling on the left picture. It really completes the look. Her makeup is always really cute too. It's nice that she takes the time to get really nice photos of her outfits, there are so many girls that dress amazing but never get any outfit pictures.

Her outfits always feel like a complete set, nothing looks out of place. I love wrapping ribbon, and she coorded it so cute here. And I love the bag that she has on the right picture, every colorway of the bag all look amazing. (I want one too!!)

Tori always looks on point and her style inspires me because I want to make my looks as cohesive as hers. I often have problems getting the right balance on my ott sweet looks. Tori you look amazing and keep doing what you are doing. I look forward to seeing more of your outfits.

Outfit: Infanta Strawberry Doll

kawaii sweet cute lolita fashion devilinspired berry

Recently I wore my new Infanta dress that I got from Devilinspired! Its a really cute berry print that is cute enough to compete with Angelic Pretty prints! The fabric and details are a bit lower quality than AP but still looks really nice and the pricetag is also considerably lower. I picked the yellow colorway since I want more things in this color and though I could make some really cute coords with it. In this outfit I matched it with a yellow Metamorphose blouse, my yellow honey cake headbow and cute yellow folded socks from swimmer. To match with the red in the print I have some red hair accessories that I made, a red ring and red shoes from Angelic Pretty. I added the waist ties from my red sweet ribbon strawberry dress as a big bow on my blouse. I love using waist ties from other dresses! The strawberry bag from Angelic Pretty I feel just went with the theme!

I really love the strawberry jar, dessert and basket. Its just a really good print design. Another bright side of this brand is that it comes in several sizes! I'm wearing it in size M and its super comfortable. I was just around town with my friend Gabriel getting some crafts materials and I also ordered new glasses, look forward to getting them!

Angelic Pretty: Magic Amulet

mintyfrills kawaii sweet lolita fashion cute harajuku halloween

Angelic Pretty is now releasing Magic Amulet! I think its cute and pretty different from most AP prints. I feel like its just coming out in time for Halloween, I like the creepy cute look of it. Though the colorways are dreadful, I love the lavender but the other two look just really off. I think a black, white and maybe pink colorway would of worked better. The OP is really pretty, I think it works well with the style of the print. I still don't like overlays and the lacing looks cheap too. The other jsk is better but I don't really like the cross on the front of it.

Cheval de Bois: Lemon Garden

mintyfrills kawaii sweet lolita fashion harajuku yellow dress

Taobao brand Cheval de Bois are releasing this refreshing summer print called 'Lemon Garden'. I like the print, the color scale is really nice with the pale green in it. The design is nice and doesn't feel like a copy of something else. I like both the cuts, the jsk is pretty basic but had some nice details on the bust and a nice white trim on the bottom. The bodice of the OP is really nice. I like the frill and ribbons. If their sleeves has good stretch I think it would be really comfortable. I've been trying to add some more yellow to my closet, I think its a very underrated color in Lolita fashion.

I love the wide selection of headpieces available to match. The bonnet looks adorable but maybe a bit too sweet for this style of dress, but could work with the right coord. The frilly veil is nice and this type of pieces had been more popular lately. I think my favorite is the white more flat hat. It goes best with the aesthetic of this dress.

I like the matching accessories they have for it, I think some people miss having the set like in the Japanese brand releases so its good that its available for people who like to have the cookie cutter set. Some of these are so nice I would want them even if I don't have the dress.

Angelic Pretty: 6 New Upcoming Prints!

mintyfrills sweet lolita cute kawaii fashion fall new print

I know I already made a post about upcoming prints but since many of them have been released and there are new pictures of some and also some all new announced since then I though I would make a new post!

Antique Chocolaterie
I'n my last post I said that I was wondering what colorways it would be released in since then there was only pictures of the turquoise one. I probably would not of guessed these colors, even though its not colors I really wear I do think it looks pretty. I look forward to seeing others make coords with it!

Cirque de L'etoile
I stick with what I said before, it looks like a mix of Star Night Theater and British Bear! This is also a very pretty but not my style print. I love the type of themed coords others do with this kind of print though. Its lovely dress suitable for the fall season.

Magic Amulet
This is an interesting print coming from Angelic Pretty. I really love the lavender colorway and I know a lot of girls who will really love it! I kinda feel like the are forcing in that shade of turquoise in their fall collection and its been pretty with some of the prints but I just don't get it with this style. I think the OP works well with the creepy cute kind of aesthetic, I'm weary of long sleeve OP's due to fit issues but this looks like it could be pretty comfortable. I don't like the jsk, I think it looks a bit cheap and the cross on the front is just overkill.

Dressy Time
This just looks like an amazing piece but it will probably be in the price range of their anniversary dresses. The kind of dress I would love to own but it will just cost way more than I would one to pay for one dress. The flower headpiece also looks adorable. Frills, frills and more frills.

Rose Museum
This dress looks really lovely, it really falls more into the classic style than typical Angelic Pretty. The pink colorway looks really dainty and sweet. Don't know about the blue/lavender one, I'm waiting until there are more clear pictures of the print to make my judgement.



mintyfrills sweet lolita cute kawaii fashion fall new printmintyfrills sweet lolita cute kawaii fashion fall new print
Heavenly Cross
Another pretty basic print. It feels like a mix of Milky Cross and Shadow Carnival. Even though the dress is cute a lot of people are getting tired of crosses on everything since some take issue with wearing a religious symbol. Its a bit of a culture clash since the cross doesn't have the same important meaning in japan, Its more used for the aesthetic.



Looking forward to more releases, they seem to be rolling out more and more all the time!
