Lolita Vending At An Anime Convention & Baby's New Rose Ornament print.

Long time no post! Well, long time for me at least. It's been a whole week! I have had a hectic weekend at the convention, which ended up surpassing everyone's expectations and getting 600+ people. Not too bad for a convention's first year. I made some new friends, met interesting new people, saw some familiar faces, and had a real blast selling stuff! And yes, I will be be opening an Etsy shop soon in the future. I really want to do some more convention vending but I think I may have missed out on any open tables for the conventions coming up this year. Oh well, maybe next year?

I ended up forgetting all my business cards on my bookshelf (oops!) but I gave out my blog URL on quite a few pieces of scrap paper when people asked, so if I met you at the con, say hi!


Now, onto the burando! Baby, The Stars Shine Bright have a few new prints on reserve, but I want to talk about the new Rose Ornament print.

I think I am in love! The design, I think, is just lovely. It has a very old school Classic Lolita look to it. Especially with the bonnet! Check out that print! It's absolutely gorgeous and completely decadent. The name sounds very familiar, has Baby released a Rose Ornament print before?

Can you believe how pretty this is? I'm usually a fan of black colorways, but I think the blue and white is even more beautiful.

Besides the Rose Ornament print, baby has a few new prints up there sleeve.

Strawberry and Cherry, misspelled as "Chetty", is another new print that comes in two JSK versions, including a shirred version. The print is adorable, and both JSK designs are really cute. I love the retro look of the first one, and the shirred one is just perfect as well. I am not a fan of the black colorway though, it just looks very busy. I am a bit tempted to pick this up in a pastel color though!

Mary's Sweet Sheep is another cute print from Baby, this time, I think it looks much cuter on the dress than I think the Strawberry and Cherry print does. And up close the print is just so cute. I love the little lambs most of all! They have a very retro look to them, which I just love. This reminds me of a sweet 1950's print. This print is used on a few different pieces, a skirt, and two different styles of JSK. One of those styles is sold in 3 different sizes! Finally Baby is releasing another print in multiple sizes! Although, the JSK sold in one size is, while not fully shirred, has quite a bit of shirring in it, so it's probably going to fit a few sizes. I am, sadly, not too much of a fan of the various JSK styles. The one size one is empire waisted, and while I do love empire waist dresses, I really just like them in the Gothic prints, I feel a bit too much like a toddler in pastel empire waists. The multi-size JSK has a cute design, but probably too plain. I personally think it could use a ruffle or two.

Sleeping Beauty is lovely print that everyone is talking about from Baby's Alice and the Pirates line. I, personally, am not that big of a fan of it. Maybe it's just the two colorway choices, but the black and red doesn't really do it for me, I think, from far away, it looks like too many other AatP prints, and I am just not that big of an ivory fan for the other colorway. The design is lovely, I love the crisscrossing straps on the front, a feature that I think is perfectly Lolita.

  1. I love the strawberry cherry but also find the black too busy. It's a really dense print but I definitely like it on the blue and kinari colorways. Chic vintage!

    And yay for a shirred version! But I wish it had some cross straps halter straps. It just seems plain up top.
