hello everyone! i have incredible news for you all....
angelic pretty is re-releasing milky planet!!
now, if you've been reading my blog for a while or know me at all, you know milky planet is my absolute favorite dream print. my dream item out of all lolita is the original skirt, in yellow.
♡ so, what are my thoughts on this re-release? ♡
while i am very excited, it's a mixed bag. the new items are sort of weird, more "experimental" or "new fashion" kind of lolita cuts than the total classics of the original series' perfectly silhouettetted OP, JSK, and high waisted skirt. i don't really dig the apron-- i think on someone, it might look pretty cute, but i feel like it interrupts the print a bit. i love the star pockets, but i don't really like it all that much. i might warm up to it when i see it coordinated. i just feel like the series needs to have the print shine on its own.
as for the other items, i LOVE the JSK. i really hope that this time, AP makes a size of it that would fit me. the reason the skirt of the original release is my dream item is because the OP and JSK from the original series are too small in the bust for me. but now it seems like they're making a larger range of sizes, so maybe this will fit me-- at least, i hope so, because i am not a huge fan of these hip-cut skirts.
why is that? again, it is an issue of how it suits the print. i think the print should fall from the natural waist. they should have gone with the original cut from this one, and just let the big change be the color. which, while i love the new colors, i am SO SAD THERE IS NO YELLOW! i love all the original colors, and the new ones as well, but i am so saddened that my very favorite colorway is gone from the lineup. i really love the pink they're using here, though, and if i can get my hands on something (preferably the JSK) i would like it in pink.
the salopette deal-- i don't think it would suit me, but i love salos on others, so i can't wait to see how all you cuties coordinate them! ♡
i hope the international site does something with this re-release and i can get an item with the money i set aside to get MP for my graduation present a year ago. i still have the money for the skirt and i could use it to get a new MP item, and if not i'm still going to get a yellow OP replica someday when DOL's quality gets better. but for now all i can do is have heart attacks while i dig for info, and hope that i can get an item that i like that also fits.... ah, the lolita life...
what do YOU think about the new MP items, everyone??
