As a reader of my blog, you probably know that I am a huge fan of Lolita dresses and skirts with prints. With lots of pastels. Containing animals or candy. With a cute name. Preferably Angelic Pretty. But I am not the kind of girl who jumps at every new (or old) release. For example: when Angelic Pretty announced they would re-release Toy Fantasy, I didn’t throw a party in my room which only I attended in celebration of the new-but-also-old-release . I thought: ‘That’s nice! I like that print in white!’ and moved on. Oh, for the record: there’s nothing wrong with throwing a party for yourself. ^^ Just so you don’t think I’m against solo-parties.
Anyway, back on topic. My wishlist is filled with Angelic Pretty dresses (and the occasional Baby, the Stars Shine Bright) and it continues to grow, because I often fall in love with prints once I see them on pictures being worn. But today, a couple of hours ago, I fell in love with an Angelic Pretty dress without print! Even better: its design is so simplistic I had to rub my eyes to see if my heart was beating faster for a reason. And yes, it was!
The dress in question: Sugary Baby Doll jumperskirt. The pink one is my favourite. This dress is so simple, so sweet yet so elegant, so perfect for any occasion! It has the Lolita shape, colour and beauty, but it won’t draw as much attention as, let’s say, an over the top Milky Planet outfit!
I saw this dress on Tumblr and my God, it hit me right in the face! I jumped to the Angelic Pretty site and I even hesitated for a slight moment while my heart was yelling: ‘Why not buy it?’ and my mind was shouting: ‘Why buy it?’ I’ve created a strict spending-plan that doesn’t allow room to buy dresses at the moment, let alone a dress I just met. Discovered. Excuse me.
Anyway, while my heartbeat was gradually slowing down again, I started looking around on HelloLace. This time, I skipped the OTT prints and went looking for the simple, printless dresses I usually didn’t really look at.
It made me realise how much lovely dresses Angelic Pretty has released that many people don’t even know of! I’d like to show you some of my favourites:
Ok, I’ll be honest: I have overreacted a little in this post. Two of these dresses, no. 2 and 5, are already on my wishlist, because I think they’re gorgeous. But it’s true that I’ve really (re)discovered Angelic Pretty’s printless dresses. I’m defintely going on the hunt for some more! And while I’m at it, maybe some BtSSb too! So, do you have any printless dresses you’re completely in love with? I'd love to know!
