I spent some time on Boxing day replacing the worn-out elastic in the sleeves of BTSSB's Tartan Check Ribbon Tiny Sleeves JSK, one of my newest acquisitions. And, with the fixing all done I thought it'd be nice to try out some coording possibilities with it.
I've always had a soft spot for tartan, and this dress is not only pretty but is really super comfortable! I like that it's a bit old-school, but not so much so that that's the only way you can wear it. All in all it's a piece I'm very glad to have gotten my hands on!
Firstly, I wanted to put together something simple and old-school with it. I'm not a huge fan in the end though, it doesn't seem old-school enough. But it's an idea to play with in future, and I'd definitely still wear this.
Next I wanted to make something... well, totally me.I love this outfit! It's super cute, very comfortable and wonderfully cozy. Also, a random fact that I enjoy is that JSK, bolero and socks were all bought on Japanese auctions. Gotta love that online shopping.
Lastly I waned to try pairing it with the Alice in the Pirates cutsew that I did end up pinching from the model wardrobe after all. This outfit is quite simple but I think it's cute; off-white tights are meant to be included as well but don't look so good in pictures. This is less something I would wear but is still an outfit I think is really cute.
So you have any tartan in your lolita wardrobe?
