Peaches and cream; L173 outfits

I love the colours in this skirt - peaches and cream indeed! And it's floral, so really it ticks all my lolita fashion boxes.


Pieces like this skirt are why I really don't get people who point blank think Bodyline is terrible. Sure, they have done replicas and Mr Yan is pretty shady and their stuff is not on the same level of quality as brand, but still. This skirt is gorgeous, and I wouldn't like it any more if it was brand.

But as I often say - enough rambling, onto the outfits!


First up I really wanted to use one of my new cutsews from The Black Ribbon, and came up with this light and airy summertime outfit. I would wear this with cream ankle socks as well. What's actually kind of ironic is that a day or two after I took these photos, I went shopping with James and finally found a hair flower that is basically a perfect match for he flowers on the skirt; a darker, more orange shade of pink. But this outfit (and the others in this post) still look great with slightly mis-matched flowers!


For the second outfit I wanted to run with a darker colour scheme, and I really like the result. Perhaps different socks would have worked better, but overall I really like this outfit. It's a bit unusual, and definitely nice and casual.


Then in my last outfit I wanted to do something different and also use an item I hadn't yet used - my Innocent World cape. And in the end this outfit may just be my favourite of the lot! Though in all honesty I'd be most likely to wear the first look this one is just so cosy and delightfully mis-matched I can't help but love it.

Do you tend to like to wear lolita in a more well coordinated manner, or do you like it when outfits go a little sideways or normal?

  1. I like all three outfits, they're all so, so cute and feminine. But the quirky mismatching really draws me to the last one, that's so appropriate for autumn just for going out shopping when you want to feel a little bit more chic. I'd love to see this one being taken for a spin and be worn. :D

    1. Thank you! I'm actually glad to hear you like the last one, I had thought it may be a bit too mis-matched so it's nice to hear I'm not the only one who likes it! I definitely plan to wear it eventually.

  2. Beautiful colors, I love how each coord draws out different colors from the print, and that last coord is sooo cute (those boots)! That skirt really is a lovely piece, too.

    1. Thank, I'm glad you like them! The boots are my fave (Axes Femme ftw) and the skirt is just so simply lovely.

  3. That skirt is so amazing, I still figure out which colour I want it in, but the beige is so nice. My favorite is first one, simple yet detailed, a necklace, bracelet and a ring and I would go in it.

    1. All the colours are super nice, it's such a pity they don't make this (and the dress version) any more. Thank you, I definitely intend to wear the first outfit sometime.
