LOLITA BLOG CARNIVAL: MAY FLOWERS

A quick entry for this week’s LBC theme- a floral coordinate!

I just got this AatP blouse (Rosier Chiffon) in the mail, and the little ribbon roses on the collar absolutely slay me. It’s a nice blue-toned mint, and the first blouse I’ve come across that really compliments the blue of JetJ’s Swanhilde Écharpe. I wasn’t too concerned with trying to match all of the colors in that dress, though- it’s got so many elements and accents that it would be a nightmare trying to balance them all. Instead, I’ve paired it with Triple Fortune’s Green Kingdom tights, which have a filigree and floral design that makes for a nice extension to the artwork on the skirt. They’re so similar that they actually blend into the skirt, whoops!
And to complete the look: a rose cabochon necklace from Bijou Brigitte, gold Axes Femme pumps to compliment the bronze-gold-dark ivory elements of the tights and dress, and a fancy flower coronet.

Unfortunately, it seems like we’re getting April showers a little late- these May flowers will have to wait for another weekend, but for now, there are plenty of other floral coordinates to enjoy (below!).

    I think this is such a hard dress to co-ord, the headpiece matches so perfectly, it looks great! The kitten on the front reminds me of mine when he was little. ^_^
