I was lucky enough to get the Royal Chocolate skirt I wanted when AP USA put it up for sale online <3 The pink socks were the only ones left, but they seem to match well enough, so I ordered those too. I just went into the store today to pick them up.
The details really make this piece, between the buttons, the "dripping" scallops, and the pleats that look like candy bars. I can feel a little bit smug knowing this probably won't be replicated because it's textured rather than printed.
I also stopped by Baby the Stars Shine Bright to check out their summer sale. A lot of things are 30-50% off. I ended up getting a gorgeous pearl and crown necklace and an adorable parasol pin. They will definitely be part of my coord for the fashion contest at the J-Pop Summit next weekend.
Here are my outfits from the past two days. They're not lolita or otome, but they're cute, so close enough.
