AATP's Scent Of Rapunzel, Sweet As It Seems?

It seems like everyone's talking about the new AATP release, The Scent Of Rapunzel. Along with the OP, there are also two JSKs, a skirt, bonnet, headbow, socks, necklace, earrings and a brooch.
It can't be denied that it is a very pretty dress, but I can't shake the feeling that AATP, and Baby in general, are being rather repetitive with some of their prints.
For example, in this release alone, I can see the prints Sleeping Beauty and Music Salon. Although, that could just be me. I see minute similarities a mile off!

Now, here's something I really like about this release.
Each colour looks completely different. With most prints, you can tell that they're the same straight away no matter what colour they are. However, the print even changes slightly on each one! On the black x pink, we see a blush pink background to the print, on the offwhite x lavender, it's a powdery blue, on the red, a soft ivory-cream, and on the other black (not pictured, the background is a very pale, almost white blue.

So does anyone plan to reserve it?


Makeover & A Decision!

As you can see, I've changed the template of the blog, and if I ever stop being lazy I might find the time to make a nice banner.
I've decided to keep writing, but it will be a bit diary-based. Who knows, it could be fun! :)

Just thought I'd let you know.
Now, onto the newness!
Or something.... :P

Help Me, Fellow Lolitas!

I'm not sure what I'm doing with this blog anymore. I've decided that I don't want it to be one of those general advice Loli-Blogs, because there are so many of them already, but I still love blogging.

So... I'm going to ask for your help here. What do you think I should do with this blog?

Should I make it a bit diary-based? No, I wouldn't be ranting to you or anything... :P I'd still gush over new releases from x amounts of brands, but I'd probably post co-ords, Lolita-related stuffs that I do, maybe craft projects and stuff. I might still do a little advicey stuff, but not often, and it'll be an overall freer format.


Not bother.


[insert idea here]

I'm open to suggestions, so please, suggest away! :D
I love blogging, and I love getting feedback on things, so I don't really want to just leave it :/

If I'm not posting, or if I do abandon this, you can follow my intrepid adventures in MS Paint at Hate To Be Doing Physics. :P

Vampire Requiem Re-Release... But There's A Catch...

Yes, it's hard to believe, but it's true! Alice and The Pirates are re-releasing the crazy popular Vampire Requiem! The reserve date is the 4th of February, and...
...there's a new colourway! I personally think it's gorgeous, but am still in love with the red most of all!

So, Vampire Requiem being re-released, all great and happy, and even with a new colour! What's the catch?

Well, If you're a lover of the lavender or ivory versions, you'll be disappointed (if you don't own it already, that is) because these two colours won't be a part of the release! Why? Goodness only knows, I think they're lovely, and I'm sure there would be people lining up for them. This means that only the Red x Black, Black x Black and the new Blue colours will be released. Odd, but I suppose one can't complain, this re-release wasn't something anyone saw a mile off...

Oh, and there's a second catch, which may not actually be a catch.
According to AATP's Yablog:
"You can reserve it at our Shinjuku, Harajuku, Sendai and Nagoya locations, but the reservation period is only between Feb. 4 - Feb. 6, so you have to hurry! There will be a sample picture in-store."

In store.
In. Store.
Now, I THINK that this may just be a sort of special, pre-web reservation, but one can't be sure. It would be a shame if that's not the case, as it would be a lot of trouble for people to get a shopping service arranged so soon!

I suppose one can only hope....
