OOTD : Neapolitan Stripes

JSK - Handmade | Blouse - Forever 21 | Petticoat - F+F | Bloomers - Metamorphose | Socks - Angelic Pretty | Shoes - Irregular Choice | Jewelry (candy ring and earrings - handmade), Love Cookie ring Strawberry Victoire

I finished this JSK and the pin in time despite having less than a week to actually work on it due to my work schedule (I made it for the February Monthly Challenge in the Sew Loli community... which, while it wasn't meant for that originally as I'd planned on making this for Vday and all, it just happened to work out that way since the theme was stripes or plaids and I'd been too sick on Vday to start it then ^^;). It's completely different than I originally envisioned it to be, but overall I'm pretty happy with it.

The front bows and the cupped cake ribbon pin are detachable. The skirt and bodice are fully lined, it has back shirring and a side zip, plus detachable waist ties.

I finally have my Neapolitan Co'ord and was able to wear my Iced Cream Shooses from Irregular Choice.

They were a bit of an impulse buy because I caught the last pair in my size on sale (seriously, I stalk IC at times for their sales because it's about the only way I'm willing to spend any real cash on occasion shoes xD), but I'm glad I got them, they are a little high and I can see that walking in them for long hours will end up in some foot pains, but for special occasions they are ace.

I adore the Sundae details on the front. It's so very silly, but also so very Irregular Choice (I think they really do just throw random things at the shoes at times and call it a day. They are often ridiculous, yet somehow they always manage to work.)

I also adore how the heels are clear. They remind me of a super sweet version of a Cinderella shoe X3


  1. I love this! Very nice work, and I love the shoes too <3

    1. Thank you so much [and me too, those shoes are so much love <3]

  2. I can't say enough how adorable this jsk is! [Anything with stripes is instant love for me ^^] I love the color combo and the bow and the shoes--which just could not fit the coord any better.
