Lolita Blog Carnival: Favourite brand

My favourite Lolita brand is Angelic Pretty because it uses both bright and pastel colours and is very girly as well as being OTT, sweet and classic-sweet.

Most of my favourite prints come from AP. For example, Dreaming of Macarons, Milky planet, Whimsical Vanilla Chan and Promenade de Paris to name a few. Speaking of prints, AP uses a lot of my two favourite motif categories: animals and sweets.

Also, I like the fact that the plastic jewellery that AP produces seem like cheap plastic toy jewellery at first glance, but when you look closer, you can see the craftsmanship and the quality of the plastic. Also, the designs are cute. The headwear AP produces also has similar attention to detail and is very unique.

Above: two examples of plastic accessories that include a few of my favourite things: ice cream, lollies, colour and glitter.

Finally, the signature AP shoe, Tea Parties, are my dream Lolita shoe. I love the ribbon on the end of the shoe as well as the scalloped edge. Also, the strap pattern is quite unique and the Japanese names for the colours remind me of sweets such as marshmallow, chocolate and strawberry milk (go check the Japanese AP online shop if you don't believe me). The only problem with buying Tea Parties is that they are expensive.

At the moment, I do not have anything by AP but when I do my first major Lolita shop, maybe I will find something secondhand. If there was an AP shop/stockist in Australia, I would definitely buy something, even an accessory.
