Lolita Blog Carnival: My Favourite Print Theme in Lolita

 In Lolita, I have two favourite print themes: cute animals and sweets. If I think about it, all of my dream dresses have one or both of those themes. Even my latest dream dress, Promenade de Paris has these in the form of a poodle and a patisserie in the background as well as a lolly shop.

Above: Angelic Pretty's Promenade de Paris print. There are plenty of lolly shops and patisseries present but the adorable poodle does play a minor role here.

Above: AP's Dreaming of Macarons OP. I wish I could show the picture that made be fall in love with the print though but close enough (the original picture had the mint colourway).
What do I like about these two themes? I'm just a sucker for anything cute and really enjoy sweets. Actually, my first dream dress, Dreaming of Macarons fits under this theme even though I had never tasted nor knew what a macaron is at that point (I've had plenty of them now). However, what got my attention was the cakes that were present at the bottom of the OP. That was around five years ago before macarons became popular in Australia.

Recently, I saw Infanta's creamy cat print while looking for what to buy on my first Taobao shop. Because it combines both of my favourite print themes together, I wanted it as soon as I saw it. I just hope it hasn't sold out yet.

Speaking of sweets, AP's not yet released print, Donut Holiday, looks really good too. I have never seen donuts in a Lolita print before but only time will tell how it goes.

Above: Not Lolita related, but I could not help but think of Homer Simpson when I saw Donut Holiday. Sweet prints...mmm. (My words: Cute animals...awwww.)
