Angelic Pretty Dreaming Macaron!

Following along on my blog, you may have often noticed the sentiment of me wanting a brand lolita piece. Though Bodyline has some nice looking pieces, I've seen a lot of prints that brands have released that I'd longed to try. So, after saving up this summer, I finally took the plunge and purchased my first brand piece second hand. Drum roll please....


Angelic Pretty Dreaming of Macaron OP! I had seen the print before and loved how the delicious sweets lining its border looked, so when I saw it second hand, I had to snatch it up.

Though the official measurements of the OP on Hello Lace are for an 88 cm bust and a 70 cm waist, the full shirring of the piece provides much more room for fitting. I found a statement from a post on Pepperminttealove where she states that it can fit up to a 45 inch bust (114 cm) and a 40 inch waist (101 cm) for the maximum measurements. Though I haven't checked to confirm her listed maximums, I found that the dress fit me very comfortably at a 42 inch bust and a 35 inch waist. 

On to pictures of my particular OP:


The main difference I noticed between the Angelic Pretty dress and my Bodyline dresses was a heavier, thicker fabric on the Angelic Pretty piece and also the fully lined inside of the dress. 

I found the occasion to wear the dress at a wedding this past weekend. Below is a run down of my coordinate:

Dress: Angelic Pretty
Socks: Sock Dreams
Wrist cuffs: Claire's
Handbag (which I never got a good picture of): Harajuku Mini
Glasses, shoes: random offbrand
I also had the pleasure of taking a lovely picture at the event with my delightful boyfriend in this outfit:
