Lolita Blog Carnival: Music Inspired Coordinate

Did you know that I was in marching band in my high school days? My instrument of destruction was the clarinet. <3 I'm not going to say I was particularly good, but I did enjoy myself, and I acquired a much deeper love of music. In commemoration of those days spent marching on a football field, I put together a musical coordinate centering around Angelic Pretty's Toy March.
OP: Angelic Pretty Toy March
Wristcuffs: Angelic Pretty Heart Charm Bell Ribbon
Hat: Angelic Pretty Toy March
Tights: Many sellers on ebay
Boots: Innocent World Gretel Short Boots
Clarinet pin: Many sellers, check your local music shop especially around graduation time
Bag: Bodyline bag173 in green

The coordinate is centered around a general lolita marching band type feel. The teddy bears and squirrels gallantly play their instruments on the print of the dress. The boots go with the polished button feel I tend to associate with bands, while music notes run down the legs, a tune slowly shifting while you walk. I added a clarinet pin in particular because of my instrumental background. The music notes tote is a final touch, another beat to sway while you walk.

That's a wrap on my coordinate and an explanation for the piece choices. To see what other lolitas have thought would be great musical lolita coordinates, please see the links below.


  1. This outfit is really cute and the idea is really nice too!

    1. Thank you so much! I had a lot of fun playing with this coordinate.
