I ordered the item as soon as the series went live Friday on Angelic Pretty's website. I was pretty nervous since the jsk was my first purchase of a brand item at release, but I managed to get Dreamy Girl in the lavender colorway just like I had planned with relative ease. Perhaps fortunately, the print seems to not be very popular which likely led to my ease of purchase. I did find the fact AP runs two separate charges for the item to be a bit odd, but I overall found the actual checkout system to be rather streamlined and easy. The item itself arrived on a Wednesday which I found to be amazingly fast for an item coming straight from Japan. I was very pleased with the promptness of service delivered.
The lace features a simple bow motif while the bust of the high waist jsk has a line of pearls down the middle with lace ruffling out from each side. The material feels very light but nice with a slight sheen to the fabric as can be seen in the photos above. The waist ties are thin and simple with little pearls dangling from the end, and the similarly thin straps have buttons and are length adjustable. As a note for fitting, the dress has no side zipper but does have full back shirring. The only aspect of the dress I did not love was the bow at the center of the waist which I removed for my own personal wear. The bow just kept continually flopping over and seemed unwilling to uncrease from the bent position seen above after being shipped.
