I know some anons were looking for this dress.
Been posting these fucking socks everywhere trying to buy them. At least one is on yj auctions.
Happy Garden Special Set in sax, + socks.
I have never seen one of these for sale. I'm also down with the skirt and non special set cutsew. Or pretty much everything sax Happy Garden. Happy Garden 5ever.
God damn over all the years I've been into the fashion I've never seen this for sale.
I guess it continues...
>mfw bought one of my dream dresses for 58 bucks and it's a recent release too
Sure it had a little bit of damage to it, but not necessarily enough for it to go that low.
Still primarily interested in Twinkle Ornament. I know about the Candy Treat on lacemarket but shipping from overseas would be a pain.
iktf anon, my longtime dream dress finally turned up for 8800 yen :D
I wish I wanted easier to find stuff
Literally any cut of this series in black. I know it's on LM right now but the price is still kind of steep for me. If I can't find any other one I might go for it tho.
Please let me know if you come across this print!!
Hoping this won't come up while I'm still broke from the holy lantern mto
I know the white is on CC and Tokyo Alice but I'm only really want the purple one
I'm so sorry anon... I was hoping it was you that got it!
I know your pain anon, I was the one looking for the black skirt for so long. Navy colorway is the worst, so many times I've scrolled past and thought maybe that was the black, but nope- fucking navy. Always fucking navy.
I got it! I forgot to check it off the list but I got it!
Pretty much name your price for this headbow, can pay immediatley.
Is there a dress with the same regal aesthetic as la robe vert clair/ bleu, but that would fit a 70cm waist?
This was my dream dress, but I'm not gonna buy it now that I know it's so small. I am very fit and don't want to lose my abs to fit into a dress. I'd rather find a new dream dress than get skinnyfat and unhealthy again.
Serious request, I have not seen another dress that is as regal. I am not looking for MM classic, I want an OTT queen like dress
Probably more will be going up for sale because I saw two (one white, one purple) on LM that was part the oddment packs. They couldn't have been the only one to get it in their packs and decide to sell it.
I fit baby normally quite well, it's just my freaking dream dress that is 68cm.
I don't really like MM anymore, I like some old j et j that is more princessey. Please help me find a dream dress with some back shirring lol
Every time I find a dream dress it's slightly too small and I don't want to spend 700$ to look like shit and stretch out seams. I have a decent size wardrobe but nothing really special yet
Deats on this dress? Sorry I can't find it anywhere.
This but NOT DAMAGED in any colorway. I don't really need accessories, I would be happy with any cut/color if good condition
My dreams are dead.
I haven't seen this anywhere. I'd honestly take any cut/color, but this is my favorite cut.
I can never seem to find this exact cut and color.
Honestly I don't think 62-65 is all that small. Those measurements are fairly commonplace among young women in East Asia. Going well over 70 seems more surprising to me considering lolita's target demographic.
>mfw 68 border-fattie
After its 50th fucking re-release I feel less inclined to buy the Rose Prayer Surface Spell dress..
Looking for March of Duck though, either Skirt or UNSHIRRED JSK.. colors not a big issue..
I'm not sure if this is OT or not, but it's like... My dream bag. It's the creepiest damn thing I've ever seen. I need it. Has anyone ever even seen this up for sale?
I wonder how much of that is a more recent development though. A lot of the older pieces brand put out were considerably less forgiving than what we have now.
For something on-topic: MM needs to stop being a cocktease and just ship my Antoinette already. It's so close I can almost feel the ruffles ugh.
I think it's always been a bit more forgiving - unshirred brand from a decade ago is obviously smaller than recent releases, but quarter/half/full shirring dresses have been around from pretty early, and are clearly designed to cater to a larger sizing range. Even with older shirred pieces they certainly go up to what would be considered large for a young woman in Japan (talking over 70cm waist and 88cm bust, which is fairly large on a petite 5' 2" frame which is average height there)
I'd kill for this dress. Never seen it anywhere--the OP is ugly and a balls-ton of $$$ and the skirt has no oomph to it.
Speaking of vaguely creepy novelty dream bags, I'd kill for a Fujuku Dolls animal purse.
It kills me. Kind of reminds me of the weird animation in Madoka Magica with witches. The bag has the same weird aesthetic as those scenes. I also just noticed it has six fucking fingers. I think it would look really cool for creepy coords, or even guro.
That's creepy af too. I don't think I would go out of my way to buy it, but I'd love to see someone incorporate it in a coord.
I have to agree. My older OTT sweet dresses fit me like... if I was 1in bigger all around it would be uncomfortable. Even the ones with partial shirring, it's more like the proportions are just tiny? But I am mainly speaking for AP.
Looking for the Katrina headbow, preferrably first release and mint only
But shirred pieces weren't super common back then? Sometimes they would be released but they weren't in every release which they would have to be for older brand to be "forgiving". Shirring isn't supposed to be stretched out a lot either. Maybe you're confused because Meta used to make huge pieces, often without shirring. I had to sell an OP because it literally would fall off me at 90cm bust and 72cm waist. It's weird though because around the same time they made 60cm skirts.
Somebody was looking for this in teal in the old DD thread, if you're willing to settle for black: http://page23.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/o117525019
M-maybe Atelier Pierrot will re-release it...
Would anybody be so kind as to name the blouse she's wearing? All I know is that it's from Moi Meme Moitie, and I haven't had any luck looking around. It's not even on Lolibrary, so I guess this is going to become another dream item for me.
Unless it's something very specific having the name of it won't do jack shit for you because you won't be able to find it listed under that name.
Also unrelated that jsk neckline is horrible with that type of blouse. I know she wanted to wear it because of the shoulders but this would look so much better with a jabot.
I figured it might not have a specific name, but I'd at least like to know what Moitie called it so maybe I can have an easier time trying to find a a picture of the blouse itself for reference.
I'm also not the biggest fan of her coord either, the shoes and wig are throwing me off more than anything.
My mom offered to buy me my dream dress as a birthday present I am screaming someone hold me. Pic related!!!
>She said she found it for a nice price too.
enjoy your oo jia replica
Looking to buy ETC's Chocolatier print in ivory and/or Meta's Fairy Tale Frill Pinafore JSK in lavender. I will consider the other JSK cut of Fairy Tale as well.
I've had bad luck with Fairy Tale. I miss it every time I see it. The worst is when I missed it for 10,000 yen on auctions. There is one up for 33,000 yen on mbok rn. It's my ultimate dream dress, but I'm not willing to go that high...
Searching for baroque is up in pink on LM for anyone interested !
Specifically these two colorways, might consider the other cut but this cut is most preferred.
Of course when I was out of town and unable to access my laptop, it shows up and is sold. A sad day.
Any cut of this print but only the black colourway. I might go for ivory if I saw it at a price I like but I wouldn't be willing to shell out for it.
are there anons still lusting for Ruins Cathedral?
I was in a Bremen Town Musician's play when I was a tiny child, so this dress has a soft spot in my heart. I need the size 2 version unfortunately.
> Would buy if not broke or too fat
Only their much older stuff, though? I can't think of a VM dress I've seen in the past 5 years or so that had under 68 max waist and most even then are 70-72. I have 2 JSK's from 2001 and 2004 respectively that are 68cm waist but nothing smaller than that.
Skirts yeah, but not dresses. For whatever reason skirts always seem to have the tiniest waists of all releases in every brand, like under 60cm minimums and barely any stretch, which I'll never understand (looking at you, IW). IDK about MM's sizing, though as I haven't owned anything from them.
looking for men's size vest and pants for AatP's Cock Robin, preferably in black. i have found ties in other colorways and am focusing on the main pieces.
There was an anon looking for Antique Book. There's a black short version on LM now if you're interested!
The ride never ends.
I'm sure someone was looking for this, MM Therese Jsk for sale on usagiyouhinten: http://usagiyouhinten.ocnk.net/product/16077
Oh man it dropped the pic that's so embarrassing.
>tfw I'm spending time with the bf this weekend and went out and did fun things instead of being a hermit and refreshing secondhand sites online every 5 seconds
>tfw that's when I miss this
A-at least I didn't spend money I shouldn't have?
My ultimate wish list is way too long.... This is just my most wanted dresses atm.
I think about JM Royal Stripe so much. So gutted that I didn't get it when I had the chance.
I'd buy this in a heartbeat if I wouldn't feel so guilty about the satanic imagery ;_;
I've collected most of the lolita dresses I want. Now it's time to conquer otome!
DREAM BLOUSE, please please help me. I got my dream dress and now need a nice hime sleeve blouse. I have been searching all over Rakuten and LM and can't find it in Ivory in stock. AP's Romantic Sweet Lacy
Only dream dress left. I wonder if I should hope for a rerelease...
Keep exercising. I don't know how long you've been doing it, but your muscles will swell up for a little while before they tighten back down. You'll get bigger before you get smaller, you just have to stay consistent and make sure you don't become discouraged by the temporary change.
Best of luck to you!
Thankyou for thinking of me! I'd be down on that shit asap but there is no headbow! I dont really care about the socks but i want the headbow!
>missed out on the op so many times I'd be interested in the black mini jsk as well. Even the original set wasnt this hard to track down
The Baby JSK was up for sale but the listing ended and it has yet to be relisted. Hoping it gets put up again.
Looking for this Infanta Tea Party Chiffon OP in Brown, XL.
Bought Grazia Crown a couple of days ago because I was sad after being told that some girls from my old comm are being salty cunts about me for leaving. Now I own all my dream dresses and honestly it helps.
I've been hunting for this dress for literal years. I missed an auction for it this time last year and have not seen it back to auction since.
The worst part was it sold for like 7,000yen and I'd gladly have paid three times that.
I'm not that much of a skirt person, and it wouldn't fit me, but thanks for offering! I hope you find yours soon! If I ever chance upon the black one, I'll remember to post it here. Good luck anon!
Oh yeah..... Chibi Tenshi's managed to snag me the new re-release of my dream Boz nun dress, in my preferred length and colour, which sold out pretty much immediately.
It lacks the buttons running up all of the way up the sleeves, and the side lacing from one release, but it's close enough.
Thanks! I hate most nun dresses, aside for thsi one and the sleeveless, front button-down one from Boz as well that I nabbed on YJA earlier this year. Main dream dress set complete for now.
Pictured is the one I already have, which led to me wanting the one I've just acquired.
I'm very happy for you and would love to see you wear it. I've been eyeing it too but didn't want to make the investment right now. Also deciding on a colorway and length is so hard. Probably would have gone for long/black too.
Thanks. :The long black x black is sold out now, with the webstore only having the bordeux x black left, but all colours are left on the short version. I was really lucky to get this, as initially when CT tried to get it instore, it had sold out straight away. But not wanting to make the investment atm is perfectly reasonable a reason to not go for it. I hope you manage to get one at some point in the future.
I'm considering selling the wine x gold jsk + headbow because I haven't really worn it, summer Christmas down under and all that jazz. Despite that, I'm pretty torn about selling and would much rather keep it if I don't get a good price. Currently I'm thinking $520 + shipping as looking at lacemarket and comm-sales, the skirt went for $400 and the JSK alone for $480. Fair warning: international shipping is a bitch, and I'm not sending it untracked or marked down.
so mad I couldn't get this into my cart before it sold out ;_; Now I'll never find it
I need to browse and find more dream dresses.
Will do. My only hope is that the waist isn't super teeny-tiny, as the bust is only 84cm. I have friends who have one of the older versions of this piece, and they love it.
My sleeveless one I never expected to see come up on the second hand market, then randomly chanced upon it reasonably cheaply with a BN price, so I sprang on it. No regrets.
Misty Sky is sold out
All I have left are misty eyes
Dream dress #1 'cause I'm new.
Anyone know where I can find it?
Okay. So. You're going to have to look secondhand, which is where most people find their dream dresses. This is why this thread is filled with links to auction sites and consignment stores. Furthermore, you will probably have to pay scalper prices for Misty Sky, and I'm pretty sure the OP is the most popular. I'd say prepare to pay between 600-1000 for it.
Most consignment stores you can buy from directly. I've seen Misty Sky pop up on some of them, so you just kind of have to check regularly for updates. Here is a list of stores:
Another option you have is the international secondhand market. Lacemarket is much more popular now, but I would also consider checking EGL Sales Comm on LJ as well as Lolita Sales in English on FB. You can make Want To Buy posts on the latter two sites.
Lastly, auctions. Yahoo! Japan Auctions and Mbok are auction sites you can bid on using a shopping service. I use From Japan, and there's others such as Japonica, or real-life people like Chibi_tenshi that will bid for you. Since you're looking for Misty Sky, that's a popular print that you will find easily. Just use "misty sky" or "angelic pretty" as search terms. If you win a bid it will be sent to your shopping service domestically, and they will send it to you.
Hope that helps. Good luck, you'll need it.
Whoops meant to link to >>8691145
Also if you have the money right now, there's a bidding war going on for this OP right now: http://www.mbok.jp/item/item_475679219.html?_SRC=li_i0
There's only five hours left, though, so it's a toss-up whether you could get a bid in in time.
There's also the JSK here if you're willing to go for a different cut: http://www.mbok.jp/item/item_475882786.html?_SRC=li_i0
dream print. this cut and color only. I saw the drop waist JSK pop up on auctions, but don't want to settle.
I just saw this, and I definitely need to have it someday. I just bought another dream dress, and this would go nicely with the blackish green underdress I'm waiting on.
There was an elodie doll anon floating around sometime in the last threads. If you're still there, there's one in burgundy with the sash on CC.
I suffer more than most with my dream dress being what it is. not even knowing if it will ever be up for sale hurts my dreams but its so beautiful...
Curse you Rouge Aerie.
um you fuck off with your 100% wrong opinions don't you know what thread this is. I would consider losing weight for some of my dream dresses
note they said SOME not MOST.
and "some" is still a significant amount, and even includes older AP/Baby/IW.
hell, even Puppet Circus (a notable dream dress for many) has a 68 cm waist with no shirring.
>check flea market apps daily
>one day busy, don't check flea market apps

>rose basket in red on mercari
>but reserved for someone else
>they had first commented asking for it to be held about 7 hours before
>sold for 20000 yen
I've hardly seen it for sale, if ever... will it ever appear again....?
Yes, that was me. It says it is sold out on that link? I wouldn't mind navy if anyone has seen it. I keep seeing damaged olive dresses which I wouldn't mind buying if they were in better condition. But the red is my dream
Did anyone order baby's pastoral in the green grass in green or navy? Either jsk. They're both sold out on both us and jp and I hate the other colorways
This is my new dream, I'm hoping I start seeing them come up for sale
Was totally broke during the release period, I love this so much and it's no where to be seen yet
>hoped someone would hate theirs and instantly sell it
Anon who wanted this, I found you the set (with bonnet) but it's retail price/ slightly over so not that cheap. I can't remember your name so I can't pm you but drop me a message when you see this and I'll link you. (I've been looking for the damn thing for ages as well but I'm a cheapo)
>tfw I got the caplet and bonnet too
I hear ya, that black beats the pink all the way. I wish I would have got it, had the money and all, but didn't find out about the reservation until it was already over. Now I will forever weep without it.
Cat lady anons, where you at? I swear someone wanted the IW cat print, but I can't remember what colour...
