Any advice on how not to look like I escaped from a mormon commune while wearing classic? I’ve been told I have a very “wholesome and midwestern” appearance, and while I look great in sweet and gothic, whenever I wear classic I just look very religious and confused
>>
>>10195828
Without an idea of how you look I’d say maybe try bigger hair/headpieces?
>>
>>10195828
Don't be cheap and invest in brand items and good accessories?
>>
>>10195886
Thanks, that actually may help a ton. If post a pic but the issue is my face and Id block that out so... yeah.

>>10195895
Thanks, but nearly everything I own is brand. That’s not really the issue.
>>
>>10195828
Wear blush? Or make up in general? Just enough to make it obvious that you are wearing make up on your face.
>>
>>10196048
I wear a lot of himekaji, so while I obviously won’t go full gal maybe it would make sense to lean a bit into that?

I'm usually not a fan of plaid but there's something about the ruggedness of plaid in contrast with the elegance of the blouse that I find extremely novel. When I saw it was plaid I thought I wouldn't be spending any more money this month. Fuck.
>>
>>10195828

Maybe take a look at how brands style their western models?

As someone with thin hair who would look like a tired greasy haired ball if I didn't style my hair, I find that giving it volume is very much key to amping my style. In addition to >>10196048, maybe also consider short falsies and more obvious eye makeup.

>>10196389
I'm highly considering that blouse for under my solid pieces, but I already bought the bordeaux JSK.

At first I was pretty sore that the JSK had no type of lace at all

But if you put the blouse and JSK together, you get a frilly piece with subtle lace

Well played VM, well played.

Buy the blouse so you can coord it with the JSK like in >>10197190. Just a low low price of $500 to fully live out your plaid dreams!

I'm both replies, and I'm seriously thinking about it.

I never knew those stock photos existed and now I'm happier they do.

Moving onto classic jewelry, does anyone have anything like Schwarz Schmetterling? I love their stuff but they seem to have only a few items in stock these days.

Anyone else love the dresses without shirring? They make me feel especially small and dainty, especially in summerwear.
>>
>>10198891
Shirring looks ugly and the bunching gets uncomfortable when it's hot. I'd much rather brands make sack dresses with waist ties/ribbons if they want to cater to larger sizes.
>>
>>10198891
aesthetically yes,they are a blessing for the eye, practically, nope. I need the shirring so my ribs can move around when breathing.

Yes, I feel like they flatter my figure while shirring makes me look "bubbly".
>>
>>10199312
This model and weird background doesn't make me want to buy it
>>
>>10198891
Unless it's a fitted dress with corset lacing no. I like how shirring helps distribute how fabric bunches up. I'm not about that constant adjusting life and unless I'm wearing a vest or corset (like Excentrique) I always feel like I have to distribute how the fabric sits, especially with a belt or waist ties.
>>
>>10199275
Big ribcage checking in. Breathing is nice, so shirring it is.

>>10198891
I like both. Whatever it takes to make the dress comfortable and well fitting.
>>
>>10198891

To be perfectly honest, I don't usually notice except I wore an ill fitting FINT dress the other day with some wonky shirring, and wow, that was an ill fitting dress. I suppose it depends on how well the shirring is in the back. I usually don't mind either I guess.

I'm really enjoying the classic revival in Japan desu
>>
I recently pre ordered the new Violet Fane dress, The Charmin Town, but I've never worn classic before, just sweet. Can anyone help in terms of how I could style it? I have a blouse from Lady Sloth ordered (the cotton crop top in ivory) and I have high heeled brown brogues and I'm thinking ivory tights. I'm unsure about the rest especially headwear.
>>
>>10208895

Coord help thread might be more helpful >>10194466, especially if you take the effort to feed them a collage or two.

Personally I'd just coord the dress sweet rather than buy a whole seperate outfit. The cut is pretty simple and the print is colourful so it looks easy to coord. For headwear you can either match it to your bag+shoes, or it shouldn't be hard to find a matching ribbon to the belt that you can whip into a hair bow or beret pin.

Did anyone else get the Afternoon Lady Blouse? I just received mine and it's really translucent. Are there any alternatives to wearing an undershirt?
>>
>>10210505
You don't need an undershirt if it's under a jsk but otherwise it's pretty necessary. I recommend Uniqlo airism, most Japanese girls wear them as default under every garment.
>>
>>10199275
Big ribcage, wide shoulders and very long legs here. I look like an ageplayer in sack dresses and to this day have never found a dress without shirring that fit my back, so no thanks. But I do agree there's an elegance to a nice fitted dress. One day I will find a solid piece I can alter,even if it will lower resale value.
>>
>>10210509
I see. Thanks for the rec!

Seconding the Airism recommendation.
I’ve been buying a lot from Uniqlo ever since they opened stores in my city.
Their Heattech stuff is nice for winter too

Apparently linen shirts are meant to look wrinkled. Something something looks lived in, adds to the charm or something.

>>10218925
I swear ever since Victorian Maiden pulled through I’ve been buying from every release, i got that same energy for Mary Magdalene
>>
>>10218928

You're a better person than me, anon. I couldn't quite see how that last Sailor OP could fit in my wardrobe so I abstained. I did buy $500 worth of plaid though, so stay tuned for that glory come fall.

My somewhat major regret is that I didn't buy any of the Merry Lou OPs from MM when they did the release. I should have gone for the green.

I really hope they're ok.
>>
>>10218928
There’s one accessory still in stock on the website, buy it
>>
>>10218923
It means that they couldn't produce the orders. It probably means they're dying.
>>
>>10218925
I would love to see MM do a fund like VM did. One last hurrah.
>>
>>10218916
Well this is sad.
>>
>>10218916
Not only are they refunding, they're adding more cash back as an apology. I really hope it doesn't bankrupt them. Who knows how many orders they got.

They probably need to release a tea length petticoat if they insist on tea length releases though. The combination of a dress with no lining with a regular petticoat makes for some major lampshade.

This is so sad, what a gut punch it must be for them. I really hope they can sort out a new production line. I really love MM and it breaks my heart that this has happened to them, it must be so dispiriting.
