Sorry, I privated my Pinterest because a lot of people don't like their photos being shared to another platform (although I think old street snaps are fair game) and I mostly just use it for personal inspiration. Also, I divide my board by color rather than style so there's a lot of non-oldschool stuff in there too.

Anyone happen to have some snaps of old school coords in lavender/purple? I know it's not a very common color but I'd love to see some if they exist

It was literally MTO on Baby's website a month ago, and the JSK version came up last summer. You'll get your chance, anon

I got my first old school piece today anons, is this what love feels like? The fabric and lace are so high quality and thick

The blouse and jsk I think are both from around 2005! They’re both cornet, and the dress is velvet which is one of my favorite things, so I’m really looking forward to it

Not this colorway, unfortunately

I agree that printed tights together with socks rarely look good, but I often wear sheer tights with OTKs and UTKs. In my experience it makes the socks less prone to sliding down.

Does anyone know roughly how many cornet made of each item? I don’t think I’ve ever seen the exact same piece more than once (except for a few exceptions)
>>
>>10619808
does it matter?
>>
>>10619812
Not really, I’m just interested in the history of the brand?

>>10619815
Your best bet would be to try and find the designer's blog. It's probably cached somewhere.

Actually cute cornet gets snatched up quick and is well known to be rare larper chan

I got this really cheap bodyline skirt, it's so cute!! Idk what it is but I feel like it doesn't even look like bodyline if you take the front bow of

When will the trend be over... I want cheap stuff again.....

any taobao brands?

>>10620050
Well anything cute will go fast, especially if priced accordingly. But it does come up on the JP second hand market, and not only once in a blue moon, especially if you don't forget to add their pre- and post-Cornet brand names to your search query. Knowing a bit of Japanese helps, too.
>>
>>10620596
Yes I know how to use mercari and fril I just never see any pieces that are actually cute or what I want there

I have a dress kinda like this from meta that I can't find on lolibrary. It is from meta, all organdy. It has buttons down the front and full shirring on the bust/back. The sleeves are similar to this, only all organdy. It came with an underdress of cotton with the same lace on the dress along the bottom of it. I always wonder what the date of the dress might be, or anything about it. Only time I have seen it in a picture/on another lolita is on cryptcasper.

I have had this dress for many many years and still know nothing about it.

Taobao is shit just buy actual old school. It's cheaper and much higher quality anyway.
>>
>>10622100
I agree with this anon
>>
>>10622100
This, honestly I think if you want to go old school you should buy real old school or make the pieces yourself
>>
Has anyone else seen the instagram account that’s posting old school inspo, old school bible? They popped up pretty recently, but they really seem like someone who’s just hopped on the old school trend. I was reading through their posts and they hadn’t heard of cornet? And you claim to be an old school lolita...
>>
>>10623066
Everyone post-2013 hopped on the old school trend.
>>
>>10623068
the trend started in 2016 tho
>>
>>10623066
Cornet wasn't even that popular 15 years ago. They had a reputation of (relatively) cheap sturdy dresses that were nicely constructed and easy to wash, something you'd be okay to wear to a concert in a club without worrying too much about destroying it.
>>
>>10623066
which account?
>>
>>10623073
God, thank you for posting this. I was so fucking confused when I saw this sudden surge in love for this brand and the extreme levels of overpricing as of late that I was genuinely starting to wonder if I had remembered its overall "eh it's fine"-ness wrong.
>>
>>10623368
I feel like it's on the same level as brands like chocochip
>>
>>10623072
Nah, it already began in 2013 with anons making more threads about it, starting to not see it as ita anymore and Ophilia beginning to get a good chunk of asspats on Cof, paving the way of attention and likes for the other flakes.
>>
>>10623368
Ayrt here. I understand Cornet is rare these days cause they didn't make too many pieces to begin with. I also understand why some people might be willing to pay more for it because of rarity and sentimental reasons. What I don't understand is why it's suddenly so coveted. Don't get me wrong, Cornet is very nicely made, but so is AP or Baby or Moitie from 00s. And a lot of older dresses from major brands tend to have similar design and cuts, so I doubt many people like Cornet specifically because of their design choices. I don't get it. It wasn't even that popular in Japan either.
>>
>>10623774
Cornet is newbie hype. I kind of took some interest in old school, recently but much of this is really just sweet lolita before OTT redefined what sweet lolita was and Cornet was never popular. So I still feel mixed about it.
>>
>>10623774
I don’t get it either. I was a cornet whore before it started going for $$$ on lacemarket. but that was because it’s a dead brand, very casual for lolita and i also wanted to ‘save’ it. Maybe i helped contribute to rising prices since people saw that it’s being bought lol

I’m in the minority that i love their design choices. I like simpler things but with a little bit of lace
>>
Wonder what some of my cornet would sell for. One of my favorite pieces is a velvet heart apron skirt. So cute and made so well imo. The buttons are actually shell (abalone maybe idk) and it is honestly one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe. I bet newbies would be all over it, but I am not sure I could ever part with it.
>>
Dumbass question, what years are considered old school? Or is it just a look?
>>
>>10623797
Yes, I love their designs too, especially their (over)use of broderie anglaise/eyelet lace. It’s my favorite type of lace, don’t see it enough
>>
>>10623073
AYRT here. I didn’t mean that they were the best/most popular brand back then, but more the fact that you’d have only have to read through a few old GLBs to see the brand, so never having heard of them and yet calling yourself an old-school lolita seems a little strange
>>
>>10623840
90’s to early 2000’s, most often i see people saying the cutoff is 2005~2008, at a stretch 2010
>>
>>10623840
it's the aesthetic of early 2000s lolita
>>
>>10623840
Pre-2006 but mostly based on looks from GLB, rather than what western lolitas actually wore.

Most of the time (if not all of the time, but I’d have to check that) their items were featured in GLBs under the name Shotgun Wedding. Which is why someone who reads old GLBs is actually more likely to have never heard of Cornet.
>>
>>10624007
i remember them actually. there is a sewing pattern in one of them for their brand i believe. a white OP possibly?
>>
>>10624007
This answers one of my questions actually. I have seen cornet items listed with ‘shotgun wedding’ tag and never understood it. Sounds like it was an old name before they went to cornet?
I’ll have to actually get my hands on glb someday, been lazy about tracking it down.
Cornet also had a ‘ glück wünschen garaus’ tag once. i still don’t understand that one.

Do you maybe know which glb it was?

This is how I feel too anon, at least it still goes pretty cheap on the Japanese market.
>>
>>10624016
Shotgun Wedding was their brand name. Cornet was the company name. I remember their website had "Shotgun Wedding by Cornet" in the title.
>>10624010
AYRT. I couldn't find it, but my GLB collection is incomplete so I would appreciate it if you could point me to where you saw the pattern.
>>10624016
Garaus was their brand name around the 90s.

I’ve had some cornet and while the quality was nice it was ridiculously short. I’m not tall, maybe 160 cm. Oldschool Baby is slightly nicer and a better length for me
>>
>>10623774
I'm glad I got a good amount of cornet a couple years ago before the surge. Their pieces are fairly popular among Chinese lolitas, actually, which is a big part of it. It's also just a lot cheaper and easier to get their velveteen pieces than brand velveteen ones.
>>
>>10624469
I have a cornet dress coming in the post, should arrive tomorrow. However, I am also 172cm. Pray for me
>>
>>10624469
The fact that it's so short is what makes me love Cornet. I absolutely hate when a dress hits below the knee, makes me look dumpy, so Cornet is perfect.
>>
How do you gulls keep your velveteen pieces from attracting lint and dog hair? Or do you just constantly lint roll them?
>>
>>10624996
I do not recommend lint rolling older velveteen pieces too often. If you do, be sure to not press to hard. A gentle clothes brush is preferable.
>>
>>10624949 I'm 177cm and my cornet is definitely very short on me but I like it because I'm a thotlita. Embrace the thigh, nonny

>>
>>10625426
Idk it seems fine? Her coords are pretty cute and I don't get any cringe trying too hard to be youthful and kawaii vibes from her which I tend to get from a lot of lolitas with mature faces.
>>
>>10625490
Yeah I agree, I don't see any problem in it
>>
>>10625490
yeah i quite like the coord, but something about the very round shaped bottom lip and less pigmented top lip just looks very odd to me
>>
>>10625502
>less pigmented top lip
her top lip looks like it's full on red and she's doing a gradient with the bottom one anon. her top lip is just hella thin cause some people have thin lips.
>>
>>10625401
this feels very neo old school
>>
>>10625655
It technically kind of is. And that's fine. It's cute. Glad BABY is at least still releasing stuff suitable for old school style.
>>
Is this a good price,?

I handwashed my old JM velvet jsk that says dry cleaning only and it went good
>>
>>10626118
Velvet can be ruined forever by washing. I actually did this to my vintage velvet dress (non lolita)
>>
>>10626122
Most lolita is velveteen and can be washed

Is MAM okay for the price? Was thinking of getting picrel for wardrobe filler but the lace looks iffy
>>
>>10627243
Wtf do you mean, that lace is beautiful.
>>
I love this wallpaper
>>
>>10627243
i have this blouse and it's wonderful! it's not the most intricate torsion lace i've seen but it doesn't look out of place in my wardrobe by any means.
>>
>>10627243
This is lovely, do you have the CDjapan link by chance?
>>
>>10627246
>>10627265
I found different pics of it and the lace looks way better. I guess the stock image was throwing me off. Thanks.
>>10627279
https://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEOAPP-41104
>>
>>10627282
ntayrt but in my experience their stock images can be a little lacking and look cheap. one thing to remember is that machine made laces often have similar or even the same pattern but are different materials, so something that appears to be scratchy and cheap isn't always.
>>
>>10627282
Unrelated to this but the stock images are wrong for some of the Maxicimam products on cdjapan in my experience so I recommend checking that the product number matches those on Maxicimam's website when purchasing.
>>
>>10624007
>Which is why someone who reads old GLBs is actually more likely to have never heard of Cornet.
Lmao bullshit.
>>
>>10626122
>>10626118
Very gentle handwashing will be fine.
>>
>>10627290
A lot of torchon lace also may look super machined and perfect at first but after a wash the pattern and the lace itself softens a lot.
>>
>>10627332
Ayrt. If there's in fact a mention of Cornet (not Shotgun Wedding) in GLBs, I'd be glad if you pointed it out to me.
>>
are there any surviving old school brands other than Baby?
>>
>>10627472
Lurk more
>>
>>10627472
Meta
>>
>>10627472
Yeah, pretty much all of the major brands
>>
>>10627472
Most brands that were alive back then are still here now. Do you mean brands that frequently do rereleases of old pieces?
>>
>>10627482
I'm guessing that's what they meant. In that case, I'd say Maxicimam still has some oldschool-looking pieces.
>>
>>10627353
I don't own my issues anymore, but they started changing the naned brand around 2004-2005. Nevermind that reading glbs is not some super secret knowledge that prevents you from knowing cornet. Literally everyone did that when lj was still the main community.
>>
>>10627472
Visible, kek
>>
>>10627494
Basically every establised Japanese lolita brand at one point was old school/made or still makes old school style pieces. BABY's are the closest to their original stuff and MAM mostly only sells pieces that work for old school (at least the ones that look good are the solids and whatnot, their prints are lackluster) but it's pretty tough to tell the difference between the big 3 brands and most older ones if you look at their older pieces. Old school used to just be what almost all lolita looked like regardless of brand.
>>
>>10627623
most of MAM looks cheap af though.

>>
>>10618449
This has ALWAYS been a thing in the fashion. I don't understand the issue.
>>
These are dudes, right?
>>
>>10629209
It's just new people coming into the fashion, not looking at old magazines and acting like they fucking know the fashion.
>>
>>10626775
There are pictures in this thread that pre date that with the hairstyle. Obviously you weren’t around then but it is in the bibles and everything. The hair style came before the style.
Do your research before you try to preach.
>>
>>10626981
why do some japanese lolitas wear shoes that dont fit
>>
>>10629948
Nothing is more princess than shoes that don't fit.

Realistically, they are models. They are being paid to wear things, regardless of fit. They probably only had one size of the shoe they needed to model.

Bought an older (somewhat rare?) recently for nearly £400 and it came with some (imo) pretty serious undisclosed damage, seller has offered to do a partial refund how much is fair to ask back?
>>
>>10630055
Probably worth saying the piece was originally only sold for £165 and with inflation that’d be £245, I’d have been fine what I did if it was in good condition (seller said there was some yellowing due to age and loose buttons) but,,
There’s no major noticeable damage but there’s some rusty looking staining that dry cleaning didn’t get out and one of the button holes was severely damaged (frayed) which I’ve managed to get patched up but at the end of the day it’s still damaged.
Thought? It’s genuinely been stressing me out enough that’s it’s effecting my mood, and my sleeping a couple of nights, sad, I know, any advice would be appreciated
>>
Does anyone happen to know anything about or have any other pictures of this old Moitie OP? I can't find anything about it on Lolibrary.
>>
>>10630055
so is it pretty serious damage or no major noticeable damage? i think you need to solidify your own stance on what you consider acceptable/unacceptable in order to evaluate how much it's worth to you. it's possible that the seller will ask you to return it for a full refund if you can't come to an agreement, so figure out what that breakpoint is for you personally.
