A perennial classic; Shirring Princess outfits

As my regular readers know, I recently got my hands on a JSK I consider one of the quintessentially recognisable lolita pieces; Shirring Princess by Baby, the Stars Shine Bright in the black x white colourway.

The lace in particular is something I adore on this dress...just look at it! The dress overall also has a balance between casual and dressy that I like; the materials and construction and fairly simple, but the bustle back and layers of lace mean it could also be rather elegant if coordinated right.

And, speaking of coordinating this JSK...

First up, I put together something that immediately made me fall head over heels in love. How cute is this? I honestly am so keen to wear this sometime, it's just so me! I really don't have more to say.

Next, I wanted to try bringing in some colour, and decided on pink with hints of red. I feel this really needs a pink and red belt to tie the colours in better, or alternatively instead of a pink blouse, a pink bolero. However, given that I don't own any of those items I did what I could and even though I'm not 100% happy with the outcome I enjoyed stretching myself a bit with this.

Lastly, I ran with something of an updated old-school look; same items as a stereotypical old school look, same colour scheme but some slight differences such as a the blouse being chiffon and the headwear being a lacemonster bow rather than a rectangle headdress.

Do you have a piece in your lolita wardrobe that you consider to be a lolita classic?


  1. Oh. I have one of those babydoll maxidresses, princess three stage tiered jsk.
    Perfect for summer.

  2. Oh my gosh! I love that jsk, shirring princess. Less definitely is more, the shirring on it is so cute! Reminds me of old school lolita. Nice post.

  3. Oh wow, I love the first look, it's casual yet cute, totally wearable just round the town. I keep seeing Shirring Princess a lot, but I feel like even though we see it so often, it's not the same every time. I want to spend some time on Lolibrary once just looking through the various rereleases of it. I think there's a Shirring Princess for everyone and who knows, maybe there's one out there for me too. :)

    1. Thanks! I love that look so, so much!

      Haha if you find one that you love we should cyber-twin ^__^

  4. I love it paired with the stripe top and otks!!! Adorable
