Cream and brown; Classical Bustle outfits

As your surely expect of me I've put together three flat-lay outfits with my newest main piece; Innocent World's Classical Bustle JSK in brown.


This JSK is really, really beautiful. It's definitely a fancier piece than I tend to buy, but it's good to have at least one dressy dress! I like how it's a bit old school, but not in a limiting kind of way. There is a lot of detail to it - the bows, the laces and or course, the bustle at the back as well as the open-style front.


First I went with a very straightforward look - more cream, brown and floral themes. Also, this is the most IW coordinate I can pull together, I even included the two-way clip that I got at the swap meet for extra IW points!


Next, I wanted to go a bit more casual, inasmuch as you can with a JSK like this. Can I just point out here that I am now even more chuffed with the new BTSSB headbow than I already was - it matches my other burgundy items! I am all for versatility, but I also love having good matching base sets, so to speak, even if I don't always use them as a set. And this headbow just elevated my burgundy base quite nicely!


For this last outfit... first of all don't ask how I managed to mess up the photo... I don't even know... what is composition?

On the coordinate itself, I thought peach was another good option, and it is. I would wear this is solid dark brown tights and beyond that I don't have much commentary on this outfit. It's certainly nice, but it doesn't quite spark my interest the way the other two do.

  1. I think the first is my favorite, even it was straight forward. The last one I would add ivory socks, like the otks in first coordinate or lacetopped ones for extra oldschool points.

    1. I love that one as well - nothing wrong with simple! And yes, those OTKS could be re-used in the last coord rather nicely.

  2. There's something really appealing about the second coord. I can't put my finger on it, but the whole thing put together is just lovely and gives this dress enough of a modern twist, whilst keeping it elegant. I'd love to try that coord on!

    1. I know! It just works oddly well.

      Lol, come to Australia and we'll meet up!

  3. I love the third coord, the peach and brown one! Maybe I'm getting old, but muted colors like that seem soft, classy, and romantic to me, and it's well balanced!

    1. I find it so wonderful that yours is the third comment on this post and with it, there's been one comment in favour of each outfit! I like them all, but I do agree with you that muted colours are pretty great.

    1. So do I! I think it really pops with burgundy, even though it's not a safe choice, exactly.
