Lace Gloves in Lolita

From Victorian Maiden

In coordinating for your lolita outfits, lace gloves can be a lovely addition. Especially for a classic or Victorian inspired outfit. They give a touch of sophistication, and a nostalgic impression of times when ladies wore gloves to keep their precious hands soft and clean. Victorian Maiden has a pair of gloves I've been lusting over. They have been in all of their ads and for good reason, they're beautiful!

Lace gloves can be procured in many other places though. They are gaining popularity among the main brands, even angelic pretty has come out with some cute lace gloves.  Crocheted gloves are also beautiful, and would be lovely to make for those who have that talent. One could also go thrift shopping, or to craft sites like to find some at a bargain price! These look almost identical to Victorian Maiden's and are less pricey.

I have a nice pair of vintage gloves from my great grandmother, and I can't wait to wear them <3

Though when choosing lace gloves, it would probably be best to avoid those that are long and fingerless. Unless of course, you want to look "like a virgin" (and by that I mean 80s Madonna)

New AATP Prints Twilight Circus

Alice and the Pirates has been coming out with a lot of fun prints lately. But it seems to me there trying to think a little to outside the box, with the new Twilight Circus. I really dislike it....Of course this is coming from someone who hated Vampire Requiem, and views it as an extremely overrated homage to Tuxedo Mask.
Cannot Unsee Can You?
Anyway enough about that ridiculously scalped print, and onto Twilight Circus

Post traumatic stress Baton twirling incident memories are flooding back aren't they?
The top and the bottom clash to much, it looks to much like separates. I know some people like dichotomy in fashion but this is reading wayyyy to weird shirley temple baton twirler. That and the skirt is really tacky. It looks like depressing, vintage wallpaper. The kind that kept little 1950's children up scared at night.

The accessories, and blouse are just as awful. Especially the top, I hate asymmetrical ties.

Beret meets ugly grandma pillow

So what do you think of Twilight Circus? Am I totally off base and majorettes are going to be the next hot thing?
