Cakes and clocks ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ!!

 New dresses make me happppyyyyyy! 
I recently got these two in the mail and I've been swooning ever since I opened the packages. I think it's time I started to stray away from very over the top super pink sweet lolita and try some different styles and coloursヽ(o`皿′o)ノ !! 
I'm really obsessed with brown and cream at the moment and I think that these two dresses are perfect additions into my wardrobe, because they can both be made very classical or very sweet depending on what they're co-ordinated with ☆ (≧ω≦).
This first dress is Baby The Stars Shine Bright's "Merry Sweet Castle" JSK in brown with matching headbow. 
I never really liked this dress (╥_╥), but I think it's because of the black and pink colourways where the colours were really stark and contrasted with each other; I feel as though it didn't blend or sit right with the band around the bottom. But, this colourway really grew on me. 
The brown and cream really work well together with the hints of deep red and pink in the print. It's not a very chocolate brown though, it's a very red brown which makes it a little bit harder to co-ord than some of my other dresses but nevertheless I am really in love with it o(≧o≦)o.
Here is a close up of the front and print! I love the pearl and pendant detailing!

The second dress is Angelic Pretty's "Marionette Clock" OP in the Ivory colourway.
I only really bought this dress because it was on auction for $75 *and I ended up winning it at around $100 (~ ̄▽ ̄)~* and I figured it was too big of a bargain to not buy it, hahaha! But ever since I got it I've started to like it more and more because it's quite different to a lot of the prints that are popular at the moment from Angelic Pretty (ᴗ˳ᴗ) like Sugary Carnival and Milky Planet for example.
The features of the dress are very pretty. It has detachable long sleeves, a cute bow tie and lovely double breasted buttons that run down the middle leading into a very cute elongated bow. I think the black piping is an amazing detail too (✿ ♥‿♥) .
I got two new black bonnets to match as well *pictured left*! The top one is a custom made one from Oo Jia \(◕ ◡ ◕\) , and the bottom is an Anna House half bonnet. In the middle is a cute barrette from Angelic Pretty that matches my dress that the seller included in the package, and on the right is a close up of the front detailing.
I'm really happy, I can't wait for my other packages to arrive!!
