Once again, I couldn't resist ordering from my-lolita-dress.com...
But I have an excuse this time!
I was browsing around the site a little while ago when I stumbled upon a stained glass dress. Now, I've been wanting a stained glass dress for ages, ever since I saw Haenuli's (I think that's how you spell their name...) stained glass series. The dress was from a company I had never heard of before- "Neverland". However, the dress looked gorgeous, and it was half as expensive as Haenuli's design (and a bit more interesting), so I went for it! I also ordered a 'peacock green' blouse from Infanta which I hoped would match the dress. It didn't, but that's okay because both are still fantastic.
I did an unboxing and I thought I'd write a review as well, since I haven't seen any reviews for the "Neverland" shop.
Firstly, the unboxing video! Sorry that I look like a derp, it was right after a big exam in school (which wasn't fun).

I'll just show photos and explain along the way.

And now what I think is the most interesting part: the print!
I think the print is super interesting- although it seems quite religious. I had many people telling me that they felt like they were in a church when they looked at my dress xD The print isn't perfect (it's not perfectly crisp), but you can't even tell that on photos, so it's alright~

I forgot to take a photo of it, but the dress is also lined! So it feels very soft against the skin~ Overall the dress is super comfy- it doesn't squish me to death like some of my other dresses do, so that's a plus :3
And now, photos!
I decided to do a gothic style coord with this dress, and I like it quite a bit considering that it's my first try at gothic lolita.

Infanta Swan Lake Blouse
Whenever I wear this blouse I feel like a pirate renaissance painter princess, which is fabulous~
One of the things I love about this dress is the collar. The lace on it is really nice and soft and not at all scratchy, which is a huge plus. The lace actually lining the collar isn't stiff, which is nice. The buttons are heart shaped, which I didn't notice originally. I think I might replace them- while they are cute, they don't really fit my aesthetic. Maybe I'll replace them with brass buttons- I think that would look pretty.
My favorite part of this blouse has to be the sleeves- they're so puffy! They're the tiniest bit too short, but it's really not noticeable. The poof starts 1/4 of the way down your arm, which has a really cool effect (and thus keeps you from looking broad shouldered). I also really like the cuff of the sleeve. The lace is different from the lace on the collar, which I think is a cute touch.
The material of this blouse is so soft. As I mentioned in the video (if you watched the video), it's chiffonish, but at the same time it's not see-through, which is a huge plus. The fabric is wonderful for the summer- I wore it today and wasn't at all too hot in it. The problem with cotton blouses in my opinion is that they can be a bit uncomfy in the summer- this is really nice on the other hand.
Regarding the fit of the blouse: be sure to measure carefully! There's hardly any stretch to this, and the measurements I find are quite exact. This fits me well- I was mostly measuring so that the sleeve length would be fine, since I have long arms, but if you have a bit bust for example, I suggest you measure it and chose the site accordingly.
Overall I'm super happy with all of my purchases! I'm wearing the JSK to a meet-up (my first meet-up!) this Sunday. We'll be going to an art museum, so I feel it won't be too out of place there~ The blouse I also love a ton <3
Anyways, thank you for reading! I hope you found this post helpful.
What's a dress print that you'd like to see?
