Hello my sweet fairies~
Today's review is quite overdue, but better late than never!
Several months ago I was contacted by the website DevilInspired, which is a taobao reseller for a lot of taobao lolita brands such as Infanta, Magic Tea Party, and some smaller brands too!
They had recently created a new "Kawaii Dailywear" section, and asked me if I wanted to review something from it! Naturally I said yes, who could resist such cute dresses?
So today's review will be partially a review of the dress I got, and partially of DevilInspired itself~
So, let's begin!
The dress I chose was the Double-Layer Puff Sleeve OP by the brand Vcastle, which is a brand I had never heard of before! They have a lot of really cute designs though, so I suggest you check them out! ^^
I fell in love with this literal sweet-lolita dress, because as you can see, it has sweets on it!
This dress costs $68 USD, and comes in sizes S, M, and L. It has detachable waist ties, as well as a bow that you can put on the collar, or wherever you'd like <3
This dress got to me amazingly quickly (in like three days or so), which was fantastic! However, I'm not sure if shipping is always this fast, or if it was expedited for me because I was doing the review ^^ Regardless, I was very happy to receive my dress so soon!
Just another small note:
DevilInspired carries a lot of different brands, which all have different processing times! Luckily, on the page of the item you want it will state how long the processing time is, so you know approximately when to expect your item ^^ Some brands have processing times of up to 60 days, so please look carefully if you need a dress quickly for some event!!
Anyways, on-to the dress!
My dress arrived looking exactly like the photo!
The pink is a really pretty sort of muted shade of light pink, which I think is so beautiful and fairy-like! The candy design is a dusty lilac color, so although it's a sweet lolita dress, the colors aren't too vibrant and overpowering.
I thought the Vcastle tag was really cute as well~
(I love it when brands have cute tags!)
The dress is made of a really nice chiffon-like material, and I was surprised to find that it was lined with cotton! The lace on the dress is also super soft, and of very nice quality! I really don't like when laces are of poor quality, so in my opinion this dress is really nicely made <3
There's a zipper on the back and although there is no shirring, there are waist-ties if you would like to make the dress tighter.
As mentioned before (and as evident in the product name), there are two layers-- the upper chiffon layer, and the bottom layer, which has the cotton lining, a small strip of the chiffon candy fabric, and lace. Because of the nice quality fabrics and the layering, it feels like a very high quality dress!
The dress is super comfortable, and I feel like it goes well with a variety of outfits! You can wear it more casually with just a cardigan over-top of it, or you can dress it up with lots of accessories and fluffy petticoats <3
Here are two looks that I put together with it!

Overall, I think this is a beautiful dress! It's also very reasonably priced for a lolita dress, so I think it's fantastic for those of you who want to try lolita, but who are intimidated by the high prices! Just a quick warning though, I did find it to be on the shorter side of the lolita dress spectrum, and I'm 5'4, so I think that if you're on the tall side, this might be too short to wear as a 'proper' lolita dress ^^" (although it's not too short at all to just wear casually!)
In regards to DevilInspired itself, I had a great experience! The customer service is wonderful-- I talked with Mary through emails, and she always replied quickly and was very sweet ^^
DevilInspired has many cute dresses, and a variety of lolita styles! They also have a section for retro fashion, and kawaii dailywear~ If you find anything you love, you can use my coupon code "milk" for 11% off your order!
Thank you so much for reading, I hope you found this review! I really recommend DevilInspired, and this dress too! I hope you're able to find something you love from them <3
I'll see you in my next post!
