This morning I sold my Noble du chat skirt, as it was too large and I’m not fond of the waist band (or lack thereof), although the print is absolutely darling. I did manage to take a coordinate photo of the skirt to show the details a few days before listing it for sale. The combination of leggings and trainers makes this coordinate a bit a-typical for lolita standards, but it’s my style so a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. I picked up the hat for super cheap from Fururun, and I pretty much wear my Axes Femme bolero shawls everyday, they add a nice refined detail to my summer house dresses. While I think this coordinate would have looked best without the bolero shawl, the blouse is chiffon and quite see through and until I manage to get some nice camisoles to wear underneath it, I won’t be wearing this blouse without a bit of covering up.
When I first tried to wear this skirt casually with my Axes Femme tops, that is when I realized I was not fond of the gathered invisible waistband style. Without pleats it just looks like a rumbled mess. It has to be neatly covered somehow, otherwise it creates a very unflattering line.
