At around 10:30 am the doorbell rang and it was the mailman holding a pink package, obviously from Angelic Pretty!
My dress was shipped in one of their shopping bags, which is surprisingly thick.
I opened it and pulled out the contents and much to my surprise, they included another bag and a sticker! (I just bought a $300 dress... they better give me something free! XD)
The dress was a little squished.
The front. I love the navy colorway! It looks like a nighttime carnival scene. The print is so vivid and bright... and it has glitter! The lace is super soft but the fabric seems a little bit rougher than some of my other AP items. Still superior quality though.
The back. The buttons where the waist ties attach are shaped like stars.
The neck! 3 ways to wear; ties, collar, or nothing at all.
The apron. The bow is detachable and the stars are pockets!
Several detachable parts. I like this because you can wear the dress any number of ways.
I'm a little disappointed with the quality of the striped fabric though... it seems a bit lower quality than the rest of the dress.
The sleeves are adjustable. (Sorry for the blur.)
I discovered this opening, which I thought was just a part they had forgotten to stitch...
...But it turned out to be a pocket! Neato!
I'm pretty happy with the service from Angelic Pretty. I ordered right at the end of Golden Week, so processing was a bit slower than it probably would have been normally. But that's ok. Over all, I'm happy with the quality of the product and would definitely order from the international site again.
As I said in my last post, Milky Planet is my dream print and I'm so happy that I finally own it (although I would still like to have the first release as well.)
I was thinking about doing a post or a video comparing this dress to the replica I own, so let me know if you are interested ^^
