This post is mostly for me to drool over Baby's newish item in reserve, Masquerade Theater. This new series is a subtly Phantom of the Opera themed, the print is filled with swinging chandeliers, sheet music, and candelabras.
This print comes in a few releases, an OP, which have been seen less and less at Baby, a JSK, a skirt, as well as a headbow and a bonnet. Let's have a look at some of these!
The OP is drop dead gorgeous, especially in red. The style of the dress is one of Baby's classic Rococo inspired pieces. The sleeves and ruffles are made of chiffon, adding even more decadence to this dress than the bold gold print and Rococo design already bring!
Sadly, the JSK version of this print is very lacking for me. The front bustle is such a perfect detail, it's a real shame they didn't add it to the JSK. I am also not a fan of the extra wide lace along the neckline, and the tiny straps just aren't doing it for me.
The matching bonnet is gorgeous, and would be the perfect addition to either piece in this print, but I am especially loving it paired with the OP, it's just so over the top decadent! The blog, Make Lovely, recently posted a coordinate with the bonnet and the OP, which was where I first saw this gorgeous print! Sadly, I just spent my Lolita funds on a different Baby dress! But maybe I'll have to do another closet cleanout to raise some funds for this OP!
I love it ^^ its so pretty and elegant! I like that musical so much, the songs, the clothes everything ejejeReplyDelete
Sometimes I get sick of brand and say I'm never going to wear it again. I tell myself how much money I'll save and how much more creativity I'll be using if I don't wear brand. And then BABY does something like this to me and I take it ALL BACK.ReplyDelete
I love the rococo styled pieces as long as the print (if there is one) isn't overwhelming. I absolutely love the red x gold colour pairing. Not a huge fan of bonnets, but if I were ever to have money for brand, the OP would be on my wish list.ReplyDelete
Omg I love the 2nd to last dress for BSSB it so fresh and pretty ^^ReplyDelete
I want it T_T
I tell myself that too! "No more brand! Commissions of your own designs from now on :<" then I forget about that completely because I really love BtSSB prints.ReplyDelete
That OP is already on my wishlist! I'm kind of kicking myself for not placing a preorder. I keep telling myself "Well, it's probably just not going to fit or something" to make me feel better XDReplyDelete
I've actually never seen the musical : O I'm only vaguely familiar with it, ssshhhh.ReplyDelete
The JSK? I looove that colorway, but I just can't get into that design!ReplyDelete
The OP is indeed lovely!ReplyDelete
Not really my style - but hey, the bonnet looks really beautiful! ^_^ReplyDelete
Recomment: Thanks for your interest for a candy swap. We have so many diffrent flavor, theme and style from haribo here in Germany! I can't list it even up, so many! :D
I'm completely in love with this OP, either in red or ivory! But I hadn't realized it's Phantom of the Opera inspired! O: That just adds to the wonderful outcome! ^w^ReplyDelete
It's one of my favorite OPs from BABY =) I'd die to have it!!
Omg I want that, I've never ordered brand before though, it doesn't seem to be on the reserve page anymore, is it on the regular site yet?ReplyDelete
Yep! It's on the regular site now, in the Alice & The Pirates section http://www.babyssb.co.jp/shopping/pirates/index.html Ordering from Baby is really easy, you just have to email them, check out this page for how to orderReplyDelete
XD I'm really tempted to get it for myself! I just love the print!
I looooooove that bonnet! I'm usually not a bonnet person, but, the huge stiff ones always get me. So elegant.ReplyDelete
