The dress cut was cute, kind of retro and classically Lolita with nothing really wacky about it. And I was intrigued by the silhouettes along the bottom. Meta doesn't show pictures of their print on their upcoming dress sketches, so I had high hopes for what this might mean. Embroidery perhaps? Metallic screen printing? I had visions of Meta's answer to Angelic Pretty's Puppet Circus dancing in my head, it would be soft blue velvet (who cares if summer is right around the corner!) with delicate silver embroidery around the bottom. Or so I would have let my self day dream about, if I knew Meta didn't always like to throw a curveball in that space full of hopes and dreams between sketch and actual dress. Thank goodness I didn't get my hopes up, because a few days later their English blog showcased this dress.
Really Meta? black and white stripes over a black silhouette? Why do you do this to us? You can't even see what's going on in that print. A black design printed on black stripes is just a bad idea. At least, the pink and blue versions are a little bit better.
