I'm hoping to get caught up on posting this weekend, with details about my adventures with Otakon, group ordering and more, but work is keeping me crazed until then. When this popped up in my blog feed, though, I just had to make a quick note of it:
What brand do you think that is? The bows, the two-toned frontpiece, the hem pintucks - it all screams Innocent World, right?
But look closer. The shirring gives it away. It's Metamorphose! According to the Osaka shop blog, this is a new design called Old Rose, which is going to be stocked in limited supply.
There's a black-on-black version up on the online shop, but to be honest, it didn't really catch my eye. This colorway, however, is so close to an Innocent World JSK I own, that I couldn't help but stop & stare.
The blog stock photos appear to be a plain fabric, rather than the printed fabric on the black x black colorway, but we'll see what turns up in the online store. Given Meta's penchant for more forgiving sizing, and the use of both front & back shirring, this could be a great option for larger lolitas who long for an old-fashioned Classic style JSK.
