It’s terribly materialistic of me, but I confess that I’m very much looking forward to shopping in Tokyo and Osaka — soon! No harm in compiling a little Lolita wish-list, right? La Carmina’s spring and summer picks lie in the Classical Lolita direction. Light-colored bell-skirts with blue/purple floral accents, paired with short black riding jackets and Gothic accessories. Fumiko’s brand Chantilly comes closest to my vision… (I interviewed her in this CNNGo article .) I’ve always wanted one of Mana’s older Moi-meme-moitie dresses, with a blue and white rose print.
