Angelic Pretty: Mademoiselle de Paris

mintyfrills, kawaii, cute, lolita fashion, sweet lolita,

Recently Angelic Pretty released Mademoiselle de Paris, a simple all over print with poodles and crowns. I think they pick good colors for their prints with black details. It always looks Amazing in lavender (Like Cinema Doll or Dolly Dot and many more). Choosing to put red details on the white colorway makes it stand out from the others, I think you could make some interesting coords with it.

This dress is cute but I'm not a huge fan of the general aesthetic, the small dots and thin lines of the black motifs is not my thing. I like big cute chunky designs more. But even if I wouldn't buy it myself I think its pretty and look forward to seeing coords with it!

My favorite colorway is the lavender because I just think black and lavender is a great match.

Online Store: Kawaii Honbu

mintyfrills, kawaii, plushie, review,

I've been asked by online store Kawaii Honbu to review a few things from their shop! The sell cute clothing, accessories, plushies and anime merch. They sell a lot of stuff from china, I think its a really good option if you feel like shopping services, taobao and everything like that is a bit complicated. They also offer free worldwide shipping with every order, which makes it easy to order just a few things at the time from them. If you just need one thing shipping can make cheap items expensive.

Here are the items from them:

So I put together an outfit to try them out! The dress if from kokokim, striped socks from Angelic Pretty and necklace from Vivienne Westwood.

mintyfrills, kawaii, plushie, review,
The shoes are pretty comfortable for high heel shoes and they are stable to walk in. The quality feels nice. The plastic part work great for showing off pretty lolita socks. Its a pretty pale shade of pink, I would probably prefer a bit more bright pink but since you can change out the laces that makes them more diverse.
I was very positively surprised by the stockings actually. They are very stretchy both over the legs and in the waist. I often have problems with stockings being uncomfortable over the waist because I'm pretty sensitive and have sensory issues so its a really big deal for me. This also means that I would totally recommend these if you are plus size, they would probably fit comfortably even if you're twice my size. They don't feel fragile either and are soft. The pattern is really cute and doesn't look cheap like many lace style stockings often do.

mintyfrills, kawaii, plushie, review,

The bunny ears are cute but not totally my style. They sit comfortably and are not too tight on your head. One thing that I really did like is that it has lace laying under it which really nicely covers my unbleached roots, which is a plus.
The plush is cute, though its not proper San-x which I think you also can see by the cheap price. Its well made and really soft. So its up to you whats most important! I think some of their stuff is from the brands, you can usually see on the price which is which.


The shop owner is based in England so you can easily message them questions in English. Though the items are sent directly from china, which means if they are from different original sources you might not get everything in the same package. A actually good thing with this is its a lot less likely to get hit by customs fees if you are ordering a lot of stuff. And if you live in London they will also be selling at Hyper Japan this summer!

Angelic Pretty: Daydream Bed [Imai Kira collab]


Mintyfrills, sweet lolita, fashion, kawaii, cute, dress, yume kawaii, yume,

This seasons Angelic Pretty x Imai Kira collab print is Daydream Bed and its adorable! This really fits into the aesthetic of 'yume kawaii' (dream cute) that I myself am really into right now. Its a really cute print that I think stands out from other Angelic Pretty releases this season. Having beds as the print theme is an adorable idea. I'm not much for white colorways but I must admit this print is really cute in white. The pink is cute but I think it should of been a little bit more bright. 

Another thing that stands out about this dress is how they styled it. I adore the nightcap and eye-mask accessories along with the sleepy plushies. The cuts are simple but I think they suit the style of the print. I think the highwaist jsk looks really comfy, though I know not everyone likes the highwaist style. The collar of the OP looks cute and I think the arms actually look pretty loose which is nice.

I would totally want to get this dress someday, more of this please!

Angelic Pretty: Fancy Hospital

mintyfrills, kawaii, cute, sweet lolita, sickly cute,

This dress just came out of nowhere for me, didn't see any pictures of it before it came up this week. This weekend Angelic Pretty will be releasing Fancy Hospital. This really feels like the cutest Menhera clothes ever. I don't think this is a theme that Angelic Pretty has done before at all (from what I can remember, correct me if I'm wrong). Since most themes Angelic Pretty does are kinda overdone (toys, chocolate, marine, carnival, skies etc) it's really nice seeing them venture into a new one.

The dress has a really casual feel to it due to the light silk fabric and the skirt not being as wide as usual. The cutsew version looks really sweet and comfortable. The scale and style of the print is really suitable for the different cuts. 

The thing that makes me most exited about this dress is seeing the menhera themed coords that people will do with it! Good job mixing it up and giving us something a little less predictable!

Angelic Pretty: Romantic Cat

Mintyfrills, sweet lolita, fashion, kawaii, cute, kitten, dress,

Recently Angelic Pretty released this adorable cat themed print, which I think might be one of their best cat themed dresses to date! I feels like a combination of Dolly Cat and Romantic Rose Letter. Its a very sweet print and its feels like the cats are in the same style as the bunnies on the recent Ribbon Berry Bunny. The cuts are simple but have really nice detailing. The lace layered over the fabric on the bodice gives a bit of a classy touch to it.

I think the colorways are really cute. I didn't see it at first but its both a nice bright lavender and a color that is more grey than lavender. I don't think there has been much of this grey shade on Angelic Pretty prints before but we might be seeing more of it coming up since the new rerelease of popular Misty Sky includes grey as a new colorway. Just like they added a lot of the darker turquoise in the last season maybe grey is this seasons new color.

Angelic Pretty: Ribbon Berry Bunny

kawaii sweet lolita fashion mintyfrills cute pretty dress gingham

A while back Angelic Pretty released 'Ribbon Berry Bunny'. This dress really reminds me of Sweet Ribbon Strawberry mixed with Cherry Berry Bunny. I think its a really cute print, the bunnies are adorable. I think the blue colorway has a really interesting look that could make for really cool coords but I like the red version the most!

The detachable sleeves really just feels like older cookie cutter AP, since I don't like coording with white I dont like at all. The jsk is cute and as you all know Im a big fan of scallop designs. Though the way the print ends looks a bit off, not bad but could of been improved.

Its a really cute dress that I do like, but its nothing I would buy myself.

Blingup Nails: Adorable nails!


Blingup makes adorable nailsets and they are just perfect to match with Lolita! They have lots of cute designs and I got these cute ones. They have some lovely lavender flowers and some glittery bling.

I usually get my nails done with gel or acrylic, but honestly its way too expensive and can be in the way. So I was excited to try out a nail set like this that you can put on to have cute nails over the weekend and then take them off to use again later.


The stick on stickers are practical since it makes them easy to take off but I feel like they kinda fall off almost too easy. So I feel using some glue makes them stay on better, just a bit so they still come off later.

The quality feels nice and the deco is really well attached, they also send some extra stones just in case. I look forward to using them again for a convention next week!


I really think they are well worth it since one set of these gorgeous nails cost about the same as getting your nails done once with just one color here in Sweden. They have lots of cute designs, here are some other designs I really like!

Angelic Pretty x Disney: Marie 'lets play hide and seek'

aristocats, mintyfrills, kawaii, cute, fashion, kitten, cat, gyaru, himegyaru,

Angelic Pretty and Disney have made many collabs before and here is one with Marie from Aristocats. I wasn't a big fan of the last one, kiss me cat. The print looks pretty cute but with the lower price tag you don't get the same quality. You can see that the boarder print on the OP doesnt line up with the bottom of the dress. I'ts still a cute dress but I think its more if you want it for a casual look. Since the skirt doesn't have the boarder print it doesn't have the same problem. 

They print is actually really cute though when you don't have the boarder its really small so you wont see the cute Marie illustrations. Actually I think the style and length of the dress makes it look more hime gyaru, it reminds me of some of the My Melody x Liz Lisa collab dresses. It's a cute dress and not that expensive, so maybe good for everyday clothes!

I also wanted to recommend you to take a look at the other cute Marie items they are selling on the Disney site. There are some really adorable designs if you are a fan of Marie or just kittens in general. Here are just some of the adorable items available!

Angelic Pretty: Sweet Cream Princess

mintyfrills, kawaii, cute, sweet lolita, fashion, dress, klänning, brand,

Angelic Pretty just released the unfortunately named 'Sweet Cream Princess'. I must say I had higher hopes for this dress, it looked really nice in the earlier photos. The print is boring and the colorways are dull. I hope the colors look better in real life but from the pictures I'm really not impressed. The mint colorway is a bit better. The print has some cute elements but I don't like how they put them together. I'm usually a big fan of scallops but it just looks off on this dress. The shoulder straps on the jsk look weird and the white scallop part on the bodice look out of place.

 I was looking forward to the more interesting OP but honestly it just looks cheap on the front part. Its just a flat piece of white fabric with some frills on it. The plain fabric really makes it extra cheap looking. I don't know if its just bad stock photos but I just don't like how it looks.

Angelic Pretty: ★Brilliant Princess Story★

mintyfrills, kawaii, cute, lolita fashion, sweet, dress, release,

Angelic Pretty recently released this cute horse and carriage print called Brilliant Princess Story, reminds me of Cinderella. The OP cut has really nice detailing and the print is really suitable to this type of dress. The bodice looks wonderful and I love the princess sleeves. Though it sadly the sleeves tend to be pretty small. The jsk design looks like it would be really slimming.

The pink and sax colorway look so sugary sweet on the pictures from the fashion show, like cotton candy. The navy colorway looks nice too but its not as much my style. All in all I think the dress is adorable and has really nice cuts but I'm not really into the theme that much.

They also made this ott dress using this print which I think works really nicely, I would love to see it on one of the lighter colorways, I think it would look really dreamy.

Baby The Stars Shine Bright: ❤ Kumya chan’s Love Love Valentine ❤

valentines, btssb, sweet lolita, fashion, mintyfrills, kawaii, cute,

Perfect in time for valentine coming up Baby released Kumya chan’s Love Love Valentine. A cute valentine themed print with plushies and hearts. I'm not sure what I think of this print, I don't like all the brown details on the top part of the print. The baby pink version doesnt have it but the pink is too pale. This print is really not my style but the plushies are really adorable. 

valentines, btssb, sweet lolita, fashion, mintyfrills, kawaii, cute,valentines, btssb, sweet lolita, fashion, mintyfrills, kawaii, cute,

I like the shape of the high waist version and I think it suits this style. Though the scallop detailing on the other jsk looks really cute, even more on the red version where you can see the white trim. The heart on the side is a nice tough also.

I think this print probably looks a lot better in real life because when its small it looks messy. The closeups of the print makes it look a lot better. It's a cute dress if you like btssb's aesthetic generally.

Royal Princess Alice: Glanz

mintyfrills, kawaii, cute, lolita fashion, new, pretty,

Royal Princess Alice released this cat themed dress just called 'Glanz', no idea about the name choice. I like cats on lolita dresses but I'm not sure about these that just look like cats photoshoped onto the print. You can barely see the print on the white version and on the black the contrast and balancing is off. Why do they insist on putting crosses on everything? It really has nothing to do with the rest of the print. 

The lace past on the front looks okay though it looks flat and I think a border between the print and lace part with some trims or lace would look a lot more neat. They finally have lace trims on the bottom but its a but too long  and separated weirdly from the dress. The bodice barely has any details at all. Though I would love to have the white tights to wear with cult party kei. The dress isn't horrible but more should be expected with that price tag.
