Okay, last thread we discussed top 5 favorite prints, let’s talk about non-printed favorites. Post top 5 solid or patterned pieces you’re looking to get. How many solids do you have in your wardrobe now? What are the things you’re looking for in nice solid piece?

>> No.10460919

Hell yeah this is what I’m here for. Prints are great but mmmm solids with cute construction are chef’s kiss.

In no order:
1. Dream Doll
2. Bunny Crown (still can’t believe this lasted long enough to go on sale, aren’t polka dots popular?)
3. Drink Me
4. Ribbon Topping
5. Stripe Marine

I'm not really big on solids tbdesu. During the earlier phase my wardrobe mostly consisted of hand made solids, therefore I feel better buying prints. It just feels I'm getting more for the same price.
Order is random:

1. Stella
2. Silky Lady (didn't manage to get my shit together during the last time it was on sale)
3. Katrina
4. Vintage Tulle
5. Rabbit Party

I like special set edition, although fluffy bow headdress is its best thing for me. Although I shall admit high waisted cut looks good despite being so basic.
If choosing between this and melty cream doughnut, I'd go with latter. MCD doughnuts look more voluminous, with BSP it's just colorful rings.

It's a shame because I actually think the print looks really cute in some colorways. If the quality was at all decent I would've tried to get it, but as it is, it just really isn't worth it.

>> No.10461807

This belongs in the feels thread, but I'm putting it here because the most recent one got deleted.

I'm a pure AP 2010 sweet lolita and I don't know what to do with myself. The situation right now makes me actually depressed (first world problems, I know). With AP releasing nothing interesting anymore (besides maybe some socks and the ice cream necklace) and the secondhand market being so competitive again, it feels like I won't add anything to my wardrobe for ages. I feel like I'm going to become a spectator at my own "hobby." I have the money to spend, but I either feel scalped or can't get to listings fast enough. I don't want to quit, but it's not fun anymore. Go ahead and shit on me for being a consumer, but I can't be the only one feeling this way. I don't want to feel this bad.

>> No.10461809

I feel the same way anon. I got back into lolita at the worst time. I'm hoping that the next trend will come along soon and AP prices will stabilize.

>> No.10461814

I started buying brand a year ago, and my favorite style is 2010 sweet. People talk about being able to buy rings and stuff for ~10 USD and getting fairly popular prints for <150 and it blows my mind. I hope the era stops being so trendy soon.

>> No.10461815

I wear 2010 sweet as well and feel the exact same way. It isn't worth buying anything at the moment. I honestly am tempted to sell most of my wardrobe just to buy old school/gothic pieces.

>> No.10461816

Thank you for sharing your feelings. I feel slightly less alone.

I've been wearing lolita for about 5 years and I can't imagine just getting into it now/just the last year. I have a large enough wardrobe, but there's still goals I haven't reached, so the market makes me feel trapped. I don't know what the next popular trend will be, but it can't come soon enough

I've been tempted to quit and sell, and more than double the money I put into lolita, but I just can't do it because I know I'd regret it, and maybe prices will go even higher. I wish there was another style or brand I was interested in, but no matter how hard I try, I'm just not. I'm willing to wait for prices to get better again, but I'm also scared maybe this will be the situation forever.

>> No.10461818

Why on earth would sweet being popular make you want to sell everything? Now is the time to flex what you have. It's mostly detailed/popular print main pieces and jewelry that are skyrocketing- there's still plenty of non scalped blouses, cardigans, etc, so you can still expand your wardrobe and make new coords. Unpopular 2010 era main pieces still sell for low prices too.

>> No.10461823

It seems odd, I know, so I'll try to explain?
I want to sell everything because not being able to purchase anything left on my wishlist makes me feel like I don't have "a way forward" or "a future" in lolita. Like, there's nothing to be excited again? Yes, wearing the clothes is 50% of the joy, but the other 50% is getting a new piece that I've wanted for a long time and experiencing that feeling of "finally!". The things left in my wishlist were the harder to get pieces in the first place, so now they are going to be even harder (Milky-Chan the Fawn, Candy Fairy, Dreamy Baby Room, etc). I have been buying other, less popular things to kind of soothe myself, but it still feels bad that the big ticket items are very hard to get. I guess I could go for some of the high auctions, but there's a point where spending $500-1k on a $270-$300 retail dress feels... bad? Especially when it's every foreseeable dress, and not just a "okay I'll splurge just this once because I really want it."

I admit, the flexing part feels nice (I have things like the Giraffe necklace/ring, Milky Planet, Vanilla-Chan, Chick-Chan, etc) but sometimes looking at it all just feels like good memories that I won't experience on the market again?

My brain is stupid and it only sees the holes of what I don't have.

>> No.10461824

I definitely know how you feel. I basically was finally able to afford Lolita regularly like a few weeks before the virus hit my state. Right at the beginning, a whole bunch of people suddenly put their stuff up for sale for good prices, and I was so excited and got a few things! But then the Great Scalpening of Sweet Lolita began and I basically can never afford a single piece of AP jewelry ever (I literally only have 1 piece) and I'm afraid to post WTB's for the rest of the dream dresses I have.

>> No.10461847

Anon I understand how you feel, and I have a lot of similar feelings. I just wanted to pop in and say, I think if you were to sell everything you would regret it. Sweet is very popular right now, but it might not always be. I think its worth hanging on to your things and waiting a while to see if the market will stabilize. The sweet lolita economic bubble might pop, and if we do see lower prices again in the future you'll be glad you stuck around.

>> No.10461974

AP needs to stop releasing these ugly plain quasi classic dresses.

>> No.10461993

Ugh, That's actually the worst. I've watched prices steadily rise since the summer of last year, but then there was such a sharp increase around May that it made my head spin. Basically the only jewelry pieces I'm buying right now are new release items (thank god the Topping Heart jewelry wasn't too hard to get for once), or things that have been on my wishlist for years, and even for those I'm spending hundreds and just crossing my fingers I don't hate myself later.

I think you're right, and I've invested too much time gaining what I already have. I just can't stop the occasional feeling of "wow I hate this, my dreams are over" from popping up... as stupid as that sounds.

I'm kind of convinced that the problem is being worsened right now because AP is going in the opposite direction from what most people want. Maybe a lot of others are just as hopeless, and they're throwing even more money at 2010 sweet to grab everything before it just disappears.

>> No.10462064

The only way to force them back is to not buy things you don't like, though since the Chinese lolitas have so much buying power realistically there might not be much the western market can do. Still, Ice Cream Parlor sold out instantly so maybe that and looking at the state of the current market might be a wake up call for AP that hyper sweet is selling and their weird classic shit isn't.

>> No.10462067

Yeah I liked that I had cheaper comfy pieces that were something that I enjoyed, now that theyre worth so much I don't feel as comfortable just wearing them. I may sell a few for too much and then re-buy them if stuff gets rereleased or something.

i hope so. also my boyfriend is so cute. i was talking about this to him and he said "that's like the only lolita people know about". (he's from asia)

>> No.10462069

Take it from the perspective of someone that was here in 2010: just know that lolita trends come in cycles. Will it be hard to buy stuff like Milky Planet for the next couple of years? Yes. But time will pass, trends will change.

I'm seeing this as a perfect opportunity to stop focusing on main pieces like JSKs and OPs and instead to focus more on things like blouses (which I've always been lacking in), and checking out different brands that I've always liked but prioritized AP over them. I'm going to try giving Baby a chance as well!

>> No.10462073

I hope you're right anon! I realize my scope is kind of small, and this is the first "upset" I've seen in my chosen sub-style. I'm willing to hang out for a year or two and hope prices don't actually become permanent luxury brand prices. Because that's a real, possible outcome I'm not hoping for.

Since there's no other brands I'm really in love with, I've mostly been saving money, and then falling victim to the price-gougey listings when I find a high priority piece. Which sucks, because I know I'm not really helping, but I'm not sure what else I'm supposed to do.

I wish I liked the more mature look of Baby. I tried. I bought one baby dress and regretted it. I've wanted to sell it for years.

>> No.10462077

This is what I really don't get. Does AP really look at the stuff rotting in their stores and think "This was great! Let's do more of it!" ? Or is it just that all the designs are done months ahead of time and they can't really change course until a year later?

>> No.10462082

AP seems to be a little slow/clueless au times but they aren't dumb. I'm sure they will make more of the cute stuff people want. And yeah stuff is planned fairly far ahead of time. Think about how we see the fashion show items months ahead - they're most likely already in production then.

>> No.10462084

they have enough money that they can do whatever they want and not care if it sells well tbf

>> No.10462085

At the same time, AP's stores are so small, sometimes it seems like they are begging to give some of the unpopular stuff away. They have to move product for it to not become a dead inventory problem. That's not a super high bar though, considering some people will buy anything... like that map dress.

Anon, I don't think it's stupid. I used to be an "oldschool" lolita (I didn't really know that was a thing until recently), in that I just prefered to buy the older pieces, and now that it's trendy and prices have skyrocketed, I've found that I've lost some of my joy. But, I realized that I still like to LOOK at old advertisements that are nostalgic for me, I love what I do own, and I thoroughly enjoy watching my fellow lolitas enjoy the fashion too.

I don't think this will be as popular as Ice Cream Parlor. It's not nearly as interesting of a release, in my opinion. Halloween prints have a smaller audience because sweet =/= liking halloween prints.

AP releases sell out in literal seconds. More than a minute, and you're looking at an "unpopular" release. I'd expect this to sell out completely in a few minutes, but maybe the most popular colorway to go instantly, just because scalpers will know this is a "holiday" print.

>> No.10462369

I was wondering this as well, I never been to an AP store and only seen photos so im not sure

>> No.10462371

What's sold online is separate stock from physical stores. If you're buying stuff at release online, you aren't like competing with the people at physical stores to buy something.
Sometimes on AP's site there will be a notification that an item is sold out online, but may still be at a physical location they can pull from to send to you. So at that point, physical stock does matter.

>> No.10462398

Okay! If stuff stays in stock for at leeeeast a minute I should be fine. Snagging accessories has at least trained me to go quickly through checkout. ^^

>> No.10462399

Idk why you think Halloween prints appeal to a smaller audience, because even some gothic lolitas have soft spot for APs Halloween stuff.

I‘ve bought APs Halloween releases from the last 3 or 4 years and they usually sell out instantly within minutes. However, Dream Cat Go Round was the outlier, because it wasn’t considered as a very halloween-y print.

They can't be worn for many occasions and a lot of sweet style lolitas (myself included) don't like "creepy"-cute things, so that would balance out the demand. I might be wrong and that's okay.

That's because it's new lolitas who post a lot in lolita groups. People who have been wearing the fashion for a long time don't need to spam the same 3 questions/topics, and just stay in their quiet small groups.

Cgl for the past few years has been holding the opposite opinion of AP. What they think is ugly ends up selling out quickly.

>> No.10462767

I can’t explain it myself, but even though they can only be worn a few months a year I just really love to collect those Halloween items. Also, AP‘s prints have never been „creepy“ cute, because they never wander in a guro territory. They’re spooky and cute. They kinda have the same vibe as the annual Disney and Sanrio Halloween stuff.

>> No.10462768

Scripts barely help you anymore. It’s mainly just clicking and hoping the site doesn’t crash. Last time I had my bf use a script for me, I probably would’ve been quicker just clicking myself, because we had to re-do some steps, chose my second choice items etc.

I'm sort of an APFag and I agree that these are really not much better than taobao. Taobao shit is pretty good and proves that you can have decent quality dresses for a much lower price tag. But when you buy AP, you're buying the brand name and their design. There's similar taobao dresses for Little Witch, for example, but taobao will never be as recognizable and bragworthy as a well-known brand name. So all AP has to do is release something even HALF decent and people will buy it.

Little Witch is the first thing I'm going for from AP in a few years because I like this print SPECIFICALLY and a similar dress from taobao wouldn't cut it.

Nayrt but maybe it is because many people like both brands and can't help but compare BABY being relatively consistent while AP is taking a bit of a dive in design and quality in the last couple years?

There is also a ton of bitching about AATP which is also just objectively ugly these days as opposed to AP being decent or less than great but disappointing and no one is angrily defending AATP. I love AP but am not in denial about how much their new stuff is clearly going in a different direction than the 2010 sweet many of us love.

I really wish there was a better way to get feedback to AP. People say vote with your wallet but it doesn't work when the takeaway from people not buying skirts is to stop making them, instead of just making skirts that fit people instead.

>> No.10464106

APs modern skirts aren’t even that small. Most of them go up to 80cm on the waist. I’m 5’7” and can even wear the mini skirts which were never meant to fit the lolita silhouette. How large is your waist that an 80cm waist isn’t big enough? The person who said that was “too small” for Japanese lolitas is beyond stupid

>> No.10464111

I have a 26" waist and it's not that I can't wear them it's that they hurt my stomach. I don't think 26" is fat but you add a blouse/cutsew and that the shirring doesn't have a lot of give and they are just not comfortable.

I have never had a problem with any of that with any of the basic AP skirts past the year 2008. Even at my fattest which was a 26” waist like yours. Maybe you bloat during the day and get even larger measurement wise. Even my fatty-chan friend who’s pushing that 80cm waist limit doesn’t bitch like you do about it

Because fit alone isn’t going to dictate how well they sell. About a four year period, around 2014-2018, when the era of super OTT sweet and casual wear items like printed cutsews and skirts was at a lull, people didn’t buy them as much. Sweet classic or OTT classic was in, and skirts weren’t as favorable. If you weren’t new as fuck you’d know that’s why they died down. They didn’t sell, despite their size range capabilities. Can’t believe I’m spoon feeding this hard but here you go.

Im not referring to their mini skirts when I listed those waist sizes, because they don’t fit the lolita silhouette. I mentioned them to say “even they fit me fine” briefly. Reading comprehension sure is hard for you

I wasn’t acting like it’s an accomplishment. It was relevant to the conversation and a point of reference. I was saying that the miniskirts fit me fine in all ways at 5’7”, way above AP’s target height range for the mini skirts, so I don’t understand the bitching about them being too short. You really seem to be struggling to follow the conversation. But yeah, I’m totally fat fitting into those skirts just fine kek.

APs skirts didn’t sell. That’s why they stopped making them. Anyone who watched the decline in popularity of AP skirts over the years would agree.

No, it's very specific.
- If you're big as in fat, get the Meta luckypack skirts because they're fully shirred. A lot of regular release skirts are not big-girl-friendly at all.

- alternatively, it's cheaper to buy two skirts and alter it into one skirt rather than two dresses.

- If you're big-boobed it also gets recommended because you can use an off brand blouse and don't need to worry about fitting into the bust, but it's rather selective advice. You need to be careful with high-waisted skirts because the narrow waist may emphasise how big your boobs are, and miniskirts tend not to be a good balance for big busts either.

So pretty much, very specific uses.

On the other hand, jsks get recommended to newbies because it's easier to coord. And we're currently going through some chiffon blouse popularity, they're sheer, so it's again easier to coord with jsks than skirts.

Not a reply to anyone in particular but I was thinking about the pricing issue and I actually don’t think it will ever go back to how it was before. It may not stay this high but gone are the days of sub 300 milky planet.

No one had ever seen milky planet or sugary carnival go for 600-1000 before. And I don’t think we’ve ever seen a price trend so sharp on general pieces (as opposed to one specific one, like ctp). now that people have seen that they’ll be snatched up in an instant. The dresses will only become more rare as people refuse to sell them. I don’t hold out hope for a re-release, but I think only a major influx of dresses into the market is going to equal this out. Even then, a poly re-release would be ugh
