CDJapan.co.jp isn't a site I browse very often, mostly because it never holds anything of interest to me. And if it does, anything on it is far out of my price range. But for kicks, I decided to give it a go and peruse the new Moitie items that have been added.
So here's my commentary on a few of them:
Asymmetry Corset Skirt:
This gets an A+ from me! I love asymmetry, I think it's really fun. And naturally, it's featured in Mana's standard blue and black color scheme.
The corset lacing isn't too wide (although a matching blue lace would be preferable) and it just drapes so nicely. *drools*
But for $400 American dollars....I think I could create something similar myself for a lot less.
High Necked Frill Blouse:
I adore these kinds of blouses...I really do. The detail is stunning. The ruffles on the front of the blouse may be a bit over the top, but they look evenly spaced and not sloppy at all.
The sleeves are great, in my opinion. I'm not sure if it's gathered or elastic, but I just know that it would be tough for me to get something to look that good.
For just under $190, this might be passable.
Holy Cross Gathered One Piece:
I opted to put up the photo for the white version, because honestly I thought the two black version were silly looking. I'm not normally a fan of this type of skirt, but on white it looks a lot less noticeable.
This dress has such a delicate feel to it, I can almost reason chucking out $460 for it. Almost.
Cross Lace Bolero:
Hurrah, more of the infamous cross lace. I think this is probably the prettiest bolero I've ever seen though. It looks very delicate and beautiful and I can see myself wearing it with more than just Lolita.
And...it's under $200....so perhaps it'll go on my X-mas List?
So that was me having a bit of a go at Mana's line...even though I'm not actually that fond of it. What are you favorite Moitie pieces?
