Chess Story Vs Baby the stars shine bright (AATP)

Oh yeah, Chess Story has pre-released new design of theirs.

Yes, apparently it comes with jewelry (if you want to pay extra for the whole set). For now the prerelease is sold out (!), so you will have to wait a moment before it (I hope?) gets released or rather re-released. 

This print totally reminded me of Baby, the Stars Shine Bright's print (or AATP)

Galactic Journey to the Stars

I'm not sure how about you, but for me these prints are VERY similar. Even the colourway... although I must say that Chess Story did not make a replica - so it's fine and I love the gradient. I might get the navy colourway one day from them (maybe).

Innocent World Carriage Tassel vs Infanta Power and Throne

So, today my favourite classical lolita brand - Innocent World - has surprised me with their newest print.

Innocent World

It's name is quite lovely indeed, Carriage Tassel. No, it's not really original (not like BTSSB's or AP's names). We can assume it's all about Carriages (another Cinderella print?!) and tassels.
I can only say that tassels in a dress is not a common thing, and I'm not quite sure if I had seen any brand JSK or OP with tassels (I might be wrong, though).

It comes with standard brown and beige colourway (or rather IW's "chocolate" and "cream"), black and beige and – surprisingly – purple, and in 2 versions - short and long.
Short is being standard 93cm (55cm) long, whilst long is 108cm (68cm).

I'm sorry, Innocent World, with all the love you have from me, I must say that Infanta's newest print - Power and Throne - is so far more interesting.



It comes in 2 ways and in 3 colors - Dark Blue, Wine and White.


The price for them is quite decent, being ~$80. The material is velveteen. Embroidery can be either silver or gold.

Problems: bust again!

According to IW's site their dress is just max 98cm, when minimum is 85cm - which is quite a sad news to all the very thin and plus size lolis. 
Infantas XL size is 100cm (bust) and the material being velveteen is known for not stretching easily, leaving a very little breathing room for all those over 90cm bust. Sadly, Infanta does not do custom sizing.


I'd say that IW's print is quite lovely, but the carriage print has been for so many seasons now and together with Alice prints is getting a little bit annoying. Infanta's newest baby is ideal for Christmas season, being all velveteen and rather thick, as well as it will please all the A Game of Thrones fans.
