Forever rooting for you, Teddy Motors anon.
I fell in love the instant I saw it. I'll take any colorway, but red and black are my preferred
Well, my wallet is in pain (this came up at a really inconvenient time, to be honest), but I finally found it! And with this beautiful bonnet included. Thank you, kind anon, for alerting me to the auction.
Honestly, I haven't felt this much for a dress since the first JSK I ever bought. And that bonnet! I can't wait til it gets here and I can wear it. It's just so perfect. Thank you so much, anon!!
Thank you, anons. I've been looking for this colorway on and off for months, even emailed BtSSB on the advice of an anon, but no luck. I had started to give up looking and hope BtSSB would eventually restock it. Then I just get an email about it out of the blue! Honestly I almost felt like crying when I realized I could afford it. (And after spending a lot on concert tickets earlier that same day...) Gonna have to live more frugally than usual for a little while, but so worth it.
It's just... that lace and old school design, that color... It's so beautiful and reminds me of a fairytale. I'm so glad it's finally mine!
Missed this in another colourway recently, I'm so salty. I'll take any colour but red is my fav.
i pray to the burando gods every year for someone to sell it in the right cut and colourway. hopefully there will be a christmas miracle this year.
searching ever since it came out, wishing i had kept up with the reservations. please email me if you see the green or navy in either jsk. the brown is still available on baby jp if anyone wants it
Condensed my wishlist considerably, but I'm only actively looking for this one .
AP's cinderella style JSK or OP, preferably in pink but at this point I'll take any colorway.
Actively combing the internet for BPN hakuei OP again
I think I saw someone selling this in grey on LSE recently
I'd love it if I could find any of these before my birthday on the 1st of december but I'm not holding my breath.
Pastel A La mode OP in pink, either this or the OP with the apron. I doubt I will fit into it though, so it's only a distant dream.
not be a total buzzkill, but heads up on the marchen collab swan lake dress? I bought it when it was released and sold it almost immediately, the construction is really wonky and the quality wasn't as good as in the photos. If possible check it out in person from or a friend or something (?) or proof photos.
Oh, I'm disappointed but I still want it cause
As someone who ships odette and odile I need it in my life. But thank you for the heads up, now I know what to expect I won't be gutted upon arrival.
here I took some photos for review when I got it, never did the review and uploaded them for you, so you can just get a better feel for it? I had the skirt. It's really not bad. I love ballet prints as well.
I got the skirt version of the JM jsk but it's just not the same. Sobs.
baby the stars shine bright 2006 koitsukihime love mon princess stained glass angel / seraphim print jsk in black only
i can pay right away
message me on lacemarket @ www.lacemarket.us/author/empire/ (preferred) or my email is up top
Reposting from the previous thread. I don't think I'll ever find my grail dress but one can hope...
My only real dream dress. I don't care how jarring this color combo is. My 14 year old self wouldn't forgive me if I didn't try to get this.
Found March of Duck OP, but REAAALLLYY wanting the white unshirred JSK or SK.
BABY cross OP if anyone looking for the AP one wants to settle
That 1second BABY re-release of sweet devil was the cruelest brand activity of recent memory.
Honey Cake in yellow in any cut (except skirt) is my highest priority right now.
Second being the ivory colorway, but shall one day find it in yellow.

>My opinions matter, you all NEED to see them
>W-what do you mean I'm being a cunt, it's everyone else who's wrong, you're a-all salty, I'M right!!
stop replying to hc anon, obvious shitpost is obvious. Reminder that sage goes in ALL fields.
Back to topic. am I the only one who only had one dream dress, got it, and hasn't felt that urge since? I feel like I'm missing out on life.
Honestly I probably can get most of these, it's more of a cost barrier than these being rare or hard to find. But eventually I will get at least one or two more.
Ohhhh ok. It's alright. I was busy all weekend and didn't have time to do that. I'll get it eventually. No rush. I just wanted to know why it was so rare in resale. Thanks for clarifying!
Is pic related the third dress in the need is real-tier? There's a listing on 2nd hand Taobao. The title says it's a resale (selling) but i've no clue what the description is on about. Taobaospree and Taobaoring will buy from Ershou (2nd hand Taobao) if you wanted to get them to check it out.
Also, there's several listings on 2nd hand Taobao for the first dress in the need is real-tier. Go to:
and search '表面咒语'. You'll be searching 2nd hand surface spell. There's about 10 pages, and that dress pops up several times. You might have to go back a few pages to find them, but they're there. Just get your SS to check the descriptions out, as sometimes people are looking to trade.
Glad to know I gave someone a giggle.
same, my dream dress was nameless poem but then they came out with the rerelease so I got that and I dunno. there are dresses that I really really love but nothing that I've felt so like, head over heels about. I too feel like I am missing out, lol. There are other dresses I would love to own and they probably could be my dream dress, but I've made myself get over them since I'm too big for them.
Maybe we should start a roll call in the next thread.
I sent in an email order for the Porz Kerchief that was on Maiden Clothing two hours ago. Now it's sold out on the site but I haven't received a confirmation or cancellation email yet. Pray for me, gulls.
Meta Perforated Front JSK in British Check
It's my only real Dream Dress and the only thing I actively search for daily. I know, I know, there are several gulls I'm going to have to meet in the pit.
Dropped pic, whoops
I've seen Nameless Poem pop up a few times in these threads, and I'm not going to wear mine anymore! I am selling a Size Small Embroidered Version in Black currently.
$150 shipped in the USA
Victorian Secret Key babydoll jsk, red colorway only. Sorry I post this so much. I just...I want it so bad.
Finally saw this in a colorway I need and it's sold out. Help please
What are you, the most glamorous lady in the world? You'd sleep in my dream dress? If only you could see the look on my face right now.
gonna reply to you again but anon pls if you are selling this set I'm very interested, email me and let me know what you were thinking of price wise + would love to see pics
Here's a similar OP by AP. I think it was an OP, the thing I remember most was the apron and "Baby the Stars Shine Bright" ribbon closer to the bottom. I'm pretty sure the name was French - but I searched all the terms I thought I remembered and none of them are the right dress. It was very full skirted. It had a light yellow version and I'm pretty sure the baby ribbon was chocolate colored. It was a print, not solid colored, and it was sweets/cafe themed.
Never mind...Dear lord, I just found it. I have no idea how it's never showed up for me. I must have searched "baby patisserie" with jsk and op both like a thousand times. I do one more search and I suddenly find it.
Bear parka anon here, just won the auction and am now waiting on a shipping quote from the seller!
Thanks to everyone who messaged me on FB and to the anons who linked me to the auction from cgl, I probably would've never found it without you guys!
i think some anon was looking for these a bit ago? theyre on lolitabutiken
Desperately searching for these two; baby's tartan check ribbon shirring princess in brown and IW antique rose tiered long in brown! One day.....
>Determining what is cheap based on retail
It is obvious that this isnt a 'dream' dress that you have been searching for. Stop using these threads for wtb. Its a special set in a different color, it seems to sell arounds 250-300 usd usually. The one on lm right now is a bit overpriced because that user always does that but not by a lot.
>this person is expecting to buy still somewhat recent AP special sets at retail, also likely not factoring in changes in the value of yen, SS fees, higher AP USA prices, and shipping
>t o p k e k
also after a midsummer night's dream jsk II in navy or black but that's second priority
I want this OP. I don't care. I realize it's not everyone's cup of tea. I'd like it preferably in blue, but I will take pink too.
Thank you, I'm super excited!
>may all the other anons in this thread find their dream items soon
Hey anon, I have the poison cellar JSK, headbow and socks. Shoot me a message at [email protected] if you're interested. Not really sure how to price it so make me an offer if you're keen.
I try not to post it too much since I've been looking for a very long time but, still looking for this. I only want the white or black colorways.
I'm starting to think nobody bought this dress. It's never on sale but I've never seen it worn.
>tfw dream dress comes up
>not in the right length
>oh well it boobloafs terribly anyway
ALBINO ACCORD ANONS ITS TIME
Thanks Anon! Never even heard of half of these sites people are telling me about! Not so much the shirred version, unfortunately, plus last I saw it was literally half of that price.
Thanks for letting me know though!
I posted in the price check but no reply. How much do you think would be a reasonable price for Marine Kingdom OP in pink? I think the pink is the most sought after colorway so I was thinking 300 - 350. Or am I being ridiculous ?
Saw this dress on Lolibrary and fell in love. It's just so old school. I love everything about it except for the fact that I've never seen it for sale anywhere and probably never will.
This one is almost the exact same thing, except in ivory. it has some damage, but nothing that can't be fixed if you're good at washing your burando (the price is quite right):
good news is i recently got whip showcase jsk and im really excited to receive it!!!
bad news is im broke now
I'd really appreciate some help. I stalk the standard auction sites (LM, Y!, MBok) daily but it always helps to have other eyes out. Thanks gulls!
Congrats anon ! You definitely have interesting taste. I'm curious as to what your plans are with the drink me JSK in beige? I love the cut but I can't imagine what I would do with that colorway. Are you thinking of pairing it with a chocolate theme?
>generally curious, not trying to be rude anon
Here is a collage of my dream dresses/dresses that have eluded me. It's not in a specific order.
Pleats Op in black or white is what I'm most looking for, followed by Silent Moon (in black x white, white x black or black x silver) and the 2002 Baby Velvet OP.
Thank you for thinking of me anon, I had only just found out yesterday they had the regular short version in stock. I'm considering getting it for myself as a Christmas present if no dream dresses come up. I was wondering what the waist measurement would be? Around 70cm?
You're welcome. Around the 70cm mark sounds about right, considering that the bust measurement listed is 94cm. I have the Giulietta OP, which has a bust of 84cm with a waist around 68cm, so it's probably not going to be smaller than that. The lack of listing waist measurements combined with the inconsistent sizing is the only negative thing I have to say about Boz. Good luck!
I hope so, I might try to look into it to see if anyone knows for sure, but as you said the Giuletta OP is 10cm smaller in the bust and the waist is 68cm. It's always hard when measurements are not listed and sizing inconsistent but glad to hear you have nothing else negative about AtBoz to say. I have only owned Boz jackets so good to hear the quality is consistent with main pieces as well.Thank you!
Please update here if you do end up getting it. I'd be curious to hear its sizing as well. I have four dresses from Boz, with the only one that doesn't have back corset style lacing being my Giulietta OP, which is also the smallest of my dresses from them. For my two Roland coats from them, I have to go for the mens' size, as a 65cm waist is too small for me.
coming here as a last resort because those lacemarket prices are TOO DAMN HIGH
and because i am a shitass emo who cant be bothered to wait around for 17 fucking years for either to show up (;´༎ຶД༎ຶ`)
I need this so bad. I left my email if anyone has it.
I think I remember seeing this on someone's wishlist. I'd buy it if I wasn't too tall for it :(
It was sitting on Tokyoalice for ages before I bought it. Saw it again on closetchild a couple of weeks ago I think and on yahoo auctions. I just check yahoo and couldn't find it anymore. Keep your eyes open, this seems to be the time of year when they pop up!
25,800 yen +sh on tokyo alice
Oh boohoo. Then get whichever is cheaper if the dress is so important to you.
Ffs, this thread is supposed to be for people who are desperately trying to track down dream items, not whiny bitches who are too cheap to buy something that's actually available.
I sure will anon. I won't keep you in the dark if I find out. May I ask what the general size of the ops are? I always thought I was too big for AtBoz ops with a 90cm bust What colour rolands do you have? I have a black one and it is also the Men's sizing for the same reason as my waist fluctuates between 68-70. I am glad to hear I am not the only one who does that. Do you look for secondhand men's ones or are the more recent releases okay sizewise?
Thank you very much kind anon, I've been looking for a couple of years but it's such a pretty piece that I will continue my search.
Isn't there someone on /cgl/ who was looking for Twinkle Ornament in any colorway? It just popped up for a decent price on Lacemarket, if you don't mind some tiny stains. I could have sworn someone was looking for it, but if not, apologies for the unnecessary post.
Thank you! Erm, regarding general sizing, I'm not sure, to be honest, sorry. Out of my four Boz dresses, two are on the petite side, with waist under 70-72cm, with and bust under 88cm, whereas the other two are much more roomy, with my waist bein on the lower end of the fitting range. I have a similar waist to you - about 67- 69cm normally, with an 81cm bust.
Of my Rolands, one is secondhand from a few years ago, while the other was bought brand new last year. The fit is about the same I'd say. The first one, which I bought in as-new condition from a friend (she'd gotten it new), is a navy velveteen regular length Roland, while the other is the long length Extensa/ Exen Zur Roland in black corduroy. I'm looking to buy a regular length standard Roland at some point as well. I think women buying the mens size Roland is a fairly common thing, actually.
You don't by any chance know what the measurements ar elike on Boz's blouses do you? I'd love to get one at some point, but I wouldn't know whether to go for the men's or lady's size.
Your welcome! That's really interesting anon that there is such diversity. Thank you for providing me with so much detail. Our waists are very similar but your bust is much smaller mine is 10cm larger and sometimes slightly more than that.
It's good to know the fit is similar with both. Both of your rolands sound lovely. I love when different material textures are used in coords. Do you happen to wear aristocrat? I'd like a longer length roland as well as a velveteen one some day. Oh I had not realised, but that's nice to know.
Sadly I don't know too much, I've seen a couple of their older blouses online and from memory the measurements were around bust 86, waist 68 although some were smaller, I think. Lady's might be the way to go the only issue I could potentially see is waist measurements.
You're welcome as well! It's not a problem, and I'm more than happy to help another anon out. I'm a huge fan of Boz's stuff, but the inconsistent sizing/sizing info can be a pain at times.
I do indeed wear aristocrat - it's my main style in fact. I often use lolita dresses, such as IW's long length jsks, as a bit of a hybrid style look using aristo as the basis. I've been posting in the femme-aristocrat board. Thanks for the lovely words about my Rolands. The long length ones (which look lovely over skirts and dresses) in the standard fabric have just been restocked. The different fabric variants are all lovely, and I want to collect more in the future. There was a lovely contrast lapels one a few years ago.
Thank you as well for the info on the blouse sizing. It's much appreciated.
I know it's fucking mercari, but check with your SS to see if they're still available, they seem to be. I've found Japonica to be cheapest for them.
OP in grape (?)
JSK in what seems to be pink
and I feel like someone posted this recently, Meta's Magical Starry Sky Pinafore JSK in black? Magical Moonlight?
That's so nice. There isn't too much info on Boz sizing so to share the information is really helpful. I'm really getting into it too, AtBoz has a very nice aesthetic. That's amazing anon, I've never spoken to anyone whose main style is femme aristo. I like the look of that hybrid lolita aristo style. Long IW dresses in general are beautiful. I really enjoy that thread I post occasionally but I love seeing coord shots and sharing information. I wear femme aristo as well but only have a few coords. Your welcome. Oh that's brilliant . I hope you can. I have seen photos of that version and I agree it is stunning.Your welcome anon.
We all have to start somewhere, and sharing info is a good way of helping each other out. So, you are very welcome. I wear a mixture of both male and femme aristo, actually, outside of work. Overall, I think that aristocrat seems to be showing signs of having people becoming more interested in it again, which is nice.
>no proof pics
It's some 40-somthing year old dude who wears randoseru with all of his outfits. There was an article on him a while back, but I can't be bothered to dig it up.
He pulls it off though, so whatever.
here you go anon, I nearly bought this at least three times but couldn't decide so go for it
>tfw now kicking myself that i didnt buy the meta houndstooth when it was up on maidenclothing
Might just go for one of these after christmas if I dont blow all my cash on gifts.
I don't know if this counts, but I want this so damn bad. It's like it doesn't exist.
I think you are definetly right anon! Oh that's brilliant you wear both styles of aristocrat sorry for misunderstanding. I've thought about wearing the male version but don't think I can pull it off. I posted in the femme aristo for concrit and to not let it die. I have some more questions for you if you are happy to be asked but maybe it will be more appropriate in that thread. Also I forgot to ask are you hunting a dream dress or item?
OP as priority, black as priority then white. JSK is fine too, black & then white. No red and pink.
Thank you so much anon!
I have a quick question though. I've never ordered from mandarake before; should I be using a shopping service to do so? I normally use tenso to order things from Japan, but I looked into ordering from here and it seems I can have the dress shipped directly to the US? Sorry if this is a super noob question.
That's sketchy as Hell; those photos are taken from TokyoAlice, so if it's a private seller then they're using stolen photos. I highly doubt TokyoAlice would be selling on Mercari, especially since that set sold out months ago.
Update: The photo was added and I had my SS ask about damages. Apparently the seller claims to have only worn it once and that it's in like new condition, so I got it!
I'm really excited. I kind of wish it came with the cape, but I guess I'll just have to keep looking.
Dream dress alert!
