I’m not really sure how much this review is wanted or needed. I also don’t know if there’s a better place for it (maybe I’ll mirror it on Tumblr). But I like reading reviews before I buy something so I’ll post this on the off chance that it helps someone.
Here is the JSK in question. I brain farted big time (I’m getting over a flu thing) and didn’t take a photo of it by itself.

I ordered a size large (34″ish bust, 29″ish waist) and it fits perfectly! I really liked all the colors but there was only one green left in my size. I’m kind of glad I didn’t have to choose.
At the time of writing this post I see that the cost of the dress went up. It’s now roughly the price I paid including shipping. What’s with the jump?! Anyway, I paid roughly $40 total for this dress. I’m quite pleased with it overall and I’d happily pay for the new, inflated price but I’d be a bit peeved if I knew I missed a lower price. Of course.
On to some detail shots!
Here’s a little sampling of the art! It’s very cute and childlike. It has a real 80s vibe to it, I think.
I haven’t worn this out yet but I’ve lounged around in it at home, sundress style (no blouse, no petti). It’s very comfortable. The fabric is perfect. The print is clear. I forgot to photograph the ties but they’re detachable. I think there’s a lot of different blouses and cardigans you can wear with this. It’s very forgiving. I think there’s a very Springy feel to this.
I need a better sock choice for this. I like the ones I have but they’re not very lolita at all.
I’ll leave you with a few more pics of coord ideas. I don’t have a lot to play with but here ya go:
