I don't really get this attitude desu, like you don't have to be consistent in your wardrobe, you can like other styles.

Whenever I see a girl post something like "WTB 8 AP dresses" I think, okay, you're just getting started, good luck!

But when I see someone with say, a pair of white brand shoes, dream burgundy OTKS and like a dream black headbow, it doesn't look consistent but I'm thinking, "This is someone who has most their wardrobe fleshed out and is trying to find the finishing touches"

It's a fair price, she doesn't overcharge. If it was the op or jsk in black I would jump on this so fast!

Having a dream dress and complaining that it's expensive when the price listed is competitive. You're lucky to even find it in this condition for this price. I get that you might not be able to afford it but then maybe set your sights within your budget.

Do people have dream dresses that they can never afford (or fit?) I'm just not that unrealistic.

I'd have to get the Elize Lutus OP altered for my bust (losing weight has done nothing for my bust size and my ribcage kind of juts out anyways, <90 cm is never going to happen) but I love it enough to get that done. Not like very many other people are interested in it anyways, I accept I'll be taking a hit if/when I resell it. Provided I even ever find it in the first place.

Also, Wish Me Mell Tea Time goes for over 1000$. I'm aware of the price and will have to justify spending that much money on one item to myself if/when it comes up. Not to mention Scarlet Primavera Waltz's price, hoo boy.

I'll save up for a dress I love be and even pay a little more if it's not something that comes up very often or maybe be a Japan exclusive print. But if I knew I could never realistically afford something even with saving, I'd cross it off my list.

>> No.9220437

This thread doesn't have a specific designation for "post here so you can buy", so I understand why people do post what they can't afford. It's because it's their dream dress; it's always possible that they'd just like to discuss it, get opinions, ask if anyone has had experiences with owning it, and maybe there's a slight chance they'll get really lucky and will find a good deal and be able to celebrate the find here. You don't have to buy your dream dress, you just have to have it as a your dream dress, which is good enough for discussion, IMO.

I think if it's really a super desired dream piece though, might as well buy it and get it altered if you know you really love it and want to wear it. Who knows, other people might have the same dreams and will pay for your altered dress just because they won't have the hassle of getting it altered themselves.

Oh, I understand. Yeah, I don't get that, either; if you don't know how much a dress even sells for then obviously you don't know too much about it. I'd expect people to know the basics of something that's their dream dress, since I'd assume they'd have at least looked it up once or twice.

>> No.9220461

CDC OP is too short-waisted for me and I don't see a way it could be altered to look ok on me because of the detailing. So some of my potential dream dresses just get left behind because of things like that...like mostly every hime style OP.

It won't have the CDC print but I really like the styling.

Not really a dress but still a huge dream item - just asking to scout out some information, but has anyone ever seen this coat in the second hand market? Or is it an incredibly rare thing to ever see pop up?

I'm gutted to say I didn't. I messaged the seller to confirm shipping to my country, she increased the price then replied to tell me it had sold.

>> No.9238813

I'm 174cm and it literally did not cover my crotch. I have Hospitality Doll and the airline JSK is wayyy shorter than that one even is. At least HD does cover my butt and a little more, but that one didn't even do that.

>> No.9238930

Are the raw edges on this intentional? Why?

ah, that's a shame. good to know that HD might be knee length on me, at least...

That's been relisted over and over the past few weeks, I don't think anyone wants it at that price.

Earlier this year in March I used Tokyo Pirates' urgent service for my dream dress in Closet Child Yokohama, and Jamie was an actual angel. She replied to my initial request in 30 min, called the store to ensure it was still there, placed a same day reservation on it (only allowed in Yokohama location, not Central Tokyo), and went there that evening. She was extremely communicative and honest throughout the whole process and even talked kindly about personal topics I had briefly mentioned, what a sweetheart. This was right before Tokyo Pirates became Accio Tokyo, so I'm not sure if the process/policies are the same now, but this was my experience and it couldn't be more lovely. Anyway, wishing you much luck and success getting your dream dress, anon!!

It was from posting in this thread alone that led me to my dream dress pic related, so I just wanted say THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH to the wonderful gulls that helped me and continue to help others, and to the rest of y'all keep following your dreams!

I would buy it at that price but not without a proof photo

I'm a nanchatte anon, always appreciated lolita but could never find a dress I thought would look that great on me outside of the older/maid style.

Then I found this... the color, silhouette, and details are perfect but I'm afraid the quality would be terrible IRL since it seems to be entirely made of chiffon and the corset looks so cheap. Back to my regularly scheduled seifukus I suppose.

Hey anon, just saw it on Lacemarket if you're still looking.

I've managed to snag all my top priority dream dresses this year so I don't really know what to do with myself now, but I'm definitely kicking myself for not picking up Diner Doll when it was on sale.

>> No.9241321

That chocolate whatever one on the bottom row has been on Y!J for a couple weeks now in that cut and color for $500. Not sure if that's the right price or not for you, but it's cheaper than what they had been going for.

>> No.9241327

Thank you so much, anon! I will keep her in mind for a future purchase. I used her service once a couple years ago and was really pleased with it, but was unsure of how much of it was still active.

I had actually contacted Takoyaki Co. and they did a really great job for me, but the dress was gone before they could get there. They responded to my email within 20 minutes and had done the search in under 2 hours from me paying them. Unfortunately the dress was gone, and it was one I'll probably never see again for that price; Echelle du Spinx, 24000.... Woe is me....

>> No.9241343

thanks anon! I know it's usually pretty pricey, it's not one of my priority dresses so for me the right price is under $300 haha. very unlikely but you never know!

>> No.9241372


Ah well. It'll be back eventually for a more reasonable price with a better seller hopefully.

CC has Searching for Baroque JSK in pink for relatively cheap (38,800 yen) if anyone's looking for it.

Has anyone noticed the price of some sought after dresses going down in the past year?

I was curious about this one too but I have had bad quality with Neverland dresses in the past and although the design on this is cool I don't really think it will be as nice as it looks.

>> No.9245559

not a newfag, I just don't feel strongly enough about it to pay big bucks for it hence it's in the 'for the right price' section.
