Fashion Valentine: Cosma-Shanti

mintyfrills fashion valentine

Cosma-Shanti has an amazing fashion sense and can make any style work. This is my fashion valentine this week and I'm going to share some outfits of theirs that I love. If you want to check out more go follow Cosma-Shanti on instagram, tumblr, blogspot, youtube and twitter.

I think an iconic part of their style is the color combination white and red, both using it in casual outfits like this and perfectly with cult party kei also. This outfit is just so perfectly balanced. It looks both fashionable and really comfy.

Cosma-Shanti is one of my favorite people in cult party kei. The layering is amazing, even if there is tons of layering it never looks like too much. The detailing is really good too, when you look up close there are always super cute little things. Great usage of vintage clothes and mix of textures.

Going from super layered and detailed to also being really good at more minimalist looks too. They looks are simple but always look super thought out. Always super on point.

Cosma-Shanti can really pull of any style, here looking amazingly pretty in sweet lolita. This haircolor is perfectly contrasts with the outfit. The princess type lolita looks perfect on them.


I'm going to start posting a Fashion Valentine every Sunday, so be sure to check back!

Angelic Pretty x Disney Collections

mintyfrills sweet lolita fashion kawaii cute

Angelic Pretty has done quite a few collaborations with Disney thru the years and I wanted to make this post to show you some of them! The most popular motif has been Alice in wonderland but there has also been some with Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck and Disney princesses. 

mintyfrills sweet lolita fashion kawaii cute
2012 Angelic Pretty released this print for the 110th Disney Anniversary. I really love Alice in wonderland and its pretty cute that they used the characters so straight off but I wish that they would of done something more with the boarder print, I feel like the characters are really just slapped on there because there is nothing to frame them in. I think there just could of been more details, like have a bit more fun with it. The cut is very simple for the pricetag, it looks like special set/lucky pack quality. The sax colorway is really cute, I like the pink detailing. The white colorway just looks really cheap, I think its the black lace on a white dress that is the worst. Its really a too simple and plain print to work in a white colorway, I think red could of been better.

This is an other Alice in wonderland dress that they released. I think this one is much better. It looks more like a typical Angelic Pretty dress, it has the details that the other one lacked and the colors are more subtle. It has a nice boarder in a good scale to the rest of dress. The cuts are really cute too, I would probably take off the apron though. The sax color feels the cutest because it looks more like a Alice dress. All in all super cute.

They also made this cute dress, its a pretty simple cut without a boarder print. I think the whole set would be cute together. The beret is really cute too. It's a simple dress but it is also is much cheaper than other lolita dresses!

I love this cute collection with Minnie and Daisy, the illustrations are so amazing and they did a great job making that unicorn illustration into a plush bag. I have that unicorn bag and I love it, makes any outfit more cute! I love AP doing more casual things in collabs is cool too. I would love the backpack.

They also made a special set of things with Rapunzel from the movie Tangled, the print is called dreamy luna! It has pictures of  Rapunzel and the rest of the print is a sky with clouds and the floating lights from the movie. I really like this set, its like an other version of dream sky.

They also made this really pretty dress with classic disney princesses, I love all the colors in the print and it looks really magical, the tote and cape are not so interesting but the dress is just super cute. It really just goes together, the ribbon in the front is cute too.


I think its really fun when different brands make collaborations because it can bring out the best of two worlds. I hope they do more in the future! Since I love both Angelic Pretty and Disney. ~

Angelic Pretty: Magic Princess Release

sweet lolita fashion kawaii cute mintyfrills

Angelic Pretty are starting up their line up of spring releases with Magic Princess! I actually really love this print, it looks like magic sand castles. 

Print
The print is really cute and has so many nice details. I like the star detailing at the bottom and I think the boarder print has a nice scale. The scepters with unicorns, stars and other motifs really pulls the boarder together with the rest of the print that has chandeliers and stars hanging down. Finally a print that doesn't feel like a new version of something they already did before. I like that the sax version has pink stars on the bottom, prints with contrasting colors is really my thing. All the colorways look super cute actually. I'm just totally on board with this concept.

Cuts
I think the cuts are really pretty too. The Op has really nice detailing, I think the sheer sleeves will look really cute with this print, I like that the bow on the top is in a contrasting color, I hope it is so on the other colorways too. The jsk with the button detailing is nice but the buttons looks a bit just thrown on there, I think it needs more detailing around the buttons. I like the second jsk but this cut makes it harder to find a blouse that suits it I think. The star buttons look cute though. Its too bad that the bottom part of the dress is super plain on them, a little more trim and frills on at least one of them would of been cuter. All in all I think they are still cute.

I really look forward to seeing people coord this print, I think it would work perfectly with ott sweet. There are so many options for making custom made pieces to go with it. I just hope that someone makes a scepter or perhaps a castle headpiece? I hope I can someday get my hands on this!

Angelic Pretty: Milky Planet and Dreamy Babyroom special sets

sweet lolita fashion mintyfrills print

They are releasing a Milky Planet special set for the sale in Tokyo. As many of you might know this is one of my favorite prints! The cut seems to be very plus size friendly with full shirring on the back and additional front shirring. Both dresses have the same cut! They make the cut more simple for the special sets so that they can sell it cheaper, but I think milky planet loses sooo much without the scalloped bottom part. It was the same with the rerelease earlier, didn't have it. With Dreamy Babyroom I just think its too bad that they picked a black colorway. I generally don't like black colorways with pale prints. Though I'm just happy that there will be more ott sweet prints available. They are released in store today.

To Alice: Ice Doll

mintyfrills sweet lolita fashion kawaii

To Alice has released a dress called Ice Doll and I think that it is super cute! I seldom really like taobao print dresses but this one has what I like about Angelic Pretty but without being a copy in any way. Its like the lovechild of Toy Parade and Sugar Dream Dome. The cuts are nice, I don't like the overlay but its removable so it really doesn't matter much to me that its there. The fluffy collar is also removable. Even though the OP is cute I would go for the jsk for versatility. If you are new OP's can be great though because you have the whole outfit and don't have to think about getting a matching blouse.

I like the light colorway a lot more, I generally dislike really dark colorways of this type of light print. The print is really sweet, toys in a ice theme dress is a great idea. And I love that it has a rocking horse (big fan of those). The print is not too messy and had a good color balance. Its really nice that they have a really cute bottom lace but I feel like some more detailing at the bottom would of improved it, its a bit to simple with the design of the rest of the dress. All in all I think its really worth the price tag and a good option if buying Angelic Pretty feels a bit too expensive. I might just get it myself at some point!

I think this print is really cute, it reminds me of the castles that you have with magic sand! I hope the print isn't as pale as in these pictures. I wonder what more colors there will be. I think blue would look really pretty.

I just love donuts, so this is really cute to me. I like that the print is in better scale. The mint colorway is really pretty.

I'm just really tired of the religious symbols and the virgin mary style with veils and such. And I don't really like overlays, it being longer than the dress just makes it worse. The jsk without the overlay is pretty cute.

This is the special Imai Kira collab that they had for reservation at the big teaparty with the fashion show. I think its really cute as always. The scale of the print is really cute. I think it can be coorded in many different ways, both sweet and more classic

Harlequinade Ballet
There is not really any clear pictures of this dress but it has potential. I really like the colors of the one in the closeup. I'm a big fan of contrasting pastels. Can't wait to see better pictures.

Melty Sky
Another sky type print. It really resembles Dream Sky, which is not a bad thing. Its a much better design than Misty Sky that they recently released. Also the stripe star bag looks really cute!

Strawberry Garden
There is no surprise that there are two new berry prints since berry prints are Asuka's favorite motif. The strawberries look so cute, and the frills on it are so pretty.

Wrapping Cherry
This is a simple but very cute design its like a mix of wrapping ribbon and drained cherry. It would suit otome and more casual styles. The heart bag is also super cute.


There are more prints coming and I will make a new post once I have clear pictures of them!
