This week’s prompt is 3 Favorite Brands and Why (Japanese, Taobao, and Indie). It’s really hard for me to pick clear favorites since I always have multiple favorites… but I’ll name the first favorite that pops into my mind from each category!
Favorite Japanese Brand
My favorite Japanese brand is hard to choose, but the first thing that pops into my head is Baby, the stars shine bright! There are so many different designs from BTSSB, and they fit a variety of styles.
Here is my favorite dress from BTSSB in my wardrobe:
I love its simplicity and elegance. The embroidered polka dots are adorable, and the puffed sleeves are perfect. I love the flattering cut of the dress and the double ruffles at the hem. The bow details are lovely too!
Below, you’ll see my favorite BTSSB printed item in my wardrobe:
I just adore the little macarons and cute frosting details. This dress also has a very flattering cut! And, it’s easy to coordinate. I hope I can add more BTSSB items to my wardrobe…
Favorite Taobao Brand
My favorite Taobao brand is probably Chess Story. I only own one item from them, but it’s one of my favorite dresses in my wardrobe. I will NEVER sell this dress (unless something terrible happens and I desperately need money). But I would never willingly sell this beautiful JSK.
The cut is flattering, the color combination is perfect, and the rose print is so crisp! The stripes are an amazing touch as well. This JSK is so wonderfully balanced and looks lovely for both casual wear and OTT coordinates.
I just love wearing this dress! I hope I can get another Chess Story dress at some point in the future…
Favorite Indie Brand
My favorite Indie brand is Lady Sloth! I only ever owned one item from this brand, but I absolutely loved that JSK! Sadly, I sold that JSK already (because I was trying to attain one of my dream dresses). However, if I have the chance, I would love to buy something from Lady Sloth! The designs are so beautiful and elegant. I especially love their gothic-style prints and their art prints!
The photo above depicts the lovely Lady Sloth JSK I once owned. It was made from a soft, comfy jersey-like material. It was stretchy and partially shirred, and the print was detailed and vibrant. I loved the lace on the hem too! I miss this JSK a lot… Maybe someday I can get a similar JSK from Lady Sloth!

You have such beautifully done outfit photos! Can I ask what petticoat(s) you were wearing in your BTSSB outfit? It has such the perfect shape of poof!
Thank you so much! Sure. I’m wearing my Classical Puppets petticoat layered over another Classical Puppets petticoat that my friend let me borrow for the photoshoot. (So two petticoats!)
Aha! Thanks so much ^_^ I’m currently on the hunt for new petticoats, haha, that’s super helpful!
I normally don’t wear two petticoats at once. xD I wanted the shape to be poofier than my one petticoat since I had a photoshoot scheduled… so luckily my friend let me borrow hers! I do love the Classical Puppets petticoat, so I would recommend that. 😀
Oo fantastic, thank you! I’ll definitely check it out ^_^
You’re very welcome! Thanks so much for commenting. ^_^
I love the first and second dress you have! Baby always releases beautiful prints 🙂
Thanks so much! Baby is awesome!~
If you want an A-line petticoat, Classical Puppets also has AN AMAZING A-line monster petticoat. It’s SO POOFY and wonderful: https://aliceinlolitaland.wordpress.com/2013/02/12/classical-puppets-a-line-petticoat-review/
I like those brands too ❤
Awesome! 😀 Do you have a favorite?
