Hello friends! <3
Innocent World had a sale recently, so I got a few things that were half price :-D
Innocent World: Moon and Stars Embroidery Headbow (navy x gold)
Innocent World: Midnight Merry-Go-Round Diamond Lace Jsk (navy x gold)
The first headbow, I got to go with the IW carousel jsk I had posted about a few months ago. Originally I just wanted a plain, solid colored headbow. But the one I liked the most was already sold out. This one was the next best choice. I'm hoping the small decorations on it don't detract from the jsk too much when they are worn together.
As for the other headbow and jsk, they are supposed to be a matched set. Although, I think the headbow is a slightly darker shade of navy blue than the one used for the jsk. It looks a bit off to me when worn together. Maybe if I wear it with a gold star hair clip and some other gold accessories it will balance out?
As for the print on the jsk, I love the combination of the white carousel horses paired with a navy night sky. Most of the carousel horses in prints that I've seen are pastel colored and tend to draw your attention to them. The light print contrasts with the dark background and makes them seem almost ghost-like or other-worldly in a sense. There are also golden star buttons and lace trim that give an elegant feeling to the design. Constellations can also be seen in the background of the print.
I am super excited to start planning a coord for it so I can wear it soon!
