This time I choose to do coordinate practice with a dress I just finished. My last gasp of winter feeling :D hoping it will start feeling spring like (I live in the USA southwest so it's already like 50 degrees).
The gray and black of this dress play as neutrals and makes it open to lots of coordination options. Too many really XD I had to cut a few of my less favorites. This dress also has detachable pin back bows and waist ribbon so those provide a great way to suit the dress to whatever other items are in the outfit.
Simple perfect for the first days of warmth. I think I would swap the plainer shoes for ruffley maryjanes.

Softing the darker pallete of the dress with pinkness and fluffy texture :)

Playful and casual with a sparkle of color.
-Black purse (might swap for a cream one :\)
-Purple glitter ruffle flats
Makeup: Soft shimmer green eye, light peach blush, berry lip.

The combo of soft color and simple design lets the texture of the JSK come out. Sorry this one kind of blends with the background.
-Mint and black bows
-Mint candy bracelet (which rolled out of shot ;p)
Hair: High odango bun, or twin tail wig
Makeup: Soft winged eyeliner with big lashes, Light silver/rose blush, glossed lip
Black dominates this coord with touches of pink and red to give it a playful elegance.
-Black velvet cape
-Black wedges with red clips
-Pearl sweets bracelet
Makeup: Light smokey eye w/ pink on the brow bone, pale pink cheek, matte lip.
Hair: Ribbon laced long braids
playing up the gray! And with the brimless hat and heels gives off a more mature touch.
-Black t-strap heels
Makeup: Smokery eye with silver liner, deep berry lip
Hair: Low off to the side messy bun
An oldschool look, with a simple color palette it gives off a neat and polished look easily.
Makeup: natural with heavily blushed cheeks
Hair: soft waves, or glossy straight.
A fun non loli way to dress up. Blouseless and sockless make this JSK a fun quirky party dress.
-Wine ribbon bow
-Peep toe heels
-Bow/ pearl clip
Fun, bright, a little silly and casual. Covering the top of a dress is a great way to change the mood of a coord.
-Snow dot tights
-Snow dot scarf
-Grey brown Boots
Makeup: Light eye, peach cheek, candy pink lip
Hair: Teased ponytails
I'm pretty happy with these :) but I didn't end up with anything very gothic toned. Overall this JSK tends to make be think of gretel and sleepy little cottages in the woods.
