Candy Violet Lavender Dress, Oh How I Love Thee.

  OK.  Yesterday I saw this dress on LolitaLover  and today I saw it on this post on Egl.  I think it is calling out to me.
I fell in love with it the very instant I saw it.  The color, and fabric, and small decorative ruffles, and sweet heart top, and everything else is just perfect.  I have to say that I am super bummed out that I did not come up with this design. 
I hopped onto the Candy Violet shop to see how much it was and almost fell over when I saw the price, $500!  Eeeeeeeeek.  Having a Bachelors in Fashion Design I can usually understand the pricing of most dresses but I feel this particular one is a bit much.  I have to guess that a large chunk of the price has to come from the price of the fabric alone.  On the page I could not find what kind of fabric it was so I can't say but I hope it is very nice.  The only thing that I don't like is the back.  It is very plain compared to the rest of the dress.

I love it so much but I also do not have $500 to burn so I think I might make my own.  Perhaps I will add a few of my own ideas and make a few adjustments but I need this dress in one form or another.  I think  I will add ruffles to the back of the skirt, in a swirly pattern along the bottom of the skirt.  Here are more pictures of the amazing dress in all of its glory.  Enjoy!


  1. I absolutely LOVE this dress (except the back). Even though I don't really like lavender personally--I think it makes it seem so much more surreal.

  2. that is a gorgeous dress with such a lovely colour! It is pricie but I guess it is very worth it!

  3. I love this dress too! If I ever had a spare 500$ laying around that I didn't want to use for traveling to Japan, I'd buy it haha!

  4. That's amazing. Even though it's lolita, it's kind of subtle. It could pass as formal wear!

  5. I love it! The back is too plain for me, so I can't see spending $500 on it....Wah! It's so pretty though!
