Lolita has many constants in the aesthetic but there are always fads that come and go. Wigs are big right now, deer and fawns were popular, and head dresses used to all the rage. Amidst all these comings and goings one things that has stuck around is stars. They are everywhere in Lolita. They are popular in prints in accessories and why not? They are super cute and have really positive ideas and feelings connected to them. Stars make me think of dreams, goals, flying, wishes, light, and happiness.
Angelic Pretty is the brand that uses stars the most I believe. They love making prints with stars sprinkled around and making jewelry with twinkling stars. So much of their jewelry looks like candy with the pretty pastel colors that they use. I love it. What I wouldn't give for every star themed piece of jewelry that they made. Angelic Pretty always has a bit of a funky thing going on that I like. A very young and playful feeling.
As much as AP is funky, Baby the Stars Shine Bright is lovely and elegant. So much of their stuff makes me feel like a princess, like a lady. The above star necklace and rings are so pretty. The soft glowing gold, pearls, and the pink B logo go so well together. These two pieces bring together some of my favorite things in jewelry. Pearls! I love pearls. Plus, they look so good with gold and pink. Pink is my favorite color. It is so girly and goes so well with Lolita.
The infamous Chocomint Star 2-way clip. I don't know how and why it caught on like it did but Lolitas can not get enough of this clip. I kind of feel like I might be half a Lolita because I don't have one. I must admit that they are super cute. I love that it is a brooch and a hair clip. Versatility. I have been making pastel resin stars and I think they could make a cute clip like these ones. I might just make my own instead of buying the original. Why not?
Lolita bags are the best! One day when I don't wear Lolita for whatever reason I think I will still use the bags. They are just too cool. There is such a range, from sweet to goth, there are just so many to choose from. The two above are two that I would really like to own in the future. I have a small collection of Lolita bags and I don't think any of them are stars. These are made by Loris and you can pick them up on QutieLand.
