The Expensive Coordinate - Total: ~$495
|Lost in the Portrait Forest|
OP - Alice and the Pirates
Tights - Putumayo
Shoes - Modcloth
Necklace - Moss Märchen
Wig - Lockshop
Hairbow - Alice and the Pirates
Naturally the most expensive parts of this outfit are the OP and the shoes with the rest of the items fairly similar in price. Though these are not necessarily my most expensive pieces all together, these are the most expensive items that I own which still fit together into a halfway decent coordinate. The cream color of the Innocent Rosier OP makes it a bit harder to coordinate with some of my more expensive accessories. I tried to keep the color palette fairly toned down and stuck to only chocolates and wines as my colors with hints of true white as an accent. I have not yet worn this coordinate out, but after laying it out and photographing it, I would certainly love to take it out for a spin. I absolutely adore how comfortable this OP is and need more chances to wear it out and about. I finally got a chance to take the tights for a test drive at Anime Boston and loved how they added a quirky little twist to my otherwise rather simple coord.
The Inexpensive Coordinate - Total: ~$180
|A Crown for the Sunflower Prince|
OP - Innocent World
Blouse - UNIQLO
Shoes - Modcloth
Headband - Forever 21
Tights & Accessory - Offbrand
The tights in this coord simply did not want to stay flat for photographs, but aside from the anorexic leg look we have going on, I can comfortably say that I wear something like this quite often. I got the OP for a steal because the front button ties were missing despite the rest of it being in perfect condition. The blouse is one of my favorite offbrand finds and goes for between $15 and $30 depending on UNIQLO's weekly promotions. The boots are actually quite costly, but they go best with this particular OP than basic flats in my opinion. The little flower pin clip was a gift from a previous buyer and I love to add them to my lapels for an extra bit of color. Keeping it simple and bright with this 'romp-around-town' kind of look.
