So recently, as well as getting a new pair of glasses (which incidentally I think complement lolita a lot better than my old ones. Success!) I got a new Meta jumperskirt! I ordered it on October 1st, and I finally got my hands on it on October 18th! The delay was due to Parcel Force not realising I had paid for my import fees. In the end, I had to go to the depot to enquire about my package. I was very fearful it had somehow been lost but all was well, and within a couple of minutes, a box was brought out to me!
I have never received a Meta order in a box before, so this had me somewhat intrigued. I soon found out the purpose of the box however, when the dress came on a hanger!
Anyway, to find out how I got on with it, please watch the unboxing video I made about it!
There are one or two things I completely forget to mention due to my excitement! I found that the dress fit me perfectly, and would thus not recommend it for anyone with a bigger bust than 90 cm. It was such a relief that it fit me as the measurement listed on the website was only 86 cm. This dress definitely isn't as accommodating as a lot of other Meta pieces.
The dress is lined with dark blue fabric, and there is no built in petticoat.
The cameos depict lots of different things-- upside down cat faces, "M"s in a fancy gothic font, crowns, angels, and cherubs. It's a surprisingly detailed print and looks very beautiful in person. Underneath the collar, at the neckline of the dress, is a gold braid trim which looks really pretty. The collar itself is rather fiddly, but I can deal with it for this wonderful jumperskirt.
Overall, I am so glad I took the plunge and got this dress! I love when Meta makes vintage inspired dresses, and I especially love collars like these so it was the perfect purchase for me.
A quick trying-on photo, so please excuse the (smudged!) mirror picture! I love how nicely this jumperskirt drapes.
Now to find matching accessories for this tricky dark blue/green colour...
Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoyed the video! ❤
