Classic Lolita: 'Lacy Drape Pinafore Dress' by Metamorphose temps de fille

Back-to-the-basics Lolita, this dress, in all its simplicity, is actually quite a rare find nowadays as the trend has seemingly shifted towards lace trimmings instead of making it the whole point of the garment. Also, I don't think you can get more traditionally romantic than this. 

All-lace dresses are often tricky in that it's very easy to just make them look like you forgot to wear the actual dress and prance around in your lingerie only; generally, I'm pro that, but I feel it's not a very good display of good taste. Here the top half definitely invokes undergarment-y associations, but the classic Lolita bell shape balances it out.

Black, white, or pale pink, here.
