Let's Talk Coordinates! Fall Edition

If you follow us on social media you know we are obsessed with all things fall! Warm, rich browns, crisp reds, vibrant golds, we find everything about this season suits our frilly fashion perfectly. Even the weather suits the layers upon layers Lolita fashion incorporates into every coordinate, which is why we wanted to talk about dressing for the season!

Whether your want to garner inspiration from the colors around you, or the dropping temperatures, making your coordinate suit you is the best part!
