One of my great interests and hobbies is to try out macarons from around the world and in different shops. When my macaron hobby collides with my lolita one, usually it's a bad combination. There are some prints out there like "Dreaming Macaron" from Angelic Pretty that are on my 'Someday I might get it list when I strike it rich', but I always do a double-take when I see some macarons on a lolita print.
Of course, one of my Metamorphose purchases had to have macarons in them, so here we go!
This is Metamorphose's Crown Label Sweets Time (One-Piece)

At first, I thought the print was a bit overwhelming, but it really appealed to me at the same time. It's not very subtle and is a statement. Before I bought it, I asked my fellow lolita friends about their thoughts of the dress and it ended up in a 50/50 with their feedback. This dress came in two colors, a pink colorway and black, and I think black is definitely the better of the two. My sister expressed that the print was too big and loud, and thought the placement of the doughnut on the bodice might be a problem...
In the end, I wasn't deterred and bought it anyways
