Ever since Metamorphose announced their Fancy Egg collection, I was obsessed. There something about the print that I loved but at that point I didn't have the money to be ordering anything from Metamorphose, so Fancy Egg ended up on my wish list.
(The pics for this post were a bit dark since I was loosing light, so I apologize for that!)
|Another Metamorphose order!
However, in February while perusing their website, I noticed that they still had the shirred version of the skirt in pink and blue! From what I knew before, they only had pink left, so I chalked it up to being unfortunate. After I discovered that blue was still in stock, I went ahead and bought the skirt along with the matching diamond print socks!
Metamorphose was having their Spring Fair and were offering a cute notebook to be included in orders that exceeded a certain amount of yen. Along with the notebook, I also received a paper Metamorphose bag! I usually get the hot pink plastic bag, so this was a pleasant surprise, but it was a bit dented from the shipping process.
|Spring Fair notebook!
The notebook has Fancy Bunny as the cover, which was another release Meta had in Jan/Feb for their Crown Label collection. It's cute and I'm not sure when or if I'll use it because I have so many other notebooks that I have to use!
|Fancy Egg OTK socks
The over the knee socks have the blue diamond print that runs the length of the socks and at the bottom you see the lovely Metamorphose swan 'egg' and logo. The design has some gold threads woven into it so it glimmers a bit at certain angles. I thought it was funny because they called these socks "Pale Pink" when the only pink on the socks is isolated on the eggs. The socks are white and blue. . . Metamorphose, sometimes I don't understand you! Haha!
(Thankfully I could read the Japanese and it said light pink and ice blue...)
|Fancy Egg Mini Skirt
The skirt and print were exactly what I expected and the print really exceeded my expectations. This is the "ice blue" colorway and I also thought the green colorway was beautiful too, but I preferred blue in the beginning when the collection went up for reserve. This is the "Mini skirt" version. They had another skirt but the waist band was not shirred at all. The waistband it fully shirred for the mini and stretches very wide. It is lined with light blue polyester lining and the fabric is a medium weight cotton material. The lace is gold and more subtle and fine than some of the other skirts that I own. I like how it's understated and allows the print to shine more!
|Fancy Egg details
The Faberge eggs and motifs in the design are so lovely. There are swans incorporated into the eggs and lots of intricate details with the gems and jewelry pieces. The top portion of the skirt has the harlequin diamond print motif (not shown in the picture above) and the bottom has a subtle print of swan lace for the hem.
|A carriage egg! >_<!
I noticed on a small jewelry case there was a unicorn! How cunning of Metamorphose to add that in since it's one of their trademarks besides their swans! I especially love the jeweled teddy bear and that carriage egg.
I'm really happy that I decided to purchase this skirt and even though I still feel I would like to get a JSK of this design, I can settle on having this skirt! I can't wait to wear it!
Until next time!
