♡ Liz Lisa 2021 'Sweet Bear Gelato' & 'Chocolate Gateau' prints review ♡

 Good morning chocolate bears...!♡

After a few months hiatus due to struggling with tough events in my life, I finally got back to writing this post, and cannot wait to share a little review and try-on of Liz Lisa's newest prints for their summer and autumn collections, Sweet Bear Gelato and Chocolate Gateau...!~ Both prints feature an adorable dessert, ribbon and bear theme, but with different colour palettes and an adorable attention to detail. The bear designs are also quite different on each print, so I'm very excited to talk about the differences in style and my thoughts on them...꒰⑅ˊ͈ ˙̫ ˋ͈⑅꒱

One of my coordinates with sweet bear gelato..!

Sweet Bear Gelato skirt ♡ Pink colourway

This print was so, so exciting to see, as I absolutely adore parfait designs (hence, my insta handle...) as well as this shade of pink being an all time favourite of mine...!♡

For this print, I decided to choose the skirt♡ This was primarily because I intend to wear this in all types of weather, especially in winter with cosy pink jumpers as it's just too cute for one season! ꒰。 › ·̮ ‹ 。꒱ 

The parfait and ice cream illustrations are just so dreamy cute! Heart shaped strawberries, chocolate and sprinkles adorn the bear shaped ice cream, with delicate cherry, biscuit and peach details. The little bear eating her pink (also bear!) shape ice cream even has little heart shaped paws and a pink bow, so so adorable...!~

I adore how many types of ice cream there are! The mason jar is such a cute idea, but the classic cone is also so beautiful. Looking at this print makes you wonder if it's meant to be a window display, or perhaps a table spread?꒰´꒳`∗꒱

This print also features one of my favourite lace details, with little hearts that match the buttons! I'm also obsessed with the soft underskirt, it's so comfy and pretty...♡

I also absolutely adore the pink gingham background print, especially with the sweet heart and ribbon embellishments~♪ Pink, purple and white flowers adorn the bottom of the skirt, giving the print a summery look ꒰´꒳`∗꒱ 

I also thought I'd share the first code I put together with this piece!

Blouse: Lodispotto

StellaLou Earrings: Hong Kong DisneyLand

Socks: offbrand

Ribbon Bracelet: Ted Baker

StellaLou Bear: Tokyo DisneySea

This code was so much fun to put together, although I'd love to coordinate this print with ribbon accessories and a more ornate blouse for an even girlier look. Regardless, it's still fun to experiment combining different pieces, and finding versatile ways to wear them!~

Another code that i put together included the same skirt with irregular choice x Sanrio little twin stars shoes, a pink Liz Lisa jumper and my melody hair ties…! This was a little more experimental, but i liked how the colours looked together

The second print that I am absolutely in love with is Chocolat Gateau (or, as I call it, Liz Lisa’s chocolate bear print!) For this piece, I chose the one piece as the ruffles and centrepiece ribbon looked so cute~

The background of the dress is actually little pink chocolate squares, which looks so cute and unique! I really love how creative Liz Lisa were with this print 
♡ The words ‘romantic’, ‘chocolate’ and ‘sweet’ are also scattered across the print in chocolate coloured font, with little hearts, roses and chocolate covered strawberries! How delectable… 

And of course, the light pink ribbon is adorable…!
 ꒰´꒳`∗꒱ I also wanted to point out that the gold heart buttons also have a chocolate pattern on them, which is so perfect. The collar of the dress also has this beautiful ruffle detail, which gives it such a cute and indulgent feel. 

One of the loveliest details of the dress is the collection of sweet treats featured at the bottom of the dress. Chocolates, cupcakes, strawberries and of course chocolate gateau cake…!
The teddies featured on the print have an adorable vintage look to them, and look a lot like Steiff bears to me. The same golden ‘LL’ pendant adorned across the ribbon is also on the bear’s ribbon, which just looks too cute ꒰⑅ᵕ༚ᵕ꒱˖♡

And as always, Liz Lisa made sure to include adorable details to the sleeves by adding this precious pink ribbon and rose lace…! 
Even as someone who prefers longer sleeves, I can’t help but love the girly and sweet look that these puff sleeves give the dress~

For my coordinate with this dress, I didn’t really incorporate many bear themes other than the phone case, but instead just included accessories i loved and felt like wearing that day! Sometimes it’s easy to think you have to make everything match perfectly in order for a coordinate to be cohesive, but honestly it’s a lot more fun to just wear the pieces you feel happiest in…!
♡ I adored wearing this print with my melo and pink accessories ꒰ •͈́ ̫ •͈̀ ꒱

Dress: Liz Lisa

Pink ribbon clips: Liz Lisa 

My melody face mask: Sanrio store Tokyo

Thank you so much for reading, and I hope this post does some justice to showing how lovely these prints are…!

Although I can’t say when my next post will be, I just wanted to thank everyone who has sent such kind messages and been so supportive of me during this time. Although living without my baby Arthur is painful, and my mental/physical health is not the best, I’m more determined than ever to keep moving forward, trying to focus on the positive and helping those around me who are also dealing with difficult situations. Things can (and will!) get better. 

Sending you all lots of love and healing energy~
