The first one is actually pretty cute, second one would be decent without the wand and that awful hair accessory, third one is yikes in every possible way.

They're all awful. All Yumi ever does is to put on a dress, the same pair of shoes and then maybe with a bit of luck a wig. She never uses any accessories whatsoever (except for head accessories), there's no jewelry, no bags, no nothing. I never wore lolita myself, but every time I had friends stay over for conventions who wore lolita properly, it were the accessories that took the longest to put on, to coordinate them properly and to decide where to put everything and where it looks best. Pins and necklaces and bows, gloves and bracelets...

If I wanna see someone wearing only the plain dress, I'll go on shopping pages, what Yumi does still isn't lolita. She's wearing lolita style dresses, but she's definitely not wearing full lolita outfits.

i actually don't mind the lack of accessories that much. it looks a bit plain but it's okay for me, but i think the only good outfit is the first one with the wig. idk much about lolita, so i may be wrong, but straight long black hair doesn't really fit the lolita image in my opinion, bc all the dresses are so fluffy and frilly and a curled (maybe colored) wig with volume would suit those outfits much more

and wigs suits her quite good anyways, bc the bangs on wigs looks nice and frames her face well, so she doesn't look that round

What also lacks her "coords" is a theme.

She just slaps items together that have colors in the same spectrum and calls it a day, the picture in the middle is a perfect example lmao.

That fucking dress has a piano keys + cats print. Why the fuck is she pairing it with that snowflake headpiece and a rose wand? Makes no sense at all, but to her it matches simply because white and pink :B (She once paired that dress with some ugly ass 3D cat pouch as well...because cat oof). Also don't get me started with the blouse asdfgkskw.

The last one could have been a very cute Classic Lolita coord if she would make some hair updo with braids and stuff, slap some ribbon on there and then complete the whole thing with a vintage bag in the color of her shoes...which she definitely owns, you can see her bags in the last closet tour video she made last year.

The first one is "okay" on its own as there's something going on on that dress, some cute frilly handcuffs wouldn't hurt with that dress tho. And maybe a matching necklace.

But I agree with @Qualle that she is ALWAYS lacking accessories, it also bothered me back in the days when she was wearing her cheap plastic sponsor clothing -only-. In the end it doesn't matter which fashion style you wear, accessories are essential for perfecting outfits and giving final touches :alpacaheadshake:

What usually bothers me is over-accesorising lolita not under-accesorizing.  Better to look a bit plane, but decent and elegant, than put on everything you own and look like a traveling salesman. Putting on too much always makes it look like you're someone really poor trying to look wealthy, if that makes sense.

But outfits these ain't it anyways.

Yumi SHUT UP you are very thin and it doesn't matter where in the world you are.  Ribs aren't supposed to be that prominent.

 

She is just "skinny fat" that is not real "fat" just little out of shape. (For those who do not know)

None of these are coordinates. But I will try to analyze them without mentioning "cheap", or "ita", even though they really are.

Only the first one has potential ,in my opinion, just because the dress looks pretty well matched with that wig and the bow ties, but the shoes...nope. I don't like seeing titanium white being paired with warm white and the pearls make no sense to me. Still needs a hair accessory, like a bonnet of the same color and ,ideally but optional, the same pattern, a bag...but not a tacky bunny shaped bag please...a bracelet or maybe even some white lace short gloves with same looking socks. 

Second "coord" same shoes but they match a bit better this time. Please burn that wand. The head piece is from a whole other story...The black hair doesn't bother me because it goes with the black cat theme but do something with it..dunno at least curl it. Again, no bag...no other accessories...

In the third one the shoes are ok with that dress (but she kept the useless pearls again) and the bow in the back is horrible. The black hair...I don't know...A brown wig would work better...or...ok keep your natural hair but ,again, do something with it.

Conclusion...There is no much to say about her outfits because she barely did anything. I am not asking her to become OTT (over the top) ,but you can't just pair a dress with some shoes and call it a day. You can't just pair similar shades of the same color together. You can't let your hair like you just woke up in the morning and add some horrible clip-on bangs. Especially when you are trying to EDUCATE your viewers. If you are showing 3 examples of coords at least use different styles? For now there are 2 sweet coords and a classic one. Or at least use different items...you wore the white shoes twice and the hosiery for all the coords... 

Yumi, I know you are lazy and usually you wouldn't even try to do the bare minimum ,so at least I am going to appreciate that you've achieved the bare minimum with this video. Being a lolita is not easy, i know, takes time...Bodyline is ok for begginers...but you keep on trying for years...so...yeah.

I’m a sweet lolita (attached pics for credibility LOL) and i would probably give her this concrit, had she posted these coordinates anywhere else outside of YouTube:

Coord #1

This is the only outfit with potential. Her dress is cut almost in the style of an apron, so I think she’d benefit from pairing her jumper skirt with a longer sleeved blouse. The shorter style is actually harder to see due to the ruffles along the side of her dress

I actually like the dusty rose / lavender color of the wig, but I feel like it needs more volume, and she could have used more accessories, such as bows or hair clips matching the style of her print, to bring out the other colors, like the sax and mint. There are so many cute decora jewelry pieces online in the shape of the sweets in her dress - this is such a missed opportunity to showcase the print design.

White wristcuffs, frilly ankle socks and sax shoes would pull this look together and make it cohesive. 

Coord #2

As others have stated above, what Yumi struggles with the most is color balance and theming. She’s pairing a basic Bodyline cat print with hime-inspired pieces, which is causing this outfit to look like a mess.

The color white appears to be her safety net? I’d love to see Yumi pair this dress with a simple black blouse, black tights, and matching pink shoes. The pearl headdress and scepter can be discarded, as they don’t contribute to the overall theme. She could really play up the piano theme with a cute novelty bag and jewelry. 

Coord #3

One piece dresses are difficult to coordinate because we can’t use many separates. However, Yumi could’ve worn a bolero or cardigan in a matching color - perhaps the wine or cream / ivory shade? 

A braided updo would’ve been rather stylish and appropriate for the classic vibes of the dress. The white tights she’s worn in all three outfits works the best here. 

She doesn’t need to wear all brand to be a lolita, and even though I’ve been in the fashion for over a year, I still have a small wardrobe compared to most. However, it’s how she challenged her creativity that counts and I just ... am shocked that she’s been touting herself as a lolita for so long, but still doesn’t have have the best grasp. This is especially important because she’s sharing her knowledge with her viewers and I would hate for lolita to be misrepresented:(

big mood.


I feel like she's gotten a lot more boring though lately? Still not pregnant, Splenda legal drama over, and it seems like she isn't including him in videos now? "Watch me try on cheap outfits" can only be entertaining so many times.

New video where she makes something; I didn’t watch the video but I did read some of the comments on it and most were pretty happy that she’s going back to this.

She probably caved in to making stuff again since her views plummeted hard.
