ivory music note long sleeve OP

Item Name:

Petit Chien OP

Brand:

Innocent World

Release Date:

2005

The name of this OP is such a mystery. Why 'petit chien?' It's french for 'little dog' but there are no dogs on this print. I wondered if perhaps the music around the collar was a song about a little dog, but it appears to be just random notes chosen to look aesthetic, rather than a real piece of music. The mystery continues! When I first saw this OP I thought it was hideous, so naturally it became a dream dress for me a few weeks later. I was horrified to find the sales listing had been deleted! I searched for it again for months with no luck until randomly the same seller relisted it! It's hard to tell in photos, but the music notes and trim are dark brown rather than black. The large music note on the skirt is flocked. The music note embroidered collar is detatchable, with a smaller plain collar underneath for a more understated look. My favourite thing about this dress is the shape of the sleeves.
