EATME summer sale haul - 3 OPs, 3 tops, shoes & accessories

I have been making small orders from EATME over the last few months but have been stupidly backlogged on posts and am only now getting around to showcasing them! Some of these items I have been keeping an eye on from their initial release and I'm so excited to finally get my hands on them.

Piping double button 
パイピングダブルボタンワンピース
This didn't immediately grab my eye with the stock photos, but the staff snaps really make me a believer! I was torn between the ivory version and this black one but ended up with black because the ivory sold out in my size - and I'm not mad about it. The black will actually be a little easier to wear long term I think and the white piping is really crisp. 
The buttons and front panel are fake, so there's a zipper in the back along with some snaps. I also wasn't immediately sure about the ribbon tie and whether that would be too high on my waist, but I think it actually works pretty well. I absolutely love the pleated portion of the skirt and the asymmetry of the hem, and I can't stop twirling in it. I think this dress would be good for a number of occasions and I can't wait to wear it out. 

Flare jumperskirt in mix
フレアジャンスカ
This was a sale purchase for the sake of finding something because there was a sale, but I also wanted to try more of these midi-length hems and this seemed like a good place to start. The check pattern isn't too overwhelming and great for pairing with black items without it being overall too dark. The belt is entirely separate from the jumperskirt (no belt loops even) and it can definitely be worn on its own if you want. 
Despite being paired with the knit long sleeve in most of the styled photos, this jumperskirt is actually quite lightweight, which I wasn't expecting but will be good for seasonal transition. The little ruffle detail on the straps are super cute and matches nicely with the featured knit top's shoulder ruffles as well. 

Neck harness design OP in grey
ネックハーネスデザインワンピース
I really loved this simple design with the small added details of the choker and small side cut outs. I also really liked that there was an option to wear it off shoulder. This blue grey color was my first choice and I was lucky that it was still in stock during the sale period. I waited not so patiently to buy it for a while!
This dress is overall a lot looser than I anticipated and even a bit longer. I had to stop and check if I had accidentally purchased the M size. Even the sleeves, which I had worried that the elastic would be too tight, also  ended up quite loose which isn't too terrible. All that being said, I think it's better for it to be too loose than too tight and I still anticipate getting quite a bit of use of it. I especially like this light color paired with black.

Bow tie knit top in black
ボウタイニットTOP
I am expecting to need some long sleeve items for colder weather coming up soon, so this top seemed like a good place to start and I really liked it paired with the check jumperskirt in the stock photos. I knew I couldn't really go wrong with a solid black top with a neck ribbon tie. 
This is super easy to wear and really cute on its own! I didn't really realize that it had bell sleeves when I ordered it but that just helps balance out the small ruffles on the shoulder and is a nice additional detail for a touch of girliness. The material is smooth and not too thick and I think this will be great for my intended use. 

Decolette sweater top in black
デコルテスウェットTOP
This was another buy-because-of-sale item but one of the ones I'm most unexpectedly pleased with. This pullover sweater was paired with a longer skirt in the stock photos but the color combination between the two that I wanted was no longer in stock. I ended up with this piece in black because I anticipated it would be the most versatile and so far, I'm not wrong. 
I've worn this sweater out when we just quickly needed to run errands at night and it was perfect for that, especially paired with high waisted shorts. The only thing that could make this a little better is if it was cropped a little bit more - then I wouldn't always need to tuck it in? But on the occasions where I do want it tucked in, the length is perfect, haha. So overall, I am super happy with it. 

2-way side lace up top in white
2WAYサイドレースアップTOP
This top looked like it would be lightweight and nice during the summer season but I felt a little unsure about how bulky the side lace up would be. This is another piece that I was happy to see could easily be worn on or off shoulder and tucked in or out. 
I think with a high waisted bottom, I definitely prefer it tucked in with just the bow of the side lace up sticking out. This top is indeed very lightweight and can definitely be worn with other genres of clothing pretty easily I think, especially because the cross strap for the neck is removable!

Double strap pumps in pink
ダブルストラップパンプス
These pumps have been in the outlet for a while now but since I had the opportunity not to have to pay for Tenso shipping recently, I decided to just go for it and get them. I'm not entirely sure why they haven't been popular (especially at the 70+% off price) but they seem just like your average pink velour pumps but they also have a fur inner sole!
The fit is actually slightly big (I bought my typical size L for US size 7), but because of the straps, my foot still stays in pretty well. I anticipate wearing these most often with black socks and other EATME items. 

Cross harness belt in black
クロスハーネスベルト
I've been waiting for the right time to order this harness belt, and a 20x point campaign seemed like the best I could do in conjunction with a discount coupon. These belt accessories usually never individually go on sale, so that seemed like the best opportunity and I have been eying it since I first started buying EATME. 
The fit is actually not as tight as I was expecting in both the shoulder straps and the waist part. Both are adjustable but I'm wearing it on the smallest setting with the pre-made holes. I will still have to experiment a little more about how I want to wear it since I had tried to keep myself from buying anything that really needed this harness to complete the look but no longer have to worry about that going forward. 

EATME ring pierce in silver
EATMEリングピアス
This was an immediate wish list item. These are simple but I love the branding on them and like the size as well. How can you go wrong with a small circle hoop?
I've certainly already worn this pair of earrings multiple times since getting them. They're so easy to just slide on and matches with all EATME and darker outfits flawlessly. I am just a bit nervous about the post separating from the hoop, but overall, anticipate these will have a lot of wear. 

Rose cross masks in mix
ローズクロスマスク
I hadn't planned on getting masks, but just needed something for about 1000yen to hit the minimum for another discount (or novelty?) and it seems like wearing these will not be ending any time soon. Or, even so, it won't be weird to wear them in the future regardless. 
These masks are just slightly big on the sides, but otherwise fit nicely and without putting too much pressure on my ears. I do think they might be best paired with a disposable mask underneath but the material is nice and smooth and should be laundered easily as well. I probably won't buy a multitude of these, but am happy to just have this set for now. 

Runway Channel Aurora novelty glass cup
オーロラグラス 
I managed to figure out two orders meeting the minimum spend for the novelty glass and was able to get a pair of glasses (1 from each order). I thought it would be fun to at least have 2 for doing toasts. It's a nice, delicate looking cup with a gold rim and I think this is a really nice novelty item! I haven't gotten one in a while, so anything really is good, haha.

My blogging has definitely been slowing down lately because of some recent life updates, but I hope to get back in my typical rhythm when things hopefully settle down (crossing my fingers) in early 2022! Until then, I hope these piecemeal posts keep the blog occupied for a bit.
