It's been a month, but I'm finally posting about my two latest Liz Lisa orders!
I received the first order on 12/31 after ordering it on 12/25. I was super surprised how quickly my order was processed and shipped, not only by VENT but also by Tenso and my local post office. I think I just managed to miss the rush.
Check Romper in beige (122-6041-0)
Scallop U-neck Knit in white (120-3009-0)
My second order came in the same day as my LLxMM collab carry fukubukuro and which is the reason for the delay in this post lol. I ordered it on 12/31/2013, and I received it on 1/11. It is also a lucky pack in a sense, and I wasn't sure what to expect although I did have high hopes. I do like the bag a lot. It's not extremely well made but it's adequate, and I like to have cheaper/not as expensive bags that are still cute for going to the beach or being outdoors so I don't have to fuss over them.
Happy Winter Tote (130-0502-0) contents:
Crochet pull-over -
It's not horrible and definitely not something I would have bought for myself so it's interesting to see. Seems good for layering/being a basic item. I think it's from 2013 spring/summer? I'm currently listing this top in my storenvy in case you're interested. I don't think there's anything wrong with this piece specifically - it's just not something I see myself using often and don't want it to waste by just sitting on my clothes rack! I don't like to uselessly hoard clothes, and I'd much rather see it go to a home where it can actually be worn. Price negotiable (especially if you read my blogspot posts :3)!
pink ruffle top I had from the LLxMM LP (now sold). Mostly only wearing it this way to show the entirety of the shorts. I'm keeping these shorts for now but aren't really planning on wearing them any time soon, so if you're interested, make me an offer. When I wear shorts/casual wear, I tend to stick to the same Hollister shorts over and over again so I will unlikely even think of these as a regular option.
High neck long sleeve OP -
SIGH. Another long sleeve item, but seriously what was I expecting?...honestly though there were a few short sleeve autumn/winter items released and the top from the tote isn't even from autumn/winter so idk. Okay, anyway, this is definitely not something I would have bought for myself based purely on the fact that it's long sleeved. When I first saw it in the plastic wrapping I thought it was a different dress and was pleased until I actually unwrapped the entire thing. I don't mind the way it looks on me (and actually quite like this picture lol) but I just do not see any reason to keep long sleeve items in my wardrobe. It's listed in my storenvy. Again, price negotiable. Nothing wrong with it, just doesn't vibe with the weather where I live, so no sense hold onto it. (Now sold, thank you!)
Overall, not really pleased with the Happy Winter Tote, but I suppose it could have been a lot worse. I have to remind myself to stop buying these things. I really get caught up in the novelty of it all and the element of surprise. The first happy pack I ever bought was actually quite a good one though...Idk if my standards/tastes have changed or I'm just less lucky lol.
