Especially when I saw that this top was part one of the top options!
Cropped cambric puff top in white (141-1033-0)
Instead of the navy skirt, I decided to get
Floral jumper skirt in purple (141-6028-0)
The reason I decided to go through with this purchase (so soon after my last one lol) was because I wanted two of the most expensive item choices, therefore making the set price extra worth it imo. The top retails for 7452yen (wtf) and the jumper skirt retails for 8964yen. Neither have gone on sale in the past as far as I remember beyond being able to use a 20% off coupon code on them. Getting both at the set price of 10800yen (tax in) instead of 16416yen, I'm getting them at around 35% off and saving about $56! Some of these set prices truly are deals if you want the more expensive options. I would definitely be getting something at these set prices (running 4/25 - 5/12) if I hadn't just made this purchase!
The two pieces look absolutely lovely as a set but they would both also work with different pieces as well. I don't have anything else besides jumper skirts to wear with the cropped top right now, but hopefully I'll find/buy a skirt to go with it soon, so I can achieve that silhouette that Liz Lisa has been hyping for Spring '14 (although they're already rolling out summer stock wtf).

I love all the details on the top from the collar to the sleeves, the material itself and the flower-shaped buttons! The length is going to be a little harder to work with than your average button down, but even if you don't want to wear it untucked (as shown in the stock photos), it works really well with pretty much all of the jumper skirts I have so there's definitely alternatives.
The jumper skirt is quite a nice color, and I don't think it looks super horrible, although I admit it's not the best color for me. Still, I didn't want LL's spring to pass without giving it a try, and I'm glad I did. The pink in the floral print allows me to match it with my pink shoes without much issue. I wear the same Liz Lisa shoes over and over again with pretty much all of my Liz Lisa clothes, but it's because they're actually quite versatile even though the colors would be considered odd for American standards imo!
I've been having this issue with some of my photos uploading darker/lighter than others despite them looking the same in my editing program and in my folders. Like, it seems like something is happening to them as they upload. Or maybe it's my computer? I have no idea! Anyone have any ideas or tips?
As a small reminder (and I'm sure those of you who actually read my posts are tired of reading these blurbs, but I am constantly getting blamed for not warning people of this, so here I go again) - I am extremely uncomfortable with my personal photos being used for the profit of others especially without a simple source link. In general, I would prefer for my photos not to be reposted without my permission at all, but if you feel the extreme need to do so, I simply ask that you just include a simple link back to my original post. Regardless of whether I watermark every single photo, I do still own the copyright to these pictures and you finding them on Google Image does not mean I do not own them anymore?? (There has been some confusion on that front apparently. And to be clear, Google does even warn you when you click on a photo that the image may be subject to copyright, and Google does not sever the photos from their original pages, so it's easy to find their source if you choose.) I do not blog and post these photos so that others can sell their products that are not associated with me in the slightest. And the response I get when I just ask for my photos to be sourced really discourages me from sharing and continuing to blog. I mean this in the least aggressive way possible, but I'm not just going to throw 80 smiley emojis in this to "soften the tone" because I am serious, and I honestly feel like you should be able to read a paragraph like this without emoticons and not be offended by its message.______________________________________________________________________________
