A bit of a spur of the moment/impulse purchase lol.
Gingham flower towel in blue (141-9918-0)
Tokyo Kawaii Life order 8
After my towels had in-processed at Tenso, I decided that I didn't want to ship them internationally by themselves - it wouldn't be worth it at that price. I had anticipated that Tokyo Kawaii Life would have a web shop (3rd) anniversary happy bag like in past years around September 20, but apparently not! I guess the web shop has a different anniversary now that it's TKL and not VENT? Or they're just not celebrating this year. Lol wtf they totally tricked me. Anyway, I was planning on ordering something else to ship with the towels later in the week after the Friday releases, but since the item I was anticipating wasn't listed, I had to look for a few other things!
Key motif skirt (in white) (142-4020-0)
Fancy Autumn Magic newspaper (Look 10) when I had just that small preview photo to go off of about a month ago, but when it was finally stocked online, I fell in love with it in the "white" color option. [Blogger is putting that horrible weird grey filter on the photos I upload again, and I can't make it stop wtf.] The color is definitely more beige/yellow than white but it's what Liz Lisa is calling white so yeah lol. This skirt is longer than most of my other bottoms that look similar to this but that's probably because this is a true skirt and not sukapan which tend to be shorter. I like the length a lot. Definitely makes it appropriate for more occasions. And I'm soooo in love with the print. There is a little volume after the waistline which I think has to do with the fact that there's so much shirring in the back? The waist is actually quite stretchy compared to some other bottoms from Liz Lisa which I determined because this skirt can actually be "worn" on my mannequin which I think is a medium-ish size (or like a larger small if that makes any sense)? I even pulled it on to the mannequin over the shoulders (mostly because I was too lazy to take it off the stand to pull on the skirt the regular way) and it's quite broad and solid (my mannequin isn't soft and cushy) there. That was about the maxium of the shirring though. It also fits my waist well too, so I can see it easily working for someone size XS - M (although you should always check measurements to be sure).
Ribbon x pearl lace cami (in pink) (132-2010-0)
Tralala Flower applique button down top (in yellow) (641-1409-0)
Big flower earrings (in pink) (141-9004-0)
Collar dot OP (in pink) (120-6010-0)
Champouf pass case (in pink) (142-9901-0)
Finally I have something Champouf! Tbh I wasn't in love with this character when I first saw her, but she definitely grew on me. I feel like they don't reguarly release Champouf items as much anymore, and I needed an easily accessible pass case so I was like OKAY THIS ONE lol. I actually was intending to use this for my bus pass but I have since changed jobs and no longer catch the bus...so I'm not sure how much use it will get but at least it will probably stay cleaner for longer now lol. There is a zipper pocket at the top of her head and the clip is attached to one of those retractable cords! Lol this definitely would have been a good choice if I was still catching the bus -__-
I had some full price items in this order, but with all the sale stuff at very discounted prices including the towels, it kind of evened out lol! If I'm allowed to think about it that way :)
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.
