(I meant to have more photos here but the lighting came out really crappy, sorry :|)It's super girly and cute, especially because it's all pink! The design is really feminine and not as suffocating on top as I thought it would be (idk why I had that weird misconception about it anyway). This OP would also be great with a white cardigan or in general layered under solid color outerwear, but it's been so hot lately that I couldn't bring myself to throw on a cardigan for the pictures even for just a few minutes, sorry LOL. I believe the lace-up ribbon in the back is actually removable completely if you wanted it to be (and just expose the shirring fully), and you can change the arrangement of the criss-cross "pattern" as well. Imo, the dress actually has quite a bit of room in the waist/top area, and I want to tighten the back more especially near the bottom, but it would look a little ridiculous. But overall, I love the girliness of this OP.

the piano skirt from the previous order. They're really similar in a lot of ways (in fact, when I ordered them, I was convinced they were essentially the same skirt in a different print with a ruffle on the straps), but I think this Cinderella one may be slightly shorter or just sits on my body slightly differently for some reason (maybe how they designed the strap length)? And the ruffles on the straps aren't as busy as I thought they would be and actually blend kind of nicely with some of the tops I have. Even if you're not a fan of the straps, they're removable anyway lol. Even though I'm supposed to be staying away from suspender skirts, I'm pretty happy with this purchase :)
Sunflower OP in white
an OP in this same cut/silhouette, pretty much exactly. I love it to death. That kind of had to do with the print on it but in general, I liked the fit of it as well. When I saw that Liz Lisa was releasing another OP in the same cut, I knew I would want to try and get it if possible. I'm not a huge "loud prints" kind of person, but sunflowers usually make people happy (or idk they make me happy anyway), so I made an exception for this lol. I mean, I already got the set up anyway from before lol. Tbh I almost didn't get it because I had convinced myself to save money + I already had the set up, but I saw that there was only limited stock for this in white so that pressured me into it lol wtf.

Overall, quite a satisfactory order! I like the Cinderella print a lot more than I thought I would and I'm glad I got the OP in pink but also got the suspender skirt in beige. The sunflower OP wasn't too hard of a choice, and I'm sure it'll be useful as a easy, cheerful dress. The two tops, while kind of basic with cutesy details, are both great for matching with numerous bottoms, and I finally got the thin knit I was looking for! Not a bad way to (possibly) end summer online purchases, although I did end up having to pay (imo) a hefty customs fee for this and the previous order together.
I ended up shipping them separately (2 different packages) from Tenso but that didn't stop CBP from combining them for duty fees lol. US customs fees are real. They are not a myth. People pay them if they want to receive their packages, even goods "for personal use" (not intended for profit). I'm really tired of people advising others that these fees are avoidable or nonexistent. This is like the fifth or sixth time I've had to pay customs fees. I'm not making it up. It's not a lie. And there is a significant amount of money missing from my bank account because of it. Package size (big or small) or weight (heavy or light) makes no difference. Goods being under $500 makes no difference. Declared as "gift" doesn't matter. They will charge you at whatever weird rate they want to (it's not just "10%"). There is no transparency. It's part of the reality of ordering internationally, and I'm fine with that. But I'm just irritated with people who brag about their purchases worth thousands of dollars or hundreds of packages (for profit or not) who tell other people "nah, never happens" even after I've spoken up that they do happen. *grump face*
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.
