Tokyo Kawaii Life order 25 - Liz Lisa Bandeau rose swimsuit set & Liz Lisa x My Melody 6th collab gingham floral barrette

I ordered these two things during the first week of July, but since I was going to be in Japan in just a bit under a month, I decided to ship them to my old host mother's house instead of Tenso. When I'm close to going on a trip, I like to as little international shipping as possible lol. I wasn't in a rush to get them and since they were relatively small items, I didn't think they would cause my host mom too much trouble. This post comes pretty late after ordering though because I wanted to get all the trip posts done first lol, sorry. I didn't receive the order until I went to Japan though, so the timing isn't extremely bad?...
Note: I guess this post could possibly be deemed slightly nsfw so please don't continue if viewing a person in a swimsuit/bikini is not a good idea for you right now.

Bandeau rose swimsuit set (151-9916-0)
I got a Liz Lisa swimsuit set last year and really liked it. I didn't really think I necessarily needed another one, but at the same time, why not? There were three choices this year, and they were all bikini sets with a bottom cover up skirt or shorts. There weren't any like the OP set I got last year which is fine with me, because I definitely don't need two of the exact same style. I picked this one because I liked the print and design of it best. By the time I purchased it, pink was sold out and only white was left but I didn't think it would be too much of an issue because judging from the last year's swimsuit, they're not very thin or cheapy or anything so I didn't worry about it being see through. I think I would have chosen white anyway since I already have at least one pink swimsuit lol.

Like last time, I think it's going to be forever if I have to wait to take reasonable photos in a beach setting, so in the interest of getting this post done this year, I just quickly took some in my room again.

It's a cute and pretty swimsuit just as expected! The fit is reasonably the same as last year's. The bikini bottom and skirt bottom both fit fine. There is a difference in design in the top and I do think in comparison, the design of last year's does fit my chest a bit better though. I'm on the much smaller side in that area and prefer to have a snugger fit (obviously so the top won't fall off) and there's definitely a bit of room to be had in this year's bandeau top. The halter straps are removable but I will definitely be leaving them on if I plan to do anything in the water or any kind of physical activity. Regardless, I think it will do fine when I wear it, and I'm happy to have it!
Liz Lisa x My Melody 6th collab gingham floral barrette (151-9212-0)

I originally purchased this because I had the matching My Melody collab jumper skirt but I ended up selling it to Rebby before I received this LOL. I mean, it doesn't really matter because I like the barrette either way, but I'm glad that the jumper skirt has a new home. The price for this bow came down quite a bit during the sales and I ended up paying for it entirely with points so it was almost like a "free" item lol. I ended up getting quite a fit from the 6th collab actually! 

I like the size. It's not too big or too small and I feel like it was worth the price I would have paid for it if I didn't use the points. I like the My Melody charm detail's size in relation to the bow as well. It's not obnoxious but still there and cute. It definitely would have been nice to wear the whole vol. 2 collab jumper skirt/gingham sleeve blouse set up with the bow, but it matches reasonably well with a number of other things as well imo so I'm not really fussed about that, and I look forwarding to using it in future coordinates!

This post is a little weird with the bikini and the hair bow which don't really go together, but this is pretty much my last summer 2015 Liz Lisa purchase post (even though I actually bought this over a month before the trip lol). Sorry it's so late but actually it's a bit more on time than my last swimsuit post was since I kept kidding myself that I'd be able to get good beach pictures lol. Maybe one day...


  1. I ended up purchasing the same bikini in pink! I like that you can pair the skirt with a top and it looks like an outfit ^^ - The bow is super cute. I didn't realize you were even selling the MM jumper skirt - the hair bow is really cute tho.

    1. Yeah we actually agreed on the transaction over LINE though lol. It was a while ago! And Rebby ended up getting the whole set so I'm super happy for her haha.

  2. All of your pictures are so well done. You should do clothing photography!

    1. Haha no, I have no eye for lighting at all! I wish I could get a better set up though
