Buyee purchases 5 - Liz Lisa x My Melody 2nd collab OP (pink) & Liz Lisa novelty floral poncho towel

Note: The photos at the bottom of 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.
For some reason, the consolidation process for this package was fast but actually shipping the items took a few days. I shipped with SAL right before the holiday season and that seemed to take forever compared to the week that I'm used to for SAL. But I wasn't in any particular rush to get this package, so I didn't really mind. These blog posts are still all backed up because I prioritized the trip posts so heavily, but hopefully I'll be reasonably back on track soon and not a month backlogged for these shopping posts. I suppose they're not really time sensitive though - especially the secondhand ones because there's pretty much just the one listing for each item and I got it lol. In any case, I won the auction for these items on 11/4 (poncho) and 12/3 (OP) and I received the package in the mail on 12/22.

This was the colorway I originally wanted but I bought the white in an earlier auction because I just wanted to jump at the chance to get it. I had never tried it on before or seen it in person, but after receiving the white one, I knew I would also like it in pink. I wasn't planning on getting it, but the bid was pretty low so I just took a chance with less than an hour left and no one else outbid me lol. Good timing, I guess. I still can't believe that I could have had this new when it was first listed years ago and hesitated too much and missed my chance -__-. But regardless, now, a couple years later I have it in both pink and white (albeit secondhand and used), but still in reasonable condition and I'm not unhappy with the price I ended up paying for them.

The pink dress is exactly like the white except the color of course. I enjoy the fit and the length and can easily see why this was a popular item at the time and continues to be now even though it doesn't have any print or specific My Melody branding on it.

I had really, really wanted this when I had seen it first promoted during the summer of 2014. Since I was purchasing a Liz Lisa swimsuit for the first time that same season, I thought this novelty item would be the perfect accompaniment to the bikini set and the towel and would be quite useful. I've looked for it many times on the auction sites and from secondhand sellers but I could never find it for a price I was comfortable paying in new condition until this listing. Luckily I didn't have to deal with a bidding war to get it, maybe because it's a bit off season lol.

The swimsuit I bought from 2014 doesn't exactly match the towel print (which matched with a different bikini set also from that season) but it's close enough for me lol. The poncho itself actually a bit wider than I expected it to be but also shorter? Well I think my expectations are just off and not the poncho itself. Regardless, it's quite cute imo and another great novelty offering by Liz Lisa. I would have been so happy to get this free with purchase lol. I don't know how much I will actually use it since I already have four Liz Lisa towels that don't get regular use, but maybe this will be my excuse to tag along with my bf when he goes fishing. (Although it's not like he doesn't let me go with him. I'm the one who usually resists haha.)

I'm quite happy with both of these items. This was a small set of items (just 2!) but the poncho towel was already sitting for so long before I won the auction for the pink Liz Lisa x My Melody collab OP, so I just wanted to get the shipping over with. Since there wasn't a lot else that I was interested in purchasing at the time, once there was another item to consolidate, I just cut myself off lol. I've really come to realize that I want to scale down my secondhand purchases anyway. Even though the auction item price might be low, everything else with the service fees and domestic and international shipping really add up and are often unpredictable which I'm not the hugest fan of. I think I allowed myself a little more leeway with these items because autumn/winter tend to be slow purchasing times for me for Liz Lisa items due to the season and type of items being sold, but it's already picking back up and I can't wait for spring!

  1. I'm jealous you own two MM second collab dresses now. Made. Super loves the poncho as well. It seems really practical actually. Like it would be a cute over up as well as towel. Idk, I like it regardless.

    1. The dress hasn't been available from Liz Lisa for years now and I purchased it through an individual listing on Yahoo Auctions, but your best bet is a similar secondhand sale :)
