P.S. This post is organized in the order I won the listings/purchased the items, so if it seems really hammajang, that's why lol.
Yahoo Auctions purchases
One Spo anchor dot sandals in black; Condition: New -

One Spo Napoleon set up; Condition: Used -
the trip and wanted more One Spo things lol. (This was back in December lol.) I kind of just bid on whatever wasn't priced horribly. This set up also seemed really familiar to me for some reason, but I couldn't find any exact shop staff photos from the obvious places on Tumblr so I'm not exactly sure what I recognize it from. Maybe an earlier issue of Jelly Magazine? (That magazine and style used to be a favorite of mine in high school.) Anyway, whether or not I had actually seen this set up somewhere before, it really reminded me of that and I figured eh, why not bid on it? Lol.

On the other hand, the white shorts, which were kind of just along for the ride, fit really well! The material is thinner (not denim) and the cut is different. It fits really well on my waist and there is also enough room for my hips and thighs. I don't actually own any white shorts, so I guess it works out well. Due to the thinness and design of the material, I don't see myself wearing these out a lot just because I feel like if there was a hard rain or something, they could become see thru lol. And also I'm just not big on bubble hem shorts because it ends up looking like a diaper or bloomer-style undergarments to me. They're comfortable enough to wear around the house or just casually to the beach though!
Amazon JP purchases
Buyee has somewhat recently changed their service fee pricing for sites like Rakuten and Amazon Japan. I figured that while I'm at it, I may as well look for a few things from Amazon as well. (I didn't want to cross into Rakuten and get tempted to buy more.) I've never ordered from Amazon JP using Buyee before. In the past, I've made orders and shipped directly internationally or I shipped to my Tenso address. Using Buyee is actually a really easy alternative. You have to be using a particular browser in order to use the extension they developed, but that includes mainstream ones like Google Chrome and Firefox and it's not troublesome imo. Install the extension then browse Amazon JP for an item you're interested in. Click on the listing and then use the extension to add it to your Buyee cart (not your Amazon cart). When you're done browsing, you check out with Buyee and they will make the order for you within 2 business days. The items will be shipped to Buyee and then you continue with the process as you would for any other order.
iDress iPhone 6s My Melody trunk style phone case (new) -
Larme 020 (new) -
Sanrio My Melody ice cream tote (new) -
Misako at the Honolulu Museum of Art and I was delusional lmao. That being said, I do really like it but since I'm supposed to be on this wardrobe slimdown kick, I may look to see if someone else can better use this purse. I purchased this before I started downsizing but obviously am receiving it after.
I paid for my consolidation, domestic fees and the remainder of my international shipping on Feb 12. It shipped out with EMS on Feb 14, and there was attempted delivery on Feb 19 but I missed it because I was at work. I received the package on Feb 20.
Did you sense a trend of me bidding on things simply because I didn't have to worry about international shipping? Lol wtf. What a terrible reason to go on a small spending spree, but I had to take advantage when I could! I don't really have any particular need for most of these items, but I'm glad to have them. I am particularly happy with the Liz Lisa Chambre mat and the One Spo shoes which I was really excited to get since they haven't been sold by their original retailers for some time now and both were in new condition. I'm definitely willing to scour Yahoo Auctions for items like this, but I'll probably be cooling it on the secondhand side for the next couple months at least since there's so many current season things I'm interested in and this was a huge frivolous spree lol!
