tutu sukapan) but looks essentially the same as it would with the matching sukapan or even the shorts. I wanted to try something a little different by layering it under the jumperskirt because the pinks match pretty well, but I think the colors may look a little washed out. This top would also pair really well with denim bottoms!

Shinjuku Alta shop staff Rie on IG and thought the entire outfit was magnificent - 6 items, practically monotone but still had some texture and girliness. It was because of this photo that the skirt went on my TKL wishlist. I believe it actually sold out online at some point and I fell a bit out of love with in when there was an abundance of summer items that grabbed my attention, but when I was putting together my cart and I saw there was stock available in yellow, I immediately became interested again wtf. The majority of the skirt appears to be made of the "waffle" textured material but there panels of lace in the pleats which I thought was really elegant. There's no elastic in the waistband and no real stretch in the material.

lace border flower skirt which I recently purchased in navy so it was not unexpected. The fit on the waist is actually pretty good for me although I think that if there was just a small panel of elastic to help pull it in, it would feel slightly more secure. This has a great otona kawaii vibe and I'm glad I didn't miss what might be my last chance for a while to add another pale yellow item to my Liz Lisa wardrobe.

the sandals!) Unlike the two items immediately above but similar to the set up pieces, this was more of an impulse buy. I was surprised when there was still stock available and just put it in my cart for fun. When I was trying to eliminate things after finishing my browsing, I realized that this bag would fit in nicely with the rest of the order and decided to keep it in. The size is very petite but I don't have an abundance of bags this size, so I am looking forward to having it as a neutral option. It's a nudey color and is made of faux leather. There's one main zipper and also a removable shoulder strap.

[also paired with the pleats set up and pleats sukapan above]I've been calling this purse "the chubster" because I love how small and fat it is lol. It's actually even a little bigger than I anticipated based on the photos and that's great. I don't expect that I'll be using this bag a lot but it will be a great option for when I don't want to take a full size bag but also don't want something overly cutesy and attention grabbing. It does hold all of my essentials (wallet, phone, keys) in addition to all of the other junk I unnecessarily carry, so I'm really happy with it.
I really got caught up in end of season purchasing and buying these things that I don't really need (almost always the case with sale buys for me wtf - I seemingly have very little impulse control) but these items were fun to style and I'm happy to close out SS16 with these great items. I'm especially happy about the fit of the skirt and I've already used the purse on two occasions. It really is a great small size bag in a cute but neutral color and design!
