Wunderwelt Review & Haul

Happy Sunday! Today, I will be doing a review of the website Wunderwelt!

Wunderwelt is a Japanese company that specializes in selling/buying secondhand lolita items, as well as being an official seller for various official and indie lolita brands. There was a few items I had been eyeing on the site more recently so I decided to go through with the order and see!

I ordered 5 items (technically 8 but some were sets):

Alice and the Pirates Wooden Sole Shoes

 ¥4,990

20170310逕サ蜒・w-22678-00

¥14,389
wzdmapyf

Enchantlic Enchantilly Dolled up Ring – Crown (Queen)
¥1,800

Total: ¥61,057 + ¥900 shipping

Why I chose some of these items:

The Prince Kokoro ribbons had sold out during their reservation period this year and were priced 3400-3700 yen each respectively so seeing them all in a bundle like this at a reasonable price was hard to pass up.

With the wooden shoes, I’ve wanted to test out my foot sizing with Aatp more recently so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to add a nice staple to my wardrobe, while also seeing if I should resume ordering LL or L sizes in the future.

Eternal Dream Starlight Parade has been on my wishlist for a while but I was mostly into the Navy & Red colorway of it until I saw pictures of it being worn. Seeing the worn pictures, I wasn’t sure about the color anymore but still being in love with the cut, decided to try for green with this order. The best part is that the wunderwelt listed also included the matching bonnet for a completed set.

Midnight Merry-Go-Round was also on my wishlist but on the back-burner. With it being sold out on Innocent World’s website, I thought now would be the perfect time.

This ring is actually the only auction I’ve ever lost on lacemarket so far. So when I saw it was selling new on Wunderwelt’s Fleur website for a comparable price to the one in the auction, I had to add it to my shopping cart.

After ordering:

Wunderwelt has this cool promotion for international buyers. 5000 yen off all overs over 50000 which can be a lot, but in my particular instance, buying two dresses and a pair of shoes, it came as a lifesavers. What would have been 5900 yen in shipping costs, was reduced to a mere 900 yen.

Order placed on: 06/10/16

Shipping estimate received on: 06/12/16

Order shipped by EMS on: 06/14/16

Order received: 06/17/16

Overall I’m very impressed with how fast everything went! Around a full week turnaround in regards to ordering, getting the confirmation, and then actually having my items in hand.

Opening:

The box was reasonably sized and well packaged to keep everything from being damaged during transport.

The shoes were discounted the way they were because of the various scuffs but my lolita secret is Mr. Clean Magic Erasers! I little water & buffing and I was able to remove all the scuffs like brand new. Absolutely worth it.

The ring is brand new and so lovely, it’s perfect. The bows are in wonderful condition, I especially like the detailing in the ribbon.

The Midnight Merry-Go-Round also arrived in wonderful condition.

As for Eternal Starlight, this dress is absolutely gorgeous. I didn’t realize that the fabric had built in glitter & shine. I was really hesitant about the color because green is just not normally a color I wear but I love the silky emerald of this dress.

Overall, I can fully recommend Wunderwelt as a solid resource for lolita secondhand & new items. The prices are competitive, the item conditions are thoroughly described, and the turn around is very quick. At the time of this writing, I’m already looking forward to my next order!

Until next time!

 

Carousel! Japanese Geta

Hi everyone! Time for another edition of Carousel! This week I talk about some of my recent finds & deals!

gashapon

Sailor Moon Gachapan Compacts – $26

I’m definitely a Sailor Moon fan as it was one of the first anime I ever watched as a child! I love the compact designs and recently bought one of them but was surprised to see a full set of them going on the anime circlly! I had to take them up and I can’t wait to display them!

Japanese Geta – $6

Now this has me completely put through a loop. While thrift shopping, I found a pair of authentic Japanese geta. The sticker on the bottom reads “Tokyo!” Finding this was such a shock, someone had to have purchased these in Japan (or ordered them from Japan) gotten tired of them and donated them at the Goodwill right next to my apartment. It’s so funny how items travel!

Lacemarket finds!

Yidhra Alice Dream of the Key Tights / Daylight – $7

Black crown headband – $4

Korilakkuma and Sentimental Circus mini bags – $7

2 lolita staples and 2 fashion accessories for less than $20~ All a great addition to my wardrobe!

Thrifting doesn’t get talked about nearly enough in regards to how much of a good activity it can be, not just for lolita, but for fashion in general and even home stuff. I regularly make it a point to thrift at least once a month. It satisfies my desire to shop without breaking the bank and I find unique stuff I might not have otherwise!

I hope you enjoyed this Carousel entry!

‘Til next time!

Carousel! Angelic Pretty for $5?

Heyo! Happy Sunday!

Before my blog restart, I had written two haul posts about recent purchases that I either thrifted or found on sale. In the spirit of reorganizing, I’ve decided to name these posts: Carousel! Shopping often and affordably can always feel like a merry-go-round so I thought it was an appropriate title!

All posts marked with this will talk about recent cool finds (and deals) I’ve purchased recently be it online or in a store and how much I spent on each item.

I play my 3DS pretty often and have been dying to upgrade to a New 3DS XL for a while and this case might finally be the thing that pushes me to do so ❤

Angelic Pretty sugar fairy cake bowl mint$15

Almost all of the dishware I own is thrifted/vintage so what I really like is collecting unique pieces of dishware. This bowl is an absolute joy to have and it matches several of the cups I already own.

Set of 3 Vintage mime clown woman circus pinbacks. 3″ & 2.5″ pin buttons. $13

As soon as I saw these, I had to buy them! I think they would look perfect as an accessory for some circus-themed lolita coordinates. I personally already have a mid-sized pin collection and these make a nice addition to my button collection.

Now this has to be one of the proudest purchases I’ve ever made! Angelic Pretty shoes that I can easily repair? Absolutely!

Lolita accessories set with headbows, bow and Metamorphose collar$10

This was a really good set and I was particularly eyeing the the Metamorphose collar. I even made a nice outfit with it already~

Final Round

Ultimately there was a lot of lacemarket stalking & etsy browsing done to find these but I’m super glad about all of them. The collar set and Angelic Pretty shoes were found thanks to the price organizer on lacemarket by allowing me to arrange listings in order from lowest price and just browse through.
The catch of the Angelic Pretty shoes being $5 resulted in the damages to the shoes. There are some scratches here and there and the heels are pulling out of the cork and as a result, the price reflects this. It’s important to be wary about damages regarding anything bought and ensuring that the price always reflects this. To me, whether or not I could repair them does not remove the value from them still being wearable as-is and that was something I definitely took into consideration.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed this Carousel tidbit! ‘Til next week!

Lolita Desu Lucky Pack 2015!

Hello everyone! Tiffany here with another haul update!

For the year of 2015, one of my goals has been to get more into lolita and fairy kei fashions, But for lolita especially, that can be especially expensive. So one thing that people normally do is buy Lucky Packs! Lucky Packs are a random assortment of items that you pay for worth a certain value. They are usually released during New Year’s because that’s a huge holiday in Japan! So this past holiday season, I decided to try my hand at a lucky pack and order from the website lolitadesu.com! Lolita Desu specializes in second hand, and sometimes new, items direct from Japan. Because of this, there’s an interesting assortment. For things secondhand, it’s normally listed as to what damage exists, if there is any.

So let’s get started!

I placed my order on Jan. 6th, 2015 and received it January 12.

I ordered 1 Fairy Kei Accessory Set Lucky Pack (Type B) and 1 Fairy Kei/Casual Sweet Lolita Cutsew Set Lucky Pack (Type A). The type B pack was $30 and the type A pack was $55. With EMS shipping, my total came to $105.

The description of each are as follows:

Type B:

1 x Necklace (Most likely Nile Perch or handmade, used – Colorful and cute ♡) ~
1 x Mask (SWIMMER, new and still in plastic – magical, colorful and cute ♡) ~
1 x Ankle Socks (Angelic Pretty, used) ~
1 x Fingerless Gloves (Offbrand, new) ~
1 x Necklace (Handmade, new – sweet and colorful ♡) ~

Type A:

1 x Ring (Angelic Pretty, used – Ready to eat and adjustable size ♡) ~
2 x Hairclip (Unknown/No brand, used) ~
1 x Novelty item (SWIMMER, new) ~
1 x Long Sleeved Cutsew (Angelic Pretty, used – Minty, glittery and cute ♡) ~
1 x Necklace (Most likely Angelic Pretty, but might be another one of the big brands, used) ~
1 x 2-way Hairclip (Chocomint, used – Fluffy and minty ♡) ~
1 x Plastic Ring (Angelic Pretty, used – Cute and glittery ♡) ~”

Okay then on to pictures!

Another winner, a carousel necklace, I love every part of it!

IMG_1889  IMG_1887

The Angelic Pretty cutsew! Very soft and a nice pair with everything else I got!

All in all, I was extremely satisfied, every item was accounted for! I got a lot of namebrand items and new unused items for the fair price!

I’ve already made another order from them, I think they’re definitely a source to look to when you want namebrand goods for a good cost. The only downside would be the shipping costs but that’s expected from the distance. My advice would be to make sure whatever you’re ordering is worth the cost in total rather than each individual item or else the shipping costs will definitely trip you up when it comes to value.

Anyway, that’s it for now! I hope you’ve enjoyed this post! I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so I can wear my cute items!

‘Til next time!

EDIT 06/26/2015

Got to try out my first newbie outfit with some of these items! Best purchase!
