Lolita Desu Accessory Haul

I recently placed two orders with Lolita Desu again, a favorite website of mine for secondhand lolita goods. (You can read two of my reviews here & here)

They recently announced an accessory sale on their website. Up to 25% off depending on the amount of accessories.

“5% for 2 accessories

10% for 3

15% for 4

20% for 5

25%  for 6″

I had quite a few accessories I had been debating buying for a while so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to get them! I put enough in my cart to qualify for the free shipping.

I totaled 9 items:

1 × “Girl’s Orchestra Kanaria, Accordion” (Balloon Girl with Harmonica) Postcard from Imai Kira

1 × “Girl’s Orchestra Kanaria, Accordion” (Balloon Girl with Harmonica) Postcard from Imai Kira

The Fake Sweets Bible is a magazine people have been talking about lately because it comes with a mold to make your own lolita jewelry complete with full tutorials!
Shortly after, they posted a bonnet by Vierge Vampur. VV is a brand I’ve recently found myself being deeply interested due to the brightly colored dark themed (often circus themed) dresses and accessories she makes, so seeing this come up, I had to immediately buy it. Lolita Desu has this point system called Fuwa Fuwa points, which gives you coupon points proportional to the money you spend on the site. I exchanged my Fuwa Fuwa points for a $35 off coupon and ordered the bonnet & brooch from SWIMMER. The accessories sale was still in effect as well!

Enchantlic Enchantilly continues to be my favorite go-to for lolita accessories and so I had my eyes on this hat pin for a while. I love the mask design and the detail of the gem.

The Neon Circus OTKs have to be the most comfortable brand OTKs I’ve ever had. I have thick calves and these actually stretches all the way above my knees without scrunching or being too tight! Lolita Desu also was way too generous on describing the damages. I couldn’t find any of the issues or staining mentioned, it’s like they’re in new condition!

The SWIMMER brooch is as described. There is some fading that was mentioned in the damages in regard to it being “C” grade, but that doesn’t matter much to me. It’s barely noticeable. The ring goes nicely with my newly acquired Cream Cookie Parade Skirt from Angelic Pretty. I’ve been dying to own something from 6%DOKIDOKI, specifically this brooch! But every time I saw it, it was really expensive. Here it was not only affordable and on sale but in a color I really really like.

Beautiful color & glitter!

Free candy! 😀

Second package with VV bonnet:

Absolutely well-packaged again.

This SWIMMER brooch is really lovely. It’s emboried felt with beads!

This is a very interesting bonnet! I really like the black & ivory striped bow on the back. It’s a lot flatter than I thought it would be but I think it helps the crown design show more.

Striped ribbon back

Lovely note, candy, and another sticker

Bonnet on!

Crown detail

What a great sale! Some of the items I got retail at much greater prices so I was more than happy to buy. The Fuwa Fuwa Points also ended up being extremely helpful and goes to show how much being a loyal customer to the site ends up paying off on future purchases. Without the Fuwa Fuwa points, I couldn’t have made the order and would have missed out of this beautiful unique bonnet.

Overall, Lolita Desu never disappoints me with their well-stocked store and variety. Their sales are so hard to resist, I had to order twice! ><

Thanks for reading! Til next time!

Lolita Desu Lucky Pack 2017!

For those who may be unaware, Lolita Desu is a secondhand (and sometimes new) lolita-based store located in Saitama, Japan. You can read my previous review of them here.

They released their new lucky packs for 2017 and I thought I’d try my luck with them again!

This time I ordered two lucky packs, the “Royally Sweet Like Alice” Lolita Lucky Pack & the “Cute Spring Home” Luck Pack.

Here are the basics of the product descriptions:

“Royally Sweet Like Alice” Lolita Lucky Pack (B~C Condition, 6 + 1 items):

Original print skirt from Baby, the Stars Shine Bright.
Blouse from Angelic Pretty.
Parka from Angelic Pretty.
Original print headbow from Baby, the Stars Shine Bright.
High Knee Socks from Angelic Pretty.
Necklace from SWIMMER
FREEBIE:
Ribbon Brooch Bow, most likely from Angelic Pretty, originally part of another garment.
“Cute Spring Home ” Lucky Pack (A~B Condition, 10 items):

1 note pad from Swimmer.
1 Toilet brush Chocoholic.
1 glue stick from Chocoholic.
1 pen from Chocoholic.
1 cake fork from Swimmer.
1 photo album from Chocoholic.
1 gift envelope set from Swimmer.
1 plate from Chocoholic.
1 cute interior sheet from Chocoholic)
1 kids alpacasso from Amuse.

Okay so I placed my order on 02/16/17.
It shipped on 02/20/2017 and I received it on 02/24/17.
My total came out to $160 for both packs.

Because I ordered over $150 worth, my order qualified for free shipping!



Arrival & Opening!

Let’s talk about the Cute Spring Home pack first since it has the most items.

Definitely a solid pack! I really liked that the entire pack seemed to fit the theme very well.
The plate presently sits nicely in my kitchen in case of cake-time.
The photo-album is great for storing instax mini photos I’ve taken of me and my friends.


I actually used the Chocoholic interior sheet to decorate my work desk where I make crafts!

So onto the clothes with the Royally Sweet Like Alice lucky pack.


I think it’s pretty amazing!
A very minor complaint is that while I knew the main color was going to be pink, I didn’t expect this much pink. I greatly would have preferred a smidge more variety among the basics like the blouse or parka.


Loving the Alice necklace and the socks!

The blouse unfortunately does not fit me. While my bust & waist measurements were correct to what was listed on the website, without the shoulder & arm measurements, I was unable to predict it being too tight on my body. However, I am in the process of becoming more physically fit so who knows, with time maybe it will!

But my favorite item out of the entire set is the skirt!

Okay this skirt, I ADORE this skirt. I’m actually surprised with myself regarding how much I like it.

Baby, the Stars Shine Bright Alice and the Seven Keys Print Skirt

It’s crazy to think that this skirt is 11 years old. It’s from 2006 and has a nice bustle in the back. I adore the dark pink roses on the soft pink print.

It’s also been a challenge to find any images of a coordinate featuring this skirt so I’m motivated to pull together something nice highlighting it.


Besides the two lucky packs, I also ordered a SWIMMER watch.

I’ve wanted this watch for a while and was very happy to see it in stock!

They also gave me a nice surprise! Despite missing the deadline, they generously included me in their special Valentine’s special with a surprise Chocolate Towel! And of course, another sweet candy.

Overall, a great order again. Lolita Desu’s lucky packs are always a wonderfully pleasant surprise and I often end up getting nice pieces that I would not have considered on my own otherwise. I’m really looking forward to my next one!
