Nearly a month since my last post but I have good reasons and that's going to be a surprise so I'm just going to continue on with this post!
A couple weeks back, I was on Facebook talking about how I made my first order through Tenso to purchase some Liz Lisa items. Nothing too fancy since I never used Tenso before and was wanting to test out the waters with this shopping service. Before I jump right in, this is a non-sponsored post in case you were thinking it might have been from my soon to be expressed satisfaction.
For one, I am so mad I didn't discover the wonders of Tenso earlier. It's so easy to use once you get past the registration bit but even that is easy and quick to do. Their service fee is fixed at 490 yen, so you can purchase more goods without worrying about the percentage effecting your total (but the international shipping is still calculated by the weight of your items). I saw how there were many cheap items on Liz Lisa outlet online shop so I thought why not get some of those to see how this first transaction goes.
This first item was a Tralala dress that looks a lot like the ones I saw when I first was introduced to this brand so to see how affordable it is now made me get it.
|See that original price? Huge discount!!|
It is a cute looking dress that still allows room to make your outfit rokku-kei if need be which is probably how I will be wearing this dress most of the time. This is definitely not form fitting by all means so it will make you look like you are hiding a baby bump however it still gives off a dolly effect with it's different layers and bow centered in the middle of the V-collar. I do wish however that it had lace on the edges as I was telling a friend of mine so later on, I might end up altering it with some soft black lace trim but for now this will do as it is. You guys know my luck...I did find yet again a loose thread. This time it was just one but still, why do they always find a way into my closet?
The final item I also got was this cute tank top. Again it was super affordable but looks like nothing I have in my closet so I bought it and now wish I got it in all the colors of the rainbow because of how adorable it looks!! It's a great fit however the neat necklace piece it comes with fits a little awkwardly for me. I wish I would adjust it so it could hang lower but I've had no such luck. This is the same one I wore in my January Favorites video.
I also shared this next item on my recent Winter OOTD video which seems to be a favorite by a lot of people who've watched it! This one was from a Taobao order me and some people from my school's club made as a group back in November in a shop called Candyrain. Although I never heard of it before, their stuff reminded me a lot of Bobon21's items. I just wanted to own a really nice detailed princessy looking coat and this was the one for me! The original photo however made it look a lot more pink than it actually is as you will see below but then again it could have just been my monitor playing tricks on me...damn monitor -.- Either way I still love it!
Price: ¥ 239.00
That's all I have to share for this post! Today, Kevin and I are going to hopefully go see the Chinese lanterns they have displayed at park in Dallas after I get off from work. I am also prepping his Valentines present as we speak. Anyway, I'll leave you all with this adorable gif I made of Hachi when I was taking pics of my items yesterday.
Korila-Hachiko transformation complete!
