Sunday, December 27th, 2015

Oh, gosh, it’s so cold outside!!  A pretty coat can keep you feeling cute even though you have to cover up your cute outfit.  (This is the saddest part of Winter to me – no one can see the outfit I’ve put together!)

These Beautiful Liz Lisa Coats & Cardigans Keep Pretty Princesses Warm! (1)

LIZ LISA 5-Way Poncho-Style Coat

So versatile!!
The poncho cape is sooo pretty.
I love the shape that capes make.  And this one with fur trim and a row of bows
make it perfectly princess-like.

LIZ LISA x Yui Kanno Heart Button Cardigan

Cute cute cuuute!!
These fuzzy textures just look soooo cuddly.
Heart buttons are an instant shortcut to extreme cuteness.

LIZ LISA Elegant Winter Coat w/ Ribbon Brooch

Elegant is right!!
My favorite detail on this is the lace trim at the bottom.
But that awesome ribbon brooch and the fluffy fur trim is also amazing.

LIZ LISA Peplum Cardigan

Wow!!  This cardigan is pretty enough to be a blouse!!
It has such dainty little details!
I think I am in love with the lace collar.
But also the vertical beaded ribbon down each side.

Maybe you’ve been an admirer of Japanese fashions for a long time, and are feeling like it’s finally time to take the plunge and begin building up a wardrobe of your own.  Liz Lisa is one of the most accessible brands, and Tokyo Otaku Mode is stocked full with genuine articles, brand new with tags – and better yet, they are often available for sale prices!!  These are great “building block” pieces to begin building up a beautiful style for yourself. c:

LIZ LISA Starter Set

This is an AMAZING way to get your hands on your first pieces!!
The starter set is a random assortment, but you will always get
one top, two bottoms, and a bag!

LIZ LISA Raspberry Pattern Sukapan Skirt

Pieces like these always remind me of the ornate designs on Lolita skirts.
If you want something more casual than Lolita while still conveying a similar elegance,
then a skirt like this from Liz Lisa might be perfect for your style!

LIZ LISA Fairy Tale Print Dress

Well, anything with “fairy tale” in its name is an instant love for me!!
This navy blue is dramatic and elegant,
but you can get it in paler colors, too, if you want to stick with pastels~

LIZ LISA Back Ribbon Pinafore Dress

Ahhhh I love this deep wine red!!!
And the floral illustrations along the border are so romantic!!
Dresses like this, which cut low under the bust, look beautiful to me.
By wearing them, you can still show off much of the details on your blouse.

LIZ LISA Mocha Lace Blouse

Speaking of blouses!!  Here is a perfect one!!
(Actually the same on in the picture above, too!)
The lacy details on this are soooo cute.
And with roses surrounding you on the collar,
it’s like you’re walking around with permanent shoujo-vision.

Favorite Aliexpress Stores for Lolita, Gyaru, Fairy-Kei, Larme-Kei and Mori Girl!

Monday, March 9th, 2015

Oh my GOSH!!  It has been AGES AND AGES since I posted!  And I am so, so happy to be back!

I can’t say that I actually went anywhere. n_n;  Just got a little burned out updating here all the time.  I’ve been super active on Tumblr instead though!  And drawing, of course!  Always drawing~

Okay, anywhoozles, let’s roll right back into things~  Lately I have been OBSESSED with Aliexpress.  It’s like Ebay, except exclusive to Asian sellers, most of which are setting up shop with their same merchandise from Taobao.  And Taobao has SOME OF THE CUTEST, MOST PRINCESS-FUL CLOTHES EVER!  The same products being on Aliexpress make it easier to get your hands on those Taobao brands (which you normally would need a shopping service for), and Aliexpress has the advantage of being able to cancel your order and get a full refund at any time if you feel the slightest hesitation about your order, which is the huge downfall of Ebay imo (where you have to open up Paypal disputes and possibly not even get your money back if your claim isn’t approved).

ANYWAY.  Cutest stores I’ve found on Aliexpress for girly princess clothes, GO!

Loliloli Shop for Lolita Princess

Loliloli Shop for Lolita Princess

This is THE JACKPOT!!  Perfectly princessy Lolita clothing –
dresses, shoes, gorgeous stockings –
my screenshot above cannot fully encompass how well-stocked this store is.
My top recommendation!

bobon21store

BOBON21

While this seller has the same name as a favorite TaoBao brand,
I’m not sure that they are officially affiliated.
However, they are among the only sellers of Candy Rain
and BoBon21, so they are another store worth browsing!!

J-fashion Harajuku

J-fashion Harajuku

Another great winner!  This store doesn’t have strictly Lolita things,
but it has a wide variety of kawaii styles, and many pastel and anime/geek-themed products,
especially Sailor Moon items!

PRO-G DEAL

PRO-G DEAL

Looooook at how cuuuuute!!  Pro-G Deal has manymanymany items
from the Taobao brand Bobon21,
which is for sure one of the cutest pastel brands out there!
And what’s more, Pro-G Deal recently expanded to include many
ACTUAL Lolita items, such as JSK’s and skirts!!

Liz Lisa Sweet Girls

Liz Lisa Sweet Girls and Store No.734703 (lol)

These two are being lumped together because they have very similar selections!
They are both Liz Lisa sellers!  Figured I’d link to both since even though there’s bound to be
overlapping between products, there will surely be some items listed in one that aren’t in the other,
and it’s always a good idea to shop around~

MONGPING finery

MONGPING finery

This store carries gorgeous Mori girl items!!
And though they’re not pictured in the image,
they also stock Bobon21 items and other kawaii pastel styles as well!!

VV Elegant Fashion Co. Ltd.

DABUWAWA Wholesale & Retail, DABUWAWA & Pink Doll Trade Co.,
Shanghai DABUWAWA International Trading Co.

Three different suppliers for the lovely Taobao brand Pink Doll,
which provides some of the most elegant & mature clothing I have ever seen!

Artka_Aliexpress_Store_for_Earthy_Witches

Artka

Another of the elegant & mature selections,
Artka’s clothing makes me think of something that stylish Earthy witches would wear.
The color palette is darker than the usual Larme-style Mori girl, but there is
something forest-like and enchanting about them anyway!

Soul Vision

Soul Vision

My last featured store for the day isn’t for clothes – it’s home decor!
Living and sleeping in a pretty space is essential for all princesses!
I loooooove the bedding that they have here,
and all of the furniture and homewares are so elegant as well~
