12 kilos of lolita!

I've been winning auctions like a boss for about half a year, and since I wanted my Wonder Story bag for the Bath meet on Saturday I decided to finally ship it! Still waiting for a few items though, but looks like one of them may never get to me as I won the auction 2 months ago =[

Anywho, Celga is very hit and miss. Their site and bidding system is really easy to use, which is pretty much the only reason I use them. The fees are harsh, their bid ID is frequently rejected, they forget to place bids sometimes so you have to remind them. But this time, they sent my package to the wrong address! Thankfully my housemates still live in that place, but since I changed my address on Celga when I moved, that's pretty damn poor. Also while I asked them to mark down the value to quarter, they marked it at $45...which is way less. If it had gotten lost I'd have received no money back at all. Kinda good as it skipped customs, but a value that low looks REALLY suspicious on such a huge parcel! So wasn't too impressed by that.

First up, Angelic Pretty webshop purchases! With these came some stickers, AP plastic bag, sheets detailing the latest releases, La Foret Fashion Week posters and...

a cute tote bag!

Dream Sky skirt and socks! So adorable, wrapped in the trademark pink tissue paper. Probably have to sell this skirt though...originally Celga said they couldn't get me the skirt so I ordered the pink from the USA website. Then they bought me this. Ugh. It's so cute though Dx

Wonder Story bag! I've wanted a book bag for ever, and this is so well made, it's spongy and lush! Only problem is due to the strap placement I have to wear it across my body the 'wrong' way which will take some getting used to. Love it so much though!

Other Angelic Pretty purchases now!

Whip Magic skirt and socks. This print just keeps growing on me, so when I saw it for cheap I snapped it up. The back is odd, the zip is in the centre of the back and the elasticated bits are on the sides at the back! The details are lovely though...I love the pearls on the ends of the waist ties.

Candy bag. One ribbon is missing =/ it was there on the proof photos on the listing, albeit wonky. But it isn't here at all so I can't even stick it back on. Not really sure what I can put on in replacement. It's also a bag that's impossible to use. The zip will barely move and I can't squeeze my hand in very easily. It's a really cute bag though ^_^'

Star bag, to go with Dream Sky! Zip on this a little difficult too and all the corners are bent, but I LOVE IT!

Pastel Pearl skirt in blue. It looked totally different in the photo, but after the initial shock, I love it! Although it is too short to wear a petti with unless I pull it down a little, but then my blouse won't stay tucked in. It has elastic in the back which I had to tighten to hell, so it looks kinda bunched up.

Bunny hood bolero =3

Bobble that came with the bolero.

Hoodie, it fits like a charm!

Cutsew that came with a big lot (I'll explain later). Needs a button to be sewn on.

Lyrical Bunny headband as it'll be soooooooooo useful for casual.

Baby, The Stars Shine Bright

Merry Sweet Castle JSK and headbow. Just fell in love with the colour, and fell in love with the print upon seeing it in real beautiful! Hoping to gradually move more towards this kind of sweet as it's a little more mature.

Usakumya-chan's Stylish Sweet Time JSK...I love scallops! This JSK is a bit big though as I bought L size (it was cheaper!).

Swan Lake skirt. Have you gathered how much I love this colour yet?

Lovely Sweet Room JSK, quite tea-stained but won't notice when worn.

Alice's Garden JSK, MINT!!

Capelet. Love the chains on it.

Now, the set I mentioned earlier! I always wanted a heart apron in white, but for the same price I saw this:

a pink one which came with...

a JSK (don't like the shirring, but beautiful lace),

a cardigan (some red stains, but mostly on hood where it isn't visible)

and this headdress (one ribbon is falling off, but easily stitched back on).

Bonnet and socks which came in a set with a petticoat. Bit scabby and off-colour though, much worse than the seller made out. I'm not sure if bonnets suit me anyway...thoughts?

Alice And The Pirates

Kuroneko no Dance! I loved this print so much from the second I saw it. This is my first big AATP piece, although my first ever brand piece was a cardigan of theirs. I actually thought this skirt was black, but it's a beautiful dark emerald green...that looks black haha. However it seems to have had a bleach incident as there are some orange bits on the back, which isn't noticeable in the print but is on the green. It isn't too bad though, hoping it doesn't show too much when worn. And obviously the price reflected this flaw.


Swan Lake! The print that made me a lolita pretty much. Came without the sleeves and collar, but not too bothered. Just hope I wear it as I don't really like OPs, but I couldn't pass this up as it was my first dream print and it's stunning.

And some other random stuff...

Free Kera magazines from Celga (the packaged ones, the other I bought from a British seller recently), two Kanon Wakeshima singles, two Moon Kana albums (Spade is signed!). Also got a Maximum The Hormone album for Rob, but he already took it.

Pikachu kigurumi! It's so massive on me as it's meant for someone taller than me...but it's so warm and snuggle-y and I wish I could wear it everywhere (well, not really. It's so unflattering).

That's everything! Sorry it was delayed in posting, my camera batteries died and I didn't have any more. Now the only items I'm waiting for from Celga are ETC's Present Box skirt, a pinkXbrown split wig and ETC's Mermaid print!

Needless to say, I won't be buying anything new for an awfully long time now.

In other news, been ill for almost a week now. Started with a sore throat, and now with intermittent runny nose and coughing. Haven't been able to sleep very well because of it, so my work has been suffering and I will look like hell at the lolita meet because I haven't had the energy to make myself pretty...but hope I'm well enough to go! I've been looking forward to it for ages.

  7. my Goodness! so many gorgeous things! *O*
    i've got to ask above anything where you got kana's albums though!

  8. Pretty much all this stuff is from auction sites, mostly Mbok (which I *think* was where I got the albums) and some Yahoo. It took repeated searching to find them for a decent price though!
