My last outstanding Taobao has arrived! I ordered July 2nd, and with EMS shipping and a delay with the shoes, everything arrived today.
I got shoes from Sosic Shop, hair clips and wristcuffs from Haruhiclover, and headbands from Red Maria. Also, two petticoats from Aurora&Ariel. Finally have blue shoes! I already own some of these same wristcuffs in different colors, and they are great.
The three headbands from Red Maria are identical, except pink, light blue and lavender. The little chain and gem are not removable, but I can squish the “bow” down a bit so it sits flat on my head. Also, the bows are a lie! They are not really looped bows but just sewn to look like bows.
Hair clips from Haruhi Clover. My SS wanted to make sure I only wanted 1 of each bow clip, because they are modeled as clips for pigtails (so you’d have to buy two). Maybe I will buy more later, but these look nice and seem to be pretty good quality for cheap hair bow clips. Also, Haruhi Clover included another shiny star hair clip, so now I have two. The little rose hairpin actually came with my shoes, which is kind of off, but okay, I love free gifts.
Not exactly sure on how to take a good picture of the petticoats. Not even sure which is which, but I think the Ultra Violence one is the poofier one (as it should be).
I tried on both petticoats and am disappointed, but mostly in myself. The waistband is less stretchy than expected, so I have to pull them over my head and while they technically fit, they do not fit comfortably. Of course, I am watching my food, but life has been stressful (let me rephrase that, my FAMILY is stressful) so I have been overeating still. u__u It may be easier to replace the elastic in these instead. I will have to think about it.
There is a meet this weekend, a picnic that isn’t far from my house, and this would have been the perfect opportunity to test out these petticoats and shoes a bit more. Alas, my family is causing problems so I will have to go out of town.
