I'm going to post some things from milk that I'd buy and I'd appreciate anons' opinions on
>>10628017This just looks like pajamas to me and not even in a cute way. You’d look like a suburban dad on vacation.
>>10628025I have something like this from Milk but I'm afraid of wearing it to the beach because I don't want to be viewed as an adult baby :(
>>10628027that's a really odd looking combo
>>10628441That's what I love about it
Hey all, any recommendations for brands like Nile Perch and Spank!? Thanks in advance :)
I really want ETC to do more skirts so hopefully this release is popular
Anons how do you wear polyester OPs in summer without smelling like old sweat?
>>10628015>What's your favourite brand and why?ETC, because their sizing and cuts are perfect for my body>What's your favourite look/thing to wear right now?JSK without blouse>What have you bought recently and how do you decide what to buy?Recently I only buy something if I really need it, and if I buy something new I make myself sell something too>What's your favourite new release?Pic related
>>10628589Wrong thread for that>>10610893
>>10631523menthol body wash for men does magic
>>10628017I was looking for pajamas, this one looks a lot like some pair sold at Aliexpress. Keywords started with kawaii/cute, some clicks later it showed up.Quality could be on the bad side, but they're easy to find at a cheap price. Either way:>What's your favourite brand and why?All time favorite was Cache Cache for French clothes that lasted for years. Not lolita but femenine and comfortable.>What's your favourite look/thing to wear right now?Long pants with light fabric, pastel colors are good. No need to get all the hair out of my leg all summer, let the skin rest.>What have you bought recently and how do you decide what to buy?Nothing. I put all my wardrobe in one website, so the pieces could be compared in a single image. Web closed down, so now it's a phone app with similar looking stuff.>What's your favourite new release?What release? I never check for popular pieces, just whatever fits me, fashion can come and go, a good fit can be timeless. Normies don't really care, and that's fine.
Yumetenbo started a girly shoe brand:https://www.dreamvs.jp/shop/pages/about_cheleap.aspx
Are there any Japanese brands that release "otome kei" midi and maxi dresses and skirts but aren't priced as high as Jane Marple and Pink House?
I want to buy a cooler bag that goes with girly jfashion style but they all look ugly or are literally for children (too small)
>>10639706Cath kidston>>10632142Just 2 letters away from cheap..
>>10639706>>10639855Dropped picture. It fits an upright wine bottle.>>
>>10639857Thank you! They are out of stock but I'll keep an eye out
>>10633855Merry JennyRivet & Surge (closed last year but you can find stuff secondhand)Ruby & You (very beige)
>>10640023Thanks! I knew about merry jenny but i didn't think they do any fun prints
>>10640006It's still in stock for me https://www.cathkidston.com/en-gb/prints/shop-by-print/cherries/402602559130IVORY.html
>>10640095I'm not sure if it's worth it if I buy it from there because I'd have to pay import tax and administration
>>10628015>What's your favourite brand and why?JM, I just go nuts for royal and historical motifs and their textures are to die for>What's your favourite look/thing to wear right now?I've been going apeshit buying up 2ndhand cutsews from Milk/ETC/JM for the summer since I've given up on finding new blouses that are cotton or have square/round collars+short sleeves. Cutsew dresses, too.>What have you bought recently and how do you decide what to buy?Just a lot of the above from CC, I'm looking for things to survive summer so looking for open necklines, short sleeves, and ivory/offwhite (since I look terrible in stark white).>What's your favourite new release?Nothing really comes to mind. I don't tend to buy a lot of main pieces in spring/summer since I like dark main piece colors and motifs. I've been eying Milk's jewelry lately.Like said above, I'm trying to collect more summer-friendly materials right now, but it feels so hard to find breathable tops in a variety of styles lately? Any recs for blouses without peter pan collars? ETC would always be perfect for summer except almost all their blouses seem to be either PP collar or long sleeves.>>10640023>Rivet & Surge (closed last year but you can find stuff secondhand)DA I'd never heard of this brand but looking them up it's such a shame they've closed, their stuff is adorable! Any other smaller brands that have more jewel tones like this and JM?
>>10628015>What's your favourite brand and why?MILK. It feels like everything is made perfectly for my body. The style is like this sweet spot between casual and “kawaii” fashion and the materials are really nice quality.Other fav brands are Jane Marple, Katie and Qpot. >What's your favourite look/thing to wear right now?Longer OPs are my go to for the average work day. Tshirt/cutsew coords for summer.I also love Milk’s fruit/berry prints. Especially in black x red colorways.What have you bought recently and how do you decide what to buy? I’ve been pretty stressed out from my job so I bought a lot lately. I got this >>10628019 in the white colorway with that same leopard print top. And picrel gingham OP in yellow. I got tons of complements on it.Also the black OP from Jane Marple’s cherry labels series. It’s pretty oversized though so a little out of my comfort zone.I mostly buy new but there are a few old pieces I’m searching for. What's your favourite new release? See above. So far nothing from fall/winter collections really caught my eye.
>>10643644Oh shoot I rly messed up the green text didn’t I
i only come to this board to look at pretty girls, idgaf about cosplay >>10628038>>10628030>>10628024are beautiful
I have pic related in navy and it's too short and baggy to wear with my usual skirts and jeans. Any advice?
>>10645958>sweet clothing>in a non sweet/pastel colorI've spent 0 and I want my money back. Don't take it personal lol.
>>10645958maybe wear it over high wasted shorts or under overalls or over a long sun dress
Did Pink House always manufacture in China or is it a new thing?https://www.i-goods.co.jp/product/interview/pinkhouse/
I love these sailor dresses that don't look too childish but I'd never pay 500 euro for it.
>>10646242I think https://shop111373248.world.taobao.com has similar pieces for low
>>10646283i can't buy from taobao from my region unless i use a shopping service so i've never used it and can't view most of the products. can you really trust shops that sell dresses for less than 10 euro?
>>10646325taobao has customer protection for 6 months, they hold the money and only release it to the seller when the buyer is statisfied with the purchase and marks it as such, agents do the same
>>10645958High waisted bottoms
What would Secret Honey be classified as typically? I bought a dress from them recently, that well.. it's nearly lolita. Fits a petticoat, darker colors so I can't really traditionally think of it as otome. Hearing "soft lolita" makes sense for a lot of things but that term is brand new to me despite being into lolita for years.What is soft lolita traditionally defined as? I really want to get a grasp on the definition for it.
>>10646787depends on the release really, but the shown one is just フェミニン
>>10646787>What is soft lolita traditionally defined as?The jp comm really doesn't use that term, it's like bittersweet something that doesn't really exist and is just another term for casual lolita.
>>10646792>フェミニンI was seeing some stuff like girly kei listed in Japanese a lot when looking up their stuff.
>>10646787It's from Misako's book. The pages are translated somewhere on Tumblr.
>>10646825which the outfit in >>10646787 is not because ガーリー is defined by lots of ribbon, ruffles, and playful prints
>>10646855>defined by lots of ribbon, ruffles, and playful printsYou could same about lolita to be fair, what distinguishes some styles from others in jfashion is always going to be up to personal taste or preference after a certain point of similarity.
This new print is so cute
>>10646792Thanks for the name!
>>10646242Just buy some vintage Laura Ashley
>>10659995Still, that vintage LA in that particular style goes for 100$-150$ at the moment
>>10665584Man, I wish I’d bought more of them when I could buy piles of them for $8-$12 at my local thrift stores 5 years ago or so.
>>10665593Yeah everyone is saying that now. It’s insane some prints now go for 400£
DML has a collab with Disney going on for once.
>>10667390they've done a marie from aristocats a few times
>>10667390I'm more enthralled with Amavel right now. I'm guessing they are doing more of a vampire theme because of Halloween coming up.
>>10667390Looks washed out
>>10669428Anon, muted colors like that have been popular for few years already, their regular stuff looks like that too.
>>10628022I would sleep in this
>>10645984Soft yellow seems pretty pastel to me.
Which normie brands do you buy from for basics? I miss trying things on different sizes in-store
>>10675485Forever21 has nice things every spring.
