YesStyle: Double Haul

Lace top from YesStyle

This is the first time I’m combining two hauls into one post! Both YesStyle hauls were shipped around the same time, but the second haul was for the sponsored Y2K content.

In addition to the current YesStyle sale, you can use my code “3PEARLS” to get an extra discount off your order! If you check their Instagram or download their mobile app, you can also get a free gift. Every day, YesStyle offers an item for free and you can add this free gift to your order.

You can also check out my First HaulSpring HaulSummer Haul, Winter Haul Part1 and Part2, and 2021 Spring Haul for more detailed reviews of YesStyle products. If you like my detailed and honest reviews and want to see more product reviews, please use the button below to support me on Ko-Fi.

The first haul

This YesStyle haul included 3 tops, 1 dress, 1 skirt, and 2 hair accessories. This also included the first item I returned because it was wayyyy too small. I’ll review the item that was way too small first: the dress!

  • Sinora – Short-Sleeve Floral Mini Sheath Dress – ★★☆☆☆ – I got a size Medium, which I thought should fit me, but I couldn’t even get the dress on even with it fully unzipped. This runs extremely small, so I’d recommend sizing up by at least 2 sizes. This is super frustrating, since I’m normally a size small in American sizing. I normally get a Size Medium from here unless I see reviews stating that the size is accurate and not to size up. I mailed the dress back to YesStyle to return and exchange for a size Large. It took a while for them to mail me the exchange, but luckily, the Size Large fit me. It fit snugly, so again, this dress runs extremely small. YesStyle also did not offer a free return, so I had to pay for the shipping label to mail it back. I’m not sure I’d do that again, since I don’t think it’s worth it to ship back the product. I would give this product 4 stars if the sizing wasn’t so off; the dress itself is cute as you can see above!
  • Kiren – Organza Scrunchie – ★★★★★ – This organza scrunchie is oh-so-cute! I love the pastel purple color and it’s exactly as pictured online. No complaints for this one!
  • Glamiz – Faux Pearl Headband – ★★★★★ – This headband is super cute and was a free gift. I haven’t worn it yet since I usually don’t wear this style of headband, but I will try this out soon.
  • Firebird – Plaid Mini Fitted Skirt – ★★★☆☆ – This skirt is super cute but runs small. I could fit in it, but I really had to suck in my stomach and it was not comfortable to wear all day. After eating lunch, I felt like I was going to explode. I wish the waistband was stretchier! The skirt has built in safety shorts which I appreciate since it’s a miniskirt length.
  • Colada – Buckled Halter Crop Top – ★★★★★ – This crop top is super stretchy and comfortable! It’s perfect for an edgy look and I love the built-in buckle choker.
  • HERMITAKH – Cap Sleeve Lace Top – ★★★★☆ – I really love this lace top but unfortunately I didn’t realize it could only be washed with light colors. After wearing it for the first time and washing it, it got stained terribly even though I used a thick mesh laundry net to wash it in. I can still wear it, but it looks weird now due to the stains. Stain remover did not work, but I might try soaking it next time and seeing if that helps. If you get this, I’d recommend hand-washing it separately to avoid stains!
  • Puffie – Floral Print Cropped Camisole Top – ★★★★★ – This camisole top is super stretchy and comfy. It’s perfect to wear during hot days! I love this top and have worn it a lot while working from home.
Tank top and Skirt from YesStyle

And that concludes the first haul of this Double Haul! Next up is the second haul, which was sponsored by YesStyle for a Y2K content event.

  • Miss Puff – Plaid Camisole Top – ★★★★★ – I have this cami in the red colorway as well, which you can read about in this post. I wasn’t planning on getting another one in blue, but this was sponsored by YesStyle in exchange for a detailed review on Instagram. You can read my full review on my Instagram post here.
  • Puffie – Lace-Trimmed Floral Print Camisole Top – ★★★★★ – This camisole is a super cute floral cropped tank top (no built in bra, but it’s thick enough to be worn without a bra). It’s very soft, stretchy, and comfortable. I love the red floral print!
  • LIVIE – Ruched Cropped Camisole Top – ★★★★★ – This is a beautiful camisole top and you can wear it without a bra. I love the ruching detail! It’s stretchy and feels almost like a swimsuit material.
  • Alizio – One-Shoulder Cutout Cropped Tank Top – ★★★★★ – This one shoulder top is a lovely rib knit material and is soft and stretchy. It’s very flattering when worn, and the straps were the perfect length for my shoulders even though they’re not adjustable.
  • Alizio – Spaghetti-Strap Velvet Mini Dress – ★★★★★ – When I opened up this dress from the package, I was worried about whether or not it would fit me since it looked tiny. However, it was a super stretchy material, so it fit me fine! It’s definitely a mini dress – super short length. If you’re tall, this may be too short for you. See the photo below for a photo of me wearing the dress. This dress was very comfortable to wear and the velvet was still breathable in hot weather.
  • Bababy – Print Raglan Baby T-Shirt – ★★★★★ – I adore this cropped t-shirt! It’s super Y2K and is soft and stretchy. The Heaven Sent graphic on the front is too cute, and I always love a raglan sleeve.
  • Sosana – Frilled-Hem Denim Mini Skirt – ★★★★★ – I was very impressed with this denim mini skirt. It’s actually a skort, since there are built-in denim shorts as well. It’s a stretchy denim material so it’s still comfortable to wear, and the built-in shorts give me peace of mind. The quality was impeccable and there were no loose threads.

Do you prefer the first haul or the second haul in this post? The second haul is definitely Y2K-inspired, so let me know if you’re into those looks! If you’re shopping at YesStyle, be sure to use my code “3PEARLS” to get an extra discount off your order. Happy Shopping!

YesStyle Haul: 2021 Spring Haul

Bralette and Shorts from YesStyle

I know it’s summer now, but better late than never, right?! Here’s my blog post featuring my Spring Haul from YesStyle.

In addition to the current YesStyle sale, you can use my code “3PEARLS” to get an extra discount off your order! One of my favorite things about YesStyle is that there’s always a great sale going on.

You can also check out my First HaulSpring Haul, Summer Haul, and Winter Haul Part1 and Part2.

The pile of stuff!

For my Spring Haul, I got some clothes as well as miscellaneous items. I also got two free items: one which was a free gift with my order, and the other was a sponsored product in return for a review on Instagram.

  • Cute Essentials – Cat Magnet – ★★★★★ – This magnet is sooo cute and also super useful!! I’d highly recommend getting one (or a bunch) if you want to have a useful hook on your fridge to use for a hand towel, or if you have a metal door as your front door so you can stick it up there and hang up your hat or tote bag. I wish I got more than one.
  • Momoi – Printed Mask Carrying Pouch – ★★★★★ – This pouch is super useful and perfectly sized for carrying your face mask. I get paranoid about being mask-less, so I always carry extras in my purse. I put my extras in this pouch, and it keeps them clean and easy to locate! After the pandemic ends, I think this pouch will still be useful for carrying other items.
  • Bling Thing – Lucky Cat Bracelet – ★★★★★ – This bracelet is really cute and high-quality. The little bell is real too! It’s too cute. I love wearing this bracelet, and it’s very easy to put on since you don’t have to deal with any clasps.
  • Reiro – Fluffy Scrunchie – ★★★★★ – What a cute and super soft scrunchie! I haven’t worn this yet, but this would actually be perfect for winter looks. Especially if you have a pink coat or sweater.
  • Cute Essentials – Cat Magnet – ★★★★★ – This magnet is sooo cute and also super useful!!

  • Reiro – Fluffy Scrunchie – ★★★★★ – What a cute and super soft scrunchie! I haven’t worn this yet, but this would actually be perfect for winter looks. Especially if you have a pink coat or sweater.
  • Pouffle – Snake Hair Clip – ★★★★★ – This hair clip is very stylish. I’m glad I picked the goldtone one because the lovely green eyes on the snake really stand out. This hair clip also comes in a silver colorway, but in the stock photos, the silver one doesn’t look like it has gemstone eyes.
  • NENE – Long-Sleeve V-Neck Mini Bodycon Dress – ★★★★★ – This dress is so soft and stretchy, and really comfortable to wear. I didn’t wear it outside yet, and only tried it on. Even though I got this during my spring haul, this item is more appropriate for fall and winter since it’s a sweater material. I love the ruched detailing on the skirt of this dress! If you’re not into pink, this dress also comes in a black colorway. I’m quite tempted to get the one in black too…
  • Hyoty – Fleece-Lined Leggings – ★★★★★ – I have a lot of fleece-lined leggings, but this was my first time finding a skin-color one. I think the nude color would look good if you don’t want to look like you’re wearing leggings, but you want to keep your legs warm. It doesn’t look totally realistic and doesn’t match my skintone, but I’m still giving it 5 stars since the product itself is high-quality, super comfy and stretchy, and will keep your legs warmer than regular leggings.
  • Whoosh – Padded Cropped Camisole Top – ★★☆☆☆ – This camisole is super cute, but the reason I’m giving it 2 stars is because it came defective. See the photo below; the strap is sewn incorrectly and is twisted. I thought about returning it, but I didn’t want to pay for return shipping, so I decided to keep it. I will probably wear it anyways, but it’s disappointing that it’s defective.
  • Nine Tails – Lettuce-Edge Off-Shoulder Rib-Knit Top – ★★★★★ – When I first saw this, I was worried it wouldn’t fit me since it looked so small. However, I was pleasantly surprised that it fit perfectly! The fabric is super stretchy and comfortable. It’s also a shirt that truly stays off-the-shoulder, so I was happy about that! With most off-the-shoulder shirts, I have an issue where they always creep up and look scoop neck.
  • GANGER – Short-Sleeve Frog-Button Knit Top – ★★★★☆ – This qipao-inspired top is super cute! It’s a jersey t-shirt material and has a fully functional frog-button on top. The frog-button took me a long time to do, so I wish that was easier to clasp and unclasp. It’s super flattering when worn.
  • Ginger Girl – Halter Neck Rib Knit Tank Top – ★★★★★ – This halter tank top is in a sweater rib knit material, and is super stretchy and comfortable. The halter neck is not adjustable, but it fit perfectly for me. I really love how this halter looks and am tempted to get other colors, but trying to have self-control since I already have a similar-looking ivory-colored one, which you can see in my Summer Haul.
  • Meigo – Lace Panel Long-Sleeve Top – ★★★★★ – This lace top has beautiful floral details! I was worried it would be scratchy, but it’s smooth and comfortable to wear. It looks so pretty under a dress! It comes in other colors like brown, white, beige, gray, and light brown. I’m quite tempted to get another colorway!
  • chuu – Super Skinny -5kg Denim Shorts vol.30 – ★★★★★ – These cuffed shorts come with a mid-rise cut and twill construction, and they’re so stretchy and comfortable! The pink color is just like the photos online, and it even comes with an authentication card so you know it’s authentic and not a knock-off. I got a Size Medium, and it fits perfectly! Definitely read through the size charts to find your fit. These shorts come in many different colors too.

What is your favorite item from this haul? Let me know in the comments if you have any of these items too! Happy shopping, and remember to use my code “3PEARLS” for your YesStyle hauls.

[YesStyle] Winter Haul Part 2: Fashion

On top of any YesStyle sales going on at the moment, use my code “3PEARLS” to get an additional discount off your entire order!

You can check out my First Haul, Spring Haul, and Summer Haul too. Part 1 of my Winter Haul is focused on the beauty products I got, which you can read here.

I did not have a Fall/Autumn haul, so here’s my winter haul! I put the beauty products from this haul in Part 1 of my Winter Haul review. Here’s the YesStyle haul at a glance:

Everything I got was on sale! YesStyle always has great sales going on, and you can get discounts on fashion, K-beauty, J-beauty, home goods, jewelry, shoes, and more! If you use their app, you can also get free gifts with your orders.

Let’s talk about the accessories first…

  • Loville – Thigh High Socks – ★★★★★ – Love these socks! They’re high-quality and comfortable. Exactly as pictured online. Great price! I was definitely impressed by the quality considering how cheap they are.
  • Reiro – Printed Chiffon Bow Hair Clip – ★★★★★ – This floral chiffon bow is so cute! I had trouble choosing which bow to get since all the designs and colors are adorable, but I decided to try the light blue with white daisies since I don’t have any light blue hair accessories yet. Highly recommend this bow hair clip!
  • SURELIN – Heart Layered Faux Leather Garter  – ★★★★★ – This garter is soooo cute! Love the heart detail. I bought the black garter from YesStyle before too, as part of my Summer Haul. The pink garter is equally perfect and cute! I haven’t had the opportunity to wear it yet, but I’d like to coordinate this with some of my pastel looks, and maybe create a pastel-punk look.
  • Pouffle – Heart Choker – ★★★★★ – This choker is so cute, and even though it’s from a different brand, it matches the pink garter I got perfectly. If you want a matching set, definitely buy both of these in pink! I bought the white heart choker from YesStyle before too, as part of my Summer Haul. I wore this heart choker with my kawaii look for Christmas.
  • YUGGI – Faux Pearl Pendant Layered Choker – ★★★★★ – Super impressed with this choker! It’s two layers, and sometimes they get tangled in storage, but that happens a lot with my necklaces. It’s pretty easy to detangle. I have sensitive skin, but wearing this necklace never irritated my skin. I’ve worn it many times already. It’s a very elegant piece of jewelry and also easy to match with outfits. I’m wearing this necklace in the first photo on this blog post.
  • EROPIA – Set: Floral Print Off-Shoulder Crop Top + Mini Skirt – ★★★☆☆ – So the listing was misleading for this one. I thought it was a top and skirt set, but the skirt is actually a sarong. It wraps around and ties. I think this would be more suited as a swimsuit coverup. If you wear the miniskirt like so, you’d risk flashing everyone. The quality is also not the best, and the fabric feels cheap. The sleeves on the top are also super tight; similar problem to the Asymmetric Short-Sleeve Plaid Cropped Blouse / A-Line Skirt I bought as part of my Summer Haul.
  • Dute – Asymmetric Sleeveless Midi A-Line Dress – ★★★★☆ – Love the punky design of this black dress! It’s a midi-length, although since I’m short, it’s almost maxi length on me. The fabric is the type that wrinkles super easily, so I knocked off one star for that. I also had to trim a bunch of loose threads. I haven’t worn this dress yet, but I’m debating whether to wear it by itself or layered over a sheer shirt first. Either way, this dress will look cool!
  • NENE – Long-Sleeve Paneled Mini A-Line Plaid Dress – ★★★★☆ – The design of this dress is so elegant and cute! The plaid has some glitter in it, which I didn’t notice from the stock photos. It’s true to size, and this dress is almost perfect. The only thing I didn’t like about it were the straps with buttons around the wrists because they constantly fall off. My wrists are really small, so I have the same issue with bangles, but I thought these straps would be fine since they have buttons – but they don’t go tight enough, plus there’s only one belt loop for them on each wrist. It would be more effective to have at least 2 belt loops on each wrist so the straps don’t fall off.
  • Aigan – Rabbit Embroidered Cardigan – ★★★★★ – Wow, this cardigan is so cute and cozy!! I love the design and colors, and the fabric is super soft. It comes in white, black, and pink colorways, so I chose the pink one but all 3 colorways are really cute. Definitely check out this cardigan sweater! Perfect for fairy kei or any kawaii look.
  • chuu – Super Skinny -5kg Jeans vol.14 – ★★★★☆ – Thick and high-quality jeans in a very light blue color. They were tight on me, but I probably should have sized up. I got the Sky Blue color is size 27 but I think 28 would have been better. Jeans are hard for me to shop for since even in the USA, I wear a wide variety of sizes (I’ve worn everything from 25 to 29, and also 4 petite, 6 petite, size Small, etc.). I struggled to get into these, but I’ve worn them a few times and they’re comfy when you get used to them. I do wish they were more stretchy! If you get these jeans, size up.
Authentication card for the Chuu -5kg jeans

Overall, this was a great haul! The only item I was truly disappointed in was the Eropia set. I’ll probably avoid the Eropia brand in the future on YesStyle… (Hopefully I’ll remember!) Are there any brands you’re trying to avoid?

If you’re shopping on YesStyle, use my code “3PEARLS” to get an additional discount off your entire order!

[Lolita Blog Carnival] Share A Bit About Your Favorite Piece and How You Acquired It

This week’s prompt is “Share A Bit About Your Favorite Piece & How You Acquired It.”

Birthday 2018

My favorite piece is one of my dream dresses: Angelic Pretty’s French Café in the red colorway. I’ve worn it for my birthday tea party two years in a row (and didn’t even realize this fact til one of my friends pointed it out). I always gravitated towards this dress among my dream dresses over the years, and after acquiring it, I still enjoy looking at it (and wearing it!). It’s currently hanging on the rack in my bedroom so I can look at it everyday.

Birthday 2019

How did I acquire my French Café JSK? Secondhand, of course! I can’t recall exactly when I purchased it, but it was a few years ago from a friend in the Boston Lolita Community. She was kind enough to let me pay her through a payment plan, and I purchased this JSK as a set with the headbow and socks, and I also purchased some other lolita clothing items from her as part of the same payment plan.

What’s your favorite lolita fashion piece? Share the story of how you’ve acquired your fave in the comments! I love hearing these stories.

YesStyle: First Haul

I’m so excited to share my first haul from YesStyle! I’ve checked out this site before but was wary of purchasing from it because there were so many items and I wasn’t even sure where to start. I finally decided to jump in during their spring sale and get a bunch of things at great deals. They offer free shipping if you spend $35 or more (and I hate paying for shipping, so free shipping is something I always look out for). Everyday, they also have Free Gifts you can claim. I totally forgot to claim a free gift during this haul, so I have to claim one next time.

On top of any sales going on at the moment, use the code “3PEARLS” to get an additional discount off your entire order! ^_^

Now, let’s take a look at my haul:

In my day-to-day life, I wear a lot of black… so of course, most of my new wardrobe additions are black too. I just find this color so easy to match! I got four tops in black during this haul.

  1. Short-Sleeve Mock-Neck Knit Top – ★★★☆☆ – This top isn’t the best quality (feels cheaply made, and there were lots of loose threads), but it was less than $10 so I can’t complain. It’s a stretchy fabric and the zipper is fully functional. The size chart was accurate.
  2. Heart Cutout Short-Sleeved T-Shirt – ★★★★☆ – I was worried about sizing for this item, but a size Medium fit me perfectly! The T-shirt’s cotton material was super soft, and the sheer heart cutout inset was surprisingly smooth. The inset wasn’t itchy like I thought it would be. I found this shirt to be higher quality than the first one.
  3. Bell-Sleeve Chiffon Blouse – ★★★★☆ – Love this item! The fabric is so pretty and it drapes well when worn. It’s better quality than I expected; the only thing I dislike about it is the button at the back of the neck. This button was difficult to do and undo (but I tend to have difficulty with buttons when they’re in the back). It’s sheer, so I recommend wearing a camisole with it.
  4. Ruffle Trim Blouse – ★★★☆☆ – This is a very stylish top, but the photos on the website are not accurate. The top I received had smaller ruffles than what is shown on the website stock photos. This isn’t a big deal though; it still looks fine when worn.

Besides my black tops, I also got some clothing pieces in other colors.

  1. Strappy Ruffled Floral Top – ★★★☆☆ – This top is super cute but feels cheaply made. I thought it would be embroidered, but the white floral patterns are printed on. The fabric is very thin, but not see-through. I had to cut off a lot of loose threads.
  2. Sheer Long-Sleeved Blouse + Camisole – ★★★★☆ – This set really impressed me! The quality is great, and both the camisole and the blouse fit me perfectly. The only complaint I have: there are three buttons on the back of the neck… I always have difficulty doing and undoing buttons at the back of the neck, so having 3 to deal with is frustrating for me (and I’m tempted to just… not button the back). If anyone has tips for doing these buttons efficiently, let me know! I have too many black shirts, but I’m tempted to get this in the black colorway as well…
  3. Plaid A-Line Pinafore Dress – ★★★★☆ – This is the priciest item in my haul, but it was still less than $20. I wasn’t sure if Size S or Size M would fit me better, so I chose Medium to be safe. I’m glad I did! It has a loose fit when you first put it on, but you can tighten it around the waist with the attached buckles. There were a few loose threads, and the acrylic blend feels a bit itchy which is why I didn’t rate it 5 stars.

I also couldn’t resist adding a few accessories to my haul…

  1. Faux Leather Heart Buckle Belt – ★★★☆☆ – This belt is super cute!! But the faux leather is… really faux. It feels almost like paper or cardboard. Definitely be gentle with this belt; I’m not sure how long it will last if you’re rough with it. The first photo in this post is a pic of me wearing the belt. It looks great when worn! I wish the quality was nicer, but for less than $5, I can’t complain.
  2. 925 Sterling Silver Non-matching Rhinestone Moon Dangle Earrings – ★★★☆☆ – These earrings are so cute! I wish they had metal backings though. The backings they came with are the clear plastic kind, that you sometimes find with hook earrings. They are difficult to put on and remove from stud earrings. The photos on the website are also inaccurate: the chain on the longer mismatched earring is longer in the photos than the one I received.
  3. 925 Sterling Silver Petal Hook Earrings – ★★★★☆ – These earrings are so pretty and elegant! I wish they came with backings, but it’s no big deal. I might use the backings on the other pair of earrings with this one, and then share my other stud backings with the mismatching earrings I got. Both sets of earrings are real sterling silver; I have sensitive ears and I didn’t have a reaction to either of these.

If you shop at YesStyle, let me know if you have any of these items!

If you’re going to shop now, check out their Limited Deals for great discounts. Use the code “3PEARLS” to get an additional discount off your entire order when you shop.

Happy Spring Shopping!~ ❀
