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!

LemonyLemon: Rings

LemonyLemon, an Etsy store run by Emma Lehmann, was kind enough to sponsor a batch of adorable rings!

Emma mailed me a package via International AirMail. This bubble mailer kept all the rings safe during their international travel!

Here is the bundle I found inside the mailer:

DSC_2167_Fotor_Collage As you can see, the bubble wrap and plastic bag keep all the rings in one place. Emma said you can use the coupon code “ALICE15” when you shop at LemonyLemon~! Don’t miss out on this great deal. Anyone is welcome to use this code.

I was very pleased with the care Emma took to wrap her products. Each individual ring was wrapped in tissue paper. This is the first time I have seen someone do this! Nothing came damaged.

all the rings

These rings are so colorful and each piece is unique! The pastel rings would be perfect for sweet lolita and fairy kei, and the gold rose ring would be lovely for gothic lolita and classic lolita. I love the details on the cookie rings! These rings would also look super cute with casual wear.

Now, onto how I styled these rings… I chose a few pastel rings to wear with a sweet lolita coordinate.

beauty

The pastel rings, especially the sweets rings, match the OTT sweet lolita aesthetic so well~! I really love the rings’ combination of pastel colors and bold colors. The pink bow ring has a really cute purple detailed band that makes it stand out. I think that one is one of my favorite rings!

heyy

All of the rings are adjustable, which is great. You can bend the bands to fit your fingers. My fibers are really skinny, so unfortunately, most of the rings were loose. They fit on my thumbs, but I don’t like wearing rings on my thumbs. Wearing them on my other fingers was fine; I just had to be careful. If I waved my hand too enthusiastically, the rings would fly off. But these rings are really sturdy! When the rings fell off and hit the ground, they didn’t break.

hey

I am really impressed by how well-crafted these rings are. I was really scared that they would break after smashing into the ground, but everything was in tact and the band was easy to bend back into a circle.

I used the gold rose ring as part of my Saturday coordinate for RuffleCon:

I already had a black rose ring from Forever21, so the gold rose ring was a lovely addition to my coord. I love the cute band on this gold ring!~ It’s in the same style as the pink bow ring.

Today, I decided to wear the remaining three LemonyLemon rings that I had not used in a coordinate yet. Instead of lolita fashion, I decided to try something different! I wanted something fun and more casual, but still cute. I also tried something new with my makeup.

I hope you found this post helpful!

Here is some extra info that Emma would like me to share with you all:

“I can do custom orders for nails and some accessories (I’ve done a few custom orders, such as 3D nails, a hair ribbon in a different colour, and earrings in different colour combos), so requests are always welcome. There’s not really an interesting back-story unfortunately, I started off doing nails as a hobby and people really liked them so I started up an Etsy store, which then eventually led to making clay charms, hair accessories, and some deco-den type of items. Things are just a tad slow at the moment due to my personal life, but I’m hoping to get more time in the near future to make more items and refurbish my store (ie. New logo and such).”
