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!

[Review] Alicorn Dream: Kawaii Accessories

Alicorn Dream sponsored a package of kawaii hair goodies~! First, I’ll go over the packaging. Here is the box I received:

DSC_0127.jpg

I thought the little decorative touches were adorable! It was around Christmastime, so Ariella (owner of Alicorn Dream) added a red bow and a little note to the box.

Inside the box, everything was packed in a cute pouch, with a layer of bubble wrap on top.

DSC_0128.JPG

The pouch would be great as a reusable bag to store little trinkets!

Isn’t it so cute?

Most of the items arrived without any issues. I didn’t know what I was receiving, so the contents of the box were total surprises!

DSC_0133

Here is a list of the items I got:

DSC_0137

There is a string of faux pearls that fell off from something. I am not sure what it fell off from, but it’s not a big deal since I didn’t notice any of the pieces were broken.

These handmade items are all really cute, and I’m pleased with them. They’re pretty easy to style as well! I do have a suggestion for Alicorn Dream: in the future, double check your products before sending them out! I found some strings of glue on some of the items that I had to peel off. It would be great to remove any stray glue pieces before sending out your products to ensure a distraction-free reception.

Now, onto the product styling!

DSC_0427.jpg

My favorite item in this set was this hair corsage! (I’m biased though; red is my favorite color.)

I styled it in a lolita coordinate featuring my favorite Angelic Pretty OP, Candy Fun Fair!

You can check out the coordinate rundown here.

DSC_0368.jpg

I styled this headband with the dress I got from FashionKawaii. The flower (with the pink and green color accents) matches the dress perfectly! The headband is also comfortable to wear; it’s not too tight around my head (even with a wig on) like some headbands.

DSC_0385.jpg

Above, you can see this adorable hair accessory. It’s on a French clip, and it’s easy to clip into your wig or your real hair. I love the style of the faux rose; it almost looks like a mini crown, especially with the way it sits on the clip. Around the edges of the clip are little bows, hearts, and flowers. There’s a string of pearls on one side as well! This hair accessory is both elegant and whimsical.

I borrowed this pink cutsew from my friend Grace, so I didn’t want to pin the brooch to it since the cutsew does not belong to me. However, this brooch would be super cute with this pastel cutsew! It would also go well with a more muted or dark color scheme, such as beige and white or black and white. I believe that this brooch is really versatile!

DSC_0410.jpg

The above barrette is also a whimsical and versatile piece that has lots of cute tiny details. I love the little flowers and bow and the blue ribbon background for them. This barrette would go well with many outfits, both casual ones and over-the-top ones.

Thank you for reading! Check out this Facebook album for more photos of the pieces from Alicorn Dream. I may add more photos to this Facebook album soon, so stay tuned! If you have any questions about these accessories, do not hesitate to ask me or Alicorn Dream. The artist behind Alicorn Dream is super nice, and she also responds in a timely manner. I wish you all a great week!

Born Pretty Store: Creepy & Cute

Hi everyone! I am excited to share my second review for Born Pretty Store with you all. You may remember my first review post for their Cat Ear Headband and Chain Hair Comb. You can use the 10% off coupon code “WUT10″ if you make a purchase from Born Pretty Store! unnamed This time around, I’m going to review a new batch of items:

All the sponsored products arrived in a padded mailer. The customs declaration said “Electronic,” which is not true at all, but the package arrived safely nevertheless.

DSCN0615

Here are photos showing how each product was wrapped:

Three of the items were plastic-wrapped, but the Skeleton Hand Hair Barrette and the Pearl Headband were not. I do not have any complaints about these items. I was happy to receive them all! They’re a cool mix of creepy & cute items.

For my Luo Tianyi gyaru-inspired closet cosplay, I used the pearl headband. It’s a super cute touch to the outfit~!

_DSC1027

I also used this headband for the above outfit. This headband goes great with this wig from PennyDreads! This headband is a comfortable and versatile piece.

_DSC7791

For my PennyDreads review, I also wore the red skeleton hair clip from Born Pretty Store! This clip is definitely the perfect creepy-cute touch to the outfit. It goes so well with this wig, and also with my real hair.

DSCN1303

Here, you can see the cute faux pearl bracelet. It’s stretchy, so it’s really easy to put on and take off. No need for clasps! The gold-tone bow charm is a lovely addition.

DSCN1302

Isn’t it so cute? I think this bracelet would be lovely for a gyaru or lolita coordinate. I definitely hope to wear it with some coords in the future!

DSCN1298

Now, check out the rings Born Pretty Store sent me!

DSCN1295

These are awesome punky rings that will go well with a plethora of outfits. The angel wing ring is a good size – large enough to be noticeable, but not too large. It’s comfy to wear and fits well on my ring finger. The other ring is the claw ring, and I love how it looks like an actual claw holding onto my finger.

DSCN1291

And here’s a photo of the rings’ underside:

DSCN1293

They’re both adjustable, so I’m sure these rings can fit on your fingers too.

DSCN1288

So what do you think of these rings? Do you have a favorite? I can’t pick a favorite to be honest… I love both of these rings equally! They’re both silver-tone, so I can wear them together and they match! They also fit together due to a bird theme… Wings/feathers, plus talons!

_DSC7725

All of these items are under $3, by the way! Yes, I said under $3. They’re so cheap, so feel free to splurge on a bunch of accessories from Born Pretty Store~!

You should check out Born Pretty Store‘s Jewelry & Accessories department. If anything interests you, feel free to use the coupon code “WUT10″ to get 10% off. There’s also a 50% off stationery sale until August 20. Happy Shopping~!
