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.

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~!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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~!

Review: Sweet Pink Dreams

Sweet Pink Dreams sent me a package of lovely items! You should check out their shop for cute items~! They sell kawaii handmade accessories as well as new and pre-owned Japanese stationery. They even sell awesome false lashes!

The package I received in the mail looked like simple brown packaging, but when I opened the outer layer, I found a Priority Mail bubble mailer. Even though the outside layer got dirty during transit, the Priority Mail mailer was a clean inner layer that protected the contents well.

DSC_0032_Fotor_Collage

Inside the Priority Mail package was another layer of protection: a cute plastic bag with a spider print!

DSC_0034

Here are the contents of the bag:

DSC_0038

The package included two jumbo puffy hair bows, two sets of eyelashes, one bat necklace, two sweets rings, and one twin-star brooch.

Here are the two sets of false lashes:
DSC_0040

They are both really cute! I love the designs~! I usually prefer dramatic spiky lashes over the simple one-length lashes.

Here are the rings:

DSC_0043

They’re both covered in a glaze of glitter! So they’re sparkly and shiny. I think they’re both cute jumbo rings that would work well with sweet lolita or fairy kei (or just casually when you want to add some cuteness to your outfit!).

Check out these cute accessories:

DSC_0044

They both remind me of cookies! The twin-star brooch has rhinestone details and an adorable string of pastel faux pearls. The bat pendant is a vibrant lime green and the necklace chain has miniature stone beads accenting the area near the pendant. Both the brooch and the necklace pendant are covered in glitter! The glitter didn’t shed too much, which is great; I think the glitter will stay on even if you wear the accessories for long periods of time.

Here is a photo of the two bows with flash:

And without flash:

The bows are both very puffy, and they feel soft, not hard. The clips in the back are sturdy and attached securely to the bows. I love these bows!

SweetPinkDreamsIf I had to choose my favorite item out of this lot, it would be the bow I wore for the above look. Take a look at Sweet Pink Dreams; I’m sure you’ll find things you like! Check out my Facebook album for photos of these products.

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!

block out address

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.

closeups

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:

_DSC2187-f

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).”
