Lolita Fashion on Taobao (Part 3): 11/11 Edition!

Have you heard of 11/11? 11/11 is Singles’ Day and is a huge shopping festival with lots of sales, discounts, lucky bags, etc. You can shop the sales at Taobao, Tmall, AliExpress.com, and some other stores and websites participate as well.

Even though I could care less about Black Friday sales… I love browsing and shopping during 11/11! Sometimes, I spend hours just online window shopping. And when the budget allows for it, snagging some great deals during 11/11 is the best!

Some of the Taobao stores display their 11/11 sales more obviously than other. When you’re on certain pages, you may be able to see a promo for the 11/11 like the following for Bobon21:

Bobon21 is a shop with gyaru, larme, etc. styles and some pieces can be loliable!

On Empty Wardrobe, you can see where the promotion is outlined under the second little red box under the price, where you see 11/11-11/11:

The promotion above is for every 200 spent, you can get 20 discounted – and there’s no cap.

At Confession Ballon, you can even buy 1 blouse and get the second blouse free:

On some shops, like Rotate Ballet, you can see the 11/11 sale banner bright and clear:

I’ve had my eye on the brand Yolanda for a while, and it looks like they have a bunch of 11/11 discounted items too:

I’ve never purchased anything from the above shops before, so I can’t vouch for quality, but they have great ratings from Taobao shoppers from what I’ve seen in customer reviews and photos on the site. If you’ve purchased from any of these stores, definitely share your thoughts! And of course, share any other 11/11 deals that you find.

To make it easier to shop and browse, I also recommend the Google Chrome extension that automatically translates webpages. This only works on text though, so text within images are a no-go.

Happy Shopping!

FashionKawaii: Bunny Princess

DSC_0241

Have you heard of the shop FashionKawaii? It’s an adorable Storenvy shop with a great selection of fashion items. If you’re interested in purchasing something, use the coupon code “pearlpeony” for 10% off!

Recently, I styled two items from this shop together in an outfit inspired by the idea of a Bunny Princess! Here are the two items featured in this outfit: Sweet Floral Chiffon Dress and Kawaii Rabbit Ears Coat.

I’m working on a review for the Chiffon Dress, which will be posted soon. In general, I am pleased with both of these items! They’re really cute both separately and together.

The coat is not warm enough for the dreary New England winter, but it would be a great coat for springtime or autumn… (Or for an abnormally warm winter day. xD) The coat is lined, but the lining has a lot of loose threads. I was shivering in this outfit since I’m usually bundled in thick jeans, winter boots, a thick sweater, a cozy scarf, and my trusty old winter jacket in this type of weather.

But… this coat is so much cuter than my plain all-black winter jacket. My favorite part of the coat is the hood with the bunny ears!

For this outfit, I tried something new: normally, I wouldn’t go for this kind of look with a floral dress. The Sweet Floral Chiffon Dress would be great for a hime gyaru or roma gyaru coordinate, but I didn’t feel confident in my wardrobe to be able to pull off one of these looks. I tried to think of something cute I could coordinate with this dress, and I wondered if it would work with the Rabbit Ears Coat. The coat definitely brings out a quirky and cute feel to the dress that the dress wouldn’t originally have! Along with pastel accessories such as the macaron necklace, floral bows, and boots, I think the outfit comes together nicely as something a Bunny Princess would wear on a casual day. I never thought I would throw these two items together in a coord, but I am glad I did! I hope I can have more fun with coordinates in the future. I’m not sure which substyle this look would fit into, but hey, who cares? Playing around with fashion is fun!

What do you think? Do you prefer the Dress or the Coat? I would love to hear your opinions!

I would also like to take a moment to thank Grace from the local Lolita community for taking these photos for me. I appreciate it!
