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!

Tips for Surviving the Summer in Lolita


How do you make it through the summer in all these frills?

I will try my best to give some tips! I do not wear Lolita everyday, but I hope to eventually become a lifestyle Lolita. In the summer, the weather gets hot, so I have already pondered how to wear Lolita and still be comfortable in the heat of summer.

In my opinion, it is okay to go casual. When it is really hot out, I would rather dress more casually than overheat. For example, I have paired a printed skirt with a solid-colored cotton shirt to battle the heat.


It’s just a plain red t-shirt, but I think the outfit still fits with the Lolita aesthetic. I skipped a wig and decided to keep my natural hair for the coord, since wigs can trap heat and make me feel less comfortable outside. Instead of wearing a large hair accessory such as a bonnet or a jumbo headbow, I wore a small barrettes in my hair. I think less hair accessories can help keep your hair cool in the summer heat (or at least I feel more comfortable with small barrettes when it’s hot out). You could also wear a nice sun hat with a wide brim as part of your coordinate to help shade your face from the sun.


In a more recent casual coordinate, I paired a red t-shirt with a high-waisted strawberry skirt. In my sort-of-curly hair (my friend curled my hair, but it didn’t last too long; my hair does not take well to curling), I am wearing a small barrette and a jumbo hair clip.

My method for wearing Lolita in the heat: go casual! I try my best to stick to the Lolita aesthetic while attempting casual coordinates.. (Although I skipped the petticoat in that high-waisted skirt coord. I only wore a petticoat for the photo. xD)

Here are some items I think would be great for a Lolita in the summer:

1. A one-piece dress

The great thing about this item is that you can skip the blouse and still fit in with the proper Lolita aesthetic. Go with a breathable fabric such as cotton for the dress and choose a short-sleeved piece over a long-sleeved one. Avoid a high neckline style if possible (since necks can be sweaty places!). If it is really hot and you want to wear a JSK without a blouse, go for it! Even though JSKs are meant to be worn with blouses, whether or not you wear a blouse is your personal choice. Do what makes you feel comfortable!

DSC_2101 - Version 2

I wore this Bodyline OP and Headbow set that I got off the EGL Comm Sales on International Lolita Day. I paired this set with a necklace, two rings, a barette, a pair of cute crew socks, and mary-janes. I wore a light petticoat to minimize the layers.

2. Ankle socks

In cool weather, I always wear over-the-knee socks or knee socks over tights or leggings to keep my legs warm. When it’s warm, I am usually okay with wearing knee socks (since I’m usually cold), but I know that sometimes, it gets hot! For some people, wearing knee socks or thick socks can be unbearable in the heat. I have seen a lot of cute ankle socks lately, so I think this would be a great summer alternative to knee socks and OTK socks. (If you find cute crew socks, crew socks could also work for the summer!)

Some examples of cute ankle socks!


Here is a better look at the crew socks I wore with my International Lolita Day casual coord. I love the ballet-slipper design!

3. Hair scrunchies

There are a ton of cute hair scrunchies and hair ties out there! Personally, I prefer to tie up my hair in hot weather. When my hair is all over my neck, I feel more uncomfortable in the heat. In the summer, you can tie your hair back in a ponytail or in twin pigtails. You could also do a cute side ponytail, or braid your hair! An updo or bun would be another (very elegant) possibility. You can use hair scrunchies in your real hair, but if you are wearing a wig, you could also style your wig with hair scrunchies!


There are a wide variety of hair scrunchies!~ (I love all of these scrunchies and I hope to use them in future coordinates! I’ve had these lying around since elementary school though. xD I used to wear them all the time as a little girl.)

4. Bolero or Cardigan

A short-sleeved or three-quarter-sleeved bolero or cardigan is a cute way to stay covered up in the summer heat. Look for a thin or open-knit one so you can keep cool while maintaining modesty! You could skip the blouse and wear a bolero or cardigan over a JSK as well. The less layers you wear, the cooler you will be. You can probably find cheap loliable boleros or cardigans easily in local stores too. (Even a plain solid-color one could work in many coords! A basic bolero or cardigan can be worn in and out of Lolita.) If you want a made-for-Lolita bolero or cardigan at a good price, check community sales online, or local swap meets if there are any.

5. A summer hat

There are many cute and functional summer hats out there, and I think many of them are loliable. Go for a wide-brimmed hat for the most protection against the sun, but you can also choose to wear an adorable boater hat or a simple straw hat. If you are wearing a floral dress or skirt, a hat with silk flowers on it would be a cute addition to the coordinate. You might be able to make a cute visor hat work for a Lolita coordinate as well (for example, use a pastel pink visor with a pink sweet lolita summer coordinate).


6. A parasol

I do not have a Lolita parasol or umbrella, but I love seeing this accessory in Lolita coordinates. Parasols provide great shade from the sun while also acting as a stylish accessory. If you want an easy-to-carry parasol, look for a collapsible one or a light one. That way, it will not weigh you down when you aren’t using it. There are so many gorgeous lace parasols and parasols/umbrellas with ruffles along the edges that I’ve seen online. I wish I could find a parasol in a local store though. Unfortunately, I do not have advice on where to find a good parasol. Brand Lolita parasols are really pricey, but also really gorgeous. Maybe someday I will get a Lolita parasol? It’s definitely on my wishlist!

7. Remember your summer essentials!

Sunblock is important: you do not want to get sunburns! Sunburns are not fun. 😦 Bug repellent is also a good idea since you do not want to get tick or mosquito bites. You can easily find combination sunblock and bug repellent lotion! Lip balm with sunblock is also a good thing to stash in your purse. Also, remember to drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration! Stay safe in the summer.
