Cute Fashion Haul + Review ♥

Image result for divider pixel

Hello friends! Today I have a very special review for you all. A cute fashion haul sponsored by Spreepicky.com ♥ I can't express how excited I was to be partnering with Speepicky again. The owners are always very sweet and considerate. I originally wanted to do a cute haul video but, I had some sizing issues which I will talk about in a moment~ 

Shipping was very fast and took about 2 weeks to ship to me in America which is really good! This adorable Yellow Bunny Pancake Dress ♥ is the first item I will be talking about today. This dress comes in two other colorways (pink, brown) and comes in two sizes (S / M). The sizes run small so please, check the measurements on the website before ordering.

There were two small issues that I had with this dress. The first issue that I had was that one of the bows is slightly coming undone. The bows on the dress are removable but, I think they add a very cute touch. This issue can easily fixed with some glue but, I couldn't find my hot glue gun, sadly... easy fix! I'm not hurt by it at all. I love the lace detailing and cute red buttons on the front. The overall style of the dress is adorable!

The dress is lined so, you don't have to wear bloomers or shorts if you don't want to. This is really great because I dislike bloomers.. hehe since it's lined you also don't have to worry about your undies showing or anything~ The petticoat I'm using is my BEST petticoat. It is also from Spreepicky which you can find here ~ ♥ This petticoat is the best thing ever... it gives me the perfect amount of poof without having to layer more than one. I highly recommend it~

The biggest issue that I had with this dress which was MY fault ....I assumed that it was elasticated at the arms/waist. It's actually has no elastic in the arms/waist so there isn't a whole lot of give. This made the dress hard for me to wear, sadly... It is my fault because I assumed even though the measurements have no indication that it is elasticated. I went back and realized my mistake.. I should have checked more carefully.. please pay close attention to the measurements on the site so that you do not repeat my mistake.

The print has bunnies, pancakes, and gingham along the bottom which is why I fell in love with this dress. Even though I had a sizing issue, I honestly can't bring myself to let it go... I want to keep it. I'm attempting to live a healthier lifestyle so, maybe in time I will fit this beautiful dress. ; ~ ; I love it so much honestly... I hope I can fit into it one day..

Next up ~ Pink Lovely Bunny Lolita Shoes ♥ I actually bought these myself to go with the dress in Red but red was sold out in my size. Since they were sold out of the Red shoes, they asked if I wanted the pink ones instead and I said yes! The staff at Spreepicky made sure that I picked the correct size which is great considering I have a reputation for ordering the wrong size. These are perfect! I now know my size woo ~ ♥

The details on this shoe are absolutely gorgeous! I ordered mine in a size 39 which is a USA 7 ~ 7.5. If you're unsure, the staff at Spreepicky with help you with sizing. Mine fit well but, thanks to my very weak ankles I can't walk in them. ; n ; I'm not good with heels but I figured since they're wedges, I'd be okay. I was wrong omg I was wobbling around so much, aw!

The bunnies on the front can be removed if you want to~ and the buckles are actually buttons so, they're really easy to put on and take off without a hassle. These shoes are so beautiful, I'm so sad I can't walk in them! ;; oh well.. my friend is going to give them a loving home, at least. ♥ Worth it <333

I saved the best for last. Card Captor Sakura Pink Phone Cover ♥ This case is too cute for words! the design is crisp, clear, and beautiful~ It's also very well constructed and lightweight. I'm so in love with this case, honestly, I can't get enough of this cuteness.

Spreepicky on Instagram ♥

The case opens up like so, and there's a space to snap your phone in. There is also a slot for cards and a magnetic closure to keep your belongings safe and sound! I don't know what more to say other than I really do love this case. It's good quality and well worth the price. It is also available in MANY phone models! Yay! ♥ Check it out!

Hello Cuties! I have a really cute post for you all today.  I have received a phone case from Sweet Escape DecodenSweet Escape Decoden makes the cutest decoden cases in various designs. She can also make custom cases by request. Let's get onto the review~ 

My decoden case took less than a week to arrive after being shipped which is great! The packaging was so very cute and I could tell immediately that so much love, time, and effort goes into each order. The cases listed on Sweet Escape Decoden are also very affordable considering everything that goes into them I'd expect to pay more. I'm very impressed!

I received my decoden phone case, a cute dust plug / charm, and she even included some candy which is so sweet! I'll talk about the individual items in the next bit. But, I just wanted to say how much I appreciate all that went into my order. It's so sweet!

Here's my case! My case is a pastel whip with Korilakkuma & Rilakkuma cabochons. There's also some pastel sweets, a rose, and pastel wings with hearts and glitter. I saw this case and it screamed me!!! I love it so so much omg I'm obsessed! It's not listed on Sweet Escape Decoden Etsy but, you can request to have a case made like this one.

The case fits on my phone perfectly and unlike most cases, it's easy to remove! I always have the hardest time taking my cases off so, I was really surprised at how easily this one came off. 

Here are some close ups of my super cute case as well as the dust plug / charm! The quality of this case is amazing and I can tell based off prior experiences, that this case is going to last me a long time. It's sturdy and I don't feel like the pieces are going to fall off or anything like that so, that's good! I'm really impressed!

I am very satisfied with my case and I would highly recommend Sweet Escape Decoden if you're looking for really cute decoden that's good quality and affordable. Big big thank you to Sweet Escape Decoden for sponsoring this review! I love my case so much!


please put "pastelcutie" in the notes 
section when you place an order! 

Thank you!

Cute Fashion Stores (Online) ♡

Hello friends! A lot of people have been asking me where I buy my clothes from along with all of my other cute things so I decided to make a blog post so it's easier for everyone and you'll have all of the information in the same place!

These days I get a lot of my fashion items from Tokyo Otaku Mode. I love TOM because they sell authentic Japanese fashion imported from Japan. I can order authentic items without the hassel of a shopping service or the fees of a shopping service.

Tokyo Otaku Mode has popular J-fashion brands like Liz Lisa, Ank Rouge, Swankiss, Milklim, Listen Flavor!, and more! I know with TOM, I am getting authentic, quality items. It is a little pricer than some but, for imported brand I can't complain too much. And throughout my orders, my items have been amazing quality so, it's really worth it in, my opinion.

I also have a coupon for this month! You can use the code PastelCutieAug for $5.00 off when you spend $30.00 or more~ yay yay ! ^^

Another place where I get my clothes is Kawaii GoodsKawaii Goods makes custom clothing and accessories. All the designs are created by the owner and are one of a kind. There's also a wide rage of sizes and most items are available in plus sizes! With Kawaii Goods I know I am getting high quality items and they're so so cute, too! The owner is so very sweet and deserves so much support~! I also have a coupon for this shop which is "pastelcutie" for a discount on your order at checkout ^^ 


  Another shop that I love and adore so much is Holley Tea TimeHolley Tea Time makes custom designs and accessories. I just took a look at their new collection and everything is so cute omg I'm crying! I love this indie brand so much. They also hav a wide range of sizes going up to 3XL which I think is really amazing. Everyone can be cute, I love it! I also have a coupon for this shop which is "PastelCutie" for a discount of 10% at checkout ^^ so sweet !~

Bonne Chance Collections is an online dress shop. They come out with new collections very often so, there are new designs up on their store! I love this shop and I get a lot of my dresses here. The one thing I will say is, they're pretty popular so, once they release a new collection things tend to sell out fast. You can look them up on instagram to keep up with and be the first to know when new collections are released on their site. The owner is really kind, as well which is always good!

Spree Picky is another really cute shop that I get a lot of my clothes from! Spree Picky has so much cute stuff and I love this store so much! They also have a plus size section on their store. Spree Picky sell clothes, shoes, wigs, accessories and so many more cute things. Spree Picky also offer free shipping on orders over $30.00! I have a new coupon for them as well which is "pastelcutie" for a discount on your entire purchase ^^ ♥ I'll be doing a haul/review video on my Youtube Channel, soon~!

 And lastly, I'm sure you all want to know where I get my lolita fashion items, yeah? Bodyline is one of the many sites that I buy my lolita fashion items. If you're on a strict budget, this site is for you. Though lolita fashion can be pretty expensive, regardless. This is just a more affordable site to purchase lolita. Bodyline is based in Japan so it does take a while to receive items unless you pay extra for expedite shipping. They also have a little bit of a wider rage of sizes and a lot of their items are available in 3L.

Now, when I buy brand lolita items (like Angelic Pretty for example) I always buy secondhand. There are a couple reasons for this. One being it is cheaper than buying new AP and two, because a lot of the prints I want are older and no longer available unless you buy secondhand. You can buy secondhand on sites like Lolita Desu and Lace Market. Though I usually buy from friends who are selling since a lot of them happen to be current or retired lolitas. Buying secondhand is cheaper but it can still be pretty expensive. I once bought an AP dress secondhand for $300.... so buying brand may not be for everyone especially those on a budget.

A lot of the clothes I have and wear are often items I've just accumulated over time and I can't always remember where they're from. Hopefully this kind of narrows it down for those of you looking to purchase cute clothing.

That's all for now! As always, thank you so much for reading and I hope to see you soon!
