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