I’M WHALE

Standard

I don’t buy very much these days, always trying to save cash for my bills. Plus the weak yen is making it more and more expensive to pay off my student loans in dollars back home ;_; What I mostly buy are work clothes which are really boring and usually gotten from Uniqlo.

But recently I bought a small amount of fun stuff I’d like to share!

First up are the lolita/otome related buys!

I bought this Jane Marple necklace because I have the matching dress. I think. More details below.

I like the jewelry in this series because they remind me of “bottle keeps“, Japanglish for a bottle tag for a bottle kept in your name in a local bar. I just learned now this is not a real phrase in English…

And I also have to matching bracelet… or is it??

When I put them together on the dress, the necklace seems to match but it’s a darker navy blue, but the color of the bracelet is much lighter. So what series goes with what? I don’t mind the color difference but it’s just puzzling.

Next up was a very cheap (1800 yen) no brand bonnet from Closet Child. It seemed like a good base that I could spruce up with more roses or something so I bought it.

It’s totally black inside but my camera likes working hard and making fake colors appear.

Next are the normal clothes! I bought everything here in Harajuku on or near Takeshita Street.

Shitty shirt for 1000 yen. It fits a bit weird but it’s ok.

Summery set from Ehka Sopo. They’re kind of a morigirl brand that evolved a bit to stay relevant. I really love this outfit and want to wear it all summer! It was on sale but still a little pricey for the two pieces. I’m not really a gingham person but it was just the right type I like.

Next up is a sweater! It’s so dumb to buy a sweater in June but I admired this silly thing in winter and now it was reduced to 1900 yen so I had to get it. That whale is the best.

Love that grumpy whale face!

Until next time!

I bought some stuff I shouldn’t have, now I will share it with you!

On Tuesday I went to the Closet Child in Harajuku because there was tons of Mary Magdalene uploaded to the blog and I like going to visit (and sometimes try on things) even if I don’t buy anything. I’m at the upper end of sizing for VM and MM so it’s always a good reference for me to try things on because their cuts are so often recycled.

There were about 6 or 7 MM dresses which is pretty rare! MM is fairly hard to find at Closet Child. I tried on 3 dresses – 2 fit terribly but one was just right! I had the shop girl hold it for a while and went up to the gothic floor where I found this:

What is it? A Triple Fortune nun headdress! I couldn’t believe my luck! I am the proud owner of a Meta nun dress and was looking for something like this to top it off for a while. So in love ❤

I feel like a GoT character in this

It’s so ridiculous I don’t imagine I can wear it much but I had to buy it. It had a “stain” so the price was pretty reasonable. The internet says it’s from 2007.

Anddd so, I already broke the seal by buying that, so I thought I’d get the dress I wanted as well. Gotta sell something in its place now! It’s Mary Magdalene’s Irena Fleur Dress in Navy (looks black in some lighting).

It came with the tags still on! And my favorite part – shirring! An MM dress that might actually be comfortable? I hope so!

I’m looking forward to the weekend and meeting friends. I’ve been feeling a little down lately for a variety of reasons so maybe it will help to get out of the house and be around humans.

Thanks for reading!
