20% off Liz Lisa + Tralala Things

Hi! Hi!

Ah... I buy so many things lately...
I blame cute Spring fashion.

A while ago, TokyoKawaiiLife (I'm trying to get used to saying that,) and they had 20% off selected spring items, since they Liz Lisa hasn't had many sales this season *Why?!?!?  I decided to look and see what they had on sale, and actually I found a few times I was interested in so I decided to buy.
Sorry wallet. 

Liz Lisa Shorts in blue
I debated and debated which colour I should get in these because I really love this print. Personally, I knew I wanted the blue in either the dress or the shorts at the very least (Still waiting on the dress to go on sale, please,) so I decided to get them in blue in the end and I'm happy I did.
The fabric on these is nice and thick as well so they are a nice early spring item.

I actually think they'll be really versatile though - the stock photo shows the shorts paired with a knit but I think it would be nice with a blouse as well.
I also think if you have somewhere that you would like to dress up nicely you can wear these shorts or you can dress them down as well.

Belt + details 
Lovely scollop edge.
In real life, these shorts look just like they do online.

I like these on, but they're quite poofy so I'm thinking I might want to wear a longer top to hide it (but then I'll cover the belt!) or just rocking it. I really like the length of these on me as well, they're not micro short (hate micro shorts)

Back pockets as well! I just really love the pattern okay!?? ^.^

Tralala set
 - Link! - Link! -

Again, I had no idea which colour I wanted but I went with the blue in the end because blue is really trendy and cute!
And I wasn't sold on the lavender buttons on the pink set and I'm very weary of lilac to be honest (I don't think it's a colour that always suits me,)




I think only the top was in the sale at the time, the skirt was actually in a different sale (but it was still on sale!) I really like this set because I think it looks nice together or separated. 
I was a little nervous the skirt would be micro tiny but it's actually not a bad length.

I honestly don't know if I've ever have the confidence to wear this set outside lol! I'm not sure how I feel about midriff bearing sets.
I'm glad I got this one because this one doesn't show any belly button which I think is important when wearing things like this because this is so fitted it won't move and you won't risk showing too much skin.

Tralala Dress

- link! -

Originally, this sold out when before it went on sale, but it was back in stock on the site when they 20% was on so I decided to buy it!

 Paired with Liz Lisa blouse.
I wore this dress a few weeks ago actually and it was really cute! It's a bit big on top so I find it much comfier and cuter to wear with a blouse under it!
Also, when I first tried it on, I thought it was super short for some reason but the length seems pretty okay on me after wearing it.

So that's everything I got!
I sure did buy a lot of blue - but that's okay, I don't have a lot of blue anyways so it's nice to have a different colour to choose from. 
I mainly went after things that were on my actual wishlist rather than buying things I thought were cute and I liked there and then in the heat of the moment.
Here's hoping Liz Lisa has a sale soon so I can buy more things from my wish list! ^.^
Thanks for looking!

DreamV Haul~


I bought somethings from DreamV a while ago - ah, okay. I'm really slow at blogging things I ordered this a while ago.
Anyways... I wanted to buy a few things, mainly, I wanted mint shoes... because I don't have a pair and I'm not sure, I felt like I needed a pair for whatever reason.
In the end I found three pairs I liked but one was without straps anywhere and more expensive so I didn't bother with them.
Since I  couldn't decide out of the other two pairs, I decided to get two pairs - one in mint like I wanted originally and one in a beige colour because I don't really have a pair of beige heels (or I do, but they're sparkly glitter covered ones :P hardly versatile,)

First Pair;
- Link! -

I bought them in size LL (?) or 24.5 and I think these fit pretty well actually. The bow is detachable. I took it off the shoes when I first got the package and I spent a good ten minutes trying to put it back on - not worth the effort. If you want to get these shoes and take the bows off - that's fine or just leave them on. I think it's really one or the other basically. I'll leave the bows on mine because I think it makes them more special.
I don't consider the heel height of these to be very high at all either.
They have a good amount of padding in them as well so they're pretty comfy over all as well. If you're new to heels or just want something more comfy or more wearable, I'd really suggest these to you.

Pair Two;

- Link!

I bought these in 24.5 and honestly, I've found them a teeny tiny bit big but not so much that they're the wrong size but still, bit big over all, if you're in between sizes (like... 24.0-24.5 maybe go down? but take that with a grain of salt actually,) These have heaps of padding as well and I really like the cross pattern on them. Really nice looking! The heel is  quite high so not so much for a novice heel wearer but comfy and good shoe. I think I can wear this dressed up for a fancy setting or down really easily.

If anyone is wondering, DreamV shoes always *for me anyways, come with a box which when I got a different pair of shoes, I wasn't expecting because cheap shoes, typically don't come with boxes but these do.

Socks One;
White floral

- Link! -

I just thought these were cute to pair with other shoes. I've seen transparent socks before and I've always like the look so I'm happy to have a pair. These really weren't expensive to me and they came in a few different colours/pattern combos so if you like the look you should be able to find something you like.

Socks Two + Three
Black stripe and black polka dot.

- Link -

Polka dot version.

And stripe!
I have no idea what to pair these with actually... the website shows a few different co-ordinates but I'm not sure I can pull them off in real life somehow. XD 

Bikini One

 - Not available anymore -

 If you would like to know where DreamV hides their bathing suits - they're under clothing - Other (Apparel).
I honestly didn't know what else to buy two shoes and some socks seemed like a pretty pathetic order somehow and I didn't see any clothing I liked at all (at the time,) so I decided to get some swimsuits I had been eyeing. I prefer bandeau style swim tops and normally I wear floral or simple suits but this one was brighter and just different. 
The straps are detachable.
I actually have three pairs of DreamV bathing Suits and this is the only one that does not have a lot of padding not sure why but that's okay.
I go this in a M or a S (which ever was smallest,) and the bottom fits fine, but the top is a bit loose... not like, it'll fall down or anything but not as tight as I would like. Does that make sense?
I think this one is my favorite out of the two I got.

Also, if you're wondering, both bathers came like this - in zip lock bags.
I'm wondering if it's a good idea to store all my bathers like this actually because it keeps the sets together (I'm actually a sets fan when it comes to bathers!) but also keeps them clean but I'm wondering if there might harm the bathers if I do this? Anyone have any advice?

 Bikini Two

- Link! -

I do like this one as well but the top... eh, fits a bit odd... I feel like it needs more padding (or just bigger boobs,) to make it fit better which is strange because there's already so much padding in there. But other than that it's fine. It's really cute. I like that it comes as a set with shorts so you have a cute cover up or if you aren't so comfortable in just a bikini.

Overall, I'm really happy with all the items I got - hopefully, you guys saw something you liked as well. ^.^
Thanks for looking~
