[Haul] Lizmelo

Hi! Hi!

Another late post.

Lizmelo is collaboration between Liz Lisa and My Melody (Sanrio) the label normally makes a small collection every season of cute room wear, clothing and accessories that is sold at Shimamura exclusively.

Lizmelo is a new addition to Tokyo Kawaii Life. They released a small capsule collection of room wear online.

If you've read other hauls and posts from me before, you know that I really love room wear and My Melody so I really wanted to purchase some things from the collection.

BIG Silhouette T-shirt in Pink
- BIGシルエットTシャツ 

I think this was really over priced at full price but I'm still really glad purchased it. It's a really over sized t-shirt with My Melody printed on the front.

 The t-shirt has a slight trapeze cut which gives it the extra fabric and shape.

I really like the extra detail on the back that gives that drape. It gives a little extra something and keeps it from being like any other t-shirt.

The fabric on this top is also really nice - it's really stretchy and thick so it's quite nice quality.

Note that the tag is different from Liz Lisa tags. I haven't seen the shimamura personally but I'm under the impression that these labels are different.

Mokuurake shorts in Grey
I was skeptical over the quality over these items because they're 'Summer' items I was worried they would be to thin or flimsy but I'm really glad that I was worrying over nothing. 

 The jumper has 3/4 sleeves and I really like the length - I normally push my sleeves up while I'm doing things like cooking or cleaning or playing games so it's comfy to have them be that length already.

I really like the rope-like ties on the set as well, it's a little bit nautical looking which is cute since this is a Summer set. 

 The shorts surprised me - there was no model wearing these online so I was a bit worried they might be too short but they're actually longer than I thought they would be - I don't mind this because I like being able to move around and sit however I like when I'm at home so the fact that they're longer is great. 
They also look nice with the longer cut top so you can still see you're wearing shorts underneath.

The whole outfit is super comfortable and easy to wear and it's really cute as well. I like that they're plain because all my room wear is actually patterned so it's nice to have something that's plain - plus I don't think it's room 'sleep wear' like, so you can wear them to answer the door or if you have a friend over and not look like you haven't gotten changed since you were asleep.

The only thing I'm not crazy over is the hoodie - most room wear items come with them and I'm not sure the point of hoodies when you're inside. 

I was really hoping this line would be a replacement for the Coucher a Chambre line Liz Lisa had ages ago and would make cute room accessories like mugs, bedding, and pillows but it doesn't seem that it is unfortunately.
Forever wishing Coucher a Chambre to return. 

Let me know if you bought anything from this line and you're thoughts on it if you did.

Thank you for reading!

[Haul] Liz Lisa x My Melody 6th Collab

 Hi! Hi!

Oh my gosh, this post is so ridiculously overdue I really apologize.

This collab was released in two volumes but I'll post both volumes today.
If you partook in buying this dress online you might have seen or heard that volume 1 was released a week earlier then advertised and I decided to purchase it with a bunch of other Liz Lisa fans because it was up so it must be for sale.
Later on, it turned out it was a mistake on Tokyo Kawaii Life's end but they still sold the dresses to everyone who bought it earlier.

Volume 1

I actually purchased 3 of these dresses, 2 in white and 1 in pink because at the time it was released Emi was on a plane heading to Japan for her holiday with her family, so I bought one pink and one white in case she missed out in store since the day of the release in store we were going to the Kyoto store and we weren't sure we would miss it or not since neither of us had any experience with the store releases and how long it would be available for.
Anyways, Emi bought her own and I managed to sell the extra white to a friend.
(Also, thanks to Catherine for helping me with all my decision making,)
I ended up with both a white and a pink in the end and I was really convinced I was going to sell the pink (I originally only liked the white,) however, I really liked the pink when I saw it - a lot more than I thought I ever would.

 When it was released online by mistake it wasn't called the My Melody Collab dress or have the correct cover photo on the listing - if I didn't look twice I would have missed it.

 I really feel very girlie and princess-y in this dress overall. It fits well too which is really nice as well. The print is so nice - roses, sweets and My Melody - What could be more perfect about this dress?

Liz Lisa My Melody Collab Dress in Pink

 I super loves the pink one more than I thought I would. Actually I expected to hate it so that I liked it even a little bit was a surprise and I really can't decide which one I like more.

I bought one of these a while ago, with the second or third collab I think but I haven't bought one since. I decided to buy this one because I really love this collab lol.

Volume 2

The collab this time had a lot more items for sale than they normally do and they decided to do two volumes. I'm not sure if it's because the collab is popular or because it's the 40th anniversary.

Liz Lisa My Melody Collab Jumper Skirt in 'White'

I bought both the blouse and the jumper skirt but I think I bought the jumper skirt because everyone else seemed too really liked it. I've never bought a jumper skirt before so I really regretted buying this straight after buying it because... when will I wear it?

I really like the blouse however. I do like the half sleeve and I love the fabric on the sleeves on this blouse -I have a dress with a similar fabric and I really like it.

 The blouse doesn't feel like the best quality so I'll have to be careful with it when wearing this and washing it.

I really love the patterns on this skirt so much.

Liz Lisa My Melody Collab Ribbon Dress in Pink

 This was originally the only thing I was going to get from the collab however I bought a lot more. I'm not completely happy with this dress - I just don't really like these bows too much and I don't think that they do anything for me personally.
I do think the dress is really cute but I'm debating selling it or seeing if I'll wear it first before selling it.

I'm interested in selling this for what I paid for it, please contact me directly if you're interested in it.

Liz Lisa My Melody Collab Pillow
I actually bought this months after the release when it was on sale (I think 50% off?) XD. It was too cute to pass up and as I said earlier, I love the print too much to pass on it.
I currently have this on my bed and I'm still really happy when I look at it.

Okay, so that was what I got with this collab - it was a lot more than I originally intended on buying but I'm quite happy with everything I got in the end.
I ended up liked the volume 1 dress a lot more than I thought I would but I also really like the jumper skirt and I'm glad I purchased it in the end.

I also bought from the 40th anniversary and the Lizmelo releases as well so I'll post that once I get the chance.

Again, sorry it took me so long to release this post. ^.^

Let me know, which Liz Lisa My Melody Collab has been your favorite so far?
