[Haul] Buyee Order #1

Hi! Hi!

I made my first ever Buyee order not too long ago and I've been meaning to do this post for about a week.
Buyee is like a sister company to tenso and the best was I can describe Buyee is it's like ebay or an auction site.
I hadn't ever really looked at Buyee too much prior to this order but Emi notified me that there was a listing for a novelty I was originally interested in.

 The item I really wanted was these mouton boots from Liz Lisa. These were a novelty in store so I couldn't get my hands on these first hand but I really liked them. These are something I would happily pay for myself if they were released online but unfortunately, they weren't.







The boots are really cute and they're really well made. For some reason, I wasn't expecting them to arrive in a box but I'm glad it did. It's a shame it Winter in Australia so I can't wear these for a while.


The second item I purchased was this skirt. It's secondhand but for the price and the condition - I'm really okay with purchasing this particular item second hand.
This skirt is one of the first items I saw from Liz Lisa and I've always really loved even over the years.
I'm not personally a big fan of the term 'dream item' just because I fee like it's means people will charge more for an item knowing it could be a 'dream piece' for someone but this skirt was always one I really wished I could own - so I guess it was a bit of a 'dream' item for me.
 The fabric on this skirt is so soft as well.
The buttons are in good condition - the seller was kind enough to include the spare button as well.

The one thing I dislike about this skirt is... I think it's on the 'too short' side for me so I'm not sure how often I would wear it but I'm glad I have it regardless.


 I paired the skirt with a Tralala denim blouse and Liz Lisa boots and bag.


 Worn with Penderie Tralala blouse and Liz Lisa shoes and bag.
The skirt seems really versatile and can be worn with a few different items in my closet already.

This was a complete impulse purchase and I wasn't super excited for it. It was reasonable priced on Buyee after bidding on it I kind of hoped someone would eventually outbid me but no one did. Oh well, I should think more carefully about what I purchase. 
The bag is very well made (no loose threads, feels heavy for it's size etc,) and it feels sturdy - however, I'm sure if you're not cautious with it the bag will show damage and wear and tear easily because of the material used to make the bag. 

Regardless, the bag arrived in excellent condition and it's clearly unused as you can see the original plastic on it. Mine also had the tissue paper in the bag as well to help it maintain it's shape.


The zip is decorated with a big pearl - which suits the theme of the bag well.
The bag is incredibly small in shape. It's really like a clutch - you can only fit small belongings in the bag. I actually have no idea where or when I would possibly use this bag because I can't think of a situation where it's appropriate to wear a bag shaped like Cinderella's carriage. (Maybe DisneyLand?)
It also has a small zip pocket in the bag as well.
It comes with a heavy gold chain as well - I'm not a big fan of chains but I do think it suits the bag.
I purchased this bag for 1600 YEN (plus fees, shipping etc.) and I'm not sure it's worth much more than than simply because even though it's well made - I doubt many people would have much use for this to justify a higher price.

That's all the I purchased from Buyee. I actually check buyee often, but I haven't made a second purchase at this point in time but there's some great stuff on there. If you're familiar with tenso and second hand sites, like ebay buyee is really easy to get a hang of.

Thank you for reading!

    1. It's really soft too! Yeah, I don't mind cause I keep the tags on mine until I wear the clothes so it feels like I have something new to wear XD. Oh, maybe you can check out second hand sales or the outlet for Summer stuff tho? I'm sure there's some nice stuff available somewhere.

    1. Yeah, so far the bag is the only one for a while so it's not too bad IMO. Buyee is great but I tend to stay away from used or items that are too old. I really prefer to buy first hand if I can or new with tags just because I'm more particular about that. But I think Buyee is worth a look at.

  6. Love everything you got! I'm surprised by the size of the cinderella bag novelty, I thought it'd be a bit bigger. Those mouton boots are hella cute! I may search for them because I need new warm boots for those extra dry and cold days in Canada, plus they're super cute!
