As with past orders, I made my purchase through TaobaoRing. They have now re-branded as 42Agent. I like this shopping service because it is easy to use, the staff understand English well and the commission fee is low. Often times. 42Agent even lowers their low fee for special events, nice!
Here are the lolita items that I was able to add to my wardrobe!
Sweet Lolita Winter Gloves, $9
These winter gloves are beautiful. I am in love with the entire design! The contrast of the dark pink suede with the light pink velvet looks lovely. It also allows for more coordination opportunities. All of the material, from the suede to the velvet and lace, is very soft. I really like how the base of the gloves look like a wrist cuff. To add some additional elegance to these accessories, the designers added a chain of glass pearls. With the small heart-shaped gem, these gloves do make a statement!
The stitching used to create these gloves is flawless! There isn't a thread out of place. All of the decorative elements are very secure. Thankfully, you do not need to worry about losing any pieces.
The details of these gloves are precious! Between the folded ribbons to the intricate lace, the design is fantastic. I did notice that the heart gems are two different color pinks, but it is barely noticeable.
I discovered that the right-hand glove has embroidery! There are two heart details, one on the thumb and one on the index finger. I believe this may mean that the gloves have touchscreen capability!
As beautiful as these gloves are, I would not recommend them if you have average size or wider hands. Even with my smaller hands, it was a struggle to get the gloves on the first time. Once on, the gloves are warm enough for a mild winter day in New England. I look forward to wearing them!
5 / 5
Perfect! These gloves are absolutely lovely! The design is elegant, and they were a great by at $9. These gloves are very comfortable. I would not recommend these gloves if you have wider hands.
Plush Bear Ears, $11
This is the second item that I purchased from the Taobao shop Red Maria. I was very pleased to have found a cute new bear accessory! With my new pink Lockshop wig on the way, I needed to purchase some hair accessories that were would stand out a bit better. This hair item was a great find.
The band is wide, which is fantastic! I like to have a wide headband to ensure that the item isn't going to topple. The plush material is very soft. The stitching is amazing - I cannot even see how they put this accessory together. The ears on the piece are lovely and just the right size! The velvet ribbons are extremely sturdy and very sweet. The pretty white lace on the bows adds to the sweetness. I enjoy that there is a golden comb at the base of the hair accessory. This adds some additional stability.
My only complain with this item, is the blue pen marks. These must be where the person who made the item cut out the pink plush inner ear. Thankfully, these marks aren't noticeable when the headband is worn. For the price of the item though, this mistake is one that can be easily overlooked.
4 / 5
I am very glad that I purchased this piece. The headband is sturdy and the plus material that was used is very soft. The two ribbons are flawless and very secure. I absolutely love the design of this cute hair accessory! I have taken off half of a point due to the easily avoidable pen mark mistake.
Sheer Lolita Gloves, $5
I have wanted a pair a sheer lolita gloves for quite some time. Once I bought my Crystal Guardians: Fairy Princess Haenuli dress, I had an excuse to get them. Now that the gloves are here, I believe that they would be a great addition to my Welcome to my Dollhouse jumperskirt that is on the way, too.
The material isn't soft, but the gloves are far from scratchy. I believe that the material will hold up well and this pair will not need to be replaced any time soon. The satin bows on the gloves are a lovely touch. The gloves are well constructed, and the bows are secure. I cannot wait to wear these!
The fingers are a bit too long, and I have long fingers! This is rather strange that the base of the gloves is average or small, yet the fingers are rather exaggerated. You can see the extra material in the tips. It just seems a bit odd. Plan to see if I can make adjustments to the tips to remove the extra fabric.
