~Innocent World Oddment Pack A: Video Unboxing + Photos~ 
29th-Apr-2014 02:55 pm

Hi guys!

I just received my IW Oddment Pack A in the mail, and I thought that the lolitas of egl might be interested in checking it out.


I ordered an IW Oddment Pack A, and I wasn't let down by what I received!

First up, we have my unboxing video.

I was so excited to open it though, that I derped out and put my camera in portrait. Go me!

(Apologies for being such a dweeb in my video, I was ridiculously excited!)

So, after filming my unboxing video I set to work on properly opening and photographing my new pieces. Funnily enough, I realised that all of my blouses were short sleeved when I opened them! ahah

Also, finding stock listings turned out to be much easier than I thought it would be. (I got lucky and everything still had tags attached.)

In total, I received 17 items! Here they all are, complete with product names and a listing of any damage I found:

From Left to right:

-Petit Ribbon Blouse in White, Size L, no damage spotted
-Round Collar Ribbon Pullover, no damage spotted
-Round Collar Ribbon Short-Sleeved Blouse in Beige, Size S, no damage spotted
-Rose Cotton Lace Blouse Beige x Brown, Size L, no damage spotted
-Heart Decollete Blouse in Beige, Size M, no damage spotted
-Tuck Frill Short-Sleeved Blouse in Brown, Size S, no damage spotted

-Cecilia JSK in White, slight run on chest section (total of 1cm in length)

This is super adorable! I just wish that it was longer in the bodice, since the waist of the dress sits a little high on me.

-Stripe Round Collar Flare OP in Gray, size L, seam coming apart for 3cm beneath left sleeve

My second favourite piece from the pack! Unfortunately, I'm stumped as to how I can coordinate it with my wardrobe.

-Natalia OP in Navy, no damage spotted

A slightly odd item, but it's actually rather flattering when worn. I think it'll be cute for otome wear.

-Square Yoke Doll OP in Navy, no damage spotted

Another interesting piece. It's designed to be a loose fit, but the waist ties at the back help give it a bit of structure. An extra centimeter in the sleeves would have been nice though.

-Standing Collar Lacy OP, no damage spotted

A very OTT piece. The lower lace sleeve section is removable (it's just attached with buttons and elastic.) If I end up keeping this piece I think I might unpick the lace around the hem of the dress and the sleeves.

-Bouquet Stripe JSK in Wine, Size M, no damage spotted

I thought this would be nice for casual wear but unfortunately the bodice of the dress looks odd one me. It's since been sold.

-Checkered Lace Up JSK in Brown, not damage spotted

My favourite piece in the pack! If it wasn't for the IW tag, I would have thought that this was an Amavel item (they're an otome brand.) The weather is cooling down over here so I can picture myself wearing this with oxfords, thigh highs, and a beret.

-Margit Pants in Grey, no damage spotted

These are super cute but I can't see myself wearing them. The lace IW used is amazing though.

-Cross Lace Cameo Head Bow in Brown, no damage spotted
-Knee High Socks with Wide Lace, faint yellow marks around ankle
-Merry-Go-Round bag in Bordeaux, slight glue mark

The head bow matches a fair bit in my wardrobe (hurruh) but the bag isn't quite the right colour for anything I own, it's such a shame though because it is very cute. As for the socks, I look a little odd in anything knee high so they'll have to go :/

All in all, I'm very impressed with my pack. Kudos to IW as well, since they gave me pretty cohesive items! I think that a lot of the pieces will be staying, mainly because they fit with the classic part of my wardrobe rather well :)

very cute haul :3
so many blouses!!

Thank you!
Yes, so many blouses. I was really surprised and excited about that, partly because I was after a few more and secondly because I only received 2 in my last Oddment Pack.

so nice!! I wish I had the money ;n;
If you're interested in selling the margit pants, by the way, I would be very interested~ They're adorable!
29th-Apr-2014 11:56 am (UTC)
Yeah, they are kind of pricey :/

I am actually selling them! I've got someone in my local community interested though. After that I'll be offering them to my National community (Australia) before I go international.

Really great haul.
I adore all of your blouses, especially the brown one!
30th-Apr-2014 02:19 am (UTC)
Thank you!
I think I'll be getting a lot of use out of that brown one.

This lucky pack is lovely!
I love all the blouses. You're right about Innocent World having really nice blouses, I like their designs and the large variety to choose from.

The only time I ordered a lucky pack from IW in hopes of getting some nice blouses was last summer. Unfortunately all of them and the OP were too big on me and they've been sitting in my closet since then :(
Two of them were the Brown Tuck Frill Short-Sleeved one and the Heart Decollete (btw, I think it's supposed to have ties which you cross tie on the chest behind the neck, I uploaded a picture below, sorry for the poor quality). I found the ties on it quite uncomfortable though.

Thank you for sharing! Seeing all the lovely things you got made me want to order a lucky pack again next time ^^

Oh man, their blouses are the best. And you're right about the variety, they do really simple blouses right up to really OTT ones!

Every time I get an IW Lucky Pack I hope for blouses. I wasn't so lucky with my last Oddment pack (I only received 2 from memory.) You must be rather petite for IW blouses to be big on you!

The Heart Decollette blouses did have the neck ties, they're just sneakily hidden inside.

all of these pieces are so gorgeous! I see a lot of IW Oddment packs where people just get TONS of those casual cutsew dresses, but yours has an absolutely awesome mix of things in it!
30th-Apr-2014 03:20 am (UTC)
Really? I've never gotten any cutsew dresses before!
And yes, there was a nice variety in my pack :3
29th-Apr-2014 06:11 pm (UTC)
woah, this batch of oddment lucky bags was really good, I guess! love your LP, especially the blouses :)
30th-Apr-2014 03:21 am (UTC)
Yes, so far they've all looked pretty good! Super happy about those blouses as well.
29th-Apr-2014 06:26 pm (UTC)
Ohhh, this is a seriously lucky pack! I absolutely adore that sailor style jsk!!
30th-Apr-2014 03:23 am (UTC)
That JSK was one of the bigger surprises in my pack! I've never tried sailor lolita before, but I guess I'll have to give it a shot :)
30th-Apr-2014 02:01 am (UTC)
Thank you for posting! I enjoyed your video!
30th-Apr-2014 03:23 am (UTC)
That's alright!
Sorry for being so awkward n my video ahah

oh wow i love this! i never bought anything from IW before but seeing this post on the LP has changed my mind completely! now i want a lucky pack XD ! these are great! thanks for the post!

IW lucky packs are fantastic! My first ever lolita purchase was actually an IW lp.
1st-May-2014 03:59 pm (UTC)
What a great pack! The blouses are really beautiful.
I'm going to throw out my interest in the Stripe Round Collar Flare OP if it ends up not working for you but I'm sure it will it's a beautiful dress!

If you ever consider selling the cecilia jsk please let me know, such an awesome lucky pack, wish I'd ordered one!!
