Just as a heads up, Bodyline’s website was compromised at some point earlier today (November 12th, 2014).
1. Monitor your credit card for suspicious purchases if you are a past customer. If you see one, call your bank to report it as soon as possible.
2. Monitor the Bodyline FB page for more information.
1. Visit the site.
2. Try to make new orders.
3. Open any emails from them unless in text-only view. Do not open attachments or click any links.
If you want to make a purchase from bodyline during the downtime you can use a SS to purchase from their Rakuten shop (http://www.rakuten.co.jp/bodyline/
) or a reseller like Cosmates (http://www.cosmates.jp/

And don't forget, there is a dress code. Since it's a lolita event, the dresscode is lolita and the accompanying boystyles are also allowed!^^
We hope to see you there! Thank you for reading! And if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask here or on our Facebook page (look for Lolita Kawaii Weekend on Facebook!)
I am not sure if this can apply to the overseas customers, but there is something fancy to know!
So for a bit, Angelic Pretty has closed its store online temporarily for a renewal. As an opening campaign, they are going to give out 500 points (Equal to 500 Yen, so about $5.) for free for those who register asap at the new online store (The AP staff told me to wait until the new online store opens since the member information for the old online store will be erased, and won't get the 500 yen, so register when the store opens.). This means, we can have a 500 yen discount in a way!
Also, there will be a novelty item for the first 150 shoppers who spend over 10,000 yen (approx $100). I am not sure what it is, but lets see!

So I realized recently that USPS removed the ability to add tracking to packages shipped international: it says it in the descriptions of the services still, but does not allow the option to add it. So, I called USPS about it and she verified that yes, in fact, there is no way to track international packages (the medium and large flat rate boxes and express mail have pseudo tracking but she said it’s not really tracking at all, it just says when it has left the country not even if it has been delivered)
So I called Paypal knowing that their buyer protection is only valid if a package has tracking - The PP rep verified my fears. They know about it and yes, USPS is NOT valid for buyer protection! She said the only way to get it is using UPS and FedEx because they have true tracking and to not use USPS to ship international packages!!
IF YOU USE USPS TO SHIP INTERNATIONAL PACKAGES YOU ARE LOSING BUYER PROTECTION - YOU ARE NOT SAFE FROM PP DISPUTES AS A SELLER WHEN USING THEIR SERVICE.
If you want to reblog this on tumblr I have it posted here: http://secretduckie.tumblr.com/post/52240252475/international-shipping-everyone-should-know

for details on our monthly Banner Contest!The General Theme for August is Lolita and Sports
Does the thought of playing sports in your lolita make you shake in your tea party shoes? Don't fret, there are plenty of lawn games like croquet and bocce ball you can enjoy without breaking a sweat (actually, lolitas don't sweat, we glisten). But if you do play American football in your lolita, then more power to you! Either way, this month share your sports-playing lolita adventures!The Aesthetic Theme for August is Simplicity
Lately, many lolitas have been wrapped up in the over-the-top movement. Sweet, classic, gothic; we all seem to be preoccupied with how many bracelets we can wear and how much stuff fits in our multi-colored hair. This month, take a moment to appreciate the elegance and refinement of a simple coordinate, and remember to share your experience with us!We are also introducing a new rule for our banner contests:
Entrants are permitted to submit their work during as many months as they desire. However, if an entrant wins
the contest 2 months in a row, they will not be permitted to enter during the following 3 months. This is to promote variety and awareness of the community's great number of talented artists.
