Hiya all :D Thankyou very much for the advice and info about the socks staying up question I had the other day ^^ Much appreciated!
Today I have a problem :(
I had bought http://www.annahousefashion.com/detail.asp?catid=77332&subcatid=0&pdtid=633084&private=
these shoes from Anna House in Black (with the white middle area) in size 41. I had measured my foot on a piece of paper, and its 26cm. I take a US9 Womens shoe. So I thought it'd be ok. When they arrived a few days ago, they seem too big and wide. I have a narrow foot, so that may be the problem. I've tried on offbrand OTK socks with 2 inner soles to get them to fit snugger cause my feet were slipping around too much. Even after that, my heel still feels very uneasy with them on. I am scared I'll fall over as I can feel the heels slipping around as I walk, almost went sideways (as in ankle bending sideways) on my right ankle :S
I like my feet to be in the shoe and not moving around. I can move my heel back into the shoe, and as soon as I start walking in them, my foot slides down forward into the shoe and I can still stick a whole finger in the back of my heel between that and the back of the shoe. The gap worries me a fair bit :S But even if I get a 1/2 size down again, I'm worried its just gonna be as wide and I'll need the inner soles still so I don't move around so much. I usually wear inner soles with all shoes, cause it makes the shoe feel more comfy.
I'm so used to skate shoes, but I can wear boot heals fine. Even dress shoes are fine too. I have another pair of normal Lynx Mary Janes, but they don't look very special =/ They're my backup pair I spose xD
I was thinking maybe bodyline would have some shoes that are for narrow feet or some with better strap support? Or maybe AH shoes just arn't the best fits? A little worried as I need some black ones quick before an event coming up in under 2 weeks (Sat after next).
In particular ladies, I'd love to know if anyone has worn photos of skirt 013-1300. The hearts and flowers design comes in two different colour ways and I'm so taken by the print, but just can't decide! I would love a closer picture of the pattern,or just a worn picture in some better form of lighting. Sadly the google machine could not help with my request, but it's always so tough with AH because they don't name their prints like other brands.
Anyone who can help would be awesome! Thanks!
I am just beginning to get into the Lolita fashion... More specifically Gothic Lolita... However, I can't seem to find any reliable stores. :( These are the ones I have tried
annahousefashion.com (It seems reliable... but only accepts HKD and well I'm not sure how to get those since I have only used USD)
milanoo.com (Had a lot of really cute stuff that seems relitivly cheap and good quality... But I had found out that it isnt a reliable site...Such a bummer)
Candyviolet.com (But it took me to a different website when I had clicked on "Shopping"...this made me wary of it)
Bodyline.co.jp (seems to be the only reliable site... but it doesn't really have a lot of clothing that interest me and if it does its sold out!)
metamorphosis.gr.jp (seems very reliable...but doesn't have a big selection)
So as you can see I have tried a lot of different websites... This is REALLY stressful trying to find a reliable site of good quality, is relitively inexpensive/decently priced. :( Because trying to get my grandad to be 200 dollars for one dress will lead to a lot of nagging (would use another word... but profanity isn't allowed) As you can tell I'm young (14) so can anyone help me? :( I also have no idea how to tell weather a website is reliable other than typing in the website name and then trying to find reviews on it... So if you can, please tell me how to tell the difference between a reliable website and a ripoff.
I would make my own... but I have NO idea how to sew and I wouldn't even have the slightest idea of where to start or how to make a dress that looks good. I can learn how to sew from my granny but then I would have to figure out how to make a good dress... If anyone you know how to make a good dress then that would be greatly appreciated.
Also, Sorry for any typos... I'm pretty tired and stressed out plus livejournal is messing up on me for some reason (the box I have to type in keeps dissapearing or flashing or some crazy thing)
Hey does anyone know what some ideas are for my hair? Its cut into a bob so its long on the right, and short in the back and on the left. So there really isn't much I can do.
Anna House Review!
I got several basics (2 blouses, bloomers, socks, and a petti), a pair of shoes, and an OP from Anna House. I got my shipment today, which is always exciting. ( As it seems customary from them, my box was marked down in value so I wasn't hit with any customs fee.Collapse )
Feel free to ask any other questions~
Edit: Contacted them. :)
I was wondering whether this has happened to anyone else or not.
I ordered a blouse,skirt and bow from anna house. A few days after that I added a dress to my order,but canceled it due to a lack of 3$ =/ I never paid for it,but when I got home I see a dress sitting on my bed. o_o
So basically I got 104$ free. lol.
I don't know if I should contact them or not. Has anyone ever had this happen to them?
I have been trying to contact Anna House for the past 3 weeks with no response. I've written multiple times but can't seem to get an answer so I thought I would ask here. I've checked previous AH posts, but haven't seen one answering my specific question.
I was wondering, is there set price for how much AH will charge to resize a skirt waist
? This post
shows a reply saying that resizing can cost between $30-100 HKD. But has anyone ever asked for just the waist on the skirt resized, and if so how much did they charge? Maybe that also depends on which skirt it is? I have no idea.
Any answers would be greatly appreciated. Also, if this question or one similar has been posted before please let me know and I will delete this post. Thanks so much!
Oh, I know you're sick of these by now o 3o
but my mom just agreed to buy some AH for me for Christmas, so >___>;;
And yes, I did scour the community through ljseek :]
First: How do their shoes run, size wise? Are they true to size or should I order up? according to their chart, I'd be a size 36, but that size is sold out in the shoes I want...would I be comfortable in a 37?
Second: Do they do custom colours? I want this
skirt in completely white, would they be able to do that?
I did email them about that, but I wanted to ask you all if you had ever gotten a custom colour from them.
Thanks so much, guys ;D
