Review: Vierge Vampur

Vierge Vampur is a japanese indie brand that took the tumblr lolitas by storm with their really cool and simple designs! I decided to place an order with them.

Communication: Vierge Vampur does accept overseas orders through emails. Akiko Bundai does not speak English but did respond in relatively good english. I would recommend either translating your inquiries or speaking in simple sentences. Every time I emailed the company I received an email the day after
4/5

Shipping Time: This might be the biggest 'con' of the whole process. It took more or less 3 months to receive my dress, which is a big disappointing. I was also not told ahead of time how long it would take or date to expect my product. I had to inquire about my product and the time to receive it, and when the deadline pass, I again had to inquire about my item and found out the deadline was pushed further back. For this mistake I did receive a gift however which is very nice thought.
2/5
.
Packaging: No complaints here. It was shipped in an EMS envelope. Everything was wrapped in clear plastic packaging. I received a one page catalog and as well some hair ties for the delay.I also noticed my item had been declared for only 30$ which is something else that would have been alarming should I have received any problems but luckily I didn't. Shipping cost 2,800 yen via EMS
4/5

Materials: All the materials used looks absolutely stunning! Most of my items are made of velvet and seem nice and thick
5/5

Workmanship:
OP. Everything like bows and utensils on the cuff look very secured. It's lined inside and doesn't seem to be any loose thread. Applique looks like it wont peel off either but I'm a little worried about it
5/5
Bonnet: Everything looks secure and done. The bow in the back is especially cute and well made. However the ties and when the bonnet is put on your head doesn't feel as secure as it could be. I feel it might need to be adjusted many times when I put it on. I would have hope for a comb or something on the bonnet.
4.5/5
Timeline: Ordering an item can take up to 3 months
March 29th 2013 Ordered Meal Time OP & Bonnet
March 30th 2013 Request for payement from Vierge Vampur
April 27th 2013 Inquire about the time I will receive my order
April 28th 2013 I am told middle of June
June 20th 2013 I inquire if my order is shipped
June 22th 2013 I am told the end of June
July 11th 2013 Items are shipped and receive apology email from designer
July 16th 2013 Receive my item and gift for the delay

Overall I am super happy with my product but disappointed by the time it took to receive it and the lack of communication. However the item was well worth the wait and can't wait for an opportunity to wear them!
