One last baby-ordering question!!

When you send a paypal payment to BABY, is there anything your suppose to include with it such as a name of the product or something? Or anything you are suppose to email them about just so they know YOU sent the payment? Or do they just know? Just curious, and somewhat paranoid about sending that much money xD

New Line at Target

Just a quick heads up... As y'all may know, Target has started inviting independent fashion designers to do small runs of exclusive lines for Target stores.

The latest designer is Alice Temperley, and she has some neat blouses and a pair of overalls that I think could be part of an EGA or boystyle outfit. If you're interested I would go to your nearest Target soon, though, as these lines tend to go fast because fans of the designers apparently stake out the stores. o_O

At our Target, there was only a single M left in the black blouse, which I got :) and not much left in the way of sizes in the other things. I personally found the cotton on the blouse a little thin, and the sizing small (I usually wear a S in shirts and 6-8 in pants and I'm probably an 11 in this size) but for Lolis on a budget, I think they're good finds. :)

Black, long-sleeved pretty ruffled blouse, $24.99 (Kuro-friendly too? Will need a tank under if you plan on wearing alone without a JSK or anything, as the lace is see through on two thin lines down the front)

Black styled overalls, $39.99 (Boystyle friendly?)

Beautiful ruffled grey button blouse, high collar, $29.99

Question about Kera Shop Angel

Hi EGL, just a few quick-ish questions.

So, basically, i'm going to Japan next year and intend to do a LOT of loli shopping. I was just wondering... what are people's opinions of Kera Shop Angel in Marui Young, Tokyo? The Tokyo Gothic & Lolita Shopping Guide states that it carries a lot of brands such as Victorian Maiden, Mary Magdalene etc. but judging by the pictures on Marui's website, it's pretty small. So, here's what i'd like to know:

-What brands does it mostly stock?
-Does it carry a lot of VM and MM (They are two of my favourite brands)?
-Is it as small as it looks in the pictures? Or are they just old pictures?
-Is it worth going to individual brand shops for VM and MM? (and, if you would be so kind, where can I do this?)
-Any other opinions of Kera Shop Angel and Marui Young in general

Thanks for your time ^o^

Thank you everyone. <3

If any of you remember, I posted asking for help and suggestions for my unfortunately made replica of a Mary Magdalene dress and I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who commented. I went back to the seller and complained and she's agreed to make another one for me, hopefully better this time. It'll be a bit more trouble than just getting something else but I hope it'll be worth it. Thank you all. :) <33333

I hope this post is appropriate, I thought it's the best way to say thanks to everyone.

Hot Topic shoe clearance

Hot Topic's having a sale on their shoes section. There's a bunch of shoes, including Mary Jane style shoes, that can be had for $7.99 and below. Most of the stuff is probably more useful for punk lolita, but here are a few that I think are more versatile.

Ankle Strap Mid Wedges (black) $7.99
Tie Flats (pink) $7.99
Saints and Sailors T-Strap Flats (black) $7.99
Saints and Sailors Patent Wedge (black) $7.99

All Clearance Shoes

(no subject)

I'm checking ebay for cheap lolita blouses, and here's some possible one's I've found. Are any of these actually worth buying? >_> It's possible that none of them could work with a lolita outfit, but they were the best I could find.
