I've been shopping with KonKon sales since last summer, and until now I was more or less satisfied with their service. But I did my last purchase early December, and since then the communication is really not working with their assistance. They only reply my emails when I ask for bidding on another item, otherwise they don't answer the questions about how many of my previously bought items arrived to them, and when they are going to ship it, or how much money remained from my previously overbidded auctions.
Their LJ page says that they are moving to a bigger place so they can expand the business, but still, I have less an less confidence in their trustworthiness.
Does anyone else using their auction service on buying lolita items? What is your personal experience with KonKon Sales?
So my friend and I were walking outside in full sweet yesterday and a lady stopped us. She was very nice and totally in love with what we were wearing so we explained to her what it was and how she could look it up. That got me wondering...
How many of you found this community or got into lolita because you stopped someone and asked them about what they were wearing?
I haven't started getting any lolita clothing yet but I'm trying to start off with replicas. I know theres a fruits parlour replica made by Bodyline, but i wanna know if theres any more Replicas based off Angelic Pretty prints? and by who?
So, I was flipping through old issues of GLB (vol. 1, 3, 8) and looking back with teary eyes at the good old (okay, maybe not all of it...there were race monsters in early GLBs) days of gothic lolita back in the early 2000s. Plenty of brands have shifted styles, evolved, or simply disappeared since then. Many brands didn't ship overseas back then and shopping services were hard to find or charged high fees. It's changed a lot since, but a lot of the clothing in early GLBs was what got me into lolita in the first place. So I was just wondering:
What "vintage" or older lolita pieces do you own? Specifically, which early brand pieces (say, before 2005~2006?) do you own? I'm kind of curious to see how many items and which brands that were previously impossible or difficult to get are now in the possession of happy overseas owners.
Okay, so 2005 isn't necessarily old; lolita clothes have changed quite a bit since then though.
