FAQ: lovelyshoes.net


Hello ladies and gents,

as some of you know, I'm a frequent guest at daily_lolita, and people keep asking about some of my shoes that I got from lovelyshoes.net, about their quality, ordering etc., so I thought that a FAQ would be helpful to have all information together in one post. If there's something you're missing, another question you'd like to have answered or something you think needs to be updated, please let me know!

We interrupt your casual Tuesday for some despicable news!

Hey everyone, how's your blood pressure doing? Good? Well break out the coumadin, it's about to skyrocket.

For some of you who aren't familiar, there is a website called Regretsy, which takes some of the worst and most inexplicable items from Etsy and showcases them in humorous posts usually consisting of 'why would you do that'? However, Regretsy isn't always picking on the little hipster that could; April Winchell, the site owner, often holds events through Etsy as well as her site where people can choose to donate money or sellable crafts with the proceeds going to charities and people in need, from Etsy sellers who have hospital bills to people who've lost their jobs.

PayPal apologizes and explains.

Other Services like PayPal
I have NOT personally tried any of these services myself; most of the sites I buy from allow direct credit card input as opposed to the hassle of logging into PayPal. My info has come from various people on the internet, as well as PayPalSucks reviews of different services.
WePay
Dwolla Transactions under $10 are free!
Google Checkout
Allpay.net RECOMMENDED UK ONLY
Paymate RECOMMENDED AUS AND NZ ONLY
Ipaymu https://ipaymu.com/ You'll need Bank Account from Indonesia to register but you are allowed to do overseas transaction. *thanks snowsparklegems
Popmoney *thanks lotusx

As always though, do your research and plan carefully when selecting any service. It might take some time, but perhaps if more and more sellers and buyers switch to a different service, we can dismantle paypal just a little bit :)

EDIT:

Everything kinda resolved?
So I guess no one's still sure when it's okay to use the donate button, so if you plan on using PayPal to fund charity drives any time soon, either be a non-profit or be doing it for sick cats and not people.
In the meantime, research some alternatives.

Just in time for Christmas! Highlighting an Etsy Shop

Know a sweet lolita who can't find just the right earrings to pair with a Wonder Cookie print? Know a classic lolita looking for just the right ring to set off her whole outfit?

It sounds like the opening to a bad infomercial selling a 20-instrument-in-1 machine, but I really did stumble on a gem on Etsy while I was shopping for my best friend, who is just now getting to Sweet Lolita. I felt like sharing!

Corsets?

I've been thinking about getting a corset lately ( to wear under my clothes ) but I've never bought one before and I don't know what kind I should get at all. I was thinking maybe one of the ones from Bodyline, but are they even any good? Where would you ladies recommend getting them? Nothing too expensive please, I don't even know if I'll like wearing it.

If this has been asked before, I apologize. I looked in the memories but couldn't find anything that answered my question. :P

dress question~ is it lolita?

Hello ^_^
this is my first time posting on egl so forgive me if this is a silly question but...
