You may have answered this before but I was wondering where good places to buy otk socks are? I know taobao is good but I don't know what to search ;-;
On taobao search “lolita袜子” for lots of cute otk socks c:
Also if you keep an eye on lolita sales pages such as the ones on facebook and livejournal, you can find cute offbrand lolita socks for cheap that look adorable with fairy kei ! ♥ I hope that helps >w<
My answer: ryurei-chan
Do people pay attention to whether you're wearing actual brands, such as Milklim and 6%dokidoki? I ask this because I've seen their stuff on Taobao and it would honestly be cheaper for me to get it there than from the actual website with a shopping service and everything... :\
Brand isn’t really important in fairy kei but.. I really wouldn’t buy knockoffs from taobao.
It’s incredibly harsh to buy lots of replicas and damaging to the brand - I have a friend, sweetiecakes and she has lost so much money due to replicas of her tights, and Tabuchi from Spank! actually refuses to ship overseas because she’s worried about replicas being made. It can really damage a brand ! Buying maybe one or two occasionally is probably okay, but I wouldn’t build your wardrobe on them.
Instead, find cute clothes in local shops and thrift stores , as well as DIY ! And you can usually find secondhand brand on lolita and fairy kei sales pages on facebook and livejournal ! It’s easy to build a wardrobe without using big brands like milklim and 6%dokidoki so try to look locally and online before looking at replicas !
Do you know any online shops where I can buy fairy kei clothing?
I have a whoooole list here♥
Hi hun! Do you know any places to get some 2-way brooches, not star shaped but like the tulle bows? I'm hoping to get one that's at least an inch wide, but no more than 3 inches. Since it's only one bow, I'm hoping it is less than ~$8. Shipping in US would be preferable. Thanks so much!
I’m sorry, I don’t know what you mean by tulle bows? If you send in a picture of what you mean, I’ll try my best to look for some ! >w<
hi uvu im going to tokyo next month and i want to know shops i could visit for fairy kei things?
Yes ! You could check out Nile Perch, KOKOkim, Spank! , Candy Stripper and 6% DOKIDOKI ! These shops are all perfect for fairy kei, and they’re all located within tokyo ! You could also check out the Barbie store, the sanrio shop and Paris Kids for some extra cute shopping ♥
On themes, perhaps you can do a guide for mixing fairy kei with other styles? I see that you have had ton of cult party asks, I think some lolita and some gyaru. I think a lot of people (including me!) would love that!
I could try this! I could use polyvore too, so I might do this when I have time, thankyou !
Hi! I am so sorry to ask, as I'm not even sure you can help. But I really want to get into fairy kei, and have been looking through shops and the like to try to train my eye so I can start buying in the future. The only problem is that I'm 22 and working, and I only just NOW discovered fairy kei and I don't know how to make it more professional, or if I missed out on it because of how fun it is, and now that I'm working, I can't have as much fun as I could if I weren't.
You won’t miss out ! You probably won’t be able to wear it to work, but honestly most people won’t be able to - it’s not just your age but that it’s a professional environment. However ! Pastels are coming into style now, and recently I bought a really cute mint dress (this one) that would be perfect for a cute look in a professional setting ! Because pastels are in style, I’m sure you could find cute items that would work for your work ♥
If you need any help finding any, you could come off anon and I’ll be happy to add you on skype and we can go “professional-kawaii” hunting together ^^
And you can go all out fairy kei for conventions and meetups when you don’t have work ! It works out in the end, so don’t be worried! ♥♥
Not a question but I'm super happy that you're starting up again!! I've checked this blog continuously >< it's such a cute wonderful blog! I hope you never quit!
Aah thank you ! I update less than usual but I’m trying to get back into it >w<
I’m happy that you check it regularly !
