A Historically Inspired Review: Gaia noir { 4-22-2012 }

*Special Note* Now, in the Lolita community, a post like this, showing what goes underneath the cute dresses and skirts might be frowned upon but I find this is totally worth it! So I apologize to anyone that might be offended by pictures of pettis!

Meet Jane. She owns a very awesome shop on ♥ Etsy ♥ called ♥ Gaia Noir ♥. In it, you will find things like corsets, bloomers, shoes and even dreads - all in a historical look. I'm sure that if she has a physical store, it will be like stepping into the past and that is definitely a place I would love to visit.

From her lovely shop, I bought what are called Hotpantaloons/Pettipants/Short Bloomers which are perfect for Lolita, Gothic, and Victoriana styles. For those that have been reading my blog, you will know that I have entered the world of Loli and of course every Loli needs bloomers to give our skirts that gorgeous shape.Two of the best things I love about Jane's store and how she runs it, is that there is constant communication and a lot of it is customizable. 

With the Pettipants in particular, I was worried about fit. She was very kind and very helpful and leading me through the steps for the best fit.AND they're made to order! So I got to choose what fabric I wanted, my exact measurements and if I wanted a bow or not. Of course I went with a bow.

My order arrived pretty quickly and came nicely and securely packaged. When I opened it, it was a very nice surprise. This is my first time owning a petti but I have to say - the fabric is great. Very good quality and it was exactly as I ordered. And another great part, is that it fits perfectly! It has a shirred waist so even if I do happen to put on some weight, the petti will still fit! I also love that it's so versatile so that I can make the petti as poofy as I want or as long as I want. Very great decision, Jane! And the bows are just a cute lil' addition!

All in all, I am VERY happy with my purchase! I love everything about the store and will definitely purchase from again in the future! Jane really is very helpful and has a lot of options and at very good prices. So for anyone that wants beautiful pieces for Alternative or Historically Inspired Eco Fashion - this is the place to shop. Thanks so much Jane!

Until next time~

Sweet Review ♥ The Sunshine Daisy! { 4-16-2012 }

As promised, here is another awesome review of another awesome seller! Please meet PinkAmYcaKeS☆彡, owner of the Etsy shop - ♥ The Sunshine Daisy ♥! She is an awesome seller of all things cute and funky! She has a lot of earrings, rings and very fashionable necklaces. She also has very awesome pink hair!And she's always updating her store with very awesome themes! Her most recent ones are based on shooting stars and nautical things!

I am very happy to say I now own one of her nautical-themed necklaces! It arrived in a very cute box (which she so awesomely decorated with pretty gel pen stars X3 ). Inside, was a very pretty gift wrap with reddish pink themed paper and this awesome sticker tape with very cute designs! I was also very surprised with what was within the paper. My necklace was in a very pretty red sash and accompanied by a very pretty bow! And lots of sparklies with Hello Kitty! It made me so happy!It was all packaged securely and so very cutely, that I was not wanting to open it xD But when I did...

Here is all that came in the package! My new awesome necklace, a special gift of a handmade bow, along with the glitter and two cards with contact info and product care!

The bow is a very cute and colorful polka-dot material accented with little pearl-like strands. It has a very nice light blue band and the backing is not glue directly onto the bow which is great to allow different looks when wearing!

The necklace is called "Red White Stripe North Star Anchors Away Necklace" and is made of striped cutouts of stars and anchors all on baby red plastic chain. It's cute and light and perfect for any outfit! And I just love how she describes it as having "striped star cutouts on the outer edges of the necklace so you always have a star to follow so you never lose your way! ^_^ ". I LOVE IT!

Her service is quick and prompt so your order gets to you VERY quickly! Amy is also very sweet and open to any questions you would have on her products! Plus she always has awesome new ideas coming up! So please be sure to check out her store!

Thanks so much for my awesome stuff, Amy! I will definitely be ordering again!

Until next time~
