I've sold quite a lot of 2nd hand stuff recently, so I got myself some new (means... 2nd hand from mbok, lol) stuff from Japan. I've used Treasure Japan as shopping service this time - it's easier then all the shopping services I dealt with before, I'm super happy with the whole process! Definately gonna use their service again. =)
So here's what I got ♥
LOVED this ever since I've seen it on EGG magazine years ago, I cried happy tears when I finally held it in my hands! :'D The colors are so strong, and the print is amazingly well done - I could just stare at the top for half a day instead of actually wearing it. ~lol Gonna pair it with sexy hotpants, lace up platforms, heavy bracelets and a cowboy hat. And gawd, I need a REALLY dark tan... *adding "tanning" to my to-do-list* =P
d.i.a button up jacket
Well, not so reasonable to buy this kinda jacket at this time of the year, right? xD" But it was such a cheap deal that I just couldn't resist. AND temperatures are so chilly in Germany atm that I already got to wear the jacket twice! WIN! xD It's a thinner kind of cloth, so it's more suited for spring / autumn weather. However, it's really sexy when worn, though it comes a tiny tad short on me.
d.i.a sailor dress
YESSSSSS I GOT IT! Finally!
Another item that was on my wishlist for really long time - the infamous d.i.a sailor dress in navy blue!!
It actually turned out to be a romper kind of garment, having safety shorts sewed in - which I obviously find AWESOME! *__* (nothing better then sewed in shorts... seriously.:'D)
My favorite part is the sailor collar, obviously ♥
d.i.a neon neckholder top
I actually wanted to purchase lot's of neon colored pieces, but I ended up with mostly dark / black stuff. This is one of the rare neon pieces. lol
I casually stumbled upon this top while browsing mbok, and it was love at 1st sight. :'D
d.i.a lace up vest
Looks quite unspectacular like this, but OMG - it's so sexy when worn! It has a good amount of stretch and a lacing in the back, so it's very snug on the body ♥
Super lucky that I got this item ♥
A really cheap find! I found it looks very similiar to some d.i.a pieces, so I had to include it to my order list. :'D Unfortunately it's a bit too big on me... I hope to find a way to fix this problem, because it's a really gorgeous and comfy piece to wear! Q__Q
I've been lusting over this for REALLY LONG, but I always hesitated to buy from their jp webstore due to handling+shipping+custom fee's... I was so happy to find it within Europe, so I immediately took the chance! :'D
It's super good quality, the fabric is simply awesome - feels a little like a softshell material, but much softer! The print is very fine and detailed, and the Zebra lining simply kicks asses. :'D
And to express my love for AV Gal...
...I got myself this sexy Monokini!! Now I just need... 1. a toned body 2. a really dark tan 3. ca. 3l of baby oil lol Far to go... xD"
That's all I've been shopping recently - quite a lot, now I better take a loooong break from spending money. xD" (...as if I could really do that... Q__Q)
Let me end this post with some outfit photo, since I couldn't resist wearing my new stuff right away. ♥
Set up: Black Diamond x Crazy Tribe
Choker: Handmade by an lovely US Gal (sorry dear, I forgot your nick... I remember your looks and website design perfect, but I can't seem to find your name anywhere! If you see this, shoot me a message and I'll fill in your name! =D)
I also uploaded it to Instagram, and I got a comment by B-Dia! So happy~ :'D
And here's a selfie =)
With the lovely sailor dress ♥
I swear I'm at least 5 shades more tan then this, I should really ditch the filters. lol
And I need new extensions... let's see how long I can hold this desire back. lol
Wishing you all a lovely time! =D
xoxo, Chira ♥
P.S.: Having GIANT problems with blogspot formatting again, WTF. ~__~ Sorry, the entry looks like a mess - and I can't seem to find a way to fix it. Q_Q
Before I make my massive shopping haul post, I'd like to give short summary about the happenings of the last weeks - just to assure you that I'm not only sitting in front of the PC, chasing after clothes on mbok. lol
I got my copy of the final issue of the EGG magazine!
They really made an awesome last issue! There's a special about egg models of the past years, and they also printed a timeline of all EGG covers! So interesting, I felt like taken back in time. Q__Q Nostalgia strikes!
Yun looks brilliant in all of her shootings, especially in the Bikini special of this issue! I'm gonna miss her funny snapshots with the other models. =/
I'm not gonna make this another post about magazines dying out, because I'm pretty sure we can also make it without printed media. Time to be a little more creative ourselves, I think of it as a challenge! =D
Recently my hair was showing big damage on the tips again, I guess it's because I went tanning quite a lot recently. =/ So it was time to pull out my secret weapon...
Shiseido Tsubaki hair oil!
I first tried it when I was in Taiwan - back then, the damp air destroyed my hairstyles IN NO TIME. I got more and more frustrated every day, it was a big problem! xD" I saw all those cute taiwanese girls on the streets, with their neatly layed flat hair waving softly in the wind - while I was looking like a broom, with my hair sticking out to all directions possible!
I was very lucky that the staff of Cosmed could recommand a suitable product for my hair type (which was a challenge for the staff as well, not only because I am a foreigner but also my hair is chemically processed).
So after the next shower, I carefully massaged 5-8 drops of the oil into my hair - and OMG, it has never been softer and fluffier before, a miracle! :'D
I spent the half day running my fingers through my hair, I swear. lol
I ordered this bottle from Japan now, for a quite high price of 15€... but by the little amount I need, it'll last for at least 6 month.
I`m very happy with this product, and I can only recommand it to everybody that has problems with dry hair / untamable hair. =)
I also got into DIY Gel Nails the past weeks!
I never got my nails done since my Taiwan trip, and spending at least 40€ every 4 weeks seemed to be a bit too pricey anyways... But I really missed my shiny and firm nails, so I thought I might as well try it myself!
This was a quite cheap starter Set that I found online, and I even got another 15% discount on it! Obviously, I couldn't resist any longer. xD
My first try of Gel nails was a quite... interesting experience. ~lol I'm very thankful my BF helped me during the process, otherwise I would have given up easily. And the outcome wasn`t even that bad...
No close-up though... trust me, you don`t wanna see that. lol
It actually was pretty fun to do the nails in the end, so now I'm already thinking about which design to do next! There are so many inspiring photos and videos out there, it's a bit hard to decide!
Last but not least, I decorated our balcony with some nice flowers!
The balcony is my little recreation spot within the appartement. ^^
I also got us a box with mixed herbs, I love to use them for daily cooking! Fresh herbs really improve the taste of the dishes a lot. x3
Oh, and I also got this beautiful hydrangea for my B-Day - it's so pretty! x3
I hope I can keep it healthy and beautiful for a long time! Still need to work on my green thumb. xD"
Well, so far about this side of my life. I'll be up with a little more Gal related post soon. ;D
