Tralala Haul

Hi! Hi!

I'm kind of annoyed because I accidentally deleted this post originally, so yeah... I'm rewriting it.

 A while ago *they are doing this sale again!* Tralala was doing a 70% off sale - which is a really significant saving. 

 Earrings in Mint, Purple and Yellow - here (can't find the original link O.O sorry!) & similar - 472 YEN
If the pink was in stock I would have gotten those as well. Most likely.

'M' Jumper in Pink - here - 1,228 YEN
I'm a sucker for jumpers like this lately and I quite liked this one for some reason~ 
Rose print jumper in White - here  1,543 YEN
I really wanted a floral jumper but I didn't see any I particularly liked that much from Liz Lisa, so I'm really happy I got this one at such a good price as well~
I really liked the styling for it here; 

On a side note; these shorts sold out so fast - and I'm sad I didn't get a pair. They look so nice with so many co-ords.

Mock Two Piece Jumper - Here -3,601 YEN
I didn't realize until now that I paid a bit more than I thought for this! I still like this however ^.^ I had the hardest time deciding which colour I liked this most; 
other options are; 
 I like the colours on these two, but I didn't love the colour combinations together as much as the white x navy.
Cardigan with Flower details - here -1,543 YEN
I thought this was apart of Spring at first but I guess not. I was really happy to find this on sale in the colour I wanted however! I like that this one has longer sleeves too. 

Pants in navy- here - 1,543 YEN
At first; I was after the red or teal colour.
And then I added the navy to my kart. 
Erm... to be honest, I'm not sure why I bought pants.
Or if I can fit into these...
I am the worst shopper. 

 Mock two piece Romper - here - 1,543 YEN
I just thought this was quite a unique looking item and I have nothing like it! Normally, rompers look like... well, one piece but this one looks like two separates so it's very different in my opinion.
Mock Two Piece Dress - here - 1,228 YEN
I'm not sure why I got so many mock two piece items actually! 
And I'm really unsure about this item because those types of leather skirts never really look nice on... 


Subtotal 13,645 yen (tax included)
Postage 525 yen (tax included)
0 yen cash-on-delivery fee (tax included)
Total 14,170 yen (tax included)
Use Number of points 1,707 points
Payment amount 12,463 yen
Number of points will grant 112 points this time

Apparently, I used points on this purchase? I'm not sure how, I tried in the past to use them and nothing happens so I'm not sure why it worked this time but yay? 

  • Usage Fee
    yen(Service Fee 980yen + EMS Fee 4,700yen + EMS Insurance 0yen+ Consolidation Fee 0yen)
The shipping cost more than I was hoping for - I was hoping for the 4500 YEN mark... so I guess I was quite a bit off. Ah well. 

So, now I guess, I'll show you everything in person!! ^.^

These look just like the stock photo so nothing interesting. When I got these, I was surprised how heavy they were! I was a bit disappointed but I wore the yellow ones the other night and they were fine - not too heavy and I forgot I was wearing them. So that was a good!

'M' jumper worn back and front. It's a bit longer in the back which is nice. It's really soft and cosy actually. It's more lavender pink than I was anticipating but I still like it. 
Also, I'm wearing the pants in most of the pictures...
I'll talk about them in a bit...

 Floral Jumper. I really really love this jumper. I was expecting the flowers to be painted on but they are sewn in to it. So I'm really happy with it. 

White x navy knitted jumper. I really like this it's super warm and cozy but it's not sloppy. Again, I didn't realize that the navy bit was knitted but it doesn't both me at all. 

Cardigan is really nice!! I love the yellow colour - it reminds me of a baby chicken Lol. So cute. 
Ah! Okay, so... pants! Firstly, they fit (What do you guys think?) !! o.O I really didn't think that they would somehow :p. They are a perfect length for me so no alterations needed either. They are a corduroy material so they're a bit fancier than regular denim but not like fancy either. Apart from the fact that they are pants... they're really really good! Really warm and if you're umming and ahhing - maybe worth trying (especially for the price!) 

 I'm surprised I liked this in the end, actually. It's very comfortable as well so that's a bonus. Not something I can wear much longer going into Autumn/Winter but oh well. 

 Mock two piece~ The leather skirt is not bulky at all so I'm really happy with this. I like the half sleeve a lot as well. 

Okay! So I think that this is everything. ^.^ I'm glad I got quite a few things I normally wouldn't have gotten because I don't really regret any of it at all.
Thank you for looking at this really long post... Lol. Glad you made it too the end :p

Tralala + Penderie Floral Marina Collection + Wishlist Spring 2014

Hi! Hi!

I decided to go ahead and do the post for Tralala as well. sorry. 
Also sharing the promo photos from the new collections because... Tralalala doesn't get enough love. ^.^


Tralala and Penderie have gone for a nautical x floral look. A lot of it looks like it has a European influence and it's so cute!! 
Looks like there's a few longer hemlines but for the most part - it looks like it's remained shorter. 
Personally, I like the styling the Tralala photos more than Liz Lisa. Even if I wouldn't buy those particular items - I feel like I can still replicate it or style in a similar way - if that makes any sense? 

Key notes for the collection are;
- Off the shoulder
- Blue is a big trend - seems like Tralala and Penderie have used a wide variety of different shades of blue but all seem to be 'oceanic' in tone.
- Florals are a bit tread and 'mixed' florals in the prints are big too. 
- Very grilie touches - scollop edges and ruffles and bows are key features on garments.
- Also doing a lot of lavender variations as well so they seem to be doing their own thing as well as being on point. 

I think that's all I get. 

Also... I don't think Tralala has gone through the same price increase (?) as Liz Lisa so that's good. It's still a good price.

Okay! So I'll start with Penderie first. 
Ah... I just want to say.. I have no idea what the difference between Tralala and Penderie is actually. I get than Penderie is under Tralala but as for what makes it different - I'm not 100% sure because the price is similar and it's not like you can 'complete' and outfit in Penderie (not accessories) and you still need Tralala. 
Tralala seems more trendy and Penderie more 'European' but Tralala still does that look sometimes with some pieces so... no idea. Lol. 
I do like Penderie by the way  - I look forward to trying it in the future!
Also, I chose the colours I think the garments looked the best in or I would like most but click the links to see the other colours if you like them too!

Dress - Also in black and pink.
Actually, I think it's a bit odd but I like it? I think it needs a belt to really finish it off. Also comes in pink and black. 

Dress - also in white x lavender and pink x pink. Pictured Teal x white. 100% honest, not something I would go for at all but I really love the colour combination and I don't mind the off the shoulder look of this dress. Lavender x purple is also lovely. 

Dress - Also in a lavender x yellow combo and peach x pink.
Honestly, I like both the blue and pink! I love how casual and fresh the blue is. Reminds me of Alice ^.^ 

Blouse - also in pink and blue. 
I love the ruffles on the blouse. Really pretty. I don't think I'd rush to buy this but if there's a decent sale and it's still available I'd look into buying it. 

 Skirt - also in navy x beige and pink. 
Again same with the blouse - I like it but I wouldn't rush to buy it. This also seems to be a longer skirt (?) Might just be the model. 

Okay - that's all for Penderie for me. They don't have a large range to begin with.
On to Tralala!! 

Jacket - also in Pink/Brown colour and grey 
Looks like a nice - throw it on and will go with pretty much everything type of jacket. 

 Jacket - also in beige and denim. 
Something tells me I like the colour more than the style somehow :/ But if you like cropped jackets - this would be really cute!

Jacket - also in black and blue.
You can't see it in the ivory version but this jack is covered in lace! Very pretty and quite interesting to look at. This would be a nice 'all year around' jacket if you lived somewhere that wasn't too cold maybe because the texture/lace is also nice for Autumn and Winter. 

Dress - also in blue and navy.
I like this but I don't love it enough to purchase it myself but looks like something a lot of people would like - very Liz Lisa-ish and it reminds me of a few patterns they've used as well. 

Dress - also available in black and blue. 
I love this dress! It looks perfect for a cute picnic. Ahaha. I like the simple design too. This too my looks more country or boho than marine however. 

Dress - also in white and blue. 
At first i though this dress was really odd looking but the more I look at it the more it grows on me, the bow is actually cute and the button down dress looks comfortable too! 

 One piece - available in beige or black as well.
Skirt features two 'folds' on the sides that look like pockets? I guess. It's a nice touch and keeps this from being very 'boring' and 'plain'. 

Overalls - also in black.
These completely remind me of some overalls I had when I was in primary school which I loved and literally wore every day. ^.^ 
Bralet - also in Pink and Lavender
Normally, I'd shy away from this style of outfit but I think this one is so cute I'll risk it. ^.^ 

Blouse - also in Pink and Yellow. 
I think this is so cute but really easy to wear casual or dressed up. 

Blouse - also in beige and blue. 
Honestly, I didn't like this at first but it seems to be more for layering rather than to wear on it own? I like it for layering!!

Top - also in red and blue.

Very nautical inspired top and off the shoulder as well. I really love this. 
Cardigan - also in blue and red.
 I really like this cardigan because it comes in colours that Tralala and Liz Lisa don't normally release.

Skirt - also in pink and lavender.
Matches the bra-let. Well, it's not a set if you only get the top? 

I have these in bright blue actually. Definitely getting the M in these... Also... I have no idea which colour I like the most.... 
Might just have to get all of them. Jokes.

(More) Shoes
I'm wondering if I'd want to go down a size with these as well because they look similar to the ones above... 
Also.. which colour.

NecklaceSo pretty but I'm not sure how long this is... :/ 
(I've been 'tricked' by Liz Lisa before,)

hair clips 
At first I thought these look like velcro bows used to heold your hair back while you put your make up on but they aren't. I think they look really cute and goofy. 

I don't even need more bows but I need these. Yes.

I've seen a necklace from Liz Lisa that these will go well with as well. ^.^ 

The earrings also match this necklace! 

Okay, so I think that... pretty much everything. Lol. Literally.
Thanks for reading~
