Swimmer and Ma*rs Haul - Nostalgia and Cuteness & Gyaru Feels

Hey cuties!

First of all I just want to apologise that this post is a little late, both me and my sister Amy have been working hard sewing and making for our shop as we want to get ready to do some Christmas stalls for the first time. It's kind of nerve wracking as we haven't done it before and we've been coming up with new designs so it's really taken up all of our attention.

But when I got my swimmer order from Lolita Desu, I knew I had to blog about it! Also Amy will be popping in to talk about the Ma*rs hat she got when Shibuya 109 had a sale.

Hooray! Here's my haul. Swimmer Japan has been one of my favourite brands for a while with its magical girl nostalgic cute vibe. So when it recently closed I thought I missed my chance on getting some items, but I started seeing a few places online selling swimmer goods. For me the best prices were at an online shop called Lolita Desu. They sell lolita fashion but also other Japanese fashion styles and cute home ware goods. They have a big Swimmer collection too and their worldwide shipping was pretty good too.

I have a few cutesy things in my room, but I think what I got will add to my collection nicely. The milkshake hair comb totally gives me this American 50's vibe and I couldn't choose between these pocket mirrors so got both! I'm obsessed with teddy bears and bears mostly because it is my nickname (Claire bear) and this one looks the cutest, although I'm not fully sure why its in a frying pan.

Inside they have these really cute combs but they've seem to scratched up the mirrors inside. They photographed better than they actually are but it doesn't really matter as I'm just using them for decorative purposes.

These were the main reason why I made the order. I've been pining after the blue box on the right for years. Swimmer does lots of cute home ware and I dreamed of getting the mirror and more that come from that set too. Just totally full magical girl vibes. The one on the right I just happened to come across whilst looking, its more of a vanity box cause it has a mirror inside and it's all zodiac themed!

Well this is the end of my first Swimmer haul, but I know I'll be buying even more and more. Maybe more bigger items...

Hey Amy here now! I spied this hat the moment it came out when I was scrolling through Shibuya 109 online. I thought it was really cute and different but I didn't have a set outfit for it yet so couldn't justify buying it as I'm trying to be strict on myself. But when it hit the sales pretty cheap, oh boy I had to have it, and I checked Ma*rs own shop it was even cheaper so it went into my cart straight away. I love the straw hat cute country feel but it also reminds me of a vintage pill box hat which really makes it something different to me. Two of my loves wrapped together.

Oh and Himena modelled the hat looking totally cute so that totally convinced me as well.

So this is our joint haul, both totally different vibes but they both arrived at the same time so we put them together.

Hope you liked the post~!
