My first Shibuya 109 loot!

It’s here! It’s finally here!

Recently I tweeted that I ordered something from Yumetembou using Japonica and here’s that I got!

I only ordered one item since I wanted to try out before I order a lot of items. In August there is Otakuthon (which I’m preparing cosplays for right now x.X) AND Montreal Matsuri. If you want more info on the Matsuri, check their website and Facebook event!


This is the item I ordered.

I’m not exactly sure how exactly you call those type of yukata so let’s just call it shorts yukata for now…
This is a jinbei, according to Ria! Thanks!

I like wearing a yukata for the Matsuri and during the event, you can rent one but I’ve been wanting one for a while and then I fell in love with this one! It has Kitty all over it!! *.* I remembered Mistu at Universal-Doll talked about Japonica so I gave it a try~

I’m sooooooo happy with the service! They contact you by e-mail, which is something I prefer when buying something online: I like to talk to a real human being behind a computer. This way, I asked questions and the Japonica staff replied quickly. It was very reassuring! The parcel was also marked as a gift so no taxes =D

I will absolutely order more items from Yumetembou now that I know their sizing is good for me~ I know it’s not the top brand of gyaru fashion, but who said I was gyaru anyway? =P I also scanned the 8 pages flyers Yumetenbou sent in case you are interested: June and July. (if reposted somewhere else, please link back!!)

    you said the sizing of yumetembou is good for you? may I ask you how tall you are?
    because I am always unsure if the clothes would fit me..^^

  18. Your jinbei is desu kawaii!! Very, very cute. You look great in it, even without the makeup. >w< ~ <3 I wish I could fit into one... -__-' I need something cute to wear around in summer.
