Cute Japanese Fashion -Review Wigs and Jumpers



Hey every one- how are you all, Today is a sponsored review of 2 items from Cute Japanese Fashion.
I picked 2 items one being a lovely looking Jumper and a wig that I spied that looked really nice, So let's check em out.
What I adore about Cute Japanese Fashion is the items are not to crazy kawaii but a nice causal range of items that have a cute little Asain fashion twist on them , stuff you might find on the high street but with that extra cuteness added to them.
My order came in a blueish parcel bag, both items were sealed well and packed neatly, as well they came with a cute gift of business cards , and some sweet little stickers with a pen too! ( Which I have been using btw!)
So first up is this jumper I picked!


It was the bow that attracted me to this jumper the bow on the front and the sailor like collar or a pan collar if you wana call it that. It looked soo cute also its a knitwear kind so its nice and cosy, has a little bit of stretch to it and is in a cream off white shade.
I really like this jumper cause its just soo cute! And because its a simple style it can go with any style or vary it in many outfit options! 



I thought it would look adorable with my own shorts ( from new look) and teaming them up with the neko/Kitty tights from Japanese Cute Fashion - See more outfits on my youtube - making this a cute yet causal outfit for any kawaii day! I think I may wear this to a casual meet up I have  in my diary in the next month. I will take lots of pictures!



  Kyaa I just love this little outfit idea! The only thing I dislike about the jumper is that it is a tad on the short side for me, nothing to major but that's a personal thing I like. heh . Moving on to the wig.




 So the wig came in its plastic bag, in a net and free wig cap like all the other wigs I have bought in the past - thumbs up!
I love the look of this wig the curls are so nice, its not a very long wig but a nice length below the shoulders. I did notice my wigs inside that its a little untidy with the ribbons at the neck and the clips for holding it in place, but this is very likely to be when it was made in production , however this has not effected the wig in any way.



The above image is the wig right out the bag so its a bit messy as I gave it a shake! so my bad.
The wig fits well and it is light to wear, the fibres are good not to thin but not to thick.
The wig is however shiny. A big pet hate of mine but am sure a bit of hair spray/ dry shampoo ( only do this if you have lots of practice with wigs here guys!) and wear will dull this down.
I love the shade of purple is very lush and bright not something for every day use ,might I add.  It  will look amazing with the right vamp or grunge make up. Well that is my plan for it anyway! I think it would really go well with the skull cardigan I got a few months back from Cute Japanese fashion.

So there you have it , I would suggest you check out the items over at Cute Japanese Fashion and the Facebook page, they are coming out with new and more kawaii items and other adorable pieces that you kawaii lovers would like. Everything comes at an affordable price and the shipping comes super quick.

Till next time!

Tartan's top five Kawaii Christmas Shops Guide

Hey every one! Yuno what can be super hard? Buying for a loved one or a friend who is super Kawaii , they can be super tough to buy for! So I made up a list of Kawaii items that I think would make a super kawaii gift for the Kawaii cutie that has everything already! I also have done my best to stick to UK retailers as already Christmas is sneaking right up on us! Kyaaa~

Straight in at number 5 am going to show you Kawaii Club Subscription brought to you by Keep secret , Keep it Kawaii. Based here in the UK! This is a great idea for any Kawaii lover, You can pick the kind of Subscription  you want and then get it addressed to the person to the box and every month is a surprise! With goodies all the way from Japan and from licensed companies this will not disappoint!


At number 4 check out Cutesy Kinky for a full range of Kawaii Fashion from cute fairy kei to Lolita outfits. Not only that you can find a range of cosplay and other Kawaii bits and bobs , which are great for stocking fillers and small gifts for giving. I am loving the new Kawaii Winter range full of warm cosy looking hoodies ! Not only will you stay super warm you will look super Kawaii at the same time! You can find so many cute outfits here!

In at number 3 and a personal fave shop of mine will be the lovely and cute Frilly Pops who can be found on Esty. The owner is the queen of pom poms and puts my own home made ones to pom pom shame. You can get the most adorable pom pom earring and even garlands to make any Kawaii lover fall in love with such a cute gift! From wearing them to displaying them in your very own kawaii space! These will be a hit for those who like to stand out from the crowd and are super quirky earrings to wear~ I must have at least 5 pairs of these adorable earrings!


Coming in at number 2 I decided to pick ArtBox a other  online based UK retailer and what I adore about ArtBox is the FREE shipping and little extras that you can add to your basket as a gift! Find your Kawaii Cards and items here. I have a soft spot for all the Soft toys and the Plush dolls!

And in at number 1 I am picking a small business called ILoveCrafty. A really sassy and trendy yet Kawaii online store that I have also used, I have used all the shops listed here. And I love the designs and the owners style here.  I have a few items and love them dearly. From really being a mermaid to crazy cat lady items there is something for every one. I have to admit the Donut stuff is so cute a mix of yummy food ( I love iced donuts!)  cute pastels and dash of glitter is so adorable!



I hope my small shop guide will help you with your christmas shopping guys!
Later, Tartan xox

Kawaii Club November un boxing!

Hey every one it is that time again for a Kawaii Club un boxing post!

I was going to do a Video un boxing but the room I film in has a lack of space as I had to haul everything out for the guy to service my boiler and well he never appeared. So not amused  about that so till they have been and gone am a bit stuck!
Any way this little Box came in the post for me- yay!



This month the Kawaii club theme is Sushi , last month was baking so we have a kitchen theme going on. And our goodies are wrapped up in Yellow gift paper.


At 1st glace there is quite a lot of items packed in here which all are related to making sushi and food for your bento boxes.


Can you spot the cute Rilakkuma stuff? And lots of handy items for creating Kawaii food too.


So what did we get in the Kawaii club box then?
There is one pair of Chopsticks with the Kawaii character Doraemon on them! Cute.
A My Melody Condiments plate which is so adorable, you fill this plate with soya sauce on it or things like pickled ginger or wasabi.

The other items are all kinds of Cutters there is a Funny face seaweed cutter which you can make cute little faces on your bento and kawaii food. A set of 3 Bento Cutters  which has different body parts such as faces with different emotions hair styles hearts and other cute accessories to add to the creations you make. A Rilakkuma San X Sando Cutter, which is a cute sandwiches cutter that makes the cutest sandwiches ever lol! And they are bite size too great for little fingers and big kids for lunch boxes !

And lastly a set of 3 Sushi moulds that come with a  spatula, featuring a heart flower and panda to make adorable and kawaii sushi of your choice!
Great items to add to you Kawaii Kitchens and a fun yet cute way to try out making your own Japanese meals!

Till next time!

Keep it Secret's *NEW* Kawaii Range!


Hello every Cutie!
Today I will be a sponsored review for keep-it-secret. Your UK retailer of Kawaii goodies. This is a very exciting review because these are BRAND NEW IN!
Coming soon!!
So with out further a due, I give you the most Kawaii, pop culture clothing line, that is only available at Keep it Secret in the UK.
JUIZYWOOZY!
I have been in love with this brand as soon as I lay my eyes on it! I have wanted some of their stuff so long! Its a colourful vibrate and the most kawaii designs. huhuh I fell in love- so much Kawaii.
So I got my parcel in the post and am going to show you what I got ! eee!

Item Arrival
This is the item boxed- how cute it this?! Its shaped and designed as a milk carton and is so colourful and cute.There is even a window part to see your item- nyaa cute. I love the designs and images the milk carton.
The product I got to review was inside, Its a Jumper and when I took it out the first thing I noticed how soft it was- like super soft.

The Item
Once laid out  you can see the jumper is long sleeved  has a image on it. The image is very clear and very big. Great for a statement piece.The colour is a lovely sky blue, I was super happy to get a colour I don't own or wear much as I saw this as a great chance to experiment with making up a outfit.
 I really had a hard time at 1stas I had nothing to go with the blue ...but because there is few pink details in the jumper. I teamed it up with other pinks to make a nice overall look. The Slogan on the top says '' Feeling blue.'' and the picture is a super cute bear  wearing a pink and white bow tie,whom seems to have used the paint bucket to paint lots of blue . Under the slogan it has some Kanji and  the juizy woozy signature. It also has a printed juizy woozy on the back at the base of the neck. You will find this item is also a round neck line shape. nyaa its just so cute!



Size
This line of product have their own sizing system. They are numbers 1-4 and a 1 works out as a extra small or a uk 6 , The  2 works out as small and a uk 8, The  3 a medium and a uk 10, and  finally the 4 works out as a large and is a uk 12.
I got a 2 size which is a uk 8. Am a size 10-12 UK size ( I love baggy jumpers!) and I found this jumper to be a nice size on me and it has some room so you can layer up in the colder weather! So am very happy with the size and  it is made of very soft 100% combed cotton.

Product quality 
The image is printed on to the jumper, I checked the inside to see if print was sticky on the inside. I find some times jumpers or tops often have that and it is annoying but its not the case hear- yay!
The Jumper is not the thickest jumper I own , but its not paper thin either which means you just layer up on colder weather and you can wear this jumper with out melting either. haha! All the stitching is neat and tidy. I found no lose threads .So am super happy with the quality of this jumper 

Over all thoughts
Over all, I love my jumper, is is super comfortable on and so colourful, The box is came in is so cute and the character on the jumper is so sweet and adorable If you love the fashion and pop - culture this is your sort of thing. I would recommend these to a friend who also likes this kind of style and will be looking forward to more item that will be coming into stock! I have seen some sneaky insights at Keep it Secrets Instagram and fallen in love with some of the other items.

Rate out of 5 star's..its gona be 5! I love it so much and its super cute and colourful! I cant wait to show it off - heehee.

I hope you all enjoyed my in-depth review of the new kawaii clothing range that is coming out at Keep it Secret. I hope all my cute readers will be wanting a statement piece of their own!

So till then, stay Kawaii! Tartan <3
