What do segulls? I don't really like creating conflict, but I bought a pair of socks of a girl in my country off of lacemarket. Theywere described as 'very good'. I don't know about anyone else but I wouldn't class pic related as very good condition.
No there was no proof pic on the listing, but they a non sought after pair of socks, so I didn't really worry about it.
Also she over chargers in shipping by about $4.

>> No.7566392

She may have added the $4 to cover packaging materials - it's not something I do but I think it's quite common. I'm sorry you're disappointed with your socks.

>> No.7566394

I don't know where else to ask about this, but have any of your comms have some weird freaking meets before? Like one(ofmany) of the comms in my area has put up a Hookah meet of all things. Like what are you guys getting high? Smoking tobacco? What are they doing, and why in lolita? This was a /voted/ meet idea too. Frillies be cray cray

>> No.7566410

You know they have hookah bars which are pretty fun places and you... don't smoke weed from hookahs... just flavored tobacco? I mean it's basically like going to a tea room, since the hookah bars around me serve food too. And just hang around and talk to each other. Seems pretty normal.

>> No.7566434

There is lots of people who can't be around smoke areas(like myself) and it ruins your clothing. I just think it's a very strange and rather specific place for a meet up... get up in some Alice n Wonderland gear guys.

>> No.7566442

It doesn't even have to be tobacco; You can get plain flavoured smoke vapors.

It's a pretty cool idea for a novelty, I guess. Something a lot of people wouldn't normally do?

>> No.7566447

I don't think it is, she charged me $8 shipping .The stamp states it cost $1.40 to send and I know for a fact that the bag she sent it in costs $1.20. So she over charged by $5.40.
Would you accept those socks as 'very good' condition? Genuine question.
I imagine 'very good' as tried on or worn once with at the most slight discolouration from that wear.
Am I being to harsh?

>> No.7566453

Not that anon, but I don't think you're being too harsh. Those socks look nasty, but then again that's just my opinion. It really depends on how much you paid for them, though. If it was a small amount, then maybe you got what you paid for.
Sorry, I don't really know what you should do. If you're that unsatisfied, you could always ask for a refund and send them back since the shipping seems to be cheap anyway.

It's not your fault she has problem. It's nice of you to be so understanding but that doesn't mean she can just do as she likes because she has your pity. Problems or not, after you've paid it's her duty to ship your items. File a dispute until she ships.

>> No.7566629

So, I am curious about ODIP and Marie. A few girls have said she has contacted them with offers to return their consignment items COD. Anyone know anything else?

>> No.7566669

I still see it as sold out for some reason.

Thank you, but I am only interested in the JSK. Several people have sold their skirts on LM recently, but I haven't seen the JSK go up for sale in the west in a while.

You should probably talk to her about the condition of the item and see if you can get a partial refund or return the socks, as the damage wasn't listed. With regard to shipping, $5 for a pair of socks is pretty standard if they were sent with tracking. Even if not, shipping costs cover the cost of not only the actual cost of postage but shipping materials and even the cost to go to the post (which is rarely taken into consideration and really should be minimal, but still).
I would focus on the fact that you were sold a pair of socks with undisclosed damages rather than that she overcharged you for shipping.

The only thing I've found that works are BLs cheap pettis after I've already deflated them a bit. Anything else is too much, really.

>> No.7566714

Wow you read my mind anon. Also wondering on any updates since her extremely vague email she sent out last month (which didn't even explain or apologize for her disappearance )

>> No.7566758

How would someone go about making the sides of their skirt poof out more than the front and back? I'm considering making a sort of partial petti that just has material at the sides, but not sure how well it would work. Thoughts? I want a sort of -subtle- georgian influence to the silhouette without looking too bizarre.

>> No.7566774

I think the problem is that "very good" is a subjective term, and there was no proof photo so I can see the seller going "I said very good, to me very good means X so I'm not providing a refund". However, I do think that the seller is at fault for failing to disclose the marking and providing a picture, so hopefully you are able to get some sort of a partial refund/send back for a full refund!

>> No.7566802

Following up, she contacted me after seeing my post. She was super sweet and apologetic. She offered me a full refund, I told her I was happy with a partial. She offered to send another pair of OTK's as well as the refund for compensation.
Very happy with how this sorted out.
I wish more sellers were as amazing as this.

After buying my first dress of a BST thread here, I have always been a bit nervous confronting sellers.
My first dress arrived dirty and sweat/makeup stained. She pretty much told me it wasn't her fault because she hadn't worn it after she bought it so it was her sellers fault. Told me to go get it dry cleaned, it would be fine. Didn't offer to pay dry cleaning or anything.

TL;DR socks I bought arrived damaged, seller was amazing and offered free pair of socks +refund.

>> No.7566820


They are true to size but I recommend buying one size up and adding gel soles. These boots are very very uncomfortable if you walk a lot. I probably walk around 1-2 miles during events and these boots leave my feet in pain for days afterwards.

>> No.7566933

Really? For me they are a little bit more comfy than a regular shoe with that heel height. I can walk around a con all day and yes, be sore at the end, but never had any problems wearing heels the following day. And I actually used to just think the soreness was because I rarely wear heels, not the shoes themselves. I'll probably invest in inserts though now.

I wear heels for my job, and I would say these are very much at the lower end of comfort range. If you're walking on a carpeted surface and have opportunities to sit and take breaks, maybe they aren't so bad. I'm talking about standing and walking on pavement for about an hour or more at a time. I only wear these boots if i know I'm going to an event that involves a lot of sitting.

Thanks for the info/help, anons. My foot's around 23.2 cm, so even if they're right at 23.5 I should have a little room for insoles. Now to get them.

That's disgusting and I'd be ashamed to sell socks in that condition. Not okay.

>> No.7567199

I don't think there is a problem with selling them per se, but I do think there's a problem with not disclosing the damage/overpricing them. Other than the heels/soles, they're in fine condition, and white socks tend to discolor, in my experience.
My white socks get dirty like that (though to a lesser degree) even if I put them on right after I shower and only wear them in new shoes. I always wear nude tights under my socks as well, so I don't think the issue is that they're getting dirty, really.

I do think it's ridiculous to try to sell socks like those ankle socks on LJ which are totally ruined, though.

This is something that's been bugging me for a while.
What do you think about keeping the buttons of these types of sleeves open?
My arms are too large to fit into these dainty things, and I was wondering if when these sleeves are left open, does it make the coord look shoddy and lazy?
The rest of my measurements fit into AP perfectly, but because I work in a warehouse and I move a lot of things around, I've made quite a bit of muscle on my arms and they're stockier than they used to be.
Should I just stick to JSKs and elasticated sleeve holes OPs?

I recently made a new loli-friend. She has milky planet in sax, which was her dream dress, she has the matching headbow and no other matchy matchy accessories.

Because she doesn't have enough accessories to spam all over her hair, she wants to go for next saturday's meet in a wa-loli instead. The wa-loli is red, with green and blue flowers all over, white lace trims and black obi. It looks pretty messy and gives her no silhouette imo. It looks bad on her...

I'm not very close to her but we're planning to go together as partners. So we're talking about what to wear. I'm kind of trying to tell her to wear her milky planet because it's a waste she hasn't worn her dream dress out, but her heart seems quite set on the wa-loli.


We just became friends so I can't tell her in her face the waloli looks bad on her, but she doesn't want to wear her MP, and I don't want to look like the jerk who purposely takes photos with a friend that doesn't dress as well as me so that I look better.

She's quite a sweet person so I don't want to hurt her feelings. I've seen her other photos on FB and I can tell she doesn't co-ord well sometimes which is why I'm not very confident she will look good in the wa-loli. While wa-loli isn't always ita it does require a lot of skill to co-ord it well. I can't lend her any accessories because I don't have anything that matches MP. My closet is all black and jewel tones. What to do?!

So I am in a bit of a predicament.
I shipped something to a girl overseas untracked per her request, and I planned to send her a copy of the receipt/customs slip as proof of shipment. However, my aunt passed away the night I shipped the shoes, and sending the proof photos kind of slipped my mind. I finally got home last night, and when I went to check the valet tray/mail rack where I generally keep that sort of thing, it was gone.
I'm pretty sure my boyfriend threw the receipts away when he cleaned the house, and now I don't know what to do.

Hey guys, I have a bit of a dilemma and I really need some advice. My dad's company is having a company party and my dad is helping arrange it. Yesterday he told me that he told everyone at his job about my "super cool and fancy clothes" and that I would be there taking photos of all the guests (I'm a photographer) while dressed in lolita. He never asked me about this until after he had already promised all his colleagues that I'd be there. I know he didn't mean any harm by it, but I really don't want to be some kind of circus freak for some party, which is what I'm afraid I'll end up as. I also hate being the center of attention and I'm afraid of that too. What should I do?

Pretty stupid question: I'm a gothic/kuro lolita trying to move into old school sweet. Would it be weird to have a non print jsk with a print head bow if they are the same color? Finding the right solid color head bow with the right color lace is turning out to be a massive pain in the ass and the girl I commission bows from hasn't responded to me in two weeks. But I keep finding something sort of close but with a print can it work? I generally have pretty simple coords.

>> No.7573610


A dissenting 2cents: we're assuming she invoiced you first and then the other girl later, but it's possible that there are so many items in her sales post that she didn't reallise she invoiced two girls for the same dress. egl_com_sales isn't automated after all, you still have to keep track of which item goes to which buyer yourself, so it's possible she momentarily forgot that she had already sent out an invoice for a certain dress if she's sending out a bunch of invoices for different dresses at once.

(of course, if she had just the one dress up on her sales post then it really shouldn't happen.)

>> No.7573621

Well considering old school sweet was just a color scheme of pink and white or blue and white which then transitioned to subtle all over prints of fruits/florals I don't think it will look good.

>> No.7573801

Lor /does/ look too old for sweet because she looks old, not "mature." She has really wrinkly eyes and an unfortunate face that exaggerate how old (as opposed to youthful or fresh faced) she looks.
When people say you need to look "young" to pull off sweet well, they mean that you need to look fresh faced/not wrinkly and overtanned, not baby faced. Having softer or more cute features (i.e. not looking like a gaunt runway model) is definitely a plus, but if anything looking "baby faced" is a negative.
I've only ever seen the term used in a negative light, generally when describing a rounder faced, potentially overweight sweet lolita who was wearing a bonnet and thus looked like an overgrown baby.

tl;dr "Mature" is sometimes used to politely denote "old/wrinkly." Lor has an unfortunate man face and bad skin, and she looks much older than she is.
Cute, softer features =/= baby faced.

Not only did she rant for 44 minutes but she really was kind of the bitch in every situation she complained about.

Yeah getting stood up sucks but she handled things really aggressively and poorly. Every way she decided to react to each situation was terrible. No wonder they didn't want her.

I actually agree with her on some points though. It does suck to be stood up and I don't think her expressing her disappointment at that there was no announcement regarding the meetup cancellation.

She definitely overreacted for a couple situations though, such as being accepted into the comm 2 weeks later.

Still, I don't really understand why she was booted from the "museum meetup" unless she's done a lot of other bitchy shit she's not revealing.

Well except for the fact that you yourself said you come here to laugh at drama, lol

I'm a lone lolita too but I'm not stupid enough to attribute the things I see on an anonymous message board to all the people out there who wear lolita. That's an extremely ignorant way to think. You're actually almost worse than others on this board since you have said you only come here for drama and nothing else.

>> No.7574205

I just find it amusing because I don't understand how some girls can be so hateful. I guess I come here to try to understand why some girls are filled with so much hate over petty things.

>> No.7574210

there are a lot of lolitas who are not hateful too.

People are just annoyed that you claim that you don't participate in communities because of "most" of us are bitchy. That's a broad statement that is unfounded given you haven't actually gone to meetups.

>> No.7574212

I think you're really reading into it too much if you think that the posters here are just consumed with nothing but extreme negativity. This isn't some kind of fiction novel, a lot of the drama kind of stops on this board and then people forget about it... It's probably almost just a place to relieve stress and frustrations for people and then they laugh and move on. Pro-tip : there are shitty people everywhere in all hobbies and fandoms, it's not something exclusive to lolita.

You seem to think you're somehow above it all and are just observing and trying to puzzle out these strange alien beings here, but you still started this whole thing saying you enjoy the drama and making blanket judgements on strangers you've never met, so welcome to the fold, you're no better than anyone here.

I feel like >>7574212 pretty much sums up everything I want to say.

You seem to think that lolitas are some special brand of crazy drama-mongers, but we're just girls (or boys) with real life stress and frustrations. If you consider us to be catty because we vent about it, maybe you need to reconsider this hobby- or any hobby really. I can understand coming on /cgl/ to laugh at the current lolcows, blow off steam, or enjoy a non-asspatted discussion- I can't understand just coming on for dramadramadrama and not interacting with other people who have the same interests as you because there are a lot of great people who are into lolita.

Not that anon, but I'm a lone lolita because I have horrible anxiety.

So my legs are the biggest part of my body (pear shaped.) What do you guys think is more flattering for bigger legs--skirts that are just above the knee, or skirts that are just below it? Since my knees have that little medial region of fat, I was thinking of hiding it with longer skirts, but that would make my legs look even shorter. Thoughts, experiences?

im a lone lolita because i can't stand ita messes. its hard wearing lolita as is and even more difficult when theres a bunch of awkwardly dressed girls beside me.

I bought a dress and I thought that the measurements would fit, but lolibrary was inaccurate. It's a bit too small at the bust. Even binding is no good. I have more than enough room in the waist.

Is there any good binders that could work for an 30H? Should I just give up and sell the dress? I'm really disappointed. I love the dress and I know I need to loose 10lbs but that won't fix my breasts problem.

>> No.7574759

My instinct is at the knee or slightly above,especially if you're shorter than average, and always wear heels of some kind. Long skirts may make you look dumpier than you are.

>> No.7574777

I'd think it depended on your specific legs. My upper thighs are pretty big, but if my skirt goes just past that thicker part to the thinner part of my thighs, it makes it look like the entirety of my thighs are that thickness. Just barely past my knees, my calves are a little skinnier, which also gives that look. If my skirt is at the thick of my calves, it makes my whole leg look that thick, which is no good. Back down at my ankles, it also thins things out.
So it would depend on your thin spots, I suppose.

You can't really say lolitas are mean or nice, that's too binary. I'm extremely nice and loyal to people I know but I don't really care about a random picture of an ita on the internet. I'm also mean or nice depending on context. If you post vlogs of yourself like you're hot shit and you're not, well then I'm going to be very critical. It all depends on how I perceive your attitude.
