Angelic Pretty Candy Sprinkle Salopette Lucky Pack + Baby, the Stars Shine Bright Kumakumya-Chan Blanket Mook

I've been fortunate enough to be able to indulge in several lolita purchases over the holiday season. For the first time, I was able to order directly from Angelic Pretty (well, Angelic Pretty USA at least). I was sad to see the Candy Sprinkle print escape me on the international site, so I pounced as soon as I knew it would go live on the Angelic Pretty USA site. I had a small kink in my order since the shipping address didn't match my billing address that I gave, but I was able to clear that up in an email chain with AP USA and get my item shipped to my fiance's house rather than our apartment which is generally more inconvenient in terms of mail delivery. Once I got the lucky pack, I was really pleased with the items especially the soft purse. The salopette was somewhat tight on me, so I'll be wanting to lose inches before I wear it for a long period again. I coordinated it to have a happy night of sushi and seeing the Evangelion 3.0 movie at the theater. 
The entirety of the lucky pack. I also got Style Savvy Trendsetters in the mail that day. ^_^

My other main purchase was the fleece blanket that Baby, the Stars Shine Bright released recently. I don't actually have any Baby items in my wardrobe, but I couldn't resist getting the adorable bear hood blanket that I'm wearing even as I type this post. I only got the item through the kindness of a girl in my local comm who was willing to do a group order so that we could absorb the cost of shipping better. 

The item came packaged in a large sized paper box showing off the model wearing the blanket. The 'mook' portion was actually rather small and only features a few photos of the model wearing the dress which matches that series. I honestly don't mind that aspect, however, since I mostly bought the item set for the lovely fleece blanket. The blanket even features a nice button to use to clasp around your shoulders rather than sort of awkwardly wrapping around for warmth.

Finally, I'd like to invite you to follow me on my Instagram, BeyondKawaii. I've finally started being more active on that site, so you can check it out for more regular pictures of my purchases and outfits.
