when lolibrary lists the "full length" of a bracelet is it only the colorful part or does it include the full length of the gold chain part at the end (for bracelets like pic related). My wrists are pretty small and lolibrary is listing the full length of a bracelet I want as 19cm which would fall straight off if that was the length of only the colorful part.

Hi anon! I have this bracelet and the beaded part is only about 17cm. My wrists are 14.5 ~ 15 cm and when I clasp it to the shortest possible "link," it doesn't fall off my wrists because the circumference of the beads kind of help take up the extra space. I hope this helps!

Have you checked your emails for an invoice? Some sellers don’t bother messaging and go straight to invoice and shipping.

it's hard to tell from the photo whether the ruffles are white or ivory. do make sure you know which it is so that the accessories don't clash.

the theme doesn't look very country, so I'm not sure that a straw bag would suit it - plus the straw could snag the fabric.

gold could also work as your shoe and bag color because of the gold frames in the print. and white/ivory like pic related is a safe choice.

If you’re browsing lolibrary, be warned: “Full Shirring” can mean different things so be careful. Sometimes it means the whole dress is shirred, which is a lot fewer options. “Full back Shirring” is the proper term, other people use half shirred or even partial shirred even if the entire back is shirred because they’re comparing it to address that has the entire bodice shirt such as Baby’s Shirring Princess
As a tip, a lot of popular AP prints came out with a “special set“ which was the same print in a simpler cut. It also often was more size inclusive with the back fully shirred if the original JSK cut was smaller. So when you’re browsing, don’t forget to also click “sets“ instead of just “JSK“

Shirring will be your best friend. I’m on the fit side too with similar measurements to you and more muscular arms as well, so look for blouses with plenty of stretch in the arms especially if they’re short-sleeved. Always look at measurements and keep an eye out for JSKs with full shirring in the back.

You have plenty of options for brand, I wear it. Just watch sales groups and be aware of shirring and measurements, you will be fine.

I'm a beginner sweet lolita and I'm trying to figure out what hairstyles would suit me best. I have really thick and very coarse hair. When I try to do buns, pieces of hair spike out and it looks like shit. Putting it in twin tails makes me look like an insane age player bc they just stick so far out the sides of my hair. Leaving it down makes me look unkempt because its so frizzy and wavy (pls so cg method, ive tried it, it doesn't help that much).
Suggestions?

Sew ins don't last on nonblack hair, it's too slippery so the braids will unravel even if done tightly and white people's scalps in particular produce a lot more oil making it hard to keep clean. Shame, it's definitely the best way to wear hair long term.

What do you mean by exaggerate? Over-exaggerate?
CC usually over exaggerates damages (the item you get is actually better than the description) but there's been a few items they screw up on every now and then. Some items even had missing/broken parts (they sold a broken Lyrical Bunny ring for $77 and didn't say it was broken) and it wasn't listed in the description. I feel bad people bought those things.
Wunderwelt is weird because they've shifted a bit. They used to overestimate damages just like CC. But recently I find that sometimes they underestimate damages and the item is in worse condition then they say. It kind of sucks.

Why do taobao scalpers on LM lie and say their items are handmade? Like its obvious it's the same taobao shit.

If they are selling from East Asia and it's just taobao is it because they know people would rather have a bulk taobao order for cheaper since they'll still have to wait forever for shipping to most places?

Would Chiffon Angelic Princess be categorized as classic or sweet?

In my eyes it's sweet, but I'm bias because I wear sweet. I saw a sales post refer to it as classic though and it made me feel odd.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to repair a cut on fabric? I just got this jsk that has what looks like a box cutter cut and I’m trying to figure out how to mend it.
