crying over tutuHA & barbie gossip aqua

Yay, finally I have some time again to blog. So, do you remember the tutuHA shirt I bought?

Can you see what happened? The colour went off, especially that on those parts that appear as horizontal creases ; ;' (Since that kind of fabric is heavy and smooth, it's not suppose to have any vertical creases when it's hanging like that...) Actually those parts around the belly area that appear lighter ARE really that light because the colour went off. You might be able to see it well here, in the back.

Of course, it is kind of my own fault but I didn't expect the colour to go off so easily. I was wearing this top in summer, which means, hot and humid japanese summer. This shirt made me sweat a lot because it wouldn't soak up the sweat or anything (the fabric is really... plastic-like, which I even liked because it has a shiny effect, but I didn't know it would all end up like this ; ;).
Anyway, I'm quite disappointed by this shirt... I really like it and all I can do now is wear it beneath other shirts because I think if I wash it will even be worse.
Does anyone have similar experiences with tutuHA? I'd really like to buy more stuff from them but from now on I'll be more careful.

I bought a lot of stuff lately, like new lenses, that I'm eagerly waiting for and I was looking for new pants but I just don't really like those pants they sell here in Germany. Then again I'm unsure of how Japanese long pants would fit me. Most jeans in Shibuya 109 didn't fit ;<

I liked these, they had some キラキラ on them, and made the legs look more skinny, it was pretty awesome. Like a push up effect of some kind! Only more like a 'push fat away' effect. Will still be looking for more on days when university doesn't wear me out, because long, fitting pants are still a must for winter~

There's a pair of lenses I wanted to talk about: Barbie Gossip Aqua / Gossip Blue
(bought them here)

Comfort ★★★☆
Colour ★★☆☆
Overall ★★☆☆
I've been wearing them for about 10 months now, but they started hurting in one of my eyes when I wore them last week so I think I will be throwing them out. The comfort level was good first, as the colour is not too light (mostly in natural light it's not really visible, only the inner yellow ring stands out a lot), however, after a while they got dry easily. With 14.5mm they are rather big and have a 'natural' enlarging effect.
I suppose they were made for blue and green eyed-people so the colour blends in nicely. Though, on Purikura the colour shows up naturally and kind of nice on brown eyes, too.

I would recommend them to brown-eyed people only if you want a very subtle blue and if you like the idea of the inner yellow ring. That ring will make most people notice that you wear lenses, but almost no one will be able to guess the colour, haha. That's why I don't think I will buy them again.

As for the next posts, I will be trying to do more outfit-shots but it's so damn difficult if you don't have a full-body mirror at the new place ; ;'


  1. Duh it sucks so much to hear about your tutuHA top. I used to own a hoodie by them with a lot of pailletts. Some of them came of rather easily :/ Don't know if this counts for all tutuHA pieces but seems like they aren't made of that great quality fabrics..

  2. Thanks for the comment~
    Yeah, I had one hoodie like that too and sold it. They should really invest in better fabrics because they clothes have a lot of details. Then again, everything with sequins is rather a pain to wash...

  3. I love that top, you are so stylish * O * and the jeans look so nice/slimming on you <3

  4. Though the designs of tutuHA can be very cute, I have to say they have rather poor quality. I liked the shiney look of these tanks too, but the material they used is a very cheap type so it's not surprising its already wearing away. But I'm so sorry it happened to you.

    I think I would have to lose like 5 more kg just to get into Japanese jeans, there's no way TT I just ordered some jeans from the shop I work at and even now I think I'm being too optimistic about the size haha... These jeans look so nice on you!! jealous XDD

  5. Ah, thanks for the word of comfort. Did you have trouble with the top too? I should have known when I bought it but I wanted it just too bad.

    I know what you mean D: I feel even embarrassed to try them on in Japanese stores! Anyway, good luck with your jeans. Some have just a nice fit and will make you look great even if they aren't from Japan ;D

  6. I like the shirt. :)
    So pretty.
    Now following you.
