Bodyline L523 blouse and S522 shoes review πŸŽ€

Time for some staple items!

I needed an off-white/cream/beige blouse with long sleeves and some comfortable lolita shoes - I needed them especially for upcoming con, where I will probably walk all day.

For the shoes choice was somewhat easy, as the safest option for me is always Bodyline. Their shoes are decent quality and most of the times I know what to expect when it comes to sizing.
Maybe someday I'll buy some from Taobao, especially that there are so many cute designs, but I'm kind of scared they won't fit. My feet are rather medium sized for EU standards - I wear size 38, which mostly is 24 in Japanese and Chinese sizing.
Yeah, mostly. Once I bought some cute shoes from Aliexpress - partly because of curiosity and they were cheap, so I decided to try. Size on the sole said 38 and yet those were like two sizes small... Luckily I managed to sell them.

Therefore I chose some cute flats from Bodyline.


The reviews were good and people said they're true to size, so I went with my regular one.

Buying just one thing seemed like a waste, so I decided to look for a blouse I needed anyway.
By the way, why blouses are in bloomers section now? Bodyline is so strange sometimes.


I got this one in beige color. I love princess sleeves and high collar fits my dresses best.

As always I chose airmail shipping, which resulted in 64,17$ for everything.
I placed it on 24.02. I received my package on 14.03, but I have to mention it arrived in Poland on 07.03 and then spent a week God knows where, becaues tracking basically said nothing. But this is my country's post fault, which service is getting worse and worse to be honest.

Anyway, my package arrived safe. This time Bodyline didn't include a box for shoes :( I'm kind of disappointed. They were just covered in bubble wrap, which luckily (and suprisingly) was quite secure and nothing happened to them...

Shoes themselves are very cute and well made:


I own several Bodyline shoes and these aren't different when it comes to quality. Nothing spectacular, but decent. What is more important - they fit just perfectly. Okay, maybe one foot feels a bit tight, but that is my fault as my feet are uneven, lol. So that's unavoidable in my case. One size larger would probably be too loose on both feet (not so long ago I ordered BL shoes one size larger than usual and they are loose indeed).


And the blouse! I am very happy with it. The color is rather cream than beige (it is a bit darker and yellowish in person), which is good as it is the same color as one tights I have and planned to use in a coordinate. As every Bodyline item - it needs ironing.
It is made of a light chiffon like fabric. It is a bit see-through, so I have to wear something underneath if I ever plan to wear it with a skirt (probably I won't).




This was my mini haul :)

There is one more update!
I got a new tattoo ♥


I try choose feminine tattoos so they fit lolita clothes too.

What do you think of tattoos with lolita?

  1. Your new tattoo is so cute and elegant <3 I don't know if it's intenfional, but I think it perfectly represents the spirit of lolita :D I don't mind if lolitas have visible tattoos, but I know that I don't wanna have one. It would bug me very much if the colour or motive wouldn't match my coord xD

    Also I'm happy that you're satisfied with your shopping! The blouse is really princess'y. :3 I hope that shoes will be comfortable. Have fun at Pyrkon!

    1. Thank you^^ and yeah, about tattoos, that's why I would never have a color tattoo. Also I am allergic to many things, so I would just be afraid :P And black ink is rather hypoallergenic.

  2. Chinese sizes actually are not the same as Japanese ones. Japanese uses cm, but as far as I know China also has sizes from something like 34 to 40/41 - except that they are not the same as European 34-41! I wear EU size 39 (give or take, my foot measurement is 25cm), but most shoes I got from China have a size 40 sticker on them. With Antaina and anything from MLD or Clobba they'll be able to advise you on what size would fit your foot measurement, but with other websites try looking at shoe size conversion tables and average out a size (though judging by this post if you got a Chinese size 40 shoes you might be ok).
