Miruku Is Dead12:35 AM
This post is 50% joy, 50% panic...
This week I've been trying to upload a huge backlog of photos to draft posts in the hope that it would get me blogging regularly again once it was all done.
It was trundling along smoothly when Blogger sucker-punched me!
My "Picassa Web Album" (which I didn't even know I had) was full and I couldn't add more photos.
Was this the untimely end of Milk Tea?
A Google search told me that I could create a new author on the same blog and start fresh with a new photo account...so let's see!
I'm going to use this post as a test and also to show off my lovely WC stuff that came yesterday and rendered me yen-less.
The infamous Sex and WC cardigan in black
Isn't it perfection itself? It's warm, well made and a good fit for a Western gal's bust.
I think it's pretty iconic, even if is basically says "sex and toilet".
That's why we love WC right?
Next is more WC, but this time I ordered from the Shibuya 109 webstore.
I'm always a little nervous dealing with a new company.
While the shipping was a little slower than ordering from the WC webshop, I have no complaints.
Everything was packed well and they threw in the book and pink WC bag.
But the best part was...
I know this is a stupid thing to be excited about but I've never received something like this before!
Each item of clothing was packed in a plastic back that snaps open and shut so they're reusable.
Bound to come in handy someday, right?
Thank you 109!
Kumatan Nordic print cardigan in brown and white.
It's loose and super-thick. Hard to believe something from a gal brand is going to keep me warm!
It reminds me of woolly jumpers that I used to wear as a child.
But much, much cuter!
I'm holding out the cardi and dress in the picture (to show off the pattern) but this is another excellent fit.
Recomended for winter!
WC school knit in purple and yellow.
Who can resist this classic design?
And purple and gold are my father's hometown's colours so it also has a nostalgic feel for me.
It's not quite as thick as the brown cardi, not even close really.
It's perfect for Autumn though and would sit well over some Uniqlo Heat Tech in Winter.
I actually wore this cardi to work today.
It added a splash of colour to a dark outfit but still looked professional (somehow!)
Sorry, I have to go and meet the quarterback at my prom. We're going steady you see...
(Apologies for the lack of styling by the way. Actually....no. It was the end of a long day and I was relaxing after dinner when the packages came. I'm not dressing up just to camwhore my new clothes!)
On the same day I also received a care package from my dear family.
Snuggly warm things just in time for Winter!
One big pink fluffy dressing gown, 2 sets of warm fuzzy pajamas, one set of pink silk pajamas.
All chosen by my wonderful mother who has a fantastic eye for fashion (even if she doesn't trust herself).
I love you <3
Anyway, hopefully this new author account works.
I have so many pictures I want to show you.
Miruku is dead.
Long live Miruku!
