Reminder: PUTUMAYO World Snaps!

We told you in November about a new thing that PUTUMAYO's doing called "World Snaps", where they're showing photos from all over the world of people wearing their clothing.  You can see this now on their new Facebook page, and soon it'll be on their web site too!

They've asked us to help out by submitting photos of YOU!  There are two ways that you can be a part of this:

1. Come to our store dressed in PUTUMAYO (or buy some and put it on at our store!) - we'll take your picture right there and send it to them.

2. Take a picture where you are right now and send it in to us!  The only requirement is that it be an amateur photo, and casual.  (No artsy fartsy stuff, please!)  And of course, you need to be wearing something from PUTUMAYO.  A full outfit is not necessary - a shirt, a skirt, pants, or anything else would be fine.

There's no real end date to this, and you can send as many photos of yourselves in different coordinates that you want.

We and PUTUMAYO look forward to seeing your coordinates!

Pre-Christmas updates: VM reserves, new FAQs, holiday store hours, more!

Happy holidays, everyone! Today we just want to tell you about a few things we've been working on leading up to our Christmas store closure today (the timing of most of these items is coincidental).

* First, a lot of you have been asking about the new Victorian maiden reserves! Well, we finally have news! VM gave us our reserve periods for two rounds of items at once, so we've finally posted the last round (it's ended on their site but just began yesterday on ours). Check it out, because this one's quick (and some items are already sold out!) - it ends on the 26th!

* There's another round coming just after Christmas, and that will end on the 4th. You can see what's coming on VM's reserve page - it's the top group of items still to be posted. Watch for those early next week!

Additionally, we've made some changes to the reserve category to hopefully make it a little less confusing to pick out what we have in stock vs. what's on reserve. The biggest change is that reserve items will no longer show up on our site in the main Victorian maiden section at all. You have to look at the reserve page (or find them in a search). The main section will now only show items we either have in stock, or that have just recently sold out.  We hope to have some new items in stock soon!

Reserve items will also now change to "special order" status after they've been released by VM. We'll keep these items up for a while and you can order them if you email us first to confirm stock. You can also special order anything relatively recent that we've since hidden - you just need to ask us.

* Other news - we've updated our FAQ, and added a few new FAQ items! These have a "new" icon next to them, so they're easy to find.

* We also have a round of Angelic Pretty items from our recent shipment that we're in the process of adding to our site!  Lots of dresses...

* Lastly, we'll be closing at 4:30pm today and we'll be closed tomorrow but will be on a regular schedule next week. That's 1-8 every day, including Monday, so you can spend all your Christmas money without having to wait! We'll announce whether we'll be open on 1/1 early next week - it's also a Saturday, so we may be! We'll keep you posted.

Enjoy your holidays!

Morrigan collection page and items now live!

As promised, our initial Morrigan New York items and collection page are now live on the site!  Take a look at what we have, and if you're in the area, come on down and see it all in person!

We do have one more dress that's not posted yet (it arrived a bit too late for our photo shoot) - the short version of the black dress - and we'll post that within the next couple days.

Take special note that anyone who buys a Morrigan skirt or dress from us before January 1 will be entered to win one of two white whale bags!

We can potentially restock, so if these items sell quickly, we can order more!

Take a look at the collection page to see the items we've posted so far (and remember, the short black dress is also available in our store right now).


New online and in store: Hellcat Punks!

We've been so busy lately that we didn't get a chance to tell you when our shipment arrived, but we've got quite a few new (and restocked) Hellcat Punks items now available both in our store and online!  Some of the cutest coats we've ever had, a one-piece dress that sold out before we could even post it to our web site the last time we had it (and we had several), and some new bags and accessories!

Big Pocket One-piece (3 colors) (restock) - $79.00

This casual one-piece is made of stretch cotton with a polyester lining, and it features adjustable straps and baggy proportions for extreme comfort. Its main distinction is its big pockets! The front print says "need less to say yah". A skull and crossbones adorns one hip.


Nekomimi 2-way Duffel Coat (black or black/white dot) - $199.00

Now this is a cute and versatile coat! This is a cat ear coat, but this coat's ears are removable! They are just pinned on, so when you want a more formal look, you can simply take them off. In addition, this coat can be worn with or without the attached skirt portion - use it when it's very cold, and simply unzip it to remove when you just need a lighter jacket.

This is a duffel style coat with a wool blend fabric and toggle fasteners in front. However, its main fastener is a hidden zipper - the toggle fasteners are mainly for looks, and to secure the flap that overlaps the zipper for extra warmth.


Kumamimi Fake Fur Blouson - $179.00

A first for us - a bear ear coat! Not only does this coat have bear ears, it has a little bear tail too! This is a perennial favorite at Hellcat Punks - one of their most popular designs, available now for the first time through our store.

This coat features a light and fluffy fake fur that's very warm. A hidden zipper fastens the front of the coat, while cute toggle buttons attached via heart-shaped patches secure the front flap and provide extra cuteness.


Riders Jacket (black/leopard) - $129.00

The Riders Jacket is one of Hellcat Punks' most popular items, and they produce this iconic jacket in many different colors and styles throughout the year. It's pretty much a must that anyone interested in punk or j-rock fashion have at least one of these in their wardrobe, as they've been a punk and heavy metal staple in both Japan and the west for close to 40 years. Hellcat Punks' jackets are made of cotton fabric and are therefore a bit lighter than a leather motorcycle jacket.


Double Fastener 4-way bag - $89.00

This big and versatile bag is roomy enough to fit pretty much anything you could think of carrying around with you, and it can be configured a bunch of different ways for different looks. Use it as a Boston bag or tote, and as a handbag or shoulder bag with either long or short straps. Inside, the bag has a double pocket design with two separate zipped chambers.


Heart Choker (4 colors) - $35.00

This choker features a tattoo-inspired metal pendant design of a heart with the words "Love" and "Hate" wrapped around it. The belt portion is adjustable for different size necks. This choker is available with both black or red belts, and silver or black (actually dark grey, almost like pewter) pendants.


Pyramid Studs Wristwatch (2 colors) - $79.00

These wristwatches are designed to look like a studded wristband, but open the cover, and wow! It's a watch! The cover of the watch face is itself designed to look like a big pyramid stud, with a Hellcat Punks logo emblazoned across the lower part. The watch face also contains four tiny studs to mark 12, 3, 6 and 9.

This watch is available with either an all black band or a black/white band. The watch face also differs in color between the two styles.

Note that these are not adjustable in size. Please just check your wrist measurement with a tape measure prior to ordering!


Brass Knuckle Earrings (2 colors) - $17.00

These earrings feature a blend of pop and hardcore design, with the brass knuckle motif offset by a tiny gem inset into one of the finger-holes. These earrings are available in black (clear gem) or silver (pink gem).

Don't be fooled by the pictures - these are small earrings that won't weigh you down!


Stripe Handbag (black stripe) (restock) - $75.00

These cute handbags from Hellcat Punks are just the right size to be both fashionable and useful without being too bulky. The front features a large Hellcat Punks logo print, while the back has the words "Reality is needless to us." The strap length is easily adjustable with the buckles (in the same way a belt adjusts). There is enough space inside for a variety of items, and the side pockets can be used for a phone or music player. This bag is not big enough for textbooks, but it can easily be used as an everyday bag for any other items you'd want to carry with you.

Holiday Store and Web Site Info

Hard to believe but it is almost that time of year - the winter solstice!  No, of course we mean Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, New Years', or whatever gift-giving holiday you happen to celebrate.  And it's probably about time we update you on how we're going to be handling that.

First, our store hours will remain as they are - we are open Monday-Saturday 1-8PM.  These are already extended hours (one extra day per week).  We will be opening for a half day (approx. 1-4PM) on Christmas Eve, 12/24, and will remain closed on 12/25 and 12/26.

We are taking a high volume of orders through our web site right now and expect (and are prepared) to continue to for a while.  A couple of reminders as you're deciding when to place your orders: first, we do not guarantee specific delivery dates.  Order early to ensure delivery by Christmas, and use the Express Mail option if you're worried about it (this shouldn't be necessary quite yet - see below).  This is a busy time for the USPS as well and they do get a bit slower than normal around now.  Also, first-time buyers might want to take a read through both our policies and FAQ pages, taking note of our return and shipping policies especially.

Remember that it generally takes us 24-48 hours to ship any in-stock item.  All items on our web site are in stock unless stated otherwise (this would apply to reserve items and sold out items, both of which are clearly marked as such).  Do not wait to order an item you want simply because you know there's still time to ship it! It is very possible it will be sold out by the time you actually try to place your order.

Very important: please ensure that all of your billing and payment information is correct when you place your order.  For your protection, we cannot ship orders with missing or incorrect billing and payment info.  This will at least delay, if not force us to cancel your order.  Don't ruin Christmas!

Some dates to note:

12/13 - date we start recommending Express Mail if you want pre-Christmas delivery - each successive day after this, you take more and more of a chance with standard priority mail.

12/20 - last date we can safely say an order placed on our site will arrive before Christmas, even with Express Mail shipping.  We will continue to do our best after this date, but some orders may arrive after Christmas.

Those dates above assume shipping within the continental US.  Shipping times elsewhere can be longer.

Lastly, we are still expecting some new shipments throughout the month, including but not limited to new items from Morrigan NYC, Mintymix, Hellcat Punks and still more Angelic Pretty.  (Can we ever have enough Angelic Pretty??)  This is not to say you should wait to see what we're getting - there will always be more new stuff coming to our store, so you could wait for the "next thing" forever - but as we sell out of items leading up to Christmas, just know that there will be more new items around the corner in case you miss out on anything.  Consider a gift certificate in this case!

Angelic Pretty arrivals! Holy Night Story and more!

Today's arrivals include Angelic Pretty's Holy Night Story series as well as new bags and wrist cuffs!  For those of you who pre-reserved Holy Night Story series items, we'll be preparing your packages today for a USPS pickup tomorrow - so you should receive them very soon!

We do still have quite a few items to sell, including the black switching (military style) jumper skirt, green one-piece, wine and pink regular jumper skirts, and pink skirt.  We also have matching headbows and socks for all of these, plus some extra socks in navy (they produced navy socks but no navy dresses - go figure).

We also got some Little Bear's Cafe pochettes and some non-series handbags so that you can wear them with any outfit.  And we received the Logo Heart Charm wrist cuffs in pink, white and black.

We will have these items posted to our web site within the next day or two - they're available for store purchase now!

PUTUMAYO cat ear coats and more!

Heads up!  Our most popular winter item from last year is back!  These went very quickly last year and we expect them to go just as quickly this year.  (We will try to restock if possible once we sell out.)

PUTUMAYO cat ear pompom coats!

We have these in both pink/white and black/black, and they're available right now.

As a special bonus for the first offering of these coats, the first two people to buy a cat ear coat will receive a free Putumayo 2011 wall calendar!

In addition to the cat ear coats, we also received the cat window socks in a variety of colors...

Plus the beautiful velveteen Alice Cameo dress that Midori is wearing in the latest Gothic & Lolita Bible:

The dresses and socks will be posted to our site later today.  (Update: they're up! Socks, Dresses.) The socks are $30, the dresses $169.  Such a deal!

Shipping restrictions from Japan - are they affecting us?

UPDATE:  The restrictions we talk about below are being lifted as of December 1!  So all will be normal again.  We'll leave our original post up below, since delays will still take a few days to wind down and EMS shipments could be a little slow once they resume.


A couple of weeks ago, there was a panic in certain online circles as Japan Post announced that effective November 17, there would be a prohibition on shipments to the United States heavier than one pound from "unknown shippers", or those without an existing shipping contract. A few of you wrote in to ask whether this would affect us, and we weren't sure at that time. Most people came to the independent conclusion that major brands (who should be "known shippers") would not be affected, meaning we likely wouldn't be either.

We've decided to speak publicly about this because the reality is turning out to be more complicated, and some of you are noticing it. We currently carry nine Japanese brands. Some of these brands regularly ship to the United States, others don't. Even among those that do have an English language web store, it's often not the brand itself doing the fulfillment to customers - meaning shipments directly from the brand to retailers may still be affected.

We're not going to name names, but yes, some of our brands are currently being affected by these new restrictions, and a few shipments that we're expecting are going through some slight delays because of it. We do expect this to resolve itself, as the brands in question are working right now on finding alternative shipping methods that won't break the bank. It's in everyone's interests to find a solution as soon as possible, because nobody gets paid until that happens. And solutions do exist, but new processes take a little bit of time to implement.

In the meantime, it may just take us a little while longer than we'd like to restock sold out items, or to get new items from certain brands. We'll be trying to stock up on other brands during that time to make up for it, but anyone who has placed a special order or reserve order may see those orders delayed by a few extra days or a week. We will keep you guys updated.

The good news is we did stock up just before these restrictions went in place, so even after a monster Black Friday (and Saturday), we still have a lot of good stuff at our store! And we do have additional shipments on the way right now from brands that are not affected by these restrictions.

Black Friday deals - 'tis the holiday season!

Check out the content from our latest email blast below:


Yes, this Friday marks the official start of the holiday shopping season, and we'd feel left out if we didn't offer you some great deals of our own.  Check these out:

Online and In-Store: all SEX POT ReVeNGe t-shirts and tank tops just $25!  (Excluding custom t-shirts.)  Regular price $35-$49.  Prices will be marked down on the web site - no coupon code needed.  Markdowns will occur at approximately 1PM, when our store opens, and end at 8PM.

In-Store only: all Putumayo, Algonquins and Hellcat Punks items 10% off!  (Not including our anniversary t-shirts.)  Also, select items from Victorian maiden and Angelic Pretty will also be on sale in our store (including the Fantasic Dolly cardigans!).

These deals are good for one day only, this Friday November 26!  We will have regular store hours that day, 1-8PM.

Remember that we also have new novelties from several brands, including free postcards with the purchase of Victorian maiden or Atelier-Pierrot items, and the latest Vinyl Syndicate magazine that's free for all in our store, and will be included with all SEX POT ReVeNGe web orders.  We also have a limited number of Angelic Pretty, MAXICIMAM and Hellcat Punks stickers that will be included with your purchase from those brands.


We've begun adding inventory for the upcoming holiday rush, and we will continue adding new products throughout December.  That said, as always, we do not recommend waiting if you see something you like in our store!  We will sell out of many items over the next month!

Our store hours for the holidays will remain the already-expanded Monday-Saturday 1-8PM.

If you don't regularly watch our web site, check out our latest product introduction videos from Tara and Megan showing off our newest arrivals!  We have a lot of great new stuff, and these new items will not be on sale on Friday!  So buy today, before someone else beats you to it!

We will have more specific holiday info in December.  Don't forget to follow us on Twitter, follow our blog or like us on Facebook for the most up to date info!

Happy Thanksgiving!

New on the web site: Victorian maiden reserve and in-stock items!

We've completed adding our Victorian maiden items that we received earlier this week to our web site for ordering, and we've also got a new round of reserve items for you!  The reserve period on these expires tomorrow night at 10PM EST (they've actually been up for a few days), and while there's no promotional pricing on them this time, we can only guarantee that we can actually get them in every color until the end of the reserve period.

Here are the reserve items first:

British Check Skirt (reserve) - $249.00

RELEASE DATE: December - January

This tartan plaid skirt is British in inspiration but provides an elegant and clean Lolita silhouette. The high waist is shirred and has a lace-up back for adjustability. Available in three traditional colors: ash red, twilight grey and ash red.


British Check Jumper Skirt (reserve) - $309.00

RELEASE DATE: December - January

The British check series takes its inspiration from classic tartan designs while presenting an elegant and traditional Lolita silhouette. This dress is an under bust design to showcase a blouse worn underneath. Available in three traditional colors: ash red, twilight grey and ash red.


British Check Dress (reserve) - $369.00

RELEASE DATE: December - January

The British check series takes its inspiration from classic tartan designs while presenting an elegant and traditional Lolita silhouette. This dress features long sleeves for added warmth in the cooler months. The waist belt is removable. Available in three traditional colors: ash red, twilight grey and ash red.


And now to the in-stock items!

Flower Tulle Regimental Dress - $359.00

This is the Flower Tulle Regimental Dress, Victorian maiden's take on a traditional jumper skirt design in their Regimental Stripe series. Its distinctive feature is the flower tulle decorating the bust of the dress, and the two detachable ribbon pins positioned on the front of the dress. There is enough fabric used in the skirt portion of the dress that it can create a perfect circle when sitting on the floor. The back of the dress is shirred and laces up to tighten. This is a reissue of the 2008 version of this dress.


Braid Line Cape Dress - $349.00

With a corsage pin and attached cape, this dress gives the impression of elegant cuteness. The pintuck hem, bodice and cape are all decorated with braid and lace. Both the cape and corsage are removable, and the corsage can be repositioned without the cape to decorate the top of the dress instead of the skirt.


Long Tulle Petticoat - $115.00

Every Lolita dress or skirt needs a petticoat to provide body and the proper silhouette. Maiden-length or other longer dresses and skirts are often problematic because short petticoats can cause the bottom of the dress to hang oddly. Victorian maiden, specializing in longer dresses as they do, have the solution. This long tulle petticoat is designed to support the full length of a maiden-length dress. Like other Victorian maiden petticoats, it is also lined for comfort.

Victorian maiden petticoats provide a medium level of stiffness.


A-Line Organdy Petticoat (restock) - $129.00

A standard petticoat will give you the common Lolita bell or cupcake skirt shape, but many of Victorian maiden’s dresses were designed to have an A-line shape. A-line petticoats are not produced by many Lolita brands, so Victorian maiden is the perfect choice. These petticoats are produced by Victorian maiden periodically, but now is your chance to get one if you missed out on the last production run.


Standard Tulle Petticoat (restock) - $85.00

Every Lolita dress needs a petticoat underneath to provide body and the proper Lolita silhouette. These petticoats by Victorian maiden include two layers of tulle, and they’re also lined for comfort. A separate slip is not needed.


Corsage & Leaf Comb in Black or Ivory (restock) - $33.00

These hair accessories from Victorian maiden add a classy and elegant final touch to any Lolita outfit. Made of a stiff, finely textured fabric that beautifully imitates the look of real rose petals.

These are about one inch wider than the “small” version of this accessory, for a total of approximately 3 inches of width.

MORE INFO/ORDER in BLACK or IVORY (bordeaux and mint also available)


More new stuff: Angelic Pretty and Innocent World!

We're doing our best to gear up for the holiday shopping season, which has already started for some people.  We told you yesterday about our new shipments from Sex Pot, Atelier Pierrot and Victorian maiden - we're not done!  Today we got a bunch of new stuff from Innocent World, and the first of what we expect to be two shipments from Angelic Pretty this month.

Innocent World

The Innocent World shipment is a mix of new and restocked items - the restocked items you can order on our web site right now.  These include the Frederick Pochette, the Night Bear tote bags, the Night Bear jumper skirt in pink (black is also available), the Antique Book jumper skirts in black and bordeaux (we also now have it in blue), and the Strawberry Bag (in both red and pink).

We also have quite a few new items including the Estella jumper skirt in both black and cafe au lait, the Rose Jacquard jumper skirt with pearls in both black and bordeaux, Night Bear overknee socks (if you're counting, that makes three items in this series - you can make a nice coordinate!), Diamond Crown overknee socks, and Little Ribbon and Pearl wrist cuffs in white.  All of those items will be posted to our web site shortly.

Angelic Pretty

For Angelic Pretty, we got what we could get our hands on from the Candy Treat series.  This was not a reserve series so there were a limited number of items available.  We have the one-piece dress in white and pink, as well as the jumper skirt in purple.  (Yes, it's called purple, not lavender!)  We also got matching overknee socks and headbows to go with them, plus a few Candy Treat rings.  We may not have enough of the rings to post them to our web site, we'll see.

We also have the beautiful velveteen Oyaba Party Jumper Skirt in wine red.  This is the kind of dress that always makes people say "I didn't know Angelic Pretty made stuff like this!" when they see it at our store.  Yes, not everything they do is cakes and candy and pastels!

We also got new Fantasic Dolly tote bags, as well as Merry Making Party tote bags (not pictured).

Lastly, the Candy Treat shoulder bag and... Donut Bag!

Most of these items (except possibly the rings) will be available on our site, or you can pick them up in store.

Our next AP shipment this month will be the Holy Night Story series, so you still have that to look forward to!


You could be featured on PUTUMAYO's web site!

PUTUMAYO has asked us to help them out with a fun little project. They're creating a new section on their web site called "World Snaps", featuring photos of people from all over the world wearing their clothing. Until that section is done, they'll post these photos on their blog. (We don't know how often they'll do that; maybe in batches.)

They've asked us to submit casual photos (not artistic photos) taken around our store of our customers wearing PUTUMAYO clothing. Next time you visit us, wear something by PUTUMAYO and we'll take a picture and send it to them! You can also buy something right here, put it on and we'll take your picture right away, after you make your purchase. Here's a sample of the kind of photos we'll be sending them:

You don't need to be wearing a full coordinate, either - just something by PUTUMAYO!

We hope we can get a lot of pictures to send them!

Novelties and new stock from Victorian maiden, Atelier-Pierrot and SEX POT ReVeNGe

It may seem like we've been quiet for a few days, but it's really just that we've been too busy to post! We've gotten several new shipments over that time, much of which involved reserve and special orders that we're still in the process of shipping out. But we got a bunch of new items for our store as well, plus winter novelties from the three above-mentioned brands!

Victorian maiden

First, our winter novelty from Victorian maiden is this elegant postcard for anyone who makes a VM purchase through our store or web site, not including reserve orders (they get something even better: a VM clear vinyl file!). No minimum purchase required!

Our shipment from VM included a petticoat explosion - we now have standard tulle petticoats, A-line petticoats and long petticoats, the latter two of which can be hard to find but are a real necessity if you want to make many of VM's (or other brands') dresses look the way they're supposed to. The standard tulle petticoats are available on the web site right now - the others will be added in the next few days. We also now have one each of the Braid Line Cape Dress and Flower Tulle Regimental Dress in stock.

We chose the Flower Tulle Regimental Dress in part because it is slightly larger than most of VM's dresses, and it also has shirring - a rarity for VM. So those of you who might have wanted a real VM dress in the past but have held off due to size might want to take a look at this dress. It's not a plus-size dress, but it is a little bigger and more adjustable than other dresses they make.

We chose the Braid Line Cape Dress solely because it's cute!


Not to be outdone, the winter novelty from Atelier-Pierrot is also a postcard! These were created for their Nutcracker series, which is only available at Laforet in Harajuku for now... but they sent us the cards! These are also free to anyone who makes an Atelier-Pierrot purchase from our store or web site, and also while supplies last.

Atelier-Pierrot hadn't yet released a couple things we ordered for our last shipment at that time, so we've just received them now. They are the beautiful trump velveteen print dress (already gone!) and the super-cute corset mini-dress below:

The trump velveteen dress is super-limited and very hard to get.  We can almost guarantee no restock on that one unless they do another production run, which we doubt will happen.

UPDATE: Trump velveteen dress is gone.  That was quick!


SPR sent us their latest issue of Vinyl Syndicate to give to our customers. This is SPR's combination music magazine and catalog (all of the musicians in the magazine are wearing SPR's latest collection). These are free to anyone who wants to take one, purchase or not (but we'll throw one in the box if you order SPR online).  By the way, that's just the front and back cover - not two different issues, so don't feel you need to request one or the other.

Our SPR shipment is a decent size shipment, and includes more Mind Punk Hood Jackets in grey (first time we've had that color), new parkas, skirts, cardigans and more. A lot of late fall/winter items.  We quite literally do not have room to display everything right now, so if you come to our store and don't see an item in a particular size (other than t-shirts), ask us if we have other sizes.  We might.

We'll post updates as we finish posting these items to our web site for purchase! But they're all available in store now - come down and see the new stuff, make a purchase and get your freebies!
