Now accepting reservations for Baby the Stars Shine Bright Rococo Princess tea party dresses!


We are now accepting reservations for Baby, the Stars Shine Bright's limited edition Rococo Princess tea party one-piece dresses!

Info on the reserve process and available items is below!


The Reserve Process

1. Check below for a listing of items currently up for reserve.

2. We recommend doing an initial availability check on the Baby, the Stars Shine Brigh web site prior to placing your reserve order with us.  (This is an optional step.)  If an item is sold out on their site, then it's sold out.  If it's listed as available, then it is probably available.  This is a limited series, and we do not guarantee availability until we receive confirmation of your reservation from Baby, the Stars Shine Bright.

3. Email us your desired order at info@tokyorebel.com.  At this time, reserve orders will only be accepted by email, either for in-store pickup or shipping.  In your email, please let us know whether you are asking for a store pickup or shipping, and if the latter, to where.  We will reply with a total price, including any tax (for New York City/State residents) and/or shipping costs.  You must respond with an okay to proceed; this will actually place your order and you can no longer cancel.  No exceptions to any part of this step, even if you have ordered from us many times before!  This is to keep things fair.

4. Wait for our reservation confirmation email.  This could take a matter of days or even weeks; please be patient.  Important: your reservation is not confirmed until you receive this email.  For extremely popular series, it is possible that your desired items may not be available, even if they appear to be on the BTSSB web site.  We will contact you either way.

5. Once your reservation is confirmed, we will send you a PayPal invoice.  If you prefer to pay in our store with a credit card or cash, you can do that as well.  Payment must be received within three days of your reservation confirmation.

6. We will notify you once we receive your item(s), and they are either available for store pickup or being prepared for shipment to you.  This could be a couple of weeks after the Japanese release, depending on Baby, the Stars Shine Bright's shipping schedule.

Rules

* Once you have okayed the total price by email, no cancellations are permitted.  Cancellation after this point or failure to pay within 3 days after your reservation is confirmed will result in the loss of privilege to shop at either our or Baby, the Stars Shine Bright's stores.

* In the event that two people order the same item(s), orders will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.  An order is considered placed when you have replied to okay the total price, *not* at the initial inquiry into the item.  Watch your inbox for our total price quote and check your spam box!

There are several advantages to reserving, namely that you have a better chance of getting a particular item in a particular colorway, and the prices on reserve items may be lower than what we sell them for in store.


Items newly up for reserve (prices do not include tax):


Rococo Princess tea party limited edition dresses
Reservations will be accepted from April 22 1PM ET
until June 5 at 10PM ET (depending on available supply)
Expected release by September
Your dress may be made earlier, however BTSSB estimates
that they can have all orders filled by September at the latest.  Production will begin
after the sample tour of the prototype dresses ends in early June.

Please click each image for more information from Baby's web site.

Princess Dreamy One-piece Dress - $1,049

Arietta Princess Ball dress - $1,049

Arietta Princess Ball canotier - $239

Marie de Lumiere veil dress + choker set - $1,449

As these are obviously more expensive than a standard Lolita dress, please feel free to ask us any questions about them that you might have prior to ordering.

We hope to receive your emails soon!

SEX POT ReVeNGe spring/summer collection start!



We've now posted all of our new items from SEX POT ReVeNGe to our web site - watch Tara show you all that good stuff above. We do also still have some free alarm clocks to give out with a $100 SPR purchase, but supplies are dwindling fast!  Hurry! (UPDATE: Clocks are now gone...)

Here are some links to the items in the above video:

If you're looking to fill out a $100 order to try to get one of those free clocks, don't forget that we still have many other SPR items in stock as well!

We do expect to receive even more from SPR's spring/summer collection next month, but we probably will not be able to restock many of the above items at that time, so if you want them, now's your chance!

Last but not least this week... new SEX POT ReVeNGe!

We've got one more new shipment to tell you about this week - this time for fans of the punk rock fashion side of our inventory.  We have many new spring & summer collection items from SEX POT ReVeNGe now in stock, a restock of the black Sex Pot chains, and... another free gift! (Free gift is sold out! But the collection remains!)


Yes, we may be a little late in getting them, but you'll always be on time with your Sex Pot Revenge clock!  Just spend $100 on SEX POT ReVeNGe items either online or in our store and you will receive one of these clocks for free!  We have a very limited number of these, and color cannot be chosen - it's a surprise.  Offer good while supplies last.  Batteries are not included.

So what else did we get?  Well, for example!


Akira is wearing the RAD CRUD Asymmetry Shirring long sleeve cutsew and the STUDS ZIP Skull Safety Pin visor.  We've got those.

More!


Here she's rocking the CRASH DAMAGE cutsew and arm warmers - we've got both of those too.  Arm warmers aren't a big item in the west, but they're very popular in Japan and they can really complete a look.  And they keep your arms warm!

Onward!


She's layering the Revelation Hood Check shirt over the SKULL GOING Custom Hood cutsew (she's going for the double hood look).  Got those.

We've got lots of other stuff too, including G.S.Q. 1977 tote bags in various colors, STUDS sleeveless parkas, the return of the Black Sex Pot Chains, and a cool new accessory - the Silver Studs leather ring in various colors and sizes.  We are selling these for only $7.50!

SEX POT is still adding new items to their spring/summer collection and we hope to get more of them soon.  But check out what we have now, either in-store or online.  We're still working to get through all three shipments we received this week, but we'll have it all on our web site soon.

New Innocent World items plus a free gift!

It's a new clothing bonanza at Tokyo Rebel over the past few weeks.  Next up to tell you about is Innocent World - many new items are now in stock for the classically inspired Lolitas out there, plus this free gift!




These hair accessories are FREE with any purchase of Innocent World items worth $50 or more.

Innocent World sent these to us to show their appreciation for the concern shown for Japan over the past month by our customers and others in the west.  They're a very nice accessory, and something Innocent World could easily sell otherwise.  They're available in black, bordeaux, pink, navy blue, chocolat, pink and beige.  If you place an online order for $50 or more worth of Innocent World items, you can email us afterwards at info@tokyorebel.com with your top 3 color choices - we will do our best to accommodate, though keep in mind that quantities are limited and this giveaway is in effect while supplies last.  These are available both online and in store.


As for the new stock, we have several new dresses including the Luna Stripe, Museum Bear and Extra dot jumper skirts, plus the matching socks for the Museum Bear series.  We also have Museum Bear tote bags, so you can have a nice matching set!  The tote bags are really cute, with a jacquard fabric that you don't often see in a tote bag - we'll have more pictures of that when we post our product page for this bag.


We also have other new bags including the much sought-after Antique Book pochettes in both black and bordeaux (these are a smaller version of the Antique Book bags we had previously), Heart 2-way bags and Trump Rabbit tote bags - the last are similar to the Night Bear tote bags we had before, with a thick cotton fabric and a glittery print.  And of course, we've restocked Frederick!


And though they're not pictured, we're stocking our first set of Lolita bloomers!  We have Innocent World's Original Lace bloomers in both white and black.  These are very reasonably priced at just $55 - we'll see how they do and if they sell quickly, we'll make them a regular item.

Also available but not pictured are new embossed overknee socks and satin line headbows.  We'll have all of these up online as soon as we can, and we'll let you know when we're done.  If you're local, come on in and see everything!

More new items from Baby, the Stars Shine Bright!

Today we received a follow-up shipment to our initial stock from Baby, the Stars Shine Bright and Alice and the Pirates!




Included in the shipment are many new bags, socks, accessories and dresses!  We've also restocked an extremely limited number of large Usakumya Rucksacks - we're going to try getting a larger quantity next time, but no promises!  We also have the patent leather feel Enamel Heart bags (pink and white are pictured, but black is also available) and the Big Ribbon bag in pink.  In socks, new arrivals include the A/P Lace overknee socks in black and white, and the Chained Berry Memoir socks in pink, sax, white and black.

And we've started carrying a few accessories!  For now, we have the Saccharine Ribbon rings in pink and sax, and the Sweetest Princess pierced earrings in white, pink, sax and black.  These are both a very cute way to set off any sweet outfit.  The Saccharine Ribbon rings have a unique and interesting stone-like texture.

On the rack, we've got the Sailor Marine One-piece (that's it in front above) in sax, navy and pink, the Friends Usakumya Creamy Quartet skirt in blue, the Twinkle Dreaming Princess print jumper skirt in cream and black, and on the Alice and the Pirates side we have the Marie de Carol jumper skirt in black and the Stripe crown balloon salopette jumper skirt in black/pink.

All available in store right now - we'll be adding items to our web site shortly!

New Atelier-Pierrot items, and a message from the brand

Another day, another round of new products!  Today we received a new batch of clothing from Atelier-Pierrot, with some exciting new additions to our inventory.



Atelier-Pierrot's bustle corset skirts and dresses are some of our most perennially popular items, as they're versatile enough to be worn in many situations, from Lolita meetups to formal parties.  We now have the Bustle Corset One-piece dress in ivory (links go to Atelier-Pierrot's web site), contrasting a bit with the stark white version we've also had in the past.  We also have new Bustle Corset Skirts in both navy and black with shirring - a new feature!  Their previous Bustle Corset Skirts did not have shirring - the new ones should fit a wider range of measurements.

We also have several other new items including the Trump Frill Print Jumper Skirt, the standard (non-shirred) Bustle Corset Skirt in navy regimental stripe, and the Round Collar Torchon Blouse.  All of these items will be posted to our web site shortly.

Lastly, Atelier-Pierrot sent us a message that their President Ohashi wanted us to pass along to our customers, so we've translated it below:

日本での地震の件でご心配をお掛けしましたが
外国でも沢山の募金活動や支援をして頂き
日本にいる私達はとても感謝しております。
社長の大橋より支援をして下さる皆様に感謝の気持ちを伝えたいとの事です。
海外のお客様やお友達に
日本の為に支援をしてくれて感謝しているとお伝え願えますか? 
Dear overseas customers and friends,
We heard that many people who live in foreign countries are worried
about Japan after the earthquake happened, and also we learned so many
people are donating money and/or having campaigns to collect money for
the disaster.  I would like to express our gratitude here. Thank you
very much for your support for Japan.
