I came across Cute Japanese Fashion on facebook recently so went to check out their site and found a top I wanted. They mostly stock Asian fashion items and accessories, as a result they are in Asian clothing sizes which tend to be much smaller than western sizes. Most of the items on the website will only fit a UK 8-12, though looser styled items may fit larger. They are looking at stocking larger sized items in the future though. Their business aim is also to offer a range of fashion items at under £20 each, which is pretty good. I know that some of their items are more expensive than you can get them on ebay but they are here in the UK, had to pay to import it all and are trying to run a business. It’s much easier, safer and faster to purchase them here, you don’t have a risk of customs, you can deal in English and if anything goes wrong it’s much easier to sort. They also offer a reward points scheme (though I’m not really sure how that works), have a massive sale on currently and you can get an extra 10% off all items (including sale) with the code Kawaii.
Anyway, I hadn’t heard of them before and didn’t know anyone that had bought from them so I was a bit worried when purchasing but they are totally genuine and are really based here. The website is super easy to navigate and use and you can shop by categories or trends. I paid using paypal like usual. Paypal is a really easy way to pay for things and gives you all sorts of protection when buying online so I always feel safer using it, especially when buying from a new company. Once my order had gone through I received a conformation email of my order straight away (I bought on a Friday) and then on the Monday I received another email from them updating my order status to shipped and the item arrived the following day. So fast!
This is the item I purchased:
The item arrived in a standard postage packet. Inside the top was in a clear packet, a printed copy of the invoice was included and there was a free gift which included a roll of cute tape, a couple of sheets of cute note paper and a business card.
The top material feels nice and the print on the top is lined up much better than on the one in the stock photo where parts of the design were cut off. Overall the print is clear though there are a few random dark dots here and there and the lettering under the winged eyeball is slightly missing but none of this is really noticeable or an issue as far as I’m concerned. I also wish it didn’t have swearing on it, but at least it’s at the bottom so hopefully I can hide that. I just love the colours and the bear though! Detail pics~

The top cost £12.99 plus £3.95 postage (and I was stupid so forgot to use the 10% discount code) which I don’t think is too bad. I can’t find the same top anywhere else online and it arrived super fast so I’m happy. I hope it wears well and washes ok and that the print doesn’t just fade loads, unfortunately I won’t know that until I start wearing it. The website gave the size as 8-12 but it would easily fit a UK 12/14 too. It’s now sold out but I really hope they get more fairy kei/creepy cute t-shirts in again. Overall I’m really happy with my purchase and highly recommend their website.
