Super Cute Teddy Bear Hoodie!

I bought a super cute teddy bear hoodie in Hong Kong.

The shop keeper wasn't friendly at all and she didn't even let us check the garments before we bought them.

In Hong Kong markets it usual for the shop keepers to give you the garment packaged, but most of them let you check the garment before buying it, for example they'll open the plastic for you and then let you touch it and examine it, but the shop keeper refused to deal with us if we wanted to check :(

The brown one fell apart straight away and one ear is bigger than another :( The pink one wasn't initially for me. I'm planning on fixing the brown one somehow even though the lining is ripped. There are no refund on markets XD

However the fashion hasn't caught on in the UK, and when I wore it out to college several people asked me why I was wearing a dress gown :/ I haven't worn it out since....

(photo linked to source) Proof that the furry hoodie is fashionable somewhere!

I thought I would share other clothes that I have been having trouble to coordinate/wear.

The peter pan dress is way too short, but I can't bring myself to sell it. I can't wear it as emphasises my hips aswell, which I don't really want. The leopard shirt is so cute :3 but do you think that the leopard print is too old and out of date/tacky?

I love the polka dot dress, but again it's simply too short and shows off my now pasty legs :p

I think I have found a solution though :3 I also have an Emily Temple Cute dress , but I can't find the right shoes for it and have no idea what to wear it with!

What do you try to emphasise/hide when your buying clothes?

I tried to emphasise my waist, by tucking in shirts/tying them. I try not to emphasise my hips and I like to hide my chest :p

Wow that lady of that shop is really rude! I woudn't even buy it and I'll boycot that entire shop doooown lol
Anyway the bear hoodies is really cute ^^

And yeah I can't really dress up fully like a Harajuku or else I will get weird looks at me~

Those dresses are beautifulllll

What do I try to hide when buying clothes? I like to hide my chest, sometimes some shirts are supercute but when you bend over or something you can easily peek inside the shirt......

I try to hide my stomach.

Oh my god, the manga is HORRIBLE. It's nothing but motherfriggin' porn, omfg. At least if the book mentions sex, it's a little more... uh, thoughtful, for lack of a better word. I do have volumes 1, 2, and 3 though so I guess I can't say much. :3 It was a Christmas present though so... whatever. XD

It's all so cuteeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! *ω*
I want a plushie bear hoodie toooooooo (((°(=O=)°))) Fix the brown one with your superior skills Nakasama!!!
What about you turn the peter pan dress into a tee or into a dress composed by different fabrics like the third one? And you can add a lace ruffle to the third to make it longer!
I'not so much into leopard print, but I don't think it's out of date. You can try to wear it in a sort of gal style.

I have a huge hips complex and I don't like to show my legs naked, I use skirts more in winter than in summer...

Aw~ Those bear hoodies are adorable. Such a shame that the brown one was kinda' messed up. ):
Maybe you could wear pants or legging under the dress that is too short. :3 Leopard print is sooo cute!
& that ETC dress *__* cutenessss!!

cutielippi said...

ooohhh i wanna have a bear hoodie too, they look super cute!!
no wonder the shop owner was so unfriendly, she aparently knew, that the brown hoodie was messed up :C i NEVER buy from unfriendly shops because it always means that something isn't right lol!
well if there's something i try to hide it's my belly :D
btw if i think a dress is too short or if i'm afraid my legs are too white i usually wear some sort of patterned tights or leggins with it! makes me feel a lot more comfortable ^__^

Franpan said...

tbh I always cheated and wore black shoes+cardi with the ETC dress (endless supply of black items, haha). Mary janes or t-bar heels work well and black bow flats?
Black brogues if you have any :D?

And about general fashion, UK/the whole modern Western world is about a year behind the fashion in Asia. Fashion leaders my arse.

btw that montage of you (in the previous post) is really cool. And you look really good with short hair and every style you've ever had on there :o

Brooke said...

I should be emphasizing my legs but I tend to hide them! I love those hoodies!

Shop N' Chomp said...

I try hiding my ass b/c I don't like it....lol.

<3 the hoodie! I need to go back to HK soon.

Melissa: Write it in Lipstick said...

How rude of the shop owner.

But that hoodie is so cute.

Write it in Lipstick

emily temple cute *-*! try to mix cream color lacy tights and brown shoes in a mori girl way :3 what i try to hide? well nothing at all because my child body. but i really try to hide the acne on my face.. i really hate it :/

GretchTM said...

The teddy bear hoodie is adorable! I really like the Emily Temple Cute dress. Just like the name...it's super cute! haha

αвву M. said...

super adorable! i want them all haha :D

Audrey (hkittygirl) said...

I try to hide mr arms, which is super hard during summer time. Once I become more athletic, like I used to be, I'll be ready for summer! >:3

As for the hoodie, just wear it out. I used to have a Hello Kitty hoodie and people would give me strange looks, but my friends and I liked it, so it worked out fine! :)

OtherMix said...

They didn't let you check it? O_o That's weird!

I try to go for good quality and a good fit in clothes :3

Lisa said...

omg your teddy bear hoodie is so cute!!

umm i try to hide my waist and hips.. hahaha.. i'm shaped like a pear!! booooo.

Marlena said...

I can't stand rude shop staff. It's like, I'm here and I'm gonna be forking over my hard earned cash to you, at least treat me with some respect =_= At least you got those super cute bear hoodies out of it. I hope you'll be able to fix the brown one!

And those dresses are so cute!! Usually if something is too short for me I just make sure I wear tights or shorts underneath. Or if there's a deep hem you could try taking it out? Just a thought.

I don't think I'll ever quit wearing leopard print, even if it IS tacky and out of date ;D I love it too much.

OtherMix said...

p.s. the hoodie looks cute on you! And I really like the other items you showed! ^^

Maybe you can sew a layer beneath the short dresses or wear a short/matching skirt beneath it ^^

Gerrytales said...

I like your hoodie ~ Anything cutesy just grabs my attention haha.

As for the clothes you can't coordinate things with. Hmm I like the peter pan dress :D The leopard print one isn't too shabby, You can wear it with black leggings and a scarf or something. The polka dot dress is cuteee ~ Wear long socks/leggings with it? The last one is cute with anything really. I can imagine heaps of things you can accessories the dress with :)

<3 Gerry

sugar sugar said...

those are so cute! :3 the hoodie looks fab on you! =)

SARA MARI said...

The hoodie is indeed so cute! It looks great on you. I'm not surprised the shop owner didn't let you check because the brown one was already not good ><

The peter pan collar dress should be quite trendy for this spring season, perhaps you could wear a white skirt underneath?

I would suggest keeping the leopard print! Leopard is always in style during autumn and winter. You could even wear it now with some light colored pants or shorts to make it more springy.

Oh, wow! How come they don't let you check the clothes before buying them?! That doesn't make any sense! You should've spoken to the manager of the store.

And that hoodie would be a hit in Buenos Aires. I really like it! :D

Hope you;re having a nice week!



Sanna said...

I just love the hoodie you got!!! I wanted to have that Yumetenbo one too but I haven't bought it :(

♥PopBlush♥ said...

Awww such cute dresses, can't believe you're having trouble co-ordinating! hehe~ :P

I try to buy clothes that cover up my upper half because I am 'apple' shaped rather than 'pear' shaped.

Meri and Anni said...

I want that kind of hoodie too ;___; <3

Anyway, all of those clothes looks wonderful!

Rose said...

aww I think your new hoodie is cute! I have a jumper made out of the same fabric and I looove it in winter, its super warm and the same colour as your hoodie.
No wonder they wouldnt let you check the garment if theyre so badly made! What a dissapointment.
A short dress can usually be fixed by wearing it with tights, leggings or a longer jacket over the top. Or cut it so its even shorter and turn it into a top!
im not sure about the leopard shirt, but I do love the peter pan dress! Anything peterpan is good in my books :)
The Emily Temple dress you could wear with ballet flats or sandels in black or a similar colour to the dress?
I usually try to disguise my legs when buying clothes :) we all have something we dont like about ourselves dont we!

so cute!

Winnie said...

Why not wear those 'short' dresses with leggings or even skinny jeans? I'm sure they would be fine then?

I like that in HK, you can go shopping and then when you purchase, they'll go to the back and get you a new one in it's plastic packaging. Nice to know that no one else has tried it on. Though that lady seemed a bit rude! I suppose that's the trouble with market sellers. They know that it's pretty rubbish quality and sometimes the samples are MUCH nicer than the one in the bags! What a pain!

Oh to Be a Muse said...

i like all 4 dresses. i say, wear the shorter dresses with leggings or tights. i try buy clothes that won't really emphasize my muscular arms--and i don't even work them out!

Anonymous said...

Oooh this hoodie looks sooo comfy ! Great deal! My bf is in hongkong right now, maybe I should him show this cute picture so he knows what to bring for me ^-^

I tried to cover my short legs or try to get them longer than they re ..I am short but skinny so I dont have to hide something on my body.

Claire said...

Oh lord, you're making me seriously miss Hong Kong!!

I think you could lengthen the Peter Pan dress quite easily if you're nifty with a needle and thread: Find a thick lace that roughly matches the collar - preferably in cream and as un-see-through as possible; unpick the seam holding the froofy bottom bit to the main body, and insert a lace panel all the way around before sewing the froofy bottom bit back on. Voila - a lengthened dress that is a bit off-the-wall, under which you could wear some wacky coloured tights or leggings, or layer up a lacy longer skirt - Harajuku/Boho/Victoriana style!

Wow, I got carried away...


Ria said...

HAHAHA I try to HIDE my waist, so I emphasize my shoulders part. That peter pan collar dress is really cute! Maybe you can wear a short black petti a la 6%doki, or even just a black lacey skirt. I loove that polkadot dress though <3

Tara said...

Izzah Beverly said...

aww~, the teddy bear hoodie is so kawaii!!

TheMadTwins said...

Oooh, the hoodie is so cute. And I certainly suites you :D

And the peter pan dress is sooooooo beautiful! Sad that it's to shot! perhaps you can make a little skit for it for underneath :P It looks way to sweet :D

And those polka dot dresses are also very beautiful :D
Your clothes are absolutely stunning.

And when I buy clothes I always try to make my legs look longer then they actually are XD whahahah :P

Alice In Fashionland said...

Oh my the ETC dress is amazing! I think black shoes would be acceptable, because it has a black print?

The bear hoodie is so cute, what a shame it fell apart!

Heart Charlie said...

Awww that little hoodie is so cute on you! I love all our selections, they are so adorable you!

fleurcoco said...

so cute dress, im sooo envy >.<

that jumper is so cute too, waa u can use it for cosplaying, lol :D

Anonymous said...

aaaah cute haul!! I looove that ETC OP especially!

I don't really focus on what to emphasize as long as it won't make my shoulders stand out, since they're pretty broad.
