The Lucky Dip - Irodori Life

Where to go? Irodori Life

What to buy? Japanese Happy Bag

What does it cost? $29 plus shipping

What's it all about? Happy Bag A 5 items with $40-45 worth
* A kimono bracelet [...], * A plum blossom ring (Adjustable / cotton), * A pair of tiny earrings with cherry blossom silhouette (0.55 in / 14 mm blossom with resin coating origami paper), * A book mark with Yuzen origami paper ( 2 in / 5cm square ), * A mystery item (?)

What better way to get a taste of Japan than by bringing it to me? With this grab bag you know exactly the kind of items you will receive yet you do have the surprise factor too. My choice of "dark colors" was rewarded with the most darling blue fabric used for my bracelet. Or should I say necklace? Silly ol' me wasn't even aware that it can be worn as both, not to mention the mystery item which turned out to be a blossom charm which complements it perfectly. Add the cutest packaging and you can imagine the smile on my face. In short, this happy bag truly made me happy!

Personal Favorite? Kimono Bracelet

Do you find traditional Kimono fabrics being transformed into jewelry as charming as I do? How do you like the bracelet that also doubles as necklace? And finally, which color bracelet would you have wished for?

  1. really origina and i think it's a good idea to be able to wear it as necklace one day and bracelet another time.
    as for the color i would have picked i don't know at all i guess everything as long as it's not orange^^

    i wouldn't have guessed the earring to be made in paper ( oki with resin after but still paper to start)
    excellent discovery
