Taobao Haul #123254234

*UPDATE: added some product links since there were numerous requests :)



Okay god knows how many times i've ordered from taobao already! thats where a large amount of my personal fortune goes to T.T I've been trying to buy more needs rather than wants already. Even still, theres always this ONE item that i just have to get and it snowballs into many items.........
i'm kinda put off by blogshops right now cos i just encountered a lost mail from Ohvola :( 

But i'm gonna stop already, for some reason shipping is getting TOO expensive. omgawd. 



Lugged this 10kg parcel from the PO back home in the hot sun... Singpost is getting inefficient these days. the parcel status was changed to on delivery in the morning 9am and they only came after i left house at 7pm. =.= wasted my whole day waiting for it.



Goodies! Packed to the brim as usual. 

I realised that more people are aware of Taobao now but still have some reservations about the quality! I have made many large purchases and bought from at least 50 over sellers, and so far the quality is pretty decent for the price of the items! Of course, usually before buying i will compare with a few other sellers selling the same items to look at the feedback from other buyers. Rule of the thumb is that generally items that are too cheap do tend to be sucky. But this ain't necessarily true for expensive stuff!
I do have a few trusted sellers that i always return to cos the quality is good :)


unpacking the loot!
Bought mainly clothes this time round i don't even know why D: but they were mostly basics and some stuff for friends too.


Bought my 2013 planner!!! 

The pages inside wasn't as well designed as those on gmarket korea, but for the price (RMB12) its okay la HAHA
much needed basic loose tanks! am soo gonna wear them out often. costs around RMB25 each wo shipping. Made of thin cotton, its just nice for layering and sg weather!


Lovely seller :) first time receiving a handwritten note!

Also got a few galaxy print stuffs:

Love the print! but not sure if i'll ever wear it out cos its too.. pouffy? and I dont really like pouffy skirts in general. or rather i seldom wear skirts HAHA.


ANDDDD this!

Yes I saw this pullover selling at Miyoc for... $27? well i got this for bout 10 bucks less! Really love the material its so smooth and stretchable!

the printssss. 

Also bought some basic cotton tees for mum!


Still in my pullover craze, got this raglan pullover! cost RMB35


From here

Wanted to stud it but i think i'll just leave it plain and simple like this :)
shall pair it with denims shorts, great for a lazy school day!


And this faux leather sleeved tweed top:

I thought that it would be more slim cut but its kinda baggy actually. havent tried it on but i hope it looks good!

Details of the shoulder area. 


ANDDD this!
I keep seeing this leather shorts on blogshops. AND i got it on taobao for only RMB34. Cheap thrill!!!
From here

at first i thought i wouldnt be able to fit into it, but its perfect! means i cant gain/lose weight....

Paird with the grey tank! ugly legs. 
But i still dont quite fancy these kind of faux leather material. so suffocating for the skin! plus its not stretchable.... ugh

Also got 2 more chiffon maxi skirts. Spent a long time hunting for them because most of those available were the pleated kind (which is a bitch to iron).
Bought in staple black and light blue!!
From here


love how its so light and flowy!

More tees for everyday wear!
Big bang themed!

I keep seeing the BOY design everywhere especially at flea markets! everyone is wearing it :O
These shirts werent cheap.. RMB45 each but the quality of the shirt was pretty good not those printing super lousy kind :)

And as usual i cant get enough of knit wear

A super expensive buy! bought this at RMB100. needed a cream coloured cardigan to add to my collection.

Love the cable knit pattern and colour! I have an extra one that i'm letting go at $25, cos i accidentally bought two =.=

And another knitted pullover!

Originally i bought it cos i loved the colour! but when it came it was slightly darker. guess slight colour discrepancies are common! Still love it though, its so comfy i just feel like sleeping when wearing it! and the best thing was that this was only RMB50! a similar one would cost soo much more at gmarket or in blogshops! 
I dont really like buying stuff from blogshops cos it means that 32094820935 other girls will have the same item (just look at popular items from ashincans etc)

andd i bought 2 bags for going out! gotta stop using my humongous manhattan portage all the time or it will spoil very soon ;(

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!!


Its a burgundy hand bag. wasn't cheap, but damn awesome cos i can carry it in two ways, two different lengths of sling. and i really love the colour! its more purplish than the normal reddish burgundy. Its also fairly roomy, so i can chuck all my barang barangs inside

Gold zip!!

I was also looking for a smaller backpack. and found this!

SO cute right! like going to school.


Made of leather, its a small black backpack with magnetic closure and a zip closure. Bad point is that cos of all the buckles/multiple zips, its DAMN heavy even before i put anything inside :( But the material is super thick and it feel sturdy.


But the inside is a really ugly lining hahah! i think its the brand's new. but oh well who really looks on the inside XD

Okay so thats the end of my haul! I really need to stop spending alr! but taobao has many awesome stuffs... :)
