Saturday, September 25, 2010 Haul/Initial Review Part 2

continued from the previous post!

3. Buckle Middle Height Cylinder Army Boot in Black, $10.86The stock photos that they had showed girls wearing these type of boots, but the one that I received was the one I had in mind. Sadly, they don't look good on me because of my muscular calves! T_T. I feel like these are really good quality and would definitely look good on a girl with skinny legs.

4. NANING9 Belt Round Toe Flat Heel Boot in Black, $12.75
This pair is definitely one of the copies, but it's a good quality copy! The tongue of the shoe is puffy and the laces are the cheap stretchy kind. These also don't look good on me, but they're cute!

Overall, it was a good haul. I'll definitely order from them again, but this time order my correct size!!!

Friday, September 24, 2010 Haul/Initial Review Part 1

My obsession lately: fashion wholesales from Asia. First, it was, then Asia Fashion Wholesale, and the most exciting, I couldn't resist!!!
I initially ordered 5 pairs of boots for $64.61. Their prices ranged from $10.86 to $14.75. I picked UPS for shipping and that was $57.41. My total was $122.02, meanin
g that each one was around $24 each which is a really good deal.
I ordered on a Sunday and on t
he following Sunday, I received an email saying that one of my items was out of stock. I decided to ship the in stock items and just get credit for the out of stock one. The items shipped on Monday and I received them today which is a Friday, so overall, it took 2 weeks total and 4 days to ship.
Right after they shipped it, I realized that I ordered the wrong size. My
dumbass was so excited that I didn't read things clearly and thought the sizes were in European sizing. They're actually in China sizing. I ordered China size 37 which equals US size 6. All of them fit, but some are obviously not comfortable, so I'm planning to give some to my friend who is a size 5 1/2 and loves asian fashion too, so lucky her : ].
Another thing to note is the strong, out of the factory smell
. At first, I thought it was fine. They smelled exactly like the wedges I got from Forever21, but then my eyes started to burn a little and even my sister smelled it from downstairs in the living room! They're outside in the backyard now, airing out.

Now on to the pictures!

All the shoes came in a small box. As you can see, they were squished in there, but they're in good shape.

1. Double-Buckle High Cylinder PU Material Boot in Brown, $12.25
I thought that these would be stiff, like shown in the picture, but they're not and they have a zipper near the ankle so it's easier to put on. It fit my size 7 feet. You do have to tug it all the way up though. Also, the knee area gets tight when you bend your knees. They're pretty cute for thigh high boots!

2. Overlapping Bandage Inclined Zipper Boots in Brown, $14.75
These are my favorite pair and the only pair I'll be able to keep! They fit my size 7 feet even though they're a size 6 and they're true to the stock photos.These are my favorite pair! They fit my size 7 feet even though it's a size 6 and they're true to the picture.

no more

i really need to stop wearing gray and black. i realized that i've been wearing the combo for the past 3 asian americans women classes. >_< IMG_3818
h&m sweater, american apparel tap short, target tights, zipia wedges

went to target in search of elf's studio blush in peachy keen (want it so badly!), but they didn't have it so got these instead:

in a blush phase right now -__-

hooray, received my order from through Smoochiezz's Sprees! If you're one of those people who love the stuff from Zipia (which is a Korean wholesale site), but can't make the minimum $300 to order, you can enter a spree! In a spree, one person takes the orders, collects the money, and then mails it out.
For a couple of frustrating days, I couldn't find a spree that was 1) going on and 2) that could ship to the US. I finally found one that was open, accepted PayPal, and shipped to the US and that was Smoochiezz's Sprees!!!

Here's my order:

"Trendy Style Wedge Heel" $28
After missing out on the oxford wedges on the Forever21 website, I went crazy trying to find a pair somewhere else. They had them at Zipia and now my hunt is over!
I got a Korean size 245. In size charts, I would be a 240 which equals US size 7, but I checked the measurements they gave and went with a 245, which fits! Also, the quality is good, not cheap!

"Mini Cap Top" $10
I like to wear these type of bras and this one fit (it's stretchy) being those "One Size" sizes. the cups are a little big for my 32a, but it's also good quality!

I can't wait to order again. Zipia always has new stuff every other day, which makes me want to order even more!

in worthy pain

yay my mom came home from the philippines on monday and brought some goodies:
munching on filipino candies and beginning to use Kojie San Skin Lightening Soap and lotion!

received my shoes today from when labor day sales were going on. needed simple flats to slip on and go. i was afraid they would be stiff, but they're not!

thrifted top & belt, UO high waisted cigarette jeans, charlotte russe flats

ate at Loving Hut today, a vegetarian restaurant and had a delicious coconut cake!

stopped by walgreens after and got a Remington Smooth & Silky Body Curve Epilator (finally)! also got a Clio palmperfect electric shaver because it was cheap ($10) and i'm tired of shaving with a razor and shaving cream -__-. we'll see how it turns out.

a good thrifting trip

went on a much needed thrifting trip. i was itching to go this whole week! was happy to score some good items: a cropped polka dot button up, a scalloped cropped tank, a knitted tube top, a (perfect length) maxi skirt, and bass oxfords. i actually got things i wanted : ].

so the end is nearing for the 3rd week of school (thank goodness!) and it's been way better compared to the first two. appreciated the 3 day weekend and got over my cold that was caused by stress and the girl sitting next to me.
h&m sweater, UO tank & jeggings, F21 wedges

yay it was cold enough to wear a sweater today! : ] got the shoes i ordered from F21 last week when i was depressed and was so happy! immediately i thought of frankenstein and the monster mash started playing in my head. also thought of lady gaga and her monsters : ]

Fisherman's's too strong, but kept the tin.
