Hi guys! I did my second order on Taobao about roughly 2 weeks ago and received my order today! hehe I'm so very happy. ^^ For those who don't know, Taobao is a super online China based shopping mall. Sadly the sellers only ship within China...However, there many Taobao agents help us overseas buyers, by purchasing the items for us and mail it to us. yay! :D
There are many Taobao agents, but I've been using Taobao Spree. I was very happy with their communication and speed. Their EMS shipping cost is reasonable as well. However, they have weekends off so they won't be able to reply to you during that time. No biggie, if they forget to reply to you, you can always contact them on their facebook as well.
Okay, on with my goodies! I will be doing a review on the items I will also supply the link to where I purchased them from :)
Everything was packed into this cardboard parcel fully wrapped with sticky tape. Rena also ordered a few things and the parcel ended up weighing 4.4kg.
My items all in separate packages. (from top left) replica liz lisa boots, black AMO platforms, Miku Hatsune fuku shirt and skort, socks and a replica light pink Liz Lisa lace skirt
around $27AUD for both excluding EMS shipping and agent fee
This is probably the least worth it's price on my order. But it was so cute...I couldn't resist...XD
I really like the idea of making Miku's uniform into a casual outfit, I think it's really cute. The fabric and printing is very good quality. Its light weight and comfortable, only problem is getting stares from people that know who Miku Hatsune is. :p
Got them in deep plum, chocolate and light tea (those are the names in the shop)
These were comfy and I love the cotton lace(or whatever it is) at the top, they're really cute! I think these cost me around $3AUD each excluding shipping.
'Cherry tu tu' haha. Deep plum, I love this colour the most.
Around $18AUD exclusing EMS shipping and agent fee
These come in 3 different colours, white pink and black. I was about to get white but I went with black since I already got a light cream (pretty close to white) coloured pair of platforms and I'm glad I chose black. :D
The wings are little bit uneven...but that doesn't bother me too much. I found that the material used to make these shoes make a bit of noise when I walk in them even if I'm wearing socks. It does kinda bother me but I will probably see past that considering that they're so cute >o<
Around $11AUD excluding EMS shipping and agent fee
This skirt comes in pink, white and light yellow
I absolutely love this skirt, I think it's my favourite out of the whole order. It's so sweet and pretty :3
The back. My dog Teemo loves it too! :D
I love how most Liz Lisa skirts and pants come with elastic all around or at the back :)
The layer underneath is satin/silk? (not sure) with lace on the bottom
Around $18AUD excluding EMS shipping and agent fee
I love these! they're so cute, warm, and pretty comfy to walk in. At first I was worried about them not fitting since Japanese/Asian girls have skinny legs, but they fit just fine (yatta!)
They came with the ribbons de-attached so I had to thread them through myself, which was kinda lame. :(
Compared to the real Liz Lisa boots, these ones have more holes for the ribbon and I'm pretty sure the material is different quality. Still pretty good.
It's still a bit warm to wear them here, so I can't wait til it's colder!
Tried the liz lisa skirt and boots on with my favourite blouse.
The skirt is so very cute...>o<
The Miku outfit with the platforms.
The platforms with the lace socks :3
Was very happy with my purchase! My experience with Taobao Spree was great, so I recommend them :)
I will be doing more reviews soon!
Enjoy your week everyone!
