Review: Taobaospree, Surface Spell, Dear Celine, Classical Puppets


Hello!

First review here! Last month, I placed an order with Taobaospree for products from Surface Spell, Dear Celine, and Classical Puppets. I also placed an order with DollyPoddle for HMHM products (review to come).

Ordering from Taobaospree was a joy. I worked with Cici who was very quick with her responses to my multiple e-mails. I initiated communication on March 15, placed my order on March 22, and received notification that my items were ready to ship on April 24. Yesterday, I came home from work with a post office pick-up notice on my door! Five day shipping from China is extremely impressive!

Taobaospree rating: 5/5

Protective stuffing!

Here are the products I ordered:

Dear Celine Blouse, white, size large


Gorgeous blouse with soft, great quality fabric. The neckstraps are made of ribbon instead of the material picture on the taobao site. I tied the ends to prevent any potential unraveling in the future. May buy another blouse in the future in a different color and smaller size for a tighter fit. The armholes were slightly large on me, but it was still comfortable to wear overall.
Dear Celine Blouse rating: 4.5/5

Classical Puppets A-line Petticoat, white

Very poofy just like the picture on the taobao site. When worn at my waist the petticoat goes down to my midthigh (I'm 5'2). I suppose I have a high natural waistline. The petticoat has few stray strings here and there, but those can be easily snipped.
Classical Puppets rating: 4/5

Mary Magdalene Replica by Surface Spell

Front of dress

Ribbon bow. Not exactly like the original dress, but it's fine. It's removable if I decide later I'd rather go without it.

Removable flower pins. I might attach these to a headband to decorate my hair instead.

Surface Spell Tag

Lace

Back of dress

Dress without petticoat. I was worried about my measurements, but overall the dress fit quite well and made to size.

Dress with Classical Puppets petticoat worn at waist. Unfortunately, there's a kind of a lampshade effect going on here since the petticoat only goes down to my mid thigh.

Dress with petticoat worn at hips. Looks a little better, but you can see the waistband line. I guess I'll figure out how to fix this, or else I may just go without the petticoat.

Surface Spell Rating: 4/5

Overall, I am very happy with my Taobao purchases. I will definitely purchase Taobao stuff again in the future!
