TaoBao review!

Westmend, Knit & Co., and TaobaoSpree review below!



very photo heavy positive review!




A LOT of lolita!


I ran a GO for a bunch of girls and will not be reviewing their items, just my own. As far as my experience with taobao spree goes, they were very friendly and helpful, and did their best to put up with all my questions and changing of items that were out of stock. They were pretty good on communication, they usually take the weekends off, so I knew not to expect a response from anything sent on a Friday for example until Sunday night (I'm located in the US). There were a few times where they took a little longer to respond, but no more than 4 days.

As far as shipping goes, the item arrived promptly (I chose EMS, as fedex sucks around here), and packaged neatly into the giant box above. The only thing I didn't really like was that there were items put into the purses some people ordered, so I had a hard time finding them. If they could have sent me a message/note letting me know I would have been a bit happier. Also a hat that I ordered got squished, but It ironed out ok. :)

Overall I had a good experience and would recommend them. Just don't freak out when you can't find something small in your package until you have checked EVERYWHERE!

Now on to my individual items!


WESTMEND VM REPLICA









I LOVE this dress. I got the size large as the other WM dress i have in that size fits me. It fits very comfortably, and is very well made. It even came with its very own eco bag. As far as it being a replica, the original had wider straps and didn't have the embroidery nor the picot trim, but those are details I really like about this dress anyways. I had been lusting after this dress since last year and finally bit the bullet and got it as a late b-day present to myself. Once again, westmend came through and rocked!

A PILE of Knit & Co Cut-sews!




I got this blouse in 3 colours, black, 'white', and cream. This is the white version which really is a very light cream, while the cream is a very lovely french vanilla (kinda yellowy cream). Aside from a few stray threads there is nothing not to love! The main fabric is really soft and lovely, and the yoke is such a lovely eyelet. I am going to sell either the cream or the 'white' one once i figure out which one works best with my wardrobe.



Sorry for the TERRIBLE photo. This is my favorite of the cut-sews i bought. It has dot chiffon sleeves and the main body is a super soft knit. It kinda smelled a bit funky right out of the packaging so I am going to wash it before wearing, but over all very satisfied with this item.

I got this knit tank in the cream colourway. I really love the bows and lace at the neckline, but I'm not sure I'm going to keep this one. The main knit is like a sweater, which I like, but I realized I only have 2 skirts in my wardrobe so it won't be that useful for me -_-;


RANDOM OTHER NO BRAND ITEMS


Lovely lacey tights! Sadly these were waaaaay too short for me. Curse my height! I will be selling them for sure ;_; I loved the print of them and will try and find a stock image. They are better suited to someone who is max 5' 6".




I got this long sleeve cut-sew for later in the fall. I got it in black and white, but I think I will end up selling the white, since i don't have much to coord it with. I love the high collar! The main fabric is a nice thick t-shirt knit, should be toasty for later!
