Taobao shops and TaobaoSpree reviews

I just got in my order from Taobao and wanted to share the items I got in case someone else was thinking of buying them. Also the shopping service TaobaoSpree.




Bani Bunny wallet





This wallet is super cute and seems like good quality. There's a little fold in the floral fabric on the outside front, under the cleat vinyl. You can't really tell unless you look pretty hard. It looks like it'll hold all my wallet items, but if you carry a lot of change it might be too small (though you could just spend the change and have less to carry.)

It also came with a small pouch for free.



Boubou Cutsew



This is a very nice cutsew top. It fit me with a 37" bust which I was worried about, but would fit much smaller sizes, too. Very stretchy. It's made out of thin sweater-like material instead of t-shirt like material. The picture on the shop doesn't show the sleeves at all, so I had no idea if they were short or long, but they're a good length. I'm short, though, and they may not be long enough for very tall people.

Boubou Cutsew Sweaters


The review for these is the same for the one above. Very nice sweater-like material. The head hole's a little small.

Boubou Cutsew



This one's made out of t-shirt knit material. It's good quality, but a little smaller than the others. It didn't fit me. Well it fit on my body, but looked terrible :(

Alice Kingdom Brown Shoes



These shoes are pretty good. The bows are removable, but there's an ugly piece of elastic under where they go, so they kind of have to stay on. One of them is attached poorly to the clip and you can see the clip while it's on. But not too bad.
If you don't know, Chinese foot sizes are your European size plus one. I didn't know that, so these were pretty tight.

Alice Kingdom Black Strappy Shoes



These shoes are very cute and pretty good quality. I think they may wear out quickly though. The bows are detachable, so I took a picture of both ways. Sadly, I ordered a size too small and they don't fit. I'll probably try to sell these. Nm, they fit if I loosen the straps. A pain to put on, though.

Here's some other items that aren't so much lolita, but cute and someone might be interested in them.

Red Orange Flats



I got these from a shop without an English name that sells Jesus Diamonte replicas and mori girl stuff. It's shop34122356.taobao.com/search.htm?spm=11022aFQ.1-wsiq.6-3HWM4u They fit, I guess since I wear a smaller size in flats. They're more orangy irl. The bottoms are kind of nubbly, but in a cute way. They seem a little like they'll wear out quickly, but they were inexpensive so I don't mind.

Flowery Headband



This is a headband that goes around the top of your head in a kind of 60's-ish way. It's adjustable. Honestly, it looked a lot better in the shop photo. It looks pretty cheap, and I could have made one myself that looked as better for the same price.

TaobaoSpree

TaobaoSpree is a very good shopping service. Everything came well-packaged and undamaged. They were very helpful and even asked me if I wanted the orange shoes since they were a strange color. I would highly recommend them, even though you have to make a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet honestly makes it easier to keep track of what you order.
