Hello Girls! I just wanted to tell you guys about my experience with facebook seller Loli Loli Paradise.
NOTE: If this bag is a replica I'm very sorry I didn't know. From what I understand it's an origional design from a taobao store.
After I saw my friends IW book bag I decided I needed one for my own. Since the major brands use the same materials for their bags and shoes as taobao brands do I decided to start there but all the google translate in the world couldn't lead me to a book bag. At a meet another loli told me about Loli Loli Paradise, a seller on facebook that sells mainly tabao items. I checked her out and too my luck she was starting a pre order!
Here's the picture she used to advertise:
She had black, red, and dark brown.
HKD$330 + shipping HKD$220
I messaged her about an order on Aug 14th and she said the bags would be ready to ship in 25 days. She sent me an invoice and I paid the next day.
A while went by and I actually completely forgot that I had ordered it!
I messaged her on the 6th of september about the progress of the bag and she told me it had been shipped the friday before.
I asked for a tracking number and she gave me one but she said it would not be good for tracking.
I was fine as long as it proved it was shipped.
The bag arrived today!
It's beautifull but I got a BIG suprise. It's huge!
Here it is compared to my hardback Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows book^
It came with a velvet strap and a chain strap with a strand of velvet running through it
The rooooooomy inside
The book is covered in velvet with gold embroidery. The inside is fake white leather
One of the sides
The back of the bag
All in all I love the bag even if it's twice the size I thought it would be. It arrived promptly and the seller communication was good.
Here's a link to her page:
STILL IN PROGRESS GUYS!
LJ is being temperamental and not letting me upload the last couple of pics.
