I have combed through the memories and read some of the reviews on the winter coats but I would like to get some recs.
Basically, winter will be here soon so I need a winter coat that will keep me warm but I can't afford a brand coat. So I thought a coat from one of the brands on taobao might do quite well. So, the temperatures for winter here would be about 5 degrees Celcius min, I think.
If you had personal experience getting a coat from any of the brands, please tell me whether the coat was warm and whether it was up to your expectations. And especially if you had a BAD experience, I would like to hear it. I don't want to buy a coat that doesn't fit or worse yet, isn't warm at all. If you don't mind, please do include the shopping service you used to order the coat from.
Also do you think I would be better off buying a normal winter coat (non-loli) with the money I would spend on a loli winter coat? Or rather, are the coats of good value for money? I hope this question is appropriate, I apologize if it isn't.
I would also appreciate recommendations for jackets if you have any. :)
Thank you so much girls!
Hello to all. There were many discussions about replicas, but my situation is a bit different. I don't mind replica owners, but for some reasons can't justify buying one for myself (though I own and love a few that I got in my early lolita-days). But I really like the color combo of the SC lavander skirt and am thinking of getting it to re-sew into a ruffle miniskirt. What do you think? Would it still be the same replica case, or not, since the item design is drastically different from brand?
UPD. After little thought I decided that I'll simply commission some fabric with my own pastel design - cost wise it's the same and I'll sleep well at night. Thanks for the comments, they were a trigger to a better solution.
I've been looking for a list of indie brands/designers (ex: Megan Maude, English Charm, Lily of the Valley) that's recent and had little luck. Any suggestions?
