Summer / Spring Haul and Review from Dresslink - Part 1

Monday, June 1, 2015

ALOHA Lovely People :) 

I finally finished all my uni work I and get to enjoy a little break before my final exam! I want to use this opportunity to show you what I've got from a few Chinese Online Shopping Sites. 

I know some of you might be hesitant to purchase clothes from these online shops because it is always hit and miss. The sizing can be different and often the pictures they displayed on their website are just stock photos and the real items may look totally different from what you expected. Trust me I've been there! But now I've learned my lessons and shop smarter so I will teach you what to do to get the most out of these online shopping experience. 
  • Always read the reviews, don't trust the stock pictures!
  • Read the size measurement, don't just get your normal sizing coz it might not be the same. 
  • Lastly, if you order a white clothing, more often than not it will be see through. This is because generally these wholesalers can't be bothered paying extra for any lining, lol.


Dresslink

The first website I visited was Dresslink. It is one of the wholesaler websites from China. Their stuff is incredibly affordable but just remember you have to pay a little bit extra for the shipping. The shipping itself is not too bad, I got my items within 2 weeks and I live in Sydney. When you first created an account, they will give you $50 voucher BUT they don't let you use it all at once. They will give it in the form of cash coupons that you can use bit by bit over time when you make purchases. 

PS: I've linked everything that I got from the website so you can get them if you like. 

First item I got is this black romper in size Large for U$8.77 plus the shipping cost of $3.53. I always order one size up whenever I go shopping on Chinese websites because their sizing is always a little smaller than Westerner's sizes. And this romper came out to be a perfect fit for me. The material is very good, surprisingly, especially for the price I paid. It is made of chiffon, and they lined it really well so it isn't see-through. 
This romper is quite unique, basically you will get a short with a zip on the side and two very long straps that you can wrap around your body however you like! I am gonna get some fashion tape to stick the strap to avoid any nip-slip accidents. Overall I am liking this black romper :) Can't wait for summer to rock this outfit! ;p 










































The next item I got is this high-waisted blue denim short for U$5.93 plus shipping, it kinda looks like an American Apparel dupe, LOL. I ordered a size Large because I don't want my shorts being too short so that everyone can see my butt cheeks, but it is a bit too big around the waist for me. Having said that I still like this one a lot. I can pair them with crop tops and leggings for winter-appropriate apparel (it is freezing cold in Australia at this moment).







































Next up is this green kimono that I got for U$6.69 plus shipping. It is so flowy and summery, perfect for warm weather! It comes only in one size. It is made of thin chiffon and has long tassels at the bottom. I am a big sucker for floral stuff and I just had to have this. The only thing I don't like is the sewing at the bottom, it is a bit messy and not tidy but apart from that this kimono is perfect.







































I also got this Hi-Lo Leopard skirt for U$5.21 including the shipping. Again, the material is very good, it is lined really well and not transparent. It is one-size-fits-all and it fits me well. I also love the length.







































My boyfriend picked this white-blue floral dress for me, he said this dress is so Dutch and said his mum (who is Dutch) would love it, haha.... I got it for U$8.31 + shipping.  I LOVE this dress. The material is very nice, thick and high quality. I got the size Large for this one. Be careful though if you have a big bust this dress might not fit because it is very tight and the material is not stretchy.






































The last one I got from Dresslink is my least favourite one. I only got it because I found it under the 'special offer' section for only U$0.01 forgetting the fact that I still have to pay for the shipping fee! It is an okay top but nothing special really. MEH!







































So, that's it for what I got from Dresslink. Overall I am really happy with my purchase and I give 8 Jennypiggies out of 10  for its quality, price and shipping.





I will post part-2 of my haul in a separate post, realising now that this post is getting too long :)
