[sticky post] NEW RULES & REGULATIONS, HOW TO POST

Hello all : )

Welcome to a place to share your love for shopping especially online shopping! It's super addictive <3 This place of reviewing has taken off pretty well and I love seeing all your pretty reviews. However, after much deliberation, I decided to add some new rules... Please do read before posting

1) Please do resize your pics to 400x400 (max).

2) No selling (you can sell your items via the selling post tagged at the side bar) and no advertising here.I will remove your posting access straight away.

3) Please only have 3 pics per item for your reviews, preferbly do a collage like make the pics side by side to each other. Please do an LJ cut if you have more than 4 items to review. It's not that I have anything against many pictures but it is taking up a lot of space for 1 post. Please do a review of yourself in that item before linking it your selling post (if you intend to sell it.)  Let me repeat:

THIS IS NOT A PLACE FOR YOU TO SELL YOUR CLOTHES. THANKS!


4) Please do remember to tag your reviews before posting from whichever blogshop. Once again, a gentle reminder, please do not tag random post like, "Are you buying from this, this shop today" or "Should I buy this?"

5)This is a online shopping sharing forum It's ok if you state that your OTD for eg. Top: TVD, Shorts: Pull and Bear, Shoes: Zara (something like that). I would prefer you gals to share your online shopping buys and not other buys. Please do understand that.

***For people who constantly break the rules, please don't blame me from being unkind and remove your posting access k? I can close one eye on certain things, but there are certain things which I can't tolerate. So please do kindly abide by the rules.

HOW TO POST

- Register for an LJ account (if you don't have one)

- Join the community

- You can start posting once approved. Review or write like how you would post on the forums and click "Save Entry." Tadang! :)


REGARDING TAOBAO LOOTS

Please note that you can review your Taobao loots here. However, if you would like to share your Taobao links, please do so on sgtaobaocentral.

I understand that there are many good deals in Taobao and would like to share it to benefit everyone with fantastic deals but it would be nice to do it in a slightly more discreet way after all, the blogshops are running a business.

Email me at prettyfairee@gmail.com or ask.fm me if you have any queries :D Happy reviewing :)

Cheers,
Rebecca, Best of Shopping moderator :)

Smooch The Label Service

Hi ladies, I am silent reader and only decided to post this when someone advise me to. I purchased Smooch The Label's 'Chic Escape Dress' in XS and it was way too small for me so I asked for an exchange and they gladly did. I returned the dress via normal postage and did not hear from them afterwards. Decided to send an email regarding the status of the dress only to find out that it has not reach them.

In one of Smooch's reply:
We have yet to receive the return mail from you though. Our exchanges were checked on yesterday too. However, should we still not receive it by next week, do drop us another email and we will see what we can do about the exchange. Thank you and have a great week ahead!

On my end, I checked with the post office but wasn't given a positive reply. Afterwhich, I sent another email to Smooch only to receive a Mail Delivery System reply.

Initially I decided not to pursue the matter since Smooch seems to be not replying on their end, what more can I do. But after purchasing the same dress from a reseller, she advise me to post this here to let you guys know about the incident and how Smooch handles their customer.

It may be my mistake to send the item back via normal postage but I also send an item back to Love Bonito and they received it. It baffles me why Smooch didn't. Their non-reply equally baffles me.

I will email Smooch again to see whether I get a reply from them or a system reply. Will definitely update!

Please click here for the exchanged email conversation.

Hollyhoque Monochrome Bloom In Florals Jumpsuit


Not the first jumpsuit I bought but the first I wore out and I super love it! So so comfy and flattering! I wore with flats the whole day in office and it wasnt too long for me as it has a slimmer cutting at the ankle there, only changed to wedges after work because I'm heading out. So much love for it, material is really smooth and cooling. And I can sit likea boss and dont care a shit hahaha. And did I mentioned it comes with 2 functional pockets!? :D

P.S. mine was the first batch, therefore it's free sized. Tried at HH Gateway outlet and fell in love with it so I bought it straight! Now it's available in 2 sizes online and it's highly stretchable!

Thanks for reading! :D

Reviews for TTR, TCL and LB


TCL Premium Riverie Resort Dress in XS
Actually I was tempted to buy the Zara pants in the same prints, but didn't, so at least having this dress lets me "own" this print!
The neoprene material is really thick! It's non-sheer at all, and really comfy.
The cutting is simple and flattering especially at the shoulders, but I feel like the prints aren't very appropriate for me to wear to work (because it's really casual), which is why I am not sure if I should keep it.
XS fits UK4-6 perfectly, because it's stretchy.

LB Glida Embroidered Dress in White
The back design is what that attracted me to the dress - but I think I need to find a suitable bra to wear it. I can totally imagine wearing it to beach holidays, frolicking in Italy or Santorini in summer.
It's pretty well made in terms of workmanship, which is I think one of the selling points of LB for me now. The material is cotton-ish, and slightly crinkled, which I really like, it may be slightly sheer in the sun, which I haven't tested out.


TTR Islander Shrug in Rainbow

I think this item disappointed me :( I imagined the material to be chiffon and base colour to be white, but in fact it's more like satin. It's slightly shiny, but not too bad so maybe I'll say it has a sheen? The base is off-white and has pale yellow patches all over.
On the bright side, if you take photos in it and increase the brightness, all the base colour/pattern will appear white and the rainbow pattern will look gorgeous.
Being satin-ish material, it's comfy and this material doesn't crumble easily, and it's light so it's good for on the go and holidays.


TTR Jemma Pleated Shorts in Black XS
Material wise, it's polyester, and probably doesn't require ironing. Black is very versatile as well. There are no pockets unfortunately :(
But it's really comfy and lined, no need to worry about sheerness, just grab and go.
Unfortunately, I don't foresee myself wearing this much so I'll be letting this go. Drop me an email at windy156@gmail.com if you are keen!

Hope my reviews helped if you are contemplating backorders!

      New Orders arrival from PonyPockets

      I love online shopping and mostly buy my clothes from ASOS as I am a typical local size M/ UK size10, most dresses from local blogshops tends to run abit small for me and to be safe I often have to order L which sometimes end up way too big for me.

      I have recently discovered this fairly new blogshop PonyPockets from their facebook ads and I tot their designs seems pretty good and at reasonable prices so I will just try order afew.

      I am really quite amazed by the kind of quality at $30 range. So I tot I should really share this with my fellow online shopping lovers. If u are typical M size gal like myself, their clothes fit perfectly. This is my 5th order from them alr, I don't need to keep checking measurements and fear that they don't fit well, the shorts/tops/dresses all fit me perfect in M.

      Let me show you my most recent dress for work and the shorts which I got in both black and white and that long sleeve blouse is one of my most early orders from them. :)

      However, the only thing is tat I feel the silver hook thingy on the shorts is abit tough to get it in but its still, I don't bother if I am rushing, as the zip wouldn't drop anyways. Heehee.

      So go checkout their designs and order in peace if u r a size M/ UKsize10 like myself! :)

      Aforarcade Cloud Nine Tulle Midi Skirt in Grey, XS
      Happy weekend! Here to review some AFA loots. Honestly their launches are getting increasingly difficult to catch, I end up just waiting for backorder extras. I didn't get the tulle skirt when it first launched and was only attracted to it after I saw someone wearing it in real life. The actual colour is slightly darker than in my photo above. I really like the dusty grey effect, not as bright as white which makes it more wearable. XS fits me comfortably with a slight allowance. It's also not as poofy as I expected it to be and flows nicely downward despite being lightweight. It's probably because the outermost layer is soft mesh, while the second one is the stiffer, more structured type. I would say this tulle is great for repeated wear but less appropriate if you're going for a dramatically themed outfit on special occasions.

      Aforarcade Paper Plane Skorts in Raspberry Pink, S
      I didn't jump on the bandwagon for origami skorts when the trend hit. Only recently, I decided to get this pair because of the unique raspberry pink colour. The actual colour is a very rich, dark shade of pink, not as bright as in my photo. Size S fits me comfortably around mid naval. It's a very pleasant basic to have and the cut is definitely flattering. I'm letting it go though, as I find it a tad bit short for me.

      I've just updated my selling page at: shopforthegerbera.blogspot.sg

      Have a lovely Sunday ahead! For reference, I'm 168cm, UK6/ EUR 34
