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:
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

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 email@example.com or ask.fm me if you have any queries :D Happy reviewing :)

Love Bonito's Pattre Pants in XS
I own the Zachery Pants from Love Bonito as well, but decided to get the Pattre Pants too cause I can't resist the houndstooth prints and plus, the Zachery Pants were a little loose on me (such that I can only wear it with the tie sash). XS fits me nicely at my high-waist and I'm a usual 12" (: The pants carry off a very clean-cut look, and I feel that it's more formal than the Zachery pants too! The Zachery Pants are more comfortable though I feel, as the ribbon sash can be adjusted to fit your waist (like e.g., after a heavier meal etc)! (: Oh and one more thing to note is that, the houndstooth prints on the Pattre Pants are bigger than the ones on the Zachery Pants (: It was difficult for me to decide if I should keep Zachery or Pattre but I decided to keep Pattre in the end for the fit (:
Summur & Co Anika Satchel in Red from Chickisslove
I've got to share this buy with everyone because I got it at a really good deal from Chickisslove.com! (: Chickisslove is kinda like this online marketplace, where they have items from various different blogshops. And sometimes, they have these 24 hour flash sales where items go for like crazy prices! (: I was really lucky to get this bag for only $15! And they have free normal mailing too! The satchel is made of a good quality PU leather, and is surprisingly roomy to fit in lots of items.(: It comes with a long sling as well to be able to carry it as a crossbody bag too! However, one thing to note is that the hand carry handle is sewn on to the bag, hence, it's advisable to carry it that way only when your bag isn't too heavy! Overall, I think that it was a really good buy and I'm loving the bright red hue on this bag! (:
Oh yes, and the skirt in the background is the Cloud Nine Tulle Midi Skirt in Black from Aforarcade (: !
Love Bonito's Clarisse Dress in Navy, XS
The Clarrise Dress caught my eye at the preview for it's mesh panel details at the front and the uneven curved hems! (: It can be worn either with a belt for a cinched waist or without for a shift/loose dress look! (: It's a hassle-free dress to throw on for busy days where you don't know what to wear and it can be easily styled with some statement necklace pieces as well! Material-wise, it's made of a smooth chiffon and polyester which is pretty lightweight and cooling for Singapore's weather (: However, I must say that my piece was shorter than the measurements stated on the website though. The front portion measures about 31" to the longest part of the rounded hem and about 30" to the shortest part of the front hem (at the sides). Not too sure if mine was the only piece which measures shorter though ): Do lmk if your piece measures shorter as well!
Thanks for reading! (:
They said they mailed out my parcel on 27 feb but i still have not receive anything. Dropped them an email n no one reply :(
I have bought richelle romper from LB, realised the romper was shrank after one washed. The length was shorten and makes the lining "visible" by half inch. Does anyone face the same problem? Was it weird to wear out like this?
Not a new collection from LB but I thought of sharing since they are still available at site! :)
Rodella Maxi in Red (S) from Love, Bonito
Necklace from The Dancing Jewels
The maxi is definitely too long for a shortie me and I altered the length. I really love how luxe the material of this piece is and for the awesome flattering cut! Definitely worth the $45. I tried this at the store sometime back and fell in love with the piece that I bought back in 2 colours. To be honest I wouldn't pay for such a simple design online if I didn't go to the store but I guess that only shows that if the price is rather expensive for LB that SHOULD means that the material is good? :P Hehe. I tried XS as well and it fits me well too but slightly snug at waist so I went for S instead!
Aubrey Dress in White (S) from Love, Bonito
I wanted to get this piece when they first launched it but I was too slow. So happy that they restocked this piece! Hesitated between this and grey but chose white in the end. Cut it also flattering. Slightly loose at waist for me but since I'm rather in between size for LB, I think XS will be snug at waist so I stick to my usual size. One thing I don't like about this piece is the back zip is only halfway (????) and there isn't any side zip for easy wearing. In order to wear this piece you need to wear like how you would wear a t-shirt to don up from head. I think they can improvised the zip portion cos it will only make the waist elastic band to be looser from the way we wear. No lining for this but made of thick cotton so it's not sheer for my piece. A classic and fuss free piece though, so I guess I will keep it. Remember to cleanse your make up first before you don or take out this piece too else your make up will stain the dress! Just in case you want to return or sell this piece! :)

The Tinsel Rack's Taffy Midi Skirt in Black (M)
Got this skirt wayy before CNY and finally managed to take a decent photo of it !
I love the fact that midi skirts are SUPER in trend right now.
I knew TTR was going to come out with a midi skirt (6th sense) soon and was super super happy when it was previewed !
Had a hard time(as usual) deciding which colour i wanted, i was torn between cobalt and black.
Ended up with Black.
The skirt is of a heavyweight material, very structured. Def. worth to be a "premium" piece.
I love the pleated folds on the skirt makes it extra cute !
Oh, not forgetting that the skirt has POCKETS. (plus point !!)
The skirt is inner lined too.
The skirt is pretty poofy rather than flow-y !
It stops after my knees, perfect length for me.
I think it is alterable for those who are more petite!
Midi skirts are def. one of my favourite skirts right now.
I will urge those who are really tempted to get this.
NO REGRETS !
I think slots for the backorders are filling fast ! Better join before your size runs out !
Yup, that sums up my review of the skirt ! Hope it helps !
I'm standing 1.59m, UK8 for tops, UK8/10 for bottoms.

Aforarcade Tuxedo Top in Electric Blue, S (Unlaunch)
Thought this review might help those who are considering to get this top from the launch tonight. The top in real life is really cobalt blue, slightly richer than the one in the stock pics. Material is good and the top is lined. Comes in white, yellow and coral as well. The top comes with a back zip and is relatively easy to wear. Because the zip is so long, there isn't a need to wear it top down. You can wear it bottom up as well. The ptp of 16" is slight loose for me, but I don't see a huge problem with it because its meant to be slightly flawy. For those who are usually in between sizes, you may consider sizing down. The top is not sheer and I feel that it is nice to wear tuck in or out because it has a nice high low bottom hem. Retails for 35 at kissjane. So I guess it will probably retail about 28-29 on site. Best of luck to those catching the launch today! Happy Sunday.

For reference: UK6
I saw this maxi on AforArcade and I loved the open back, it was a little pricey at $39.50 but worth it IMO. The colour is a little of a brighter yellow than seen online. The material is slightly sheer so nude undergarments are advised. I bought a size M and the PTP and waist is just right for me, the cutting is very flattering too. The length fits me perfectly if I wear sandals, but not so much if I were to wear heels.
I'm 168cm, US 6 for reference.
Because the colour is brighter than I'd like, I'm selling it off, do contact me at helen.lee0206(@)gmail(dot)com if you're interested!
LB Sascha Skirt in Black, M
Elska Luna Lace Top in Green, 1 size
ASOS Vila Maxi Bodycon, XS/S-UK8
Happy Sunday! For reference I'm UK6, EUR34, 168cm.
Love Bonito Taflin top (Forest, size S)
Backorders open for this top. It is a basic top to have and can be matched easily with most bottoms. Love the pleated collar of the top. The material is not stretchable and this fits me with allowance at PTP and waist. I do think it is best to stick to your usual size as the arm hole might be too tight if you were to down-size.
E'toile Dress (Violet size S, Fuschia size XS)
Tried this at LB pop-up store and I can't decide which color to get. The dress is really heavy probably due to the amount of material used and the gold zip at the bottom of the dress. I love the "pongness" of the dress!! Makes me want to spin and swirl ^.^ The mesh area is delicate, handwashing is recommended for this. The material is really stretchable and I can fit both XS and S. I would recommend to size-down as the dress looks much better with a tight fit at the waist.
Judith Dress (Black, size M)
Got this dress from a lovely reseller. No regrets getting this dress!! Love the cut and fit and I wore it out the next day after receiving the dress. The dress hugs my curve nicely and slit is not too revealing. The embossed cotton material is slightly stretchable. Fits me nicely at PTP with slight allowance at the waist and hips. Definitely a keeper for me and I do see myself wearing this very often.
I carted out the Sweet Dessert Lace Cropped Top in mint. I've always think that this lace crop top is really sweet but I've difficult matching them though haha! I can't really decide the color but ended up with a pastel mint color instead since I hardly have clothes in this color. I've chose size M instead of size S because my PTP aren't that small and I'm afraid S will be too tight for me. Size M is just nice for me with a little allowance at the armpit area, but loose at the waist area. :) Overall it's a comfy piece!
I've also carted out the Closet Pleat Around Skirt in blue because I find the blue color very nice and hardly seen :) By taking black will be a safer choice and easier to match bottom, but I opted for something different this time. I chose the size M too instead of size S because I'm afraid the skirt will be too short for me. So to play safe I get the M. It's quite loose for me but they have the adjustable drawstring ribbon so you can control how tight/loose you want it to be. A very sweet skirt but ironing will be quite troublesome!
No idea if my mint top and blue bottom matches each other anot? What do you all think? I opted for both pastels color so they can compliment each other and not a big contrast instead.
