TaoBao Haul & Review Part 1 & Updates

Hi guys! I know I haven't posted for a while, but I've been really busy with school and work (ok and maybe playing League too...)

Last month, my parents went back to China for a month so I was living by myself. ;^; so lonely.. 
Anyway, I asked my parents to buy me things on TaoBao so they can bring it back!
For those who don't know what TaoBao is, it's like the Chinese Aliexpress/Alibaba/eBay. They only ship in China, but there are TaoBao buying services who will help you get your items to where you are. TaoBao has a larger selection compared to eBay in my opinion and for a cheaper price.
I actually bought a lot of things, but so far I'm just going to show you what I bought in clothing. Enjoy!

Item: Black Peacoat
Price: 80RMB (~14CAD)

Review: I actually really like this jacket! It looks identical to the image shown. The hood is a little big but non the less it's very warm and feminine. The buttons are a little weird looking, but it's not a huge problem. I wear this every day to school. Overall I'm very pleased with the product.

Item: Jean Jacket
Price: 82RMB (~14CAD)

Review: I really like this jacket too! It's casual and I think it's great for days when it's not too chilly (guess I won't be wearing it too often now) However the problems I had with this jacket was
1. I had to cut the button openings. See how the breast pockets don't have the buttons through them? It's because I got lazy and didn't want to cut the opening for them haha.
2. The buttons are really... noisy.
3. If you look closely to the stock image, there are side pockets! The actual jacket doesn't have it :(

Item: Loose cream cardigan
Price: 75RMB (~13CAD)

Review: This was a more disappointing product. The quality isn't the best, I expected it to be a lot thicker or softer. The sleeves are also shorter than I expected. I wouldn't recommend this item personally. The stock image looked so good though. :( 

For the next part(s) I'll also do a review on the bags, shoes and miscellaneous things I got! Stay tuned frends!

    1. T____T nooo, it's a disappointment. Not sure how to wear it yet

  2. cute coat!

  3. Awesome! I really like what you've purchased. Packaging seems to be thoughtful.

    I would vouch for and they don't charge a service fee if you're in Australia.
