TaoBao Haul & Review Part 2


Hi guys, I'm back with part 2 of my taobao haul! This one will be the review of the bags I got. ^___^ I'll be posting ones of the shoes and miscellaneous things I also got in the future, so stay tuned.


Item: Maroon 'medical' style bag
Price: 62 RMB (~$11 CAD)

Review: I'm really happy with this bag, however I don't go out enough to use it. :( #nolife The colour is beautiful and I love how it compliments the gold hardware (I prefer gold over silver). It's sturdy and came out just like the stock image. Also, there are lots of compartments inside to put your stuff in. :)

Item: Black shoulder/messenger bag
Price: 39 RMB (~$7CAD)

Review: One of the items I was mostly anticipating for. I wanted it for school so I wouldn't have to use my Michael Kors tote so much. What I liked about it was
1. the straps are thick
2. it's pleather instead of patent.
3. can convert to over the body bag
My problem with it however is the hardware. The metals are very cheap (and it's silver T___T). The hook for the cross body strap is VERY weak. I wore it as a cross body once and the hook, unhooked...??? The zipper isn't that pretty either but that's not too big of a problem. But hey, it's only $7.

Item: Zip clutch

LE GASP COOLEST CLASP EVER. ITS OP

Review: I really like this bag! It's great for a night out and the clasp make sure no one goes sneaky sneaky into your purse. It's not too small or too big and has credit card slots inside. Overall, this is a great bag and I really recommend it to people who don't want to carry a large bag with them when they go out.

  1. Hahahahaha "LE GASP COOLEST CLASP EVER." I LOL-ed so much reading this. Although I have to admit that the clasp thing is really smart :P The first maroon bag is really pretty! I love it!.

  4. I love the wine red bag & the black clutch <3 both have a very classy feel to them :D
    Haven't had a chance to purchase with Taobao yet i guess both the reason of laziness and insecurity of the agents. Do you recommend any agents to purchase with taobao??
