What you buying/waiting on gulls?
I've ordered the first two and am hoping their measurements are accurate(length wise), and am putting off buying the others so I don't get ali-regret if they all turn out crap. I really want to dress like a victorian children's book character this summer though.
What for specifically? They're pretty common and if you just search for, say, cloud dress, you'll find them at different prices from different sellers. My method is to add a heap to my cart and keep an eye on prices going on sale %s.
sorry if this is the wrong place to ask, but has anyone seen this on ali (or ebay i guess)? Its a bit pricier than im willing to pay without know what the quality will be, and the site seems to just sell cheapish china-made stuff anyway, so im hoping someone might have seen it elsewhere!
Sadly I wouldn't really recommend the shell bra. I was excited to receive it, but its not as nice as the picture. (sorry but my phone is R.I.P so I can't take a photo for you). Instead of having a clasp at the back it's a tie, and in the photo the straps look (to me) as if they are like bra straps, but they are a halterneck tie. There is barely any curve to the shell cups so unless you are quite flat it probably won't fit well (I am a uk 32C and it barely covers me, I definitely wouldn't trust it to swim in!). Overall I guess it's just not as good quality as it looks in the photo. this is the one I got:
The black top I really like! It's a bit shorter than it looks in some of the photos, and it fits me snugly but not too tight (I'm uk dress size 8). Its pretty soft and nice, I've had other things that are uncomfortable stiff material and dont lose that 'cheap' smell, but this isnt like that. However, it came with some of the side seams a bit fraying/undone. I only messaged them about that just now and haven't had a response, so I can't vouch for what will happen with that. It's this one:
I got one of my housemates to take a picture haha, its not great quality but hopefully youll be able to see the differences!
No worries! Maybe if you ordered it from a different seller it might be different? Perhaps message them and ask first
About 3 1/2 weeks, im in the UK so that might be different from where you are
Nail polish (can't actully remember which colour i ordered, it was one of the glittery ones though)
Got these in the mail a few days back, and they are such a joy! Comfy and cute.
but the seller isn't selling it any more, maybe you can find another listing? or similar from the seller?
Here you go! They're pretty nice, a few bits of excess rubber at the sides where they were cut, but they came off easily, and the lines of the details are all pretty clean. The yellow of his tummy is slightly grey at the sides where it is a bit mixed with his fur. The scribble in the background is what the pen writes like, I like it. Its not scratchy like some cheap pens are.
I would check measurements more than relying on the sizes. Different shops have different ideas of S-L. Most shops I come across for clothes has a cm size chart in their listing so check them out.
I went looking through pages of skull dresses on ali, and I only found things at the same price or way higher. there's a slightly frumpier looking one with the same fabric but different cut, and maybe one or two of the same, but they're all pretty expensive.
searched on taobao and it's slightly cheaper there.
Would anyone be willing to help me find this at a cheaper price? The whole store is full of tons of cute clothes with insane markups.
Dropped pic, my bad.
Had my first aliexpress order.
Ordered 3 items, was told one was out of stock in the colour I ordered, I was told to open a dispute to get a refund for it once the package arrives.
Package arrives, I get 1 of the three items I ordered, 1 that was the same item that was out of stock but in a different colour, and 1 wasn't included at all. I open a dispute including photos of what I received asking for a refund on the item I didn't receive at all and that I would accept receiving the wrong colour of the item they had out of stock, but I definitely want a refund on the item I didn't receive. Seller rejects my dispute and tells me the value of the item that was out of stock.
That's not what I requested the refund on????
First impressions of this place aren't good ones...
Some anon in the previous thread asked for a review of this schoolgirl bag
I just got it, and it seems pretty nice. It's like the pictures, has a lot of space and compartments to put stuff, even a thermal pocket to put a drink or a bottle of water.
The material is as you would expect, fake leather. I have no problems with it right now, but I have a feeling it will rip with use...
I'm not going to post pictures, I found a video review on youtube of an eBay Candy Sugar knockoff like the one I got and it's exactly the same:
Would anyone happen to have a link to some of the Baby lumiere shoe replicas on AE? It would be greatly appreciated!
diff anon so I don't know the link for the original socks, but sock stores:
the markup on those isn't awful given that they all include "free" shipping as part of the price. I tried to find that shirt, only found it elsewhere for double the price and with $10 shipping. you might have to go to taobao if you want anything cheaper.
searched "lolita heels" and they were on the first page. idk if you can find them for cheaper, but at least these have reviews.
Love and hate these shirts. I like the 'sweets for the sweet' one though
I really like this but the seller only has 9 reviews, do you think i should just go for it?
I just checked and the dress is back in stock
see above and >>8646526
Careful with those Rilakkuma boxes, anon.
When mine got to me in the mail they were all dented inwards because of poor packaging and flimsy plastic. Probably my sellers fault for not packaging them well but, you know, still be careful because they are a little flimsy~
Tacky as hell but exactly what I was looking for: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Antique-Silver-Plated-Alloy-Enamel-Flower-Fleur-De-Lis-Pendants-Purple-73x45x4mm-Hole-6X9mm/32251206016.html
Got this white tshirt with black polka dots today http://www.aliexpress.com/item/2015-Women-s-Summer-T-Shirt-Clothes-Shirt-O-neck-Polka-Dotted-Short-Tops-Free-Shipping/32466833905.html size M fit my 35" / 91cm bust. It's see through with a black bra but will be fine with skin colour. I'd get an L if I was buying again, but for a AUD$6 understated kawaii tshirt, it's great.
I'm waiting on a wefting needle and some colored and feather false eyelashes
Also I love looking through shops to see what they carry. Today I found a shop that carries mostly fishing supplies and gay pride buttons
Speaking of which does anyone know the term to use to find those metal button pins?? From Japanese it translates to can badge but this is a Chinese site so that term didn't bring up many results
Some things to keep in mind when buying from Aliexpress:
It is not all one seller. It is like eBay or taobao where there are several different sellers with different feedback scores
Almost anything you buy on there will not be authentic. There are lots of replicas
Buying makeup, chemical products, sex toys, lighters, or electronics is strongly advised against as there is no regulations in place for those. (False eyelashes are ok as they dont resllt touch your skin) Be smart about what you purchase.
The quality is not likely to be great on these things. You get what you pay for.
I have had luck buying unprocessed human hair. Be wary of buying very long hair though, as the longer it is, the more brittle the ends are
This is a good place to buy clothes that would normally only be available on taobao and it's usually cheaper than paying ridiculous storenvy markups. However if you plan to buy a lot, it may just be cheaper to buy directly from taobao rather than going through resellers on Aliexpress. So if you really only want a few items are are willing to pay the markup in exchange for free shipping, this is a good place to buy
Be wary of jewelry. It possibly could have lead in it and likely has nickel. The finish will probably rub off quickly so coating it in a jewelry protecting spray is recommended
Glass items may break during shipping, but are generally safe to buy as lead glass is heavy and expensive to make and the chances of you getting it are extremely low
Basically, use your common sense
I found a couple cute things that might interest someone looking for mori bags or clothes.
Does anyone know how I can find those acrylic rectangular pins that have words on them (WITCH, GIRL, etc.)? Also looking for the t-shirt that has a manga panel with what looks like Kaneda from Akira yelling. It might be someone else if I'm misremembering.
I havent received it yet, but i think you just use it like normal polish and it reacts to your body heat (so like the bit actually against the nail bed/flesh of your finger which is warmer will be different to the tip thats not getting the body heat). Idk if my nails are long enough to get the effect properly, or if it even works though!
Im excited for it to arrive! ill do a review here when it comes, but im worried that it wont work because 1: it was like the cheapest one going, and 2: my hands are permanently freezing haha
My latest order (sorry, too lazy to make pic)
Super excited like always, hope everything fits, already want to buy more things >.>
It's super dangerous. My friend's cousin's teacher used it once and they took her credit card info and smuggled drugs in her bag and now she's in jail in china a she is now a communist!!
idk why this seller thought including THIS as an example photo was a good idea but anywayyyy
Not sure if they're resellers, but I've bought three things from them, a jacket which was broken and awful quality, two semesters, one was too small and one was really good
I think its sort of a gamble. Ypu might aswell buy from aliexpress
Everyone who was interested in the nail polish:
It arrived today in a bubblewrap pocket envelope thing and a small layer of bubblewrap around the bottle, but it was broken. It's done the thing where the glass neck snaps off inside the plastic top thing. If you order something like this be careful when you take it out of the packaging, I got some on my clothes (but luckily just some old pyjamas).
I thought id try it out before throwing it away. Presumably because it is open due to the neck snapping off, its a bit gummy so doesnt paint very easily. I painted my nails yesterday so decided to put it on a false nail instead (the nail has like a lace pattern on it, so thats what you can see through the polish). It seems to take a very long time to dry, its been about 15 mins and its still wet to the extent that if i touch it a bit will go on my finger. However, the colour change does work! The dark purple is what it is like cold, and the pink is when i was running it under warm water.
So basically: bottle broke in post, a bit gummy (probably because of the break), and takes a long time to dry. The colour change does work, however. In the interests of fairness, it might be better if it comes sealed.
sorrry for the bad quality of the photo
Ha, it actually works where it stained the nail brush that i was using to scrub it off of my hands! (My nails are also purple but thats not the paint from ali, to be clear)
I feel like we talk about this every other thread at least, but I think it's a bit harder on AE because there are quite a few sellers that sell a little of everything, as opposed to having shops that cater to particular fashion substyles and whatnot. the only stores I can think of off the top of my head that stick to a particular style/item would be home goods, socks, mori, and the lolita shops.
if people want to dump lists of their favorite shops, I can try throwing something together on a google doc.
have you tried searching something like "harajuku pin"?
i needed some casual clothes
sorry im not very kawaii, seagulls
When ordering shoes on ali, are the cm measurements usually correct? like if it says 20cm, is it usually actually 20cm or do they just post a random table of measurements theyve gotten from elsewhere?
I've bought #3 from the same listing in a different color, and it was a+. Really nice material, I wear it to work frequently.
Ordered a handful of things, and a few came in yesterday. I finished the transactions, gave all positive reviews, etc. However one of the ones I just finished now says "Fund processing". Hasn't happened before, so what do i have going on here?
Just made this order, anyone interested in reviews when it starts coming in?
Does anyone know where I can buy a sheer overdress?
Does anyone have Larme-style accessories in their wishlists to share?
The problem is that on taobao, if you order like one thing from a store and its good, the rest is probably gonna be good too, while on aliexpress you dont really know that since most of the stuff they sell come from taobao, but from different stores. So one aliexpress store can sell like 10 good dresses from one good taobao store, and then the rest can be complete shit
So just because you've ordered some good things from a store still doesn't mean everything is good.
Also, there are sooooo many stores on Aliexpress, and most of them sell decent quality stuff. I've ordered from probably over 60 stores over the years and all the items I got were good. You can't possibly list all of those store just because of that
Lastly, I don't really see why a spreadsheet is needed for Aliexpress since it so easy to navigate compared to taobao. If you're scared to get bad items, just check for good feedback, or order from some other site.
http://www.aliexpress.com/item/AB731-SWEET-CUTE-GIRL-BLUE-plaid-Lacework-Cotton-Fabric-Shopper-Tote-Bag-HANDBAG-FREE-SHIPPING/32348341991.html?spm=2114.01020208.3.11.enL4av&ws_ab_test=201556_8,201527_3_3_2_1_4_71_72_73_74_75,201560_9 Plaid ruffle-y bag, would be good for larme or cck
Pink has arrived, it's all shipped, I can take photos and whatnot of what I have.
I found a couple cute earrings, maybe they could work?
I want to buy one of these schoolgirl skirts, the pink one. How is the fabric, sizing (hoping isn't too thin for winter)?The reviews seem pretty positive.
How is the quality of this skirt?Fabric quality?I want it in pink or lavender.
The batcat shirt arrived. Its really nice, would definitely recommend it! I got a M which fits me (UK 8-10) nicely. I like the length of the sleeves (they dont show the armpits, i hate when short sleeved tops show armpits), the material is nice and soft and not see through. Didnt smell factoryish when it came. The picture is printed on, ive not put it through he wash yet but it doesnt look like it would peel off.
I really love it!
Aw thats sad, i think it was probably the bad packing. The plastic isnt damaged on mine but the fae stickers/transfers or whatever are a bit scratched. For the price im not bothered though, theyre good for just chucking bits and bobs like makeup in when i cant be bothered to tidy properly
Already posted with a review further up if you want, but here you go!
Couple of wigs and 40 pairs of false lashes. And an anti-static comb. Only 30 canadian dollarinos.
Yes it is, and they're all dirt cheap. Using it for my wigs, too.
Pretty bad. I don't care because it's a present for a friend and it's going to be, y'know, on top of her head, and she's pretty tall so I doubt anyone will see it. But it is embarrassing.
I found some cute hats.
it means the postal workers handling your package fucked up
one of my orders got sent back to the warehouse but the seller just sent it again and I got it maybe a week later than expected
i have both those shops bookmarked but I really don't want to comb through both to find that dress in the top right link please
Only thing is that it doesn't come with batteries which it says in the description. It hasn't come in yet but when it does I'll review it.
Almost got these:
I know some of you like engrish
where can I find this type of stuff?
Kind of related to this, I went to Pride this year and there were people with bags of glitter that they were using as body decoration, like putting it on people in the street etc, but it was like really dense. Like, they put a stripe of it on and you couldnt see the persons skin through it, if that makes sense? Does anyone know what that is/where i can get it?
Uhh I'm not 100% sure, sorry, I was quite drunk by that point. I was assuming that it would be a powder to achieve the level of coverage that it did, like something quite fine so that the skin didnt show (sorry if none of this makes sense).
No clue what they attached it with, from what I saw it was just put straight on the skin but i definitely could have missed them applying something first.
thanks for he help! Ill look into the pearl mica
Mica is tiny tiny particles and kind of sticks, and a lot of glitter is static and sticks, otherwise you can use hairspray on your skin to get some temporary adhesion, you could also use a primer.
Why do so many aliexpress stores sell adult sex toys (vibrators) right next to their women's clothing and jewelry?
Not correct at all. The first letter is hiragana (bo) the second two are katakana (e-ka) and the last one is 姐, which is older sister but I don't see that kanji used a whole lot?
In the end, it's actually complete gibberish. There isn't really a direct "fuck off!" in Japanese as far as I know (but I'm not an expert or anything). うぜんだよ (uzendayo) is probably the closest?
I don't think this was mentioned yet in the thread, but it looks like you can now share your wish lists so woot.
I recently got these things in the mail as well..
I really don't know what I was expecting, I just wanted to try out a simple bra to help tuck my big bust in so things like my lolita dresses fit nicer, its just like the picture, but its very stretchy/elasticity, so it'll fit different types, but no support or minimizing for bigger breasts like mine. (I'm 34D)
So if anyone has an recommendations for minimizer bras/sports bras/whatever, please let me know.
Really cute, works, and has weight to it. (Also it seemed to be shipped from the Netherlands, so thats also cute, getting different languages in my mail)
I've noticed other stores I follow have started carrying these pocket watches (same main frame design/body, different front designs/fandom stuff) for more money.
Pretty much a simple cheap pendant necklace, and looks likes the pictures, would recommend if you want a simple cheap pendant necklace.
Got 2 of theses for my socks, again pretty much simple cheap storage, they look nice well made (for cheap China things).
Got the star and crown. Super cute, seems sturdy and bigger then I expected, which is cool.
Still waiting on a few more hair accessories.
I started a dispute for something, and it now says:
"If the seller does not respond by 4 calendar days 23 hour 59 minute 34 second , the dispute will be closed in your proposal"
by 'in your proposal' do they mean in my favour?
Um, those second two are in the katakana alphabet, but they're also kanji.
工 (meaning craft/construction). For example, it is in the word for engineer - 工学者 (こうがくしゃ) When I look it up on jisho.org, it says katakana "e" radical, but it looks like a full-width character whereas "e" looks like it's half-width, meaning they could be two separate characters. idk
However, 力 is chikara- power. Even the weebiest of weebs should know this..
The shirt is nonsensical as far as I can tell, just wanted to point it out in case you weren't aware.
They aren't also kanji. Katakana are katakana and kanji are kanji. Katakana are basically just radicals extracted from kanji, but even though they have the same form, they have distinct meanings, usually distinguishable by their use. Look at 工 and エ for example. Or 力 and カ. There are clear differences in their rendition. It has very much sense.
I just said that. That's why I mentioned the difference between the full/half-widths. Of course they have different readings/meanings.
Previous anon implied/assumed they were katakana when they could have very well been kanji. I can't tell which from the font on the shirt.
Anyone know anything about this dress? Is it a Taobao reseller or DOL?
I don't go or post here, but I heard that you have threads about Aliexpress on here, and I recently bought some stuff on it.
Does anyone have any experience with this tracking site?
If so, what does "the end 4 days" mean for the status of the shipment? It's been like that for about two weeks now.
Not that anon, but the anon who ordered it a few threads back (I'm assuming this anon ordered the one I linked)
I wouldn't recommend it
The arms of the shirt are super long and wide and just look weird. The shirt itself is way super short
Also really small over the chest so unless you're like flat it's gonna look really weird
You just gotta learn what search terms to use
Try things like Japanese, kawaii, harajuku, mori, bobon, lizlisa, lolita (even if you're not looking for lolita, some stores write lolita in the description) etc.
If you find a cute dress, try looking in that store because stores usually sell pretty similar clothes
Honestly though, you can't just ask for "cute dresses", because cute can be so many different styles, and there's thousands of "cute" dresses on aliexpress.
where can I find some sailor style dresses like this in black? I can only really find white and blue.
here it is in white
you could search the image to find more listings, I've seen a bunch.
good search keywords for dresses like this are sailor and navy/naval.
It obviously depends on where you live, what kind of item it is and the shipping method the seller chooses
Some times orders I've made have been delivered in like a week, and sometimes it takes months.
You can also pay for more expensive shipping to get it to arrive sooner if you're in a hurry, but that's often quite expensive
I'd recommend buying it now, since you never really now
Better safe then sorry
I don't think there's a lot of that, since they're most popular in white or navy. You could always get a black dress and make a collar to sew on if you're a bit crafty.
Here's some I found that's sailor:ish:
Attached a tut for sailor collar in case you're interested
Good luck anon!
Does anyone know where to get these collars? I've tried looking for it but all of them were studded with diamonds and other stuff.
any recommendations for kigurumis? Is ebay better than ali? Im looking to get some for my nieces and nephew for xmas
Alright, it just arrived.
Overall I'm pleased. The material isn't see-through but it's definitely stretchy and easily accommodates a 95cm bust. The Milky print is above the bottom of the shirt, but I tuck my tees in so that doesn't lower my opinion. I will say that the sleeves are awkwardly long and the armpit fit is a bit off, but it's still better than what I expected honestly. The printing is clean and not faded. On a hanger it looks a bit shiny, but it isn't that noticeable.
Hat for halloween, shoes to fill wardrobe, crafting stuff.
Got more things in..
Got a few of theses and they're pretty good, I want to get every color now.
Got a heart and star. Heart was perfect, star biscuit was a bit more of a "toasty" hue. (Had that, oh god are these real biscuits? as mentioned in another thread, but nope, just simple cabochons) Still love them though.
For this order >>8662316 Comb and lashes should be arriving this week. Purple wig next week, maybe. I don't think the brown one will be here until mid November.
Went and ordered 500 pieces of fake nails. Enough to do your nails 50 times. Just 3 dollars. Despite >>8656100 's bad post experience, I decided to get some polish too because I like both of these colours and could use them in a future coord.
I used to have such good nails, but some shitty medication I'm taking makes them more brittle. I'm supposed to take some other vitamins and use a special coating to make them better, but it'll be a while before they shape up. I definitely need these in the mean time.
Are those actual nails, or just tips? I've seen some listings that where titled: "tips" and where actual nails and reverse too.
Also if anyone else know some nice extremely long nails, please let me know!
That was me who had the bad experience with them. If your try the polish on your nail/already attached false nails make sure you do it at a time when you have a long time spare as mine didnt seem to ever dry (even 24 hours later!). hopefully ours will work better than mine did!
not original anon but I managed to track down the links for most of the dresses
Does anyone know if this scarf print is a replica, or is it original?
it's funny you say that because my optometrist is actually interested in AE and off brand lenses he actually wants me to come in and let him see how they are when and if I buy some. They'd obviously be throwaway lenses.
If your optometrist is so interested he should just get them himself.
I was gonna advice against it so you don't go blind, but you sound like a total douche, so go ahead, order some lenses that are possibly made of toxic materials soaked in toxic fluids and stick them into the most sensitive parts of your body!
Purple indicates its soon to arrive, pink indicates just ordered.
Anyone want links/reviews?
Mine is from xstarryco, it took 20 days to actually be shipped, and I'm collecting it tomorrow so ill review them then!
It's listing has been removed, but it should have another in that store.
Thank you so much, you inadvertently helped me remember the name of the wig shop that I loved the wigs on - Soft Degree! Thank you!
I'm currently looking for a wig like... http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Soft-Degree-Hair-Wig-Short-Hair-Curl/1197605_1759267422.html
However in a gunmetal or lighter grey - anyone know?
I have that bag in pink and I love it. It's a little small, can fit a wallet, cell phone, a few misc objects,and that's it, but its super cute and I can received so many compliments on it.
No worries! And thank you
I'm currently looking for grandma-kei/ lolita items - I tend to mix them up into my everyday wear. I'm a old book collector so like book prints on my dresses - on the hunt for such items. I just wish more taobao sellers started using AliExpress - I dont mind paying a bit extra to not have to go through a middleman
Also, anyone seen any good classical capes?
It's decent. Feels very sturdy, a little hard to open and close at first. The bit in the chain is kinda flimsy and the connecting ends broke apartbut I just hotglued it back together and its fine now. As for smells, I didn't smell anything but my nose doesn't work very good anyway. Overall I'd say its the same quality you'd get at target or any other store.
oh ok so its decent quality
probably gonna get that
thanks for the review
also posting links to cute home/desk stuff
Oh gosh. My 40 lashes came in, and they are so lovely!
i thought this was a cute trinket box but it turned out to be an herb grinder
maybe some stoner gull will like it
Okay apparently "larme" isnt a common search term yet.....
doubt it ever will be, honestly. we'll probably just have to sift through combinations of retro, elegant, vintage, princess, kawaii, etc etc.
also, you can now start accumulating coins that can be traded in for coupons for 11/11, so get on it, gulls!
Has anyone bought some nanchatte seifukus from aliexpress? If yes then which ones have you guys bought? I'm having a hard time on choosing the right coordinate.
as in can you use multiple coupons for one order? not sure about that.
just check the aliexpress homepage, there's a big banner about it right now. you can play one browser game for coins, another on the mobile app, and if you get enough people to like your public wishlist you could get a $50 coupon. as the sale date approaches there will probably be a deluge of announcements about which stores/items are having big sales.
am i just dumb or are other people having trouble with the mobile app coin game?
Also we should make one of those things that explains what Aliexpress is and what to buy and not buy, when it's better to use AE and when it's better to use taobao, and maybe a spreadsheet, you know, like the taobao threads have
A long time ago several AE threads back, I got excited and tried to make an otome wishlist and then deleted it in a fit of rage when I realized that AE didn't let you share wishlists. Well now they do so I've compiled a list of fairy kei appropriate stuff, trying to avoid replicas and very marked up stuff
It's small now, links to more stuff would be appreciated
wouldn't be a bad idea if we had enough people, but it'd probably be best to try to do it around midnight when the likes reset. right now the top wishlists have like 2k likes, so it'd be tough to compete
what kind of problem with the game? I've been playing it without issues so far.
re: the spreadsheet and stuff, I tried assembling one (and haven't updated it since starting it) but people have pointed out in previous threads that not all stores produce or even buy their items from the same place, so quality may vary even within the same store. but if people really want a spreadsheet and can contribute, I guess I can add on to what I already have, which isn't much.
what could we even put in an AE sticky anyway? "use your common sense, if it's too good to be true it most likely is, look for items with lots of reviews whenever possible, buy from taobao instead if you're getting lots of stuff"?...
I ordered pic related on the 23rd of September and got shipping notification on the 29th. The seller has a 100% positive feed back but it's been a month and I still haven't received the doll, should I use their seller guarantee and ask for my money back since it's been over 30 days ?
(hoping her dress entitles me to ask this on /cgl/ and not /toy/)
Well, I would take a look at the item's processing time, and shipping time. If the processing time says 2-14 days and it shipped before the 14th day, they are ok. If the shipping time is 15-40 days, that's separate. You would add the longest possible processing time and the longest possible shipping time together and that's the length you must wait before you can get a refund. Either that or before your buyer's protection expires. Aliexpress is generally 60 days.
I can't figure out how the game works. Is it just pure chance?
I would put a list of things to NOT buy from AE in the spreadsheet.
Electronics, sex toys, cosmetics, lighters, chemical products, and to be very, very, wary of jewelry, especially anything piercing, as there is a chance it will contain lead.
And to remind people that this isn't the same as buying those products from normie stores because there are no regulations and usually very little quality on them here.
And then things generally safe to buy from AE but to remember that you usually get what you pay for such as pretty much anything made out of cloth, shorter (<12) human hair (i've bought this from AE several times with good luck), false eyelashes, glass (since lead glass is heavy and expensive its usually safe to buy glass stuff but be wary of it breaking), home decor, basically anything that won't go into your body or has electronic parts.
There's also some taobao shops that have AE storefronts (ex: infanta) we could put in the spreadsheet, and some like house of novelty with good reputations that carry cute stuff
Tends to be correct...but some shoes will run big/small depending on style and a lot of them are really quite narrow, so go a size/ size and a half up, depending on how wide your feet are. 25cm+ shoes are hard to find and wide shoes in that range are pretty much impossible to come across, but afaik smaller shoes are true to size.
this will supposedly be about $12 during the 11/11 sale, if anyone is looking for novelty purses. seems pretty small, though.
This shop sells legit Bobon21 dresses?I saw the price + aproximate shipping from a SS but it's a bit less from this AE shop.
I got my blouse the other day. It's definitely got thin sleeves. I'm fairly small all around, but if I pull my shoulders back, the fabric pulls across my bust and pulls the buttons apart.
I've gotten a few compliments on it today so far
That's what I hate about 11.11
I've seen that purse being sold for like $9 at ali, but since that store is selling it for $148-184, lowering the price to $12 seems like a steal, when you're actually paying more than you have to
It's pretty much just a rip of, you get some coupons, sure, but pretty much all of the sales are bullshit
They just make a big hype around it to get people to spend a bunch of money
small haul from house of novelty, can review and link if anyone's interested
it's actually a hand towel
It's very soft but had some random lint stuck to it when I unpackaged it
no, this was not intended for children lol. the rest of the hoodie fits fine. sleeves are long enough, zips up w/o being too tight etc. but the hood is an afterthought
I don't really mind that I can't put it over my head except it's small enough that it looks weird at even just sitting there
Sauce and measurements requested over here, too, anon! I'm a size XS ~ S but my shoulders are a bit big (probably size M) - I'm looking for a nice white blouse like that to layer with!
REVIEW TIME GULLS!
#2: Great. Really good quality, thick and cozy. Would recomment.
#3: Pretty good. A little thin, at the worst, but seems like it'll last.
#4: I was really surprised at how nice it was, especially for the price.
#5: Cute but the material is absolute shit. It's basically a one-sided foam/felt material stitched together. It looks nice at first glance, but really isn't super comfortable or warm.
#7: Pretty good! They're comfy and easy to wear, only downside is that the waistline is a bit stiff.
#8: The construction is a little weird; the wavy part in front is only on the front, not all the way around. But it's comfortable and cute, so no complaints.
My bust is 32 ½ inches
It is thin, so not a winter shirt. But I absolutely love it. One button is about to pop off, but can easily be fixed
I'm collecting coupons to use on the 11th but i haven't made an order in a while and couldn't resist getting some jewelry. All came out to under $15. Excited to get some more rings and bracelets!
anyone know where to get fake thigh-highs lined for winter? not leggings, i've only been able to find leggings so far. if anyone has good keywords that'd be good. most of the 'winter tights' i ordered are not wintery...
Really cheap mori style layering thing?
Now that I'm looking at your probably right but I made it a mission to get all my stuff from the same store so I could get it all at once so I didn't really shop around for cheaper versions.
i want to believe that will look like the photo, but the price is so low and only one person has ordered (and not left feedback. leave feedback with photos, people. please. i always do)
I see these being scalped on storenvy all the time. Check the measurements, I'm considering ordering them but I'm tall with disproportionately long legs so I'm worried they'll only come up to my knees or something
A good rule is "is it something that is normally regulated?" (ex: lead content paint, makeup, electronics, etc)
if the answer is yes, don't buy it from AE and buy it from a reputable source instead
This looks real cute. Found it on one of the current 11/11 coupon offers.
these DO exist!!!!!!
First time Aliexpress user here. On the whole, are listed garment measurements to be trusted? I know it'll vary by seller, but generally speaking. And are sellers usually pretty good about their return policies?
More specifically, anybody know of shops (or particular items, if you're feeling generous) good for a mori girl with tits? I found a few things here and there, but it seems like most items have bust measurements around 100-105cm. Anything 120-130cm would be ideal for me, but I can probably go down to 115cm.
Thanks in advance, seagulls!
not the same but related and cute:
