This dress (cardigan is model's own- since model has fat arms) is from Little White Crane. If i'm not mistaken, I bought it for around RM50 including postage a few months back. And here's a pic on their site, worn by (real) model.
Pic pulled from LWC, of coz.
Well, this is one of the nicer items i've bought online (excluding my fren's Pearly's items of coz, since she goes the extra mile for her customers and purchases from her are considered safebets compared with other blogs. haha. Pearly, can i have my commission now pls! :-)))
For a successful shopping trip online, the most basic requirement is to know your own vital stats, (actual, as in right now, NOT the make believe, after diet). While some other blogs just give very general description -like , fits sizes S-M. Some blogs give a comprehensive description of the pc of clothing- length, bust, waist and butt circumfrences, best fits sizes, and material. (for eg - for the pc i'm wearing - Length : 34" (86cm) Waist : up to 29" Hip: up to 37" (Fits UK6-UK10) ) I'm a size 10 currently, so yeah, i'm maxxing it out..hhaha..
And with other remarks such as "Remarks: Polka dot dual tone dress with hidden side zip and comes with a camel brown skinny belt (Quality cotton, soft and comfy) "
And a lot of times, its trial and error. I would say, perhaps 80% of the pcs bought are exactly like how i thought it would turn out, and fits nicely. Others unfortunate items i just pass along to skinner ppl (my sis-unfair!) who can just about wear anything. Since items are not expensive, and its gd fun (and blardy addictive!) shopping online, i dont exactly mind. And i betcha my sis isnt complaining too! :-) And for those blogs who is overpriced and underqualified (i mean bad quality larr), very simply, i just dont return..
As for customer service, 98% of the time, the sellers are efficient and friendly. There was only 1 blog which was rude to me and selling overpriced items too, so that's a buh bye.. (avoid Melody Fashion!)
Okay, showing you some other items that i've bought online..
This pair of shoes belong to Annie, we ordered a pair each from Milktee. This is a blog that i've been returning to, their items are not exp and quality is gd. Nice pictures and easy layout too!
And this is my pair, i have to say, Annie's pair looks much nicer.. and my pair is a tad too tight on me too, i've got very picky and blister-prone feet! :-((
Okay, thats all for now...Hope to have a fruitful shopping trip in Taiwan!!

We were supposed to go to Beijing but our tour got canceled due to insufficient number of travellers, and since its too late to apply for a visa to China, we're heading to Taiwan instead. Leaving on the 13th, bought our air tics yesterday and bought our ground arrangement today.... With my mom in tow and us having the experience of a failed independent travel to Eastern Europe some years ago, its better to have the comfort and convenience of a guided tour. I know some ppl hate it, being herded up and down the bus like a brace of ducks (i googled collective nouns of ducks)..i'm too lazy to be doing independent travel nowadays..unless its with the right ppl (ie- my buddy who has the patience of a saint!) as i can be such a pain the arse while traveling...its true, the korean girl who witnessed my Jekyl and Hyde transformation the moment the train left Waterloo station can vouch for it! But as i said, with age and wisdom on my side, i'll conquer the Jekyl (or isit Hyde?) in me!
In the meantime, more pics from Singapore!
Pic taken during our river cruise.
And their window display.. despite my many references to elll veee, i dont own even one of their items and i'm not particularly crazy for one..its more like, ohh ell vee, how nice, and move on..i dont drool over their bags nor do i lust after louis.. having said that, don't think that i wouldnt want your old ellll veee bags should you decide that you've had enough fun with yours and would like to throw one my way...pls do!!
my reflection in one of the many glossy shiny slimming mirrors there ...
Okay, the next pic's supposed to come after this..but i'm lazy to swap...so here's the bottom part with water....
