Taobao Haul & Pruany Review

Hi there! Sorry for relatively slower posting lately, I had my last exam yesterday and I've just been super busy with stuff. Good news, though! My Taobao order finally came in!!! It took ages cause one of the sellers took like 6 weeks for it to ship to my agent, but now it's okay cause everything is WONDERFUL! I chose to use Pruany for my agent, as I had heard good things about them and they apparently were slightly cheaper. Skip to the bottom if you want a more thorough review. :)


My Taobao order consisted of 7 items- 2 dresses, 1 skirt, 2 sweaters, 2 cardigan. I hope a few of you find this atleast mildly useful!!

I'm in love with this dress. It unfortunately took forever (6 weeks, bs) to come arrive to my agent, but I do think it was worth it. It's made a quite good material and fits me well without being too long or too short. I'm so excited to wear it out!

Very cute dress, it fits well and is quite flattering! Unfortunately it got very wrinkled on its way over. I need to steam it before I wear it out- so keep that in mind if you order from them. Also- it's not quite but dangerously close to see through, so I definitely have to wear a slip with it. Not awesome, but understandable.

I forgot to take my own pictures, but it looks exactly the same (:

Surprisingly good quality for the price! Unfortunately I don't think I'll wear it in public due to it not quite working on me. I'm 5'3 but my butt is fairly prominent in comparison to the rest of my body, so while if I had a small butt this would be short but cute, with my body the way it is it's just a bit too revealing for me (i.e. i can't bend over or go up stairs without being immodest woohoo).

Super happy with these! They're not made with the best quality materials everrr, but for the price I'm okay with that. They're cute and perfect for a lot of different looks. I can wear them over dresses or with skirts or with jeans or anything really.

Honestly really good quality for the price- I have absolutely no complaints. It looks absolutely adorable with the Liz Lisa knock off dress above, surprisingly good quality, just purrfect.

I have a couple of small complaints about this- 1) the material is almost a bit shiny? Like it has sparkles knit into it. I wasn't expecting that, but it still looks pretty nice. 2) One side of it is slightly baggier than the other, which can look a little weird if you're aware of it. Most wont be able to notice though. It is a very soft and fairly warm cardigan though, and good quality.

All in all I'm pretty delighted with my purchases. I'm really looking forward to wearing them out and about, especially with the weather warming up in Europe a bit. I'm planning on ordering some more stuff from Taobao soon, so expect another haul post in a couple of months! (:



Pruany Review
Okay- first thing is first. I went with Pruany because I read that they were cheaper than other agents. Their website isn't the best, but it works. I had some initial confusion with paying for my order, but they responded very quickly and in good English so yea. It took me a few days to realize how they respond to you- on your order there will be something that say 'message' and it just allows you to comment/ask questions/respond to stuff on each individual item. As an example, my first Liz Lisa knockoff dress took forever to come in. They let me know it would take awhile. Unfortunately they said it would take 2 weeks. Then 4 weeks. Then another few days. But it ended up taking 6 weeks. That was lame, but not their fault I guess. 

Overall I'm pretty happy with my experiences, but I'll try a different agent next time just to see what else is out there.

    1. None of them were custom sized, I just read the feedback to see how they fit on other girls (with some help from google translate haha). Thank you so much!! :)
