Lately I start to order a lot from Aliexpress site. Of course most of the time it’s kind of roulette with size, sewing quality or fabric because you can obviously see that many pictures are not original…or even if they are it’s hard to guess how it will turn out when you actually get it. Big advantage is price. Because of the price I decided to made a risk and ordered some original pieces there. I love to have original stuff that is not so popular on the streets around me. And it is so difficult to find pieces like this jacket in stores…! Well: I don’t regret buying on Aliexpress. Now I have couple of dresses from there and this beautiful jacket which is my favourite now. What you really need to take under consideration while ordering:
– for all pieces sent by China Post Registered Mail you will need to wait around 1,5 -2 months (slowest option). Some retailers there send stuff with DHL/ePacket/other which is much faster (for me it was not longer then 1 month)
– Price is quality. If you order VERY cheap, then of course fabric quality will be cheap
-Always check the reviews. I always like when some customers add real pictures in reviews (I always doing that), so you can see more of real item you receive.
– check the size! Two of the mini dresses I ordered are too short. I’m 164cm and always buying XS in stores, but I should order S or even M from China. Generally waist is good in XS but short dresses are too short for me, so I will need to remade them with some extra length somehow (I already have a plan for that). If you order midi or long dresses and you slim then XS will be fine.
Generally I think Aliexpress is worth to give a try 🙂
