Taobao Shopping Tips | 逛淘宝必知

I love shopping, especially when the prices are something a little more affordable. Unfortunately for us, clothes shopping prices in Malaysia has gone rather steep especially when you buy them from the malls. I do like shopping in Bangkok but it really can be a hit and miss when you aren’t sure of the clothing season. This is why I’ve turned my addiction towards Taobao! Usually when i mention the word “Taobao” I get people with really shocked faces, mainly telling me it would be a bad idea but to be honest, I’ve not quite had a bad experience just yet so I thought I’d share my tips and tricks to making sure we don’t get conned by the sellers!
最近还真的步入了淘宝的万劫不复之渊。身边的人总是问我,啊?淘宝?那你得到的货品真的可以穿吗?怎么样买啊,你不是需要代购吗?答案是
真的可以穿,也不需要代购了。
但是你买任何东西前,该注意的选项还是有的,不然,买了,货品寄到家来你还真的会有惊喜了
Taobao | 逛淘宝必知 Tips

1) Make sure you check the seller’s reputation | 卖家名誉
2) Check the amount that has been sold, avoid those that has less than 5 sales volume |每个月销售量,少过5个就算了
3) CHECK THE REVIEWS! Most the time customers will upload photos of them in the clothes, so you’d get a feel to how the material will be like when worn |评语是你最佳朋友,尤其是那种有发照片的评语
4) Feel free to drop the seller a message if you have a question they have yet to answer | 若有疑问,请大大力按下“和商家联系”这个按钮

My purchases | 败家品
I’ve recently been obsessed with flute sleeves, so you can probably see all my tops are of flute sleeves in this haul. They can be quite tricky to pair it up, so I thought I’d show some other ways to wear them instead of just jeans/skirts.

最近真的超爱喇叭袖

Of course, you could wear them with normal jeans/skirts and you are good to go. They are extremely easy to jazz up your outfit without being too over the top

当然,你也可以就配个牛仔裤/短裙,真的是很耐看的

Instead of just wearing your top as just a top, why not wear them as a inner layer under your sleeveless dresses. It’ll create a new look and you get more wears out of your clothes too
你上衣还可以打底呢,如果你把你的衣服穿在你的无袖裙上,也是个不错的主意,穿起来不错,而且你还可以这样穿去比较端庄的场合

As the colors of the outfit is very simple, this makes it a quite suitable work outfit on a Friday.
也可以配一个比较夸张的裙子,因为颜色简单,所以什么场合都蛮适合的

To be completely honest, not my favourite look, but that’s only because this look looks a little too work like for me, and it’s also paired with the pants, I’m still a bigger fan of skirts.
说真的,我还是觉得我自己比较虚幻穿裙子,穿裤子总觉得还是有点不适,但是这个穿法去工作应该也蛮适合的
I do however, really like the top on this outfit. Love the little detail of the necklace ( provided along with the top) to spice the outfit up a little
这个我还挺喜欢的,可能也是因为上衣还带了一点小彩带(衣服附送的)

Dress-

This is a dress I really really love, it’s got all the elements I really do enjoy, but the only downside to the dress is that the material of the dress is rather thick, making it slightly unsuitable for extremely hot weather, but it’s of excellent quality.
说真的,我自己还真的很喜欢这个裙子的,但是布料真的有点厚,如果整天在冷气房还不错以外,以我们的天气穿这个衣服出去估计还真的会热死。材质还算是很舒服很不错的。特爱。
One of my favourite look! I really like the combination of the reds with the stripes, probs would wear this for my upcoming France trip if the weather ain’t too hot.
个人很喜欢这个搭配,觉得超有旅游fu 的。如果法国天气不会太热的话,你应该会看到我这样来穿了。

To be completely honest, when I bought this dress, I wasn’t expecting the dress to be so detailed, but if you can tell from the photo, the lacing on the dress is quite pretty. It’s a little too white fancy for my liking and not flowy enough for me to wear it, probs because of the rubber that cinches around the waist so I’m still trying to find a suitable occasion to wear it
这件裙子好像有点白了,所以个人不太喜欢.我本身便喜欢比较飘飘然的衣服,但是这件还算是挺附身的,所以,对我而言还有点太正式了,还找着机会穿上这件呢
And that is it for this month’s Taobao haul. If you asked me, I think it’s a great way to find simple pieces you aren’t too quite willing to fork out a bunch of money but still want some sort of quality to the outfit. Just remember to check the details of the product to avoid being scammed by the shops!
就这样总结了我在淘宝的败品。你问我的话,我觉得淘宝超诱人的,真的什么东西都找得到,但是你就是要注意的事项,还是总得该主意,不然有很大的可能性会买的货不对版哦~
