My First Taobao Haul!

I have been tweeting about Taobao like crazy recently. A bunch of people are asking me what Taobao is and how I buy my stuff there. Taobao is like China’s eBay. The system is more or less the same: search keywords and you’ll see similar products from different sellers. They also have a feedback system like eBay.

But instead of purchasing from Taobao directly, I came across StalkLife (Taobao Manila), a local shopping service. Although you’ll be spending a little bit on service charge, I think this is actually better cos they send someone to China to buy the stuff and bring them into the PH personally. It’s not only safer, but less of a hassle too cos you’ll be avoiding nasty custom dues and whatnots.

Soooooo, what did I buy?

Skeleton tights, tiger sweater,  buckled booties, and creepers in maroon & black faux suede! ♥ ♥ ♥

Also, the very kind and accomodating Melissa of Stalklife gave me a free statement tote bag! Sweet!

Oh, their next batch is scheduled to arrive sometime in May! I suggest you go check out Stalklife's facebook page for announcements and other information you’ll be needing! Let’s shop shop shop! ♥

Jeepers Creepers by Gold Dot Couture

If you remember, a few months back, I won Gold Dot's first giveaway. What’s the best thing to do with 15,000 PHP worth of GCs? Splurge on bespoke/couture shoes!

You might have heard of Gold Dot crafting beautiful shoes for the likes of Kris Aquino, Solenn Heusaff, Ann Curtis and  Vice Ganda. Aside from their natural knack for making original designs, their craftsmanship is superb. I’ve owned several pairs from their RTW collections, and never did they disappoint me (except sometimes, they have weird sizing). Nevertheless, they’re one of the best shoemakers in the country!

Now let me show you my own pair of Gold Dot couture shoes!

Baxter by Gold Dot

Say hello to Baxter, my angsty, grungy booty from Gold Dot. This is actually my first -ever- pair from the brand. I’ve been secretly stalking Baxter ever since I got to knew Gold Dot (way back Multiply era), and imagine my delight when I finally, finally got to buy it!

Now, onto the review…
