Peeled cucumber edition
Seriously considering making some kind of AE copy paste guide thing, like when you should chose it over taobao and vice versa.
>[...] Making an AE copy paste guide thing
Can peeled cuc be the mascot? Or perhaps pic related?
That would be awesome, I really want to get the blouse in the pic related along with some other items from this shop
(from AliExpress Android)
But idk if there is a taobao shop with the items at better prices.
The taobao listing is always cheaper, but the question is how big of an order are you making? At a certain point paying for the shipping and SS fees is cheaper than buying a bunch of marked up items from AE. But for small orders I'd go with AE
Oh I'm planning to make a big taobao order anyways, I just don't know where that particular aliexpress store is getting their items or if the items are from taobao I'm just assuming that they must be.
Has anyone seen that V Castle fluffy cat dress on ali?
I tried ordering it again and it's out of stock. This is the third time it's happened.
I've tried looking for 'lush cat dress but I'm only finding unrelated cat dresses, or dresses for cats.
Sorry, I forgot everyone doesn't know what it looks like, it's been a long day haha.
taobao is cheaper. But I don't recommend this store.
Bought from it before, the fabrics aren't bad but it's terribly sewn and most times it comes with deffects. I had one skirt that had the lace falling off of it.
It looks nice in pictures but not worth the money
here's what i'm waiting on, everything's been shipped so far.
i had a bunch of other stuff, and also a huge irrelevant taobao order, but these are the last ali things im waiting for
Got this bag during the 11/11 sale, it's pretty good and didn't arrive smelling like chemicals like some bags do.
My only complaint is there's no inner fabric layer and the clasps will probably break soon since they are made of that weird thin metal, but that's pretty easy to fix.
I'll take it out for a few days to see the durability of it.
The price is a bit higher now, but here's the link in case anyone likes it.
I can share more links of stuff I bought and recommend, as well as stuff that I absolutely don't (I'm the same anon that received the skirt with the lace falling off)
Requesting any good engrish clothes you gulls might know of on aliexpress.
The last bits of my small order have come in, I was pretty happy with everything I got.
>Really want certain jacket
>It's only in 1 size, but everything fits besides
>I have 39-40cm (depends how I measure)
>Other buyers complain about it being really small
>The same size everywhere
There's no way I'll fit, is there?
There's a shit ton of bags on Aliexpress I'd just love to own, but they're like 99% replicas... And some are really like nearly identical to originals, down to chocolate embossing in the leather, which honestly scares me. I'll probably never buy them since I'm anti-replica, no matter how big the company, but it's still so fucking tempting. Like I could just buy 3 or 4 fake dream bags for the price of a single brand one and never even show them to other lolitas, yet still flaunt them on the town.
But considering how terrible I felt after what I thought a generic bow purse turned out to be a straight knock-off, that just ain't for me I suppose...
Found one, no feedback on it though and not loads for the store. it was the only one i could find on there
Oh my gosh anon, this is all super cute and totally my style. Is it okay if I ask you for links?
And if you could take pictures when they get to you, that would be so awesome! Thank you!
Also bumping for interest in the Cath Kidston replica, I sold my real version of that dress when I was going through a rough patch last year and always upset me that I had to let it go.
Sadly all the sellers I bought from are now sold out of the 4 things you asked for, but I was able to find other sellers carrying the 2 cardis and the bag.
I wasn't able to find the same blouse though, sorry anon! I'll take some pics when they arrive.
I bought more than I expected to, but either way I'm really excited for everything to arrive.
other tights: >>8827635
if you search 'biscuit shaped bag' it should be the first couple of results
i got the bag yesterday, but was too busy to take actual pictures (also the dress im coording it with hasnt arrived yet) but if you want to see or know anything specific just ask!
i really, really like this bag, its a good size with a good quality material, there are 3 smaller pockets on the inside for your cell phone and various smaller junk, and it comes with a crossbody strap as well as the regular handles which is something that a similar bag i found on taobao didnt have
the only thing I didnt like was that the manufacturer set the, i dont know the word for it, strap... holders?? they set them too low so that when you hold the bag by the strap itself, it kind of hands sideways. not a huge issue for me since ill hardly use the strap anyway, and maybe if you put items in the bag it will balance itself out but there it is.
here you go!
my shoulder are also 40cm and I should not do it! I ordered some things in the past, with thinking those couple of cm woudn't make a big difference. But I always ending up selling it, it never fit right.
do you think so? im still pretty new to lolita, tho ive been lurking and learning off and on for a while now. one day ill be able to afford the actual bag but for now the replica will have to do.
So this is everything I've ever bought from Aliexpress. Thought I'd post it up here in case anyone wants reviews/sauce/pictures of anything since I see some of these things pop up in these threads pretty often.
(Please forgive my gross chipped nails)
It's pretty delicate, as expected. You can even see where it got caught and snagged a bit. I've worn it a bunch of times (4-5) and it has held up. The hardware is really nice and the lace is soft. One weird thing though (or I just have a really scrawny neck) is that it's really loose. It still looks like the stock photo when worn though.
This one is a bit odd in that the metal was already tarnished when I received it? Or perhaps it's an effect? Either way, it's surprisingly heavy for 80 cents.
I got a message saying it wont ship until the 15th because cny. I guess I was hoping it'd get shipped before cny started haha. I'll review it whenever it gets here. Thanks again for the link!
does anyone know where i can get earrings like these that aren't expensive?
Different anon, but curious, where where did you get the pom poms? Ones that I see at craft stores aren't as soft or voluminous as the ones in that pic
Also, this may be better suited for a different thread, but I ordered something through dreamv last night and im kinda confused. they never asked me to input any payment info. I know that they message you later about shipping, but I would assume you'd need to put in payment info to get your purchase paid for and then pay for shipping separately?
They emailed me an order number and said to wait a while for shipping info, and they also gave me a thank you for purchasing coupon...
I was really tired while ordering but I don't remember putting in payment info at all, and i have never ordered from rakuten before.
This all came out to around $40, about half of it was the shoes.
Looking at this makes me just want to go buy more stuff...
It's really not the same look though. The pom poms in that photo are probably made of rabbit fur. Incidentally "rabbit fur pom pom" is an excellent search term to use on AliExpress if you want to make your own.
Saw this cute coat.
Does anyone know of any cute pajama sellers? My friend showed me Princess Collection but it's a little bit expensive.
They've been in my cart for a while, i've been wanting them but had other shit to buy so I'm excited to finally order them. Hope they are worth the wait!
Anybody have any interesting cat items? Like for cats? I got a kitty recently and I'm always looking for fun stuff for him. Gotta keep that kitty kawaii
These lidded cat beds look like great fun: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Kitty-Hamburger-Litter-Disassemblability-Windproof-Pet-Nest-Shell-Cat-dog-Bed-Hiding-Burger-Bun-Pet-Cat/318391_32217087735.html
I'm the anon who linked you to them, and I did. Their size chart has a size 8 as 24.5 in Chinese/Japanese size and that's normally an 8.5 from what I've found.
But if you don't want to risk it try search terms like lolita platform velvet vintage punk shoes and there are tons of listings with different sizes available.
Also beware because the price for that listing I linked does NOT include shipping
That cardigan is cute af, thanks for the link anon!
Oh I have those socks too! A little warning though, they have no stretch and people with wide or large feet may have a problem.
I admit I had issues shoving my american size 6 in them, but they get easier the more you wear them.
I've purchased each of these in multiple colours and they're both extremely nice.
The reviews are nowhere near 100% positive. They're littered with people complaining about inferior products and items that didn't arrive at all. This store hardly seems trustworthy and their products aren't otome.
Cat boob cut out lingerie
Also comes in black
I got one of these balls free with some cat beds I bought and my cats loved it so much (significantly more than the thing I'd paid for) I had to find them and buy more
Bought a basic bitch Sonico cosplay and it's fairly nice quality and fits well, it's not amazing but it does the job. I've got two Love Live costumes and another cosplay on the way that I might post here if they're good as a review.
unrelated but do you have a recommendation for what ss to use for y!ja?
related: just bought some socks
Couple of things I bought. Also considering buyingThanks for the link anon!
Not OP but I bought mine here:
Anyone have links to plastic bags like pic related? I want to do a Itabag so badly
Yeah. The most famous are those lace up boots from a couple of years ago. The replicas are usually a couple seasons behind and only include really popular shoes. Which style were you looking for?
A simple pair of heels with bows or pom-poms and those lace up boots as well. Just looking for one that won't fall apart and generally match all of my Liz Lisa dresses. I don't mind if they're a few seasons behind, usually their simpler heel designs fit into any season.
I'm currently staring at this adorable vest.
Collage of some of the things I've bought since November
Can provide links and reviews (don't count on reviews for anything marked with an orange dot any time soon, I literally paid for some of those less than 20 minutes ago and don't expect them to arrive until March with the Chinese New Year madness)
(Dropped pic last time so I deleted it and am posting this again)
Ah sorry for taking so long to get back, I was in class then got distracted by college stuff
Here's the listing I used.
I actually got it for 45¢ because it was one of those flash deals and I couldn't resist.
The pendant is about 1in in diameter. The moon is slightly greenish irl. Like it's gray but it seems to have a blue-green undertone. It seems to be attached securely. I'm not sure if it's glass or a heavy plastic. The chain is 12 inches when folded over (like when the clasp is closed) so I guess it would be about 24 inches when open. It's long enough that I can pull it over my head without opening it (and I have a big head). The pendant hangs around the top of my sternum.
I'm sure the metal used is cheap but it hasn't turned my skin green yet (although I haven't worn it that much since I'm anal about matching all my metal colors and tend to wear silver more than gold). I'm planning on buying one of those jewelry coatings to cover all the cheap jewelry I get so that the finish won't wear off. Overall definitely worth 54¢
Just realized that you may of wanted a link. They're everywhere and you can find them pretty easily if you search for "funny panties" or "pussycat" but here's the listings I used
The cheapest one I could find and ended up using was
I only bought the pink ones from there because they were sold out of the black, which I bought from a separate listing:
If you do some digging you also can find some different styles (ones with lace back panels, high waist cut, and some that have different cats or other animals on them)
I have clothes from a certain brand (asian brand but not asian sizes) that I know the sizing for and want to buy some fakes of it from AliExpress. Should I expect something from AliExpress to be similar in sizing to the real or in asian sizing?
ha, this suddenly appeared in my suggested items this morning too
...as well as pic related, probably my go-to response picture for unwanted dick pics from now on
>generic ali knockoff of a brand you wont even tell
>can you gulls read my mind and tell me if these two items i've seen are the same
just read the damn size chart for the item and you'll find out, how exactly are we supposed to know for you?
Just found this, might interest someone. That price though kek
Found this dress in beige and black, but not from any reputable sellers and I really want the pink. I've exhausted my google-fu, wondering if any of you kids have happened to see it around. Thanks in advance.
I love the picture
This is so beyond Engrish i dont even know if it counts
>Non Engrish stuff
I love finding strange stock photos or products on AE
Why would you buy something when the pictures are so beyond photoshopped??
Why is there so much putin stuff on aliexpress?
This is so kitshcy that I thought someone would like it.
Thought this was pretty adorable, too.
Has anyone ever ordered this from another listing or something? I don't need it but it's so cute and I'm tempted to add it to my next hugeass order
Actually, this is very popular store, with ~5000 reviews, so you can buy safely. I'm pretty sure I bought something earlier, and my experience with bags on Aliexpress, both smaller and larger are very good. I never got any defective bag and they always looked just liked on photos, with high quality (synthetic) leather and strong zipper and clasps.

Filed under 'What the Hell?"
Are there decent custom sized lolita stores in AE? I know they are probably doing the same shit as the other chinese lolita stores but I have an easier time paying AE orders (can use debit card when I need PP and credit card for other stuff, PP can't into debit card here).
Strictly custom sized (as in precise measurements made to your order) probably no, however you'll find many stores which sells not "one size fits all", but with various sizes XS-XL, and with measurement table, which would give you idea what to buy. This store for example has various sizes: http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/jqBQvbyV3

New to buying on Ali (I'm a cosplayer, not into Jfash) and the items I'm looking at are normalfaggy stuff to wear to work, but this is the only place I know to get honest advice on determining the quality of items. I looked around for a guide but there isn't one in the OP and I couldn't find one elsewhere.
I'm looking at the same skirt from two different shops. They both seem to have decent reviews, though I can't get my computer to copy/paste the Russian reviews into Google translate. The difference is that one is twice the price of the other.
I would normally think that the cheap one would be cheaper quality, but the reviews seem favorable and if I can save the money I'd obviously rather do so. Is price much of an indicator or should I look at the reviews only?
This is a photo from the reviews of the cheaper one. Comparing the photos in the reviews of the more expensive one they seem pretty similar in quality.
Thanks anon. I didn't realize there was an option to see review photos. If they're similar in quality I'll get the cheaper one. The fabric looks a little thin but it's not terrible and if I'm only out $13 I won't be too upset.
I found these just by searching 'Straw bag' most would work best for classic/country.
Dumb question: Does anyone know why some stores just cancel orders? I had an order cancelled a "your payment didn't go through" message. In fact, I've got to wait on a refund to process because my payment DID go through.
What kind of luck have you guys had with shoe shopping? I get it is hit or miss depending on the seller, but I mean overall? My feet are pretty big so I'm pretty much at the top end of the available range and can't really size up if most tend to run small, for instance.
Like this? Don't know if Rilakkuma is still fashionable though:

If I wanted "one-size fits all" I would have gotten it without posting. But thanks for the help anyway.
The lace isn't that horrifying but that black ribbon on white socks is yuck.
I thought so, have seen some horrible feedbacks on regular lolita clothing.
Has anyone here ever tried to order lolita clothes from AE? Just genuinely curious.
Yeah, I bought a blouse from Infanta's AE storefront back in August. Pretty pleased with the quality. The price is higher than it is on taobao but shipping is included and they ship ridiculously fast (5 days to the east coast of the USA)
If you're planning on making a large order I'd just buy from the taobao store instead
For some reason their AE storefront is empty now
Chinese New Year is happening and that fucks everything up, that could be why
Just bought this panda hoodie, gonna post it when arrives (probably in a few weeks, since it is Chinese New Year), so sellers are alerting about possible delays:
I have big feet too, and since I had some disposable income I decided to say "fuck it" and take the plunge. I'll gladly review these when I receive them.
I thought someone would like this
Asking anon here. That was my first impression too since thicker materials shouldn't get wrinkles that fast. But since I'm fairly new to this stuff, personal opinions are always better.
Not sure if all of these would be considered mori jsyk. Also you might be able to find them cheaper with some more searching but here's what i found:
>green cardigan w/ patch
>ruffle hem cardigan
>cardigan w/ multi-colored buttons & elbow patches
>flower embroidery cardigan
>lacey long cardigan
I just got pic related in black, it's exactly as pictured. Can take pics if someone wants.
I am 173cm tall and and it's just right. Might be too loose on thin fingers though.
More mori-style (or mori-esque) stuff:
Maple leaves dress:
Be wary, that there is Chinese New Year now, and seller will start sending orders in about 2 weeks, after holidays.
what size would you gulls say the One-Size-Fits-All roughly translates to? I'm looking at a jumper that's supposed to hang slightly loose but I don't know if it'll end up being more fitted since if it's made for tiny Asian people

I'm a 28DD in US sizing - meaning, y'know, boobs themselves are big, ribcage isn't, which makes buying stuff like that questionable in the first place, but I dunno how it'd really work with a peekhole type bra..
Perfect boobs anon, I am jealous, wish mine was slightly bigger. I have this cat set for sexy time:

My Samantha Vega knockoff arrived, very pleased with it.
Does anyone know a shop that seels MM knock-off bags like pic related?
Anyone have any experience with not receiving items after the purchase protection ends? I swear they extended because just last week I read read I had 25 more days. Then suddenly my purchase was marked as finished and I never received my item. I made a dispute already so I hope they find in favor of me.
The collage made the photo blurry but the print is good.
Don't worry, Aliexpress is really skewed towards the customer, and you will receive refund in a few days. Just don't drop your dispute, whatever seller says. If he says that he will send you new parcel, because old is lost, don't cancel dispute, because you can open it only once - just type that you don't want this order anymore or just don't reply. I am buying a lot on Aliexpress (I am level 4 customer - largest level available, and it's based on order quantity) and I've never had any problems with these. After dispute time will pass (usually about 3 days) you will automatically get full refund to your card (in another few days).
You might want to check this store out. Lot's of knock-offs with reasonable prices and good reviews:
Does anyone have any recommendations for school cardigans with pockets?
This is most popular schoolgirl cardigan with pockets and it has only 5-star reviews, so I would guess it would be nice. Moreover, there is wide range of sizing from S to XXL and it's available in 10 different colours, so this would be your best bet. Seller is also very reputable:
Guys please help advice.
I bought a pair of platform boots like this
The platform completely came off one of the shoes. The shoe is still all in one piece though, like I can still wear it WITHOUT the platforms but it'll wobble since the bottom is slanted. How can I fix this? I paidlike $60 for these yumetenbo/dreamv shoes and I don't think they're worth double that to get a shoe cobbler to fix. How can I fix the sole can I just glue it back on with shoe goo?
Forgot to mention, I already opened a dispute with Aliexpress and asked for a partial refund of $40. If they don't respond in 4 days it'll close in my favor, and I'm hoping that they don't respond since CNY coming up.
I love the variety of things that stores sell on ali. I got sent the wrong product and went to the store front to see if they have the shirt i wanted still, and this came up.
In my experience, once most of the sole comes off its a lost cause. If the sole isnt flexible/strong enough to affix to the shoe it might be impossible
I'm no expert though, other anons might have better advice.
yeaaah i was willing to believe it was just a misguided newbie at first but there's been enough suspiciously worded random tacky item links in here that i'm starting to agree with you.
>this is most popular
>moreover, there is a wide range of sizing
>which sells not "one size fits all", but with various sizes XS-XL
>actually, this is very popular store, with ~5000 reviews, so you can buy safely
This coat looks cute but the feedback images make the sizing look really inconsistent, like some of the small sizes look larger on people with the same body type.
I'm having a weird problem, this morning I could grab the coins and coupons, went back to it now and everything but the new year ad is gone. If you're able to get them, could you let me know?
I'm using the app, on the home page of it there's a button for Coins and Coupons. While the app is loading there's a new years banner covering the whole page but it goes away in a second or two.
this is really, really weird, no matter what I do, the coins don't show up again.
I wonder if it has something to do with my country, even my boyfriend couldn't access it on his account.
Yup....just got 1500 coins and now can't cash them in.
Anon that was trying to help you earlier here. Super glad you figured it out, especially because its happening to me too now! Happened right after I updated my app
I'm pretty sure since they're site wide Coupons and not store Coupons its only one per order. Don't quote me on that though.
This anon here. My coins & coupons thing vanished as well but I did uninstall and reinstall and it came right back. Still says coupons are out of stock though and to try again tomorrow.
I will add that the brown color is darker than pictured, but it's a nice roomy bag.
