taobao lovin’ | obc surprise

Another round of review because my #taobao loots are here! #ivyytaobao

I need to stop buying clothes because my wardrobe is bursting. I hope this will all fit the wardrobe in our new MBR. It has been decided that the husband will have his own cupboard in another room while I occupy the entire wardrobe in the MBR ๐Ÿ˜…

I like to get flowy light clothing because of the horrible weather we have here.

Itโ€™s not too bad isnโ€™t it! A little loose but no harm, I like loose clothing.

๐Ÿ’ธ: $3.29

Ahhh Iโ€™m sure the Dayre-sphere is very very familiar with this top. I was introduced to this top here.

Okay I donโ€™t think I can pull it off. Either that or itโ€™s a size too big for me. Definitely not for work if I were to reveal my shoulders. Canโ€™t make it look as nice as the stock image.

Thinking if I should let it go.. If anyone is interested in this, let me know! This is size M!

๐Ÿ’ธ: $5.58

Thought this can be good for both work and play.

Buttons are at the back.

I like the puffy sleeves!

Oops not very obvious here.

Then I realised itโ€™s not good for work and why it looks stretched here.

The top is restrictive in a way that when i raise my hand, half of my body is revealed. I guess if you donโ€™t raise your hands, itโ€™s all good.

Took special care to not do large actions with my hands when I wore this out ๐Ÿ˜…

๐Ÿ’ธ: $3.54

This is pretty!

And it comes in many colours! I think its great as a bridesmaid dress too. #dayrebrides can consider this? ๐Ÿ™‚

Got this one because I donโ€™t really have brown (or bronze?) clothing. Itโ€™s a 2-piece dress. Tulle dress with the collar shirt.

Just checked the price and itโ€™s $3.97?!?!?! I got it like at like at least twice the price!

๐Ÿ’ธ: $8.88 (huat ah!)

I have a thing for button up shirts and checkered patterns (@lcmei is observant enough to spot this heh).

What I did not realise is that itโ€™s thick too. Was expecting it to be of a thinner material but wore it to work yesterday and found it okay for the weather.

Went out of my comfort zone and got this colour. Donโ€™t really have green in my cupboard. Would have gotten blue/red if I were to go with my usual style. The quality is really good and I might might.. just go for another colour =X
๐Ÿ’ธ: $6.25

Only got this because my mum is getting the grey one for herself and I was intrigued. I know that itโ€™s gonna be a little thick but I figured it will be good for the cold office.

I wore this to work and I LURVE THIS! It’s so comfy and apparently it looks like a top in Uniqlo?

My mum loves it too and wanna get it in other colours already. I might just do the same too ๐Ÿ˜€

(My baggy pants and phone case featured here are from taobao too ๐Ÿ˜…)

๐Ÿ’ธ: $6.47

Ahhhh Iโ€™ve been eyeing it since #tohtallylokey part 1 and Iโ€™m finally getting this for part 2!

Itโ€™s battery-operated (6 AA batteries) and thereโ€™s a USB cable to plug it in too!
Now you know whenโ€™s #tohtallylokey part 2 ๐Ÿ˜€

It comes with the alphabets + a set of symbols!

๐Ÿ’ธ: $33.33

A surprise parcel!

Opened my letterbox and found a bulky package, to my delight!

Wasn’t expecting it because @braintango only mailed it out yesterday. Delivery is super fast this time round!

Got the paddings! #ourbraletteclub

Chow put so much effort into this and I am so gonna keep it!


I kept the ziplock bags that the #OBC classic labels came in, and used them when I go overseas. It’s so freaking useful and convenient!


Hahaha thank you Chow for such a cute and useful packaging! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

I’m gonna try the padding for work tomorrow!


polaroids | taobao loots

Printed out some Polaroid from our Bali trip!

I always print these out so that there’s something physical as keepsake and photos to use for wedding decor ๐Ÿ˜‚

Only remembered after reading @pretzelove’s post on instax printer. ๐Ÿ™Š

I have a box that contains all the stuff the husband and I have together. Movie stubs, staycation receipts, photos etc.

The polaroids are occupying so much space, I need a new box just for the Polaroids already!

The time-consuming part is labeling these polaroids. I like to know when the photos were taken and what occasion it was ๐Ÿ˜€

Been receiving lots of packages lately due to quite a bit of online shopping.

Makes me happy because it’s like receiving presents from the past me! ๐Ÿ™Š

Here are some of my #taobao loots so far.. I’ve got more packages to come heheh can’t wait!

Now that I’ve got #ezbuy prime, I think you’ll see more #ivyytaobao reviews ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

This is from ezbuy’s flash deal. Quality is decent, but I think I have to be gentle with the zips.

There’s a side compartment at the back. Good for keys.

Slightly bigger zip compartment in front.

There’s a small zip compartment inside the bag too. Pretty impressed!

๐Ÿ’ธ: $4.73

Got myself some earrings and it came in a pretty box!

Some pink tassels for me.

My favourite pair so far! Received quite a bit of compliments for this one ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

๐Ÿ’ธ: $2.13

This is a free gift! I don’t really like the huge balls though..

Grey balls ๐Ÿ˜‚

They look very obvious against my pink/purple hair.

๐Ÿ’ธ: $2.13

Red tassels.

Kinda regret getting this colour now because it will camouflage in my pink hair? I haven’t got the chance to wear this out yet.

๐Ÿ’ธ: $2.13

My 2 favourite pairs!

I’m expecting more packages these few days so more reviews to come!
