Authentic branded bags at affordable prices – cheaper than retail!

Hello all! Hope your week’s been treating you good so far and hope that your weekend would rock even more 🙂

I’ve started another online shop (I know I’ve countless in the past…) called Branded Vogue and am starting a weebly platform first since most items are on a pre-order basis so there isn’t really a need for a tech-y e-commerce one yet.

There is currently an ongoing promotion in conjunction with our Grand Opening and the upcoming Festive season, we are offering a $30 discount applicable to ALL OUR ITEMS!!!  Valid till 25th Dec 2013

Prices are waaaayyyy totally below retail prices hence Branded Vogue is able to incur less overhead expenses which simply translates into more cost-savings for our customers!
You can now get hold of your favourite dream bag at a much lower prices without compromising on its authenticity and quality! 

Rest assured that all items are 100% authentic. 🙂

How do you shop wisely?

Have you been caught in a situation whereby you have bought something and only to realise that you could have gotten it at a cheaper price? Or that you could have won FREE lucky draws and attractive prizes?

Besides reading reviews, by researching for better promotions and offers help you make informed decisions during shopping as well!

Here is a little simple analysis on Singaporean shoppers :

WIN PRETTY APPARELS!

Hello you! Here’s a little update on my current life right now. Previously, I’d mentioned that I will be going on a hiatus for awhile due to exams and yes, I’m still having exams which would only end this Friday.

For those who don’t already know, I’m currently pursuing my Master of Laws… So yes, I’m taking a postgraduate course. I feel flattered that some people still thinks I’m an undergrad because it only means 1 thing, that I still look young right? And that I’m still able to pull off as an undergrad. HAHAHA. Self-denial.

So anyway, I’ll be updating this space more often once the nightmarish days are over. Nightmarish days – how ironic, heh. Will be updating on food and beauty reviews so stay tuned! 🙂

Nevertheless, thanks for checking back on this little unpopular dusty virtual space of mine, really really appreciate it 🙂

My Online Shop!

The time has finally come! I am back being a boss… I know I’ve countless online shops before but products were mostly on a pre-order basis. However, I’d decided to take a chance this time round and bring in instocks! I know how long waiting time is such an ass for pre-orders so I’m hoping that things would change for the better this time round!

My entrepreneurial (or rather, techopreneurship) spirit has been growing fiercely in me ever since I was young. I’ve been selling clothes, accessories, shoes, handmade accessories such as earings, necklaces and bracelets and I had even went to the extend to design shoes to sell! I’ve even customised some for customers – who were my niece and nephew la.

Take a look!

diyshoes5 diyshoes6 diyshoes diyshoes2 diyshoes3 diyshoes4

But I’d decided to cease operations because it was very time-consuming and lots of efforts were required. Plus, I was still a full-time student at that time during Uni days… and although you can’t convert some intangible into monetary value, it was quite obvious that the effort, time, blood and sweat, not forgetting the numerous of materials required did not justify the price of the shoes. Furthermore, I can’t be pricing my items too high too.

Yup, so here’s my new online shop :

Here are some of the beautiful and exquisite clothes we have brought in for you!

Gmarket/Qoo10 Shops to BOYCOTT (Part II)!!!

Further to my previous post (Part I), here is another shop on Gmarket/Qoo10 you might wanna consider boycotting. If I were to rank these 2 shops, this 2nd shop is a tad better than PrettyCloset (aka prettycloset.sg).

2. C-Life is the name of the shop.

In the end, I didn’t get a refund from him/her because I can’t be bothered anymore, plus he wanted my PayPal account which I thought was kinda troublesome and I know that there are additional charges involved for PayPal transactions.

So the whole timeline sequence goes like this :

Note, it was my 2nd time buying from this shop because I have had good experience during my 1st purchase. Both orders were on portable chargers for iPhone and the latter purchase was for bf, who also bought an adaptor and pouch on top of the portable charger.

Problems faced : Wrong colour for charger given. Didn’t send out adaptor. Pouch was ok. Cable for portable charge faulty, very loose, can’t charge properly and hence, always gets disconnected.

Already provided him the order number like several times and he still kept asking for it. See the dates.

Shot emails…

GONG SIMI?!

Okay, end of story.

I did not provide him my paypal account but after learning that you can actually cancel the order and refund the $ to the buyer via the Qoo10 platform which  PrettyCloset actually told me, perhaps I should do get the person to do that. Or maybe just let the matter rest altogether.

In any case, this C-Life is definitely tad better than PrettyCloset, but both of them are definitely going into my blacklist.

You may also read on the bad reviews on Gmarket, especially on its slow delivery, missing items and faulty items for PrettyCloset and C-Life.

I may just add another shop to my blacklist. Will see how.

Hopefully by pointing them out would do my readers some good.

Update on 28th March 2013 : http://list.qoo10.sg/item/PRETTYCLOSET-VALENTINE-DAY-VARIOUS/405110137

I have replied to a comment left on this blog entry regarding irresponsible sellers and I have taken the effort to check back on one of them –  PrettyCloset.

Naturally, reading even more bad reviews from other  buyers who experienced terrible customer service as well as didn’t receive items from this seller didn’t surprise me one bit. Rather, it affirms my stand.

I hope the person who left the comment would read the reviews of others as well before pointing fingers.

Gmarket/Qoo10 Shops to BOYCOTT (Part I – Pretty Closet contd)!!!

Mentioned in my previous post on the same seller on Gmarket that I will be updating on this juicy bit, so here it is!

So if you would recall on the last encounter I had with this seller PrettyCloset (aka prettycloset.sg), my inquiry was replied with a full stop on Gmarket website.

Read here to see what happened and I’m gonna continue it from there…

No reply after my last message on Thursday 6th Dec… No updates on Friday (which they claimed they sent out the item).. Texted seller on 8th Dec afternoon no reply and finally gotten a reply at night.. 7hrs later after I texted him/her again.

My last message was very clear which was for them to update me when my item is sent out, but no, they failed to.

And the war begins..

“I do not wish to start an argument with you” – perfecto!

I engage in verbal diarrhea when Im angry!

Yadayada…

You’re not interested? I’m not interested either.

The person thinks I didn’t shoot inquiries online… dumbass!

If you don’t wish for any so-called nuisance to reach you via your mobile, then why the f did you put it up online for the 1st place to allow customers to reach you?! Brainless.

Look at how this seller replies to customers. Few dollars, then why do you wanna scam and get yourself into trouble for these few bucks?

Can’t even spell ‘scam’ correctly, a real scum indeed!

I didn’t know typing in caps is illegal and this person seriously is damn fking rude. Donation! I don’t think I need to be donated anything? Not especially when I PAID FOR THE ITEM.

Yawns, seriously bored me out.

I didn’t bother replying his/her stupid last message. But a surprise came last midnight while I was snoozing away but got awoken by this ‘sweet’ msg.

I counter-checked and true enough, I didn’t opt for registered postage because there was no option for that! I assumed I had opted that because I’ve always opted for registered postage for ALL my online purchases. There were only speedpost and normal postage options, so yes I do admit that it’s my bad. But then again, if I didn’t opt for registered postage, why did the person confirmed that the 1st 2 leggings were sent via registered postage? Honestly, I don’t remember if they were sent via normal postage or registered one because I didn’t take much notice, but I’m more inclined to say that they sent via normal postage than registered since they didn’t have that option for me to choose from. It certaintly didn’t arrive in speedpost postage.

Covered the pic as my personal details are stated there.

Firstly, you didn’t promise me anything. Secondly, I totally doubt your identity (person replying told me that there are different person-in-charge for replying online, replying sms-es etc and he/she is just a delivery person/worker. He/she also said that the person replying online to Qoo10 inquiries is the boss.) Thirdly, maybe ‘great’ feedback was tainted with sarcasm. Fourthly, ‘thank you for your business’ seemed a little odd for me. Perhaps reading this article would be beneficial to you?

Lastly, since I can’t confirm that there are 2/3 different people replying to me, I can only deduce :

  1. It’s the same person but with split personality and bipolar symptoms
  2. The person experienced some karma
  3. Some godly figure enlightened him/her
  4. Mama told him/her it’s wrong to find fault with customers especially when it’s the seller’s fault to begin with
  5. He/she is truly apologetic for the bad experience

Anyways, I still stand firm and expect to receive the maroon leggings by this week and actually I am giving this seller the benefit of the doubt by granting him 5days grace period, when actually I should expect it today (Monday) or latest Wednesday.

Whatever the case is, beware of this seller.

By the way as mentioned in my previous post,  PrettyCloset on Gmarket/Qoo10 is the same seller as prettycloset.sg as seen from the shop info on Gmarket on its contact details (email add) which is the same as the one on prettycloset.sg.

P.S. : For those who think that I should let the matter rest by removing the posts, save it. I’m not gonna do that since by alerting potential customers will be doing a favour, a good deed, don’t you think?

Stay tuned for Part II…!

Fashion Advertorial – Let’s Buttons Up!

Sponsorship

Let’s Buttons Up was very kind to sponsor me this beautiful piece of dress which carries uniqueness.

I chose this exquisite piece not only because it caught my eye, but also because I’ve not seen it sold anywhere else, thus affirming its exclusivity.

As shown from the pictures, the dress is made up of different materials which illustrates its specialty.

“A lustrous body-conscious sleeveless dress features a round neckline, finished hem, intricate lace details and is designed with monochrome matelassĂ© skirt. This dainty little number doesn’t include any closures allowing it to lay down smoothly. Available in Mustard, Coral and Green.”

A hugging-body dress which accentuates your dainty figure as well as all the right feminine curves.  It’s unique, classy and sexy which perfects that hot date, casual outing with friends or even for clubbing!

A little update on my hauls over the weekend

I don’t usually shop at retail stores unless really necessary, for example, to get stuffs from convenience stores. 

Shopped over at GMarket, otherwise now known as Qoo10, and bought these items (and more to come! =x)

This seller on gmarket provides very efficient delivery and all items were packed nicely and bubble wrapped for the eyeliners, to prevent any breakage. 

Have been wanting to try out nu bra for the longest time but decided to get the newer version of the bra with adhesive sides. It has sticky sides but I wonder how effective it is and whether it would slip off any moment while wearing it. Also, cleaning it seems to be a little problematic as well as it might lose its stickiness? It came with a free underwear too and it was a G-String pls -.-

Anyway, tried out some swatches of the eyeliners (Silver, white copper and black). The silver being the lightest and faintest didn’t excite me at all. Am loving the white and black one best. White ones are perfect for brightening your eye rims (the inner corners of your eyes near your tear ducts) and black ones are awesome for a little rugged look for smokey eyes. Would definitely post up an entry on these eyeliners when I get a chance to use them.

And yes, bought the black double eyelid tapes again! Really awesome! Even my colleague commented that I look different with them and that they are nice 🙂 Got it cheaper compared to the previous seller on GMarket.

Heh, definitely 2 thumbs up for this seller!

You guys can start shopping away at this shop : http://www.qoo10.sg/shop/wow_wild?goodscode=405256939#ci 

Out damn Monday Blues! Now, begone! 

ENJOY SHOPPING! 😀
