Shopping on Aliexpress + Buys


Lately Aliepress has been on the rise in popularity. A lot of people are a little weary about buying from the site because in the past it wasn't as trust worthy compared to eBay.Unlike most sites, Aliexpress doesn't accept Paypal. Which also scares people away from buying because if you do receive a bad item it's going to be difficult to get a refund. I myself was a bit iffy about it, but I decided to take a chance and buy a few items.  So far I haven't had any issue but I also did research on things before buying. For example A while back I  wanted to purchased virgin hair extensions. Before doing so I searched for reviews on YouTube. I know all sponsored reviewers aren't going to be reliable, so I watched both sponsored and non-sponsored videos.
The hair was my most expensive buy from the site. I felt a little more comfortable shopping there afterward.  Chances are there won't be reviews on clothing and beauty items outside of the site, so the best thing is to check each stores seller rating and hope for the best.




I bought 3 clothing items from different stores, I'll add a link to the items for those interested in purchasing them.
"Boy London" ( I'm bad I know)
Style: Crop top
Size: Free
Colors: black & white
Price: $6.00 _(no longer available from the seller)
Thoughts: I really like the shirt, the quality is decent for a Chinese knock off. I even got a like from BL Korea on instagram.
Dislike: The collar is a bit lazy.

Style: Crop top
Size: Free
Colors: black & white
Price: $8.60
Thoughts: The material is nice,the print is vibrant, and it fits great
Dislike: None

Tokyo cap with faux leather bill.

Style: Snap-back
Size: Free ( Adjustable)
Colors: Black & White
Price:$9;30
Thoughts:I LOVE this hat I used to wear it almost everyday, I got a lot of compliments on it. I like the printed text at the bottom the bill. I'm not sure what "prevalentness" means but it looks cool.
Dislike: Stitching on the bill of the hat is a big off.

  1. Aliexpress is ALL the rage here in Iceland, the postal office here in Iceland even has a special spot on their website for people tracking their aliexpress orders....xD Too bad there are a lot of stupid people that try to return their fake nikefree shoes to the nike wholesale here in Iceland.....xD
    Personally me and Lea prefer to shop on Taobao, as they usually have a better quality, AND are cheaper^^

    1. Hahaha that's so sad!! I thought everyone knew to not buy name brand things from Ali becuase 98% of the time it is fake.
      I've always wanted to try using Taobao! Any recommendation on stores?

    2. It is!! I don't know what those people are thinking truthfully.....
      So far I have mostly bought BJD stuff, so I don't really have any stores to recommend, but it is really easy to just use google translate to help you use taobao^^

  2. Sorry I have to comment on this as I'm a huge language geek 8D but I think the adjective 'Prevalent' is the more common way to use the word and it means that something is "dominant" / "superior" or just widespread. I love the cap and I've eyed it on ebay for sometime~
