One Dress 4 Sites

Shocker shocker.

I have to admit, I LOVE THIS DRESS. But I refrain myself from buying it because I want to see how available is this dress in the market.

And lucky me, I was right. The dress keep popping out at other sites. Sometimes I wish the online sites do a little bit more of research and not to pick the same design that can be seen at other online sites. 

They always tell you 
'specially handpicked' 
'exclusive labels' 
'Must have' 
'Limited pieces'

Browse through and tell me how true it is. 

30th March 2012, Doublewoot introduced it and sold it at RM70.00

Thinking its safe, but 2 months down the road, Atire Attic is selling it at RM69.00 (cheapest of the bunch so far). Attire Attic uploaded it on 15th May 2012.

Then the ball starts rolling, 18th May 2012, IIvory Couture selling it at RM70.00

And finally last but not least, Curves Boutique just launched it as their new collection on 31st May 2012 selling at RM70.00.

So much that I love this dress, I have to let it go. Like the song Too Much by Spice Girls 

"Too much of something is bad enough"

Doublewoot v Curves Boutique

Shoppers alert!

Curves Boutique just updated their latest collection and note that! It is not really 'the latest'. Some of the designs had already been sold at other sites 2-3 weeks ago.

Here are some for you to watch out in case you are interested to buy. Comparison made mainly with Doublewoot! 

Stella McCartney inspired design.
Curves Boutique (31.5.2012) RM69.00
Doublewoot (early May) RM69.00
Frill Dress
Curves Boutique (31.5.2012) RM69.00
Doublewoot RM69.00
Michael Kors inspired pencil dress
Curves Boutique RM70.00
Doublewoot RM72.00 
Aside from comparing postage prices where Doublewoot is giving free delivery, their prices are almost the same. Not huge difference. But you may want to think twice now before you buy because you never know which site will also be selling the same design.

And these designs are copycat or the more preferred term 'designer inspired'. It will be uncool to be spotted wearing the same dress as another on the street especially its something you bought online and not from the designer brand itself.

Its good though for those that do not mind. At least now you know that when one site sold out on the design, you can always stalk on other sites


Orange is the new deal?

Everyone loves staple colours like Black White and Grey.

But lately there has been a rise on the liking for other colours. And with the late reincarnation of the 70s fashion, no one can deny the power of colours.

First we all see how Red has become famous, then slowly Mustard colour. It is obvious as you can spot a lot of blogshops selling mustard colour dresses now. 

The latest colour to watch out will be ORANGE. Love it or hate it, everything that Victoria Beckham does, attention is about to be given. Mrs Beckham herself might have just launched Orange to be the next colour to watch out.

Victoria Beckham latest Spring 2012 collection displayed an array of orange colour for her dresses. For someone like her who is actually known to be the Queen of Black colour, it was certainly delightful to see the designer herself venturing for bolder colours.

And it proved to be a hit! A number of celebrities are spotted with her design and they all opted for Orange colour instead of the other darker colours.

And not forgetting Mrs Beckham herself, strutting down in her own design!

Doublewoot tried to keep up the pace and provide the customers with an option for something orange. Sad to say though that the Orange is not really that Orangy. Its more of a reddish orange. I guess its a risk to get garments in orange cause its not a colour acceptable by general.

However, I saw this at Zavia Valora which gave me a shock. WHY? That Orange is BRIGHT ORANGE! Refreshing to the eye indeed and you can be sure that you will stand out in the crowd!

Are you one of the bold ones to try orange? I am!

J’R La bellee

Just a simple review on J’R La bellee.

J’R La bellee is owned by a girl who love something colourful, chicky, sweetness and everything beautiful. [Quoted from their facebook page] 
Their main site is actually the blogshop but they do update their latest collection on facebook as well.

You may want to favourite their site if you like the clothes as I find it difficult to remember their name. If I cant spell it right, google cant get it for me.

Basic information on postage charges
Free postage will be given for purchase of 5 items and above. It was not stated whether it’s a poslaju delivery or a registered mail.

They also give wholesale price for purchase of 10 items and above. So group up with your friends!

Order can be made via their blogshop or PM via fb page.

Their style of clothes are more to casual and bohemian style.

J'R La bellee RM45.00
J'R La bellee RM39.00
J'R La bellee RM40.00

One thing good, PRICE IS CHEAP. Nothing ever goes above RM50.

I believe the model for the site is the owner as well. You can see that from the page owner details on their facebook page.

Since their prices are generally cheap, it is reasonable to bear the postage fee. Only thing you will want to consider is the quality of their dresses.

Anyone a customer of (thinks of how to spell) J’R La bellee? Love to hear from you! 

Just in case you can't find them, here is the link to their blog and facebook page:-

Cocktails & Martinis

Cocktails & Martinis has facebook page and blog. However the main site running is the blogshop (Cocktails & Martinis Blog). Facebook page is more of updates.

Some information about them which can be seen on their facebook page (Cocktails & Martinis Facebook Page)

Contact : email
Updates : every Sunday (9.30pm) and mini update on Thursday (9.30pm)
Bank : Maybank, Public Bank and CIMB
Delivery : FREE POSLAJU delivery nationwide 
Wide range of clothes. You can get casual, working, girlish and cocktail dresses.
Cocktails & Martinis RM65.00
Cocktails & Martinis RM75.00
No mannequin pictures. All dresses are modeled by models. Model is quite standard size, not too slim. Prices generally range from RM60-RM75. Given that they are giving away free poslaju delivery,  I think the prices are fair.

However,pay attention to some of the clothes though as you can see it at other blogshops. Aside from wanting to get the best deal, you have to always remember that it is not a good sign if a lot of other blogshops are selling the same design. This will only mean that there will be more people out there wearing the same dress as you. Well, unless you really fancy that design, then go ahead.

For example, the latest upload at Cocktails & Martinis, this dress is also spotted at Curves Boutique (10th May), IIvory Couture (18th May) and lately Doublewoot (27th May) and who knows which other sites might be selling it later on. 
Curves Boutique - RM85.00 (normal) RM70.00 (online price)
IIvory Couture RM70.00
Doublewoot RM70.00
Doublewoot RM70.00
Cocktails & Martinis RM 75.00
Cocktails & Martinis RM 75.00
Cocktails & Martinis RM 75.00
Cocktails & Martinis hasnt been checking on their competitors? Latest to sell but selling it at the highest price!

And ladies, look at the design of the dress! Pretty YES Special YES but how embarrassing it will be if you saw someone wearing the same dress as well? If it is a plain black dress, you can still get away with it cause its too simple! Glam up with some necklace and belt and you will be safe BUT THIS? Even a kid can see that its the same.

Anyone own this dress and feeling bad now? Sorry mate!
