Trash Talk

I posted something on 4 shopping sites selling the same dress and  received massive feedback. Some thanking me cause they do not know about it and well of course, some not so positive responses.

Since this Anonymous chose to comment publicly, I decided to state my opinion out as well.

Read these comments found under the post One Dress 4 Sites. Smarty pants decided that shoppers shall go for high fashion designer brands if you want exclusive garments.  
Well hello Smarty Pants. I am thinking you are either one very very fair person or happen to be one of the friends or maybe the owner of one of the online sites that were being reviewed.

First of all, YOU GUESS ITS NOT FAIR? So even you think that there is a possibility that it is fair? If you guess its not fair, the other guess is that it is fair, am I right?

Second, BAN? Who am I to ban other brands? And have I ever mentioned the word BAN for those online shopping sites?

Third, I dont even know if you thought about it before commenting. VINCCI? Seriously? Do they even sell dress? Your example does not stand at all. If you are so smart, find one design from MNG Esprit Guess and Giordano that is the same. I will then go ahead and BAN them since you think I can do it.

Fourth, "difference of those boutiques and the brands mentioned?" OMGEE really? I need to explain that to you? Those brands are first of all BRAND. Boutique is a SHOP. 

Fifth, everyone wants their penny spent to be worth, be it a cheap deal or a designer brand. Well of course if one can afford to go for designer brand, I do not think they will really care much of what others are talking reviewing or selling. So for shoppers who buy online, they still want a good deal. Unless you are speaking as a seller, then it is different. 

Sixth, if you can say that you like the dress and will still buy them despite other sites are selling it, what is the point of your comment? Isn't it a bit conflicting?

Seventh, oh good, so you attend a lot of events. Please be a doll and update us if you see any dress from an online shopping site in any events you attended, that case, I am sure the readers will be more than happy to know.

Here is my humble reply to the comments.

Received the same identical comments on 2 different posts. This was found on the Cocktails & Martinis post. What a good job you did as well Smarty Pants anonymous, copy and paste your own comments.

(ps : check on the time) 

And hey, just in case you missed out, I did state that if one is really interested with a particular design, they are always entitled to buy what they want. Afterall, its their cash, not mine.

Next time if you want to comment negative things suggesting me to ban brands, either because you want'to be fair' or 'to stand up for your favourite online sites', don't hide behind the shield of anonymous. 


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)

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!


Attire Attic v Cocktails Martinis

Hello lovelies, anyone of you happen to love this dress? 

A lovely flare dress with lace detail at the top. Gives you a feminine and girly look at the same time.

I spotted 2 online sites selling it. Attire Attic and Cocktails & Martinis.

Here is the one from Attire Attic

Attire Attic - RM62.00

Attire Attic - RM62.00
 And here is the same dress at Cocktails & Martinis.

Cocktails & Martinis - RM65.00
Both are selling the same brown colour. 

Cocktails & Martinis have Black colour while Attire Attic have soft pink!

Difference of the price is not a lot, just RM3.00. 

However on postage, both provide the same rate for Poslaju which is RM6.00 for one piece of dress. Attire Attic allows you the option of registered post at the price of RM3.00. 

Cocktails & Martinis do not give free postage. Attire Attic do but you will need to purchase 5 pieces and above (do note that the free postage is registered mail and not Poslaju). 

Well, you do the math! ;)
