Bargain Heaven: My Aliexpress Goodies!

28 January 2015

Hello!

As I've said many times before, I don't like spending money on designer brands just because I simply don't see the point. I've always believed you can find just as good products in high street stores and people who think otherwise just like to throw money away. But of course there are times that I see people with all these lovely new designer things and I have to admit I do get a little jealous!

A few months ago, probably last summer to be honest, I saw a post on Victoria's Vintage about some faux designer goodies she'd brought from an online China website. Now I don't know about you but I'm not new to this buying from China because I've done it so many times before on eBay and Aliexpress is just a bigger version of little eBay stores. 

Since last Summer, I've been ordering a few things here and there and of course I thought I would show you all!

Michael Kors Bag | $22.98
I LOVE this bag! When I ordered this bag I didn't expect much and I actually regretted it as soon as the order went through but as soon as it came I was relieved. Although you can tell it's not a real MK bag, I still love it and having been able to "test" out the fake bag, it's made me consider actually buying the real thing.

Michael Kors Bag |
This Michael Kors bag I'm not so keen on. First of all I ordered an all over black bag like the one above but when it arrived it was this very bright blue and black bag. I had to open a dispute to get it changed and finally after 2 months of waiting, they finally closed the case in my favour and I got to keep the bag. I'm still not that sure on it and I'm tempted to sell but I'm keeping it for the time being and hoping I grow to love it!

Cat Earring & Necklace Set | $7.99
The crazy cat lady came out of me when I saw this and I knew I had to have it. It does look a little cheap and gaudy when you wear them but I love them so much I really don't care.

I wasn't going to bother buying make-up or beauty products because although I love a good bargain Michael Kors back, I don't fancy putting fake products on my face because I don't know what's inside them. Regardless though I did decide to pick up this mini travel size primer. I didn't really know what to expect but it wasn't as bad as I thought. I haven't really used it much so I haven't had a good chance to test it out yet.

Another crazy cat lady item and really how could I resist? I'm never really sure of the sizes when ordering online and especially from China but I went with an XL and it fitted really nicely.

marc jacobs

This was a product I'd seen over on Victoria's post and I have to admit although she said it got really filthy after a few wears, I still had to have this watch! I love Marc Jacobs watches but I don't wear watches enough to make me feel okay with cashing out on over a hundred pound. I do love this watch and I'd happily buy another when this one gets a bit tatty.
rose gold necklace set
I brought this as a little stocking filler for my mom (hence the stock picture) and I have to admit this picture does not do it justice and I'm quite tempted to order myself one. I know it probably won't keep it's rose gold tone for longer than a few wears but it is a pretty adorable little set.

Although some of Aliexpresses products are hit and miss, I'd still recommend taking a look as you can definitely find some nice and interesting products for a bargain price tag!
