TaoBaoSpree Review ♡

 ☆.。.:*・°☆.。.:*・°☆.。.:*・°☆.。.:*・°☆

Hello everyone! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

Yesterday my eagerly awaited package from TaoBaoSpree arrived! So, because of the great success and simplicity of placing the order, I thought I'd write a review! ☆彡

I'm sure you're all familiar with TaoBao already and know that it is often referred to as the Chinese eBay! And that's basically what it is, (a variety of goods, and a lot at extremely cheap prices!) the only negative being that they do not ship outside of China~ So that's when agents come into it! 

An agent allows you to place an order on items from TaoBao. Usually, you pay in 2 installments! Firstly, when they buy the item from TaoBao and have it shipped to them (plus a small fee for using them) and secondly, when they ship it on to you (plus another small fee for using them)! (≧∇≦)

I've known about TaoBao for around 6 months or more now and last month I finally got the courage to give it a go! My TaoBao agent of choose, TaoBaoSpree!

TaoBaoSpree has a very professional page and process of ordering. They keep you informed throughout the the order, including cost, availability and status of your order. They're also very friendly~

I ordered 2 items from TaoBao. A Milklim beanie in blue and a Creamy Mami crop top!

Milklim Beanie:

It's Milklim~ What more can I say?

The beanie itself is warm, comfortable and fits perfectly. The pins however, aren't very well made. When I tried to pin them to the beanie, a couple of stars detached from the metal pin backing. This is due to bad glue. NOT THE AGENTS FAULT. It is the sellers~ It's easily fixable, and not too big of deal.

Overall, I highly recommend you use TaoBao Spree! They're trustworthy, helpful, they care, they're kind they accept PAYPAL and cost efficient~ The order took only 2 weeks from order placement, to arrival~ I'll DEFINITELY be shopping on TaoBao with them again! ♡

A big thank you to the lovely Candy for helping me with my order, I hope you liked the review~ :3 ♡

I haven't had the chance to wear the crop top yet because of Melbourne's shitty weather, but I did get to wear the beanie yesterday!

  1. Awesome! I really like what you've purchased. Packaging seems to be thoughtful.

    I would vouch for http://www.chinabuy.com.au and they don't charge a service fee if you're in Australia.
