Hey Guys, hope you are enjoying the weekend. It's raining out here. So, the weather is dull and gloomy and that is exactly how i feel right now.
Today is more or less like a haul post, same as last week. If you've read my previous post Shopping Haul - Zara, you will remember that I have been doing a lot of shopping and for the first time I purchased something from an online store based in Philippines.
I am very skeptical when it comes to buying from abroad. All these doubts creeps up that i may never receive the items and if i do receive the goods, the quality may not be good and so on.
But, I am very impressed with the service received from Tomato (yup, that is the name of the store :D) and the quality is just amazing. I am beyond impressed actually.
So lets get to the items that i purchased, shall we?
These items are from the Camille Co collection. Camille is a fashion blogger, Model, Stylist and a Model. She has a blog called Camille Tries To Blog
Do check her blog out and let me know what you think in the comment section below.
She designs the most beautiful wedding gowns ever. She is a fierce lady and is not afraid of clashing prints or bold colours. In fact, she loves pairing prints on prints and does it beautifully. If you have problems wearing prints, you should definitely check her blog out for tips and ideas.
The first one is a dress. when i saw her wear this dress, i instantly fell in love with it.
The sheer striped shoulders, the faux leather hemline which is big this season, the wrap around skirt effect and a statement belt to accentuate the waistline.
It is a perfect LBD and the latest addition to my ever growing collection, which i am very proud of. The last one was a jacquard dress with cross back bow details.
The second purchase is this Printed top. It's called the Paradise Print of the mixed media print. I love the back
The black and white striped reminds me of the referees in the wrestling ring.
My mum and I were crazy about wrestling, we loved Rock and Chris Benoit, Mama Sita, Ray Mysterio, Rob Van Damn. The best fights were the girls, Lita and Mama Sita were my favorites. Those were the days.
Sorry, got carried away over there. The top has cute pink cuffs, so it adds a pop of colour to the monochromatic back.
The outfits cost 1,800 PHP (Philippines pesos) which converted into British pounds is roughly £27. That is a BARGAIN!!! I paid more on postage but still it was a bargain. Because the total came to just over £60 that is including import duties.
You have the option to pay by pay pal or by card, i chose pay pal because it's less hassle and straight forward.
What do you think of my purchases? Do you like them?
I can't wait to try them on at the moment i am stuck indoors but i am sure, i will find a reason to wear this beautiful outfits.
Oh, i forgot, i got a cute lil bow necklace free and a 15% discount voucher and a sweet little note from the Tomato team. So all in all, my first time turned out to be a good one. I will definitely recommend Tomato and Camille co because the service has been exceptional.
The reason i went ahead with these purchases was because of Camille. I have been following her blog for a long time and was comfortable and interacting with her on her blog. I knew that if i needed help with something, she would be there to help.
What about you guys? Do you often shop online and if so, do you buy from foreign stores?
If you do, how comfortable are you and does anything put you off? If you don' t buy from foreign stores, is there a reason why you don't? Please let me know in the comment section below.
If you have any tips or advice for me, I would love to hear from you.
Thank you so much for reading and hope you guys have a fantastic weekend.
Loads of love and hugs xxx
