As some of you may know, I am a huge AliExpress fan. What is AliExpress? AliExpress is a online store where you can buy so many different products (think of it as an Asian Amazon), often at lower prices. If you want to be ballin on a budget, this is definitely the place to shop. There are some pro’s and con’s to shopping on AliExpress but I’m here to help you, so check out my helpful tips about how to shop on AliExpress!
PROS for Shopping on AliExpress
- Super cheap finds! Buy more for your money.
- Remember to buy only from Established Sellers! These are sellers who have good feedback.
- Wide selection! Remember, don’t expect super high quality for a cheap price. You get what you pay for, but in my experience, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by many items being in great quality.
- Buyer protection! You’ll receive a Full Refund if you don’t receive your order with a Full or Partial Refund if the product arrives but is entirely different than what was described. The shop will have “Buyer Protection” in the description with the amount of days it can take for the product to arrive. If it’s been longer than that amount (usually 55-60 days), then you qualify for a Full Refund.
CONS for Shopping on AliExpress
- False reviewers! Make sure to read them thoroughly and look through their photos.
- Shipping can take a long time. Usually anywhere from 14-21 days.
- Sizing can be off! Know your measurements in inches and centimeters before online shopping. Be sure to read complete item details/description & I recommend to absolutely read the previous customer comments in order to purchase the correct size. Most clothing items run a size smaller in Asia.
Now that you know some tips and tricks on how to shop on AliExpress, I’ve decided to take it a step further and TRY AND BUY, so that you don’t have to. I’ve uploaded the best and favorite pieces that I’ve purchased myself to help you find some trendy pieces for cheap. (With my honest review.) Hope you and your wardrobe enjoy!
|The Star Print Dress
Julia’s Review : This dress comes in ONE size only. The measurements are recorded on the product page site. I am a true size small and this dress fit me perfectly. The fabric quality was good, soft, and came just as described. I’ve gotten a lot of great compliments with this dress.
