Gmarket Haul and February Giveaways

I finally have time to post my Gmarket haul! I made an order in the last week of January but shipping was slower this time around because some of the sellers were a little bit slow to domestically deliver the items. So during that period I stalked my EMS tracking # RELIGIOUSLY. The F5 button was my favorite key! I literally refreshed the page 10 times in an hour.

I purchased three dresses, a pair of shoes and a bag. The shipping surprised me because it cost almost the same as my last purchase....

 My favorite mascot!! =P
Again, the packages came in a massive box! I guess it keeps the items from getting crushed and damaged. The items were each packaged neatly in their own thick plastic wrappings (the ones where you may have a hard time pulling apart without a pair of scissors). 

 Items unwrapped!

To be honest, the quality of the purse/bag disappointed me. It felt so flimsy and the inside lining was made of something slightly thicker than wrapping paper. When you place things inside it, it makes crackling/wrapping paper sounds! (go crinkle some wrapping paper and you get the idea....). The seller is 오렌지노블 and have appeared to no longer ship internationally or currently have none in stock. Also the colors of the stock photos are slightly deceptive since the purse I ordered was suppose to be off white/ivory with a tint of peach, however the one that arrived was more gold.



I love these shoes! They're made of suede and attract dust particles very easily (you can tell from the photo as well) but I think they're very high quality and the heels feel very sturdy. The only thing that irks me is the buckles. They're not the normal buckle down ones but kind of resemble paper clips where you hook one end onto another. It's difficult to explain but I find that many asian manufacturers use these types of "buckles" for their shoes... I guess it's more cost efficient?! But there's a risk that they can "unbuckle" more easily.

The seller is ★블루베리★ and has tons of other great shoes! I'm definitely going to check them out again for heels.

I've only had the chance to wear one of the dresses I purchased and I don't have actual photos so I am going to use stock photos from Gmarket.


Out of all the dresses I purchased, I am most pleased with this one... it also resembles the stock photo the most =P I haven't purchased from this seller before (★캣츠걸★) but I think the sizes run small! I normally wear small but I purchased the medium size and still feel/look fat in it! It's veryyyyy tight fitting but the quality's great. It doesn't look cheap like some clothing from Asia and is actually made in Korea! (I actually purchased some items from Gmarket from sellers in Korea that had items made in China!) Looking at the ratings for this seller, their items may be a hit and miss as some people were disatisfied with their purchases, however I'm going to purchase from them again since they have really cute and fashionable dresses!

 I purchased these two dresses from the same seller and was slightly disappointed with the quality.  The material was still decent but it could have been better for the prices I've paid. The beads on the white top were coming lose and paint were coming off. Also the dresses had a funky odour to them when I first took them out of the packaging. This seller (디데이) definitely purchases their dresses from different manufacturers because the dresses were from different brands. They offer many other styles of dresses which are also very cute, but I would caution on the quality of the dresses.

Overall, this Gmarket haul drastically differ from my other order as there were no misunderstanding. Service was efficient!... and writing this review makes my finger itch to go on the site again... my poor wallet!
