Lovelyshoes.net, MissGuided, Dorothy Perkins haul and review


Lovelyshoes.net is a Chinese-based online store that wholesales shoes and bags, and I've reviewed stuff from there before on my blog. The shoes are really cheap (like $10-$30) so it's great for people on a budget! However it's copped its fair share of bad reviews on the internet for the quality and customer service. My personal experience hasn't been as bad as others though, and although there are some 'misses' in this haul I still think they were kind of expected for the price I paid.

I got 4 pairs of shoes (the black ones with the metallic heel are from MissGuided) for about $51 plus shipping of about $49 (yes, it's almost the same price as the shoes themselves!) = $100.
Shipping to Australia took about 2 weeks.

As for sizing, I always order Euro size 37 from Chinese wholesale websites which seems to be pretty consistent and fit me perfectly.

(more under the link!)


Lovelyshoes.net haul


 Leopard print heels (link here)
size: 37
price: $14.73

Exactly what I expected! These were my favourite from my lovelyshoes.net haul. They didn't look cheap, and were comfortable. I think these would be great to pair with a plain black outfit (getting ready for the cold season!)

5/5


White heels (link here)

size: 37
price: $14.73

And now for my least favourite from the haul! These shoes are actually plastic! For some reason I thought they were going to be matte (probably because I have really similar shoes in green and pink and they were that matte material). Unfortunately I don't really like the shiny, plastic sheen because it looks cheap, although it's alright far away.

Around the ankle strap there's a loose thread but that can be snipped off. They are what you expect for the price though, so not complaining! In terms of comfort, the head is a bit tight but I like how sturdy the heel is.

3/5



 Black thin heels (link here)
size: 37
price: $10.78

Pretty much what I expected from the pictures, except for the velcro ankle closure! Yes, it's velcro! It's a bit off-putting but once you get them on, you can't really tell that there's velcro there, thank goodness! The low heel makes these quite comfy.

4.5/5

Red heels (link here)
size: 37
price: $10.52

The first thing that popped out at me was the material- it's quite coarse and stiff. In the pictures it looked smooth, and maybe I'm just picky but the rough material kind of bothers me a bit! It's not actually rough inside, but the outer just reminds me a bit of sandpaper. Putting that aside, these are quite comfy and versatile, and I like the colour!

4.5/5

MissGuided haul
Neon yellow satchel bag, metallic heel black shoes

I got these 2 items with a very generous $70 voucher I had from MissGuided! The satchel I got just to have a yellow bag in my life, and will certainly be pulled out for spring towards the end of the year, or maybe randomly during winter haha.

Dorothy Perkins haul

Envelope clutches- 10.50 pounds each ~ $15.8 AUD
Shipping to Australia = $10.50 pounds ~ $15.8AUD

I randomly found some gorgeous clutches from Dorothy Perkins whilst online browsing, and I'm so glad I clicked through because I came away with these 2 gorgeous purchases! I've never actually heard of DP before but it's a relatively inexpensive, British clothing brand that seems to cater to an older clientele than the stores I'm used to (from what I can see). Nonetheless there are some really lovely, stylish pieces anyone of any age can wear. I might go back and hunt for some good work wear items.

I didn't take a picture of the packaging, but everything was just so nicely and neatly wrapped and organised- I was really impressed! I really love the quality of the two bags so I look forward to ordering more from Dorothy Perkins in the future. I love trying out a brand I had never heard of before, and being pleasantly surprised in the end! :)



I have another post coming up with all the MAC lipsticks I received via HopShopGo (just so I don't have to pay the stupidly inflated Aus price!) Can't wait to show you guys all the pretty new colours. And thanks everyone so much for the kind feedback on my bikini post!! I'm inspired to be less anxious about it and maybe even do another one towards the end of the year! :)

  12. Cute pairs! I always love seeing girls in heels but I hate wearing them. I'm a flats girl.

  13. Love your leopard heels, MissGuided items and most of all these DP clutches! I have heard of them before, and visited site quite a lot, but never ordered.. I might have to change that soon ;) x
    In case you want to try out some European beauty online shops, I highly recommend Fragrance Direct. (I'm not sure about the shipping cost & time to Australia, but I've been pleased with the service overseas to Finland) It's British company like Dorothy Perkins. Just made order there yesterday, you can take a look at my blog :) All the prices are SO great.

    I hope you're having a lovely start to this new week x

    Indie by heart

  22. I must check out this site, I cannot believe the prices. My favourites are the red heels, they look amazing. I love what I have seen of Dorothy Perkins but I have never bought anything from there. I must do sometime. Thanks for your email. I only just realised I haven't replied. I must do that tomorrow. I'm so sorry.

  23. There are so many shoes!! The red heels from Lovelyshoes do look like they have a soft material in your photos- would have never guessed that they were rough :/ I love the colour of them though!
    And those clutches are gorgeous. I love them both- and I really like the scalloped edges too

  24. I love your new shoes, especially the red and the white ones are so beauty!

  34. The leopard ones are definitely my favourite too, they look much more expensive than the tiny price you paid! I think the others are actually all pretty good considering the super low prices, here you can spend twice that or more for a similar quality shoe. I always see so many nice, cheap shoes on websites like this that I'd love to try out, but unfortunately I have huge size 40 feet & they never go upto my size!

  35. Wow, in love with the missguided ones with the metallic heel! Gorgeous!

  36. Izzy, I have never heard of the store Dorothy Perkins but I am truly madly in love with those two clutches. They cant be any lovelier and especially the Price Point is super interesting. Thank you so much for sharing this great store with us, always excited to get to know new ones.
    According to chinese wholesale or even chinese online store I can only recommend not buying anything as I really made bad experience. Of course if you purachse cheap items the Quality can be very good obviously. But they have send me wrong sizes and didnt even take them back, so that was really ridiculous plus they have smaller sizes that dont true size to european size. And the shipping costs are so high that I rather buy a higher Quality shoe. But however the red heels are super sweet and will look amazing on you I am sure. Cant wait to see what they look on you Izzy. And now I go over to Dorothy and look at their clutches, I Need a really Special one for my best friends wedding.

    Have a lovely day dear :-)

    1. hi Ani, I'm so sorry to hear you had such a negative experience with these Chinese wholesale stores! it's definitely a hit or miss and unfortunately when it's a miss customer service can be quite poor.

      hope you ended up finding a beautiful clutch! :)

  40. I love the heels you picked out from Lovely Shoes! I haven't purchased from them in a while since it really is a hit or miss but I placed a big order one time and their customer service really annoyed me. The quality wasn't that great either.

    The floral envelope clutch you purchased looks so pretty! Absolutely love it.
