    What exactly is that hat called? I forgot the name of it and it's really popular in Japan. Gah!


    Idk either but when I search it up on ebay to see if they had any, I used "Japanese style flat top straw hat" or something like that =) ... the main word is 'flat top' I guess.

    Sorry to cut your post short, but was wondering if you could model the hat and if you could measure the diameter of the "head space"...er the inside? How's the material btw? I was just looking for a hat like this and seeing as WD has it pretty cheap, would like to see if it's any good^^

    As to how to make it flat...try stacking books on the edges and leave it for a few days?


    the diameter of the head space is around 17 cm
    the material is straw as said on the site but it's not hard/stiff (that's why the brim is curvy). They fold it up in a plastic bag and stuffed it into the box so when I got it, it didn't really look like the stock photo. I used an iron to try to straighten out the brim and make the top part flat cus it was not flat when it came x__x
    but the cute thing is the bow on the side though =)

    hat appearance is true to photo besides me being displeased about it being squished into the package box and how the material is not so stiff. The glasses are exactly like stock photo ... and so are the following :lol: The packaging is great cus they come in plastic case boxes :D :D :D

    true to stock photo; fits well; super cute; love it but not gonna lie, I noticed that one shoulder strap was slightly longer than the other, but when worn, there's no difference so that's not a major problem, don't really need to mend that myself since it's only like 1 cm difference at most. there were also threads on the inside but you can snip those away easily in under a minute or so ^_^

    here's the white version too

    http://www.wholesale-dress.net/goods.php?id=1129024
    wi57cw.jpg
    14jqoe9.jpg

    there were no problems on the white one; had threads on the inside too I believe but that's no biggie either.

    The following items I can't model on myself cus they're my friends' part of the order but I'll provide the real life photos =)

    http://www.wholesale-dress.net/goods.php?id=1127608
    2zs88j5.jpg
    xeljbq.jpg

    the pattern is different but this is still a lovely dress. very well made and it's even padded on the chest area so you don't need to wear a bra if you don't want to.

    30t3x3m.jpg

    the roses are different from the stock photo but it's still pretty cute. the fabric feels somewhat thin and rough but not a big problem, still wearable.

    http://www.wholesale-dress.net/goods.php?id=1121862
    ev6gzk.jpg
    r0xyeo.jpg

    this is excellent quality. the material is very soft and smooth :wub:

    21v23p.jpg
    23uf09e.jpg

    true to stock photo; the design is supposed to be a 3D heart shape I believe but you can hardly tell it's a heart without inspecting it up close

    http://www.wholesale-dress.net/goods.php?id=1124291
    oifx3b.jpg
    o5vuj9.jpg

    true to stock photo but in real life it's not really that great looking cus the butterflies are pretty ehhhhh. looks like a toy you can get out of those 50 cent vending machines.


    Overall, definitely recommend the sunglasses and apparel ^_^ This was a very good batch! Thank goodness for the clothes not being all whack in terms of fitting & material quality!

    Hi everyone first post here~ I'm still in the process of planning to order from wholesale sites..since currently I'm just saving up for college classes aah..but I've ordered a few clothes and accessories from Zipia/Dahong, Lemoncookie, Candy Pop, and Sechuna I think that's all..some of the things I've ordered from those sites are in stock so I guess I'll find pictures and see if anyone's interested in reviews :]


    @burgerxjuice: It's a can can hat! :D I've always wanted one of those..but I look kinda silly in lots of hats haha Have you tried soaking the brim in warm/hot water then letting it sit on a flat surface? That could probably let it flatten out..? Also I love those floral dresses you bought! So cute!! :D

    I received a call from them Saturday morning and told me that I had to pay customs once they delivered the package to me. Got the package same day in the afternoon.

    If you don't have a credit card to do instant payments through paypal, try get one of those prepaid ones and put that into your paypal as your backup credit card. Even if you just put like $1 in the prepaid cc.. paypal still accepts it. Once you have that set up and your bank accounts already attached to your paypal, you can do instant payments anytime ^-^;

    Another option is to ask someone else w/ paypal to help you out.

    For AFW.. I think 10-15 pieces is best to get at one batch to get the most out of shipping. That would at least put your pieces to about $7-10 each. (:

    Hey guys! I just got my order from happy-wholesale.com and super excited ! At first I was really scared to order from this website because it's fairly new and not a lot of people know about it i guess. But I ordered anyways. But this was just a trial order. I ordered 4 shirts and a shoe. But I ordered the shoes separately and it's currently on its way here ^_^ for this order I chose FedEx. You don't need to wear a shirt under any of these !

    Came in a fedEx Box,

    Inside was a black plastic bag thing,

    Inside the black plastic bag thing, are the shirts with their own plastics.

    Height: 5'2 [157 cm]
    Weight: 110 [50 kg]

    Excuse my hair, face and ugly boxers. It's in the morning ahha.

    This shirt is really sexy. I got the black one, the cut in the front can really give you a big bust ;)

    I like this a lot, but i wanted it to be a bit looser. It's like a semi off the shoulder for me tho. I also wanted it to be longer, but it was just as long as a regular tee. Overall it's very cute and good quality!

    as long as your bank account is connected to your paypal, its fine. paypal will just take money directly from your available funds + bank account.

    perhaps it looks that way cus I'm pretty short, 5'0 and around 95-100lbs. Did you compare the two measurements between the one you bought versus the link I provided... maybe there might be a difference? but I remember there was a post a while ago someone posted on this item as well and she says it's also too short for her too.

    ^ it comes with these keychains, but I personally find them tacky and took them off

    I give both a 9 / 10! They're both very similar as they're the same brand ("SkyBlue"), so I'll just write one review. They're great bags! This is my first time buying something online from an asian wholesale type website, so I can't really compare, but YesStyle didn't disappoint. The fake leather looks great I didn't find any defects or anything. The quality is good for the price, though one thing you need to be careful of is the long cross-body straps. They're pretty thin, and I can see them ripping in the future if you load too much stuff in the bags. Size-wise, the gray one is just big enough to easily hold a binder (I put one inside for the pictures to hold the shape up), and the black one is smaller but a lot roomier than I expected.

    Haha.. yeah you're shorter than me so that makes more sense :P
    And yeah I was the one that posted it before. I also commented on the site about it. Guess there isn't much difference on the styles then ):

    I have a guestion and I hope someone can help me >____<

    I want to order some things from Gmarket including these pants : http://aura1.img.or.kr/sensation10.html

    But since I'm caucasian, my hips and legs are a bit larger than asian girls.....But, the thing I was wondering about is that the size table says that the 'waist' is 75, 80, etc cm. But the pants don't actually go to the waist, so what do they mean by waist in the size table? do they mean the actual waist or the top of the pants? Because my waist is 61 cm and the part where the top of the pants will be is like 80 cm......


    Someone help me please :) Thanx! ^^
