And then the next few days I found myself adding four new items to my shopping cart and shopped away! www.zaful.com is a online apparel and accessories shop that I visit once in a while. Only though that recently that I get to experience purchasing items from them. I like my first Zaful haul that I was not able to fight the urge to go for seconds.
Dotted Sheer Chiffon Maxi Dress
I have been wanting to have a piece of clothing made of Plumeti cloth. Plumeti cloth is a fine lightweight dress fabric of cotton, wool, or rayon that is woven with raised dots or figures on a plain background producing a feathery or embroidered effect. So when I saw this at Zaful I knew right there and then that I got to have it. And this one is a dress! Which is way better steal than getting a blouse made of the same material.
It is made of sheer material with embroidered dots. This type of cloth is known as Plumeti . I got this in size Medium the overall fit is OK but the length of the entire dress is too long so I have to alter it to my height and so as the sleeves. I also like the bell shape of the sleeves which for me is very feminine and a little vintage-y.
I love that I can wear it on a casual day pairing it with lace up sandals; or for some semi formal event with strappy heels -- which makes it very versatile. The fabric though is a bit stiff and not as flowy as I thought it would be, but I haven't washed the dress yet, maybe after, we will see if putting it in the washing machine and after drying if the fabric will soften.
I also love the fabric belt it came with, it is made of the same fabric as the dress by the way. The top part has no lining though so it looks like I going to use a tube top underneath it; the bottom part has lining which is great. Either way I still live this dress to bits and I am glad I purchased it.
Three Layered Pendant Necklace
The gold and sky blue combination looks super nice and stylish. It also falls perfectly and the length is just right for my low neckline tops and dresses. This would give that oomph factor for any monochromatic outfit.
Turquoise Decorated Body Chain
This is the second body chain that I got online. The first one doesn't have a cute bead detail like this one. It is so simple because it only has single chains wrapping around the body, like what they say, less is more.
I love the super cute turquoise bead detail at the center. I will probably use this while wearing a swimsuit and the bead will blend right in with the color of the sea. It is made of alloy and looks durable enough. I just hope like the other jewelries I bought at Zaful that it won't tarnish that easily when it get soaked on water. Because the first one I bought from another site is now color bronze.
Moon Elephant Ethnic Style Rings
This is the third time I got a ring set online. Buying in sets brings so much savings and gives you more worth for your buck. For only I got 7 pieces of rings already. I love the bohemian or tribal feel of these rings. Especially the turquoise or aqua blue plus the gold color combination. If you have noticed that the jewelries that I got for this haul have the same color palette, it is because I will try to wear two or a couple of them once in a while.
Moreover, I like that the rings have different sizes or diameter since I can use some of them as finger rings instead of the usual. Just like the trends that I see online and on other fashionable peeps.
They are super lightweight and made of alloy, which kind of concerns me because they might break easily. I have used them thrice already and so far so good. Though the inside of the rings have already tarnish a bit and turned a little bronze-ish. This is maybe because I have acidic skin. But still they have retained their nice appearance.
I like every piece but I have to say I don't like the elephant and the one with the symbol. The rest I've been using more often. Yet all in all I am pretty pleased with this ring set.
By the way, my package was sent via EMS (just like my first Zaful haul) which is faster than the regular post mail. The items came in a box instead of the regular plastic packet. Which for me is nice because the clothes and accessories are safe from damage. The only downside is that the box was held by customs for inspection and I have to pick it up and pay for taxes and duties on top of the postal fee. But I guess that only happens in my country. Either way, I pretty much love every item included in my second haul from Zaful. So I am pretty much contented.
