Online purchases, rated

This is a sub-post to my other blog post titled: Ebay Purchases, rated. I thought it would benefit people to see what I bought online and if it is, in fact a good representation of the photos they show, in order to sell their product.

The advertised ring.

The ring on my finger. It’s really a glossy old color and very shiny like it showed online. Note: I got a size 6, but it happens to fit on my middle finger and ring finger comfortably (my ring finger is like 5.5 and my middle is about 7). What’s cute about this ring is that you can order a super small size and wear this ring in a very trendy way. On your next knuckle, up by the tips of your fingers.

Seller: jewelleryplaza
Item: Lady Party Ball Jewelry Simple Style 3-in-1Silver Gold GP Fashion Ring
Paid: $0.99 + $5.00 shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 16 business days from when I placed the order, to when it arrived.
My opinion: I don’t think I’ll wear the gold or silver rings on their own but the ‘rose gold’ one is pretty on its own. Also, stacked how I have it is also my favorite way to wear the rings.

Seller: Tatame77 on Ebay
Item: Pink/White Korea Ladies Womens Chiffon Top Blouse
Paid: $13.26 + $2.99 shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: Hong Kong
Delivery: 6 business days from when I placed the order, to when it arrived.
My opinion: Holy moses. The fastest shipping ever from Hong Kong. Six business days. The top was really pretty online, a nice peachy pink sort of color. Very faint. In person it’s more of a true baby pink. Though, it is quite nice and you can see how it fits on me, above. I don’t know if I’d purchase this in a store if I saw it on a hanger. I wish it were more peachy like it was shown on the model.

Paid: $96.88 Worth the price? Yes
Location: USA
Delivery: 2 business days from when I placed the order, to when it arrived.
My opinion: These are way more comfier than I had imagined! I love Seychelle’s shoes, my flats from them have lasted years (purchased in 2006!), so I didn’t mind dropping the bills on these wedges.

So my MaeMovement bracelets came in! Remember when I blogged about them a few weeks ago? They actually arrived on my Birthday three days ago.

The bracelets are all so hugely unique and every single one is different. I ordered three bracelets from this selection:

Deep red, solid aqua, and fusia (I’m not sure why it’s not called Fuchsia).

These are the bracelets on my wrists. I won’t be pairing them together because they just don’t go well together, and of course I knew that and just had other plans for them. Like my little combo below!

I’ve paired pink (fusia) one on my wrist with this stack:

MaeMovement bracelets are sold by a Mother-Daughter duo located in the United States. They sell these fair trade bracelets made from fine glass beads which are made in Nepal. All beading is done in the comfort of their homes or on rooftop decks when they have nice weather.  A portion of MaeMovement proceeds will also help to sponsor local charities and causes through their commitment to fundraising and creating awareness.

These bracelets are made from the finest glass and sterling silver beads in the world, the bracelets are carefully hand crocheted bead by bead and reflect a cultural craft of beauty and quality. The bracelets will fit many wrist sizes as they roll onto your wrists. They come in over 900 colors and a variety of beads, from flat matte finishes to high gloss metallic’s and iridescence.

The MaeMovement business is founded on practices and principals which supports and pays fair trade wages to our artisans. This improves the quality of their lives and creates opportunities to break cycles of poverty, neglect and abuse.

If you are interested in purchasing bracelets or would like information on retail, wholesale, home parties, fundraisers, custom and bulk orders, contact MaeMovement Mother Daughter duo: Haley or Dee via facebook at Mae-Movement. Or purchase directly from their site on

I purchased these bracelets myself, and just wanted to support the great cause.

Don’t forget about my HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME Giveaway. Tons of prizes to be won:

I bought three of the most adorable bracelets from a jewelry maker last night when I first discovered their site. Talk about spur of the moment buys.

Anyway, I wanted to show you guys what the bracelets look like, online. I hope they fit my miniscule wrists when they arrive. Bracelets are usually 7.5″ long, for a regular sized wrist. Mine, was measured not too long ago when my nephew was 3. It was the same size as his.

So! Here they are. Beauties, right?These are the ones I purchased: Deep Red, Aqua, “Fusia” (Fuchsia?)

Buy them on

I’ll let you know what they look like in person, once they arrive.
