My first Gmarket box arrived containing 2 black bags, the beige suede jacket, white sheet dress and hey, a blue beanie as a bonus! (which, by the way, doesn’t fit my head, it does fit my fist though.)

The bags are faux-leather so I fully anticipated it to look cheap, but once you carry it a bit, the way it slouches in the right places it really doesn’t look all that bad. Then again I’m very easily pleased – I get happy when I meet a fox in the courtyard, so I may be the wrong person to be writing this review. The suede bolero/jacket thing was a bit of a disappointment though – since it’s single-sheeted, it’s got no lining fabric, so you could see the mediocre stitching. Still, it’s got a very healthy looking sheen to it and the fabric is über light for summer. Gmarket items seem to be quite similar in price and quality to H&M, so that could be a quality reference for those who were wondering. What you pay is what you get, isn’t it in most cases?

Now please excuse me, I must go restock on some sleep as my life is slipping through my fingers and running away with the milkman. Sorry for the dead-ness of late.

  1. i rike yo shewz. and yay for your package! that beige jacket thing looked really cool in the pics, i bet you could still make it like awesome even if the quality is a bit off. and yahhh i did dye my hair. kind of a disaster moment but i guess it’s okay now haha. YOUR hair is getting really long now!!!

  2. Love your bag and your shoes! I think I’m going to need to check Gmarket out.

  3. cuute shoes! 11 pounds? WHUDDD a steal!!! a beanie that fits the fist?? sounds about right for my pea-head.

  4. i like your outfit, very classic. I love online shopping just for the bliss of getting a package. it always feels very exciting. or i may just be easily exitable.

  5. The bags do look nice! I’d like to get a better look at the suede jacket, it sounds lovely despite poor quality, and haha to the beanie, hats never fit my head to begin with, so I can’t imagine how small that one must have bene, maybe you could wear it as a skull cap? justtttt kidding.

  6. you’re right you get what you pay for most of the time anyway. i’m glad you’re branching out from H&M and such. i get excited when i see the lookbooks, but then am disappointed when meet the clothes in real life.

  7. i’m feeling a bit worried for that fox :P
    btw, i really really love the way you’ve studded your bag and i’ve never gotten around to mention it!
    how do you attach the studs? do you have a stud gun or something?

  8. I love the length of that jacket! I’ve been really craving light desaturated garments lately..

  9. I love that bag, and I almost never like bags.

  10. First time commenting! I think like what you said, what you pay is what you get, furthermore alot of online shops like to ‘photoshop’ their stuff to make it seem really fantastic. Most imptly, what you bought kept you satisfied and of course, that you’ll be wearing it in the future! Can’t wait for the next Gmarket package to arrive, those lace shoes…! >.<

  11. have faith in faux leather! i live my life by it!

  12. HOW did you get shoes from Topshop for £11??? Not even their flats are that cheap!

  13. you got topshop shoes for only 11 £ … how did you do that !

  14. what??? just for £11??? omg…. normally a topshop cost me about £60. that’s what i call a real bargain. love you trench which compliments the whole relaxing outfit

  33. very nice pieces!
    i’ve never bought something from gmarket..
    maybe i should start with it~

  34. Are you bombarded with GMarket related emails? I bet, the site as some good shiz.

  35. Haha, maybe you can make a handcuff out of the beanie :P

  36. Thanks for answering my emails! You’re super-sweet. :)

    Also, I really like the way the two bags look — I think I might be getting something from GMarket… I can deal with H&M quality.

  37. SOOO glad you are happy with the jacket! I’ve changed venues, so if you want to visit me in my new neighborhood, please stop by. I’m always on the lookout for great stuff, and “mint condition” is my top priority! Thanks so much for the shout out, and I’ll pop on over to the other site and we’ll discuss that customs charge! Hope to chat with you again, you are absolutely brilliant in your style vision! Nina
