Impossible to Buy

There's this blogshop whom i totally love but sad to say, i never or couldn't buy anything from her. Her collections are absolutely great. I love her clothes. I can say that it's almost impossible to buy things from her. The reason? It's always SOLD OUT or ALL RESERVED. Yes there are available stuff but it would be the ugliest top of the update.

Her updates are usually Sunday night. So there was this one time i waited on her page for the whole Sunday night and i keep clicking on the 'Refresh' button every 5 mins interval. Yes i was so desperate. I even had my email page there to standby. True enough after several clicks of 'Refresh', her updates came up. And to my dismay or rather unbelievably THE CLOTHES ARE MARKED ALL RESERVED.

I totally couldn't believe my eyes. What is wrong with her?? Why update when you have already reserved the clothes for your close friends or return customer. But surely blog sellers at least have one piece for every design and colour. I don't believe that her buyers are even quicker than me as i was totally hogging the computer.

The next week of update, i did the same thing. Again the same thing. ALL RESERVED. ALL SOLD OUT. NON-RESTOCKABLE.
Sometimes only certain items are restockable. Her collections are awesome, her pictures are artistic. I can see that she has put effort in pairing her clothes with nice accessories. Every item posted would have an almost essay long description. But so what?? It's always that the item that i wanted wouldn't be available. Or i can say, MOST of her items are never available.

There's always a shout out for her customers in every update saying that her items are as usual extremely limited. I think she should just make her blog a private one so that it don't give me hopes.

Call me obsessed. But this is so true. Whenever the things that i wanted is sold out, i do feel really dissapointed and sad and look out for other blogshops who might sell similar items.

I just wish she would stock up more of her items. I mean, why not make more profit? She sells more, she gains more, and i get to buy, and everybody gets to be happy at the end.

For her, there's no point opening a blogshop, i shall say.

One more thing, i didn't emailed her till today because i think it would be rude. So, i just gave up on her blog.

  1. hahah, i know which blog u are referring to.
    yeah, it seems impossible to grab hold of her stuff. but when u do see something nice from her site despite SOLD OUT or RESERVED, still email her.. sometimes she may be able to get stock from supplier or customers may back out the next day..

  7. oh her blog is one of my favourite! and she's an awesome seller too. i understand what u mean,but usually if u're online within the hour she's updating her blog, u might get to pick up few stuffs. but yeah, she's quick to seal the deal as usually she'll js contact u using smses. i agree as anon no.1 says, u shud try to email her either way, who knows u might get lucky!

  8. i think i noe which blog oso. everytime that blog gt new update, when i tried 2 open the web can't open at all. i can only access the site the next day. well all the clothes/dresses r all sold out or reserved. This is sooo frustrating

  9. I do know which blog you're referring to as well and I've encountered the same. I supposed the seller gives priority to her own friends (offline) first (maybe even before the day of updates) which I think it's quite unfair for us online shoppers. She just posted it up on her blog to let everyone know that her business are going well. I am as disappointed as you do too.

    I guess she should take in more stocks and divide them like some for offline and some for online customers. I mean we all know she won't be losing out business that way since many loves the collection she have.

    It's a bit waste of time sitting in front of the computer, clicking refresh like a mad person and ended up being disappointed. :(

    Sighs.

  10. Oh.. I think I know too but not a fan. Dun really like her collections and always priced higher than the rest.

    I prefer her friend's, also tend to be out of stock and reserved within hours but not as fast as hers. At least her friend's stuff are more unique. But she has a shop now.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I know which one too~~!! ahahaha...yeah, it is almost ALWAYS SOLD OUT, just like you have described. Fortunately, I'm not a big fan, so no biggie for me. Nevertheless, I understand completely how you feel, I've been there too, for a different blogshop though, lol. =P

  16. which blogshop is this? I know of one that sells off very fast too but then if not mistaken she updates every tuesday?

  17. I agree the price is higher than usual and that other blog sellers sometimes do sell the same thing. But it's from her blog that it looks nicer tho. Haha. Her collections are sometimes nice like her blazers, jumpsuits (long time ago), maxi dresses; but sometimes her clothes are just too bizarre and those are the clothes that are always still available which i don't wana buy.

    True, not all her stuffs are all sold out all the time sometimes but the stuff that are still not sold wouldn't be the ones that i like.

    Guess i've got common taste. Haha.

    I don't mean to wana slap her, just wana complain and hope that same to other blogshops, hope they'll get in more stocks for stuffs that are hot selling.

  19. i know dis shop too. for those who doesnt know, she preview her shop evy sunday night n full update on monday.

    yes i agree her stuffs are always reserved. im 1 of d 'window shopper' dat owes check her blog but i never buy anything. i personally think her stuffs r a bit higher than other blogshop. although it claimed to be imported, still i can find some of her items at other blogshop with cheaper price :).

    those pretty, dazzling and in trend stuff owes sold out. what left are mostly the..unwearable or d least pretty of the updates(my opinions only).

  20. Business not good - seller stress
    Business too good - buyers complain...

    *sigh* there is no pleasing everyone you know?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I agree with those who said that she marks up her prices. I don't think it is worth paying so much. I would rather splurge on Topshop, Zara, MNG, Forever 21 etc etc when they have sales.

    And yes, it is true that after her updates within minutes, the status is either ALL RESERVED or ALL SOLD OUT! Don't bloody make sense at all, better just close the blogshop down and sell 'em among your close friends and selected customers. Whats the point of UPDATING?

    ReplyDelete
  22. EXACTLY!!!

    I AM GIVING UP ON HER BLOGSHOP SOON TOO! I FIND IT FUCKING RIDICULOUS! >:(

    ReplyDelete
  23. Chill Su...I do feel abit of a letdown with her blogshop(not a really big fan..so it's quite ok for me sometimes unless when i really wanted tht piece). But don't la curse...

    Sometimes I'll wait till another blogshop tht sells almost the same stuffs as hers (i found out 1 that always stock in most of the sold outs at her blogshop) or visit SG for it.

    Come to think of it, it wouldn't do us any harm if we're having lesser clothes to wear! It could save us some money too ;p

  27. Is true that she sells it to her own friends or her own top buyers/fav.customers. she will email the pictures of the new arrivals to her so called "off line buyers" and then she will take their orders the day before she updates it online, on a Sunday night.

    She will also PM via sms to all her close friends and buyers who realy buys from her like alot, when she will update and what is in store for them. That way, buyers will request from her more pictures..what items will be up for sale....size.color...etc and voila! A deal is sealed BEFORE the actual updates. I know this because I have a friend who buys from her alot (no more now, coz she gave up), and she receives pictures via her email on what will be up for grabs early before hand.

    Don't know why she still post up on her blog since everything, like ALMOST everything has been reserved OR sold out even before she updates the status of the clothing. Maybe for show biz? Or to stay at par with her other close 'neighbors' (refers to her friends who owns a blogshop as well)

    I was,well, desperate. To prepare my hotmail, a page of already typed out message, and all i gotta do is copy and past the name of the item and click SEND. I was early, like the second it is up, i HAVE copy and past the item name I want and send off the email to her. In total, it was less than 5 mins that I had my orders sent in and guess what, in less than 10mins, she said all 10 items are SOLD OUT. Ridiculous much? Bias? Or okay im just unlucky to even have missed out the 10 spots!

    no doubt she has a pretty items all the time, but with due respect, i think it's always the same, if not, hmm.....she picks the things to satisfy her already made fan club to buy. That explains the same sorta clothing to the targeted people.

    That's all i have to say and thank you for sharing.

  28. hey there! i think there's some kind of confusion with the supposed blogshop that everyone claimed to know here. I do know which blogshop this is and I happen to be her best friend's friend. I have to say I love her items and all her items always look fantastic on her site and on her especially but when you actually receive the item itself, uh huh.. doesn't look like the pictures or when modelled.

    And to clarify, it's true that most of her items are already sold out even before the updates are supposed to be release. And smses and emails will be send to her own friends and regular buyers beforehand say on friday or saturday night. And most of her items which are updated on sunday night are not available in the sense they are so called preview as she model it from her best friend's ready stock item. and the items are there just for show. and then she will post an update saying she's taking restock orders for the 'earlier' items which by then, she would have known how much to take in and it will be a confirmed profit by bulk then.

    so even if you wait frantically in front of your computer say half an hour before, you will never been able to grab hold of most of her items per se. cos they were never available to begin with especially for those 'exclusive' or 'imported' ones.

  29. To above Anon,

    Well said!

    I did the same to her friend's blogshop. I managed to get some items, say, 3 tries out of 10 times. For this seller, absolutely no chance.

    But then am not a fan of hers. There are many shops selling same products, same quality but cheaper. There are even other shops who have better photos, better models, nicer pose, nicer picture outlook (really impressive) and greater clarity as well.

    My advice: Let's go there instead. Revisit only if this seller stocks more quantities, yea?

  33. haha, i've always encounter the same problem with this blogshop too. last time i saw this item, it was available, i emailed her, ten minutes later it's fully reserved AND NOT TO ME! :(

    i managed to buy something from her but just because it's restockable. but she's a really nice seller though. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I know what ur talking abt. I've bought from her twice. Her replies are super fast.

    If she does give priority to her friends, whats wrong with that. U wud have done the same.

    Next time try again ya? :) And true, if its sold out/reserved, nothing wrong with emailing her to ask for restock

    ReplyDelete
  35. i once managed to reserve an item from her. and i was out at that time you see and so i told her i will bank in immediately as i was on my way back home. and all it took me was 15 minutes to get back home from the time i smsed her and when i contacted her, she told me the item has been sold already! wth.i was thinking whether the item was available in the first placE!

  40. lol, gals, for those wanting to know which shop this is, you guys are either not VERY avid online shoppers or you don't observe the reviewer's blogroll like stock market haha! She updates Sunday 8pm usually.

    I just bought couple mths ago from her, she replies fast as she uses her blackberry which is online all the time. She's nice lar, just ask for re-stocks if sold out. Try your luck, i'm sure most are re-stockable since her collection is mostly if not always replicated by other famous blogs. All of them source from the same local supplier and i've been to that wholesaler once with friends to buy in bulk and i know where all of them get their stocks from haha. But since i can't go every time, (only been once and happen to ter-stumble upon their collection at that shop, lucky me!), so i'll just buy from either of the blogshop and let them earn if i really like the piece.

  44. I think I know which blog this is, too :) I even put her blog on my RSS feed, thinking that I'll get her freshest and most recent update, but they still come out with "ALL RESERVED/SOLD" on the FIRST update!

    I actually emailed her on a couple of items previously. The first time, I didn't even get a reply. I checked her blog a couple of days later, and saw that item marked as "Sold". I emailed on another item, and she replied only a few days later that it's sold out.

    Her blog updates are still on my RSS feed, and so far, ALL of them say 'RESERVED/SOLD'. I'm just going to delete her blog from my RSS feeds and bookmarks. No point in even keeping an eye on that blog. Besids, I already know how to spell "Reserved" and "Sold". :P

  48. Haha...I know this blog. Used to be one of her first customers when she started. But recently, her items are always reserved or sold out eventhough when I hog the pc the minute she updates. But her range is quite bizzare, not a loss for me.
    One of the best sellers though! :D
