That awkward moment when you realised all your poses are the same.

Finally took some of the items I ordered off Peeka outside for a spin! I originally planned to wear a flared skirt with this coordinate, but realised that the combination is probably a little too reminiscent of a schoolgirl’s outfit especially when paired with the simone rocha inspired oxfords.

Celine inspired bag off Taobao. I’m really keen to get my hands on the original, but this particular colourway never seems to be in stock in London :( This will suffice for time being!

Outfit breakdown

  • Shirt: The Scarlet Room
  • Skirt: H&M
  • Bag: Taobao via Peeka.sg
  • Accessories: Miu Miu, Alexander McQueen, H&M.
  • Wedges: Taobao

P.S. A few of you have been asking us which taobao shop we ordered the simone rocha inspired shoes off of, but we are hesitant to recommend one as the quality of mine isn’t exactly up to par. The shoes have obviously been dyed over red leather and it shows up with the slightest scuff. We really don’t want any of our readers to end up purchasing such items, so we are refraining from linking to any of the sellers until we can be assured of the quality. In any case, I would also like to recommend purchasing shipping insurance – if your item comes damaged or broken, Peeka’s customer service is really amazing at dealing with such matters and resolving the issue with the sellers!

    Compliments on you as always. The reason why I take the opportunity to comment on Taobao is that I have been recently purchased a few items (most of them are “inspired by”). So far so good. Albeit, the price is right sometimes the item featured on some of the sites of sellers are slightly different. Celine Paris logo tee advertised in white came in ivory… I would like to ask about the made of your Celine inspired bag. Is it real leather at least? It is quite pricey even though it’s only a replica so maybe you could advice me on the fabric. Thanks :)

    Hey! I agree with you completely. Sometimes it’s really hit and miss! My bag is indeed made out of real leather, but the wing “flaps” are smooth leather instead of suede like the real deal. I think you really do get what you pay for on taobao! 😀

    Aww Dawn Thanks I was really looking forward to your reply. I must say I just bought Burberry “inspired” boots on Taobao. Had to use the translator otherwise I haven’t a clue what’s going on :) the thing is they come in cow leather or suede…much the same I mean leather is leather but I have preferred just the normal leather not suede. But thanks for Google Chrome I managed to buy suede ones…however I’m much happier with sued leather now. The bag looks flawless though and I was shocked by the price. You know the way if you search for Celine Bags the cheapest would be around 800 元 Anyway, I appreciate your help 😉 keep up the good looks!

    i know this is relative. but on a scale of 1 to 10, how painful are the simone rocha inspired shoes to walk in? how long do you normally last? thanks!

    [Reply]

    Dawn replied on

    Hmm, I would say a 7, with 10 being the most painful. They are somewhat stiff and cuts into my feet a little.
