AliExpress Thread!

Post your purchases and/or wishlist items, links and photos of the items are appreciated.

NTA, but yea. Lol I've gotten literal garbo from AliExpress, ill-fitting or shit in this weird cheap polyester shiny fabric. Forever 21 isn't great, but at least I know what I'm getting. Sellers on Ali either leave details out or lie outright.

That being said, I love AliExpress for cheap crap, like stickers and ankle socks. Stuff that is hard to screw up. Everything else is a mixed bag, and I honestly prefer buying secondhand brands to buying new on Ali.

>er, anon, most of them are the same as F21 entirely, made in the same factories, only with no tags.

Eh. Not true, but kinda true. Just because they both come from China doesn't mean they come from the same factory. I've seen crap from older collections of Zara/ASOS/H&M get sold on Ali, stolen photos and everything. A lot of Korean brand stuff too get their photos stolen. You can tell by the specific brand's photography style and because the product is even shittier than the original photo. But I've also seen known Taobao/Ali generic brand stuff being sold at a markup in malls. I usually do a lot of searching and shopping around before I commit to a buy, including reverse image searching, so I hope that makes me less likely to get ripped off.

I've been buying from Ali for years, so I would hope that means I know a thing or two…


No. 322934

Idk if it matters, but just letting you know it's not just you. The stockings on there are pretty awful. I once got a pair of "thigh high" stockings that were over-the-knee at best (I'm 5'5") and I had pretty skinny legs. They got a fucking run in them just from walking around and sitting.

ASOS is ok, but also check out Sock Dreams and American Apparel if you're looking for stockings or thigh highs.

No. 326760

Hope this isn't a dumb Q but I recently watched the Ted Talk about counterfeit items and terrorism. Does anyone know if the profit of the sellers on AliExpress funds any sort of terrorism?

No. 326805

I don't know about terrorism but it's illegal business, that is for sure. There was a warning from the Finnish customs here some time ago about buying copies from Asian sites - especially down jackets. They found rotting parts of birds inside some jackets because who cares about quality and ethics when they are made by slaves.

the makeup chair, pony syndrome, wayne goss, lisa eldridge, pixiwoo. All fairly non obnoxious and clear in their instructions. It's more "normie" makeup than the stuff in your picture, but they all have videos on basic looks to build your skill base on. I'd avoid wayne's non makeup videos though, he does get kind of obnoxious in those at times.

Studying in baguette land and I absolutely adore Paris and France as a whole. I grew up in the middle of fucking nowhere Southern California, if you wanted to do anything interesting or fun you had to drive 45 min to an hour. If you have no car, you have no life. I also lived on the east coast for a bit and basically encountered the same thing. I’m in Paris now so cost of living sucks but there’s so much to do and see, every inch of the city has something interesting like museums, flea markets, I even catch myself just looking at the different architecture all around. I also lived in Normandy for a bit and visit Rhone Alpes regularly which are way more rural but still 10x better than the beige brown rocks and weeds I grew up around. There’s always a castle to visit, an ancient ruin to see, a regional cuisine to try. I seriously don’t want to go back, France is so much more pleasing to the eye than Southern California, and honestly a lot more friendly than they’re given credit for (in my opinion)

No. 325918


I've taken a few vacations in Paris and Nice and I've always found that if I make an effort to speak some French the people instantly loosen up and become friendly. They usually still switch to English because my French isn't very good, but it seems like they appreciate that I made the attempt.

Objectivity doesn't exist anyways. You'll always have bias, no matter what and thinking you are being objective just makes you less prone to acknoweledge your bias.

>I also lived in Normandy for a bit and visit Rhone Alpes regularly which are way more rural
In Rhone Alpes it depends on where you go, you should try to visit Annecy and Lyon. And if you're rich enough or can find nice deals maybe you should try to go to the mountains there on winter holidays if you like skiing.

I'm French but not white, and I find it funny because I visited Paris for a few days for holidays some months ago with some relatives and in some relatively touristic places and employees everywhere would immediately start talking English to us. Same thing with an Asian friend when we visited the south of France together. It was really awkward.

I didn't see your reply, sorry. I see that Washington DC is small, maybe in the case of a long trip I should visit bigger places like New York or Florida and then end the trip with Washington DC?

No. 326829

baguette fag here AND from Normandy ! Which part of Normandy did you visit ? Haute or Basse ?

Well to be fair if you go further into the countryside it'd be the same as what you described, just as any country that is similarly developped. A lot of train lines are closing due to too few people taking them and a shit ton of towns become more and more isolated because of it, and the result is the same as where you're from, no car = no life.
But France's countryside is beautiful and underrated.
I'm very glad to see someone enjoying France, as Paris often gets bashed for being filthy and filled with assholes (which is true, ngl).

For some reason, I know a lot of people who've lied about having serious mental illnesses and I'm wondering if I'm just unlucky or if this is more common than I realized?

The ones I've seen this done the most commonly with are eating disorders. Girls will lie and say they're diagnosed as anorexic (usually an easy one to catch them in if you actually know about anorexia) but the more we hang out, they'll change it to bulimic because they can't actually starve themselves like they pretend to. I've also known a lot of edgelord guys who lie about having sociopathy or psychopathy.

The anorexia thing really gets me because I knew an anorexic girl who wrecked her body for life and almost died from it. Also, it's always fat chicks who tell me they're anorexic, which is a dead giveaway because to be diagnosed as anorexic you HAVE to be underweight. Even if you are genuinely starving yourself (which they're not) if you're not actually underweight, you're not anorexic.

It's kind of a fucked situation. You risk it with adoption getting a child born with mood disorders due to their mother doing drugs in utero. Shes not the only sibling to act like this, as my mom adopted more born like this. We tried every avenue of help but therapists would use "normie child logic" to bandaid the situation. They would assume it was a tantrum or something minor. My childhood was hard and my mom deals with alot of shit I wish she could erase but honestly without it I feel like I couldve gotten hurt by someone who is as manipulative as my sister.
