Got a special order? Let’s hear it! I’m always looking for suggestions and comments!
I have a few favorite fashion bloggers that I often check out to see their newest look. And it was a bit more than one month ago that I saw a very cute peplum top at Wendy’s lookbook. I couldn’t help clicking on the link and it led me to a website called IFCHIC.com. I had never heard about this site before but there was something there that made me very excited! It said that after signing up, you can collect coins every day. You can get up to 3 coins each day and that equals 6 dollars. Now the trick is you can only use them one day each month. And that day is the 24th of every month. They call it the ifchic24 Event. I thought to myself, really?! I mean I saw there were a lot of cool contemporary designers on this website, some of whom I know and love! For example, CAMEO, FINDERS KEEPERS, THE ROW, BIG PARK and even ALEXANDER WANG. So let’s do some quick math. Let’s see, 6 dollars a day times an average of 30 days per month…carry the one…OMG! That means if I don’t skip any days, I can collect $180. And that’s real money I get to use to spend on my favorite brands. We have a saying in China that goes something like: “There is no way a meat pie will fall from the sky.” It means there is no such thing as getting free stuff. Well, you know me, I am very curious and focused, so I went to do some research. And I was very happy to learn that it turned out to be a very legit company. I’m not sure how they make money but any time someone with great clothes wants to pay me to shop on their website I will not argue with them! So I decided I would love to give it a try. 😉
Basically what I did was just spend a few minutes each day and found those coins. They were on different pages but it’s easy to collect them without spending any money. As the photo shows above, the coins pop up on different pages and I just clicked on them. It’s that easy to earn some dollars! I was just drooling over my keyboard when I looked at all those cute pieces. Most of you are probably just like me, with a shopping budget every month. I love so many things but I can’t see myself spending that much on them. So if this IFCHIC.com is what they promised, then maybe I could slowly buy some great pieces that I really love, with the help of my free coins. I was dreaming and dreaming! I wasn’t sure how it would work out so I didn’t post anything until I actually tried it. See? I am your Guinea Pig again! No, no. No need to thank me. It’s part of the job! 😉
So it was that on June 24th, I was pretty excited to turn on my computer and start my treasure hunt. That one hour was pretty intense for me because I quickly learned that things fly out of stock quickly. I had to balance what I needed and also look for the best deals. Hey, this kind of shopping is NOT for the weak! 😉 I haven’t been so excited for shopping for a long time. My husband is still teasing me about that day. He said he’s going to change his name to “Twentyfourth” so I’m as happy to see him! Lol!
Anyway, now I know how they make money! Even if you don’t buy anything when you’re gathering your coins, you’ll see lots of great and unique pieces you can’t live without while you’re on their website. The final result was I bought 3 things on the 24th. I did spend all my free coins and also might have put a bit more on my credit card! Hey, it wasn’t my fault I loved some of them so much! Now there was only one thing I was worried about; the quality. I heard too many stories about online shopping experiences turning bad and customers receiving very cheaply made stuff. Well, I didn’t worry too long this time. I placed my order on the 24th, they shipped on the 25th and I received my items on 27th. I was not sure what I would see when I opened the box so I had Twentyfourth, I mean my husband, do it. Lol! How ridiculous is that?! After I saw the packaging shown in the picture below, I already felt better.
All three things are in dust bags and packed very nicely. And the quality? I was more than pleased! They all used very good material and are well made. Now, I really feel better! 😉
Below are two things I got from IFCHIC.COM. I LOVE them so much, especially that colorful leopard top!
Well, I did have a small problem with the third one. It’s that floral top below. I REALLY LOVE it. But it is too small on me (I ordered Medium.) I will try to find a way to wear it somehow. If not, I have 30 days to return. So this is something you need to be aware of, most of the clothing on this site is pretty small. Really pay attention to the size chart and measurements. In fact I was worried the top would be small on me but I loved it so much I decided to take the risk.
Overall, I REALLY LOVE what I got and you certainly should give it a try! IFCHIC.COM earned a solid A from me. 🙂
