Knockout dresses from Hong Kong


So technically these are knockoff dresses but they're pretty amazing IMO.

Recently when I was browsing Ebay looking for vintage cocktail dresses for an upcoming affair I came across the vendor Valuefashionshop. Based in Hong Kong, this seller has an assortment of super-cute, super-cheap dresses modeled after celeb red carpet looks.

My first puchase was their Womens Rockabilly Deep V neck puff sleeve Bodycon Business Party Pencil Dress
I googled their Ebay shop name and I couldn't find any informative reviews or sizing information so I measured one of my favorite dresses and I guessed size large based on their measurements and one Ebay feedback that mentioned they ran small. 2-3 weeks later I tore open my package...and it was too big :( It seems my T25 is working a little too well. For the $22 bucks spent I wasn't going to return it so I gave it to my SIL. I cut the tag out so she wouldn't see it was a size 12 - and it fits her so nobody has to know. I decided I was going to try again and this time I was going for broke....and I ordered two sizes smaller. I selected a size small (US 4/6) and crossed my fingers. I'm thrilled to share that I got it yesterday and it fits like a glove. It's amazing and I love it! I can wear it as is or layer it with my black 3/4 sleeve Halftee for a more modest look. Yeah, I actually pranced around in front of my mirror with my new black patent Highness Louboutins all night. And then I realized that I better find a shoe I can dance in because I would probably break my neck in those Loubs LOL. So until I can think of something else it looks like I'll be pairing this dress with my Fendi Fendista black heels that I scored for $80 at the Rack.

Now that I've got the sizing down pat I have a few other dresses on my radar:

Womens Celeb Vintage Cotton Party Cocktail Evening Sheath Bodycon Pencil Dress
I love the color and cut of this one. And the shoulder detail is amazing (and should balance my hips). Note that two of the celebs are wearing them with the CL Highness - I think it's a sign :) Now that I've lost some weight I think I'm ready to start wearing color again. As soon as I muster up the courage I'm going to hit the BIN (buy it now) button on this one.


Womens Celebrity Style Floral Ladies Bodycon Tunic Black Party Midi Pencil Dress
Hello? Who wouldn't want to look like Beyonce? I've been thinking about this one for a while but it's a couple inches shorter than my black dress which is the perfect length for me. Plus it's really trendy and I'm not going to get more than a season out of this one so for now it's sitting on my watch list.


Womens Puff Sleeve Celeb Party Long Sleeve Cocktail Evening Bodycon Pencil Dress
I REALLY want this dress but the color is too light for me. I'm 10 lbs away from wearing pastels. I actually messaged the seller to find out if they will be producing this one in other colors because the second they come out with a red, black or navy, this baby is mine! If you look at the close ups you can see the amazing seaming...and those shoulders are TDF. I love a good futuristic rock star shoulder.

So if you're looking for cheap thrills, head over to ebay and buy a Valuefashionshop dress. The material is really nice and these are way more fun than the boring dresses I've been finding at TJ Maxx for the same price. Feel free to ask questions about sizing - and maybe if I'm brave enough I'll post a pic of me in my new dress :)

As always, happy shopping!
