[Review & Finds] AE and DHG clothes, jewelry, and accessories with modshots!
By - dreamsofpavement
You got me at Sezane 🥲 added so many items to my ae cart from this list, thank you!!
I feel you at “you got me at Sezane” deep in my soul. 😂 I have a bunch of other Sezane reps on the way from AE — I’ll make sure to post with reviews when they get here! And so, so happy to hear this helped. :)
I’ve been super into AE lately so thanks for these!! Always appreciate modshots
Of course! I've definitely fallen victim to some ....misleading AE product shots, so always happy to give more perspective into what things look like on!
Thank you for the great reviews! I love that AE makeup brushes shop. Never receive a dud from them
It's seriously unreal! There's nothing I need less than another makeup brush, but it's such a good deal for the quality that it feels like I'm getting them for free? So I add another two to my cart? (This makes a lot of sense to my post-RepLadies brain.)
Thank you! I love that sweater!
It's such a good one! I hesitated on buying it from Sezane because of the wool content, but at $18 it felt like a no-brainer. :)
Yes, for me, a 100% wool sweater is so itchy. I like a blend.
Ooh I'm tempted by the perfume. Did you order the edp or edt?
It felt like a bit of a gamble because the reviews don't give much insight, but I'm so happy with them! I got L'Ombre Dans L'Eau in EDP and Oyedo and Tam Dao in EDT. :)
can I ask about the longevity? tia!
Pulled the trigger on the Tam Dao. I'll update when I get it, in a couple of weeks.
Can't wait to hear what you think!
Got the Tam Dao. Pretty damn good. It has this kind of eucalyptus smell.
Do you know of any good sellers or stores for replica fragrances?
Sure thing! I think the EDT has just about the same longevity as my auth does (maybe 5-7 hours on skin?). I sprayed one spritz of the rep Oyedo on my arm last night before bed and can still smell some faint traces of it this morning, but get more mileage when I spray on clothes. I'll also say that the rep Tam Dao lasts longer than either of the other fragrances I bought if that's a scent that interests you!
Omg Diptyque L’Ombré. Swoon! Thank you!
As a Baies lover, it's such a good scent. You're so welcome!
Oh boy, I suppose I should add Baies to my cart now, too😝
I've never used DHGate is it it similar to AE?
Love your haul! And your puppy in your pics.
I was hoping someone would spot her. :) Thank you!
Thanks so much for the listings and all the mod shots too! 😊
You're so welcome!
Ooooh yes I gave a few brushes to my MIL and would like to replenish my own stock
Do it! I can't recommend them enough. They feel as close to grey market as anything I've ever bought from AE :)
Great finds, thanks so much for sharing!! I have the auth version of that blue and white embroidered jacket (I got it to wear to [my recent trip to Greece](https://imgur.com/a/2B9xHmb) \- seen with my rep Chanel, lol), and it's not lined either! So it looks like you got a great deal there :)
Ahh, it looks so beautiful on you -- you match the views perfectly! And so good to know about the lining. <3 Thanks for sharing!
Thank you!! I wish I were still there 🥲
>my recent trip to Greece
that embroidered jacket is definitely made for a vacation to Greece !!!
Thanks!! When I saw it in Zara just before I left for the trip I was like, "mmHMMM, this is coming with me" :D
I returned to AE just to snag two of the [Wayne Goss brush](https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32860597001.html?spm=a2g0o.store_pc_groupList.8148356.1.424a5fdcuSekYG)es from that same brush supplier, thanks for the rec! Hopefully they arrive and perform as well as the glowing reviews at bottom of the page...
Oooh, these look so nice -- definitely just added to my cart. Keeping my fingers crossed they're as great as the other brushes I've gotten from that seller!
The large eyeshadow brush is marked as "squirrel hair" and if it's indeed anything close, that's gonna be the single most luxurious brush I've ever owned
Thank you for this post!
Thanks for the links and reviews!
Of course! <3
That sezane sweater for 18!? I’ve saved it in the hopes it goes on sale again! :) thanks for sharing!
Ahh, I'm so sad to hear the price went back up! Definitely keep an eye on it -- I'll keep my fingers crossed!
Thanks!!! Love it!
Thanks for sharing your list. I've always been nervous about things like fragrance from rep sellers. Have you done it before? Any concerns?
Great question! Before I fully dove into the world of RL, I bought a brand new Byredo fragrance from eBay for something like $50 USD -- I knew it likely wasn't an auth purchase for that price (and it shipped from Russia), but it ended up being a great buy! I was really happy with it, and that gave me the little confidence boost to try this one.
Thanks for sharing your experience. IDK if I'm ready to stick a toe in, but it definitely gives me something to consider. Might lead me to try something soon
Great haul! Thank you for the post😊
You're very welcome! Thanks for the comment :)
All the clothes look lovely on you! Thanks for sharing ❤️
That is so kind of you, thank you so much! <3
Silly question but how does dhgate work? Is it like AE or TB for buying and shipping?
Not silly at all, and yes! I haven't played around with TB too much, but DHgate is super similar to AE. You buy directly from sellers through the DHgate platform. :)
Great thanks! Very curious about the fragrances
Definitely interested in the makeup brushes. Do you know how they hold up with washing?
I've only disinfected them so far vs giving a full shampoo, but they held up really well to getting wet/drying! I honestly can't tell a difference from the auth brushes I have.
The perfume looks so good
It totally exceeded all of my expectations!
Thank you so much for sharing! For the brushes between the Marc Jacob Bronzer brush and the it cosmetics brush which one do you find to be softer or in general which one would you suggest buying first?
Great question! They're both really soft, so I think it just comes down to what you're looking for. The Marc Jacobs is a much bigger, fluffier brush that I think is ideal for any powder products, while the IT Cosmetics brush is denser and probably best for foundation, concealer, or cream products. :)
Thank you so much for your response! Since I needed a brush for powder the Marc Jacobs sounds perfect for my needs. Thank you again!
You're so welcome! Hope it works out great for you!
Wow! I usually stay away from any rep perfumes just out of concern that there might be unusual ingredients in there (is this a valid concern? Idek), but I think I might give this a go! It’s really hard to get Dyptique here, super expensive and not many choices.
Oh, that seems like such a fair concern! FWIW, my skin is really sensitive and I haven't noticed any issues so far, but definitely harder to tell what you're getting than something with a transparent ingredient list. Let me know what you end up doing, would be super curious to hear how they work for you!
Good to know!! I'll have to give it a go.
Great post!! Are your GGs from Fish? Love the leopard!!
Thank you so much! The GGs I'm wearing here are tragically auths (lol) bought before I discovered the incredible world of reps, but I *did* just order a pair from Fish this morning and can't wait to see how they compare! Have you ever ordered any from him?
They’re so cute! I actually just ordered your same pair from Fish but I’m going to have to sell them — they seem to run ever so slightly smaller than the auth - maybe by a half size or so. I’m going to reorder from him in the next size up once I BST them! Welcome to the Rep World - there’s no turning back 😈🤣
I've gotten so much more use out of the leopard than I thought I would -- it ended up being a great neutral! I'd love to hear what you think when you get them in the right size. Might have to sell the auths and replace them with the reps if you love them! 😂
Is the perfume indistinguishable from auth? Like gray market? I'm a fragrance junkie so I'm very tempted lol
I haven't been able to find any distinguishable differences between the auth and rep, so it may be gray market! I just added some pictures of the bottle to the bottom of my [modshot link](https://imgur.com/a/omXGv0e) if it helps. :) Oyedo is the one I've been wearing most since receiving my order and the scent seems like 1:1 to me!
do the perfumes smell more alcohol or do you think its a grey market item?
There's no alcohol smell to me, so I feel pretty sure it's grey market!
I never know if it is a mock perfume just for the bottle as a prop or if they come with actual scents in them!
