Sales/Discount:

  • No regular sales, rare ad-hoc discount.
  • They do mark things down at the end of season, but popular item do not make it there, or maybe only in very few sizes.
  • They give discount to loyal customers. I buy from them maybe for 3-4yrs and I get 8% off on everything.

Additional info:

  • Usually good fit for taller women, but read the length on each item.
  • My pet peeve with them is their inconsistent sizing on the tailored item especially blazers/ jackets.
  • Knits sizing is fine.
  • Also layering pieces can sell out incredible fast as they only stock a few pieces in each size.

Urkye ($)

Urkye is a tiny Polish company without any brick and mortar store that only release maybe a dozen simple smart casual styles a year. There is a few other online retailers carries they stuff, you can find the link on their website under stationary stores.
Sizing:

  • Pepperberry style 2 dimensional sizing, first dimension EU 34-44( ~US 4-16) , second dimension called O,OO,OO.
  • Knit items are very stretchy, runs big you can easily size down if you like fitted, but woven items are true to the size.

  • For most places the cheapest category is ~$7.50 that fit ~ 2 knit top.
  • Highest shipping category is around $25 to North America, but that is for multiple heavy items.

Newsletter/Catalog:

  • Worth to sign up for newsletter, because they have so few releases a year and for the price they charge things fly out in popular colors/sizes.

Sales/Discount:

  • They do have sales time to time, but they full prices already so cheap it doesn’t worth to wait for sales if you like something.
  • Also have loyalty discount, max out at 10%.

Additional info:

  • They make garment for 40 cm back length from neck to waist.
  • If you read something is 24cm from the waist it means it is equivalent to a 64 cm top length.
  • Best CS ever!
  • They hem things for FREE bottom of skirt/ top or sleeve, but such request obviously makes things un-returnable.

Bolero beachwear($$$)

Bolero Beachwear is US company started maybe 2 yrs ago with fun patterned beach cover-ups and easy breezy sleeveless beach dresses.

  • Uses simple US sizing XS-XL, but usually the bust area has drawstring adjustment and everything very stretchy with like 10% spandex content.
  • They only have beach cover ups, dresses, and a couple of tops.
  • Some of the pattern maybe office friendly, but generally I would say they are nice vacation wear that you take to a tropical cruise to be sexy and having fun .
  • All made in the US, so no sweatshop labour was used, but the price reflect this USD$120-$150 for a polyester/spandex beach dress, but shipping is free for US.
  • No international shipping policy stated on the website, but when I contacted them, they were more than happy to figure it out for me.

Bitter Lollipop

Bitter Lollipop is a one person company used to be located in the UK, but owner just moved to the US this year.

  • Because of the move she sold things out and the new collection did not come out yet, but supposed to be on 2016 August.
  • She uses 2 dimensional sizing and mainly have dresses and tops.
  • I did not get the chance to try it yet, because when I find it, my size was sold out in everything and was no new items due to the move.

AJ Rumina

AJ Rumina is a US based company, which are in the business for 6+ years, but they have only 6-7 items.

  • Plus they are the exact same now as it were 2 yrs ago when I tried them, maybe a new color here and there.
  • I bought their ¾ sleeve tee, which did not had darts, or princess seam, but the sides were sewn curved instead of straight line. It wasn’t even made from a very stretchy material. Plus the 100% pre-shrunk cotton shrunk in the wash.
  • Shipping is flat $10 domestic and $15 international
