 After a long time, I can finally pack my bags and explore new places, but oops! I forgot that I have a family of my own now. I remember the saying "A family that travels together, stays together". So, I decided to surprise my partner and my baby with a trip to Hong Kong.

I have honestly been planning to write a review about this new-found Thai local brand since I got pregnant, but it keeps cancelling and moving and finally, here I am taking the time to write about this affordable Thai clothing brand, Atippa Shop.

I found Atippa Shop on Instagram and the first thing that caught my attention is that they have a minimal, aesthetic and they are one of the most affordable brands in Bangkok.

They also sell wholesale prices for those business enthusiasts and they ship internationally. I also discover that they can put a label with your own brand on the clothes.

Well, honestly? It got me thinking should I buy bulk and put up my own online clothing store and buy the items from them? But then I realize, I have a lot on my plate right now. I have my bags and luggage business, full-time job, and part-time jobs (like with S I have many clients right and I'm thankful). also my own Blog site, Youtube channel and social media, and I also have a baby that needed me the most. So, putting up an online clothing store is not ideal for me. 

When I was pregnant I already wanted to buy a few pieces from Atippa Shop, however, it got me thinking it's very unwise to buy clothes from them If I have this huge belly and it's just a waste of money to buy pieces that I cannot wear.

So, I decided to buy pieces from them that are stretchable, and preggy-friendly, and I can still wear them during postpartum. At first, I bought 3 pieces from them, to be frank. they have a lot of beautiful designs and styles and it's hard to pick.

I bought the bodysuit and bodycon dress when I was pregnant. Then this past week I bought other pieces from them the cargo pants, sets and the bodysuit shirt.

Sexy Back Bodysuit

When I received it, I was so scared and worried that it might not fit me plus I have a big preggy belly, and it is so small.

But when I put it on, in my shock It fit me perfectly, it is so flattering in my body, the bodysuit is breathable and I totally love the material of the bodysuit. The only downside I wish they could update in the future is that they can put on a bra foam in the chest area.

I know you can use a sticky nipple or bra silicone but It's not that I always have a stockpile of them and just grab it anytime when I want to, right? Lastly, I wish they could put a snap button in the bottom area of the bodysuit, you know you have to pee and it takes a serious time and effort to go to the bathroom and get naked just to pee. 

HISO dress

Another happily satisfied order, it fits perfectly and flattering to my body as well. No problem with the material. So far, I am happy with the bodycon dress I am planning to buy other colors soon, like white and black.

Cargo Pants

I have love-and-hate feelings about this cargo pants. I love everything about the pants, it fits me well the size and the length is okay, however, the quality of the cloth is so sheer that everyone can see your underwear. I think this cargo pants is perfect for a beach trip, I bought the white one so maybe that's why it so sheer, they also have color black. Maybe black is safe to wear. 

Botega Short sleeve

This shirt is perfect, the quality of the cloth is very light and it fits perfectly. I like that this bodysuit short sleeve has a snaps button in the bottom so it is very easy if you are rushing to the toilet. I also like the idea that you can wear Botega Short sleeves in 3 different ways. It's like I bought 3 clothes in 1. 

Madison set

I've been wanting to buy the Madison set since I was pregnant but it doesn't feel right to buy one when my body is getting bigger and bigger (prego days). But now! that I finally get it, I don't know. I perfectly love the bra and the shorts, but the cover-up button-down shirt is a bit small. I wish they make it wider or larger. But all in all, the quality is super good.

My Final Thoughts

That's it loves, finally, I am able to make a review with the Local Thai brand Atippa Shop. I honestly love all their clothing designs, because they are cheaper and they always have something new. It makes me feel like I want to buy all. But then again, it's unwise!

 I've heard a lot of influencers promoting the brand Fashion Nova. I also remember this artist, Zhavia, who appeared on the television show The Four: Battle for Stardom. In one of her songs, "Fashion Nova got us in a house (ay), L.A living." So, it made me curious about Fashion Nova.

A Short Background

Fashion Nova was started in 2006 and is based in Los Angeles. Fashion Nova has always been privately owned, and CEO Richard Saghian has been in charge of it. He sells cheap "clubwear" and other clothes in malls around Los Angeles. He started the e-commerce site in 2013, and Instagram has always been a big part of it. Before he started Fashion Nova, Saghian had 60,000 followers on his personal account. He used this near-macro-influence to build a loyal following for his new brand. Saghian was one of the first people to realize that social platforms would soon be a key part of successful branding. He did this by jumping on the social media marketing wave early.

The Strategy

The brand also made its own success by using a strategy that has become trendy, if you get my meaning. There are a lot of fashion blogs out there. Fashion Nova knew this and started reaching out almost right away. Using its image as a fun and welcoming brand for all women, even those with more curves, it linked up with some of the most popular bloggers online. Most of the time, these bloggers had thousands of followers and subscribers on their social media sites and on their blogs as well. This meant that the more Fashion Nova made new lines and worked to improve its image, the more people started to recognize it as a brand.

The idea behind the brand, according to the brand itself, is to copy what works. This literally means that Fashion Nova looks at what stars and celebrities are wearing on social media and then makes their own versions. These versions are based on the cultures of famous people.

Basically, Fashion Nova pushes their brand through influencers to get noticed by millions of people. The Power of Influencer Marketing

You can slowly gain momentum if you find influencers in your circle and pay or otherwise reward the lower-level ones. People will want to wear those clothes, so fashion has the upper hand here. And Instagram's focus on pictures makes it a great match. We do not need to talk about making great pictures for Instagram because we have already done that. The clothes are the stars at Fashion Nova, as they are at every other fashion store.

Utilizing the Social Media

Behind all of that, though, is the mission or ethos. The site almost goes out of its way to get you to share. Instagram is a great place to learn how to run a profile because it is easy to share and full of hashtags. Do not think that what they are doing is advertising for free. They have used influencers and hashtags to start a movement. But, with over 7 million followers (as of today), it seems like Fashion Nova is showing every other fashion brand how to use Instagram correctly.

In Conclusion

My takeaway from this successful clothing brand business is that they really know how to work with their social media. Half of the population is now on social media. People watch YouTube videos more than regular TV programs on TV, and the most effective way to reach the customer is to dominate social media with the right influencer. Plus, their designs are very customer-friendly. I saw this hot dress by Kylie Jenner, but it's crazy expensive and when I checked Fashion Nova, they have almost the same style.

In conclusion, Fashion Nova really gets the attention of the customer.
