I love online shopping, in fact I prolly spend ¼ of my time online browsing different e-commerce sites. For fashion items though, there can be a few difficulties with online shopping, especially when most sites use Caucasian models, which make it difficult to estimate sizes.
Enter USOplus.com, the newest online shopping website to hit thePhilippines. Carrying popular brands from Taiwan, Japan and Korea, each piece is distinctively Asian, with a Western appeal.
Ever watched a K-drama and wondered where you can get that star’s pretty long sleeved top, cute printed skirt, or romantic dainty accessories? Instead of scouring the web for Korean sites (and having difficulty understanding the language), USOplus has saved you the hassle and put together those brands all in one easy to use e-commerce website. With functional, fashionable and very wearable peieces, USOplusis giving women access to a style for every story, delivered straight
to your doorstep.
I was able to attend USOplus’ official launch a week ago, and here’s a recap of what happened:
Upon arrival, guests are ushered to the dressing room area, where we get to see, fit and get a feel of what USOplus has to offer. After scanning the racks, I actually picked up a lot of pieces that I liked.
There were a lot of pastel pieces, as well as floral, printed and lacy numbers, so I was a bit overwhelmed with the options, because they were mostly my style!
Afterwards, we were treated to makeovers! I haven’t worn this much makeup since my college grad pictorial, so I was very excited.
All that preparation was for a fun shoot after, where Joseph Pascual would take our photos.
While waiting for my turn for the shoot, I walked around the venue and took photos.
With a setup as colorful as this, who wouldn’t have dun? I mean hello, balloons, confetti and flower puffs? Happiness!!!
They also had this cute candy snack spread, and everything was just adorable.
I also got to try three flavors from Taiwanese popcorn brand, Planet Studio. That seaweed flavor is super yummy!
Before my turn for the photoshoot, the program began. The lovely Nicole Andersson was the host for the afternoon, and for a generally nonresponsive audience, she did well with engaging the challenging crowd.
The opening remarks were given by Mr. Wayne Chi, President of TID Group and USOplus. With
presence of over 19 years and 126 branches in the Philippines, the
TID Group, a company originating from Taiwan, offering 3C (computer,
consumer electronics, and communication) products, repair services,
and digital music services, decided to invest in E-commerce. Together
with the Taiwanese Online Business Crew, they brought www.USOplus.com to the
Philippines. He had a translator with him, but I was glad that I was able to understand most of his speech. My 13 years of Mandarin Chinese education actually helped me!
Mr. Ni, Director of Taipei Economic and
Cultural Office in the Philippines talked about Taiwan’s full
support of USOplus’ expanding business. He even made fun of himself by telling everyone that he should have worn better clothes had he known everyone looked so good that day. He even thought he misrepresented the brand by wearing a boring corporate suit. He did promise that he weould wear something more acceptable next time. Haha.
captures, in an instant, the way couture has taken itself to the
streets – by transforming the whimsy of unwearable runway designs
into efficient, but no less stylish, street wear. The brand offers a
unique mix of handpicked Korean and Japanese styles, to provide an
exceptional and unique shopping experience for every customer.
Ms. Ruby Hung, CEO of
USOplus shares, “We’re giving fashion enthusiasts more options and
convenience, straight from their fingertips to their front door.”

fairly and shipped to you with a click of button. We want to make it
easy for everyone who loves fashion to get these pieces into their
wardrobes,” she adds.

still perfectly stylish fashion,” ends Hung.

carries the latest styles, from footwear to apparel, bags, and even
accessories. The brand aims to be a one-stop-shop for all women’s
fashion needs by making their collection of wearable and stylish
products available online, with multi-delivery services that ensure
everyone gets quality products in the most convenient way possible.
collections feature varying looks that will fit numerous aesthetics,
but are still anchored on a style sensibility that is meant to stand
the test of time. This does not only refer to designs that will
weather changing fashion trends, but it also speaks of the quality of
the different pieces.
I find USOplus.com easy to navigate. Products can easily be filtered by category,
style, size, brand, color, or pricing. The ecommerce site guides
consumers every step of the way, from choosing the payment method up
to delivery type. They have both credit card and cash on delivery for payment option, and have free shipping via LBC, Air21 and Ximen Delivery Express (XDE). In the future, they will have the option of picking up your package in Wellcome convenience stores throughout the country.
With items ranging from accessories, to clothing, bags, and shoes, USOplus carries popular Korean, Taiwanese and Japanese brands OB
Design, STARMIMI, EYESCREAM, Ruby’s Collection, Basic, and so much more.
USOplus upholds the ultimate shopping experience – beginning with the wide selection of fashionable and functional products – down to the simplicity with which you can pay for your purchases and have them delivered to you.
After the program, it was my turn to shoot! First the BTS photos:
Had fun with Carizza at the shoot, the confetti was all over us!
Then tada! Scroll down to see how the photos turned out:
I trooped over to the dessert buffet after the shoot, and there were just too many yummy pastries, cakes, and fruits!
Ava was there as well, I even let her borrow my shoes because the ones she had on didn’t go with her chosen USOplus outfit!
