♥ Sponsored Review! ♥
Remember~ I only work with sponsors I like or approach myself because I want to feature them anyway ^^
The Jamy is a new online shop for Korean fashion that just came on the scene last fall! Although they are the new kids on the block, they sure pack quite a decent selection compaired to other “Korean Fashion” online shops. Some stores online will market themselves as “Korean fashion” when they are really just poorly made replicas or extremely over-priced, but The Jamy actually works together with several legitimate online Korean shops & brands acting as a middle man for international shoppers who are almost always unable to shop with all the adorable stores here since they require things like a Korean bank account and transfers.
All of the listed brands The Jamy sells are actually real active Korean online shops selling the exact same things for a very close price~ and for the icing on the cake
The Jamy offers FREE shipping when you spend over $150! Scratch that, Now they offer FREE SHIPPING no matter what you spend!!! Getting goodies sent from Asia alone is expensive, so free shipping saves you a bunch!
The Jamy allows you to shop for the latest Korean Fashion~
New items are added to the shop everyday from the 24 Korean shops/brands The Jamy currently works with, and because they are updating so frequently you can have access to many of the new items at the same time as the Korean shoppers do here so you can keep up with what is hot in the stores here each season.
The way The Jamy works is you order your items through them, they will either have the items in stock or notify the Korean shops to send the items to their location in Korea. Everything is packed nicely into one box and sent out to you! Because of this, sometimes it can take an extra few days to get the items from the individual Korean online fashion shops (kind of like how international G-market works) but it is worth it because everything is combined into a single box for shipping.
Let’s take a glance at some of the popular Korean shops on The Jammy~ Which one is right for you?
Keep in mind, this is not a full list! They have added more brands since I posted! Current listing HERE
Of course you can always shop at The Jamy by category (dress, jacket, shoes, etc) but if you are looking for a certain style of clothing you can also shop with them by store/brand on the index page~ for me this saves a little time since they have SO much stuff it can be overwhelming! Usually I hop into my favorite sellers first since they match my taste, then I wander around the entire site by category and check out the sales. I would like to give you a brief glimpse at some of the Korean brand shops they work with~
I will note my personal favorite places to visit weekly for new stock~

The Jamy Korean Fashion Haul
So for this posting The Jamy sent me an awesome box of goodies to enjoy!!
Shipping was very fast overall, but one Korean store was a little slower (not Jamy’s fault though) Just keep that in mind while waiting for products! If you buy from several stores The Jamy has to wait for each store items to arrive. Most stores are very fast though, in Korea stores generally are expected to ship out within a day or two from buyers, so they are expected to be prompt.
Everything was packed nicely in the box and each item was wrapped individually.
They also stuck in a thank you letter along with some always handy Korean face masks as a gift!
And here is what I picked out!!! I ordered a knit sweater, dot blouse, long knit top, floral ruffle top, yellow+ blue striped dress, checker mini dress, studded white flats, and a few accessories! Overall my favorite stores to buy from were Aura-J and Pink n Babi, but I did find cute items in every shop 😀
I’m loving these awesome spike flats from Korean Shop Aura-J on The Jamy! The studs are clamped on firmly, nice thick sole, and was true to my size! Nara and I are both in love with studded things right now, so I will get a lot of use out of these on days I don’t want to be stumbling around the street in heels! The studs are nice metal ones too, so the shoes look like they cost 2x more.
♥ ♥ ♥
Heel piece did require a small bit of shoe glue to stick it on a bit firmer, but that is a common thing with Korean shoes~ sometimes you just need a little dab extra! No big deal 😛
I was super happy with each of these jewelry pieces in terms of quality and for the price~ especially the bracelet! I thought it would be plastic, but it is actually a really nice heavy metal with mirrors and only cost a few dollars!
My new over-sized rose ruffle collar shirt from Pink n Babi! The print is so pretty~
I seriously love how cute everything in that shop is~ ruffles and bows forever!
LOVE this cut out sleeve blouse from Aura-J! It’s perfect for summer, especially in Korea where you can not really wear tank tops in the summer~ so lots of girls rock tops like this with bits cut out lol.
My excited reaction is for an amazing interview I had last week~ post coming soon! 😉
Two pieces I have been using the most are totally the black sweater (its actually a boys product so Nara uses it too!) and this really cute and super cheap pearl row ring that only cost a few dollars!
Side Note~ Want proof that you are buying new and current Korean clothing for fair prices? This sweater I ordered through The Jamy and I actually spotted here in Seoul a few weeks later at a shop, but it was about $10 more. Spotted it in another shop the other day and they wanted double the price!
The mint sweater looked SO pretty in person, it was such a beautiful color~ soft, but still very vibrant! The material was also very soft and loosely knit so it is perfect for spring~ or later on with a tank top under it. I was especially drawn to it by how long it was, I like to buy things with longer cuts so length is a main thing I look at when shopping for Korean fashion clothing online.
Checker Dress pic coming soon
The checker dress is super fun and the material was a lot nicer vs what I expected + nice and thick so I can wear it into the fall no problem! It was a LOT shorter than I expected so my butt hangs out a little bad haha I have to layer it with an additional black ruffle shirt to keep it as a dress or some back leggings~ but that happens to me a lot with Korean and Japanese clothing so I have a box of skirts just for doing this hehe. I will have to share some tips about this in a future post maybe. Nara has a similar patterned jacket, so we really want to wear these together to an event sometime!
Yellow Dress pic coming soon
This dress Nara picked out for me because he liked the colors a lot and I tend to not buy yellow~ it is really pretty in person and the fabric is very light+ lined so no see-through issues. Only bummer is I gained a bit of weight lately so my chest is too big for the dress right now since it does not stretch (-_-;) When I gain weight it always goes to my boobs and thighs first lol. If you have a curvy figure you should stick to fabric with a bit of stretch or you run a risk of this happening like I did. I will take some pretty pics in a few weeks after I drop the weight again!
Nara’s Haul from The Jamy
Pics coming soon
If you are a male reader, like larger loose fit clothing like my sweater above, or feel like buying something for that boy in your life do not worry~ The Jamy also has partnered with a number of men’s clothing shops here in Korea! Nara ordered this really useful loose fit stripe shirt (I have been stealing it though… it’s very comfortable lol), a really cute spring jacket, and a cool bracelet since we all kinda know by now Nara loves to accessorize haha.
The fit of everything varied depending on the clothing style~ so just keep that in mind when shopping and eyeball the measurements if you are not sure! Nara was very happy with the quality of all the items though, everything was well-made and with very nice materials ^^
Final Thoughts / Jamy Review
– Love everything I ordered! Happy with the quality of everything+ presently surprised with a few!
– Sizing varies so mind the measurements posted. Things may fit a bit shorter if you have a larger bust
– If you are curvy stick to loose fits or stretch
– Pricing is extremely fair for nicer “brand” Korean clothing, similar to what you pay here!
– Things go in and out of stock fast because you are buying along with shoppers in Korea
-Always CHECK the Korean shop listing they link to see if item is in stock before buying to avoid headaches.
– New inventory is added daily and always changing so keep an eye out for new goodies. Buy quickly before they sell out.
– Some items may have a factory smell at first (due to dye or material) air out for a day and it goes away!
Ordering on The Jamy
On every product page you will see a “Double Confirm if this item is available” link right at the top of the listing
When placing orders with The Jamy, it is important that you check to make sure the item you want is still in stock since some Korean shops have a limited amount of items and The Jamy has a large amount of products displayed and things that are out of stock do slip in.
The link will direct you to the same item listing on the Korean brand site where you can check at the top to see if it appears to be in stock, if it is out of stock you will see 품절 displayed clearly in this area or the link will not work/redirect you to the store homepage.
♥ ♥ ♥
If the product is in multiple colors a drop down menu will be there for you to also click, and if a single color is sold out it often be next to the color~ The Jamy displays the Korean next to the English so you can usually compare easily to find your color if the Korean shop does not list it in English.
The newer the items are in the shop, the more likely they are to be in stock (so like the first 5 pages, after that the items are older listings so you should check)
You do not HAVE to check of course, but it does save time and avoids you being disappointed~items do frequently sell out!
The Jamy will ship anywhere in the world that EMS can deliver to!!
