Internet shopping can be great, easy to get things at the touch of a button (too easy sometimes), which is fine if you know exactly what you want, but a pain if you need to see the style or fit or quality of something. I have been caught out so many times it puts me off shopping. I am always wary of spending too much and often place items in my “basket” and then delete them all as I can’t justify the need. This week two items have arrived that I am really disappointed with a cardigan
that was in a sale, the full price was £39.99. Thankfully I only paid £12.50, but when it arrived and I put it on it was itchy, poor quality and badly finished and smelly and huge, its a size 8, but think it would fit a 16! I don’t mind it being big and baggy,but….. In my frustration I put it to wash to get rid of the itching and smell, I should have sent it back, but I am stuck with it now. Another order arrived this week too a coat , and I am very disappointed with it, it doesn’t fasten up to the neck and gapes, the colour is much duller than I wanted and the shaping is strange, not at all as it appears on the model. I am trying to return the item, but as it has shipped from Hong Kong I am having difficulty. I was not aware when I placed the order that it was not being sold by Amazon and is not covered by their returns policy. As usual I had tried to get something cheaper than the item I really wanted as its only for taking Emily to school and the like and was not worth paying a lot for, and I didn’t want to pay ridiculous shipping prices, but I got caught out as usual, there is no such thing as a bargain! The one I really wanted was this one,
but wasn’t sure on the sizing and it cost more than I wanted to pay and again is not sold by Amazon.
I have found some others now, but am stuck with the one I don’t like 🙁 This one at cotton traders
and ASOS or Macy’s
