Never Again

I thought I’d learned my lesson with ordering things online (especially on sale) with this skirt a while ago. But no, apparently I didn’t, because when I saw this shirt for sale on Zalora, I ordered it. It’s a bit different from my normal silhouette, but the website says it’s cotton, so I thought it would be a nice addition to my summer wardrobe. Then I got it and was sorely disappointed. It definitely isn’t cotton (it’s some sort of cotton-polyester blend) and it’s way shorter than I expected – it doesn’t help that I have a long torso. You can see how I slumped a bit in the photos, because if I stood up straight, it would be a crop top on me. And of course, it was on sale so I couldn’t return or exchange it. I don’t have anything high-waist, so I’m going to try it with a skirt next time to see if it can be improved; if not, maybe it can fit my mom. I just hope this is going to be the last time I made this mistake.

    Ugh… I’ve done that before; ordered clothes online and then they’re not what I expected to get once they arrive. Even after reading the description VERY CAREFULLY, I still sometimes end up with pants that are too big or shirts that are too small, or vise versa.
    But yet, I still do it from time to time as I’m just too lazy to go out to an actual store to buy what I need. Guess I haven’t learned my lesson yet…

    It actually looks decent with the jacket over it.

    Clothes are tricky to order online.

    I’ve even ordered leggings thinking that was something safe and they’ve come in a weird wonky material.

    I’ve also heard you have to be careful with many overseas online sellers.

  3. What a shame, it looks cute! I’ve fallen into the online shopping trap, too. 😦

    That’s a great shame!! Could you possibly wear it over a shift dress at all??
