Learn From Me: Don’t Order Cheap Clothing From Those Ads on Facebook [OPINION]
Sure, I'll buy these tops and dresses for $9.99. **Gets package in the mail** WHAT HAVE I DONE?!
I made a mistake. Usually, I can make sure that I don't 'derp' in real life, but when it comes to finding inexpensive deals online for clothes, I am a sucker. In the real world, I would've turned my nose up at the deal that was being advertised on Facebook for FashionMia.com. But since it's online, I got super excited to handover money for clothes that did not make the grade. I hope that you learn from me and not make the same mistake I have. Here's what happened:
I ordered the clothes on the website, I got really excited about it and knew that since it was all being shipped from a different country that it would take a bit to arrive at my doorstep. What I didn't realize is that I would get a big 'ol delivery of disappointment. It took over a month to arrive, and what came in the packages, was the most ill fitting and cheaply made clothing I have ever seen.
This green velvet dress that I bought to wear to an upcoming wedding isn't bad. It is not the greatest dress in the world, and it was actually suppose to be below my knee. I know I am tall, but really? I will wear it to the wedding, but that's pretty much it. I'm just hoping that it doesn't unravel when I am wearing it.
Now this is just sad. This is sized, XXXXL. I am not kidding you. It is only a few inches wider in the chest than my hairspray can. I know that unit of measurement is super scientific, but still, how is this suppose to fit a grown woman? It barely fits a child!
What I learned:
Don't do it. Don't buy clothing from those ads you see on Facebook because you will be super mad when you finally get your package. I had high hopes. I didn't think the clothes were going to be the best ever, but I never dreamed that the clothes would be so crappy that I can't even, in good conscious, donate them to someone who would like them because no one would! Please do not make the same mistake I did.
