Something a bit different today; I didn't use to review clothing, but recently I changed the description in my "contact me" tab saying that I would. I was pretty happy when a short time later I was contacted by Sammy Dress! Communication with the company wasn't exactly the smoothest, but I was surprisingly pleased with the items I received. I'm very honest in my reviews, so I'll tell you everything that happened.
They asked me to choose a few things, so I did. Then came a long drama of finding things that were in stock - something I found quite annoying and time-consuming. They don't have a note next to the product saying whether it's in stock or not, which is quite a problem (on the upside, their site is very user-friendly and easy to navigate). I ended up just emailing them a list of things that I liked and they told me which ones were in stock. It took about six emails to sort that out.
Then they wanted me to put their banner up in my sidebar, and I wasn't keen on doing that until I had received the goods and knew that it was a company I wanted to endorse. I said no, they asked again, then again. In the meantime I had done a bit of a background check on the company and found plenty of shocking reviews - based mostly on the quality of the clothing and the long delivery - in some cases the lack of delivery. I told them again that I wasn't going to put their banner up until the items arrived (for all I knew, they wouldn't) and added that if they didn't want to go through with the review it was fine by me.
They gave in to stubborn lil' me and said they'd send the package.
By this stage I was quite a bit put off them and wishing I hadn't replied to their email. I decided to wait and see what the clothing was like once it arrived, and didn't have high expectations. I wasn't looking forward to writing my first 100% bad review.
But then the clothes arrived... and I love them!!
|Just realised I should have probably ironed this before taking photos... oops!|
I was actually so shocked. I got two items of clothing; one the cute little dress you see above. It's a gorgeous floaty chiffon dress, and I will be wearing it regularly (even though it's turning into winter - leggings and cardigan it is!). Floral patterns are my favourite, and I decided to copy the design on to my nails.
I loved the nails, too! More photos of them coming soon.
