I've been hoodwinked!

The dress came yesterday. Ahem. I said the DRESS came YESTERDAY. So why wasn't I all excited and rushing to make a post about it?

Because it FAILED.

Lol. I'm sorry I don't have more pictures, my camera died and no AA batteries in this house. But this dress failed to meet my expectations. Look at my back, you can see the beading is completely different than in the picture. Not only that, beading was hanging off of the sleeves.

The design was so simple, with these big plastic, rainbow reflecting beads. It looked like someone's reindition of the dress in the photo they advertised.

How could this have happened to me? I thought the plan was fool proof. The member on ebay has been selling dresses for years, and I read through the reviews. They all said "The dress was perfect! Exactly like the picture! I will buy from this person again!" Maybe my dress was the oddity?

I'm just glad that I made sure to go with a seller who guaranteed full money back. I wrote to the seller stating that I was not happy, and they were very cordial. They apologized and stood by their word of saying I can get a full refund. I'm shipping this baby back today.

(Sigh) The search for a dress is still on.


  1. OH NO! :( You were kinda worried that it might be too good to be true right? I guess it was. Which is why it's so awesome that you've started so early. This is like not even a big deal for you. As your calendar says you have 11 months and 13 days lol.

    Good luck with the rest of the search

  2. Sorry it didn't work out. Was the seller in the US?

    I'm sure you'll find something even beter soon!

  3. Ugh, that's disappointing. But yes, it's a great thing that you started so early AND you get a full refund.

  4. That sucks! That's the challenge of shopping online. Good thing you have enough time to return AND you dealt with a reputable seller.
