I hate to post bad reviews, but at the same time, I hate to refer you’all over to a website I didn’t have a great experience with. I love it when websites are willing to let me pick items from their site to try out and do appreciate it, but at the same time, I’m not going to shoo you all to a site that wasn’t up to my standards. And let’s be honest here, my stands aren’t that high!
It all started a bit sour, to be honest. I was originally contacted about reviewing a product from DressLilly on the 26th December, I picked a lovely dress and waited. After forgetting about it completely, but then coming across the site again, I remembered that my dress had never arrived! I contacted the PR who said they had forgot to send it and to pick sometime else. I picked two more items and replied on the 5th February. I only received the items last week – almost two months after! I can’t say if this is a reflection of delivery time to their paying customers though. Flat rate shipping is stated to take 10 to 20 business days according to the website. It is always hard to tell when not ordering directly from the site. It could be that the PR I dealt with did not process the order quickly.
The dress does have a lovely pattern on it, but I’m not a fan of the quality. The lace detail around the collar is really poorly sewn and cotton threads were fraying from a few areas of the dress.
I often talk about some items not being the best quality, but that is to be expected for the cheap price. These items are usually on par with Primark in terms of quality which is something I can accept and deal with if I’m not spending many ££££, but unfortunately I found this dress to be of a worse quality of that, it was to the point where I would not want to wear this out of the house. I’ve taken some detailed pictures, just so you can see what I am talking about and make your own decision.
I am hoping that this is just a one off, and this dress is just faulty or there is something with it!
I do really love the pattern though, it is just a pity about the lace and collar.
