So if you remember, this was the item I purchased from YESSTYLE aaand…in person….it’s nothing like it looks like on the picture. WELL, on the model anyway. However much I was expecting this to happen, of course nothing looks EXACTLY as it does online, I was still quite disappointed to find it hangs nowhere near in a similar fashion to the way it hangs on the model, it looks slightly sinched in just above the waist which was the look liked, the shoulder does not stretch far enough to become an off-the-shoulder-top and since the photo of this girl must have been photo-shopped so much, it does not hang near my thighs, it’s more like down to my knees and very much like an over sized t-shirt more than a dress top which was what it was supposed to be. This was £22!! I can’t believe it, when I first got it today I was so annoyed to find it just looked like a sumos pyjama t-shirt. Gawd. But I’ve decided that since refunds don’t come easily on Yesstyle, unless there’s a genuine reason other than you don’t like it, that I’ll keep it and (because it’s good quality) I’ll either wear it with skinny jeans and tuck it in on one side which looks alright OR I’ll figure out what I’d like it to look like an alter it or take it to be altered.
One reason it probably looks different, apart from the photoshopping, is because, well, she’s korean (the model) and she’s got such adifferent figure to me, she’s slimmer and maybe a bit taller.
It’s good material to make a personal t-shirt with, I just wish it looked more like I’d expected. It’s my own fault! But I’ve cheered myself up, it does look nice and comfy, just not the way I wanted!
Even though this has happened, I’ll probably still buy stuff from YESSTYLE just because it is such a good site but I’m definitely thinking more than twice before I buy. This time I wanted it because it looked good on her, I’m going to be thinking about what will look good on me form now on. (:
Helluuuu everyone, since I don’t have anything planned to write about today regarding language or culture I think I’m just going to blog about last night’s endeavours. Basically me and my sister always look at YESASIA.CO.UK (.com If you’re in the US) which sells media like music and films and also little accessories and collectibles and also YESSTYLE.CO.UK which sells clothes and accessories.
Now YESSTYLE had an offer on where most items were 10% off AND everything had FREE SHIPPING. Oh mi gawd. My sister and I decided to wait (stupidly) till the last day of the offer, which was yesterday, to try and take advantage of this offer and buy whatever we wanted despite having countless emails about this offer. Long story short, I ended up scouring the Korean Fashion section for hours until 10:30pm on my laptop and, when I thought I’d figured out what I wanted, realized I didn’t have any money in my account, only in cash. My sister then told me we could just ask our dad to use his card and then give him the money back, which ended up being fine, but then my dad told me he didn’t want me paying for it on my laptop because apparently it doesn’t have enough security. IT DOES. But that’s beside the point.
I ended up using the PC downstairs to pay for my stuff which was a fag and a half because I had to log into everything again and then I had to find my items which I ended up changing! By now it’s around 11:00pm which is when my sister decides to tell me I’ve only got about 50 minutes left to decide which items I want to we can pay for them. I’m going nuts here, we’re both starting to go past the exhausted stage into hyper and so after trailing around the T-shirt dresses (which my sister hates) and enduring my sibling’s constant insults about how I’m not picking the right clothes for my figure, I was set on two items. At this point it’s getting a bit crazy and my sister is doing Gok Wan impressions in an attempt to try and get me to buy something more flattering, although she did like the grey hangy, loosey top I bought. I’m just more of a comfy person!! (I do love fashion though.) We did eventually buy them…and then sat around in her room till 12:00pm laughing at ourselves.
Oh what is my life.
Here’s the items I bought!
aaaaaand I can’t find the other item so if it’s been removed, looks like I got there just in time! Once it comes in the post though I’ll put up a picture of it! Both items are T-shirt dresses under the tab Korean Fashion, Dresses, T-Shirt dresses.
-Since I haven’t planned any posts yet (although don’t get me wrong I’ll still be posting!) please, if you have any questions about ANYTHING or requests for a post, comment in the ask me section! I’ll either reply directly or write an article on it. 🙂 Ta!
