Happy Holidays Everyone!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's celebration.
It's been a little while since I've last made a post. The post-holiday has really made me want to just kick back and hibernate.
Anyway, I've been wanting to post a review on the recent purchase I made from wholesale-dress.net (blog post here) - I stopped procrastinating and finally got around to doing it. Hurray!
So, I submitted my order from the wholesale-dress.net site on Dec. 10, 2010, and they shipped out my order by FedEx on December 14, 2010. When I first tracked down my order, it was supposed to be delivered on December 17 (which is really quite fast), however due to an incorrect address labeled on the box (the room # wasn't included) I had to sort it our with FedEx and finally got my package on December 21st.
Alright enough of that, on to the clothing...
Turtleneck Sweater Dress
Overall, I like this sweater dress. The material is ok, not as soft as I would've liked but its ok. This sweater came in only in one size, but I would say it fits like a US size M - so it's a little big on me since I'm a little petite, but I like it loose so it works out. Most of all, the actual sweater looks exactly like the photo on the website - that's a big plus in my book.
Round Neck Sweater
This one I really like. It came on more mustard-y that on the photo, but I like it. Quality is almost the same as the first sweater. This also came in only in one size - so again I would say it fits like a size M - however, I like it a little loose so no complaints.
Polka Dots Sweater Dress
This one I absolutely love. The quality of the sweater is really soft and it flows nicely around the body. My photo don't do it justice (room was really dark) but it looks exactly like the photo on the website. Oh, this one had a dolman sleeve which can't be seen on either photos. Fit wise, again, its a little on the loose side but I like it that way.
Nautical Stripe Sweater
This sweater I'm not a huge fan of. I don't like the quality, i feel like its too thin. The material is a loose-knit fabric - which is alright but I was expecting something else because of the photo on the website.
Also, the length of the sweater is a little bit short - and that's saying something because I'm a petite girl. I was just expecting something that'll hit somewhere by the hip... this one lands right by the waist.
This is another piece that I loved. The quality is good - its a thick jersey material - which'll really keep me warm during the in between months. Also, the length is perfect, it hits somewhere around below the hip, kind of like what is shown on the website photo. It's just slightly big on me since this also came in one size only.
One thing though, the hood is a little small, I'm sure I don't just have a big head...
Jacket with Sherling Collar
This is the absolute disappointment of all. This came in a micro-suede like material! I mean, seriously, the website photo looks like its made of faux leather with nice faux fur - and it came in in really poorly finished jacket with thread hanging all over, fur falling off, material made of thin faux suede (kinda like what they use fr boots),and aweful color. It's only redeeming quality is that it fits perfect on me, but that's it.
High Waisted Belter Faux Leather Shorts
This one is nice, not as nice as I would've imagined (I was thinking more like Zara, so yeah should not expect that next time). The quality itself is just alright. The fit is a lot big on me...maybe I'm just really short, but even at waist-length, it's way long. Color-wise, it's the same as the photo and overall it looks like how it should based on the photo on the website.
Nothing much to say. It did not come in the same material as what is shown on the website photo, and I feel it's shorter and not as wide as on the photo. However, it's a scarf and it serves it purpose. Overall, It's acceptable for me.
Owl Earring & Retro Style Earring
Owl - Quality: ♥♥♥♥♥
Retro-style - Quality: ♥♥♥♥♡
Both the earring came in really nicely. The owl came in with perfect quality, but the retro one is a little less than perfect, but that's juts nit-picking it. That said, I really didn't mind the imperfections for the amount I paid for, and I've already worn these many times and have received complements on them.
So there you go. I hope this helps someone who's debating whether to buy from wholesale-dress.net or not.
Overall, I do recommend to purchase from this website, although since you are paying super low prices just don't expect super top quality for them. Also, the actual merchandise may or may not look exactly like the photo on their website, but it'll be close - just bear this in mind.
