So, the other day, My Midlife Fashion posted a pic of herself in a black dress WITH THE PEARLS so now I'm in love not only with the pearls again but the dress she has worn them with. Cue a quick log on to Zara.com and my order was placed for both items.
Here is the dress on the website - honestly, I wouldn't have looked twice at it if I hadn't seen my lovely new friend in hers. Have you ever seen such a miserable uninspiring model?
Here is My Midlife Fashion in hers, talk about wow wow wow
So mine arrived, looking just as dull and boxy as it does on the Zara website
And the pearls I KNEW were meant to be mine arrived looking stunning.
So I carefully put the dress on as there is not a zip, it's just a pop on over your head type of dress and then I heard and felt a PING .. the stitch to hold your modesty in broke - I actually nearly cried! It's needed for a reason, without it the dress DOES NOT WORK ON ANY LEVEL - evidence here .... nice bra though don't you think?!
So now I have to return the item and I'm in two minds if I should ask for an exchange or just a refund? I have NO NEED (at this time) for a black dress, just thought it would be a good one to have as I only have one other in my wardrobe and what kind of person only as 1 LBD to wear?
So, refund or exchange?
