So I’m sure I’m not the only one that constantly sees cute outfits from online boutiques on their Facebook news feed or from Google sponsored ads, so I thought it might be a good idea to start a thread of experiences with different boutiques!
Darling Husband ordered a few items for me from an online boutique, and I honestly did not research them before he placed the order. He just showed me the outfits, asked if I liked them, what color I liked best, and what size I thought I would need. Their website looked legitimate. We ordered about $200 worth of stuff, and that was back on May 20th! We hadn’t gotten a shipping notification by the 2nd week in June, so we were a little concerned and looked for reviews on their Facebook page, which they have disabled.. but all of their posts had nasty comments posted by people who had purchased stuff.. so I’m pretty sure we will never see the clothes. Most of these comments said “Don’t order from them – I ordered clothes 2 months ago and have not received anything and have not been refunded” or “I ordered several items and only received one low quality dress that wasn’t even what I ordered. I was not able to return or receive a refund as the dispute period had passed.” or “I’m still waiting on a response because my order never came in. I’ve been told to email someone and no one will respond to me!!”
We filed a dispute with Paypal, but they gave the seller a chance to respond to us, which they did. They said it takes 3-5 weeks for shipping, so that we just need to be patient. We got a shipping notification the next day, but it still says the package is in China over 2 weeks later (I didn’t realize it was being shipped from China, neither did Darling Husband but he prob didn’t pay attention). I know that most of the time you cannot file a Paypal dispute after 30 days, which would make sense as to why they say 3-5 weeks for shipping. I’m not sure if we will be able to update the dispute if we still don’t get our order, since we technically already entered a dispute before 30 days. Anyone have experience with this?
Anyways…have you ordered from any online boutiques? Which ones? Did you like the clothes you received? Good quality? Did it take a long time to get your order? I want to know good and bad both, because I see tons of cute outfits that I want, but I’m too scared to order from another boutique unless I know I’m going to get what I paid for.
Burlap Apparel is the boutique we ordered from – so I would warn anyone to stay away from them.. I will update this if we ever receive the order!
