First of all why are you only asking for a parital refund? You deserve the entire $900 as she blantantly lied to you. Ugh this makes my stomach hurt reading this, I am so sorry. i really hope you get all your money back.
Put pictures up of the dress you got and what you were suppose to get. Then we will see if they are similar or not. Either way that really sucks:(
You should be asking for the total in return if you payed for one thing and got another, no matter how similar it is.
can you post the bee’s username and the thread in which she said it was the allure8634 she was selling?
I would definitely edit your paypal claim for the entire $900. She purposefully misled you and sold you the wrong dress. Make sure you don’t delete any of your communication, as you’ll be able to give it to paypal to support your claim. Take pictures of the dress she sent (and if possible take screen shots of her ad with pictures in it if she had them, as well as the second ad) and find a stock photo of the dress it was supposed to be.
Oh I hope this all works out for you.
1. You should demand a full refund and return the dress. You would probably have to pay for shipping it back.
2. You should go to local bridal boutiques and try on sample dresses. I bought my dress as a store sample when they were changing their stock and got a hefty discount. The sample is 2-3 sizes too big but alterations only take 2 months from a sample that’s too big.
i understand the whole py it forward thing but really you should not reward someone who lied to you in order to get money. i would ask for the whole cost back and offer to retun the dress. have you possibly tried Ebay? there are a lot of allure dresses there for farily inexpensive or for something that is the same style that is a great price and you can get in a hurry check out forherandforhim.com i know its not allure but it might be more comfortabe price and time wise.
just doing a google search for the p850 pulls up the add here in the classified section and if that is the add you are referring to the sell price listed is $750 so eaither way it looks like you got ripped off.
I agree, you should get a full refund. Don’t try and be overly nice and make yourself a doormat.
You paid for an item and received the wrong one, end of story.
If you have a sob story you can have alterations done even faster. I booked mine in advance but its only taking 5 days for the first fitting with a lady who usualy insists on 3 months.
I hope that you get all of your money back, so you can buy the dress you want!!
You deserve the $900 back, no doubt about it. And the seller can have her remake confusion of a dress back. If paypal doesn’t work out… then you could possibly win in small claims court. Did the seller ever send you a photo of the dress including the tag?
Btw, I’m so sorry this happened to you, you must be incredibly stressed. We’re here for you!
I feel bad but here it is… the thread she posted on is real brides wearing allure 8634? and her post is 17. down. You can see her email address there and if you put it in to the ‘search’ it brings up another post by her where she is selling the dress I received for 750$. Oh, It makes me feel physically sick just looking at it.
Thank you for the advice. I have already prepared a whole folder with ‘evidence’ so I can only hope…But it is ultimately her word against mine as I do not know how dishonest she is and how far she will take this. She must have some kind of a story to tell and being that she is evil enough to do what she did to me, I’m not getting my hopes up. I am going to check if I can edit the claim to a ‘full refund’… I should probably not even mention that I had to pay duty on the dress as I am in England and she is in Indiana USA. The whole things is just…terrible!
