How many of you have tried to buy clothes online? I've never done it, but after seeing so many sellers with their enticing pictures of clothes on Korean models, I decided to give it a try. So I made my order and patiently waited for more than a week. What came next surprised me. Upon inspection of the dress, I found the stitching to be loose and not layered on. There was actually a part wherein the stitching had already gone loose; I don't think it was worth the P800+ I paid for excluding shipping.
When I tried the dress on, that's when I noticed that there was already a rip in the waistline. It was small, around 1 cm, but the threads around that area was coming loose too, and it seems inevitable that the surrounding areas will unravel too. I contacted the seller I bought it from and asked if I could get a replacement. She told me that she'd contact the supplier and that she'd do her best to get the dress replaced. When she got back to me, she told me that she argued with the supplier but the supplier refused to replace the dress, saying that the damage was small and could be repaired. She offered to refund me the profit she made from the dress, which was P150. I explained to her that having the dress repaired might cost more than P150, because to remove the damage would mean removing that entire area.
She then offered to replace the dress with another style that she had on-hand stocks of. But I could only choose from three styles because those were the only ones left, but I decided not to because of the following reasons: 1.) I didn't really like any of the three 2.) The three dresses were all worth less than what I paid for 3.) She didn't offer to reimburse my shipping.
So, I decided to just take the P150 and use that money to have the dress altered. And there you go, my first time to buy clothing online was a major fail. I don't think I'll be doing this again anytime soon :(
