Cyber NOT! Worst On-Line Shopping Sites

Posted By: Terri
Category: Uncategorized

Earlier this morning as I was attempting to pedal off the Thanksgiving Day pounds on said stationary bike and chatting with my friend Tanya at break neck speed (too bad talking doesn’t burn calories) we both stopped mid pedal as this article popped up on my news feed via my phone  conveniently perched on the handle bars. It read “Top 8 On-Line Retailers to Avoid from Being Ripped Off.” We both took note immediately because let’s face it no one wants to be at the mercy of some deceptive retailer. As  a major shopper in my own right and one that instills honesty be it retail or otherwise I felt compelled to report this to all you lovely Glamour Girls ASAP! Take note and avoid at all possible costs because in the end that’s what they will do-COST YOU! Happy Cyber Monday -“Go Forth and Shop Safely.”

1. TwinkleDeals.com

Better Business Bureau cites nearly $15,000 in claimed losses from this retailer. On SiteJabber.com, 313 of 460 total reviewers give the company just one star. One reviewer noted, “I have ever before seen quality this poor. Garments were missing hems, sections of fabric were hanging out of seems, sizes were off by a great deal. The garments did not function as clothing on a basic level. Don’t even try to return the stuff.”

2. Wish.com

This is not a BBB-accredited company, though the bureau registered 235 complaints for it over the last three years. They call the company out for advertising and sales issues, billing and collection problems, delivery issues, warranty problems—but most of all for problems with products (with 177 of the reviewers registering such complaints).

3. FashionMia.com

Of nearly 1,600 reviews on SiteJabber, nearly 900 give it the lowest possible rating. Among the typical complaints is sizing that’s way off scale. “Even though I ordered extra large, the clothes all looked like they were made for ten year old!” one reviewer noted.

4. SammyDress.com

Better Business Bureau has not accredited this China-based business, and gives it an F rating (yes, on a scale that goes up to A+). The bureau has in fact issued an alert against the company after the bureau tried to contact it in an attempt to develop a report, but the post office returned the mail.

5. Rosegal.com

SiteJabber reviewers slam this company, with more than 3,000 reviewers giving it a pathetic one-star rating out of five. On Reddit, people talking about the company complain of ill-fitting, poorly made merchandise, and call the whole thing a scam. “I honestly would not even donate these ‘clothes’ to Goodwill, as they are not only unfashionable, they are not even functional as real clothing,” one Redditor wrote. “Paper thin and laughably assembled, their items are the equivalent of something you might win at a roadside carnival.”

6. DressLily.com

A measly few hundred reviewers on SiteJabber give this company a satisfactory rating; more than 2,000 of 3,000 reviewers give it one star. Choice words from reviews include “trash,” “fraud,” “ugly,” and “thieves.”

7. BeckyDress.com

While SiteJabber contains far fewer reviews for this site—150 compared to several thousand for some of the other businesses on this list—most of those give the lowest rating possible. People cite receiving products that look nothing like the photos on the company’s website, constructed shoddily enough to constitute fraud.

8. Zaful.com

This is not a BBB-accredited business, though it does receive an F rating from the bureau. Nearly 600 reviewers out of 830 on SiteJabber give it the lowest possible rating, citing issues like “cheap quality” and “refused to resolve an error.” Seems like Zaful should be renamed “awful” based on customer experience

Here’s a little style reminder that  just may come in handy (especially during the holidays-when time management is at an all time high)-Leopard is a neutral and can be paired up with just about anything  to make an outfit look sleek and stylish.  Sooo when you find yourself dressing at warp speed but you want to look like you actually had oodles of time to put some serious fashion thought into your outfit-just pair it with some form of animal print accent and whah lah-instant style! You need only keep one simple style rule in mind-it’s best to wear only ONE animal print at a time.  Happy styling!

Winter White done Right!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

Winter White is soooo beautiful BUT  it has to be done right. To keep your look sleek and stylish follow these simple rules:

winter-white-and-beige-handbag

#1. Wearing white head to toe needn’t be tricky. If you don’t have a full out ensemble already in your closet you can mix different textures of white and whah- lah “major style statement. ” Bear in mind that when wearing all white make sure your shoes and accessories have some sort od detailing or interest to keep the eye engaged. (Note the gold platform on her shoe below? Of course you did -See it adds interest -point taken).

#2. Don’t be afraid to add a POP of color when wearing all white. To make a statement opt for only  ONE POP OF COLOR.

#3. We all know that white goes with everything but remember lighter colors can make an area appear larger and that’s not just in your rear view mirror. If you’re looking to appear slimmer and taller opt for darker colors on the bottom and keep the lighter winter white hues  closer to your face. If however you are very slim on the lower part of your body and want to make that area appear larger than by all means wear white on the bottom half and know that most of us are jealous-but in a good way!

Finally…. Winter white is beautiful (we’ve established that) but always remember these two most fundamental style rules when it comes to wearing white- no matter what  the Season : Never ever under any circumstances wear white to a wedding UNLESS the bride has instructed you to do so or you are the Bride and it’s your wedding.  winter-white-wedding Last but not least always and I DO mean Always make sure when sporting white pants, skirts, shorts, dresses, (you get the picture) that the item is made well  enough or in a fabrication thick enough that it is not transparent enabling one to see what’s going on underneath aka visible  panty lines ….when it doubt have item lined.
