What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
I LOVE Amazon Prime. Free shipping, free returns, it’s a win-win kinda situation. But I also know that ordering off of Amazon, especially clothes, can be a gamble. You never know what you’re gonna get, or what size it’s gonna be, or if it will look anything like the pictures.
So I thought this would be a fun series to try! What I ordered…and what actually came. The winners get to live in my closet, the losers go back to Amazon.
Winner: Mesh Yoga Pants.
Technical name: FeelinGirl Women’s Breathable Active Yoga Running Pants Workout Spanx Tights Leggings. || Current Price: $13.50 (I paid $7.50) || Size Ordered: Medium
I love these! They fit great, I’ve worked out in them, ran in them, and washed them, and they’ve held up great. They were a steal for $7.50, but I would still buy them at $13.50
Loser: Backless T-Shirt Dress
Technical name: Eliacher Women’s Casual Sexy Backless Tshirt Dress 6589 || Current price: Unlisted (I paid $9.99) || Size ordered: Large
From the front, this one isn’t so bad, but it’s definitely not the flowy, hi-lo dress pictured on Amazon. The back, though…the back is bad. It’s black, so I couldn’t get an accurate picture, but there’s a knot in the back that causes the fabric right above your backside to stick a good two inches out, making you look something like this:
So, nope. Back to Amazon it went.
Winner(ish): T-Shirt dress
Technical name: Eliacher Women’s Casual Summer Chiffon Dress Blouses Long Top Shirts (what a ring to it, right?) || Current price: $9.99 (That’s what I paid) || Size ordered: XL
This is probably my favorite thing, but I say winner-ish because it isn’t at all like I thought it would be. First of all, it was supposed to have sheer pannels on the sleeves and shoulders…homegirl is sheer alllll the way through. Luckily I have a slip dress the same color scheme that works under it.
Losers too bad to picture:
This (seemingly) cute crop top. I had visions of wearing it with high-waisted skirts, but no. It was flimsy and slightly brown (??) and I was not even putting it on my body to take a picture.
Have you ordered anything worth mentioning off of Amazon lately?
