The Tiny Heart: Shopping Fail

Shopping Fail



Fedora-Forever 21 (similar for $7.50), Dress-Forever 21, Bag-Target (similar), Sandals-Target

I love shopping Forever 21 online since they have such a larger inventory than what I can find in my local F21. And it is so easy to just click a few times and boom, new clothes. But I wound up only liking one pair of shorts I ordered out of the four things I purchased. The other items either didn't fit right or it were just totally different in person. Online shopping FAIL! So, I'll be going back to my Forever 21 store after all for the returns. Guess I should've just gone there in the first place. 

PS Last day to enter the infinity scarf giveaway!

  3. Cute post! I've never shopped online at Forever 21 - probably because there's a huge one a few minutes from my house - dangerous!

    Best,

  8. Boo! Online clothes shopping is really easy, but I find that when things arrive quite often they don't fit right or aren't exactly as pictured. I love the pop of pink with your purse in this outfit!

  9. I'm not sure I'd ever be able to order off the Forever21 site. There are just too many times where things don't fit me right there!

  11. Online shopping can be so hard! I've been doing more of it since I have been expecting and I bought a cute shirt from Old Navy thinking it would work for me now - it's wayyyy too big. But I'm saving it for later on.

    I adore this dress on you! And the pink purse is a great pop of color!

  13. I hate at Forever 21 how I can find something so easily, but then in the store no one even knows what I am talking about. It can be super frustrating.

  18. I can't online shop that much because nothing ever fits. I'm always the girl who needs to try things on! Annoying, but oh well!

  19. You look cute, love the pop of pink bag, i don't really shop online much, because things might appear different in person or might not fit, so i stick to going straight to the mall:)

  23. i love forever 21, mainly for the prices. but i've never bought anything online. when i go to the store, i will seriously try on 10-20 things and maybe like a few (if i'm having a good trip). the fits/quality are just so variable, so i figure i don't want to risk buying online. but of course that doesn't stop me from looking at the website haha.

  24. I know...I always fill up a shopping cart with things I like but I know I wont buy them because you really have to try them on. Even the shoes are inconsistent. So frustrating because I love everything on the site! At least you found something that worked!

  25. Thats such a bummer! I tend to have better luck with fit online becuase of the reviews, but its very hit or miss with them!

  26. Boo!!! I usually have such great luck with shopping online from there. Hopefully you can find something in the store! I am sure you will!

  27. I can't ever buy online, I never know what size to get or how something is cut. Bummer. At least you have an F21 close to you :)

  28. I learned my lesson ordering from F21 online. I always have to go to the store. Nothing ever fits how you think or looks the same online.

  29. Awh, Thanks for the fun Wedding Wishes. You are a June Bride tooooo! Cool to have that in common. Too bad about F21. My F21 store is 30 minutes away on the interstate and then the parking at that Mall is $9 per car no matter how long you park so we have / must park two blocks away where there are no meters to even get to the store. There is another one about another 30 minutes further way from that one and they have free parking. urgh. Online works but if you have the correct fit, huh?

  30. Love your bag! I do that too! I buy things online because I'm scared they won't have it in store and then almost nothing fits right and I have to return it. Bummer! Plus it's so overwhelming to shop in F21 stores sometimes, so I also like shopping from the comfort of my own home. :)

  33. I love your bright pink bag!! and that's definitely the worst part of online shopping.

  38. I don't blame you for wanting to shop online though-- visiting that store in person is SO overwhelming and I rarely end up making a purchase, mostly because the dressing room/check out lines are too long! I do like that dress though!

  39. I love your dress - it looks like it would be a great beach coverup :) I also have experienced many a shopping fail when ordering from F21 - their sizing is so inconsistent that I've learned my lesson and (almost) always go to the store now.

  40. Online shopping can be challenging. Just be glad it was not a $250.00 "office" chair which turns out is a "visitors" chair and not intended for long term sitting. It is a very uncomfortable chair. Now the company refuses to do anything about it. Stick to low cost clothes when doing online purchasing.

  41. Online shopping is so convenient but I hardly buy anything online because I'm afraid it won't fit! I usually only buy things online if I've already tried it on in store...which doesn't really make any sense but whatever! haha...

  43. Every time I buy something online and have to return it, I say "I'm done shopping online! Never again!" (because having to return stuff is so annoying!)
    but sure enough, I go buying stuff again... and returning, again.
