This Just In: Romwe
In my previous post a Romwe package popped up which contained two dresses and a bucket of bullshit.
Let’s start with the fact that the clothing flew in directly from a warehouse in China, it didn’t even touch USA ground. For a former “vintage specialty shop” that seems like giant mass production. But then the tracking is 100% Chinese as well. There’s a translator but that thing is way too slow, and Google translate gives you a very.. broad translation as usual.
Apparently that means it’s not in Belgium yet. Every single update translates into this lovely Myst-worthy cryptic language.
The dresses did arrive perfectly though, sealed in plastic so thick i’m wondering whether it even belongs in the regular trash.
Dress number one is the Cat Face Black Dress, which was €37.20.
The fabric is okay, synthetic but decent looking until you see it close up. The only thing is that it wrinkles INSTANTLY.
It goes: “You want to lean against something? Suuure – go ahead.. HAHA I made a wrinkle.” evil sob.
Then the seams are really poorly stitched and i’m afraid i’ll rip the fabric when I put it on – since there’s no zipper..
The bow is pretty cute though, and it’s attached by pin so comes off as well. Which is perfect.
Secondly, my favorite! The Cut-out Wings Embellished Blue Dress, which was €32.24.
The cut-out is nice, no scruffiness to be seen there!
This material is tons better too, it’s synthetic but the heavy kind. It weighs down really nicely as you slip it on! I love that!
The wings are nice ‘n’ plump!
And even the seams are lovely.
So all in all the quality is a hit or miss, you can’t see any detail on the product shots either so it’s a Google and guess situation!
And considering the order took a whole month to arrive when it was supposed to take 5-15 business days it’s sort of a double dissapointment in a way.
A friend of mine placed an order at about the same time and hers arrived way too late as well, she describes her dress as decent quality if you don’t get up too close.
If you plan on ordering you might want to: check Google for pictures of actual people wearing your goodies first, don’t expect your package to arrive in time, and check online for coupons because they have tons rolling 24/7! I Googled “Romwe coupon” and found one for 20% off instantly.
I’ll be twirling around in both of these within the week, might take some pictures if you want to see them on!
Have a great weekend and may your Sunday rolls be especially yummy!!
