Shopping on RoseGal.com

Hi everyone!

Have you ever paid attention to the ads on Facebook? I kept seeing ads for RoseGal.com, a discount clothing store, so one day I finally decided to check it out.

There were lots of pieces I liked, but I was always hesitant to purchase anything. I think the low prices made me hesitant… I mean, would the clothes be “cheap”? They have free shipping worldwide so I figured I could order a couple of pieces to try it out, so that’s what I did!

I ordered two items on September 15th. On Sept 16th I got a notice that one item was shipped, and on the 27th the second item was shipped. The first item never arrived (at least not yet)… and the second item took maybe three weeks to arrive.

I was planning on doing this post with both items, but since one item never arrived we’ll take a look at the one that did arrive: the Vintage Printed Long Sleeve Irregular Cardigan For Women in a size medium. This one is priced at $22.47 USD and I paid $14.18 for it.

Let’s take a look…

The sleeves are made of sateen (or something like it) and the body is knitted and quite see-through.

So… where do I start…? Did I get the petite version or something?!? The item I received definitely does not fit like the one the model is wearing… unless she’s wearing an extra large (which would have been nice to know, and false advertisement).

When my husband saw the sweater he did not like it at all, and when I showed him the pictures online he said “that’s not even what you got!” so he agrees that the pictures are deceiving – and he agrees that the sweater looks good online.

I think this shirt will go straight to the donation bin, *sigh*. 🙁

I wish my other item would have arrived too – FYI it was the Women’s Heart Pattern T-Shirt Long Sleeve Crew Neck Tops. If it ever arrives I’ll do another post to let you know how it fits.

Will I shop on RoseGal again? I did make a wishlist on the site so if one of the items comes down to maybe $5-$7 I might give it another try – just to see.

Have you had bad experiences ordering online?

  • The pattern is cute, but I think it’s missing the key differentiation, which is the cute draping! Sounds like a pretty disappointing experience 🙁

  • Haha “Did I get the petite version or something?” I think it still looks cute on you but it’s definitely much shorter!

  • Oh no!!! I hate how stuff like that comes from online shops and is totally deceiving. I’ve gotten a few things (I shop from ebay sellers in china) and sometimes am disappointed too 🙁

    • This one was totally deceiving! I checked the reviews on the item first and everyone seemed to say that it fits true to size so I wonder… are they real reviews??? I added mine and last time I checked it had not been approved yet (I submitted one of my pictures and gave it 2 stars).

  • I have had this happen so many times where I think it will look great according to the online photos but am crazy disappointed when it arrives. Is the model a really short person??? It looks completely different haha

    • If you compare with what I received it really looks like she’s wearing an extra large, right??? So different, and so disappointing. I usually only buy from reputable stores (Old Navy, Dynamite) where I KNOW what I get is what is shown, and 95% of the time it fits me too – the other 5% is just cause the style doesn’t fit my body type.

  • The shirt you got is a total different style, so disappointing.
