Have you ever bought something online from an ad you saw on Facebook? I did, a few times, and today I’ll share with you my experience from buying something from Belle Lily (BelleLily.com) after seeing an ad on Facebook for Halloween dresses.
The dress I bought is not the one I saw on the ad, but it brought me to the site and got me browsing. I then stumbled upon the Halloween Pumpkin Elf Printed Mini Dress which I thought would be fun to wear to work. It’s not a Halloween costume per se, but definitely in the theme. It was on sale for $18.04 CAD at the time and they have free shipping worldwide so I figured I’d give them a try. Worse case, I lose $18 on a piece of trash, best case, I get a very cute dress!
I placed my order mid September and it took exactly four weeks for the dress to arrive, which was perfect since I wanted it for Halloween. And you know what? I LOVE IT! For Halloween I styled it with black leggings and black boots. I found it ended up looking a bit witch-like too, even better!
Leggings: George (Walmart) | Boots: K Studio
I received A LOT of compliments for my dress! Every time I went to the washroom I got a compliment. Side note: I work in IT with only guys, so I usually see other ladies when going to the washroom, lol! Every time someone new was in the washroom they always complimented me on my dress.
The quality is good for the price I paid, I really can’t complain. In fact, I loved it so much that I ordered one for Christmas too! I got the Christmas Santa Claus Printed Long Sleeve Dress which is basically the same dress with a different pattern. This one was on sale for $13.26 CAD at the time. They also have lots of other cute Christmas patterns, but I figured my daughter would love the Santas on this one, and it’s cute. 🙂
For this one I added the tracking which was an extra $5.47 so that brought my total to $18.73, which is still awesome. This one also arrived faster too because of the tracking option… if I remember correctly I think it was two weeks.
This dress will be used for all upcoming Christmas parties – you’ve been warned my friends! 😉
A thing I have to mention about my second order is that the bag it came in said Fairy Season. I don’t remember if my first order was the same; I didn’t notice.
I looked up FairySeason.com and sure enough, it’s all the same items with same prices – usually. Right now Fairy Season has some Black Friday deals that Belle Lily doesn’t. But otherwise the prices are the same (from the checks I’ve done in the past). It looks like both sites are different fronts for the same backend store/warehouse. Even the sites looks the same, check it out (click on the image if you want to see it bigger).
You can compare both sites to see if one has a better sale than the other. 😉
For the sizing, I took a clothing measuring tape and measured myself. I ordered the size according to my measurements and both dresses fit perfectly!
I think you can already guess that I liked my first purchase since I went and bought a second dress. These are really cute and are perfect to add some fun to your holiday outfit. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for other holidays to see what they have, and I’ll eventually try other pieces of clothing from them too.
Have you shopped on Belle Lily before?
