Maxi dresses. I’ve often wanted to wear them and know if I could pull them off gracefully. The only thing that deterred me from doing so was the thought of where I would actually wear them. I do not attend many formal occasions anyway.

Last week as I browsed through Jabong , something that has become a habit now, I filtered my search specifically for maxi dresses just to see if my admiration for maxi dresses still existed. The next thing I knew, all the angles of this particular pink floral maxi by Athena were screened quickly and within no time it was in my cart, the credit card details seemed to appear automatically in my head and my fingers punched in the details like there was no tomorrow! It was even more exciting as they had a sale going on! We all love sales now, don’t we?

If you’ve seen my previous posts, you’d know I’m not that much into the color pink. I mean it’s a beautiful color and the diverse variations of the color look yum. I just had my reservations about the color going with my skin tone.This time I couldn’t resist the attempt to break these mind blocks and decided to try this bright fuchsia pink outfit. Even on wearing the dress, I still wasn’t convinced and asked the people around me for opinion. What finally persuaded me was when I saw the pics myself. I absolutely love the maxi dress and have no qualms about the color anymore. Though I still have to figure out where to wear it or maybe create an occasion to wear it 🙂

For a hassle free online shopping experience, I definitely recommend Jabong.com .This is my second review for #Jabong, the previous one is here .

Let me know if maxi dresses are your kind of thing or you’ve got some inhibitions about them.

Hope you all enjoyed reading this post. I know I was delighted posing for the pics and drafting my experience.

We are never ever getting back together

Standard

This Taylor Swift song is rightly meant from my friend to Ebay India.

Ebay dress

Somewhere around April this year, a friend of mine saw this pretty flowy-like dress on Ebay India. It was very similar to the one in the pic above and costed about Rs. 1299/- Being the online shopoholic that she is, it didn’t take too long to punch in her credit card details and tick the saved address for delivery. As I mentioned in my previous post, even though you know what’s packed in that courier packet, the excitement is always there. So obviously when her dress arrived,with that big smile on her face she opened it. And I’m not exaggerating when I say her face dropped. Yea, forget the smile, her face dropped!

The dress that was supposed to be flowy and attractive, looked like the tailor just grabbed some left over material and made whatever he could in 30 mins. It didn’t have any fit, the material condition looked shabby with extra thread dangling along the edges. The color differed from the picture on the website. In simple words, it was crap. Here, take a look.

Today with online shopping, returns and excahnge aren’t such a problem.Unfortunately it’s not so with Ebay India. The customer service representative asked her to courier the dress back, for which she would be refunded by Ebay India. After several calls back and forth, checking and re confirming, credit or cash discussions, my pal finally got a cheque. However, the cheque cannot be deposited as it has her ebay account name which is really a short name. They didn’t even bother asking on who’s name should the cheque be. Also, on letting them know about it, they refused to make any changes and said the matter is closed from their end. On asking for any higher authority’s contact details they gave some forever unreachable contact numbers. We’ve finally given up on Ebay India, but what’s worse is Ebay India has lost 2 of it’s customers. Such a shame.

The point of this post is:

1) To warn you against shopping from Ebay India
2) To save your time, money and energy.

If you wish to continue shopping from Ebay India, do so at your own risk.

Oh also, I’ve heard some of the most random and funniest lines while listening to my frustrated friend’s conversation with Ebay India representatives:
– Ebay gulps our cash like they’re really hungry
– I want to know the climax, not the trailer
– The cheque also hasn’t come to me yet! Doesn’t it have legs?

Yours Truly,
