This tale begins with a dress:
About a year ago I came across the most adorable LBD on Nasty Gal. I had to have it. But there was one problem…it was sold out! Terrible, I know.
I contacted customer support to ask if they would restock the dress and found out that they sometimes bring back popular items, but I would need to continue checking back. I did continue to check back pretty religiously for the first couple months, and then about 1 to 2 times a month afterward. No luck. 🙁
Now comes my downfall. I found an image of my ever coveted dress online, but the head of the model was cut off in the photo. Curious, I went to the website to see what it was about. The site was called YOYOMELODY. I knew it was too good to be true and that it was risky, but the price was so inexpensive that I decided just to order it.
The dress I’m wearing below is what I received. Luckily I don’t hate it, but I also don’t love it. And you’ll never guess what! Days after I got this dress in the mail, I discovered that Nasty Gal had brought the dress I wanted back, but it sold out again!! Why me?!
Here is the image of what the actual dress looks like from Nasty Gal.
I currently have myself on a wait-list for this LBD and my fingers are crossed that I can have it soon!
Have you ever fallen for a bad knock-off, or any knock-off for that matter? I’d love to hear your story in the comments below!
