I dont know if its just me but lately Im seeing a trend in poor damage and quality control for sale items I buy online. Shopbop sent me a pair of used and jacked up shoes (although they MORE than made up for it so no real complaint there). A small boutique sent me a pair of dusty sun faded pants that must have been folded up in a sunny window for a year! Nordies has sent me a worn and returned dress with lots of wrinkles, a bonus hair and a nice snag to top it off. Jcrew has sent an entire order in a soaking wet stapled closed paper bag. One item was damp but nothing permanently damaged and Im sure it didnt leave Jcrew in that condition but come on!! You mailed 5 items to me in a paper bag did you really think it was going to arrive unscathed?? There are more .many, many more! But my vote for item that arrived in less than pristine condition goes to .. my very lovely new (and first) AC City tote which arrived complete with a bird poop! Okay so it's all nice and hidden on the inside of the bag which also means there is no way in hell it could be an actual bird poop but whatever that crusty bit of cling-on is inside my shiny new bag it is GROSS and Im getting a little fed up with businesses not inspecting their stuff before they ship! Am I overreacting here? At this point I havent even complained to the company because what are they gonna say?? whoops sorry about that, you can return it if your not happy(no way!) or better yet they could make me really mad and say something like sorry final sale . I mean, Im sure the poo stuff would just scrap out and clean up pretty easy but come on! Sale or no I still paid good money and isnt the whole idea behind a sale to attract customers? So are they not interested in attracting customers that will actually come back? So Im going to ***** and moan here because maybe some businesses that surf these boards will listen and start checking their shipments better! Thats all... rant over! On a lighter note here are some pictures of my lovely new bag! It is metallic mustard which I havent seen posted anywhere else. It is not mustard at all but a very neutral bronze/antiqued brass look. These pics didn't come out so great and I will try to get more later. I love the color and the size is perfect! I cant believe some people think the city it too big! I thought I wanted the mini but Im so glad I went with this one!
