I got a little overexcited and careless and landed myself a fake scarf! A Soiree de Gala in violet with the red border. It arrived today and when I saw the box I already knew that something was wrong and this feeling got confirmed when I saw the care tag! Otherwise I don't know if I would have noticed. Yes, the hems looked a little different but not disturbingly so. The stitching was very small - perhaps too small? I then checked the database and found more differences, most notably in some colours that were missing/being replaced in the design. I've started a PayPal dispute, so I should be OK and the amount wasn't freakishly high (glimmer of hope syndrome here ) but I don't want to own a fake. I don't know why this happened to me and why I was so careless. The seller was from Ireland so maybe I thought that all Irish people are nice and honest... which I still do, with the exception of this particular seller! It just brings home the point to ALWAYS ASK TO SEE A PIC OF THE CARETAG (if possible). It's not enough if the seller tells you what's written on it, ask to SEE a pic.
