I recently purchased a pair of True Religion skinny jeans from Nordstrom. They looked awesome on me when I tried them on in the store and I had them alter the jeans since I'm so short. I finally got the jeans back on Tuesday, and as soon as I got home, I tried them on. They looked awful on me!! I wasn't sure what happened, especially since I was SO excited to get them. I kept thinking, "Oh no! I just wasted over $170 on jeans that I won't be wearing". I called them today, to see if maybe I could take them back despite having had them altered. I knew it was a longshot, but I thought that I would try it. The SA I spoke with was really friendly and understanding. She told me that she had to check with her manager...and the manager will allow for the return. I know that the situation was totally my fault, but I am SO glad that they were really nice about it. I think the new pair I get, I will take them home with me first to make sure that I really love them. I think it might be the mirrors alternating perception...but in any case, I've never done something like this before (returning altered items), so I'm glad that it turned out ok.
