I have a few basic tees from splendid, and the quality is good, much better than C&C. And basics are basics, they wont go out of style, and you will wear them alot, so I personally think they are worth it.
I LOVE Splendid basics. I'm one of those people who think good money should be spent on things you wear a lot, not on one really expensive dress you're going to wear only once in a lifetime. The thermals and henleys are GREAT!
Splendid has a great fit, has longer hems than other brands, and is much better quality than AmApp, C&C, and other similar labels.
I love splendid! One of my favorite brands! They are so flattering and super soft. I buy the basics as well as the dresses. I too, usually wait for them to go on sale or use a coupon code at revolve or wherever.
