I Don't Get Waves of Missing You Anymore.

Grey Circle Skirt: H&M.
White Heels, Earrings: Thrifted.

Oh, OASAP. You trickster, you. You're either the best of the best or the worst of the worst. In this case it's definitely the latter. I've received quite a few items from OASAP in the past few years and it's always a gamble quality wise. The green circle skirt I wore a few posts ago was amazing quality (better than this one I'm wearing from H&M) and only $13... but then I also got this top from them for $35 and it's a total bust. 

The first problem is it's one size fits all which makes for a wonky 'not all one size' fit. It's incredibly large in the upper half and then too tight on the bottom around my hips which makes it really uncomfortable. The fabric is sub-par, thin, polyester and I just thought the overall look of it would be much more flattering. I'm disappointed and wished I would have gotten three more of those circle skirts for the price of this one top I'll never probably wear again. So, if you're ever considering purchasing from OASAP be weary and read the reviews first-- it's definitely a gamble.

Sorry for such a negative post :( Booo! Hate writing things like this but I never want to be dishonest. On a better note, I have less then two weeks till I leave for Kent! Starting to get very excited. I am quite worried about packing though and what to bring. My room will be significantly smaller this year so I'm unsure of how much is too much. I think I might do a post or video showing the clothes I'm taking again though like I did last year--it's always fun to do!

With much love, Lauren.

Aw that sucks that the quality of the top isn't up to par. That's true that sometimes those sites are a gamble. I really loved that green skater skirt though.
Even though the quality of the top isn't great, it still looks really cute and unique. I like how this outfit turned out!

That's too bad that the top's fit is a bit off, it is a very pretty color though!

I used to work with Oasap but I don't do anymore because they had such a terrible policy and customer service and also because of the quality of their items! Just like you, I still own a few that were quite good but others were so disappointing (I had a bag from them that completely just ripped off, it was awful!)

I love your hair like this! The color of the top and the sleeves are so lovely, but that's really disappointing that it's not better quality. I'm really glad that you are so honest in reviews, and that you don't sacrifice your morals for the sake of free items, etc. You look like a princess though, so that's the good news! :)

Oooh yes please to the video I loved the one last year :) Shame about the top but I think it's great that you are so honest about it not being great quality.

Unknown said...

You know, at least you're honest. Too bad it doesn't fit right because I really think it's a beautiful blouse. especially the sleeves!

What a shame about the top! You were able to style it so nicely, though! The color is really pretty on you.
And I love your hair! So cute!

That is too bad about the blouse, because it really is very cute the way you've styled it!
