First of all, I have to thank you for your support and sweet comments on my last post about the Ebay Dress of Disappointment. I'm happy to report that the story has a happy ending! Huzzah! :D
The seller responded to my e-mail, fortunately she was super cool about everything. She offered me a full refund and a shipping label to return the dress. Quite frankly, I wanted to keep the dress since I felt a lot of the problems were somewhat fixable so I counter offered to keep the dress in return for a partial refund. She agreed, I got part of my money back, bada bing bada boom (I'm saying that a lot lately...) and we're good. :)
I spent the morning washing and pressing the dress (it had that lovely Vintage Musk smell to it big time) and then mended the holes along the seams. (Go me!)
And here's what the fuss was all about:
As you can see, the measurements listed were off as well. I'm a little bit of a Chesty LaRue but no way the chest measurements were as big as what the listing said they were. No worries, I'm currently exercising and all that healthy what not so it should fit a little better soon. :)
The dress screams, "Ethel Mertz Lives!" I think. Lucy may be the icon but it's Ethel's wardrobe that I look for (and can halfway afford most of the time). lol Fun!
Thanks again for your advice and virtual shoulders to cry on, I so appreciate it!
Happy Friday everyone! Any fun vintage plans this weekend?
