I'd been waiting for an opportunity to wear this Poppy England dress for a while. After first spotting it and adding it to a wishlist post a little while back, I thought I'd totally lucked out when I managed to pick it up in a sample sale a few days later for half price. I subsequently bought the other dress on my wishlist, directly from the website, because it made it's way into the sale as well - it arrived before the sample sale order did.
Sarah and I ordered one each of the sweetshop print dress and when they eventually arrived, hers had to be sent back due to a broken zip. I wish I'd checked mine at the same time, as the zip on this one is faulty too but I feel as though it's too late to try and do anything about it (hence layering it up with a jumper until I get chance to replace it).
It was bad enough having to wait almost three weeks from the date they'd received the first faulty one back for a refund, but anytime I asked about it via twitter etc, I was just told to give them more time as they were really busy, which was hardly encouraging. Needless to say, given the price of the dresses, I don't think I'll be ordering any more from them, which is a real shame because I was so excited by the designs when I first saw the site.
Have you ever been put off a brand due to their approach to customer service?
