Floating on a Dream








Hi! Today I opted for an ethereal look for a relatively casual Sunday. This morning my mom and I headed out for Rugged Warehouse, Ross and Plato's Closet. I was hoping to find another pair of flatforms but in gray to buy for under $30. However, I had no luck. We made an impromptu trip to the Dollar Tree after looking at the shoes in Rugged Warehouse and I was able to purchase more flowers so that I have more than just 2 or 3 flower crowns. Our last stop was Plato's Closet. I brought in a big bag of my clothing that I wanted to get rid of and waited while they determined what to buy. Out of the 9 things that I brought, they accepted 7 for about $21. Although that doesn't seem like much, I was ecstatic! Usually they pay less than $1 per item but this time they paid about $3 per item. Do you ever have any luck, buying or selling, at Plato's Closet?

Today, I also wore my new Romwe skirt. I won an $80 Romwe voucher on Galore Beneath the Stars a while ago and I used part of that credit to buy this skirt. It is a lovely seafoam green, pleated skirt that is high in the front and low in the back. To be honest, I expected more from Romwe. With raving reviews from bloggers, I thought that the service would be a little better. On April 26, I placed an order for this skirt and a galaxy dress. I understand that Romwe is based in Asia but on my order, it said I would receive my order within 5-15 days. When did the skirt get here? Yesterday! As for the galaxy dress, I have not received it. I emailed a customer service rep at Romwe the other day and as it turns out, they haven't even shipped it yet! There is no reason why it shouldn't be here right now. I contacted the people at Romwe and they were very sweet about it and are going to refund me for the dress. However, I would be hesitant to buy from Romwe in the future.

  1. Sucks that you had a bad experience with Romwe. I ordered a blouse from them and it did take a while to get to me but I absolutely love it! I've ordered another blouse and a ring so hopefully I won't have any problems. Your skirt is beautiful though =]

  3. love the skirt- it's gorgeous! That's too bad about the service, hopefully you'll get your other item soon! The Plato's by my house is hit or miss. They're in love with Abercrombie & Hollister but not much else.
