Don't cross paths with me unless you want bad luck. O_o Haha. Ahhh, yeah. You guys know my style changes with the direction of the wind. I felt like I had been doing a lot of granny chic, vintage, rustic, colorful stuff and I guess it was time for a change. Honestly, I think I enjoy the dark, monochromatic looks the most. If I had to choose just one style to stick with for the rest of my days, this would be it.
The darkness feels good. Not gunna lie. Nevertheless, I try to mix it up and not always give in to the dark side. Hehe. That being said, I'll probably do some more edgy and masculine outfits, next week. Anyway, check out that bare midriff, ya'll! What?! O_O I never, ever, ever show my bare stomach.
Well, correction. I used to show it off probably more than was necessary when I was younger. Hehe. Once I hit my mid-20's, I figured it was time to give that sh*t a rest. However, lately, I've been kind of jonesing for a crop top. I have a lot of high waisted garments, now, and a crop top would go so nicely with them. Yes, I know that I'm probably in the age bracket where a crop top might be considered a faux pas. This doesn't bother me, though. I think I still have a pretty nice figure, so why not show it off a bit?
There are a ton of items on their website, so it's not conducive to browsing. You really need to have a good idea of what you're looking for and then do a narrowed search. I knew that I wanted to look at the crop tops that they had available and I also wanted a unique blouse and maybe a new pair of sunglasses. So, I just stuck to those areas. As it turns out, I was able to find something that I liked in all three categories. My cart totaled $13.37, which is extremely low for the items I picked out. Shipping was another $6.00 and it was calculated on the basis of weight. So, keep that in mind if you're purchasing cotton jeans, jackets, coats, bags, etc. The shipping time was 1 week with China Post (Regular).
Given the amount of items on the website, I was expecting my stuff to be hit or miss in terms of quality. That being said, I have to say that I'm very pleased with the quality of the crop top and sunglasses. The measurements on the website were fairly accurate for the crop top. I wanted something that would give me a good deal of coverage (i.e. I didn't want the hem to be right under my boobs heh). Also, I didn't want the top to be so tight that it puckered or created a gap. I wanted the material to stay fairly close to my body. As you can see, it's exactly what I had hoped for. It's slightly see-through, so I wore a black bra underneath. The sunglasses are great quality, too. They look exactly like the product photo.
I can't say much about returns and exchanges, since I haven't had to send anything back (and I'm aware that this area is usually the most problematic for customers in general). However, based on the experience that I've had, I think I would do business with CNDirect in the future, but I would keep the amount of my purchases as low as possible; pick items that I'm fairly confident in (in terms of quality and fit); always use PayPal; and pretty much count on keeping things that don't work out, due to return shipping costs (as I'm not sure whether CNDirect offers pre-paid shipping labels for returns).
As always, if you have any questions about my experience working with a sponsor or concerns about quality/fit of items that I've received, just leave me a comment or message me through my contact page. =) Also, I hope that you liked this dark, bohemian ensemble and that you weren't too put off by my belly button. Haha. I promise, this will not be a regular occurrence. ;) Have a great weekend!
