Still Time to Sparkle

You know when you come across some thumb stopping content on Pinterest, fall in love with a piece, close your eyes and make a wish that clicking on it will actually bring you somewhere instead of a broken pin link? Imagine my happiness when I found a beautiful rose gold off the shoulder sequin top several weeks before NYE with a working link direct to the product on RoseWe's site. Enter sadness that the rose gold was of course sold out, so I settled for the silver instead which was still pretty and had NYE written all over it.

Top | Jeans | Heels | Clutch | Sunnies | Lipgloss 


I placed my order on December 10th - that's 3 weeks before NYE which should be more than enough time for processing and shipping considering the item was in stock. It didn't ship until December 26th. What were they doing? Hand-sewing each individual sequin onto the top? I tried not to worry, and felt that it had enough time to arrive in 5 days or less. *Spoiled by Amazon Prime*. New Year's Eve came and went, and I ended up rocking sparkle with my favorite sequin leggings instead (recap here). Fast forward 2 and 1/2 weeks later, and the item finally arrived. 3 and 1/2 weeks for shipping?! After 2 and 1/2 weeks for processing?! Unacceptable. Moral of the story - stop ordering from overseas and shop local. Also, it's always time to sparkle even after the holidays are over.

  1. This sequin top is gorgeous! But I'm sorry it took so long to get here. That is so frustrating! You are right, you never know how long a package will take when it's coming from overseas. Buying local is always a good idea!

  2. Definitely a bummer that it took so long to arrive but at least you can rock it next NYE!! I love the slouchiness of the top - makes it a bit more casual even with the sparkle! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  8. Pinterest can be so disappointing when you see something you love and can't find it, or it's already sold out. Such a bummer about the ridiculous shipping time, but glad it finally arrived! Sparkles any time of the year make things that much more fun- especially during winter when it's dark and cold.

  9. Whaaaat? We are spoiled with shipping with prime and shop runner, but that’s just ridiculous. Glad you still got your top - it’s so cute, and you always rock sparkles no matter the occasion!

  14. Oh man, that shipping is ridiculous! It is 2018, let's get with the program, we dont like to wait for items! Though I will say it was worth the wait, because that top looks fabulous on you! There is never a bad time for sequins or glitter.

  17. Stinks about that shipping!! :-( I have had similar stuff like that happen when I ship things to my sister because she lives in Singapore. On a more positive note, that top is amazing! You could wear it next holiday season or just a fun night out. :-)

  20. UGH- that is SO frustrating! As much as I think the China-direct sites are great pricing, I'm way to impatient to wait for that type of shipping speed! Good news is: your top is adorable and yes to sparkles all the time!

  21. Ugh so sorry you did not get to rock this cute top on NYE! I will definitely stay away from that site! This would be so fun for a Birthday celebration though!

  22. I'm basically obsessed with this. I kind of want it to my daily uniform, if I'm being totally honest. Completely impractical but totally fun.

  26. Well the shirt is really fun, but I agree waiting that long is ridiculous (although I did laugh at the "what were they doing? Sewing each sequin on?" hahah)

    ReplyDelete
  27. That absolutely ridiculous! I'd be so pissed. At least the shirt first and looks super adorable on you. Now you're all set for NYE this year lol :)

  28. The rose gold top would have been gorgeous! You know I'm a sucker for sparkles so I love the outfit. Honestly the silver top is probably more practical and match more shoes and accessories in my wardrobe... but I would be tempted to buy the rose gold if it wasn't sold out.

  36. Darn Pinterest and it's broken links! That's the one thing that drives me crazy about Pinterest.... The silver is a great alternative and you look beautiful in it though, so it worked out.....

    Have a wonderful day!

  38. Love that sparkle girl!! I ordered something from overseas one time and it took a month to get me to and was so cheap it was just laughable! Since then I've pretty much been traumatized. Luckily your top looks like a good one even if it took a little while to get to you!
