I am distraught, bereft, disappointed and many other extreme emotions.
My much anticipated and deeply discounted Herve Leger dress has arrived, but is faulty!!!
I was so excited when it arrived! I opened the box and held it up against myself. It looked small (I ordered xxs as the site recommended for my measurements), but perfect in terms of cut and colour. It's a beautiful deep navy blue, with a double zip down the back and a demure boat neck.
However, my anticipation and excitement were short-lived. J assisted me into the dress, but once he had got the zip down, he realised that it wouldn't go back up.
The zip was faulty!
The end of the zip was crooked and didn't match up properly. You can see in the pic below the difference in the hem:
I'm not brave enough to attempt to fix this, so with great regret, the dress is going back today to see if it can be fixed or not.
It has sold out on NAP, so unless someone else returns one in my size or the NAP folks can magic the zip back to normal, I think this dress is just not meant to be :-(
There are no pics of me wearing it as I never did get to do up the zip - I think it would have fitted and looked good..... On the positive side, it means that I can return to my previous smug state of not having shopped since late October.
Have you experienced a clothing malfunction?
Any experience with broken zips?
Should I have attempted to mend it or did I do the right thing returning it?
