Review: Romwe.com

I don't especially like this store. I think they have a lot of replicas and I'm skeptical of products from China in general. A lot of people on Lookbook buy products here so I thought I might as well give it a try since when you sign up for their email list you get some coupon codes. And the products aren't very expensive.

In general, there are too many products so browsing through them all bores me. I'm interested in galaxy prints and spikes right now. So I only look at those items usually.

I ordered the
Mysterious Universe Asymmetric Skirt
Multi Point Spike Headband
 
(subtotal) $50.25 - (discount code) $10.05 = $40.20 (total)

  • Ordered (August 28)
  • Order confirmation (August 28)
  • Email item shipped with tracking number (August 31st)
  • Item arrived (September 7th)
But....
I got the WRONG item. I got the Mysterious Universe Tulip Skirt instead. I emailed the customer service and they told me that they would give me a 70% refund. I guess this is better than shipping an item to China because the cost of shipping and the time it would take.
 
Still, makes me kind of regret buying from this site from the first place. Online shopping sites depend on efficient quality control and mistakes like this are how a site fails, no matter how cheap and well made their products are.
