First impressions of LOTD

I have seen the Brand LOTD (Look of the day) on Instagram a lot lately and I thought I must give them a go. Their clothes are really reasonably priced and when I saw that everything was 60% off I grabbed the opportunity.

I have been struggling to find decent 'basics' recently. The types of tops you can throw on during the weekend and feel 'put together' even though you haven't really tried that hard.
So I saw the T-shirt above and I thought it would be perfect combined with denim shorts.

I managed to get three items for around £16 with delivery so I was very happy with myself.
I chose the Slogan tee with a rose and gold detail. A simple white bardot bodysuit, I am in love with bodysuits at the moment. So easy to style and they seem to keep wobbly bits in place nicely. I needed a white one to go with a couple of pairs of summer trousers.
I am also jumping on the lace bodysuit vibe, so I opted for a cream lace number with halter neck detail.

The delivery came quickly and packaged well. I was very pleased with quality of the T shirt for the price I paid. The medium is a little larger than expected but I am embracing that. I hate being squeezed into clothing! The bardot didn't disappoint either, comfortable and versatile.
Lastly the lace bodysuit is gorgeous, really good quality, I will need to wear something over or under it as I would be flashing to the world if I didn't. The reason I bought it was to wear under a plunge jumpsuit anyway so no problem there.

All in all a very happy customer!

Fabletics update

I am always honest about my opinions on my blog and I feel I need to share the continued story about my Fabletics purchase. As I want to be able to prevent what happened to me happening to others.

As I said in my previous post, I was pretty pleased with the quality of the leggings I had purchased.
Although what I had originally predicted the high waist band became less secure pretty quickly during my dance classes. Which was disappointing but what I was extremely frustrated about was that the following month I had £44 leave my account without my knowledge. Taking the complimentary offer of £24 for two garments automatically signs you up to a subscription that enables the company to take £44 a month to choose items for you. Then you can use the money to buy the items, you can skip a month.
Although as I didn't realise that I had signed up I missed the chance to do this. If you look on the website it is stated about the subscription but I felt it was very easy to over look.
I also found it a little deceiving that I did not receive a confirmation email of signing up to the subscription. I realised that on the order confirmation email in very small writing they had written about the details of the subscription. Again I found this a little sneaky!

When I automatically panicked as I am not sure about other people but I certainly can not justify £44 a month to have leggings picked out for me. I received a reply email to my complaint promptly giving me the unfortunate news that the money they had taken was not refundable. Although I could spend it on leggings I did not want or need. Extremely frustrating!

You can only cancel your subscription via phone call, so the next day I contacted them over the phone. I will say that the gentleman that dealt with my call was very friendly and understanding and he did as I asked very quickly. So that lessened the pain a little.

I have learn't my lesson and in reality I should of read the small print.
I suggest anyone that finds an online offer or advertisement whilst watching telly and it seems like a good deal. PLEASE read all the information first.

Has anything like this happened to you before?
If so how did you resolve it?

I apologise if this post seems a bit of a rant, I just wanted to share my experience.
