Gail Carriger give as Customer Warning: Wiltshire Wigs, Gail Looks Like a Bichon Frise & Other Issues


In the spirit of do what I say not what I do I'm going to do a little post about a bad online shopping experience I had recently.

It was bad, Fashionable Reader.

I had a costume event coming up an I wanted a nice higher quality wig to wear to it, with the thought that I might get additional use out of such a thing. (Steampunk events and other historical reenactment stuff.) My general avenue failing (ah hem, Amazon) I tried this company Wiltshire Wigs.

Boy was that a bad plan. 


I ordered what I thought was a cute little 1930s style number, and it came but in the wrong color and didn't look anything like the photo.

That's all well and good because wigs are pretty subjective, and you never know exactly what it will look like once you put it on.

(In this case I looked like some weird wet mop crossed with a bichon frise.)

Turns out their return policy is draconian: 15% restock and additional shipping costs. 14 day return policy on an invoice they never enclosed. They were totally non-responsive over email.

Sad really, because I love me a nice wig and now they've lost me totally as a customer. I'm super good and loyal to indie vendors if they treat customers decently.

Anyway, I can only recommend that you avoid them.

Yours,
Miss G

Gail Carriger Things I'm Picking Up for Prime Day


So I keep a long list of items that interest me, Fashionable Reader, but that I'm not sure if they are worth it or not. Prime day, for me, is an excuse to try out some stuff at a lower price point.

So here is what I am picking up...


Gail Carriger Things I'm Picking Up for Prime Day

Angerella Vintage Retro Pin Up Halter One Piece Swimsuit Monokinis for $9.99 comes in four different patterns, sizes are kind of restricted. I'm trying the L & XL (6 & 8) respectively. (I know, right?)

Pretty Polly Womens Nylon Backseam Tights for $14. Like all other denizens of the nude with black back seam (who can't wear Leg Avenue), I used to buy American Apparel. They discontinued their version years ago. I've been hunting for a replacement since. We shall see how these fit.



Things on sale that I have, love, and recommend...

Life's perfect silk head scarf for $13 There is something about this scarf, the colors just seem to always go with everything in my wardrobe and its thick enough to be full cover, but still light-weight, and it's the right size to tie in pretty ways without too much excess.
