Tell me who don’t feel nervous when it comes to their first time? I do. So kancheong and excited, I can feel the butterflies in my stomach the moment I clicked the “order” button.
I’m talking about my very first experience in purchasing clothes online. Yes, I just broke my very own barrier. I used to avoid online shopping especially apparels cause I cannot touch the material and try it on to see if it suits me or not. Unless the thing is fix one (doesn’t have particular size) such as acne face wash or the waterproof camera case that I bought from Lowyat forum last year.
It is the expensive-and-ridiculous-price from boutiques in Sibu that drives me to purchase clothes online. Seriously, some dresses are sold at twice or even triple from the price online (including shipping fee). I’m not gonna let those boutiques ripped me off lo.
So I spent my night time researching for Malaysia online store. I found a few via Facebook ads too. The first stuff that I ordered is this yellow skirt, that can be a dress too, from Cocobobo.
I purchased and made the payment online during night time 11pm (Wednesday) like that. I was expecting 5 to 7 days as what Cocobobo’s website stated cause I thought they must be using Pos Laju or Pos Express service. But, Skynet the delivery service called me to get the goods from their office on Friday noon. Whoaa, so fast!
The skirt was delivered in a very good condition. The yellow gradient doesn’t differ much from the model picture. The material doesn’t disappoint me too. Bottom line, I’m a satisfied customer. Only one thing if I am allowed to suggest to the merchant: I will be more than happy if the goods is wrapped with a nice/beautiful paper gift or something nice but doesn’t cost much instead of plastic only. Presentation does matter.
Anyway, I had a memorable first time. The feeling of purchasing apparels online is not less exciting than purchasing it from the boutiques in mall. I’m so ready for the second time.
