The Sweater Coat
My collection of coats is very small, since LA weather is hardly ever right for a coat. The coat-like sweater, on the other hand, is something I can fully embrace. I've been on the hunt for a longer, thicker sweater such as this and finally found it at Zaful. Pleasantly surprised by the thickness and non-itchy factor, considering the price tag of $23. Yup, you heard right. $23!
Now I know it can be a little scary ordering from some of those China-based fashion stores (Romwe, Shein, Choies, ChicNova, etc). If prices seem too good to be true, often times, they are. I mostly get stuff from those shops for free since they are always looking for bloggers to promote their stuff. But, after some negative experiences, I mostly avoid those shops if I can help it.
However, I spent some time browsing Zaful's site and they seem a bit more legit than the rest, as I didn't really notice any of the usual red flags. Furthermore, they have a whole Instagram Feed of girls looking good in their clothing, and the Satisfaction Guarantee helped to put my mind at ease (all dissatisfied customers will be offered unconditional resend or refund for orders under $50). I ordered another top as well, and overall, I was pleasantly surprised with the ease of the transaction and the items I received.
