MDS COLLECTION

I didn't have the intention of doing any online shopping that day. Cause...Well... I have repent? HAHAHA.

 But for that day, it was a different story altogether. I received an email update from Groupon of the discounted MDS Collections voucher and thought I should buy it since it's quite cheap! $15 for a $40 Voucher. BUY! Hahaha. Very aunty material right?



First Purchase
I was quite lucky that day when I purchased this pleated skirt. It was on sale. On top of that there's a special promotion going on- An additional 10% discount to any sales item purchased. I think it ended on the 1st March or something. Can't really recall.

And when I meant by lucky is, the price you're looking at right now(see image below) wasn't the price I paid. It was lower! Ahuh. Lower! The skirt costs me $14.85(after additional 10% off). $14.85 only? BUY! It's even cheaper than whatever Bugis Street Sells! The last time I popped by Bugis, saw a similar skirt selling for $25. -..-


Next few days, I went to their site again and found out they have brought up their prices back. So my advice is, grab it if you think the price is cheap! They might just bring up their price back and you'll definitely regret it. Not to some of you maybe. But it is to the shopper-holics like meeee! I think Dildo is correct. I need help. LOLZ.

Second purchase 
Very disappointed when I received this. The skirt is all cute but just when I was happily about to try on the skirt, found some defects on the band area. There's like a 6cm tear. Quality is bad! Can you imagine if I purchase this at their normal price? I'll throw tantrums! Hahahaha.









Bad stitching! How do I even wear this when the tear is quite long. If it's just a small tear I can hand sew it. Definitely need an exchange for this! 


Third Purchase
My favorite piece! I am just so in love with this Kimono Cardi. Very light material and comfortable! There's a slight defect on this piece too. But it's not as bad as that lacy skirt. So I can somehow close one eye on it.

The small defect I was talking about.

Downside of this cardi? It gets crinkled easily. So ya la, wasted my effort  for ironing it when I knew I was was gonna be late for work. Mega -_-

My last purchase from MDS is a Nautical Necklace. Can't find the picture online anymore cause it's the last piece when I bought it.
Usual Price - $23. 
Discounted Price - $7.80


Honestly, I didn't really like the necklace though I kinda have a thing for nautical stuff. Cause at the price I'm paying for this, I could have gotten a prettier necklace from Forever 21! 

But it's okay! Overall, quite happy with my purchase although there are some defects on the clothes. Love the special promotion they offer. Not sure if it happens in their store too cause I purchased all these online. Better to purchase it online! Their shop so small and I hate to squeeze in when it's crowded.

Still waiting for their reply with regards to the defect item. How come must need 3 working days one? Other brands reply within a day or 2. Some even reply within hours! Efficient much? If only MDS is like those brands, very efficient. Sighzaaaa.

I have never bought from there. Their dresses aren't lined, the stitching is bad (very bad, asyou pointed out), fabrics extremely cheap, looked at one dress and it hada large hole in it. If I am going to spend 50, 60, 70+ dollars on a garment, theremust be some semblance of quality. They are abviously buying the worst clothing and marking it up alot.

Agreed! Aside from the bad quality garments, they have bad service too. lol.
You can read another post of mine here:

Emails were not replied, refund was not given, etc. Horrible. Many left negative feedbacks on their FB page. Not surprised though.
It's really sad. I think they could have done better. Not sure if the founder of MDS Collection knows how horrible their customer service is. Haha.
