Pseudo Review of City Chic

City Chic has an awesome sale going on right now (till 3/21): 60% off everything + Free Shipping and Free Returns for US customers. These kinds of details are the ONLY reason I ever shop online, otherwise I'm not spending a dime. I purchased their High Waist Jeans in a size 16 and their High Waist Shorts in a size 18, both of which are sadly ill-fitting:

...can't...quite...breathe... Check out that baggy crotch!

Ideally, I'd send them back in exchange for the right sizes but they're completely sold out of the jeans ;\ I've reordered the shorts in a size 16 so if they end up not fitting again I'll just return them, again— this is why I neverrr everrr shop online, EVER. The quality of the denim is pretty great, there's a nice amount of stretch and they're not too thin. I have a rather tube shaped body and they're clearly designed for pear shapes; if they were just sized a bit differently they would be perfect. The delivery time was another big shocker: I placed my order Wednesday night and I received my package Friday!

Edit: I've sold the jeans and received my new order with the smaller sized shorts. They're still ill-fitting though, so I'll be returning them... I suppose this means I'm just not meant to shop online ;\

  1. That's too bad. J. from fatshionable.com did say you should size up.
    Pity because they sold out in my size (the pants) almost immediately. And the shorts as well.

    You look good, though. :D I can't wait for my order to come in! When did yours come in?

  2. Yeah, I know!! I wanted an 18 but they were sold out so I figured I'd try to squeeze into the 16... TOTAL BUMMER.

    I got my order on Friday after ordering on Wednesday, I just wish it all fit ;( Hopefully you'll have better luck with your items!

  4. Oh, I hope your dress fits you too! Maybe it's just their denim that has sizing issues? This was my first time ordering from them, or anyone for that matter, so I'm not sure if it's a typical issue. Good luck :)

  5. dang--i ordered their 14 at first, because the size guide said the city chic 14 was like a torrid 16, which totally fits. the city chic 14, though, CHOKES ME. so i popped online and miraculously they had a size 16 available! so i bought those...but now i wonder if i shouldn't have originally gotten the 18, because your body sure looks like mine :( bleh! well, umm, if the 16s wind up working out for me and i'm dying for another pair, would you be up for selling me your 16s?

  11. i have the same luck shopping online... i rarely do it despite constantly browsing and yearning. sizing is always so inconsistent.

  12. I fill my carts up and spend imaginary money all the time online lol! I just can't go through with any of it though, unless it's a free shipping/free return deal like this was (and how rare is that!).

  13. I don't know what I would do WITHOUT online shopping. I'd never shopped citychic prior to the sale & I was so mad I didn't get more stuff. I am totally guilty of internet window shopping though. So fun!

  14. My online shopping consists of me buying too many shoes, clutches, and jewelry. I'm a hard size to fit and figure I should stick to things I know I'm dead on with!

  15. It's such a hit or miss process. I don't really shop at all, to be honest. I'm the cheapest of the cheap, still have and wear clothes from college all the time!
