First things first, I have something that needs to be addressed, even though it has absolutely nothing to do with Hawaii, or even this outfit. You might remember that I've worn a few pieces on this blog from the Asian retailer, Shein, and that I've written a few posts for them. However, I've received a couple of emails from readers lately telling me about their bad experiences when ordering from this company, and I've read many customer reviews detailing their poor service, with unresponsiveness and return issues being the bulk of the complaints.
I've also experienced firsthand the unprofessional way they communicate to bloggers through email. In their messages, they call you "dear" or "hun", which I don't find appropriate. I understand that some of their phrasing is due to a language barrier, but they also ask many bloggers to write posts on their behalf without compensation. Based on the reviews that I have read online, it would also appear that they give bloggers special treatment, which is definitely not fair to their paying customers.
I apologize for featuring Shein without doing proper research on the brand. Jean of Extra Petite has written here that she also does not associate with them for these reasons. In light of these issues, I have decided to stop working with Shein, in hopes that they can improve their customer service and PR department.
Ok, glad that's out of the way! On a lighter note, this is another outfit from Hawaii, and just writing this post made me miss Oahu's warm, sunny days. This Lilly Pulitzer skirt in Peel n' Eat is so bright and summery that I couldn't resist packing it. Peel n' Eat is one of my all-time favorite Lilly Pulitzer prints, and I was so happy to see that they brought it back last season.
Hope you all are having a lovely January so far!
