Default Ordering clothes online - FB adds

When you are on FB, do you see adds for purchasing clothes online? I do order clothes online, so I am probably targed for these adds.

I see some absolutely gorgeous items, but I know they are cheaply made (ask me how I know). I'm just wondering where I can get such beautiful clothes of good quality.

Any ideas for me?

Have you tried Zulily? I have bought some nice things through them and they've actually arrived fairly quickly. I ordered some t shirts last year through a FB ad, and they took at least six months to arrive. When they arrived, not one of them fit me although I ordered an XL. Even my tiny sister (size XS) didn't fit in them! Learned my lesson!

I do order clothing online, but never from the pop-up ads. I only purchase from shops/stores that I know such as J.Jill, Land's End, and LL Bean and Christopher and Banks. I always, always shop the bargains but I can depend on the quality and delivery is generally less than a week. Never tried Zulilly. I am hoping to do some "in-store" shopping this summer as we begin to crawl forward toward normalcy.

(I was gifted a clothing item for Christmas from Vermont County Store and it was/is excellent quality.)

I would never buy something from an unknown company on a FB ad. Tons of scammers out there, FB does not care.

There is a way to check out how long a website has been around, Google "Domain Age Tool." Some of these companies are brand new and are just there to take your money.

Now if it is a company you have heard of, make sure it is the real thing and buy with confidence.

Never buy anything from pop up ads on FB. They make fake websites and use fake address and usually no phone number. You may never get your items. I have ordered from Zuilily, some of the clothes are ok, some of the not so much. They don't actually stock all their items so there is a long wait for some things. Also, not everything is refundable if you don't like it. So real everything carefully.

I get those ads constantly. I never order from them. DH orders Hawaiian shirts with few successful orders. They are often too small or smaller than indicated. Made overseas for smaller people

I have ordered clothing online, but only after going to the specific store online. JCPenney, Catherines, K&G etc. I have extensive ad blockers, so I rarely ever see pop-up ads, but I would never order based off an ad. I'm just too leery and un-trusting of the unknown!

I order for Woman Within frequently it came up as a pop up one day and I was interested. I only ordered a single item the first time and since then have spent several hundreds of dollars there. they cater to larger sized women.

I never order anything using the FB link. I go to the store website.

Not being able to try on clothes during these crazy times is as bad as it gets for me. I have donated a lot of new clothes because they were too big. They were the size I normally wear. No way would I buy any more clothes until I can try them on.
