I have really enjoyed seeing a lot of bloggers wearing kimonos these past several months.  I have been wanting one and just wasn't sure what I was looking for.  For trendy items like these, I don't want to spend a lot of money on them because who knows if I will still love it 2 years from now.  For something I am on the fence about, my first stop is Forever 21.  Yes their quality is not the best but for fun pieces, why not?

So I ordered 2 kimonos: this one and a lace one.  When it arrived, the lace one was not white color that I thought I ordered but a taupe color.  To me, it looks like the lace had discolored and not in a good way.  It was a no brainer to return it.  I went during my lunch hour, the line at F21 was super long and when I finally got to the register, I was told I could not return it.  Why?....

Because it was an all sales final item.

What's my lesson learned?

Read what you are purchasing online extremely carefully (be it for size or color).

Check the shipping receipt before going to the store to return something and make sure it's not an all sales final item.

I am very bummed that I did such a careless purchase and hope I will still wear it and make the best of my discolored looking lace kimono.  Here's my attempt at wearing these 2 kimonos.
