If you haven't realized from the title what I'll be talking about, here's a hint: Bugs loves 'em. A week ago, I ordered a pair of carrot trousers from ASOS, and after a merciless wrestle on my impatience, I have them!
The thing I noticed about online shopping is that the purchasing process is as swift as a click of a mouse. However, online shopping tests people in one skill: delayed gratification. Unlike real-life shopping, online shopping requires people to wait for their orders to arrive to the point of madness. Needless to say, I am very poor in this area, eventually developing a knack for tracking my order every hour or so--despite ASOS' reminder that their standard delivery ships around 7 business days.
I was saturated with glee only a giddy schoolgirl can express.
Ultimately, once the mailman dropped my package, I was saturated with glee only a giddy schoolgirl can express. (OK, I didn't look like that but in my head I felt like that.) I grabbed the scissors and tore up the packaging and beheld in my hands my new pair of pants!
But something wasn't quite right. I felt the fabric and thought it soft. When I checked the "ingredients" tag, I was aghast to see it wasn't 100% cotton as advertised. In fact, it wasn't even made from cotton! Darn ASOS screwed me over. But the good thing is it's not going to be as wrinkly as cotton tends to be that way after several washes.
Other than that, it looks like a good buy! Usually, when I get things on sale, the item's either funky-looking or some of the buttons are missing. But now that I received these trousers, I feel that I got what I wanted.
