Why You Shouldn't Shop At Fashion Nova

Everyone always spoke so highly about the online clothing store, Fashion Nova. Fashion Nova went viral by having some of the most popular public figures promoting their clothes on social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook. Little did I know that when I ordered from Fashion Nova, I'd end up being scammed.

When you go on their website, their clothes look trendy, and their prices seem affordable, which you would think is great until you actually order something from them.

I placed an order back in May of 2017 for a two-piece outfit that looked adorable online but was nothing like I expected in person. When I opened it, not only was it see through but it also had a hole on the top piece.

I tried getting in contact with them for about two and a half weeks, and they would not respond no matter how hard I tried. I called them twice and left two voicemails. (Yes, they have a huge company, and their phone went straight to voicemail at regular times during the day.) I emailed them three times, I messaged them on Facebook, and I tweeted them. They finally responded when I tweeted at them, but they informed me that they would only refund me 50 percent of what I paid, and I would have to cover the shipping costs, which meant that I would get a little over $5 back in my refund when I paid almost $30 for it. Therefore, it was pretty much pointless to return it, and I was better off just trying to fix the top and never wearing the bottoms since they are completely see through.

It wasn't until I turned to YouTube to listen to other people's reviews to realize that many other people have been scammed by Fashion Nova as well. People placed orders and never received the clothes or their money back, got only half of their order, was sent damaged clothes, and more. There are so many different horror stories that I've heard about Fashion Nova that it honestly drives me crazy that I did not do this research sooner. I only listened to a couple of people that have shopped there and had decent experiences, but unfortunately, I never looked further into it online.

By writing this post, I hope that it spreads the word that Fashion Nova sells cheap and damaged clothes while completely ignoring their customers in order to avoid having to refund the customer their money. It bothers me that a company this large is scamming so many people and I'm surprised that they're still in business because of it. Look up the hashtag #FashionNovaScam, and I promise you that you'll find tons and tons of horror stories with them.

Here is a video of my experience with Fashion Nova and while you watch it, you can see my damaged clothes and how their clothes are poor quality:

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
