Disillusionment…

That pair of crystal embellished fingerless gloves by Karl Lagerfeld I bought through Net-A-Porter, it turned out not that dazzling after all but more like a huge disappointment.
I wore them once when I went out to join the aforementioned event at Siren Gallery and upon my return home, I noticed one of the crystals was already coming off! After a mere few hours wear, how could this happen!

After a close examination, I discovered in horror that the crystal in concern was stuck to the leather with just double-sided tape!!

No craws nor stitching are securing them on the gloves!  How cheaply they have been manufactured, I am appalled.
By buying big name designer brands from reputable retailers, I used to feel like giving myself some sense of security. However, this discovery not only has left me a nasty aftertaste but also disillusioned me completely.
I am disgusted and disgruntled by the way this particular designer’s brand is trying to rip off ordinary consumers like me. Gluing plastic stones on thin leather and charging £89 for that? Absolutely despicable!

I have contacted Net-A-Porter already and the gloves are going back to them for a full refund…
