First Purchase from Haute Look

I had signed up for a Haute Look account quite a while ago--over a year ago. It wasn't until last month that I finally made my first purchase as it was a deal that I couldn't pass up.

Not Your Daughter's Jeans capris in blue-black.

The label on it says that it's premium denim.

There is fancy embroidered detailing with crystal accents on the pockets

The price of these on Haute Look was only $39.95 and I paid only $7.95 for shipping. In Macys and Nordstrom here, they are priced at anywhere from $88.00 on up. Another problem besides the high price that I have with instore purchases is the difficulty in finding my size. I was lucky to get this in a size 2P. I've been wanting to try a 0P but I haven't found it instore to try. The 2P is just very slightly loose in the waist/hip area but I think that if I wash and throw this in the dryer, it'll shrink a bit. It can also use some shrinkage in length as it is just slightly longer than I want.

I'm so happy with my purchase and I'll probably do another one if a sale like this comes up again. I already have two pairs of long jeans in this brand in black and I paid full retail price at Macys. The only thing that would have made this purchase perfect would be faster shipping. It took 3 weeks for me to get my order.

I've always wondered about Hautelook, they have such great deal (these included) I have been a member for a while but haven't purchased from them yet. Its a shame to hear they have such slow shipping.

I've never ordered from hautelook, sales have always caught my eye but the value of the product was never worth the $13+ shipping. Glad you had a nice experience and I hope it shrinks to fit as desired =]

&& ohhh thanks for letting me know =] now i'm even more excited to use the sunscreen!!!

@Brianna--Now that you're back in the U.S., you should definitely try it if you find a really good deal. Just be prepared to wait a bit for it to be delivered to you. I think that for a good bargain, I'm willing to wait for a delivery.

@Steph--Hopefully you'll find something one day that will make the $13.00 + shipping worth it.

You're welcome! Raysella has one for the face too but the body one works just as well and actually has more product in it.

Awesome deal! :D I've never ordered from any clothes deals on Hautelook...but lately I've been kind of wanting to. Glad these worked out for you. Yay for new jeans!

@tiffyama--I think that it helped that I know the brand and size that fits me although I do realize that fit can differ with different styles and even same style and same size. So happy that I got a great deal. Will definitely pay more attention to their sales email notices.
