Choker necklaces are becoming a trend recently and I just had to jump on the bandwagon not because I want to stay relevant and pretend I’m cool .. Yeah, that mostly. Anyway I wanted also to share my thoughts about a website similar to Dresslink which I posted few hauls in the past of it, so this website is called LightInTheBox and here’s my first impression of it.
The website basically has EVERYTHING you can think of from clothes to house ware even electronics and their prices are cheap just like Dresslink and CNDirect so I had to test out the quality of the items. I didn’t choose clothes this time since I order them online way too much so I chose these three chokers.
Price: USD $1.99
The first choker is double layered with gem hanging on the lower part. I absolutely love it, it’s my favorite from this haul. The material is sturdy and doesn’t seem it gonna snap anytime soon.
Price: USD $1.99
I’ve always been a fan of gothic fashion so this choker grabbed my attention instantly. The fabric is almost velvety and the pearl is secure in it’s spot, for this price it’s a really high quality item.
Price: USD $2.99
The last item is definitely my least favorite item and I don’t know why it’s priced higher than the previous two items. So the material of it is exactly like the cheap ribbons that can’t be straightened after it gets wrinkled from the packaging. The choker itself is long enough to hang lower as a necklace then a choker that’s why I didn’t like it as much as the other two chokers.
Shipping cost & Insurance: USD $11.72
Overall Total: USD $18.69
The processing of the order took almost a week and few days till I got an email that it got shipped, even though I chose a shipping option with tracking number (S.F Express) it kept showing ‘Not Found‘ which I can assume it’s the shipping company fault since it didn’t even work with their website so avoid that option if you want to track your order.
Overall, I like this website and I would definitely continue buying from it and maybe try out the clothes and dresses they offer.
