On the other hand, I did note at the time that the goods at Zaftique are a touch…well…inconsistant in quality of design. After taking a stroll through some of their latest offerings, I’m here to show you just why it’s a good idea to tread carefully on this site.
Take, for instance, these leggings.
They may only cost fourteen dollars, but they are so very wrong. They are also pure polyester, so the legs they encase like sausages cannot possibly breathe. It is also recommended that one handwash them. Handwash polyester? Twistie saves handwashing for very delicate silks, not polyester. The point of man-made fibers was ease of care, once upon a time. Twistie thinks this is still the only excuse for several.
Oh, and if the floral pattern is what’s worrying you, they are also available in pin dots, in brown and white, navy and white, black and white, or black and pink.
Why, Zaftique? Why? What did we ever do to you?
And then there’s this dress:
<>Where to even begin? The bizarre cut of the neckline? The funny little cap sleeves that will not cover the lumpy-squishies of the target audience for this dress? The preciously embroidered overskirt? No, I think I can find far better ways of spending $129.
<> The worst of it is I think there could be a really pretty dress buried under all those unfortunate details.
