Virgin Blak Order and Review

That's right, I stopped posting and then poofed for a while from my social networking sites, which means
its time for me to do another blog post!!
Y'know, I should probally stay more on top of my blog.

So I got a job, which is a thing, and I always live by, save what you need to save for
But have fun with your first pay cheque, so i did! I bought myself a PS Vita and a
order from this website called Virgin Blak. I found out about them a while back.
Maybe 1 or 2 summers ago? It was posted by Someone on facebook, and i checked it out,
instantly dying on the inside, because I was still in school and I thought i'd never have that kind of money
Then i got a job and realised that its more than possible!! 

So lets kick off the review by talking about the site itself. I find the site quite easy to navigate, but
it can be a little glitchy from time to time, regardless of the browser I use. However this could also
be my computer as I have not yet had a chance to try it out on both of my computers.
Visually its very appealing to me, its edgy enough, without being too over the top or too generic. So
overall the site itself did very good.

Site itself: 4/5 Stars

So onto delivery times!
I ordered from them once before over christmas, and I didnt use the fedex delivery. This was a mistake
There were delays because of the holidays, and my item just kinda hung around in Korea for weeks
yeah, it wasn't good and I got kind of pissed off, but that wasn't Virgin Blak's fault, I should
have payed extra for expected delivery, which to the UK isn't THAT much more expensive
other than the part where it is, but I'd say its worth it, as this time I used it and got my much larger order in
under a week.

Standard Delivery: 2/5 Stars
Expected: 4/5 Stars

Finally, the items!! I won't be reviewing them, as although i've tried them all on, i haven't really gone out in them yet, and I kinda feel like that's necessary for a review.

For the packaging...The packaging isnt exactly anything special, but it isnt bad. Its just plastic wrap that has the Virgin Blak logo on it, but it does its job. 

Packaging 3/5 Stars 

First Item!
Mesh Leopard Print Top

 If you know me, then you know I have an unhealthy obsession with leopard print. Unhealthy for my wallet at least, which ironically is not leopard print. I have to say, when i saw this top it was just an insta-buy. The material is soft, It looks great, everything about it is just wonderful. I do wish the neckline was bigger tho, and that's probably something I'll fix up myself, but other than that, it's amazing. 

Faux Leather Shorts

I know what you're thinking. Or maybe I dont. I've had mixed reviews on these shorts from friends
I have to say that I personally love them, and think they're gonna look amazing with a pair of
black 3/4 length leggings under them. I got them because I dont actually own any shorts and
I'd never seen something quite like these before, ugh, I just love em!!! 

Faux Leather Pants

I have never actually owned any skinny leather pants before, so these were a "Let's see what they're like"
Kinda purchase. They feel pretty comfortable, from when i tried them on. They fit just fine,
they look great. I love em. Now to build a whole co-ord around them, hehe. 

Snake Print Tank Top
(Pretend there is a picture here and i totally didn't derp and forget to take it)

This I have to say is the only disappointment. I got it to go under the mesh shirt and while it works, I kinda
wanted a top that was more...fitted, y'know? Since baggy under baggy just makes a person look kinda
fat. I hope i find some kinda use for it, since I do like it! I just cant use it for what i got it for, which sucks. 

Skull Bag 

If you've ever seen me at a gal meet, you'll know I didn't own a "Gal-O Bag". I just had what my fiance
and I call "The European shoulder bag". Which is nice, it did its job, but it was kinda boring. So I'm so happy i have this bag!! It has so much room in there for my stuff (by that I mean my phone, wallet, netbook and PSVita) , it's just perfect and everything I look for in a bag.

Alright guys, so overall Virgin Blak Gets

5/5 Stars
