Hi Everyone – this is my FIRST REVIEW of my FIRST REP PURCHASE!! I just joined ~2 weeks ago and honestly, I can’t believe I didn’t know you all existed. To this point I've been an exclusive auth purchaser. I kind of feel like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz when she went from Black and White to Color. It's a whole new world... and I'm super grateful for all the amazing reviews I’ve read so far that have educated me on additional purchases (reviews to come once they arrive!!). Hoping to add value to the group!
Disclosure – Nothing to disclose
TS Wendy – contacted on Whatsapp
1080CNY discounted 12% (I think for Lunar New Year?) to 950.4CNY + 420CNY shipping = 1370.4CNY= $215USD
420CNY through DHL, but arrived in UPS packaging
Contacted TS Wendy on 1/15 with pictures from her Albums (from the TS listings)
She replied same day with pricing and I paid same day (1/15)
PSP’s sent on 1/18
Confirmed shipping on 1/20
Quality – 9.5/10
The tweed fabric is beautiful, and the cardigan looks and feels expensive. The jeweled button detail is really well done as well. Regardless of the brand, this is a well-made garment. Two call-outs though (1) this isn’t lined… which to be honest, I don’t think the auth is either… but it’s still good to know and (2) there were a couple of loose threads (-.5)
Accuracy – 9.5/10
To be fair, I have not seen or touched the auth in person… I live in a city without high-end boutiques (boooo… I make good life choices!). So this review is based solely on side-by-side pic comparison from the auth website.
Pro’s – This is a quality garment with attention paid to detail. The tweed is spot-on, as is the grosgrain ribbon trim. The jeweled buttons are accurate too. And even the red stitching on the tag is well-done (I have other Gucci auth items to compare against).
Con’s – The sizing is definitely off. When communicating with TS Wendy, I told her that I am generally a Size M in auth Gucci clothing. The website suggests sizing... keep reading on reddit ➡

## **Quality – 9.8/10**
This is a high-quality coat. The material is thick and lined and it’s well stitched. The buttons are a little loose, but nothing I can’t fix myself.
## **Accuracy – 9.8/10**
I am extremely happy with the accuracy of this coat. The buttons are spot on, the lining is accurate (with the thin gold chain), the coat material looks the same and it falls the same way as on the model. My only comment would be that the buttons on the sleeve extension are slightly different and the buttons on the right side of the coat are sewed a little too close to the edge. For the cuff, instead of a plain lion head, it is a lion’s head with a pearl (maybe I haven’t seen that version and it exists!)
## **Satisfaction - 10/10**
I am very satisfied with this coat. It’s beautiful, it fits me well, it came with full Chanel packaging, including a branded hanger. It also came with extra sleeve extensions. Also, I know this solely relies on luck, but the fact that I didn’t have to deal with any shipping hassle makes my heart sing 😊 (did I just jinx myself?)
## **Seller Communication and Service - 10/10**
Wendy is super sweet, very quick to reply and honest. This is my second time buying from her. I would highly recommend.
Item: Ready to Rulu Jogger – Neon Tweed Jaquard HTR Battleship Electric Coral
Why I want it: I have never owned RTRs and have heard great things. I am currently WFH and think they would be a comfy addition to my rotation. I think the print is fun and am loving how it looks with the different pairings I am seeing online
Do I own similar items/colours: I don’t own any RTR yet – and no colours that I would say is similar due to the variety of colours this seems to give off. Maybe the closest would be some Roots salt and peppers sweats that my bf and I share LOL
Would it fit with my current wardrobe: I think so… looks like it has a few colours within to play with but my first idea would be something black or white (of which I have plenty) as well as my submarine ½ zip
When can I see myself reaching for it: WFH outfits/lounging, for running layers potentially, upper body lifting days
Can I fit it in my budget: Yes … it is on WMTM but my size seems to be steadily in stock so my hesitation is wondering if it would drop further
Pros: good jogger rotation, fun colour, comfy, has great reviews, would be all-around useful in my wardrobe, don’t have this type of jogger yet
Cons: wondering if I’m being too hopeful for a colourful-ish bottom… my pallet is black lol. I have only one other pair of non-black lulu bottoms and my other joggers (scuba, DSJ and really old jet crops) are all plain black.
What's holding me back: sale price – at $89 they still come out to $100 with tax (also CAN so WMTM is final sale) considering I’ve never owned this kind of jogger before and our stores are closed. Worried I’m just in love with the idea of it. Also wondering if I’m just curious to be missing out on the hype of RTR when maybe they’re not for me. I’m also trying to be really critical before pulling the trigger on my purchases so I’m like do I really need them. Which makes me laugh considering how much all my current joggers would have cost in comparison...

I was going through Reddit when a post reminded me of this train wreck of an engagement! This isn’t my story but the story of my friend a man who at the time was in his late 20s, well over 6ft4,shy and hardcore gamer/metal head.
At the time he was engaged to a free spirited princess who dreamed of the big wedding in Disney world! She wanted the big cake,the big dress and would style her outfits everyday so she would resemble a Disney princess. All this is fine (her outfits were pretty cute) but the problem is he was the only one working, yet she did a lot of spending.
When they first got engaged she instantly began wedding planning and things were getting ridiculously expensive but he had little to no input whatsoever. After adding it all up and doing the budgeting my friend finally spoke up and put his foot down. He’s an easy going guy and was happy for her to plan the whole thing how she wanted, he knew she’d been planning this for years. Problem was he simply couldn’t afford everything she wanted. He offered her a compromise that they had the smaller wedding but the dream Disney honeymoon she wanted and even agreed she could get the dream dress. This compromise was going well until she began picking out the grooms outfit.
She wanted him to wear a white head to toe tweed suit and pink shoes to match her flowers. He agreed to try it on and a few of his friends went with him for support and they all agreed it didn’t look like him. As I mentioned earlier he’s a chill guy but he’s very shy and introverted and he felt very uncomfortable in the suit.
He attempted another compromise, he will wear the shoes but wanted a black or grey slightly more traditional outfit. This is when she flipped and had a major meltdown in front of family and friends at a BBQ they were hosting. When he’d tried on the suit and decided he didn’t want to wear it everyone assumed that was the end of it but this had become a heated argument behind closed doors we learnt for over two weeks.
The first sign of a meltdown I heard was a loud screaming in their garden. I was getting another beer at the time so came running outside to see what had happened. The bride to be was on the floor screaming and crying literally throwing a tantrum like a small child. She had been trying to pressure him into wearing the suit again at the party by telling all his family about the suit and how he looks great in it! She’d been going around the garden trying to get people to convince him to... keep reading on reddit ➡
I saw a video recently of a man in a tweed suit climbing. I think he was on a climbing wall but he was just using his feet. Please help a brother out!
