Why I Will Never Buy From Vivi Clothes

Tuesday, 17 September 2013

So I was pretty happy when I won a giveaway a couple of weeks back hosted by someone on tumblr. It said on the giveaway that I was going to receive an 'accessory goodie bag' which sounded pretty cool. I was thinking maybe a couple of pieces of jewellery, maybe some socks or a purse or something. Some sort of Japanese fashion item perhaps because they do specialise  Korean and Japanese fashion.

I didn't get any of this. Well I got some jewellery but it stopped there

And I mean I don't mean to sound ungrateful at all and I feel lucky to get items but I do feel very mislead. Not by the blogger who held this becasue they weren't to know, but by Vivi Clothes themselves.

This is what I got, this is not what I call a goodie bag and not remotely 'Japanese Fashion'. I mean they aren't bad items at all, they're cute (especially the teddy earrings) and not badly made, but still, it couldn't have cost them much.

That's the main thing though, they got advertising on the blogger who hosted the giveaway's blog to like 1000 people for this. Which can't have cost them more than £2 (max). It feels like a bit of a scam to the blogger if you ask me. So I guess this is a warning to anyone wanting to hold a giveaway from them, do be warned our followers won't get an amazing prize at all. It just seems like they don't care.

But the main reason I wouldn't buy from them is the way this was packaged. Just as you see above in a small envelope which was pretty useless. When I picked it up from under my door the envelope was ripped by the earrings and I could have easily had absolutely nothing from them.So I do think they need to re think the way they package things.

Overall I feel like I've just been scammed really. I was promised a goodie bag and expecting some Japanese fashion items. I got 3 pairs of earrings from them and they didn't even bother to check if I had my ears pierced before sending this out (I don't).

This isn't the fault of the person who hosted the giveaway either and she feels awful now (which she really shouldn't) and this makes me even more annoyed at Vivi clothes.  I've seen plenty of people on tumblr hosting these giveaways who have no idea that Vivi Clothes is pretty much scamming them for advertising. It's not on at all and I've made this post just to warn people. And vent of course.

Sorry this is a bit messy, but you get the idea.
Don't buy from them is my advice


  1. Oh wow thank you for letting me know on my giveaway post. I didn't know about the "prize" :( and mine also ended already and they told me they sent the prize to the winner. Now I feel really bad :/

    1. I wouldn't feel bad, you weren't to know and I don't feel the blogger was responsible for this at all. Just I wouldn't support this company in the future c:

  2. Good to know! Im surprise that's the item you received, the earrings on the picture itself look more appealing haha


    1. Aha, definitely more expensive. I mean the earrings aren't bad but they can't have cost the company more than £1 which is just ridiculous...

  3. Ergh, that's so rubbish, and completely misleading :( definitely a brand to avoid!xx

  4. Wow, that sounds and looks really bad =/ I can understand not wanting to feel ungrateful, but you are definitely in the right, this isn't a goodie bag of Japanese accessories at all. I think it's good you're warning people about this!

  5. That's why I don't take part in any of giveways :) they sound very interesting, but when it comes to the end - they are not ;)

  6. I had problem with my giveaway as well, they didn't want to send the price to the winner..


I appreciate all of your comments and do see them all. If you have a question I will try and get back to you ASAP. Though please don't ask me to follow you. I check out the blogs of all you lovely people and if I like I'll follow c:
