Cute Case BUT....
on March 12, 2013
I love Hello Kitty and purchased a HK plug that is so cute - and decided to get this cover to match.
I am giving this 3 stars for the following reason. Packaging/Shipping.
My order arrived March 11, which was way before the estimated arrival of March 19 - April 10. That was a surprise as I know shipping from Hong Kong takes at least a month. Was very happy to get my order before expected!
BUT!!! As soon as I got my package, I knew it would be damaged. The seller shipped my cell phone cover in a small manilla envelope, non padded, with no bubble wrap or protection of any kind. The cell phone was in a plastic bag from the manufacturer. Knowing this order was being shipped to the U.S. - the seller should have protected it much better. It is afterall NOT an Otterbox, and it is a very fragile cover. I do not understand how certain sellers would risk a bad reputation with sub par packaging/shipping. My case was broken at a corner, the corner piece broken off, so it won't hold the cell phone.
The case itself is cute. The Hello Kitty is 3D, has lots of crystals. My HK kitty has a black crystaled bow instead of a gold bow with a center black crystal - but that wouldn't have been a deal breaker for me - it is still cute. It is plastic, The inside of the case has a strip of black velvet. The outside has a strip of leather or leather like fabric with the #D Kitty. I haven't had the opportunity to see if my phone would fit due to the corner being broken off but I would hope it would hsve fit properly.
I won't return it for a refund or to have it replaced because number 1 it will cost me more to ship it back to the seller then the $5 I paid for it, and because I don't want to wait 2 or more months to receive another one. It would take a month for them to get this broken one and another month for me to get a replacement.
All in all, my case arrived broken due to poor packaging/shipping by seller. I hope my issue is a one time thing, I just wanted my review to reflect my experience with this seller.
