Please keep up the good work. I don't know, or care, how you changed your process for online returns. Whatever the reasons, I am grateful for email notifications arriving in under 10 days. And my dedicated Anthro return money in 24 hours. If you had kept up the snails pace, my Cream Confection Coat would have sold out before I had my return credit.
I may be an Addict, but I am smart enough not to use a credit card.
And please beef up your quality control personnel.

The Cream Confection Coat was Wish Listed in Cream, Black and Camel.
Camel was sold out in my size. I don't wear Black often. The obvious choice was Cream.
How on earth will I manage to keep this coat clean?
The coat looked passable right out the package. But my OCD-ness demands perfect presentation. I unbuttoned the ruffle and ironed out the creased areas. Then attacked the coating of dark lint stuck to my cream coat with a sticky roller.
Such perfection. Then, hello cute Cotton Polka Dot/Bow Lining. Why are you upside-down? I am curious if anyone else noticed this. Is it a flaw, or a cute detail? Are the bows falling down perhaps? If you own this coat, please comment. Curiosity is killing me.

I normally would pass on this top. Cowl necks hang down, adding folds of bulky material on my chest. The last thing I need. And it wasn't until recently that I have come to appreciate the vertical stripe. Read my Post "The Fashionable Stripe - One Busty Gals Testimonial" here.

Did you find the things that don't belong in the second image?
If you observed an extra clear spacer bead at the base of the flattened beads in my image, you are correct. There is only one reason for this addition. The center holes of the flat beads were drilled too wide for the head pins.
This was clearly a quick last minute fix. Gold spacers would have been more in line as a color choice. I would not even purchase this on sale. Perhaps others will appreciate, what I see as a flaw.
Not recommended full price - Clearly a last minute fix that impacts the design in a noticeable and negative way.
How do you feel about writing a negative review? Especially knowing your review may be the first. Do you ever feel bad and gloss over the negativity because everyone else loved it?
As a reviewer, I am obligated to point out both negative and positive observations. The impact should not be considered. If my review is first, it's even more important to be honest. The next buyer is basing a purchase entirely on my observations.
Don't forget to comment if you have the Cream Confection Coat. Is the lining up-side-down as I see it? Does it matter?
