Recently I placed an order through Shopruche.com for some bridesmaid dresses. Shopruche is similar to modcloth in that they sell vintage inspired clothing. I have done some extensive internet digging on modcloth and have found enough negative reviews to discourage me from shopping there.
Shopruche did not have as many negative reviews or reviews at all for that matter and I decided to give them a try.
1) Please to meet you floral dress ($48.99 USD reg. )
This dress is exactly like the picture. ( Pardon my camera) The fabric is polyester but the construction of the dress is nice. The zipper at the back is nice and sturdy and there aren’t loose threads flying everywhere. Although the price is a little bit much for something polyester the construction and the style made up for it. Also, I received free shipping and a $30 discount on the entire order making this dress 38 Cnd total. It is very reasonable for a dress of this quality to be around 38 bucks after tax.
2) Louisa Printed Dress By Darling UK ($88.99 USD)
The colour of the dress is a bit more orangy than previously thought but this could be due to my computer screen setting. The price of this dress is a bit steep for polyester material but again the style and the construction of the dress makes up for it. Also it is a brand in the UK and I find the UK stuff are normally a bit more expensive for their quality ( Top Shop anyone?) I once bought a blazer from a UK brand that is polyester for around $60 Cnd which was quite expensive but the style more than made up for it. This dress after the discount is $82 Cnd.
The package came in a shipping pouch and the dresses were wrapped nicely in tissue
Shipping was relatively quick, it took only a week to get here ( from FULLERTON, CA to Toronto, ON)
Shopruche uses UPS to deliver to the border then Canada Post for delivery within Canada, I personally did not get charged with additional custom fees. ( Thank goodness) last time I paid $58 on something that costed $100, it was brutal.
Satisfied, will order again. Love the vintage inspired styles. The only down side is that like modcloth, the styles run out quite quickly and if you really like something, you gotta move fast. Free shipping $75 or more.
