When buying clothes online you can never guarantee that the thing that you ordered will look exactly as it was advertised.
There are advantages to shopping online, though. If, like me, you hate battling the crowds, navigating the lines, and avoiding the dead eyes of the retail workers as they ask whether you want an emailed receipt, online shopping is the solution.
And the stress of clothes shopping with a child, I can only imagine, is much worse. Pushing a stroller through the crowds, having to say "no" a million times to all the things that your kid picks up, and the tears... Yikes.
It's no surprise, then, that moms and dads across America are turning to online shopping to buy their little angels the latest fashion items.
However, when mom of one, Kelsey Dawn Williamson, twenty-three, of Benton, Illinois, purchased a cute shirt for her three-year-old daughter from an online retailer, she got quite a surprise.
Kelsey purchased the tee from online retailer, AliExpress.
Kelsey has reportedly bought her daughter, Salem, countless items from the e-commerce retailer.Talking to Buzzfeed about the incident, Kelsey said, "Salem probably has 50-plus different little boutique outfits from my favorite store on AliExpress".
What a well-dressed three-year-old!When I was growing up my closet was hand-me-down central.
Fair play to Kelsey, though, apparently the t-shirt in question only cost five bucks!It would seem that shopping online has its advantages. Although, given that Kelsey didn't get what she ordered, it's a good job that it was cheap!
Kelsey patiently waited for the cute froggy tee to arrive...Ordering anything from China can take a long time; patience is a must if you wanna make those big savings!
She believed that she had ordered a perfectly innocent tee.It was described on the website as "Kids Two Frog Riding Design Baby Boys/Girl TShirt Kids Funny Short Sleeve Tops Children Cute T-Shirt."
Bit of a mouthful, right?The trouble with online shopping nowadays is that you can't just put "white t-shirt," if you want it to pop up on anyone's computer screen; you need to say something more along the lines of "fairtrade cotton, ethical, Jenifer Aniston style, 90s casual, ladies unisex, work man's, homer simpson-esque, small, white tee".
Navigating the jargon of online shopping can confuse anyone.Saying that, Kelsey was definitely misinformed when purchasing her daughter's shirt...
Look closely at the design that Kelsey thought she was buying...As you can see, the innocent design wouldn't have caused even the slightest stir if it had arrived exactly as advertised.
The design of the shirt pays homage to a series of children's books.
