Annie Cloth Review and Order Details

I ordered the below items on 12/7/2023 to my address in North Carolina (United States). I paid a total of $122.76 to Confidence&Collaboration fashion studio.com via PayPal. The charge appears on my credit card statement as “PAYPAL *CONFIDEVWZU”. View Order Confirmation 

1) Mini Ethnic Dress Crew-Neck

  • Color, Size, and Cost: Blue / M / $20.99
  • Country: Made in China
  • Material: The product page states 100% Viscose.

Expectation: It is what I was expecting, for the most part, in terms of overall appearance. The pattern details look a bit more enlarged and bold in person.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is mediocre. See my Quality Comparison & Rating Chart to know my current quality-rating standards.

Fit: I ordered based on the size guide provided, and it fits a size too big. View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return this Annie Cloth dress.

Though it is cheaply priced and feels lightweight and stretchy like a tee (great in the summer), it is unflattering and cheaply made. It fits like a maternity dress, has extra fabric sticking out of the internal seams, and has loose threads. Perhaps a belt would make this look  better…

2) Furry Buckle Lapel-Collar Faux-Fur Jacket

  • Color, Size, and Cost: Wine Red / M / $63.99
  • Country: Made in China
  • Material: The product page states 5% Elastane / 40% Polyester / 55% Polyvinyl Chloride.

Expectation: It is VERY different from what I was expecting in terms of overall appearance. The color is more red-looking and the ‘fur’ looks MUCH flatter and duller in person. The entire thing just doesn’t sit on my body the same way it does on the model in the product image.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is terrible and unwearable. See my Quality Comparison & Rating Chart to know my current quality-rating standards.

Fit: I ordered based on the size guide provided, and it fits one size too big. View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return this Annie Cloth jacket.

WOW. This is one of the worst pieces of clothing I have ever tried on. It feels like soft and thin piece of cardboard that is nearly structureless. It sits on my body like a cooked noodle. The ‘fur’ has no life to it, and is so thin that you can see the netting at the base of the fabric where each strand of fur enters and exits. Almost all of the seams are unfinished and raw on the outside. Very ugly, messy, unfinished edges with loose threads. I don’t think this will survive one wash without damage to it. The outer faux leather feels like a slightly textured latex glove. With all of that said, I am offended by the price.

3) Loose Ethnic Boho Shorts

  • Color, Size, and Cost: Khaki / M / $12.99
  • Country: Made in China
  • Material: Different materials are listed in two places:
    • Product page- 95% Polyester / 5% Spandex
    • Care label- Polyester

Expectation: It is what I was expecting, for the most part, in terms of overall appearance. The color is a bit more pink than tan in person.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is mediocre. See my Quality Comparison & Rating Chart to know my current quality-rating standards.

Fit: I ordered based on the size guide provided, and it is the right size, but not the right fit my body shape. View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return these Annie Cloth shorts.

To name a few positives, they are comfy and cute, the waist fits perfectly, the inseam is a great length, and I like the flared leg style. As for the negatives, the material feels like a really thin and somewhat cheap polyester. As a result, they produce static cling and wrinkle easily. I also have a bit of a high natural waist, and they give me a wedgie when pulled up at a comfortable height. Even though they are very cheap, the static cling and the wedgie issues make them not worth purchasing for me.

4) I’m Cold Letter Hoodie

  • Color, Size, and Cost: Khaki / L / $29.99
  • Country: Made in China
  • Material: Different materials are listed in two places:
    • Product page- Polyester
    • Care label- 35% Cotton / 65% Polyester

Expectation: It is what I was expecting, for the most part, in terms of overall appearance. It is a few inches longer than I expected.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is okay. See my Quality Comparison & Rating Chart to know my current quality-rating standards.

Fit: I ordered based on the size guide provided, and it fits oversized (I sized up intentionally). View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return this Annie Cloth hoodie.

Even though I like the long tunic length, oversized and lightweight fit, and the inverted seams style (this is really unique), the price is a bit steep considering the screen-printed text is low-quality and a bit off-center. The screen-printed text is stuck on like shiny stickers (you usually find this on lower-quality clothes). It will start cracking and peeling after a few wash/dry cycles. For $30, I want something a bit sturdier and softer (the inside material feels like a super thin towel).

If your return is international, I recommend printing out the native language version of the return address. For example, if your return needs to be shipped to China, print out the address written in Chinese characters. Tape it on the package next to the provided English address — per the advice of a USPS worker, doing this can help with delivery on the other side (though it is not mandatory for successful delivery).

If you received the same return address as I did and it is an international address, I have provided it above. Otherwise, it may be worth asking customer service for it.

Support Experience

  • They were very prompt in getting me the prepaid return label.
  • They alternatively offered me the following refund/return option:
    • Partial refund of 50% + keep the items

Provided Return Instructions:

  1. Please print and attach the provided return label to the package.
  2. Drop it off at any USPS location or mailbox within 14 days of submitting the return request, as the label will expire.

Return Notes:

  • We recommend submitting all items in one return request and sending back your items in one shipment to avoid paying additional fees.  
  • We will process your refund request within 3-5 days of receiving and examining your returned item(s). Credit or debit cards may take an additional 3-7 business days to process. 
  • The provided return label only works ONCE and ONLY for one return parcel. Please make sure that the item(s) you are returning match the details listed on your return request. If you need to return additional items from the same order, please contact us for a new return label.

Reverse Image Search:

I found several of the same products on Amazon, Temu, Shein, AliExpress, etc. for much cheaper. For example, I found the below long-sleeve shirt for $15.29 on Annie Cloth, and $6.37 on Temu. I highly recommend doing reverse image searches when shopping online to ensure you are not getting ripped off.

Do I Recommend This Shop?

Based on my experience, they are a legitimate shop. I paid for my items, received them within the estimated time frame, successfully completed a return, and received a full refund.

With that being said, I personally would not shop here again.

The one positive thing is that customer service responded to me promptly with the prepaid return label. Aside from that, there’s not much else that is great. The clothing quality isn’t good (the jacket, in particular, is HORRID quality and is crazy expensive), it took over 3 weeks for everything to arrive, the material descriptions on the product pages of some items are inaccurate (you’re getting polyester not cotton kind of thing), and many of their items can be found for much cheaper on other sites.

To wrap up this review, regardless of my experience, be sure to read as many customer reviews as possible. If you found this post helpful in your search for Annie Cloth reviews, please consider sharing and commenting (via Reddit) below. Have a great day!
