“This is why you don’t order from China!” tweeted one Alabama teen after she received a prom dress that was, well, not what she was expecting.
Alivia Briggs is a 17-year-old junior at Austin High School. She’d saved up her own money for a prom dress and was shopping around a couple of months ago when a friend told her about DH Gate, an app that sells everything from clothing to kitchen appliances. http://www.dhgate.com/
Briggs found a dress she loved – dusky pink, with a mermaid skirt and hand-beaded detailing. After reading reviews of the dress, which was from a website called Allanhu, Briggs bought it for $230. She ordered it on March 10; her prom was April 16.
