Third Time Is Charm - Right?

I've ordered two different comforter sets and returned both of them.  Why do they look so great in the picture and the description sounds perfect, only to get them and they are really bad.  Now these weren't cheap sets, but they looked like they came from the 5 and Dime when they got here.

Ok, I am pushing on and I have ordered this set.

Vue® Barcelona Convertible King Coverlet-to-Duvet Cover Set in Ivory
  • Get two beautiful bedding sets in one with the Barcelona Convertible Coverlet-to-Duvet Cover Set from Vue
  • By inserting a comforter (sold separately) you can turn this light and breathable quilted coverlet into a warm and cozy duvet cover
  • Perfect for enjoying year-round comfort without having to swap bedding ensembles
  • Design features modern floral medallions and beautiful scrolling leaves
  • Button-up closure
This also sounds perfect doesn't it.  Well, let's wait and see.

  1. I hope this one works out Marty, it looks great on the picture!

  2. Ooh! I am interested to see how this one turns out...I have never seen anything quite like it, but I like the heavier weight/ coverlet look! Keep us posted!

  3. This is an exceptionally lovely one, Marty - sure hope it works out for you. I buy everything (nearly) online and know that returns are necessary - but all too often the pictures are soooooo misleading. There is a discounter online I quit buying from for just that reason - looks off white in pic and comes dark as a dark beige in person. That is wrong of them to lighten up pics like that or describe as such.

    But unless it is Homegoods I won't usually shop in person, I hate to, takes too long and the extra spending isn't a good thing.

  4. Hi Miss Marty, I wanted to ask you are you looking for a white set or ivory? If you are indeed looking for a white set I too had the same struggle locating a spread for the guest room. I was finally victorious at Target.

  5. Hit enter before I was ready. Over the years I have yet to find a white comforter cover that doesn't need a ton of ironing to maintain it. :( Hope you are successful.

  6. Looks beautiful Marty....hope this one is the charm!

  7. The pattern is beautiful, Marty. Fingers crossed that this one is as gorgeous in person as it is in the picture.

  8. So pretty , Marty…think this one is perfect!!

  9. Hopefully when it arrives, it will look just like the picture!

  10. Hi Marty,
    Thank you for your sweet comments on my grandson's wedding! I've enjoyed browsing thru your blog, everything is so pretty! Love the bedding, I hope it works!


  11. OOOOH that's gorgeous! I can't even contemplate having something white.... I have three dogs... and 3 boys... LOL
