Why I Love BlackMilk [Review]

Hi everyone

Sorry for the hiatus, I had finals and had a lack of ambition to do much before and a tad after them. But I will be posting more now!

So if you haven't read the title of this post, here is my review on BlackMilk Clothing.

This is a brand from Australia, and is pretty well known if you're on social media sites like Facebook and Instagram. They are known for their shinny nylon goodness such as leggings, dresses, etc. They pretty much make the clothes you see a tumblr goddess in. 

So the question is: What's so great about BlackMilk Clothing?

1.) Customer Service
When I bought from BlackMilk a few weeks ago, I filled in the little special request box before checking out asking for more stickers (I'm addicted and stuck these all over stuff in my room). When I received my order form when I got my leggings in the mail, Kelly who probably was the one who packaged my order hand wrote "Wish Granted" on it. I honestly have never had this happen with ordering online, and I was super impressed.  They also have staff answer questions on their Facebook page all the time if people are wondering about their products.


2.) Quality
Let me be honest here, there really is nothing compared to BlackMilk, and I yet to find a perfect dupe for their products. When you compare their galaxy leggings to some you can find at places like Forever21, there's a huge difference. For the price of your purchase, you are getting something high quality and durable. I have had my first purchase since May, and nothing has gone wrong and I literally wear them all the time. They have not over stretched, snagged, had stitching start pulling out, what have you. You also don't need to worry about your panties showing through them (which is a BIG problem for me when I wear my other leggings and it's not a cute style lol)

Both my pairs of leggings are opaque, and you can't see your legs through them no matter what. They are made from a thick material, yet neither to hot or to cold to wear in different climates. 


3.) Original
The prints on BlackMilk Clothing are things you won't find anywhere else. Anytime I have worn my purple galaxy leggings out and about I've had people give me compliments on them, or ask to touch my legs (their products have this cool shinny look to them, it's pretty badass). You also don't see them around a whole lot, which is good for those who don't like having the same clothes as others.

They also have collections like Mass Effect, Adventure Time, Harry Potter, etc. So the prints are pretty popular within pop-culture. 

4.) Fit
Im not gunna lie, once I had BlackMilk leggings, I have a hard time wearing other ones. They fit like a dream and hide a lot of areas you don't want being shown. They are a little tight, so they suck everything in (if ya get what Im sayin')

Here's me in both my pairs. I'm 5'3" and weigh about 130 lbs. I purchased a size Small in both.

5.) Shipping
I'm always shocked at how fast I get these babies in the mail. It takes about 2 weeks for me to get them by choosing standard international shipping. I do live in the United States, so I don't know how long it would take for other countries (sorry)! I also do not have to pay customs on these when they arrive when I have chosen this option.

The only thing I do not like about choosing standard is that I do not get a tracking order number. This bugs me since it is being shipped in from another country, let alone continent. This is probably the only thing I hate about BlackMilk.

Shipping is also free, which is pretty rad!

When you receive your order, it comes in a durable, black, thick plastic, envelope style package that has the BlackMilk logo right on it.


-----------------------------------------------
So in all, if you're willing to pay the price for BlackMilk, it is definitely worth it. Seeing as though my leggings were both $67.05 USD (no tax), it's a pretty pricey item to buy. But if you're on the verge of getting an item from them, I'd say to do it, you won't be displeased!

Pros:
+ Customer Service
+ Staple pieces you don't see everywhere
+ Free Shipping
+Great Quality for Price

Cons:
+ No tracking number for Standard International Shipping
