I first found out about Mura Boutique on Instagram. When I was scrolling through the explore section, I noticed the most adorable picture of one of their rompers and instantly fell in love with the brand. I love how a lot of their clothing is so different than what I have seen from American brands. I visited the website and loved probably 95% of what they have listed… the only downside was the price. Australia is notorious for being more expensive than the states, so when I saw the prices I wasn’t too surprised. After being bombarded with cute Instagram post after cute Instagram post, I decided to make a purchase (oh social media marketing). I bought a printed ‘playsuit’ with an open back in the size 8, which is a small in American sizing. What you have to remember when you buy from overseas, is there will more than likely be an obscene shipping cost ($15 to ship to the US).
When DHL delivered my package, I was so excited to try on my new romper. I ran to my room and opened the package and was happy to see that the romper looked exactly like it did online. However, being the 5 foot 9 inch tall home girl I am, when I tried it on my booty cheeks where hanging out. I was so annoyed because I spent so much money on it and I am usually a size small everywhere else. Despite returning it like any normal human being, being the lazy person I am (shout out to you if you read my Nars review), I didn’t send it back to the store. Instead, I shoved it in my closet with the thought that maybe I could wear it if I paired it with an oversized knit sweater that covered my butt (nope not gonna happen, folks). What is good about Mura Boutique, is they have a strong customer service team and they are more than willing to make a return or exchange for you within a certain timeframe. Everyone knows it is difficult to purchase something online from a different country without knowing the sizing and trying it on first. Learn from me and take advantage of the return policy if you’re going to spend all that money!
Overall, I love Mura Boutique’s clothing and brand presence (sorry I am a marketing major). Their Instagram is amazing and they are always posting cute outfit combinations and their new arrivals. Although I only make a purchase once in awhile, two out of the three outfits I own from them worked out great! I definitely recommend checking out Mura, just make your decision thoroughly and order a size up if you are weary.
Note: I am selling the first romper I received from Mura on my Poshmark closet since clearly it is too late to return something I bought n February. You can find that HERE!
