A woman has gone online to express her displeasure after she ordered a fur coat only to receive a coat made of polyester.
Mikala, 23. was scrolling through Instagram when she saw a sponsored post for a beautiful coat. The coat she ordered for the bargain price of $50.25 was meant to be made of thick and cosy pink fur, and printed with red hearts, but was she received was nothing like what was in the photo.
She got an outfit which she describes as “a piece of paper with sleeves”. The material used in making the coat is so thin you can see through it. The stitching is also horrible.
What she got was made of 95% polyester and 5% spandex, and not fur as she expected.
She was so disappointed that she threw up the middle finger while taking a photo in the coat to share online.
Mikala said she tried to get in touch with the brand Soleila to complain, using the customer service email she found on the website. But she received an email saying her message couldn’t be delivered as the address was not found.

Following the online shopping fail she experienced, Mikala says she won’t be ordering clothes or anything else from Instagram-promoted brands again.
She said: “I’m so frightened of insta brands. And now I have every reason. Never again.”
