Chicnova Review & Cropped Top Haul !!

Product Sent by the Brand

Hi All,

I got the opportunity to team up with Chicnova recently for a review post. For my Chicnova review, the team sent me a cropped top. The top is known as Vintage Grey Sleeveless T-Shirt with Tiger and Letters Print in their site which is a Graphic Cropped Muscle Tee.
It’s the perfect Crop Top to wear with a pair of skinny jeans and boots or denim short and sporty shoes. You can even pair it up with a skirt or above your favourite plain coloured tee.
In this post, I am gonna introduce you to chicnova, explain my shopping experience and speak a few words about the top.

My Take on the Chicnova Website:

I received my parcel in about 25 days. It took nearly a month. The problem is not because of Chicnova but because of the customs of our country. My parcel got struck with customs and it took so much time for clearance.
I was charged about Rs.500/- as customs which is basically near the actual amount of the tee.
I was extremely disappointed with the matter and I immediately explained it to Chicnova Customer Care Team. While Chicnova doesn’t reimburse back the customs amount, they promised me that they will give points to me worth the amount to shop. Isn’t it so sweet of them?
I have shopped from Chicnova various times and I never had to pay customs or wait this long. This time it was unfortunate. The courier fellow told me that the customs CN22 declaration form was not filled and it was not marked as gift which is the reason I had to pay.
The customer care people at Chicnova are very friendly and it made me happy. They have promised me that they will take care it doesn’t happen next time. YAYY !!
If you are going to shop from Chicnova, make sure you opt for a free shipping method and give special instructions to mark your order as gift and put a low value.
I am confused about the shipping method via which my package came. While the package says Air Mail, there is another label with DTDC and it got delivered by SKYNET Courier. I had to transfer the customs amount to the SKYNET Courier and after 2 days of paying the customs my package arrived.
The package came intact and there are no damages. The product was safe. There is nothing fancy; the packaging is simple but efficient.

Here are the pics of my Package:

 I will definitely shop with Chicnova again in the near future. 
I have gained weight due to the bed rest of one month and the tee doesn’t look that great on me na?
This cropped tee is really pretty with tiger and letter prints. The print appears like a sticker. I haven’t washed it yet and I hope it doesn’t fade away.
The tee has a round neck and big sleeves. The tee is stretchable and one size fits all I guess. The shade is a faded black/grey with white prints. I love this tee for its very summery and comfy. The material is very soft and perfect for summers. It is damn comfortable to wear.I had to alter the top a bit.
