I had to come up with a red sweater to wear to work yesterday for Women's Heart Health Day - so "treated myself " to a pretty cotton blend sweater from BR, based on recent rave reviews about quality . Wonderful orangey-red colour, which I NEVER wear but received so many nice compliments on that I'll consider making it more prominent in my closet . Anyways , the ticket price in Canada was $104 (as if) and I bought it at their usual 40% off..... but will be returning it today. Worn for 8 hours, in minimal-stress conditions , and it pilled very badly, looking cheap, old and worn before I even got home. Very unimpressed. Here are some photos to show the wear - am I overreacting here?

And no find available as the bookmarklet feature was not working, telling me to log in first before collecting, while I WAS logged on


I think the photos are out of order - with the middle one being the patch of the sweater that stayed decent-looking, and the other two photos showing the pilling.
