We see how it’s wrong but also how it’s very very right.
Journalist and presenter Edwina Bartholomew experienced an all-too familiar shopping fail after she ordered a sweater online.
The 33-year-old purchased a sweet jumper only to realise the quoted size may have been for children.
Bartholomew admitted to the error in the accompanying caption.
“Online shopping fail. When the awesome T-Rex jumper you bought online is too small for you but perfect for your 6 year old cousin,” she said.
The mix-up saw the top swiftly become a hand-me-down to a very happy six-year-old.
One fan suggested the reporter could simply exchange the item for a more suitable size.
Bartholomew responded with the classic reasoning of: you can’t take back a bargain.
“I think it was dirt cheap too so no returning it!”She said.
The image shared on Instagram was an instant hit among fans who remained adamant it wasn’t a fail.
“You could rock that Eddy,” one fan said.
“Nothing wrong with a bit of tummy showing,” another fan said.
One fan commented the top could have still worked out with a few adjustments.
“Should have cut off the sleeves and turned it into a singlet,” they said.
It’s a fair point but sometimes you have call a spade a spade and know when to let go. And when to donate to cute cousins.
