That's so funny and so true! I can't tell you how many times I've loved the way a shirt looked, but when I felt the material I cringed.

This happens to me all the time! I always see things on the websites of trendy, chain stores like Forever 21 that look cute online...but when I see them in person they LOOK as cheap as they are. The fabric always feels cheap. I hate that.
