Revising my previous review

Great Price, Not So Great Customer Service
I ordered this product and received it immediately. One of the items is missing (#115 blouse). There is the instructions document, but not the actual product. I received an email from another buyer that stated the same issue. I have tried repeatedly to get through to customer service and have not been able to speak to anyone.
