Took sometime to get, but I think I just use to Amazon Prime. It is shiny and it looks more purple than navy blue. Sadly, my dogs hair shows up on it, but I am going to keep it because it keeps my over priced down comforter clean. So overall it works fine.
As soon as I received them (grey, not too dark, not too light, just right) I threw them in the washer and dryer and put them on my bed. They're so soft and completely worth the money. The color did not fade after the first wash (warm wash/regular speed dry) The pillowcases in the set weren't a necessity for me, but I'm glad I made the decision to buy them.
