Foxy I have the Grazia if you want me to post you the voucher?
You should get it for Thursday, and it expires on Friday.

QueenCadbury Tue 05-Mar-13 13:48:15

foxy I have last weeks grazia with the voucher if you want it? I can post it but may not get to you by Friday? Otherwise if you want to drive over and get it you can? Any other Friday I can go shopping if you're up for it?

Ooh sleep love the Marant and the bag, here's to digging out loved items!

FrugalFashionista Tue 05-Mar-13 13:51:35

Carrie my mother recently gave me a pair of navy suede loafers (classic low circa 1" heel) she had bought in the 1990s/early 2000s in Italy but never worn. They are fantastic quality and very middle-aged easy to wear, and I'm happy I've been able to give them a new life. But they feel preppy and I'm not preppy. I think I recognize your 1994 shoes -my Prada lookalikes were aubergine-colored, fantastically ugly and painfully high grin <never again>

MarshaBrady Tue 05-Mar-13 13:53:17

Decam really close call, but have to go with the Prada!

Sleep love the Marant monty, and the Duffy and our group homage to orange grin.

Carrie it will be so warm, it will be divine. I went way back when, as a student in Boston. Flew from the freezing cold snow to sunshine. So nice.

anni have just replied to your message. x

carrie i don't know what size i need in the breton, and the tee is sold out on JL online so was going to try my luck instore. get up at 5am to run?! you know I am right there with you (albeit on the mat....) grin

i LOVE that prada. wowsers.

sleep i am so tempted to order white jeans now the sun is shining! but apparently it's going to start chucking it down here by the end of the week so yet again the boots will come out. depressing!

MarshaBrady Tue 05-Mar-13 13:56:00

Sleep mine are due at 3.30 (typical, have asked for earlier). Turns out they did have two pairs of dusty need to be drycleaned Goldsigns hanging around in the basement!

foxysocks Tue 05-Mar-13 13:57:27

argh am too slow typing! queenc that is so kind too, anni can get hers in the post today so hopefully will arrive tomorrow/thurs in time for fridays JL jaunt! otherwise would have snapped your hand off :-) and YES to another friday, i have H (my two yr old) on friday mornings and he is quite the fashionista. "no Mummy, no like. YES, <points dramatically> THIS one. I LIKE IT."

***********NOBODY ORDER ANYTHING ELSE FROM STYLE PASSPORT******** they are ceasing trading!!! Unless they can sort their investments out. My two jackets have not yet been despatched - they are checking into what happens next and calling me back but I fear I will lose the cash. Just what I need. If you have orders in place at present I suggest you call and check.

Annianni Tue 05-Mar-13 14:00:28

I've had a try-on and think I will wear the Whistles jacket, with dark skinnys, a white tee, leopard print ballet pumps and the red Dvf bag.

The Gigi's finally arrived today, and they're going straight back sad
The black and white, is more like black and cream... and cream makes me look ill.
The blue is lovely, but I think i'd like to try the next size up and i'm not willing to pay another £18 in delivery costs, so I'll wait and try them in an actual shop.

I've had another delivery...
This is cotton and lovely for 20
Cheap 7 grey tee
This is cotton again, but 2 inches longer than the grey, looked daft on me so will be returned.
Canvas bag it was £20 in the sale and will do for park and zoo trips. It's big enough to fit a picnic in and cheap enough not to worry about spillages.

I vote for the Coach bag Decameron, it's beautiful.

MarshaBrady Tue 05-Mar-13 14:02:02

Nooo Shop! They had better not lose your £. Oh Shop!

shopafrolic Tue 05-Mar-13 14:04:21

Luckily I ordered with my credit card which I think means I'm protected?! They said they are still trying to work things out with investors but cannot trade while they do. She's going to ring back in half an hour. F********CK! Rant over.

Oh Shop no...how much did you spend with them?

MarshaBrady Tue 05-Mar-13 14:07:14

Ah yes that is better I think. When I accidentally paid for Goldsigns three times they said it would have been better if I had used a credit card.

Credit card insurance will cover that I am sure...

foxysocks Tue 05-Mar-13 14:08:32

fark, shop!! that's awful. for the poor staff and for you - i hope you can get the money back. did you pay on card? that should mean you are covered, right? same thing happened to me with some bedside tables, VISA were fab and sorted it all out for me pretty quickly.

i hope to goodness nothing goes wrong with my ash trainers now. erk.

foxysocks Tue 05-Mar-13 14:09:29

yes you are def protected if you use a CC. oh god, poor you (((((((shop)))))))) xx

QueenCadbury Tue 05-Mar-13 14:10:31

Oh shop what a bugger. Hope you get your money or jackets.

foxy I've got a 21month old so that would be perfect!

Anni what size blue did you get?

foxysocks Tue 05-Mar-13 14:19:39

sorry the gigis aren't quite right for you, anni. do farfetch refund the delivery charge? if not you could try and sell them on, I was SO close to ordering them too I think lots of us liked them?

shopafrolic Tue 05-Mar-13 14:22:54

Right, they've called me back and my items are going to be sent today by registered post. Apparently the issue will be if i want to return anything as getting refunds could be an issue. So fingers crossed everything fits, otherwise I'll be trying to flog them to you guys instead! X

shopafrolic Tue 05-Mar-13 14:24:08

If anyone else has any returns / issues I would get onto them pronto! They're in the office for one week more. Ask for Ashley.

Annianni Tue 05-Mar-13 14:30:49

They are 8.5's Amber

It's free returns Foxy and i'll have to re-claim the taxes.
They worked out at £52 each (i think)
But I would have easily spent the £18 delivery charge on petrol to my local city, car parking etc if I'd gone to try them in person.

QueenCadbury Tue 05-Mar-13 14:36:04

This weeks grazia has 25% off jaeger. Online code GRZA2513.

carrie74 Tue 05-Mar-13 14:45:37

Oh shop what a nightmare about SP! Hope you're getting in under the wire.

Anni am hoping to pick up some Gigis when in Florida, thinking animal print as had pretendy ones last summer and wore them to death. But of course now want to check out the blue...

Foxy 5am [laughs hysterically]. I'm already kicking up a fuss about having to get to H'row for 6am for our flights! No way could I get up early to put myself through the torture of a run!

Marsha I grew up in Miami (well we moved when I was 10, but my brother stayed - he's moved to Texas now though - bleugh), so I try to go back as often as possible. Seems since having the children, we've settled into a bit of an Easter routine. grin Can't wait for some snow crab claws....
