Hi Frugal. Could do with some fiscally responsible shopping. Not so much cutting down as my wardrobe is quite pared down at the moment but making intelligent purchases that actually go with things I already have.
Really love the Prada bag Decameron. Coach one is gorgeous but think the Prada is beautiful.
Good eBay sales sleep. Really must get round to getting started with eBay.
What a nightmare about SP shop. Have my fingers crossed that your orders are perfect.
Lovely Gap buys Anni.
Just had this Zara parka delivered. Wanted something for trips to park etc with the better weather until I get the chance to actually get the chance to go to the shops and find something I love. Not too sure about it. Bit of a departure from my usual style but might keep me going for the moment.
oh marsha that's awful. hopefully there is something they can do. my goat refund happened pretty quickly i think, might just go and recheck it now
ebay is def worth it mcnally - selling has bought me a pair of goldsigns, a pair of j brands and some ash trainers so far this year. all three are looking like staples for the coming years. reinvesting wisely rocks.
Oh Marsha not good! I didn't want. Two jackets, was planning on choosing. Should probably have told them not to ship but I don't believe I would have been refunded..... So hope they fit! I feel so sorry for the women on the phone. They sound devastated! Hope it gets sorted.
Thanks Shop, I feel ok as not huge in the grand scheme of things. But that sinking feeling when you realise an Internet order has gone wrong is rubbish!
I was freaking out a bit as dh paid (I havd my own SE account) and knew he'd not be happy as thinks I ahem like shopping too much. But I sounded really panicked and stressed so he was quite nice and tried to cheer me up. Blasted white skinnies have been the trickiest of all things to get that's for sure!
Marsha there's some sort of cover for debit cards I think. Google your bank and 'charge back' there's something floating round in my head about the bank giving you the money back as you haven't got the goods. Not sure if there's a min/max amount though. But worth checking.
Decameron I was looking at that bag last week and loved it. I do love coach as well though just the prada prob edges it here.
Charm bracelet - there was some arsey thread a few days ago slating pandora wearers in aibu. Was one of those miserable kind of threads. I wear charm bracelets all the time. I have my Tiffanys one, also from Swarovski and I also have the Thomas sabo charm watch. I couldn't be bothered to post so read and run.
I have no problem with charm bracelets, just not my thing. Personally not keen on Pandora ones, but no issue with others loving them. Each to their own. I have my Grandmother's rose gold charm bracelet (but no charms) which I wear as the chain is sturdy and I love rose gold. I did have some Sabo bracelets and charms but I'm in the process of selling them on EBay. A cobbler cutting through Tiffany jewellery sounds terrifying to me!
I joined in this thread and then was promptly whisked off to glamorous Belgium for a work trip. I have decided that I need a new watch. I have a birthday coming up luckily! I already have a rather chunky Breitling and I want something different and wearable for both work and play. I tried rose gold out and it doesn't look right on me. So I am thinking of a steel bracelet or leather bracelet. I rather like the Hermes Cape Cod watch but wouldn't wear that every day, so perhaps this by Christopher Ward (who I have never heard of before: any good?) www.christopherward.co.uk/women/modern-classic/emily/s21-dec-swt-xl.html Do brown leather watch bracelets get horribly stained by hand cream etc? Also quite like this one: www.christopherward.co.uk/sale/n22-chr-sws.html Any thoughts?
