Imagine the excitement when I woke up a couple of weeks ago to an email saying that one of my favourite online retailers, Lindybop was having a flash sale – one problem, I’d lost my bank card, a replacement card was on order but with it being a bank holiday weekend it had taken longer than usual for my new card to arrive.
I found four dresses I really liked and added them to my shopping basket ready for when my new card arrived, I waited for what felt like forever, and then the day came that my new shiny piece of plastic arrived in the mail, I excitedly went online ready to complete my purchase only to find out two of the dresses were no longer available in a size 8, I bought the other two that were still available and went off to work, but no matter how hard I tried to convince myself that two dresses are better than none I couldn’t seem to shake the feeling of discontent.
I got as far as my first break and went back online and managed to find two more dresses, one in the sale and one new stock and after purchasing both of those I managed to get through the rest of the day feeling less traumatized.
Moral of the story, take better care of your bank card!
So far, I’ll admit I’ve only actually worn one of the dresses, to my friend’s anniversary celebrations at Hockwold Hall in Norfolk this weekend but I’m sure I’ll find the perfect occasions to wear the rest soon!
