55 days to go:Chunky Necklace




My whole outfit today was dictated by this chunky necklace.
It is the second one I got from Dorothy Perkins - the first one snapped and the beads went into every nook and cranny of my bedroom.
Luckily I found enough to prove it was this necklace (as I had lost the receipt) and the kind sales assistant replaced it without any fuss.
Good service makes such a difference.
There are some shops I will go into time and again because I know the staff are pleasant and helpful but not too intrusive.
And there are others where I feel like an unwelcome visitor and end up reluctant to part with my hard-earned cash.
This blouse is new but it comes thanks to some eBay cash.
I sold my Biba blouse.
Although it was a great piece I felt it didn't do anything for me.
And to return to my original theme of necklaces - if, like me you are cutting down on spending then check out Boutique Girl's latest giveaway here.
Have a great Wednesday.

I wore..
Shoes - Clarks
Jeans - Joe Brown
Shirt and Necklace - Dorothy Perkins
Cardi - Primark

I've been doing a little ebay selling of my own. I have a bunch of other stuff to list.... slowly but surely wins the race, right?

Very fun necklace, and I totally agree, how a shop handles a problem says far, far more to me than how they act when they're selling you the thing in the first place. I've had good returns experiences at M&S, Boden, and Coldwater Creek.
