Before I can show you, I must give you a little background and credit to my blog friend at Forty Not Out. What would a girl trying to create herself in all areas of life do without her friends and new blog friends, especially when she is trying to (re)discover her fashion style?
Monday June 21, started off like most days that is until I popped over for a visit to Forty Not Out. There I discovered Net-A-Porter was having an end of season sale! I was familiar with the site – even browsed a few times, but had never bought. Today, that was about to change – I just didn’t know it yet.
So after being excited for FNO– having scored a pair of boyfriend jeans she had been holding her breathe for and salivating through the great inspiring fashion images, FNO offers up daily ( A must visit site if you need inspiration to building your wardrobe or are crazy about all things fashion FNO's blog click here)– off I dashed to see what other wonderful tempting treats they were offering. As I clicked through – I came upon a Pucci scarf – they were offering in blue or pink – the moment I saw it, I knew this time I would be losing my "just looking" customer status! As I’m clicking through the sales process, I clicked something and my computer clicked off the page. What had just happened? I called customer service to see if they could help me – the girl said that it didn’t look like the transaction had gone through – but the pink scarf was no longer available (if it had gone through I would have been the proud owner of the last pink one in stock). What??? It had to be there I entered my credit card number, I had pressed ok – before the screen disappeared! Then another customer service person thought to look up the transaction by “my name” instead of my email address… I waited for what seemed like an eternity…. “It looks like your email address was miss-entered” she said as she came back on the phone. My order had gone through after all!!! The pink scarf was mine!!! and according to them I had scored the "Last Pink One".
Well a girl has to celebrate! So, after the good news I went back to clicking through the site and came across every big girl’s dream toy. Barbie, but not just any Barbie – this was a Christian Louboutin Barbie, complete with 4 interchangeable pairs of shoes, shoe boxes and shoe bags!!!
Even Dolce was impressed with the packaging and wrapping! I haven't taken Barbie and her shoes out to play yet, after all I'm a Big Girl now ... she is going to go on my shoe shelve, where she will reign as Princess of HHL ShoeLand.
