(Wearing: Versace from TK Maxx bomber jacket, Markus Lupfer ‘Saint’ t-shirt, Lanvin for H&M skirt, Ann Demeulemeester boots)
Can you believe the last two photo’s are iphone photo’s! My friend took them as I didn’t have my DSLR and the batteries ran out of my little point-and-click after the first shot. I can’t get over how good they are since my Blackberry only gives little fuzzy things. I have heard a lot of people debate the need of even having a DSLR when they have an iphone, I don’t think they are that good but definitely a great alternative to carrying around a separate pocket camera.
Any way here I am wearing for the first time my Markus Lupfer t-shirt with the crazy story and Lanvin H&M skirt both of which I’ve had for ages but for some reason they haven’t seen the light of day. I don’t know why but sometimes I will buy something and have it hanging in my closet for a while before I wear it. Not to be confused with the sad ‘regret buys’ that end up in the charity shop, more like they are just waiting for the right time. I don’t know I am so weird with clothes! I also pulled out my Ann D boots,which I wore to death in the summer I first started this blog, then put them away for a bit and gave them a rest! Sometimes I will wear something like mad then chuck it on eBay and buy something new. I did debate it with these but I tried them on and was like ‘wow I freaking love you’, I had just forgotten how much! I topped it all off with this crazy silver bomber jacket which is Versace, I picked it up in the High Street Kensington branch of TK Maxx when I was down in London, it is such a good store. I really enjoy walking around the area on a sunny day. Since the jacket is perforated leather you need it to be fairly warm but not boiling to wear it so I’ve been waiting for some decent weather to bust it out.
Do you have any strange wardrobe habits, are you a hoarder?
Rather a long time ago, in fact around this time about a year ago I bought a fabulous Markus Lupfer t-shirt embellished with the word ‘Wild’ in chiffon across the front. You might remember me showing you at the time. Well as things happen I had put the t-shirt away in my wardrobe and had not gotten around to wearing it, I know shameful. So I decided I had better stop saving it for a ‘special occasion’ that was never going to happen and pulled it on for an unexciting venture to the Supermarket. I didn’t even get to take an outfit photo for you it was that uneventful.
After wearing it I gently hand washed as per the instructions only, to my horror, to see the colour start running from the black trim!! I let it dry and double check the directions, nope I did follow them exactly so I tried washing it again. Nope the colour had ran and was not retreating. As I had bought it so long ago I didn’t have the receipt and I knew Selfridges would need it to prove that was where I bought it, as ML have quite a few stockists. So I thought I would contact ML directly, I sent off an email explaining what had happened and to be honest expected to be fobbed off or have my email go unreplied to at all. Not that I expected bad customer service from ML solely because I had bought it so long ago.
To my surprise I recieved an email back that very day, explaining that a faulty batch of non-colourfast t-shirts had been sent to Selfridges. Once the problem was realised they were all recalled and replaced, I must have gotten a faulty one before the recall. They didn’t have any of my exact t-shirt left but offered me a choice of their latest range. My new t-shirt was sent out right away and I received it the next day.
So I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Emma at Markus Lupfer for helping me and that Markus Lupfer is a brand that really cares about its customers – something which is rare these days! I can’t wait to wear my ‘Saintly’ new tee and I will remain a fan of the brand for many years to come.
