these outfit photos make me cross..this is what i put on to go over to a friend's house on sunday, and accompany her to chester in order to find her an outfit for her upcoming weekend..
i found this dress a few weeks ago in the monsoon sale for £18 which i decided was a bargain, and snapped it up then and there..i tried it on when i got home and decided i really liked it, prefect length with a hankerchief hemline, a lovely deep blue colour, and a great fit..so i put it onto a hanger to wait for an opportune moment to wear it..
i put it on on sunday morning, and within an hour or so, the zip gave up, and wouldn't zip up or down without the teeth coming apart - so frustrating, but luckily i was wearing a cardigan so managed to put up with it until i got home..
obviously, what with the monsoon sale items being under a 7day return policy, i was a little worried about taking it back - whilst i am aware that legally i have the right to return a faulty item with my proof of purchase, it would seem that the majority of retail workers do not know this (i'm not blaming them, or having a go at anyone, just stating a fact i have been made aware of)..so when i tried to take it back to my local store i was told there was no way i could be able to return it due to the 7 day period being lapsed..as there was no manager available to speak to, and i was in a rush, i left it and later on called the monsoon customer services number from the website - they were quite unhelpful really..i think the operator thought i was trying to track another dress down to be able to exchange it, which i wasn't, and when she realised what i was trying to ask about, i was advised to try the store again and speak to the manager..
i did that today, and managed to speak to someone who knew that i was able to return a faulty item, and since there were no more of this dress in the sale in my size, i was able to return it for a refund..i will be looking out for this again, as i really was pleased with the fit etc, and will just make sure that i check the zip in future, i don't know why i don't anyway, i do with the lower end high street stores..
