Crisis Averted

image via weheartit

Sorry I’ve been M.I.A. these past few days. I’ve had an extremely busy and somewhat stressful week with work and a couple of important auditions, one which had me watching numerous episodes of “Intervention” and youtubing/researching “people on drugs” in the little time I had to prepare. Don't do it, it's depressing.

I also had to deal with an itty bitty Fashion Crisis. I had ordered this pink dress from asos a couple of weeks ago to wear to an important fashion event tonight, I was pee-my-pants excited to wear it. My shipment was supposed to be here last Friday but it hasn’t arrived yet and the customer care center at asos tells me it probably won’t arrive for another six days or so due to postal delays. Grrrrr. So I had to go shopping for a new dress on Wednesday because when I looked in my closet of course I had nothing to wear. Doesn’t this always happen to us girls? We have a full closet (sometimes two of them! yup, that's me) yet we have nothing to wear when really we're just tired/bored of our wardrobe and don’t want to wear what we already have! Well, that was the situation I found myself in. After a trip to the mall and five stores later I finally found a lovely and suitable-and bright pink!- dress at Zara that was reasonably priced so I bought it. Then when I got home I realized I didn't have any accessories to wear with it!!! Dang! So I went back to the same damn mall the next day and picked out a necklace and earrings and now I think I'm set. Crisis averted. But I really wanted to wear that pink asos dress! Ah well...

I hope you all enjoy your weekend! I know I’ll enjoy mine : ) I'll be back on Monday with a more substantial post!

Oyy...why does ASOS take forever to ship!! I got what I ordered from them really fast though, so weird :/
At least your crisis was averted! :D

UGH I hate that. I'm kind of in the same boat. I ordered a few things from Nasty Gal way back last week thinking they would be here in time for me to pack them to AZ. They STILL aren't here (even though stuff I ordered THIS Sunday from other places came yesterday) and I leave tomorrow. Ugh.

Glad you got something to work though!

Good luck on your auditions. I still have to go back and watch the video you posted of you in action. I WISH my home wi-fi didn't suck crazy bad.

Awww such a bummer about the dress. And PS, I 100% understand the feeling of "not having anything to wear" ha ha ha! Been there!

Moniek said...

That's a real bummer.. Hate it when you don't get your order!

Kavery said...

Oh that's awful. Specially when you're waiting for dress to arrive. I was really happy with ASOS and found the quality of their stuff good.

Marie a la Mode said...

Kavery: The first time I purchased something from asos I was really impressed with their delivery, my package arrived exactly when they said it would and was hoping that would be the case with this dress but unfortunately it wasn't : (
