Before I start today's OOTD post, I want to thank all of my blogger friends and readers who didn't hesitate to spend their valuable time to find things that I said I wanted in my posts or tweets. You know who you are. Big hugs and kisses to you all! It makes me teary eyed when I get tipped off for a sale on a popular item, or an ebay bargain, or offered to track things down for me. I feel so blessed, REALLY! And thank you for all the heart felt words when I am not feeling 100%.
Onto today's OOTD. Remember this slouchy pocket tee from F21 that I adore? Well, not for long. After one wash, the shirt shrank to half its size and I am afraid it won't even cover my belly button. So after tweeting about it and being the target of entertainment for a few minutes, I made up my mind to return it. Yes, we all know that F21's return policy is no return, exchange, or credit on items that are worn, washed, or tag cut off. My shirt was all that. But I consider it a defect. Since I had nothing to lose, and I really didn't know what to do with it if not trying to return it, I took my receipt, the tag that was cut off, and this shrunk shirt back to F21. The sweet SA in F21 told me that the return policy clearly said that this item was not meeting the criteria. I said I know, but look at it, it's ridiculous. After hesitating for a while, she said, "I'm really not supposed to do this, but I'll do this once for you. Go find something that is equal or more than $12.80 (the price for the T), and I'll do an exchange for you." I was so happy and thanked her immediately. She repeated twice that this was a one time deal and she won't do it for me again. I said I understand. So I found this cute stripey slouchy dress that cost me $2.10 more. I took it home. I made sure I washed it once before I post it so I can make my recommendations. It didn't shrink this time. :)
F21 Slouchy T-shirt dress (size S/P)
Ann Taylor belt
Amrita Singh necklace
Ann Klein purse
The dress comes with a cheapy brown braided belt. I replaced it with a colorful Ann Taylor leather skinny. I really like the slouchy look of the dress and the pockets on the side are just adorable. AND, it doesn't shrink!
Thank you for reading, and don't forget to sign up for the up coming PFC #9. Have a great week!
