knits and bows

(knit: thrifted, jeans: dotti, flats: rubi, bag: forever new, necklace: wholesale dress)

Today Scott and I started packing our suitcases for our holiday to Greece & Malta and this is what I wore! Excitement! We also went to our local shopping mall, for some last-minute buys, a car wash and a hair cut. We leave this Friday night, and there is still so much to organise and do before we go.

I still havent had the chance to edit all the photos and video footage from our Christmas in July party..... but its definatley on my to-do list for this week and I will definatley post about it before we leave for our holiday.

The necklace I am wearing I bough recently from this Asian wholesale website which I would not recommend at all! They are called wholesale-dress and sell a variety of different clothing and accessories. This is the second time I've shopped from them and it will also be the last. The first time, I was reasonably happy with the quality of the items I bought, the prices are dirt cheap so I couldn't really complain, they havent fallen appart and I still wear those pieces from time to time (I had bought three dresses). More recently I purchased another few dresses and this necklace.... I waited for what seemed like forever for my items - Long story short, nothing arrived, they said they sent it and it came back so I lost postage money and then replaced the order minus a few items. They were very unprofessional during our communications, lacking basic customer service skills. On a brighter note, the items I did receive fit me perfectly and I love my new bow necklace!

    me and my friend ordered from them so many times with so many problems! we just resorted to speaking to them in very basic english that even non-english speakers could understand. that seemed to work :P
