Happy Friday, loves!
Last night, I popped over to our local mall (I live in Bakersfield, California- so not exactly a high fashion metropolis or anything) and had a few interesting shopping experiences. So interesting, in fact, that they spawned this TLDR post :). First, my friend and I went into Lane Bryant because we each had their save $25 on $75 (etc.) coupons. Now, every time I've gone into LB lately, I am less and less happy each time. This time, I was so upset, I wrote an email to the company. ( Click to read my little email to them.Collapse )
After my frustrating LB experience, we went over to Torrid because I had received in both the mail and my email the coupon they're doing for $30 off of $100. Once in the store, though, I realized I had left the physical coupon in my car- across the mall- and it was pouring rain. I asked the manager if I could just bring the email coupon (and code) up on my email on my Blackberry and she said absolutely not, I had to go get the coupon out of my car or they couldn't honor the discount. While looking at the email on my phone, I noticed it said that online is having free shipping now, so I'm just going to buy the stuff online this weekend. Still, Boo-urns, as Smithers would say.
At this point, I'm frustrated and empty-handed, about to go home. When almost to my car, I see that where there was once a giant department store is now a giant Forever 21 (literally department store sized). I popped in, thinking a store that giant might just have Faith 21 finally and. . . they did!
Let me tell you, their Faith 21 section alone was larger than our Lane Bryant and Torrid (more organized, too)! Tons and tons and tons of stuff. I ended up getting a tank and two minis, but I'll definitely be back! Oh, and the staff? WONDERFUL! I saw the mannis in the plus section on had on awesome leggings and tights, so I mentioned it to the check out girl, "Are those just the straight sized leggings on the plus sized mannequins?" To which she replied, "Oh, no! If it's on the plus manni it's plus. You didn't see them? We have the CUTEST leopard ones, let me show you! You have to get them!" So sweet and helpful.( Click the cut to see what I got (and quick reviews)!Collapse )
Ok, that's all. Just thought I'd share my little fat shopping experience last night!
PS: I have some amazing, heeled, slouchy but still structured boots that I got at Kmart for $15 that fit mid calf. Just a heads up for another store to give a shot on our never ending fat boot quest!
