Breton Stripes.

Zara : Breton top, H&M : Leather Jacket, New look : Jeans, Topshop : Necklace

Today has been another busy one, would you believe RubyRaeLove received 108 orders between 7am – 4pm i am pretty shocked lots of packing and sorting. I do love making my business cards and making all the packaging pretty, to arty for my own good, i could spend millions on stationary. Thank you for your support.

I had a lovely morning spent shopping with my brothers. I didn’t buy a lot, a few trinkets and a new pair of skinny black jeans. I am going for afternoon tea at harrods tomorrow ( i know what you are thinking she better brush her hair ha!) so i was on the hunt for the perfect top to go with my skinny jeans… but could i find anything no! I did find a lovely dress/top thing in (or as my brother called it a boob tube… basically a strapless dress) New Look which was marked at £5 but the sales assistant blindly refused to sell it to me at that price demanding it must of been price wrong, then accused me of switching tags….so i told her to leave it, it was lovely…unfortunately she wasn’t . So i spent the rest of the evening trying to find something remotely posh & comfortable in my wardrobe I am yet to find the perfect combination. In the ensuing boredom of sorting my wardrobe out i decided to snap an outfit post of what i wore today, pretty simple and comfy. I just love this Faux leather jacket i picked up in H&M the other day for £29.99, it was a replacement for my beloved faux leather primark jacket which i had for about six years. 

I have been thinking about getting the ole’ hair chopped, i really want it short at the back and long at the front, kind of a long victoria beckham bob, alot longer though, i am terrified of the hairdressers so we will see.

*( I am not normally horrible about people that work in shops i use to work in retail, i know how horrible customers can be, the lady accused me of switching tags so i could get it cheaper how rude?!)

    Ella we all know you would never do anything like that. I tell ya what annoy'd me last year in Accessorizes sale I found these earrings I loved and they had a sale sticker on them and went to the desk to buy them and they said they weren't in the sale. So I thought they would put them back in the right place after that. I come back another day and they still put them back in the sale for some other poor sod to pick up and find they weren't in the sale. Believe me there are lot of crap sales assistants in this world.

    Congratulations on the number of sales you have got today, I wish I could get that many.

    The necklace is amazing, I wish I had the confidence to pull off something like that. Wonderful photos again.

    Well done with your sales, that's amazing! How rude of the girl, when that happens in our shop we ask the customer to politely take us to where they find the item and if it was priced wrong we kindly explain about the error. How amazing about Harrods, have a nice time, it's so amazingly posh…well I went when I was 10 and I thought the queen lived there haha xxx

    that top looks lovely next to your hair! lovely blog :).x

    I love your top and necklace 🙂
    I work in retail, and I know things get messy over sale, and mistakes can be made, but legally she was obliged to sell you the top for £5 if that was the marked price on it, regardless of whether it was correct or not. I can't believe she accused of switching the tags, how rude! Xx

    I love the butterfly poster you have so pretty!
    I use to have a hair cut similar to what you described – I cut it myself!

    Well done on all of your sales, that is fantastic! How rude of the shop assistant, glad you left it! x

    WOW! 108 orders?? crikey that's a lot – congratulations! Good luck with the packaging! And that's really annoying about the silly sales assistant… I worked in retail for a little bit as well and even though you can get some horrible customers I think its not that hard to just be nice to people – the rest of us manage it! Anyhoo tiny rant over, hope you're having a lovely london morning! x Rachel

    ps. your blog just gets better and better everyday!

    I can't bear rude shop workers! I know it's sometimes an effort to be polite, but it's part of the job!
    You look very sweet in your Breton top, can't beat a good striped top!! I love your butterfly poster too.
    Sounds like your shop is going really well 🙂
