So I have a 25 black tie birthday party that I will be attending next week.
Almost 3 weeks ago I ordered a dress for said party and the dress didn’t look like it was going to make it here in time. I was already emailing the seller to arrange negotiations as per a refund.
I was so convinced that it would not arrive in time that I ordered a replacement gown because I didn’t want to be without an outfit altogether.
Almost every day I would check the Royal Mail tracker and my parcel would not have made any progress.
Today, I finished all my work and decided to check the status of the replacement dress.. Only to find that it had been delivered.. What?! Didn’t I only order it yesterday? I was so confused. I ran down to the post room to pick up my dress. It wasn’t there. I looked around and checked on the computers. It had been delivered to the wrong building on campus. I then went on a dress hunt.
I eventually got to the post room in the other building and found my parcel in the post bin to be returned back to my building tomorrow. Proud of myself, I picked up my parcel and headed home.
I got into the lift in my apartment building and looked at the package. It didn’t have the same tracking number as the one I just ordered.. It had the number of the original order.
I got into my apartment and opened the package. It was the original dress. Oh. Now I had two. Where was the other dress I thought?! Then I realised there must have been two in the post bin and not one.
I ran back to work and sure enough the other dress was in the bin waiting to back to my building tomorrow. I got myself back home and tried on both dresses. I fell in love with the first one all over again. The second one will be returned tomorrow.. I did like it.. But thankfully I don’t need it!
It’s beautiful.. I just need to figure out how I’m going to wear my hair..
So excited that it finally came! 🙂
