Me: "Hello, please could I have the dress on the mannequin in the window?"
Charity shop Assistant (sizing me up in my huge baggy jumper and unflattering raincoat): "What? For you?"
Me (smiling through gritted teeth): "Yes please".
Charity Shop Assistant slopes off to de-robe the dummy. Returns. "Do you want to try it on?"
Me (still with gritted teeth): "No thanks, it'll be fine".
Charity Shop Assistant (looking me up and down again): "Are you sure?"
Me (no longer smiling): "Positive".
Charity Shop Assistant: " Well, you can return it for a refund within a week if it doesn't fit".
I hand over my £8, go home, try it on, admire my new sparkly brocade 60's style mini dress that fits perfectly.
In yer face grumpy lady. I'm tempted to put it on and slink in there just to prove it to her.
Just goes to show, you can get high-end style snooty sales assistants for a fraction of the price if you shop around!
Anyway, what do you think of my Christmas Day dress? I'm thinking black leggings, ankle boots and hair up?
Magpie Monday will be taking a break for the next fortnight, but will be back in the New Year. I'd like to thank you all so much for supporting Magpie Monday and sharing the pre-loved love. Wishing you and all your families a very happy Christmas. x
