Sheer Shirts and Broken Teeth

camelsheershirtblack&goldnecklacechunkynecklace
This is actually yesterdays outfit and the shirt is the half of my order Ark actually got right. I'm a little bit annoyed with them tbh as they were obviously aware that they'd ran out of the playsuit I ordered as they've marked the invoice, but instead of giving me a refund or asking what I'd like as a replacement they took it upon themselves to send me an ugly black number that looks NOTHING like my original choice. It's ridiculously short/highwaisted and shows off an unflattering camel toe so that it's being returned asap.
I do however like this shirt, although I'm unsure if my shoulder length barnet can pull it off? I feel a little butch in it hence the awkward snaps but it's so comfy and versatile so it's going to be a keeper. And I am rather in love with this necklace, I was contacted by a lovely lady named Susan from Accessories Direct who gave me the choice of some gorgeous jewellery to review, being a sucker for anything chunky I chose this straight away, I really like the black and gold together and if I listen to Sam Sparrow I can pretend he's singing at me. This is by a designer named Kate Benjamin so if you like what you see have a looky, her pieces are pricier than what I might normally go for (this necklace retails at £48.00) but from the weight and feel of it I can tell it's going to be a trooper and last a long time!

I spent the majority of my Friday off work in Asda due to an unfortunate incident with one of their cereals. Whilst Tom was innocently munching away on some Choco Flakes he caught his tooth on some sort of mini stone/seed hidden within it and has broken his front tooth. Literally half of it has just crumbled off. They had an "If you're not fully satisfied" number on the back and obviously he wasn't that satisfied so gave it a ring, apparently it's now under investigation but I'm hoping they offer some sort of compensation, we're both quite passive when it comes to complaints but it's going to cost £200 to get his tooth fixed so I think it's only fair that they foot some of the bill? Or do you reckon we're being a bit cheeky?
So, happy to see the back of Friday 13th, we're going to spend tonight (which is Saturday - I'm scheduling!) in front of the tv eating cream egg icecream, watching take me out, and enjoying some 3D goodness.

  6. Really?! They just decided to send a random replacement?! Ark do not seem like a good company to buy from! Glad I restrained from buying from their sale, would be a nightmare sending stuff back etc.

    Eeeekk on the broken tooth. That's unacceptable and their negligence had caused it. They should totally foot the bill!

    On a brighter note, you're looking lovely in the outfit shots :) x

  7. Well it's only fair that they gave you some compensation about it! Seeing a dentist is one of my worst nightmares, ouch...

  16. That necklace looks gorgeous, love it with the plain shirt. That cereal incident sounds terrible, they should defo foot some of the bill, dentists are bloody expensive theses days.. xx

  17. I should have written the rules on my blog post! But basically you just have to thank the person who nominated you, write 7 facts about yourself and them nominate others to do the same :) xx

  18. That's such a lovely shirt :) I think it looks great on you!
    I was contacted by Susan too but I had to choose three bags so I'll see which one turns up.
    I hope you get something back from Asda. When I was 7 I burnt the whole of my right thigh in their cafe because the hot chocolate was boiling and legally they're supposed to serve it at less than 100 degrees (at about 70 or something I think?) and they served it in a flimsy polystyrene cup AND the tables were wobbly. I had have my dressings changed at the hospital every day for 2 weeks and all we got was a refund from the cafe and I got a cuddly dog. Stupid Asda.

  19. They will probably pay the dentist bill and give you like a £10 voucher or something lol! You will more than likely have to pay for the dentist then get a receipt that they will reimburse! But no, your deffo not being cheeky! Anyways.. LOVE this outfit on you, the necklace is gorgeous and your hair looks particularly lovely today :)

  20. Such a pretty shirt, I love the colour too. A similar thing has happened to me with cereal before too! My tooth didn't break thankfully, but it did damage it. You should definitely complain, maybe send a letter to trading standards about it too?

  22. Oddly enough I cracked a tooth on cereal but it was a very back tooth hehe so it was odd but it did happen. I didn't even think about contacting the cereal company but it's been taken care of now hehe

  23. You should definitely get some form of compensation! That's horrible, my biggest fear is chipping a tooth (stupid fear i know!)
    Love your outfit, the chunky jewelry is the best :)

  24. Wow, I definietly think Asda should be footing the WHOLE bill and even give you some form of compensation! I can assure you that you're 100% not over-reacting. As someone who deals with complaints/compensation in my job, make sure you push for as much as you can within reason. Don't just ask them to foot some of the bill - ask for the whole bill AND compensation at first!

    Sorry, rant over! I just can't believe it broke his tooth! And his front tooth at that!

    Anyway. Ahem. Your shirt looks great on you! I wish I could get away with buttoning things all the way up. xx

  25. Your shirt and necklace look lovely. Hope Asda do foot the bill because that's horrible! xx

  26. What a perfect way to spend Friday night. Was last friday really the 13th? Totally forgot about it.

    Nice necklace. Very cute.

  27. Haha no way, I would have called the customer complaints number as well. They broke his tooth! Once I found a bit of plastic in a croissant I was eating at a cafe, and was like WHAT THIS ISN'T HAM so I took it back to the lady and got free food and coffee. SCORE.

  28. You should definitely get more than £200 because they chipped his tooth - but they might be a bugger about proof!

  29. ASDA really should give you compensation, that is awful!
    The shirt is lovely. Such a shame they messed your order up. xx

  30. Love the necklace (a lot!) and Sam Sparrow!

    Y'know, ASDA choco flakes always seem to have hard bits in them, as do Special K I've noticed.

    ASDA should definitely compensate you. I once had a bounty and found a big coconut hair in it and Mars sent me £25 worth of vouchers because I said I almost choked on it! I sent them the hair taped to the letter!!
    Man, was I sick of chocolate though have you ever seen £25 of chocolate, it is a sight to behold!! :D xx

  32. That shirt is lovely, definitely doesn't make you look butch! That's so cheeky of them to swap your playsuit for another one though, I would have been so annoyed.
    I agree with everyone else, Asda should definitely be giving you some kind of compensation! Hope you manage to get it sorted.

  34. Love the shirt and necklace, can't believe they just sent you a random playsuit though, they should've at least emailed you to let you know that it was out of stock and given you a choice! You are definitely not being cheeky complaining to Asda, if it wasn't for their cereal he wouldn't be needing to be spending £200 getting his tooth fix, I would be mad if they didn't pay the whole amount! :) xx

  35. Complaining is definitely not wrong in this case! Standing up for yourself is thebest thing to do :) Absoloutely love this look and especially the shirt! And thanks for your sweet comment on my blog, but i do think your hair colour i awesome!

    I'm following :) xx

  36. Yeah, you definitely deserve the compensation there. Damage to the tooth can be rough stuff, especially if it's strong enough to wreck one tooth with just one bite. I hope you have the stone in question as evidence.

    All that aside, nice shirt. It's simple but nice, and it makes the necklace quite noticeable.

  37. I think you just really deserve to get some compensation there. I mean we’re talking about teeth here and considering the fact that it’s the front ones. Well, I would really freak out if my front teeth broke. It will really affect my smile and how I look, so it’s really important to me.
