You know those moments when you see something that has your name on it and all you can think about is…… I need it, I want it, it’s mine!! Well that happened to me awhile ago and today I purchased it and not only that, I had the best service experience doing so, double win!! And it all happened thanks to the magic of Facebook and blogging. Two activities I’m rather fond of.
So I was reading this fab blog post by my bloggy mate Shannon from Forty Up. (She has a new website, it’s so pretty, you must check it out). She was interviewing a popular lady named Melissa, who you may know as Little Miss Bali. There’s some gorgeous pictures of Melissa’s home, cute little dog Taco, a great interview getting to know her a little more, but it was her dress, her gorgeous dress….. That had me at hello! I needed it! I just had to have it! So as soon as I read it was from Bali based label Mister Zimi, I was on the web page hunting for it a few seconds later.
After finding the dress online, I was heartbroken to discover my size wasn’t in stock. I emailed to see if there was any chance of another reorder of sizes etc. and sadly that was the last of that collection. Never mind, it just wasn’t meant to be (sob!) Months later Mister Zimi held a sale and the same dress appeared on the Forty Up Facebook page. It reminded me again of the dress I had fallen in love with, so hoping for a miracle I checked the available sizes and again my size was sold out. BUT!!!! The wonderful people at Mister Zimi, must of read Shan’s post and mentioned more sizes were available and to email them!!!
Before I knew it, a lovely lady named Bianca from their Melbourne store, rang me to confirm Breeanna had arranged for my size to be put aside and where would I like this fabulous dress sent to?!! We had such a good laugh on the phone I was just blown away with the awesome service. The power of Facebook has won me over again. So thanks to the wonderful ladies at Mister Zimi and thanks to Shannon and Little Miss Bali herself for the discovery of a gorgeous new dress and label to follow. Fingers crossed it fits now!! Wouldn’t that be classic after all that!!
