I was innocently browsing hundreds of beautiful dresses in House of Fraser recently when this sparkly fellow caught my eye. It was love at first sight despite the fact I have a few rather similar dresses. After a quick consultation with my best friend who assured me I could never have too many sparkly dresses, I will love it just as much as the rest and it will have plenty of appearances out of the wardrobe- I was convinced I could not leave without it and equally convinced I really should get rid of Sarah and her encouragement.
The price... £18.00 reduced from £45.00. I then remembered I had a £20.00 voucher as I had signed up for a store card previously. Naughty Naughty- I am just too nice to say no. A free dress, yes please. I skipped to the till and handed over my voucher and store card to the bored swishy looking shop assistant.
"Sorry you cannot use this voucher"
"It is for Debenhams"
Then I remember that yes I actually got a Debenhams store card, and I became a dumbass. I also felt guilty refusing to open a House of Fraser store card when she clearly knew I had a Debenhams one so guess what? I opened one.
Please tell me you have tried to pay with a voucher in the wrong shop before? But on the plus side, look at my new friend. Who I cannot look at without grinning as this is not any sparkly dress, it is a sparkly dress with a story.
