We Need To Start Gluing Things To You

corgis7 

So let's have a chat about how incredibly awful at life I have been lately because if there is an award for losing everything all the time - I win. Last weekend, my card must have slipped out of my wallet before I met up with Rachel and Jessica, and someone went on a small spending spree at gas stations in a span of 2 hours with my credit card. Then this weekend I suppose I left my cell phone sitting atop the post office machine, went and took these photos, and when I got in my car 20 minutes later, realized I had no cell phone. Whoever has it has no intention of giving it back. I really lose hope in people sometimes. I'm sure all of you would return a lost item and that the people who took my card and phone aren't reading my blog. If you are those people....we aren't friends.

Also, I bought a new bag while shopping in Maryland that I love. I wish I hadn't ended up needing to buy a new cell phone the next day, but life happens, and this purse is darn cute. And it has a fox on it. Everything with animals on it, I swear. Which brings up the tee. I've had it for a year and it has never been on the blog? Shame on me. Everything with corgis on it.

  2. I'm sorry to hear that you lost your card and phone! It sucks that someone took it and won't give it back. I assure you that I definitely would try to find the owner if I found someone's phone! Some people are lame, but try to remember to keep some faith because there are people like us who are indeed not lame. :)
    The color of that purse is gorgeous, and your Corgi top is adorable! Another great outfit. :)

  3. OH poor thing! I totally can understand the feeling of losing things and having things taken from you!

    Shame on those who have no good intentions!

    I once lost my WALLET somehow while shopping...it was a horrible feeling. I literally realized this loss within minutes. I JUST bought something, walked out of the store holding my wallet, answered a phone call on my cell, and in the midst of trying to hold the phone and trying to tuck the wallet back into my purse, it must have fallen out. And on the streets of Downtown SF...I may have well as given it away. This took all of a few minutes between that incident and retracing my steps. I WAS HEARTBROKEN.

    The wallet contents was one thing but the wallet itself held sentimental value. It was my mother's (and she had passed away). SO, needless to say, I had my share of heartbreak and blame.

    I also had never lost anything of that level of importance before! I've had a wallet STOLEN from me in middle school...but could never prove the girl I suspected actually stole it. But, I've never just lost my wallet like that.

    So...this long comment ends on a good note. Literally, a year later, someone called me, said they found my wallet. I had left several phone numbers in there...and one person she called said "YES I know her and here's her contact #..." The wallet was mailed back to me with EVERYTHING inside EXCEPT for my driver's license...I even re-connected with my friend...who was from high school and we had lost touch.

    So I do still think about how annoying that incident was...and how someone out there is using my driver's license for no good...but, I have my sentimental wallet back.

    Who knows...

  13. Ugh. What a horrible week! I know exactly how you feel - I would always try to return belongings to people.

    Last year, the week before Christmas, someone stole my wallet as I went to the post office to send some Christmas cards after work. Wallet theft before Christmas is not that uncommon, but ugh.

    Aside from the fact it was designer (and I'm not usually one to own designer unless it's from a thrift store), it contained my UK driving permit (expensive to replace and I never did so I never got a UK license before moving to the US), my bus card (expensive to replace), my bank cards and cash in it.

    I even had to phone my mum to drive and pick me up as I had no way to get home, and I didn't get replacement bank cards until the day after Christmas. Luckily nobody had used them before I got them cancelled though - I'm SO sorry to hear that happened to you. Nightmare situation.

    Ugh, sorry about that rant. I forgot about that whole debacle and it makes me angry to think about people who do these things.

  20. That shirt is so cute! I have a Modcloth tee with a chihuahua on it, it's my fav :). I'm sorry you've had a hard time lately. Some people are just jerks. I couldn't imagine spending someone else's money or taking a cell phone that doesn't belong to me. Don't worry, things will pick up and the hubs will be back with you in just a few weeks <3

  33. I love the titles of your posts! LOL! And that purse is a beauty! You always have the best purses (and outfits)! It's a shame that people aren't honest, but whenever that happens to me, I tell myself that "they must have really needed it more than I did", and just try to be more careful next time. It's sad, but true. The law isn't there for honest people; it's there for dishonest\bad people, unfortunately. =( -Jess L

  36. That is really too bad about your phone and card. I'm sure you're so frustrated with the whole thing.

    About 4 months ago I dropped my wallet when getting out of the car while on my way to my hair appointment. Apparently some totally great guy found it, went around to all the stores in the little strip mall where it was found asking if I was there, then when he couldn't find me he hand delivered the wallet to my house and left it at my front door inside the screen door with a little note. The place where I lost my wallet and where I live is about a 35 minute drive. To think someone would go through all of that restored my faith in people. I wish you had been as lucky.

    Otherwise loving the cherry with the grey : )

  41. I'm amazed you sound as cheerful as you do losing your phone and credit card in one week! I'm so sorry that this happened to you, and I would totally be raging about it! I hope that you do get them back. Once I got my purse stolen and then someone anonymously posted me everything in it (except the purse and the money) but I got my ID, library cards and photos all back. So stranger things can happen.

    The bag looks so sleek and smart so at least you have a nice shiny thing to cheer you up! Thanks for you lovely comment on the wedding planning -I'd love to see some of your old sketches and planning stuff!

  44. That bag is too precious.

    And I've had those days... but luckily I am so obsessively paranoid about my iPhone that it's on my person at all times. Though when I used to be a night club photographer someone stole it off of me, and then I got to track it with find my iPhone and sic the cops on them! YAY!

  45. Ugh- I'm so sorry, you always hope that if you lose something whoever has it will be excited to return it to you. I had to buy my iphone back from thugs once and the screen was smashed. It makes it hard to keep having faith in people! Well, you look really cute and I think you have the best t-shirt collection ever. And I love how you always wear them in such a stylish/feminine way!

  46. oh my gosh what a terrible experience!! that really, really sucks. i really hope things do get better for you in the near future, the only time i've ever lost my phone in public was when I left it in a Chinese restaurant, and they gladly kept it behind the counter until we drove back (an hour later) to get it.
