I bought those same ones in silver using the $15 off--way too big. Returned to store without receipt (since I only paid $1.90) and got store credit for $16.90 that had to be used that day! woot

i paid $0. mine is $14.90. didn't think of getting a credit that way since my store doesn't seem to like me returning stuff. the feeling i get from them varies with the sa's though. and i haven't seen the manager that encouraged me to order from their store to make up for the returns for a while, but she made me feel like i'm hurting their store with my returns.

why won't they? how about a gift you don't have receipt for and the gifter didn't link the purchase to her phone number? (they try to search by phone number Crazy )

i have done it once. and they let me. but it makes me crazy that i have to find something to spend the $ on right there and then.

i called to exchange the imperfect striped dolman tee. got the blue/green ikat button back instead. she told me i was responsible for return shipping, i reminded her it was defective and why would i pay $7 to return $6 item, she said she'll waive it. hopefully it will all be processed without problems.

I agree. Thanks to low cut jeans younger generations no longer have a defined waist or have what we considered a flat stomach even if they work out religiously. Yet, they continue to make them & pretty much nothing else. Sometimes, I think I must be the only person who thinks it's a bad look. : confused:

In my experience, men aren't that much of a mystery. They just want us to think they are. Most men will say they prefer a girl w/o makeup. That usually translates to, "I already think you're beautiful, & don't want other men looking at you." How many times do you see women who look plain get 2nd looks? Now, how many times do you see women who dress nicely, wear at least some makeup, & style their hair turn heads? (As a side note, men & women have very different ideas of what styles look hot on a woman.) To attract a man's attention, you need to stand out from the casual, plain masses. The other option is to hang out in groups so a guy can really get to know you. In that case, the way one looks may not be as important. Unfortunately, men can't see your personality at first glance. You need to give them something they can see & find attractive.
I agree with everything you said in this post about men, their thinking on wearing less makeup , attractive girls and and about low cut jeans too laugh out loud You are so not alone to not like them. That's why I like NY&Co pants better sometimes because I feel its more for a women fit and so not made for a teenager like body. VS low five is still my most favorite. (unlike what the name suggests) It sits bit below belly button and fit is perfect without showing off the curves in wrong places plus my bootie looks cuter in those than any other jeans I own till date Whee

e*bates just sent me an email & they had deducted cash back on 4 Express orders. I haven't returned anything to Express in awhile. How far back do they go? This happens often, & I don't question it. I decided to email them about it this time, since I know it's been since Nov. at least since I returned anything. Normally, I think I may have returned something, so I just let it go.
e*bates canceled few of my VS CB in past , I bought GCs so I suspected may be thats why Unsure Let us know what reply you get for your CB cancellations.

It's the size of those cuffs you were talking about!!!

Speaking of express - I have a question about the cold shoulder tee [express.com] I bought. I paid just 6.99 for it so I think I will keep it. I love material and color I got it (windsor blue)in too. I am sure some of you might have it already but I wonder how do you wear it without showing off the bra straps? or you just don't care about it showing? The stitched part on shoulder is like thinner than bra straps itself and for top being loose it does not always stay in the same place on body.

Oooh. Yeah, different from what I was finding. Are you looking for full-length ones?
no just the shoulder covers, i have a few of the dresses from my wedding crap that are getting dusty on the shoulders since i dont wear them.

Quote from azn1x6flame View Post :
Great comments on the MUA and the brushes. Okay, I'm taking mine and bringing my own palettes for them to use. I do not feel comfortable at all sharing makeup and brushes with everyone else. Not worth the risk for my eyes. Hm...now I have a few months to consider which palette to bring. Not sure if I want them to use my precious Naked palette since I assume they'd use it wastefully. Maybe the Too Faced ones Scratchchin

Sounds like you got a great DJ!

That jar thing makes sense cause she did say something about a jar. But I was confused cause she also kept saying mug. Oh well, I guess the guests will not be enjoying their favors. Your favors definitely seemed practical and fun! bounce
if she is stuck on the jar ideas there are a few more practicle ones here: http://realisticwedding.wordpress...ar-favors/ prefreably the non baked goods.
If it is in a mug and you are microwaving i would say no.. those are notorious for exploding the mugsBlowup
this is what i imagine she is trying for, with more decoration, the mugs are real hard to keep clean around the edges also, so the will prob look like $h!T, and shes not going to be happy...

Dontknow i've heard my store say no returns without receipt. it may be different now bc of xmas... i should try! they have let me do even exchanges without receipt tho (bc the person didn't know how to look up the receipt) but i have definitely heard long fights with other customers about something like that. it's possible they were trying to get store credit or something though - i'm not sure.

i don't like pants that go up higher because my waist to hip ratio is different from others. some people get that gap in the waist from the waist being too big. i sometimes get a saggy butt area bc my waist fills out the pants but my butt/hips don't. i suspect this is one reason why lower cut pants are popular as well - there is less room for error and pants will fit more ppl this way bc they don't have to guess at waist to hip ratio as much.

i agree about low fives tho. i love them. not all of them fit the same, but most of them fit me extremely well. i just recently got a pair of low five skinny cords and they fit me like a dream. i believe my love for the fit was what brought me to this group - i was looking for a place to write a review heart. laugh out loud

i disagree about the high waist pants giving people a defined waist though. my mom does not have a defined waist and she definitely grew up in the era that favored high waist pants. i believe it is genetics that i don't have a defined waist either. we carry our fat in the same place around the midsection. also, i know a lot of people with that body shape who do not wear high waist pants. it is just your body shape - i doubt your clothing choice has much to do with it.

for that cold shoulder tee, i would just let it show. maybe wear a nude bra. i don't wear cold shoulder tees so i can't say for sure - your other option would be to wear a strapless bra. or possibly use clear straps instead.

their policy now is exchange only for no receipts. few years ago, they do store credit. i think exchange only is what happened to hba - store credit to be used the same day. it's not store credit per se, you (or they) hold on to your merchandise until you find your replacement, and they process in one transaction.

my issue with that one time i did that, is when i wanted to replace the replacement Teehee the receipt is special because it says exchange only. for that transaction, the minimum purchase for coupons apply only after the original amount. say you're replacing a $30 item in an exchange only receipt for a $45 purchase, the $15 off $30 coupon won't apply because it is counting as a $15 purchase only.

That's lame....so what if you gave someone Express items as gifts and she wanted to take them back to the store. Would they ask her to exchange on the spot, or give her a store credit?

those bugs tend to start small and reproduce like crazy (kinda like bacteria), so you wouldn't see it in fresh stuff bc there'd be very little of it. leave it alone to breed tho, and it could turn into a lot more. i think the idea of throwing it in the freezer for a day is to kill off whatever may be in there in the first place, so it never gets a chance to breed.
I like the freezer idea too. I'll start doing that. The idea of pests of any kind being in there in the first place kind of creeps me out, but I suppose what I don't see won't hurt me. Teehee That wouldn't have helped with the cereal though. I don't care, if they are dead. I'm not eating anything that I've seen what looks like worms in.

Quote from anastaciab View Post :

brownies in a mug? huh .. i have seen them in a jar, which btw were not good, and of course you cant just dump 300 brownies out and start over. For mine we did flip flops in the wedding colors, playing cards, and grr.. beer coozies (dh insisted on that one, and i made him wear pink so he won)
I've never heard of baked brownies in a jar either. Obviously, I need to get out from under the rock I've been living under. Stick Out Tongue

Those do sound like great favors. nod IME, people also like a variety they can choose from to make up their own gift & put it in a bag. Candy tables are always a huge hit. If your friend wants to make something, baking a variety of items in large batches to allow the guests to choose from may have been easier. She could have provided boxes instead of bags. I know she isn't up for suggestions at the moment. She may change her mind, when the wedding is a week away & she still has all those brownie mugs to make. laugh out loud If the mugs are nice, that will be a good favor for adults in itself though. Unfortunately, it seems the majority of favors are left. I think candy tables are the only thing I've ever seen wiped out.

Yeah, they're much less complicated than we are. I don't know how they put up with us, but I suppose that's not really a mystery either. Wink

Maybe it isn't about the boys with TS. She may just use them to get new song material. Stick Out Tongue Seriously, I don't listen to country music, so I have no idea what her songs are about. She's beautiful, but that's about all I know about her.

I need to try NY&C jeans then. I haven't shopped there in many years. Do they ever offer FS? The deal you posted for the store was amazing, but I do most of my shopping online. It's good to know VS low cut jeans are more flattering than the Express version. Most Express jeans really aren't flattering on me at all, but I still buy & wear them. We get such good deals there that I hate to pay what I would have to anywhere else.

I'll try to remember to post an update on the e*bates result.

Those jar favors look really really cute, but I know she won't go for it. She doesn't accept anything outside of her ideas. It's just that they all look really messy and not very put together at all. She's going for a "rusty but elegant" look and I can see how these fit in. ha! Would be funny if the explosions added a little something to the rustic element. I'm prepared for the wedding from hell!
