Shopping: Mr. Gugu & Miss Go

"Keep Calm and Love Mr Gugu & Miss Go"

A few months ago I ordered some clothing I absolutely adored at the Polish website Mr Gugu & Miss Go. I ordered a swimsuit with a print of the birth of Venus (check it out in this post & also here) and a skirt I've been searching for for ages. So I checked the prices and I was amazed to see that I could actually afford these gorgeous items!! As fast as I could, I put them in my online shopping basket and went to the check out. I was super happy with my new purchases, but then it took quite a while for the items to arrive...

I checked my profile at the website again, and it turned out my order was canceled. So I sent Mr Gugu & Miss Go an e-mail and this was the beginning of a long, long e-mail conversation. Turned out, the workers of the website missed the order, as I payed from the Netherlands and I bought the items on a Polish website.. Technical talk, I guess. Then we had some more talk through e-mails and second bummer was that they didn't make the Venus swimsuit anymore. They had some problems with the graphics... Too bad, but the people over at Mr Gugu & Miss Go are amazing, as they showed me very fast which swimsuits they were still making, so I chose one. And they said they were gonna send me a gift as a compensation for the whole situation. "Ohh that's so nice!!" I thought.

And oh yes, they were nice. Very nice. They sent me 2 (two!!) bathing suits instead of one, and a button shown above (quite a great motto for the entire situation, don't you think?). Now all I've got to say is:

Thank you so much Mr Gugu & Miss Go for the compensation!!

What's on the pics?
galaxy swimsuit, cloudy swimsuit (not available anymore) and elephant skirt

The items look a little bit strange on the pics, that's because of my mannequin. She hasn't got a long enough body for the skirt so I had to use cardboard to not have it look even stranger. :-) I also had to use a small piece of cardboard on the bottom of the fitting doll, as it got a little bit too used over the years so she looks like she has a cameltoe if I don't use the cardboard haha.

How do you like these items?? Have a nice weekend guys! :-)
