Last night I received an email from Net-a-Porter inviting me to click on a Jacquemus dress, which I did and bought within a few minutes.
I paid with my Eastwest Visa, using Johnny Air as my shipping address because we all know when things get shipped to Manila, Customs will make you regret it.
Shortly after, I received this email:
I don’t have an alternative U.S. address. It was 2:25 in the morning, and I didn’t have energy to fight for a dress. I checked my order history at Net-a-Porter and found this:
I had forgotten that I have never had a successful order from the store so I posted this on Instagram to remind me:
I received lots of suggestions from followers. Grace even called to tell me she has successfully ordered from Net-a-Porter lots of times and shipped via Johnny Air. (see below)
This morning Eastwest called to tell me they were putting my card on hold due to an anomalous online transaction. I told them, do not put my card on hold. I made that transaction, and please don’t charge me because they cancelled the order.
I’m convinced that Net-a-Porter has flagged my account and I can never order from them.
Whatever. I’ll find that Jacquemus dress elsewhere.
P.S. Found the same dress on Shopbop 25% cheaper. Plus free shipping via Amazon Prime. Meant to be.
