  1. Hi, hoping for some good advice. I bought a prom dress for my daughter from an independent dress shop it cost £400 and had a value of £450. The agreement with the shop is that it would be ordered, I would collect it and take it to a seamstress to be shortened (they are made to standard length so this is common practice) I would then return to the shop with the dress to have it steamed by them ready for the prom. The dress was perfect on collection and it was agreed it was perfect when I dropped it back to the shop for steaming. However when I collected the dress
  2. I put a £900 deposit down on a dress in October 2016 with a small wedding dress shop. I signed a contract that said that it is not possible to have a refund of the deposit. It was ordered and when the dress arrived in March, I went into store to try it on. It had loose threads and rows of beading falling off the front of the dress (costing £1700 in total). The store assistant apologized and said that it was not good. I left the store and the dress in their care and said that we would try and sort something out. I had to leave and I did not take photos. A family member and the store
  3. Tomorrow I'll be interviewed for a job as a kitchen porter. My flatmate works there and is going back home and will recommend me for when he finally quits. The head chef knows I have a past in office and IT, so he won't be very trusting of me (or so my flatmate told me). What to wear for the interview: if I go too casual, he might think I don't take the interview seriously; if I go suited and booted, he could think I'm overqualified. Any suggestions? [i'm desperate and I really need this job]

  5. I have had a similar experience at edinburgh high riggs, but this is more complex. On the 8th dec 2014 i was asked by a security guard to take down the hood from my hooded top. I did but pointed out it was winter and a number of people were wearing hooded jackets and hats who were already in the building. The security guard insisted it was hoodies in particular. On the 16th of feb 2015 I go sign on again, this time a different security gaurd tells me I can not wear a hooded jacket; i tell him of my last experience, but this makes no difference. On entering the building i notice
  6. My other half bought two dresses from a well known high street store, tried them on at home and returned them, they refused to refund one dress as it had a stain on it. They are blaming us for the stain but it was already marked but we cannot prove this. They are saying there is absolutely no way they would have missed it as they check all dresses at point of sale, but they clearly did miss this and the other faults on the dress which are in addition to this - there is a clasp missing at the top of the zip at the back and a couple of other minor marks. It is clear
  7. Hi, I'm new to the forum and need some advice on a recent wedding dress cancellation. I'm getting married next year and in July this year, I chose a beautiful dress at a chain wedding dress shop. I was asked to pay a 20% deposit, which I did on the day. The remaining amount was not due until December and this is written on my contract. Last month however, due to a change in circumstances, I had to cancel the dress. I knew that I would lose the 20% deposit I had made as it was non refundable and the contract clearly states this. I rang,emailed and wrote to the head office in mid September and
