Years ago I found this adorable online store, Locher’s Paris, that had the most precious women’s blouses and necklaces. So feminine and petite. Then I looked closer and saw that the genius designers used these lovely fashion items as a way to get across much more important messages. Messages that speak straight from my heart. Messages like, “You Suck” and “I am the Greatest and Fuckin’ Gorgeous.” OF COURSE I ordered up a couple of shirts (I actually don’t remember what the shirts I had said. I think they were directed more toward men and what they could do with themselves) and a beautiful necklace. The shirts have long since been worn out but the necklace still lives on. It has the cutest little picture of an adorable baby on it with a sweet little button and bow hanging off the top. It says “Fuck Off”. When I wear it I sometimes get comments like, “is that your baby?” and I get to reply, “No. It says fuck off.”
Recently I received the best news. Locher’s was releasing new shirts. What? What??? Because they are genius it was a slow tease and they released their new lovely designs slowly to their adoring fans. I had plenty of time to convince myself I could do without a haircut/color and eyebrow wax to purchase a couple. How could I not? The second they were available I rushed over to their website and filled up my virtual cart. Since then I’ve been anxiously waiting for my purchases to arrive. Every time I come up my drive way I crane my neck to look over the 1/2 brick wall to see if there is a package waiting for me. Anytime I have somewhere to go I think, “if my shirts come today I can wear one out.” They never came. I was so distraught I didn’t know what to do.
Finally I jumped online and sent Locher’s an email. Here is our exchange:
Me to Lochers:
Subject: order help
> Hi there –
> I ordered two of your new blouses when they first became available and have yet to receive them. Unfortunately I didn’t keep the email receipt since I haven’t had problems with orders in the past. Can you help me find if the order has been shipped and if so where it is?
> My address:
(deleted so you can’t stalk me)
> Thank you!
Lochers to Me:
> Hello there lovely Wendy,
> These shirts are for PRE-ORDER of our LIMITED EDITION COLLECTION and will not be shipped out until OCTOBER 15TH (you must have not seen the message in red on each pagehttp://www.lochers.com/apparel5.html) and you will receive and email of shipment that day. I know you are eager to get these tops I would be too but you must be a little more patient…..and don’t forget darling, all good things come to those that wait….
> Sweet Wishes and have a fantastic week!
Me to Lochers:
I didn’t see that. I’m just happy the package wasn’t sent to a neighbor by mistake. If I saw one of them in my brilliant blouses I’d go insane.
Thank you for the quick response.
Lochers to Me:
I would too…….. xo
Don’t you just adore them? Not only are they a company of talented designers but also brilliant at customer service. As an added bonus their website and Facebook page are a hoot. Brilliantly designed with the most poignant of pictures. I really suggest you check them out and purchase one or two things for me … I mean for you … and me.
