>>I predicted disaster and disaster came indeed.  My digital camera containing all my Gucci event footage and also pics of me all made-up, with newly coiffed hair and of course THE dress was STUPIDLY (and yes, I am slapping myself on the hour…) left in a taxi cab last night when coming home from the Gucci bash, and is pretty much now declared missing.  Therefore, my coverage is going to be on the texty side and yes, I am crying floods of tears from losing my iBook, my Sony Vaio and my Canon Ixus in just over a week.  This surely beats the time I left not one but two Yamaha flutes on the bus and never got them back.

    Oh no!!!!!!!!!! I’m mourning along with you and that loss sounds devastating! I’d be crying buckets of tears as well. But I do pray that you’ll somehow manage to get them back!

    And to top it all I don’t think your email is working? If you didn’t get yesterdays email from me, then I think we are just going to have to hope we bump into each other on Sunday as I can’t think of another way to contact you.
    Not to worry, you have other things on your plate to think about anyway xx

    De-lurking to say I’m so sorry. I do hope that luck turns around soon, and that you’re still able to enjoy your time in New York.

    Susie you poor thing, – maybe there is still some hope that you could get it back.
    Louise – what was point of your comment ?!!!

    You poor thing…that sounds awful. It’s ok if your reportage is text-heavy, though- we don’t mind!

  20. headmistress

    2008-02-07 at 3:44 PM

    oh my, so sorry. I can understand the pain and the running around in floods of tears – losing things on public transport is one of my biggest phobias and I’ve lost some terrible things.
    I hope there’s some outside chance of getting your camera back… you never know – there are actually a few kind souls out there! or some form of compensation – although that can’t make up for the pics of course. I really hope your trip gets better for you though!

    That’s just terrible. You must feel even worse than my friend did when she puked over her Sony Vaio (don’t ask) about a month ago.
    I hope you’re still sort of enjoying New York though.

    As someone who relies extensively on his iBook and Canon Rebel, I really feel your pain. Ouch. Ouch ouch ouch.
    May your future technology not abandon you in this manner.

    Wow, Susie!! This is unbelievable what you have been put through! I admire your dedication and commitment to your blog and hope the abudance gods will shower you with gifts and your long lost items!

    Sorry to hear about the camera, but you look beautiful, Susie. It’s perfectly and wonderfully appropriate, and yet you didn’t sacrifice your personal style in order to make it as such.

    Oh man, that’s rough.
    It seems everyone is going through some rough times this week…. The Sartorialist lost his Blackberry, and I lost my Sony Cybershot.

  41. gerald

    2008-02-08 at 9:46 PM

    i can understand if somone robbed you of your things, but its quite obvious you are stupid and iresponsible. Also- i’m sure Gucci invited you to the event in hopes of you covering the event on your blog/get readers involved in the cause, ala Chanel? I agree with JJess…How stupid are you?
    You were attending as a sort of press, noone gives a fuck what dress you wore…I hope you learn from this.

  42. Selena

    2008-02-08 at 9:58 PM

    ^^ Wow…that’s harsh.
    Are you crazy… somewhat? Shit happens and anyway…she went and you didn’t, so guess you are jealous?

  43. dimes

    2008-02-09 at 1:25 AM

    okay, comment above was harsh but has some truth to it. you made some very unprofessional errors (ie. camera in the cab, maybe too much champagne from the bottle on the dance floor, bringing boyfriend on a business trip…) but just up your game next time. i think we’re all disappointed this didn’t work out for you. we commenters & readers take what you do seriously… so should you.
    i don’t know bubs. your on the cusp of becoming a very respected fashion blogger/source. don’t become the ‘ashlee simpson’ of the online fashion community with excuses and blow this opportunity you’ve created for yourself & others. so far of the four blogs i’ve read who covered the event, 2 were thorough & 2 were just amateur. right now the fashion industry is trying to filter through this blog world and with posts like this, your going to be left on the wrong side of the fence.

    2008-02-09 at 1:59 PM

    Oh please! Enough with the patronising comments. This is a blog not the Inde-bloody-pendent. Susie has no obligation to post about the event, its her blog she can do as she likes. Anyone who reads this blogs surely knows how seriously she takes it? oh my God, I’m stressed enough cos my camera charger won’t work, I’d be slashing my wrists if I lost my camera AND laptop with no hope of getting them back. For what it’s worth, Mercury is in retrograde which means all manner of communication breakdowns, misunderstandings and irritating hold-ups/delays etc. Anyone else experiencing technical difficulities please bear with it for a few more days. (I wish I could take my own advice.)

    You self righteous twats. How frickin rude can you be? The fact that Susie does this just for the love of fashion shows how dedicated she is. That’s why people love this blog, its not up its own arse.

    I actually had to laugh out loud when i read some of the above comments. im still laughing now! the fact that people were saying things like ‘you’re unprofessional…you should take it seriously…you shouldn’t have taken your boyfriend on a business trip’ etc is hilarious. its a fashion blog you morons! Susie’s not the prime minister or something! How stupid are you?! This isn’t Susie’s job, its her interest! The reason i read the blog is because i can relate to her, as a normal girl with a yearning for fashion, not because she is a ‘professional’. And i agree with the comment above – bad comments only equal jealousy. Susie has been to Gucci, Chanel, she’s been featured in Grazia, she contributes to things like fashion156.com…and all the while working full time in an office, when most of us spend our free time vegging out in front of the tele, susie clearly works hard. and she has my respect. She is very lucky to have the opportunities she has (like going to gucci) but they were earned. Keep blogging Susie!
    p.s – id have taken my lovely boyfriend too! What’s the point in going to somewhere like NY if you can’t share it with the one you adore?!

    I think I’ve said all that needs to be said in my latter post but I just want to say I hope those that feel I was unprofessional will accept my explanations and my situation. It’s very difficult for me to be straddling/balancing so many things at one time… I’m currently reviewing the situation but as yet have no solution….
    And thanks for everyone’s sympathetic messages. I called up the cab company etc and nothing has showed up…. I’m sure someone out there is enjoying/perplexed at my 2gb memory card worth of random fashion snaps….
