4Lots of shoppers are in a tizz about ASOS’ site crashing

On the day that half the nation mourns the impending exit of the UK out of the EU, two major retailers are left reeling from their own dose of Brexit bad luck.

Online fashion giant ASOS ‘ site has crashed and people are losing it as a consequence.

It’s been well over 12 hours since the website and app first encountered problems, and disgruntled shoppers have taken to Twitter (as you do) to vent their discontent.

The site has been down for more than 12 hours

The retailer’s customer service Twitter account ASOS Here to Help sent this message to their followers over six hours ago:

Eek – looks like there’s a tech glitch with the site & app. Bear with us – the IT gurus are on it!

At the time of publishing this article the site remains down… Could this be Brexit bad luck striking again?

Elsewhere in the social stratosphere high street fashion store Dorothy Perkins came a cropper when someone on their social team seemed to forget that the EU referendum results were being released on the day they sent out this positively perky post:

“Woo! Who has that #FridayFeeling?”

To which Twitter responded in suitable fashion:

3We’re coming up to high summer (we think…) and wedding season is now in full swing, so if you’re looking for a colour to sport this season, make sure it’s peach.

The sweet shade is having a moment and it’s good news for those of you, who aren’t keen on blush and nudes. The warmer tones look great with metallic accessories or clashed with a brighter pair of heels. And don’t forget to pack a bikini or dress in this hue for your holiday – it looks great with a tan.

Make like TV presenter Katie Piper and actress Naomie Harris and rock the peachy look, with our picks from the high street.

Many of the jewelry wholesale pieces that you make will include birthstones, and purchasing birthstones is not always cheap. Therefore, you will need to find jewelry wholesale sources for birthstones that you can afford.

Everyone loves jewelry with their birthstones in it. This type of jewelry makes perfect birthday gifts, as well as Christmas gifts. Some birthstones, such as opals, are quite inexpensive, while others, such as emeralds, rubies, and diamonds are very expensive.

One option is to purchase simulated stones. These stones are not real, and it is important that your customer be made aware of this. However, some customers will want the real deal! Again, you need a source for real birthstones.

The Internet is the perfect place to find birthstones. There are numerous jewelry wholesale outlets that do business online. Because there are so many, prices are usually rock bottom. Make sure that you make sure any company that you do business with is legitimate, and that the gems you buy are quality birthstones!
Also make sure that you know exactly which stone is required in the piece that you are making. Each month actually has different gems that represent it, depending on which tradition you are following. Verify the exact stone that is wished for with the client before making a purchase!

Jewelry shows and expos are great places to find jewelry wholesale. These shows and expos are held all over the world throughout the year, and no matter where you live, a show will eventually be held near you – probably within a days drive. In fact, if you live near a major city or a convention center, there will probably be several shows throughout the year that you will be interested in when it comes to jewelry wholesale.

One of the great things about these shows and expos – aside from all of the gorgeous jewelry on display and the fabulous prices – is the information that is offered. These shows and expos often cover entire weekends, and related seminars and demonstrations are often included as well.

There is an entry fee for these shows and expos, in most cases, but it is typically quite affordable. A good way to find shows in your area is to visit http://aksshow.com/home.jsp Another way to find shows is to visit a search engine and type ‘jewelry shows your home town’ into the search box, where your home town is the town you live in, or a major city near you.
