Typos happen to the best of us.
But wed always assumed that while a grammatical error in a Whatsapp message is easily missed, any proper products with words on them must go through enough rounds of checks that no mistakes can slip through.
Apparently this assumption is wrong.
Just one day after a man questioning Primark for how it managed to miss an i on its Friends T-shirt, a woman has called out PrettyLittleThing for sending over a necklace that reads bbby girl instead of baby girl.
Thats definitely not how the cool kids are spelling the term, to be clear, as on the PrettyLittleThing website the necklace is clearly shown with an a jewel rather than a third b.
Ring girl Bella Worlock shared the mistake on Twitter, writing: Ordered this from @OfficialPLT and this turned up instead .. putting 3 Bs on it. This a sick Saturday morning joke or what.
PLTs customer service team were speedily on the case, replying: Hey Isabella, Im sorry your order arrived like this doll. Please can you drop us a DM with your order number and well sort this out for you. – Olivia.
Weve reached out to PrettyLittleThing to find out what happened next, and will update this article if they respond.
FYI, baby girl necklaces are making a comeback recently, with loads of style influencer types wearing them (just usually without the spelling mistake).
Is it finally time for the return of early noughties fashion? We reckon so.
Dig those pink velour sweatpants out of your wardrobe, grab your lipgloss, and get ready to wear satin ties as belts.
