What the...

A plethora of months ago, I posted about some glorious golden glitter flats that I coveted. Sadly, I did not purchase them at the time - but here is a picture of me trying them on in the store!

Fabulous, no? Well, my dear friends Kate and Rhonda decided to purchase these shoes for me for my Birthday (along with the "Bond Girl" coat - how generous are they?). The shoes were on backorder, so imagine my joy when the package arrived yesterday! I eagerly opened the overly-taped box, carefully opened the shoe box and this is what I found -


A shoe. ONE shoe. With stuffing remnant from the missing shoe. Oh, and the one shoe was a size 6. My shoe size? Size 8. Needless to say, I instantly began laughing hysterically.

AHHHHH! What is up with that? You have only been waiting for seven long months to get those shoes and they show up in the wrong size and they only send one? I hope you are planning on giving that store a piece of your mind... And then parlay that into some free gift cards or something to soothe your angered soul. The nerve! (maybe Kate and Rhonda got a discount for only getting you one shoe in the wrong size...)

I am STILL laughing about this. I'm so sorry that happened, yet . . . almost glad because of the humor!!!

HAHAHAHAHA. Oh. Mygosh. That is so hilarious. I can't believe it!

They're absolutely darling, though. I hope you actually get two of them in the right size soon!

it gets funnier- I talked to the company. It is now firmly established that, YES, I'd like 2 shoes. Not two pairs, two shoes, and both in a 7 1/2. maybe I should call them back and confirm that I want ONE left and ONE right.

Call me- I have to tell you how to get both shoes!!!
