Well, that’s a catchy title, if there ever was one!
I was so disappointed that Sole Society didn’t have my size in stock. THEN, I saw Nordstrom did (*angels sing*) so I ordered and got them here by Monday. I took them out of the box and I swear, my mouth couldn’t stop grinning. I was THAT happy. I tried them on and loved how they looked! However, my feet are too wide (I guess?) and so they were pinching my pinkies.
I didn’t know if you could stretch patent leather so I called cobblers around and they said they could. I also tried walking around in them w/socks on. Still, I was hesitant to stretch, and possibly, damage such a pretty pair of shoes. Plus, what if all that stretching still didn’t do anything ? Would I be able to return them? Being uncertain, I ordered a 1/2 size bigger yesterday from Nordstrom and chose Next Day Shipping (which is $25!!!!). I figured they would get here on time and I can see if they would fit or not and if not, take 1 of the 2 to the cobbler and get it back on time for our Annual Holiday Party on Saturday. When I ordered, they were in stock. I checked today and the status said Estimated Ship Date was tomorrow, 12/14!!! BOOOOOOO!
I did a Live Chat w/them and it turns they were on backorder and none in their warehouse so they had to find a Nordstrom that carried it. They took off the Next Day Shipping fee (only right), but I still won’t get it here by Saturday. I don’t think they ship on Saturdays…they said next Business day which would be Monday / Tuesday (depending on when it does finally get fulfilled).
So, it looks as if my lovies won’t be on my toesies on Saturday afterall. I love the way they look, but I love comfort more. Maybe I will take the ones I have to the cobbler to see if they can stretch enough to make them fit. I kind of doubt it though (see bottom left corner pic). I want my toesies to not feel like they’re going to fall off. I don’t want to be sitting all night with my gorgeous shoes! What’s the point in that?
