(Sad) Fashion Friday

Ok here is my tale of woe. I get this urge to buy new shoes for the school year, just like old days. So I go shopping and try on countless pairs and come across what I think is the dream shoe at the time. Because the price is a little on the high side, though, I decide to leave them for the time being- in my mind I am thinking I will save up my moneys in my piggy bank and come back in a month. A few days later, I go home telling my sister that I found these fabulous shoes. And what does she do? Goes out and buys them herself!! Well, I can't very well go and buy them myself now, or we'd be matching! So, these shoes were put to the back of my mind....
A few weeks later, I go shopping again. And what do I come across? A pair of shoes that I love EVEN MORE! Now these boots are just SO beautiful. I try on a size 10 (which SHOULD fit...) but unfortunately they are a little tight. No bother, I think, I can just order a size 11! After a little hesitancy about the price, I decide to take the leap. I mean these are not just ordinary boots, these boots make me feel like I am part of a different era, that I am an important person who has the capability to change the course of history! That's how great these boots are. I eagerly await the arrival of these little gems. Soon they arrive and I am ecstatic as I rip open the packaging! I whip out the marvelous brown beauties and hastily put them on my eager feet. But horror of horrors....they are STILL TOO SMALL!! How can this be?? They are size 11!! I never wear size 11!! My heart is crushed. I wear them out and about for a while to see if I can stand them, but my poor little toes are being crushed into one another. Sigh. I finally decided tonight, I suppose I will have to return them. Though it is with a heavy heart that I do so. Goodbye Beautiful Boots. Make someone else's feet very happy.

Oh Jenni - that is a sad tale! I can't believe size 11 doesn't fit. When you return them, why don't you ask if they are actually a size 11.

hey now, this sister mentioned in your blog was also seeking out back to school shoes and had no idea of the woes of her sister's search until much later. It was not in resentment that she went out and bought them. no sir. she bought them cause she loved them. i really like the boots there sis! the perfect shoes will come! by the way, you can buy the elevens of the first pair of shoes off of mom if you want.

DON'T RETURN THEM!!!! Go to an Aldo store. They can stretch shoes for free if they are from there and if not, they will probably do it for a small charge. The same thing happened to Elise. They are beautiful.
