Diary of my latest shoe-shopping adventure...
Saturday 3/12/2011: I pop into Villians and spot these leopard-print, mega-tall platform booties and I think it's love and first sight. But I'm only 99% sure that I have to have them, so I decide to sleep on it...
Sunday 3/13/2011: I'm 100% certain that I have to have them, so I head back to Villians. Too late! Somebody else with unwavering convictions has snatched them from me! Fortunately the nice people of Villians point me in the right direction (maybe they should actually be named Heros).* Following their advice I go to Solestruck.com where indeed they have my shoes. Instantly, after clicking "Complete Purchase" I received the charming Purchase Confirmation email. (Note the no sales tax or shipping charges!)
Monday 3/14/2011: Less than 24 hours later I received equally adorable Shipping Confirmation email. I love the prompt service of Solestruck and the execution of their emails: the cute receipt and "SHIPPED" stamp visuals, plus the feel-goodiness of shopping with (in their own words) a "small, independent and family-run" business.
Wednesday 3/16/2011: Package arrives from UPS!

*It was a win/win/win situation... Because they were so helpful at Villians, and I really had the urge to buy something I got some sneakers for the hubby.

Date TBD: When will I have the guts to wear 6 inch platforms?
