- Wedding: June 2010
Ok so those of you who have been following my posts about my red shoes know that I really and I mean really wanted the Jeffrey Campbell Charo shoes ….
The only place that they seemed to be available was at nordstrom.com…..checked it ..none in my size…called customer service…they can’t locate my size anywhere…so on a whim last Thursday I decided to call a store in Chicago to see if they had them..a girl named Olivia said yea we have them and I’ll hold them for you til Saturday. So as I stated in my previous post….I was elated!!
Now that you have the background….my mom and I hop in the car and drive an hour and a half to downtown Chicago…I go in and Olivia is working so I ask her for my shoes so that I can try them on…she goes in the back and come out with……THE WRONG FRIGGIN SHOE!! It was very similar but wasn’t it!!
I sit down cuz at this point I can’t breath….I just started crying my eyes out…Olivia is like what’s wrong….and I’m just like…thats not my shoe, that is not my shoe. I asked you for the Jeffrey Campbell not the Charles David …. it doesn’t even sound the same!!! And she was like oh my god I’m so sorry. By this point I’m sobbing my little eyes out. So immediately she begins to try and fix her mistake….she’s searching hard for my shoes… at all the stores and online…can’t find it. So then she’s like we have so many other shoes here….we’re gonna find you something that you love. I just looked at her and I was just like ok but inside I wanted to choke the life out of her…..I’m not kidding…like every single breath.
So she’s bringing me tons of red shoes…..I mean I had at least 30 shoes boxes in front of me. My mom who is very outspoken like me is like….we need discounts and BIG ONES!! My daughter is very upset…which was not a lie at all. I was beyond devastated. People were crowding around and asking what was wrong.
Needless to say that Olivia devoted much of her afternoon today to me and finding me a shoe that while it wasn’t my beloved Jeffrey Campbell Charo..would make my eyes twinkle and make my feet look stunning on my special day.
So while I didn’t get these….Jeffrey Campbell Charo $115.00
I did get these Stuart Weitzman Paradise ..,…orginally $395.00 for $100.00 and these Charles David Spicey …originally $115.00 for $55.00 and not to mention free lunch in the Nordstrom Cafe for me and my mom which was delicious…so I think in the end I came out a winner!!
