I bought these from their website last week.

All of them were at 50% off their original price of US$39.95 (SGD49.95), so I paid US$21.70 (SGD27.20) for each pair, with taxes all included. They have such a beautiful range of shoes and for that price, it’s pretty worth it. I held back on my purchase for a couple of reasons. For one, it was my first time buying from them and wasn’t too sure about the quality; also, ShoeDazzle really isn’t ‘branded’ enough for me to feel good about paying that price. I mean, at that price, I could be getting a Charles & Keith or Pedro in Singapore during one of their warehouse sales.
So anyways, these were my guinea pig buys.

I wish I had her legs to match the shoes.

I was bursting with excitement when I received my package. New shoes! 3 super-duperly hot new pairs of shoes for me me me!

My shoe haul. As you can see, I have two pairs from Aldo and three from ShoeDazzle.

Each pair of shoes comes in a striking hot-pink box and in each box you'll find a linen drawstring shoebag.

The package made me happy, the pretty pink shoe boxes made me happier and the cute, thoughtful drawstring shoe bags in each box sent me flying high. Then, the unthinkable happened – the shoes didn’t fit.

Suddenly, it felt like my world came crashing down on me. Every little bit of bliss I felt a second ago just evaporated right before my very eyes.
I was so certain I ordered the right size. I ordered my Aldo shoes in US 6.5, which was the size conversion I got from Aldo’s website, and the shoes were perfect. I figured if I’m a 6.5 there, I should be a 6.5 here too. I measured my feet and it read 9.5 inches, so I went to google that and found out that I’m actually a US size 8.

I’m still dumbfounded by the whole thing. Anyway, the three pairs I got from ShoeDazzle were sale items, and it was stated very clearly that sale items cannot be returned or exchanged. Boohoo. I couldn’t deal with that. So I went straight to my Macbook and typed a long email to ShoeDazzle.

I’m surprised by their customer service. You don’t get such quick replies in Singapore and I got mine within the two hours after I sent my email to them. I am so relieved that Heather from ShoeDazzle offered a product exchange.

I’ve replied her with a request to have them all exchanged for similar designs in size 8. Still waiting for her reply, but it seems pretty positive so far. I have my fingers crossed. It’ll make my day if she gives me the green light to have them sent back tomorrow. Please, please, please. 

Don’t Threaten Me

Don’t Threaten Me

I was outraged when I woke up this morning to 3 consecutively rude tweets that were in response to a single tweet I made yesterday afternoon.

All I did was tweet about the spam SMS I received yesterday, and god-knows how he managed to track me down. Must be his ego and he went to google his name or something.

Yes, I gave him ‘face’ by deleting that tweet, even though my conscience is clear and I really, very honestly feel that my tweet in no way, ruined any part of the ‘face’ he already had.

I’m still effing pissed. I’ll remember your name – that I can assure you.
I checked his Twitter account and this was it:

He probably didn’t have a Twitter account prior cos as it seems, I was the first person he ever sent a tweet to! *curtsy*

3 tweets on his timeline; all tweets to me.

I’m amused that he tried threatening me. After he spams people with unsolicited text messages, to think he had the guts to tell me he doesn’t send spam. Lol!!! Don’t tell me legal this legal that. I think I’ll win the case anytime, even without a lawyer. Kthxbye!
