As I have said many times, those of you follow me either on Facebook, or Twitter, already know that I ordered a new pair of flats (!), and have already seen a little sneak peek. So if you don’t follow me there yet, make sure you will, to get more fresh news about me and this little blog. So, let me introduce you to my new flats.
Aren’t they cute? They are from the brand Café Noir, and I purchased them via Spartoo.gr. From the first time I saw them, I thought there was something really Chanel-esque about them. It must be the classic B&W design, but they stole my heart in seconds.
I placed my order last Sunday night (March 4th-after midnight), so I expected them to come during the next week (on Friday, or at least Saturday, as they were coming with courier services and the average delivery time for the site was 5 days). But the UPS site had an expected delivery day, 9 days after I placed my order. And that’s when they came. Really punctual on their expected delivery day, but not what I was originally expected. Of course I had previous encounters with UPS couriers a few months back, when we had paid for 1 day delivery (from Thursday to Friday, as it was an urgent delivery), which cost us around 100 euros, and they brought us the package on Monday, just before (and just on time for) a scheduled trip we had. Of course this has nothing to do with Spartoo, I just remembered it, and thought I should share it with you, because I’m still frustrated for paying so much money, for 1 day delivery, and not being reimbursed after complaining to them, about that. Anyway, back to the shoes….
They were perfectly packaged, and protected, although the shoebox was a bit dirty and scratched (and I have a thing, about wanting my shoeboxes to be as perfect as possible-but that almost never happens). At least, the shoes were carefully wrapped and protected in their box.
I hope you liked my post, and sorry for my whining about courier services and dirty shoeboxes.
P.S. These are a 38, and they are actually a bit bigger than usual 38s, which makes them perfect for summer months.
