A brief post to lament the untimely departure of my 3rd blue item.
The 3rd item was, as some of you guessed, the Mulberry shoes I was lusting after on Net-a-Porter.
They arrived in a lovely black NAP box:
And were encased in a beautiful bright pink Mulberry box within (complete with black NAP ribbon)
But alas, they were too small!!
I ordered them in a size 36, which is my usual size in most shoes. I usually wear a 35.5 in sandals, or even a 35, but a 36 in shoes to give more room for my wide hooves.
The Net-a-Porter size advice for these was that they are 'true to size'. I even talked to their customer service to explain my wide foot issues.
They assured me the 36 would be fine.
But it wasn't.....
So, they are going back today, as soon as the DHL man makes an appearance.
I am mighty sad.... but don't think I haven't re-ordered them in two different sizes. Yes, I am so OCD that I've exchanged these ones for the 36.5 and have ordered the 37 too, just in case.
I also alerted NAP to their misleading advice and they have refunded me the shipping costs as an apology.
They do have Very Good customer service.
I know it's a very shallow, first-world kind of problem, but I do wish that sizes would be consistent. Or that my feet were less like short, wide paddles!!!
So stay tuned for the next episode in the blue shoe conundrum!
