In combat

 Midi accordion skirt from M for Mendocino / Black boyfriend blazer from H&M / Black combat boots

I don't always wage war against a company, but when I do, it's over a pair of shoes. You know that feeling when you ho and hum over something you kinda want, then come back to it and it's gone? I experienced that last weekend. Except that it wasn't my fault. I swear.

So here's my story. I've been hunting for a pair of comfortable low heels for months now to wear to a wedding I'll be attending in May. Long, long story short, The Bay's website was having technical issues in 3 different places. I'm less irate when people own up to an issue. But when two customer service reps don't believe me, that's when the gloves come off.

I swear I'm usually not this insane, but when a company keeps saying "we'll call you" and never does, I have no choice but to call them. Every other day. What, I wanted to make sure that I got my cheap comfortable shoes on time! After today, I kind of felt like I was in one of those stereotypical relationship situations. They say they'll call, they don't, and I'm left wondering if it seems too needy and desperate if I'm the one to call. Oh good grief, is this what awkward dating is like?

Anyway, after a week-long battle and over 60 collective minutes of being on hold, my heels are being shipped to me. I win.

Follow on:


  1. Success! I would've been SO annoyed, probably even more annoyed than you. Bad customer service is the worst, I still haven't forgiven River Island for their rude online customer service reps haha.

  2. Rofl, sometimes customer service is so horrible it completely puts me off and I ban the store from my shopping list forevah! Dramatic much? :D
    Adore this outfit my dear, only you can pull off a pleated long skirt with combat boots! And yay, happy your heels are going to arrive soon, can't wait to see them!

  3. We have ALL been there! Thanks for stopping by our blog, yours is adorable!


  4. I hate bad customer service, I don't know why companies do it because it just means they'l loose business! If that happened me I would've been calling them every hour until I got somewhere aha! At least you got the shoes in the end!

  7. Lovely pics! And, I can so identify with this post! The most angry I've ever been was with a customer service rep who denied that their company set up a service call with me (that I had to take off work for). Yes--not being believed--that's when the gloves come off! xx T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com
