after one full quarter slaving away for passing grades, i fully devoted my break to slothing and doing as much unproductive shit as i could. i also rewarded myself (as my usual christmas entails) with a customary present for the occasion.
a little back story to accommodate following photos just a couple scrolls below:
i couldn't, for the love of everything holy, find a pair of lady peep my size anywhere else besides barneys. when i got there, i was appalled to find the shoes being marked at a whopping $945 - while every other store has them retailed for $895 a pair (blasphemy!).
however at this point i was just tired of stores no longer carrying my size for this particular pair of shoes and it being currently sold out everywhere else, therefore i decided to just screw it and pay $50 extra to get my satisfaction met once and for all.
i initially tried on a 36½ in black, which was just a tad too small on me and another pair of display shoes, which happened to be a 37 in beige. the latter turned out to be quite a perfect fit.
just minutes after trying on both pairs and ultimately deciding to go for the 37 in black, a lowly individual went up to me and started blabbering how she had been looking for that same shoes at four different stores (to no avail) before she finally got into barneys and bought the last pair of 37 which was - wait for it - in black, a pair that was supposedly meant to be reserved for me! she then proceeded to walk out the store as she bid me good luck on my quest in hopefully finding another one.
oh, did i tell you she also had the nerve to mention that she initially wanted to get the beige (apparently she thought it was prettier) before eventually settling on the black? because, y'kno, ~black goes with everything~
being the dissatisfied costumer that i was, i decided to launch a complain attack to SA. but the plan fell through, as the SA swiftly offered to make a quick call to the main branch to see if there was any remaining pair my size and have said pair sent all the way from new york (i assume she was just getting tired of my constant whining, outburst, and the like).
now you all might know how long does it take for a package to arrive from new york (approximately one week with ground shipping for those of you uneducated folks) and how much i hate waiting. so not only did i have to pay an extra $50, i, too, had to sacrifice my own happiness for the betterment of others. i thought i deserved a puppy for how much crap i had to put up with that day.
alas, i gave in.
swiped the magic card and came home with nothing - no shopping bag, no louboutin - but a sinking heart.
my purchase eventually arrived one week later but my long overdue excitement failed to make a come back :-(
on a semi-related note, this post totally deserves the first world problems hashtag.
