Happenstance







F21 jacket : vintage dress : Jeffrey Campbell "Morrow" booties : F21 rings

Has this ever happened to you?

So last night was my first time out in a loooong time. I finally put on my JC Morrows. Although the height puts them at a uncomfortableness level of 9, I was eager to put those babies on my feet and bear the pain (oh, and some Dr. Scholl's inserts help too). I gave the parking attendant my 10 bucks, started walking towards the club, and

RIIIPPPPPPPPPP...

half of the sole on the left shoe tore off! There was no time to feel bad about the situation. It was time to take immediate action. I put on my puppy dog eyes, explained the situation, and coaxed the parking guy to return my 10 bucks. As I rushed home in slight embarrassment and shock from my fortuitous incident, the only thought running through my head was, "This should not be happening to brand new $200 shoes." Then I started wondering if it was Karma returning to bite me in the rear for returning those A. Wang Hannes. I have not had any problems with my other Jeffrey Campbell shoes and have actually been quite satisfied with the brand in general until now. I am very tempted to write to JC before taking them to get repaired. The trauma of having the sole rip off of your shoe while walking in public is enough to possibly prevent me from ever wearing them again. Truly a disappointing experience.

And yes, those photos were taken pre-incident. Still so cute and shiny. The poor things have now been exiled to a corner, until I figure out what to do with them.

In the end, I did find my way back to the club but this time, in a trusty pair of vintage boots. I guess they just don't make 'em like they used to.

  20. Oh no, that's terrible about the shoes. At least you found the courage to go back, I'd be too embarrassed to show up until another 2 weeks haha.

    Gorgeous rings!

  21. Thank you everyone! Jeffrey Campbell has been kind enough to remedy the situation. I will also be taking my Morrows for repair, since I really do love them.

    Caylie: My nail polish is "For Audrey" by China Glaze. I picked mine up from Sally Beauty Supply but you can get it off Ebay as well.

  22. Oh no! I would definitely write them a letter if I was you, see if you can't get them to send you a replacement pair or something? Also, I love your rings! F21 is really winning in the jewelry department lately!
