You got a sneak peek of my tea party outfit on yesterday's post; now you can see the whole thing! Oh, how exciting. You must be absolutely thrilled;) I can't seem to go to a tea party without dressing like some sort of cupcake (cupKeik?) or dessert. Next time, I might just bring Snowball the Panda and a throng of dollies. If you're going to have a tea party, you should always have some dolls on hand. But, I digress. On to more pressing matters:
I recently picked up a pair of the Steve Madden Caryssa platform pumps, while shopping at Nordstrom. I originally saw them on my friend Christine, and knew I had to get them in the "blush" color. Luckily, I had a handy little Nordstrom gift card and it was just enough to cover the entire cost. Gift cards are the best! In my haste, I failed to notice something in the store: the two shoes are completely different shades! I didn't even notice it until this day, while in broad daylight. I guess I have been wearing them at night, mostly, or just don't make a habit of staring at my feet for extended periods of time. Oh my goodness! How long have I been walking around with mismatched shoes? I must have worn them at least four or five times since their purchase.
What should I do? I imagine Nordstrom won't exchange them, since I've already worn them a few times and discarded the box. I'm not even sure if I still have the receipt. I'm pretty bummed, because I really adore the shoes - they're strangely easy to walk in and pretty comfortable (considering the insane height). I also love that they go with just about anything. I imagine the mismatched shoes were a quality control oversight, since no other reviews have cited this problem.
Haha...I just read over all of this complaining about shoes and I sound like a whiny brat. Woe is me!

Edit: Steve Madden is helping me resolve the issue - they have been extremely helpful. A big thank you to my reader, Mel, for bringing this to their attention! The internet is an amazing thing:)
