So I’ve been looking for the perfect wearable pointy mid heel black shoe for a very long time. I decided that the sales would be the perfect moment to finally purchase this gorgeous basic. We all know that timeless basics are THE pieces to buy on sale, no? But I was wrong. Terribly wrong. You see, I have tiny feet. I know that in some cultures that is beautiful, but since I don’t live in Japan nor travel there to get me a pair of shoes (I wish!) I’m forced to wear child shoes most of the time. I love flats, so… well, not bad in that department. But what happens when I want to buy something that a 36 year old woman would wear to work? I find nothing. And what happens if I try to find it on sale? I always get this: “With those feet you should buy your shoes at the very beginning of the season” (Add a patronizing smile and that kind of pity look only a sales assistant can give). Well, as a member of a minority with a limited amount of rights in numerous countries in the world, I do not like that kind of answer. Now I can’t have my shoes with a reduced price like every other girl????? But this time I was feeling hopeful. I saw exactly what I wanted in one of the Wardrobe icons Issues. The discreet but still gorgeous Florisa shoe by L.K. Bennett. I did my research and found out that L. K. Bennett does EU 35 or UK 3. During my last trip to London I tried to find them (not on sale!) and I didn’t. Well, I thought, bad luck. Let’s wait until the sales are here and I will track them down. Guess what? No luck. Desaparecidos. I got in touch with the L. K. Bennett customer service and they answered really quickly (great customer service by the way) telling me that they don’t produce that shoe in my size and have no plans to do it. Basically, they destroyed my hopes. Sigh.
So, I’m still searching. Because as much as I want, sadly there’s no way I can change my feet. No plastic surgeon has that covered. Anyway… Goodbye Florisa. Sad face.
