Online Purchase Fail

So I impulsively ordered these cute shoes because, well, they were cute and inexpensive.

Sometimes you win some, sometimes you don't. These smell as cheap as they were. Seriously, I can't even keep them in my house the chemical smell is so bad. I've had them on our front porch for nearly a week and it's not much better. Bummer.

On the bright side did I tell you that Josh bid on two wreaths for me at the Festival of Wreaths and won 2?? Here's my super duper happy face.


Super duper happy. Wreath on the left is by Allison Abney and Elizabeth Norton. Wreath on the right is Lulie Wallace. You can see more pictures from the event here.

Are y'all done Christmas shopping? I'm not, at all. And I still have all the wrapping to do. I do this every year. I just like to take my time and enjoy the season. I hope you are too :) Life is precious and wonderful.

That bites on the shoes. You can always recycle the cute adornments onto another pair of shoes or perhaps as a brooch.
By chance where did you get so I know in the future about the smell.I have been wanting to buy from some of the Japanese sites like Sammy, but worry about the quality since the stuff is uber cheap.

Hate when that happens, and they are so cool! I just shipped back a sweater I got from Asos :( (bad purchase as well!)
Haven't I seen a photo here of a million wreaths you own? 2 more to the collection ;)

You are so cute! And I hate online purchase fail - especially when the product just seems cheap.
