I still remember the first time I purchased a pair of shoes online and how excited I was to finally get that package from Victoria’s Secret. I’d selected the perfect pair of stylish heels and couldn’t wait to slip my feet into them. I was so disappointed when the shoes, a size 7, were too small for my feet. It wasn’t worth it to me to send them back and have to pay both return shipping plus a restocking fee to get the correct size, so I ate the $70 and gave the shoes begrudgingly to my friend. I never attempted to buy shoes online again.
Then I learned about ShoeDazzle, who does online shoe retail the way it should be done. Sizes will vary between different brands, and it can get costly to return shoes that don’t fit the way you think they will. Because of my experience with Victoria’s Secret several years ago, I thought I would play it safe and have ShoeDazzle send me a size 7.5 to review. The adorable fuschia peep toe bootie arrived very quickly, but to my surprise ended up being too big. I got to experience the return process myself, and it was incredibly easy. My shoe order came with a pre-printed return shipping label and a short form to fill out so I could get the correct shoe size. I filled out the form, re-packaged the incorrect size shoes, and sent them back. The best part was that no restocking fee was involved, and ShoeDazzle covered the return shipping. In less than a week, I had the right size and my feet were looking more stylish than ever.
In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness, the designers at ShoeDazzle created a line inspired by courageous women who have fought personal battles with breast cancer. The pink booties I received are part of this line, and some of the proceeds from the purchase of these booties (called Beth) and the other items in the line will be donated to the Susan G Komen Foundation for the Cure.
