I was planning to take pics today, but unfortunately I'm a bit under the weather so I decided to review my recent DSW purchase instead. This order took FOREVER to arrive! I'm guessing that it was due to the size of the box. I went to the post office for two weeks straight in anticipation, so when it finally came I was OVERJOYED (hence my kissing the box)! I opened the box to find the Zigi Soho OTK boots, but instead of the Coconut Gretchen booties there was a pair of heeled loafers! I was so blown! I tweeted DSW and they immediately emailed me regarding correcting the mix up. I was given a $10 refund and my booties were to be upgraded to 2-day expedited shipping. The refund was credited within a week, but the expedited shipping didn't happen...possibly because I ship to a PO Box? I finally received the correct shoes 7-10 business days after I contacted them about the mix up.
I love the Zigi's! I rated them 4 out of 5 stars only because they are a little narrow, but they are leather so they should stretch. I can't wait to wear them with leggings, skirts, shorts, and dresses...ok...well EVERYTHING!
I have mixed feelings about the Coconut booties (maybe because it took a month to get them). They're cute and somewhat comfortable. The fit is good and the sole is rubber which is great, so it looks like a wedge but feels like a sneaker ;). The somewhat refers to the heel height. They're a little high for me and I'm not sure how practical they will be for daily wear so I'm on the fence...
In spite of this experience, I'm still a fan of DSW. In fact, I placed another order last week. Can we say addict!?! I couldn't resist... With double rewards, I got $20 in DSW rewards, I had a coupon for $5 off, there was another coupon code for $15 off the purchase of 2 pairs, and free shipping!!!
Now that I've updated my shoe collection, I have to step up my clothing game because flowy dresses with tall boots are NOT enough to ward off the cold. I learned that the hard way!
