Acquiring these shoes was a bit of a hilarious process - I initially received a left shoe in the correct size (UK 8) and a right shoe which was comically smaller (UK 4). Fortunately, the very responsive seller had good in-stock availability and offered to send me both corresponding shoes.
Because I had a feeling, this is what I said: "Thanks for your response. I look forward to receiving the other shoe(s) as soon as possible - I ask that care be taken to send the correct 'other' as despite what some may say about me, I don't literally have two left feet. :) I appreciate your taking quick action to address the situation." They assured me that they could see from my photos it was a RIGHT shoe I needed - but I bet you can guess what happened, can't you.
Luckily, they kept being really nice about the whole thing and were able to send two rights in my size, so I ended up with a backup and a wee pair to send to my friend Megan Mae. Yay! (Check out her awesome wedge stylings here and here.) Our contrasting shoe sizes are pretty sweet, eh?

I finally got around to wearing the sleeveless trench coat dress thingy with more colour, red in particular, which made me happy. The Melissa wedges made it a perfect outfit for a mild rainy day - speaking of things that make me happy, dry feet and un-wrecked shoes are on the list too.
I just noticed that August 14 was my one-year blog-o-versary - thank you all so much for reading and becoming friends! With post #100 also imminent, I'm soon due to rustle up a little retrospective in celebration. An extra thank-you to folks who've been along the whole time, and to those who recently went over to read my tobacco farming poems and see old family photos at Numéro Cinq - your extra time and generous feedback means so much to me.
I'm very glad to be feeling better than I was during my time-of-feeling-lousier-than-usual when I took these outfit photos. Because life is such that we are sometimes visibly beyond tired, I'll be joining the crew over at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday. See y'all there!
