I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

This was on my Christmas wish list. I NEED (needed) protection for my new iPhone 5s. I went high end because other cases/sleeves were either in the midrange $40-$60 or $100++ … and it was Etsy that sealed the deal. Prices were way too high for what you were getting, and who you would be getting it from. Sketchy-Etsy I say! Nothing replaces a trusted reputation from a 125 year old company. Ordering online from the UK is very civilized as well, never a worry. I’m still in awe, I ordered on the 18th (really, the 19th considering the time difference), and here it is at my front door on the 23rd before 6:00! Now, while I’m VAT exempt, and shipping was free (another thing; I scored free shipping with 2 days remaining on the deal, and depending on how you decipher their fees, if I’m considered USA, it’s £20, if I’m Rest of the World, it’s £30 … HUGE savings, woohoo!), but because it was delivered courier and not Canada Post, I’m not duty, tax free – was nipped for $34! Bloody buggers! It’s a thing of beauty, made in Italy … so mother ‘fn chuffed!

exquisite packaging; Nile Blue box, tied with navy grosgrain ribbon

Major Miztake!

Lookie what arrived via Canada Post yesterday. Tiff’s gorgeous riding boots! Her beautiful Isaac Mizrahi boots! Too bad they’re the wrong colour, wrong size! It’s laughable the continual fuck-ups this particular online retailer commits. Tiff woulda happily lived with the colour mizhap … despite the fact that she purposely ordered early, ensuring that she’d get her fave grey before selling out. But she def can’t live happily with those monstrous size 9s. Nor can I! Rest assured y’all, will be calling complaining pronto after posting. I won’t be missing this bus … REUBENNNN!!
