Confession of a shopping addict: shoes anyone?

Ever since I got my own part time job, I been using much more money. This is bad...But whenever I see something nice on sale, I just can't help but to think it's a good investment. My excuse is that I needed new summer shoes (+ one pair of closed-toed shoes?)! Each pair was purchased from Little Black Bag for ~$11 after considering the cost of shipping.

I ordered these a couple weeks ago. Little Black Bag has this thing where after you purchase, you can have a week to trade around your items. However, I didn't end up doing any trading. I just wanted these shoes. I could have just shipped them right away, but I forgot. Thus they arrived just a couple days ago.

I was super excited to receive them--totally sick of wearing socks and canvas shoes during this 90F weather. It was torturous! I was happy that these shoes came pretty legit--in a shoe box. I really didn't know what to expect.

The lace pattern on this was totally unexpected. On the website, I didn't notice the pattern at all. It's a super cute shoe. It seems pretty comfy as well. However, I got a size 7 and I usually purchase size 7, but this pair of shoe was way too large. There was like a 1/2 inch of space between my feet and the heel of the shoe. I was so sad...this was the pair that I really, really wanted to wear and use.

I really loved the extra little pizzaz on this flat. I love how it appears so chic and formal. It's a size 7 and fits better than the one above but definitely still a little too big. I could fit a finger behind... I would keep it if it were a snug fit, but since it's a ballet flat styled shoe, if it doesn't fit, it's going to flop around when I walk.

It looked a lot better on the site. I didn't really like it even when I saw it. After trying them on, I just disliked it more. The top is too wide. It makes my already slightly wide feet look monstrously wide. The concept is nice, the colors are nice, but the fit just doesn't work.

I'm sad, but I don't think I'm keeping any of these shoes. I want to return them right now, but sadly Little Black Bag is transitioning to Pose, and they haven't been very contact-able...I'm trying to figure out how the whole return process is going to work, but I'm also busy with finals...Soon though, I'll try calling and/or emailing again.
