Nordstrom: Two Left Shoes & Beauty Brushes

I don’t own black boots because I always end up buying the brown pair. Black boots are a lot more practical, but somehow the brown ones just look better on their own. I finally got down to looking pass the lovely mahoganies settling down on a pair of black Steven Madden boots from nordstrom.com. I was ecstatic when it came it and tried to wear it out that first night. My whole evening outfit was ruined when I realized that I had been sent two left shoes!

I vented on Twitter, which was met with a response from Nordstrom to help me locate another pair I could order. I would have to front the additional money and return the two left shoes in order to get my money back. It was the minimum that they could have done and I am not dissatisfied, but still very annoyed. I hate dealing with returns; but more importantly is my opportunity cost. I am currently at a negative for money with no boots to show. Fronting additional money for boots I already paid for is just frustrating. And those boots would have been perfect for date night.

On a semi-related note, I just realized that Sigma brushes are available at Nordstrom stores. (Though Sigma Black Friday deals are only valid at sigmabeauty.com.) Life would be easier if I had a Nordstrom nearby.
