Yay! They have arrived.
I bit the bullet and purchased the Prabal Gurung, Ankle Strap Sandal (remember when I was coveting them HERE?) and am quite pleased. I purchased them through eBay and the seller, Ann, was great to deal with. At first, I accidentally bid on the wrong size with three minutes left in the auction; I got excited and clearly thought I was bidding on my size--duh.
Needless to say, I won the auction and then realized they were a size too small. I decided to take a stab in the dark and emailed the seller to see if she would be willing to cancel the sale as I purchase the wrong size but figured I'd be on the hook to pay and didn't expect much.
As luck would have it, she happened to have a size 10 for sale and said she would simply swap them and send me the correct size! She was so sweet and I am so fortunate. She's based out of the US too, which I like--and they arrived within a week.
I'm on a huge strappy sandal kick right now. I've been wearing my Zara heels non-stop--which is kind of unlike me as I like to rotate through my shoes, if possible--and now I just need a black pair to complete my summer collection and I'll be good. Haha.
Want to snatch up a pair for yourself? There are loads of them on eBay right now HERE.
