Black Platform Mary Janes ~ Ebay Shoe Shopping Experience

Shoe shopping is a wild goose chase for me- most of the time. I was so frustrated that one night I decided to go hunting for size 2 shoes on Ebay. I found these and ordered them within minutes. I planned to wear them with my Valentine's Night Outfit, but they didn't reach on time.
There's nothing quite like the thrill of going into a store and trying on shoes. For me, extra the thrill when the shoes actually fit. But if you've been to all the stores, and you can't find anything.... China is the answer. So risky, but worth a try.
They came in a brown cardboard box.
Cons: 
  • Can you see the white elastic under the buckle? 
  • Size UK 2 is a tad big. I can insert my ring finger in the back. Gosh, that sounds wrong! But you know what I mean. If they didn't have buckles, my feet would slip out.
  • Quality is not great. I can see some of the glue.... and smell it. 
  • Yup. It all comes back to quality. 
In spite of those cons, they are still very cute and go with everything. I don't know how long they'll last (especially in wet UK), but I'm glad that now I'll get to wear one of my dream shoes =)
They're also available in red & blue.... 
Price- $24.82 (Rs.1340). FREE shipping.
Shipped- 4th Feb
Delivered- 16th Feb

What do you think? Oh, just in case the black ones last....for next time....
Red or Blue?

  2. pretty. I envy women who can wear high heels everyday for the rest of their lives including yo of course I envy your ability to wear high heels lol. But I can imagine the frustration for finding shoes for small feet.

  5. They're gorgeous! I'd say red for next time. I've been searching heaven and earth(not literally, but you get the idea) for the perfect pair of MJs but could find none that fit me. Small feet woes.

    1. They usually write the measurements in inches and cm...but still risky

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
