Summer come soon. Please?

My order from Ruche is finally here!

Pink Studio "Thora" peep toes in olive $57.99


light linen pocket dress $34.99 down from $44.99


fruity pebble flower beaded ring $20.00

As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I placed this order sometime during the holidays, waited anxiously for the days to pass and when the parcel notification finally arrived, guess what? I had it lying around for more than a week, unable to find time to collect it from the post office. Bummer, I tell you. Good thing for me, sister came to the rescue and offered to help...

I know all the stuff I got are way too summery, but I couldn't risk missing out on them.

Especially the Pink Studio shoes...

This was love at first sight people!

It was also my first time ordering shoes from a brand I've never tried on before. Sure, I have ordered Chie Mihara and Camper shoes online before, but I already knew what size I take there, so there was no nail-biting involved. But in this case, I was actually too scared to try them on when I first opened the box. Turns out, I shouldn't be. They fit like a glove, and on top of that, they are super comfy too! I usually wear european size 38 or 39, and for those I ordered an american size 8, which couldn't be more perfect.

Shipping from the USA to Greece was $25, which is almost double the $13 shipping fee I paid on my order from Nasty Gal, but again remember this parcel contained shoes - definitely bulkier and heavier - so I consider it fair enough. Overall, I am very pleased by the quality (the shoes are real leather), the selection of styles and the prices over at Ruche and I totally recommend it.

The only bummer is that it's still January... No sandal-and-sun-dress-wearing for me just yet.

Oh summer, please come sooner this year!

PS: I thought it would be useful to mention that Ruche is offering a 10% discount through The Clothes Horse till the end of January. Read Rebecca's post to take advantage of it. Who knows, it might come in handy!

indeed the shoes look great.
look on the bright side, till summer comes, you'll forget you ever bought the shoes and when warm weather is finally here again, you' ll open your closet! and voila, the forgotten shoes will be there, and it will be like falling in love with them all over again.
regarding, ruche, i ordered a bag back in the summer, but it looked much better and luxurius on the site than in real life, so i got a bit disappointed. but overall the prices are right and the ordering proccess went smoothly

Με γεια, Λόπη! Με τέτοια αγορά κι εγώ θα ανυπομονούσα για το καλοκαίρι! Έχουν φανταστικά κομμάτια στο site τους. Έχεις παραγγείλει ποτέ ρούχα από εκεί; Ξέρεις καθόλου για την ποιότητα των υφασμάτων;
