'near miss' heels : office
  i love these heels..if i had designed them, maybe i would have given them the same shape of heel but higher, but they are comfy, quirky enough but not so much that i couldn't wear them to a meeting, and they have lightning bolts on them..and glitter!
they're called 'near miss' and i think they are aptly named - i first saw them in a magazine years ago (during a uni seminar, most likely!) and HAD to have them..i knew they would be from office, so i called up the head office and asked when they would be available to order, and was told, and ordered them when they came out..then i received a letter to say that they were being recalled due to a defect, and i was gutted..i took them back into the store after receiving the letter, and asked if they would be fixing the shoes as i'd rather have them fixed then get a refund for them..i was told that they weren't sure if they would be fixed, and that the line was to be discontinued, although they didn't tell me what the problem was..so i kept them..and they haven't injured me, fallen apart, or caused me to choke on small parts, yet anyway..

has anyone else ever had a product recalled?

  1. See I never understood how the process of recalling items actually works for clothing, like they expect buttons to fall off or something? That hardly seems like a big deal to me! Love your matching outfit, glad you kept the shoes, they're cute but subtle! :)
