The coveted melissas came in today and these actually fit (the purple ones unfortunately had a manufacturing error -- the left shoe was wider than the other. either that or someone stretched them out ...they hardly even smelled like fruit like this pair, so it's possible they were returned and resold.. bleh):

(I tried to imitate this photo on flickr, but I guess I didn't zoom out enough.. hah. plus, it was hard to balance my feet on the wall while sitting on a fitness ball!)

So yes, finally a pair I don't have to return! in fact, they're slightly more comfortable than the other flats I got recently which have the dr. scholl's inserts in the heel. I might have to buy more of these shoes in the future now that I know what they're really supposed to feel like when both shoes are the same width.

For anyone who may've been interested in the shoes I posted about awhile back, here's a US site that has quite a few of the styles: Shop Olivine

I just now ordered myself the Night style I had been waiting for.. free shipping! def. a bonus!

Found on the back of the shoebox for my new shoes:

It's ironic that the shoes are, in fact, painful. I didn't expect these ones to work out, but I had to see them anyway. good thing they're from endless. the return label is already printed out.

Dare I risk going for the next choice? it's in a style I generally work with... hm.

p.s. Unsure if the chat issue has been solved yet (spoken about in friends only), but at least I've taken care of laundry and showered. not that these are related things.. just that I've accomplished something if not solved everything (like chat or the shoe issue).

[Edit: Hm... okay, it seems chat is fine. hurrah!
I'll continue to monitor it though]

Randomly, when I was looking at some fashion photo set on flickr, I ran across someone wearing melissa+campana shoes. at that point, I didn't know they were plastic; I was just looking to get a pair in exchange for the red shoes that didn't work which I got on my bday (I would've just gotten a half size up, but no site sold that size), so was looking at all flats.

The word jellies was almost a turn-off, but after reading enough about how they differ from others and smell like fruit (!!!), I think I must have them.

Sadly, they didn't come in colours I would've rather had them in like black or red (at least not at stores in English.. hah. kanji anyone?), but purple may just work.

Here's the main website with all the designs:

The place I plan to get them from is here: Unsung Designers

So, last night was a bit crazy considering at first I had decided I'd just do the whole anthropologie exchange/Kirby Borders trip on Saturday since dad's off then, but there was a 'maybe' possibility for my bday just so I get gifts on that exact day. I wasn't in the mood to go the later it got since I was slightly irritable due to my broken sleep. nonetheless, once he came over, I was pushed to go do it before I just delay it further....

and so on! )

..and what is most important!

I ended up getting:
Black Heart Procession - The Spell
Electrelane - No Shouts No Calls
Herbert - 100lbs (reissue)
Junior Boys - So This is Goodbye
Kieran Hebden and Steve Reid - Tongues + The Exchange Session Vol.2
One AM Radio - This Too Will Pass
and Twilight Singers - Powder Burns

Dad paid for half though my rewards card was used to earn me points anyway.

There were a few others that I would've gotten, but remembered they were at the Borders down the street, so thought I'd save it for a trip there since there was also a graphic novel I couldn't get (Kirby hardly had a good graphic novel selection.. it was weird. manga took up two rows yet there were just two sections for graphic novels at the end of the manga's second row. even the one that was said to be there, I couldn't find so either someone else decided to get it or it was misplaced. oh well). yeah, I s'pose I didn't -have- to do that, but I thought I was going to be spending enough already not knowing about the deal.

Along with those, I got:
Tindersticks - Simple Pleasure
Bill Callahan - Woke On A Whaleheart

They were in the mail! [ profile] erebrandir got me the latter one which surprised me since I didn't expect anything from non-relatives even if some people teased or considered getting me gifts in the past. it's really not necessary, but I appreciated it and already thanked him, but I'll document it here anyway!
Tindersticks was a gift from mom; it cost $25 through a seller on amazon marketplace. I listened to it a few times last night though, so it was already worth the price... a bit different than the past albums in that it was minimal, but it still had some of the classic Tindersticks sound mixed in with the pop/R&B/funk/disco-y elements.
