other excitement in my life last night: i ordered shoes to try on for wedfest07. three pairs from zappos and one from piperlime.

i'm wearing a vintage brocade dress in a sort of muted celery color that i bought on ebay last year--three-quarter sleeves; deep squared neckline; fitted bodice; full, pleated, tea-lengthish skirt.

i'm positively giddy to report that the zappos order, which i placed at probably 7ish last night, shipped at 4am and is scheduled for delivery today.

i've ordered with them before and experienced their amazing service and shipping, but they continue to amaze me nonetheless. [black shoes from piperlime]
when i was looking for wedding shoes, i'd looked everywhere in town and found nothing; eventually, i ordered six pairs of shoes from them, tried them on at home, returned four--no hassles, no cost whatsoever--and kept the two i wanted. they give you everything you need to complete the return and it could just not be easier at all. totally easier than shopping in person, even. and the prices are competitive with dsw--better than most places, and a selection that cannot be found anywhere else. and the search is without comparison: you can filter by shoe size (including width), heel height, color, and price, and sort by even more options. you can also browse by brand. i just can't recommend them enough! (my piperlime selection is *adorable* but hasn't shipped yet. they charged me $10 for two-business-day shipping or i could have done free 4-to-7-day shipping; zappos does free overnight shipping automatically.) anyway, the ones i like best may not be the most comfortable, so we'll see. soon!
