Problem: Have an event next month and THE dress to wear, but couldn't find shoes in the exact shade of red to match the dress. Finally found them at Jimmy Choo, but of course they were all sold out of my size...everywhere in New York! \r
Solution: I left my name and an online inquiry for the shoes in question on the Jimmy Choo website, and voila! A lovely boutique owner from California called today and informed me that they had one pair left in my size in the country, and she was happily shipping it to me. Can't beat that for service.\r
Now all I need is a bag to match the shoes and the dress...
Pros: Beautiful shoes, extremely helpful salespeople
Cons: Expensive (but you definitely get what you pay for!)
