You just never know who is reading your blog...

A few weeks ago I wrote about all of the cute preppy shoes to be found at Payless this season.  I mentioned I saw a pair on their website but when I got to the store they didn't have them in stock.  I bought another pair instead and got on with my life but kept them in the back of my mind in case I was ever in another Payless and had a chance to look for them.

Later that day I got an email from Mr Uncle Toad.  He told me he 'knows a guy'.  Turns out Mr Toad told said 'guy' about my blog post and between them are going to get me my shoes!  Apparantly Payless really likes people to blog about their shoes and also really likes to make sure people wear their shoes. 


Feeling a bit like Cinderella minus the evil stepsisters I gave Mr Toad the shoe info and size and a couple of weeks later I found these on my front step*.  Aren't they adorable!

Thank you for being my hero, pulling strings and getting my shoes Mr Toad!  I love them!
Thank you Payless for going above and beyond to make a customer happy!


Have a fabulous day!

*** I have been asked to remind all Canadians that Payless does not ship to Canada - something about tariffs or some such thing ***
