The Returns Department...
It’s time for another installment of The Returns Department, a sporadic feature on my blog in which I share with you an impulse buy that went awry. So you may remember my LAST installment of The Returns Department, where I told you about the cute Mossimo wedge boots that turned out to be crappy. Well I hate to say it, but the snazzy little foldover cuff boots I'd been waiting for - the ones featured in Target's Vintage Varsity commercial - turn out to be the same lackluster quality.
First off, they're made by Mossimo - not MkLuk, as Target's website would have you believe. Although Target's site said they are "not sold in stores"... so why did I see at least a dozen pairs in my local Target store yesterday? Unless Mossimo made an identical style to MkLuck - ? Weird. In any case, I tried on my size, and the wedge is so high that you need to size up 1/2 size. And still, that does not help, as there's no padding whatsoever in these boots. Regardless: they are made of the same cheap material as the other Mossimo boots I returned, so I will pass on them.
But here's the thing: before stumbling upon these in the store, I already had these boots (in Olive, as shown here) on backorder. And now that I've seen them in person, I'd love to cancel the order. But I can't, due to Target's AWFUL web site! Every time I go into my account to try to cancel it, I get a "code error". SO FRUSTRATING!!!
