The infamous Lita's

Black calf leather Litas - Jeffrey Campbell

Hey dolls,

 So my litas FINALLY arrived! WOOO! 

Ok theres kind of alot I want to say but I dont want to make this post too long! I ordered these litas from Solestruck which is an american site on the 31st of august...yeah...august! They say it will take up to 10 days to arrive but no I was waiting until yesterday..Not impressed! 

I reckon it wouldn't be a problem if you live in the US but ordering from overseas was a nightmare!
 They cost $159.95 and then shipping on top brought the price up to around what you can pick them up for in London anyway in Office or urban outfitters, you can track the delivery on the site which is quite handy and thats what I did but when i thought...ok this is getting a bit long now, the tracking update was so vague! it didnt explain atall what was going on, I went to my local post office (where the deliveries go to) and they said it was at customs, Surely enough it was but they didnt let me know for a good few days, I had to phone up and then pay £32.10 over the phone which was VAT i think...I thought that was a bit out of order! I contacted Solestruck and they said it had been given a new tracking number once it entered the UK.....well thanks for letting me know! 

 So I waited 22 days for my beloved litas to arrive...Which meant after a while my excitement kind of drifted..I begun to think they might not come!

 All I can say is...I wouldn't recommend solestruck if you are ordering from the UK!

 HOWEVER! Because I hate to be negative! Now they have arrived I LOVE them and they are just as amazing as I thought they would be, I just like to stare at them...haha!
 They are great quality and the colour and finish is perfect, I tried them on and the feel quite comfortable, they wobble a little bit but I defiantly need to just get used to them!

 Now I am planning what colour to get next...hehe! (Im wearing them tonight so i'll give you guys an update!) 

 Has anyone else had delivery problems? Maybe mine was just a one-off, anyone got any tips or tricks for walking in them? =]

Congratulations, haha :) I love Lita's, I think they're... I dunno... super unique. The black ones are a great choice, because you can wear them with nearly everything. I'm looking forward to your first outfit post with them <3

I bought my litas from Solestruck too and sheepishly forked out the extra money for the speedy delivery, and they came in 2 days!
Theyre such gorgeous shoes though, and soo comfortable to wear!

Ah they are so amazing! :D I would love some but I am quite tall and wouldn't get enough use out of them! But if I had unlimited spends then I would get them to stare at and where them on special occasions and when around taller people :D

Grace said...

I love these boots! I bought mine while I was in Las Vegas so thankfully I didn't have the shipping nightmare. I think considering they're pretty massive heels they're actually very comfortable and wearable, I'm in love with mine! xoxo

Nicola said...

They are so amazing! I was planning on ordering off Solestruck (I live in the UK) around Christmas time, unfortunately the ones I want aren't available in the UK (as it stands) :( Hopefully the postage will be okay though! Thanks for sharing your thoughts xx

Trini In The City said...

ahhhh! u finally have them! I would love to own a pair but not right now lol Congrats and I hope you'll master the walk soon! =) xx

sonniski3z said...

my pair just arrived yesterday too! I was thinking of ordering from Solestruck until I shopped around some more online and found another site that offers them : http://www.revolveclothing.com/Homepage.jsp?null! They don't have as many colours/styles as Solestruck, but all I really wanted was the classic black. This site had great communication and my pair came in two weeks from ordering! :) Check it out next time, they may be better with international orders :)

rach said...

i ordered mine from nastygal and had the exact same problem, £30 custom fees, soooo annoying!

Bleu said...

AngelaQ said...

I just bought Litas recently too! However not from solestruck, I actually got mine from Revolve Clothing which I definitely recommend. They despatched really quick, the only delay was Customs. (I only paid £25.25 actually but was expecting much more)|

Glad yours arrived eventually! I love mine <3 and they're so easy to walk in too!

Frederica said...

Please Please check out my blog, it would MEAN THE WORLD TO ME... I've had to quit work (former hairstylist for medical reasons) and this is giving me another outlet to still be in the beauty world XOXO, I'd so so appreciate ladies. Thank you!

Veer Allure said...

The first time I ordered them from solestruck to London, I couldn't wait so I forked out the extra cost and got them on express delivery, and got them also within 2 days. Then without realising that you had to pay the customs tax, I ordered 2 pairs from them to get international free delivery. I was lumbered with a fat customs tax bill, but worth every bit i forked out. Would I do it again? HELL YEAH, I already trying to decide which ones I want :)

peachesandnothing said...

Solestruck is a great website if you live in the states. I bought my first pair of Jeffrey Campbell Lita January 2011 and it took only 4 days. They are great boots, perfect for autumn. It looks great with everything. I would love if you checked out my blog Sammi.
