Dear Jeffrey Campbell,
Please, I beg you to help me. Bring back the Wrecker. I must have this shoe. I don’t know if I can live without it. This is why:
I recently moved to LA for work in the PR, marketing, graphic design, photography and (fingers crossed) fashion industry. I grew up in a small town. After college I lived in Beijing and completed a 10-month internship with an advertising/design agency. Overseas I fell in love with photography and head-over-heels for fashion. My internship ended and I went from a city of 20 million to a city of 200,000. But all wasn’t lost.
My crappy town turned out to be a diamond in the rough. Besides the copious amounts of “beat up” photo locations, thrift shop prices couldn’t be beat. Girlfriends and I found amazing vintage tees, jeans, accessories, even fur jackets for only dollars. Imagine lace tops, high-waist Levi’s and wolf shirts. I even purchased a Dior tie at Goodwill for only one dollar. While I may thrift my clothes, I invest in my heels. I’ve always wanted a knock-em-dead pair of Jeffrey Campbell heels. Today should have been my day…
Why? I received a fat deposit on PayPal from my first paying blog advertiser. As a fashion, photo, travel and design blogger, what else would I possibly spend my money on? I must purchase Jeffrey Campbell shoes. I called my best girlfriends (whom I call the Trifecta) and they agreed, get some killer kicks.
I combed site after site. I shopped Nasty Gal, SOLESTRUCK, Revolve Clothing, Free People, Karmaloop, Lulu’s, Shopbob, everywhere. I liked the Lita’s, Foxy’s (Black and Wood), Cherie’s, One O One’s, 99 Tie’s and Polly’s. But then I saw the Wrecker’s. Instantly I knew, I must own that shoe.
By process of elimination, since I don’t wear brown and grey has gold hardware, the black leather Wrecker is my dream Jeffrey Campbell shoe. The 5.5 inch heel and two inch platform is perfect. Skinny straps cover the boot, with 13 alternating square and circle silver buckles. The Wrecker would catch even a straight guy’s attention. Jeans, dresses or shorts. Dressed up or dressed down. These are the shoes I have to have.
So what could be the problem? Absolutely every store carrying the Wrecker is sold out of a size six. Trust me, I called. I called customer service, I called retailers and I considered calling International. Prices ranged from $198 to $275. Even with the almost $100 price increase, I considered it. But alas, and for the sake of my pocketbook, all sites are sold out.
I looked at other sites for other shoes and in my eyes, none of them compared to the Wrecker. It’s all I can think about. It’s consumed my mind. I must own these shoes. They would look amazing in my photos and in my closet. My wardrobe is 99.9 percent black and silver. It’s a match made in shoe heaven.
The Wrecker is the most amazing heel I’ve ever laid eyes on and I’m begging you, for the sake of my shoe shopping sanity, make another round. Thank you.
