Sweater: Madewell, Skirt: Zara, Shoes: Oasap, Bag: Alexander Wang, Bracelets: Forever 21, Tiffany&Co, c/o Poshlocket, BaubleBar, David Yurman, Eswera

These shoes are my first and last purchase from Oasap.com. I rarely review sites on here but I feel this experience deserves a rant.

Firstly, Oasap.com is RIDICULOUSLY expensive for a place that doesn't sell any type of brand. I know there's a huge stigma behind "brand name" clothing, and I'm not trying to say that some brand-less sites* (such as Sheinside.com) aren't good. But this site is one of those that just doesn't nail it.
*money saving suggestion: only purchase from these type of sites if it is recommended by someone. 

So, after paying a fortune for these shoes, they come delivered to me in a completely different color than what I ordered. I mean, the shoes I'm wearing here were not what was pictured (or described) when I clicked purchase. And yes, I read the drop down list and selected the color that matched the picture. STILL, I managed to get a completely different shoe.

Oasap's solution to the problem? Send me a 20% off coupon for my next purchase (which will never happen).
What I would have liked?
How about the correct pair of shoes?

And the icing on the cake? These shoes were worn once (as pictured above) and after a day of walking in them, the sole has completely come unglued and the cork part has smushed (that is a professional term).

Listen, I know I ain't no stick, but damn, I was hoping these shoes could support my weight.

I'm sure that Prada's wedges would not do the same.

My verdict?

Unless you're receiving free clothing from Oasap as a blogger, don't waste your time OR money on this site.

Can you teach me how to do my eye makeup like this? I want that bronzy look.

Do a makeup tutorial and help us clueless folks. Your lipstick is always killer too.

Such an interesting combo. Tan and blue striped skirt. Obsessed with the cool things you put together.

loving the short sleeved sweater thing lately too. used to hate them, but your'e converting me

Oh, can I just add how much I love your blatantly honest review?

"unless you're getting free stuff, don't order"


so good.

It's not about the weight at all! A quality shoe should last no matter the climate or the amount of time its worn, that's why we pay a fortune. Thank you for this post, I'm going to keep it in mind if I ever buy something from Oasap.
