My mother took DD shopping for her graduation outfit and reminded DD to keep it all safe from our puppy which chews everything at the moment. About 5 min ago i heard DD start crying because she had left the shoes out and well puppy, shoes i think u can imagine.  Mum is already on at us over this dog and you know what will hit the fan if she finds out what happened.

Apart from asking mm where she bought the shoes from is there anyway of finding out and buying another pair?  They are a black strappy small wedge heel.  I have 4 weeks to cover up.  Oh and yes the new pair will be coming out of DD's savings...this isnt the first time something precious has been lost wrecked etc because she hasnt taken care of it.

Do they have a brand on them?

Is the brand printed in the sole of the shoe or is their a price tag with the shop name on the box. If it is a recog usable brand (eg Dianna ferrari, Sandler).  You could check at Mathers, Myer, Williams. You could also try googling the brand and looki g up the stockings on their website. if it is not a recognisable brand you could check those cheap shoe shops (eg Payless).

Yes, post a pic but also do a google search on the brand and style name if it has one. You may find the shop or even be able to buy them online

Honestly?  Just buy her another pair that you see fit - if your Mum says anything, just say she grew out of them.

Has happened almost overnight in this household!

It looks like there was a brand there at some stage??

Meh! 10yo DD is a ladies 10.  They can always grow.  Then just wear the size off.

Or the shoes rubbed her feet and hurt. LOL

I need to head to bed now, but if you can try and work out if they are leather or synthetic - it might give a starting point.

Or... maybe ask your Mum where she got them from, cause you would like a pair too original.gif

She may have got them secondhand. Oh dear.

Are both shoes chewed or just the one? Looks like it might be repairable if it's only the straps.

Ask your mum where she got them as dd loves them and they are super comfy, so you want to see if they have any other colours available!

If you cant see the brand then your mum has Op shopped them and they are second hand so not this seasons shoes.  Either that or they are an old pair of your mums.  Can yyou see if they are scuffed / worn on the bottom.

I would just get DD another pair she liked and then tell your mum that DD was wearing the ruined pair around the house and they hurt (which they could if  you arent used to all the straps).   Tell her later that it was almost a good  thing that they hurt DD as the dog got hold of them.


Or tell your mum the truth and find out how much they cost and where she  got them from so 1) you can get another pair and 2) DD can pay her nan back.

If it was me I would be making DD pay her nan for the cost of the shoes either way.

Sorry to hear OP. All I can suggest is, go to Myer today, they have 25% discount on shoes!

#19 LookMumNoHands

Posted 24 November 2012 - 06:33 AM

I'd take them to a shoe repairer. Have you got one nearby?

Either that, or just tell your mum the truth and ask her. My mum would be the same as yours... I'd get the whole lecture about the puppy, she'd huff and puff, but eventually get over it.

If u knew my mum the suggestion of op shop shoes would have u peeing yourself with laughter....  Nothing wrong with op shop.  Its one of my favorite bargain hunting places but my mother would see it as tacky.  DD also has an OCD phobia about other peoples germs being on 2nd hand things.  More than likely if anything has worn off it's from DD sneakily wearing them.  We do have a shoe repair place so will ask him,  it's in one of the 2 shopping centers I'll have to look in anyway.  Oh and DD will be paying for the shoes out of her savings.  She's not happy as she asked a friend to the movies today and now won't have the money to go.

They look pretty similar to styles I've seen in Target and Spendless/Payless shoes. I'd say you've got a good chance of finding something at least very similar, if not exactly the same. And if your mother does a close enough inspection to tell the difference, then that's just weird Tounge1.gif

Good luck

Just buy her a new pair & say nothing, if your Mum asks just say that they hurt her feet'.

Either tell her the truth ( your really still that scared of your mum?) because sh*t happens and you are already getting your dd to pay for a substitute.

Or say they were misplaced.

Sure your mum is going to me annoyed but she is going to have to understand that children will occasionally stuff up and her not liking your dog is irrelevant.

It's your dog, your family.

She needs to get over it.
