APB! Loose Reins Boots - Found - Thank you LC of Bella Seattle!

I must have these for my Birthday.  And LC got me the connection.
If anyone sees these boots please comment or email with store number to lauramartinsemail@yahoo.com. 
Loose Reins Boots - by Miss Albright - style #18359554 - Prefer Size 8, can wear 8.5


I stayed up all night.  I had my Wish List loaded with only the Loose Reins Boots.  There were only 3 pairs in size 8.  No 8.5.  I guess I have a slow trigger finger.  The nearest store is 2 hours away and they don't have shoes. The next store is a good 4 hours in LA traffic.

If anyone sees these boots please comment or email at lauramartinsemail@yahoo.com with the store name and number.  If you can put them on hold even better.  I am still home sick so I will be watching my email all day. I would be forever grateful.

PS:  Anthro is claiming the search system is down and will not search until tomorrow.  I can't blame them.

Anthro Sister Love, Laura

Laura, I recently ordered a dress and then got a cancellation e-mail. I immediately e-mailed customer service to ask for assistance in locating this dress. They responded 3 hours later with a list of 4 stores that had the dress in the size I was looking for. My suggestion is to e-mail CS and hopefully they will put you on the right path. :)

Laura said...

Thanks Loraine. Great idea.

Hi Laura, I might have a lead on an 8.5 for you. I put a pair on hold this morning with another item and when I called to pay for them they had misplaced them! So I am waiting for a callback, but in the meantime I put another pair on hold in case they couldn't find them. I'd rather get them from the first store because they're on my side of the country and I can get two items at once. If they find mine you can have the other pair! Also here was another store I was given as possibly having an 8.5 but I never was able to get through - Newport Beach 949.720.9946.

Laura said...

Thank you LC. I will give the Newport store a call since it's in CA. Please let me know if they find yours so I can call and get the other pair in case I can't get through to the Newport Beach store.

Thanks you many times over.

Hi Laura, I'm sending you an email with the hold info. They found my boots!

Oh yay, I'm glad you found them! They are so lovely. Also, on a selfish note, I barely resisted getting them, and I really want to see what they look like on someone else. I'll be keeping my eye out for them in stores...

Jamie said...

So glad LC was able to find the boots. They are marvelous! And how funny that I was planning to check tomorrow at that exact location!

Mandy said...

Yay Laura! So happy that you got them! They'll be lovely!

What a fantastic story: LC found you your boots! Aren't you regularly amazed how all these strangers help each other out based on shared love of a store?? I am! Oh--and LC helped ME find an unfindable cardi a few days back. She is a VERY helpful stranger. :)

I look forward to seeing you wearing the boots!

greatbleuheron,

She is wonderful! As so many are in the Anthro Community. We are lucky to have a forum where complete stranger that share a love for a store can give and get info. LC and I tend to purchase the same items. She was trying to get the same boots in the same size and had a number of leads. Hopefully some day I can return the favor when she needs help. On days like these when CS is swamped, you can ask for a store search by emailing anthro@anthropologie.com.
