About the sneaky little tricks: I'd already decided not to trust the mirrors but something else irked me so bad. Vanity sizing. They've definitely gotten in on it. I went from a size 3 in everything else to 00 with them! That's how I was able to get them so cheap--they were one of the only sizes left. I think the numbers discouraged other people from paying them much attention but in fact if they had tried them on and were under a size 5 at all they probably would have fit.
If there's an Express near you they've probably still got some to clear out and now you've got an extra little hint about the crazy sizing. 2 of mine were like W01 or something. The other was a white pair.
