Rose Chocolate review (premier ballerina RHS)

Hey guys, now that I've successfully trekked around a variety of terrains for 13 hours, I feel qualified enough to post a review of the Rose Chocolate premier ballerina rocking horse shoes, as well as a review of the service in general.


First up, Rose Chocolate as a business. I organised a group order involving 4 pairs of shoes, a petti and a pair of bloomers, and it took almost 4 weeks to get our purchases after I paid them. Their English is atrocious and it takes a bit of guesswork to understand what exactly they mean. I didn't get an EMS tracking number, even though I emailed them requesting for one after seeing my order status magically change from 'money received' to 'shipping completed'. The package arrived within the 4 days they said it would, though, and they did not forget anything - possibly because every time I emailed them I included my order number as well as a list of the things I had ordered.

Despite all these issues, though, I would totally order from them again, finances permitting. I'd suggest a strict regimen of emailing them once a week, because eventually they will reply (my last email from them had an enthusiastic "YES! You can received your shoes As Soon As.").

Now, the Rose Chocolate shoes ^_^ I posted my pictures here on oz_lolita. I ordered the 24.5cm premier ballerina rocking horses after measuring a penciled outline of my foot from big toe to heel (exactly 24.5cm as well), and it arrived very true to size and very comfortable, with enough space to wriggle my toes in. I don't have wide feet, though. The cork makes for very comfortable walking, and even wearing them without socks didn't get me blisters. My only issue is still those damn straps and how to keep them up! I have to run out and get some kind of adhesive, but in the mean time, I've been tying them around my ankles. Unfortunately, RC's straps are pretty thick, and wrapping them around your ankles doesn't make for pretty pictures. Feel free to ask me anymore questions regarding RC and/or these shoes and I'll do my best to answer them.

Finally, something slightly off topic - I got my first 'Mary' comment today! I was walking home alone after a concert, and this guy in a generic baseball hat tilted to one side and boxers hanging out of his pants walked up to me and said "hey Mary!" as if that would be enough to make me reevaluate my fashion sense. I looked at what he was wearing and decided to stick to lolita, seriously. We did get very nice and positive comments from people earlier in the day, though! One nice old guy with a moustache stopped me to say we looked absolutely beautiful, which was lovely.
