Haha, I love writing reviews ^^ !
I don't have a lot of time to write today, so I'll do a timeline for once :). Let's go !
(Oh, I know it changes depending the countries, so when I write the dates it's DD/MM/YYYY ^_^ !)
16/03/2011 : I placed my order for those beauties, they were my dreamshoes for more than a year ! I was sooo happy to find them on CLOBBA ! You know you can't order them directly on Secret Shop anymore u_u...
21/03/2011 : They sent my package. The shipping cost was only $16, but the tracking is not very good (the last update was on the 29th).
04/04/2011 : Received a notification that the mailman came, but I missed him. Too bad.
05/04/2011 : Took the package ♥ ! Now, you surely want to see what I received (yes, you do è_é) ? Time for pictuuuures ♫ !
Looks like a gift wrap, I know x)...
Very well protected :D ! No damage inside and outside !
Elegant shoes' box isn't it ? I never noticed before that there was a crown on the emblem of Secret Shop, fortunately, it was a crown without cross (phew ! I would have to re-sell them if it was the case ;_; !).
Because there's never enough bubble wrap xD...
Oh, I almost forgot them ! The gel half-soles in the case the shoes would be painful... They were only 1$, in France, they would be at least 5-10€ ¬_¬'...
Yeeaaaaah /(è3é)/ ! Cutest shoes ever are MIIIINE :D ! The photos don't do them justice u_u...
I didn't exepect them to be that high but higher is better :D ! They are not totally white but off-white (I wanted them to be off-white, so it's OK). Totally white shoes don't exist I think x) !
The material's quality is faaar better than *an*tai*na shoes ! I can say this my touching it !
Noooow, the moment that you all waited for... The shoes worn ! Will they fit ? That's the question I had in mind when I was going to wear them because when you order those shoes, the sizes are S, M, L, etc. But I never had to buy shoes by using this system, so I took M (23,5 cm I think, I'm usually a 38 in European size)... I was affraid to be wrong on the size... BUT ! The Great Lolita Spirit (those who have read Shaman King will understand ;-D ! after all I discovered Lolita because of this manga) was by my side (for once ==')...
I was perfect ! And even something like 0,4cm too big (better too big than too small ^_~ !) ! But the Great Lolita Spirit wanted to trick me... I couldn't fasten (good verb :/ ?) the straps ! I tried and retried, I couldn't do THAT ! I tried to fasten them in all the positions my body could do, those *%$§@+/! didn't want to obey... When the GLS (Great Lolita Spirit) finished to play with my poor nerves, he decided to help me and to give me and idea !
I just had to put the buckle in the lower notch of each strap :D ! It worked !
As you can see, they are a little too big for me but it will be OK with soles ^.^ !
Quality : 5/5 no manufacturing defect !
Price : 5/5 : they worth it !
Now, a quick review of CLOBBAONLINE !
They are absolutely adorable ♥ ! Very nice, replies were fast, explain everything you want to know !
I don't know what to add, they are awesome and I will order again from them !
Shipping : 4,5/5 : A little bit long and odd tracking, but it's not their fault, and since it was cheap, it's OK :D !
Communication : 5/5 : perfect !
Order process : 5/5 : simple as pie (<< love this expression ! in French, it's "simple as hello" ^^) !
Overall : 5/5 : very satisfied ! I have to order the same pair of shoes in pink (because it's a strange pink, the only one that would be OK for my IW skirt, so I have no choice), and I'll be glad to buy it from them ^_^ !
That's it for today :D ! Feel free to ask everything you want/need, but read the review before =='. I like answer questions but not when it's something I said in the review...
P.S. : Sorry for my English, but :
1 - I'm not a native speaker;
2 - I had to use unknown words so I hope it's understable;
3 - I'm sick so I have difficulties to speak/think/write even in French x) ! Sorry !
