* I have my Bodyline set to U.S Currency, however, I reside in Australia.
Eyelashes aren't particularly exciting (plus these were only $1 each). If you want to read the little blurb I wrote about them / see more photographs then you can read this post at my blog.
The Rocking Horse Shoes:
These shoes are a Japanese 23.5 (displayed as 235 on Bodyline's website) which are equal to an Australian size 6. I not only used various size conversion tables on the internet, but I quickly measured my foot to ensure that length wise it would fit. I was relatively unsure how they would be size-wise, however, I'm glad to report they fit like a dream. I have yet to experience any pinching what so ever. The ribbon is removable and I do not require it to hold the shoe onto my foot (as you might if the shoe was slightly too big). The ribbon can be removed and the metal loops folded down, out of sight, for a different look.
Bodyline advertises the heels to be 7.6cm. My boyfriend was curious to know how tall they were and after measuring them (I measured along the line created by the cut out wedge), I am left to think this is fairly accurate.
I could find no flaws in the soles of the shoes. Everything appears to be firmly attached and there is no rough edges, dents or weird marks. For some reason the number '3-' was written on the sole of either shoe (on the bottom of the wedged out part) in silver glittery pen. I have no idea why this would be but am left to assume that it has to do with ensuring that pairs of the same shoe don't get mixed up.
The bow on the front of the shoe also appears to be attached firmly. After peaking underneath it I discovered that there are a least a few stitches attaching it to the shoe (at first I thought it may have just been glued on). These stitches are definitely not noticeable unless you're holding the shoe up to your face and lifting up the bow to see how it joins. The only odd thing about the bow is that if you flip the shoe over, the "tails" of the bow (no idea how to describe it, I don't mean the actual bow shape, I mean the second layer underneath the bow) are white/creamy underneath. Again, this is not noticeable. The only way someone would see while you were wearing them, is if you were doing handstands with these shoes on (and were able to remain incredibly still while doing these handstands).
As mentioned before, the ribbons are removable. This means you can experiment with how you lace them up or what colour ribbon you use. You could even remove the ribbons entirely.
I am incredibly satisfied with this purchase. I feel the transaction time was very reasonable (under 7 days), particularly since I am assuming they would have a reasonable amount of orders due to their November special. I am over the moon about the quality and feel that it is easily worth the money I paid for it. They also passed the 'mum inspection' - she thought they were cute and agreed they were of a decent quality. My little sister thought they were very cute as well and added "They look like Lolita shoes". I was quite surprised she had even heard of the time Lolita, haha.
I would have no problem recommending these shoes to someone looking to buy them. I'm very satisfied with them.
Thank you for reading! I hope this was helpful to someone. If you have any questions in regards to these shoes, or desire a picture of a specific part of the shoe, then please drop me either a line here, on my blog review of these shoes or in my tumblr ask (anon is on). I'll get back to you as soon as I see it.
