I've been seeing a lot of queries about Momo's lately in this comm, so when I got my order today I decided to write up a review. As you probably know, Momo's is an ebay store with cheaply-priced knockoffs. I took a gamble and ordered from them, not expecting anything phenomenal. And, basically, I got what I paid for. The only thing is they really do rape you on shipping. I don't think it's necessary to charge as much as they do. :/



The shoes are obviously not made of leather or anything; they feel like plastic or something but they are sturdy enough. I'm actually fairly pleased with them. They were awfully cheap after all, and since I'm only wearing them for show, it's not like they have to be able to climb any mountains. :P They're cute and comfortable, they fit nicely, and they're easy to walk in. Just don't get Momo's shoes if you are planning on using them hardcore. If you want shoes that will hold up nicely for years, I really think it's a better idea to invest in brand, but I don't expect to wear white often enough for brand shoes to be worth it.



The coat, on the other hand, surprised me quality-wise. It's actually quite nicely made, with pink, fully-lined wool, and fuzzy white cuffs. The only qualm I have with it is the buttons; they feel cheap because they are backed in plastic. But when you are wearing them, you can't tell. The buttonholes are also kind of frayed but, again, once it's on you it's not really a problem. They tailored the coat to fit me and it really does fit quite snug and well. It also flares in order to accomodate heavy-duty skirts/petticoats (below I am wearing a double-layer petti with a cordoruy AP skirt under the coat). It also looks fine if you are not wearing anything bulky (i.e. if you wanted to wear it with casual jeans). It came with a cute little capelet to wear over the shoulders of the coat, but that is not really my style.
HOWEVER, it's quite different from the pictures they had on their site (which were stolen  brand photos). For that reason, I am considering selling the coat.



I hope that helps anyone considering purchasing from Momo's. If you have any other questions about the products, I'd like to answer them; I know everyone likes to be informed before they buy something. _D_
