Today was a lazy day at home~. All I did today was stare at my computer screen, walk around my house, study, and eat! While playing around on the computer, I figured I should make a post reviewing my most recent purchases.
Okay! so my Bodyline coat:
(see the weird bulge? orz;;)
It's surprisingly warm, first off! Wearing it keeps me nice and toasty. I've worn it out in snow and at 6:00 in the morning (coldest 14 degrees F) and stayed warm. I was worried it couldn't keep me warm in crazy weird Georgia weather, but it has proven me wrong. However, it's not layering friendly. When you use more than one or two waistbands underneath it, the midsection bulges a bit ;~;. Also, I've already had one button fall off and the others are a bit loose. The hook that secures the capelet also seems like it'll come off soon. But of course, these are all easily fixable. Other loose threads and normal Bodyline flaws are around too, but usually easily fixed or nothing to really fret over.
Overall, it's a 5/5 for ordering through Bodyline (shipping is always prompt, easy to deal with, no problems, etc, etc. The norm.)
and a 4.6/5 for the coat (I really wish it didn't bulge x~x)
Next off, my tea parties!
I bought the light pink Secret shop Tea Parties from Clobbaonline via pre-order in September, and after the release date getting constantly delayed, they finally came! Clobbaonline was wonderful to order from, and I would definitely order from them again and recommend them. They always responded very fast to questions and sent out emails to let me know about the release date extensions. The shoes finally shipped out on December 11th and arrived the 22nd or 23rd (I wasn't home when they got here;;). The tracking sucked, but thats not clobbas fault xD.
About the actual shoes:
The bows on the front of the shoes look a bit rushed. Instead of a folded bow like in the stock picture above, the bow is just two rectangles sewn together. It's easy to see the underside of the bows when worn (at least that's what my mirror tells me. My mirror is at an angle though.). That bothers me just a little bit and it's definitely worth noting. I'm not sure if they all come like that or I just got unlucky ;^;. Also, there is no Secret Shop logo on the inside heel (not sure of the correct term;;) so there is no way to tell what brand the shoes are, which strikes me as a bit odd. The color is also a bit darker than than pictured, so be prepared!
I give Clobbaonline a 5/5 for their awesome service :3.
And I give the Tea Parties a 3.7/5 because the awkward bow really does annoys me. xD
I hope I helped you guys out if you wanted to order these items through either places! ;u;
