Iron Fist Daytime Sleeper Creeper Review /Unboxing

It is my 8 year anniversary with my fiancee! ūüėÄ As a treat he gave me a lovely gift of these shoes that I have been eyeing up, the Iron Fist Daytime Sleeper Creepers. My boyfriend actually managed to get these in the sale at only ¬†¬£35.99 rather than the original price of ¬£52.99. Also if you sign up to their newsletter you get an extra 15% off. Which¬†pretty much pays off the delivery fee and cheeky VAT that they add at the checkout.

Iron Fist Daytime Sleeper Creeper Review

This box was covered in gray plastic, but my boyfriend removed that and wrapped in wrapping paper. IronFist has very pretty packaging  and its all nicely wrapped with branded tissue paper. There is also scrunched up cardboard paper inside the shoes to keep their structure.

Gorgeous shoes!¬†I don’t mind paying a bit extra when you get shoes that have pushed the design and you get something unique and interesting. Added details on these shoes are the brogue design looks like bats. There are attached bat wings and the sole is coffin shaped.

Pros:

  • A unique shoe, I have never seen anyone with these before.
  • Very sturdy although not too heavy as they use a thick foam for the sole.
  • Vegan ‘Leather’
  • Bat wings are removable and I could wear them on other shoes.

Cons:

  • They are a lot higher (1 1/2 inches ish) than normal creepers, so I will have to get a hang of walking in them.
  • The shoes needs a bit breaking in, especially the back as it rubs a little.
  • I did have a fault with the shoe…..
The Fault

The problem with my shoes was that I found a small nick on the underside of one of the bat wing.

My fiancee emailed the company and they responded straight away. They apologised profusely and said they would send me a new pair, no extra charge. Unfortunately there wasn’t a new pair in stock in my size. So, I could either send them back and get a full refund or get 20% refunded if I decided to keep them. I decided to keep them as the damage is really minimal, you couldn’t see it when worn and I still loved the shoes.

Although, there was problems with the shoe and it was disappointing. I cannot fault the staff for trying to fix the problem.

 

In conclusion I LOVE these shoes and cant wait till I feel confident enough in my walking abilities to wear them without falling over! I am currently wearing them around the house!

How to dress for an Interview? For Alternative Fashioned People

So you need to get a job but what are you going to wear for interview? Should I wear my hair in a teased back comb mess? Should I wear alternative clothes or buy a disgusting suit from Primark? These are questions that I was recently faced with whilst I was job hunting. I am sure these are also questions that you too have faced.

It is a hard choice you don’t want to hide your personality, but you cant sit around brooding in your amazing clothes forever either. Unless you get an ‘alternative’ job or one that is open¬†to different styles, then your going to have to bite the bullet and style yourself down.

What did I decide to do?

 

I do believe that you should dress smarter and more ‘normal’ when going for an interview. But wait! Don’t grab that hideous suit just yet. I think you should just tone down your style, so there is still a bit of your personality shining through.

Blouse: £10 Dorthy Perkins

Skirt:  £7 Cult

Black Patient Shoes: £10 Primark

I already owned these clothes.¬†I didn’t have to go and buy any ugly items I would never wear again. ¬†When these items are paired together they look very smart as well as showing some of my own style with the frilly collar and bow. ¬†So it is worth looking through the wardrobe you might have a blouse, skirt or trousers that would work well.

My hair was the hardest part. I love having my big backcombed hair, but first impression are important and it does look a bit of a mess. Instead I had my hair down with a bit of volume in and a cute bow to the side.

And…..I got the job! I¬†should soon be starting my new job as a museum assistant. Working in a museum is something I have always been interested in and love all the behind the scene collections. ¬†We also have a large collection of bones/fossils and a few taxidermy items…..AWESOME!
