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!

My Hair Accessories

Today I had a good re-organise of my jewelry and hair accessories. I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to do a post on all my accessories as promised from day 19 of the  30 days of fashion challenge.

Although, I have a lot of hair pieces I am a bit of a hoarder and these are from many years of being in the alternative fashion scene and having big crazy hair styles. There are also quite a few handmade pieces which will hopefully inspire you to make your own.

Style Me… Nu-Goth

I have created a challenge for myself to look into, learn and play around with different alternative styles, Style Me Thursdays. Every Thursday I thought it would be fun to look into a different style. I think as well as learning about new fashions I will also be add new things to my own wardrobe. My own style changes a lot I find myself buying things that I like rather than fitting in with a certain aesthetic. I am also going make an item of clothing or accessory that will go with that style.

So today I am going to look into a relatively new fashion style….
