Secret Shop Ankle Boots review

Yes, I'm doing another review! 2 in 2 days is quite a lot for me but I did receive 2 packages almost at the same time so this is the second one.

Those boots kinda have a big story behind them. It was quite an adventure to get them.
Let me explain...

I pre-ordered these boots a year ago on
I chose the pink and white ones at that time. I do wish I had chosen the black ones, my taste and needs kinda changed in a whole year.

Everything that happenned wasn't the sellers fault. It was the manufacturer first. They took a whole year before beginning to produce the boots. So they were only shipped to me a month and a half ago. And as you can guess, the shipping was REALLY slow because there was some problem with Canada post at the time. So it basically took a bit more than a year to receive them.
But that isn't the shop's fault of course. They did their job and were very nice with me, answering my questions every time I had one within 24 hours.

On with the actual product now!

They look really cute. But I had forgotten that lolita boots quality is usually pretty bad compared to regular boots that you buy in stores. They're not meant to wear for a long time or in the snow. They aren't really comfortable but at least they are my size and fit me. I don,t feel really stable on these heels, I'm afraid they will break, but that might just be because I'm not used to them. I'll give them a try soon to see if they can support me correctly.

 I have nothing bad to say about the bow and heart jewel, it's really cute and it's one of the reasons why I wanted those boots.

The fur is removable. But that is kind of a problem in my opinion. There isn't any zipper on the fur. You have to slide it past your foot and put the boot on, then slide it on the top of the boot. It's quite laborious and complicated. You cannot be in a hurry if you want to put them on with the fur. The fur isn,t large enough for my feet, even though the boots are the right size so I have some difficulties sliding on the fur. I don't have problems to take the fur off though.

As you can see they are from secret shop. I'm guessing the quality is very close to the original AP ones. I wouldn't pay more than what I paid for them since they aren't that good quality so I'm good with the replicas.

That,s what they look on me. I don't have the right socks on so it's a bit awkward. They are a bit big all around, but I have very narrow so it's the case with almost every shoe there is.

I do have a little complain about the fur though. I bought faux fur at the fabric shop where I work for a few bucks and wanted to compare it with the boots' fur. I'm disapointed in the fur they used for the boots It looks cheaper than what it looked like on the official picture. I really wanted a fluffy type of fur. I might remake the fur toppers and glue the bows to them. I might also add a zipper or velcro so they can be removed more easilly.

I give them a 3.5/5
I'm not including the shipping and factory delays because it wasn't the seller's fault at all.

Wednesday, 12 December 2012 review - Positive

Hi lovelies!

It's been quite a long time since the last time I posted a review on here. Well today I received my jewelry order from I was pretty excited since today is my birthday and it was a nice gift to receive it that exact date (12/12/12 is an awesome date number don't you think?).

So on with the review!

The package arrived around a week and a half after it was posted to me. It came with a tracking, which is quite handy!

Everything arrived in a tiny tiny box. I didn't know it could fit all in there, but it did! Everything was very well packaged in journal sheets and plastic bags. A necklace even had 2 plastic bags, one for the chain and one for the pendant. Needless to say that everything made it here in one piece and in perfect shape.

I ordered 5 things from Cnsfashion. I'll review each piece separately with pictures of both the website and of my own to compare.

1. Dreamy Solomon Moon Pendant Necklace (blue)  

Price - 4.99$

Website picture:

My pictures:

I'm really surprised by the quality of this necklace, it is definitly good quality. The sparkle of the stones is simply beautiful. I'm happy I took the blue one, it has a bit more difference between the colors than the pink one. It's well worth its price and it even looks better than the website's picture in real because of the sparkles! The chain seems study and has some nice detailing.

Note: 5/5

2. Cute Enamel Kitten Cat Earring Necklace Set

Price - 2.99$

Website picture:

My pictures:

This one is really cute and simple. I love how it came as a set with the earrings for this cheap price. After inspection, I don't see any default whatsoever. The quality is a bit lower than the Solomon necklace, but that's understandable since the price is also lower and you get earrings with the necklace. So, more for less!
Note - 4/5

3. Sweet Pave Red Crystal Heart Bow Drop Dangle Earrings

Price - 5.99$ 

Website's picture:


My picture:

Again they are exactly like the ones on the website's picture: tiny, cute and sparkly! They are sweet and elegant at the same time, which works both for lolita or at my job. There's no stone missing and they are great quality. But I'll need to be careful with the delicate stone chain because it can tangle easily when you try to put them on. Once worn though it's not a problem.

Note: 4.5/5

4. Cute Critter Alligator Earring Ring Set

Price - 3.99$

Website's picture:


My pictures:

After earrings and necklace set, why not a ring and necklace set? I really love this one! I'm in love with those little  lolita-esque alligators. The ring is big and has an elastic band as you can see on the last picture. It's really handy since it can fit a variety of sizes and it's quite comfortable for the ring's size; I could see myself wearing it at work. I usually have problems finding rings that suits my finger size, but this one is a perfect fit! Again I'm glad that this comes as a set. If there was a necklace available, I would definitely want it to complete the collection. 

Note: 5/5

5. Loverly Color Rhinestone Octopus Stud Earrings

Price - 4.99

Website's picture:


My pictures: 

Last but not least, those pink little octopus earrings (and yes they are holding a red gun ahah). I've been eyeing those for a long time now on ebay I'm glad I finally got a pair. I do want the necklace and ring that exist too, but that'll be for another time. I know that they were originally produced by Betsey Jonhson, but I don't know if these are a replica or the real ones because the quality seems to be the same and the design is too. They are very small, cute and sparkly. This picture is taken from VERY close because they are so tiny; I'm surprised that the details are so well executed since it's hard to work with a surface that small. They're perfect if you just want a little sweetness on your ears and can't wear heavy or long earrings, which can become quite a burden in some situations.

Note: 5/5

Overall verdict

It was pleasure to deal with I received my items quickly and all in one piece because of the tight and individual packaging. Navigating on the website was easy and the pictures were more than accurate.

The staff was nice to me and I was quickly updated on the tracking as soon as they got it.

The prices are definitely fair, I could even say that the items are underpriced in some cases. Shipping also becomes free when you order over 15$, what more could be asked?

Overall, my experience was very pleasant and I will definitely order from them again!  

Final note: 4.5/5
