Haul: Iron Fist Boots and T-Shirt review

On an ebay bender (it all started with me losing a Madame Spike auction) I bought myself some Iron Fist.

Iron Fist Women’s Buzz Killer T-Shirt, US$12.38 at ebay.com

Iron Fist Women’s Tigre and Bunny Boots in Turquoise, US$29.62 at ebay.com

Shipping: There was combination shipping, I paid a total of $27 for shipping from the US.  I received the items really quickly; I ordered on the 14th and received them on the 18th!

The shirt: Really soft 100% cotton fabric, and the print is as the stock picture.  The hems are unfinished except for the collar.  The actual shirt has deliberate holes all over it – nicks in the collar, around the edge of the sleeves and body, as well as below the print and on the back.  This isn’t really obvious on the model, but they are now super obvious after I washed the shirt.  I don’t mind it, I just didn’t expect it to have that many.

The boots: They are pain.  Pain embodied in a high-heeled turquoise cowboy boot.  There is some superficial padding in the middle of the sole, exactly where feet are least likely to touch/press on the sole of a shoe, and even just standing creates bolts of pain shooting up the heel of my foot.  Definitely going to get some gel pads for the heel and balls of my feet before I even contemplate being able to go out in these.

The colour is the same as the stock photo, although with less inner glow.  Depending on the lighting, they can look grass green to a darkish sky blue in a photo with the same amount of light in the same room.

This didn’t occur to me until after I placed the order, but the shirt and the boots were likely to be factory seconds or excess stock; the shirt doesn’t seem defective in any way to me, but the boots have dried glue on them.  Most of it would be unnoticeable to people who aren’t wearing them, but otherwise yes, it was the first thing I noticed when I took them out of the box.  I could spend some lonely Friday nights picking it off… but instead I will be working to pay off all these gorgeous but financially/podiatrically silly shoes.
