How I Style My Belts- LeatherNGrain Review

It's belt-season and I want to talk a bit about my new belt from LeatherNGrain, a lovely shop that sells leather accessories for everyone. I have been purchasing a lot of sweater dresses and needed a belt, and this shop is the perfect brand for me, and I really want to show you guys what I got! 

A bit about the shop- LeatherNGrain is based in Latvia and they make the most gorgeous leather accessories that I've seen in a long time. They're gorgeous and beautiful and I'm so in love with them. Their belts are all elegant and stylish, and I've never seen anything quite like their designs! Take a look below at my latest wardrobe addition!

The belt that I got was this lovely Leather Handmade Tie Buckle-less Belt- this belt is gorgeous as it's made from real leather that comes in a black matte texture. The belt is extremely high quality and lovely, and would make an excellent gift for a loved one. I particularly love how this belt doesn't have belt loops which makes it extra convenient for lazy people like me.

In fact, the quality and design of the belt makes this one of the more unusual pieces in my wardrobe. The loop front design gives off a lovely feel, and the black belt is beautiful and elegant at the same time. I love the quality as you can truly feel that this belt can last for years. The belt is one of my favourite wardrobe pieces! I can use it around my waist so it's beautiful.

Overall, LeatherNGrain really creates impeccable and beautiful products. I'd give the product a 10/10 and I'd highly recommend checking their shop out!

The Best Interchangeable Heels- Mestrae Review

It's nearly Christmas and it's time for me to show you one of my favourite pairs of shoes ever. I received them during the summer as a gift and they're simply amazing. Why? It's because they're completely interchangeable and can be worn as heels and flats! The shoes that I'm going to talk about today is from this amazing brand called Mestrae, which operates in Europe and across the world. The brand sells interchangeable heels that can be worn with high heels, little wedges or comfy flats, and they're absolutely lovely.

A bit about the brand- Mestrae started from humble beginnings, and the idea originated from wanting to fulfill the needs and wants of the everyday woman, the mothers, the corporate climbers, the professional, the chef, the sisters and daughters, the modern woman who tries to do it all. The shop specialises in interchangeable heels that can be changed within a single click of a button, which means that you can switch from day to night in an instant. Best of all, all their designs are beautiful and some are vegan which means that no animals are harmed in the making! 

I got this lovely pair of nude Pippa heels- I chose this because it looked beautiful on the website and it had a lovely pointed heel which I loved. The Pippa heel are made from synthetic vegan leather which is great as it's more durable than real leather. It comes with a matching of flats cover (to wear as flat sandals) and 1 pair of 3.5 inch stiletto heels which isn't too high as I wanted it to look great at balls and weddings. Take a look below to see what their shoes are like in real life!

So how this works is that these shoes have a hidden button at the heels, which allows you to press on it. When you press, the heels come off with a click, and you have to slide in your new heels in the same way. As you can see below, I took some photos of how this works so you'd understand how easy it is for me to change my heels. I can foresee me wearing this to the office for work, and simply changing the heels during a client meeting or when I'm going to court. It's really easy for me to do, and it takes less than a few seconds for your shoes to completely transform!

The shoes arrived within a week or so of ordering from Europe, so that was incredibly fast. The packing is delightful and beautiful, and the heels came in a lovely dust bag with the brand's logo.

I literally gasped in shock when I unboxed the shoes. They are brilliant and looked exactly like the photo on their website, and the colouring and everything was pretty spot on. Nothing looked different than what I expected, and the shoe is made from an extremely beautiful vegan leather and colour. I love the design of these shoes since the straps are girly and feminine, and completely stylish too.

In terms of comfort, these are probably the most comfortable pair of pointed heels that I've ever had. The low heels were perfect for girls like me who always suffer from heel pains. The fit of the heels are perfect, since I got an EU 38 which was what the site helpfully suggested I get. I'd recommend sizing down though as their shoes tend to be on the larger side. The heels did not hurt at all when I walked in them for hours, and even when they did, I'd just switch back to the flats!

For the price, these shoes are really worth it. By all means, these shoes can be considered to be on the medium-end of prices, but the quality exceeds anything that I've ever imagined. When I opened it, it feels like I've gone to shoe heaven!

Aren't these shoes brilliant? I'd highly recommend checking out Mestrae if you're a girl like me who loves changing and customizing your shoes. Just think of all the possibilities with all the heels! It's always fun to get to realise your dream come true and own a pair of "ever-changing" shoes! Let me know what you think!

Most Stylish Backpacks For School - Babak 1995 Review

My schoolbag recently broke and I'm stuck- which backpack should I get for my school days? It's a tough decision, as I need something super strong, waterproof and able to withstand the harsh winter weather in the UK. Most of the leather bags that I've encountered on the market are bulky or too heavy, and not really suitable for women. In fact, I used to own many faux leather bags because they are smaller and lighter than the real leather ones. However, they all broke down after a few months of heavy use as they're simply too weak!

I recently saw this amazing brand called Babak, this lovely shop that manufactures leather accessories and backpacks for men and women. They are an Etsy shop and you can find lots of different items on their site!

A bit about the brand- Babak is a family business which specialises in crafting leather bags, totes, handbags, clutch bags, crossbody and messenger bags, purses, backpacks, rucksacks, knapsack, packsack, laptop bag, wallets and other full grain leather bags. Their brand began in 1995 from a small workshop. Their craftsmanship are highly valued by their customers for more than 20 years. Their items are all handmade and lovely, and their handiworks are in-demand with many people thanks to the quality and usage of exclusively natural materials. It's simply one of the best brands that I've seen!

I recently replaced my old schoolbag with this Black Leather Handmade Unisex Backpack.  The bag arrived in a beautiful package with a lovely box, and the backpack looked even more amazing than the photo. In terms of the size, this backpack is suitable for men and women, so it's quite a decent size. It's 14.6 inches in height and it's pretty sturdy and solid. The size means that I can fit my laptop perfectly, as well as several textbooks and my clothing all in one go without carrying an extra bag. I just hate carrying different backpacks around, and this backpack is the optimal size for me.

babak backpack, babak 1995 backpack review, babak1995 review, babak1995 etsy, babak1995 reviews, babak brand, babak leather, babak1995 blog review, babak brand russia

As for the quality, I'm extremely happy with Babak's lovely black backpack. The backpack is made from full grain "pull up" leather, which is a type of leather that has additional oil added to it during manufacture and then sprayed on the surface together with wax as part of the finish operation. The result is a smooth, shiny finish that is designed to lighten when stressed or stretched which results in an interesting worn in effect. The design is beautiful and the colour is absolutely stunning- a heirloom that I can pass on to my children!

In terms of the style and design, the backpack is absolutely stylish and one of the most fashionable backpacks that I've ever seen. The backpack does not have zips, but it has a really strong size strap, lovely inner pockets and front pockets. The backpack also has strong,thick straps and the inner compartments are unlined, which makes the backpack really beautiful to use as it's natural and quite "organic". The quality of Babak's bag is definitely better than any high-street brand that I've seen, as well as those designer brands that tend to be a disappointment for me.

babak backpack, babak 1995 backpack review, babak1995 review, babak1995 etsy, babak1995 reviews, babak brand, babak leather, babak1995 blog review, babak brand russia

The design is really beautiful and timeless. The fact that the backpack doesn't have a lining adds to the lovely, rustic feel of the backpack. The backpack also has an easy-to-carry top handle for handling, and their there's a lovely compartment on the outside. This means that I can carry the bag around using my arms easily, and it's really convenient for students like me.

I want to mention the quality of the leather. The leather is spectacularly beautiful, as the black colour is hand dyed using a lovely finish, which utilizes only natural materials and doesn‘t contain harmful chemicals. The backpack is shiny, lovely and is semi-waterproof as it can resist light drops of offer. It's so breathtaking and I'm so happy to be able to style it with my autumn clothing. The bag goes so well with my winter clothing, but will look equally stylish with summer clothes!

Overall, I love the Babak bag that I got this year. The brand's bags are excellent, impeccably designed and made using the best quality leather. It's suitable for men and women, and I'm able to wear it anywhere with my outfits. Best of all, it's a perfect size and can fit my essentials without overflowing! How amazing is that?

The Best Pushup Bra Ever- Upbra Review

So I've always been hugely insecure about my chest. Yes, that's right, I'm not afraid to admit it. I've unfortunately inherited the itty bitty titty committee genes and have been passed a seat on the committee by my parents. Nevertheless, when I heard of Upbra I was skeptical because they claim to give you cleavage without any surgery. Upbra designs special bras where you can get a natural looking cleavage by simply pulling on the tabs of the bras. They fasten along the bottom with hooks, and you can adjust the cups in whatever ways you want.

I ordered 2 bras from them. The first one was a T-shirt bra, which is a bra without removable straps. They also have a thicker base area so it fits pretty well across your chest. I also ordered their strapless bra, which claims to be the best strapless bra ever as it stays up all day!

Now, onto my review!

upbra, upbra blog, upbra does it work, upbra pushup bra, upbra review, upbra stay up bra review, upbra try, upbra video,

Effect: All in all, I am very happy with the UpBra's cleavage-making effect. Seriously, I feel like I actually have a cleavage now, although by no means is it amazing. I think I got the right size since I chose a 34B, and I'm a bit uneven up there so the pull in tabs work to my advantage. I can just pull one side more outwards than the other, and they even up my chests. I'm so happy!

Comfort: Both bras, especially the t-shirt bra, were extremely comfortable. Honestly, the Upbra strapless push up bra is one of the best bras that I have ever worn. I think I'd recommend you getting your average size for these babies. The plastic inside the bra also feels soft and comfortable. I am very happy with how comfortable these are, and they're very soft and feels great on your skin. I wouldn't have gotten a better bra. It's so soft and doesn't even feel like it has got stuff on the inside and along the side at all!

Style: The upbra is beautifully designed and super cute. The Upbra is super stylish and comes in 3 special colours: nude, black and white. I particularly love their nude colour because of how nude bras go well with any coloured shirts. It never shows through unlike black or white bras. I also happen to love wearing white. I also like the little heart-shaped details on the inside- seriously, aren't they cute?

Quality: These bras are probably one of the best quality bras I've ever owned. They're not cheap, but you can think of bras as a timeless investment. One of these bras can last you years, with everyday wear! I like to think of the Upbra as a wardrobe staple and I think that it is extremely well-made. Kudos to Upbra for making themselves so well-rounded in every way!

Overall, I'd definitely recommend Upbra to small-chested girls like myself. It really saved my life when it comes to outfits, and low-cut tops, and now I even get complimented on how nice my boobs look!

Their t-shirt bra is a godsend and feels uber comfortable. I also wear their bras pretty much everyday. I'm so glad I tried them out, and hope that my review helped you in choosing the right Upbra!

Dresses For The Sunshine- Juliet Dunn Review


Every once in a while, I discover a fantastic and unique brand which I absolutely cannot get enough of. This time round, the brand's called Juliet Dunn, and they're a lovely designer label that sells apparel for women designed and manufactured designed in the heart of London. What's unique about Juliet Dunn is that they use interesting and natural fabrics, and combine it with bohemian embroideries. The result is that every single one of their pieces is ethnic, yet modern at the same time. It's like the best of the traditional and the new!

A bit about the brand- Juliet Dunn is a luxury resort and beachwear brand and your ultimate summer wardrobe. It was created with a vision to combine east meets west and bohemian meets fashion. They inspire women to live the best of their lives with their amazing collection of ready to wear kaftans and designer cover ups. The brand is based in London, with no beaches but dreams of far flung temperate climates, inspiration is taken from everywhere and weaves through countless continents and spectrums of art and culture. The freshest designs and most luxurious fabrics hand crafted to help you create the essential getaway outfit. 

I think Juliet Dunn's elegant and relaxing style would fit the modern woman who loves a bit of femininity to their outfits. Their embroidered blouses are really bohemian but also quite sleek, and they fit on the body really well. I also love the fact that they have a lot of variety, for example they have off shouldered tops and long sleeved blouses which are perfect for both work and casual weekends off!

The first thing I got was the gorgeous Pink Silk Slip Dress with metallic detail- I was really attracted to this dress because of it's colour and pattern. Juliet Dunn's collections are always delicately designed, but this dress is probably the most intricate and detailed dress that I've seen in a long time. The panelled embroidery design, combined with a cool, geometric golden overlay, makes this cami dress an iconic piece in every woman's wardrobe. It's pretty perfect for work, or for drinks with the girls after a long, tiring day.

The luxurious colours and cute, flowy silhouette mean that this little dress is perfect for beach holidays or a casual night out. These cute little strappy dress can take you from beach to port to yacht and back again.

In terms of the quality and fit, this lovely dress is stunning and in top form. I got a UK size 8, and this fits me perfectly. Everything hugs at all the right places, and I love the fact that shift dresses don't have a tight, cinched waistline unlike other types of dresses. The overlay pattern really shines because of the "up and down" look of the shift dress, and it's really quite flattering on any skin tone! The quality, as always, is amazing. I don't think Juliet Dunn makes anything that isn't top-notch.

The second thing I got was the lovely Harem tousers with silver sequin embroidery- I wanted a slightly bohemian look and this pair of green trousers is exactly spot on in terms of being a balance of looking feminine and modern. Honestly, the trousers are made from pure cotton, which gives it a really cool, smooth texture which is perfect for both summer and winter months. What I found unique about this top was that it's actually a pair of trousers with an elasticated waist- this means that you can actually wear it with anything, be it a classy top or a dressy camisole and still feel fabulous without the restriction! It also has lovely pink embroidery and a flattering loose, relaxed feel, which really helps build a classic silhouette.

In terms of the fit and quality, again Juliet Dunn never lets me down. Just like the silk pink dress, this pair trousers is absolutely gorgeous and made with perfect craftsmanship. Each little detail is embroidered with care, and I can tell just from feeling it that it's high-quality and extremely durable. This is definitely my new favourite piece in my wardrobe!

Overall, I'd highly recommend checking out Juliet Dunn's lovely collection. It is elegant, casual and luxurious at the same time. I can't get enough of them!

Appreciating Appraisal Purpose: Valuing Antique Jewellery



C:\Users\GOYLE\Downloads\bruce-mars-564885-unsplash.jpg

Evaluation



Most people who are involved in the trading of antique jewellery will appreciate the need to have any items of jewellery they are thinking of purchasing properly valued by an expert before parting with their hard-earned cash. Of course, not only are there numerous professionals who deal in the buying and selling of antique or modern items of jewellery based in Australia, but also people who are new to this type of business. However, anyone who does need to have some antique jewellery appraised should make sure they take into account the purpose for evaluation so they can decide on an appraisal services to choose.


Indeed, if we are having what should turn out to be a very lucrative item of antique jewellery appraised before taking it to auction, it is certainly worth paying for the services of an appraiser that will go that extra mile for us -- even if he or she is quite pricey. In terms of thinking about why some people choose to have antique jewellery appraised, we may want to look at websites providing such information. One thing is for sure though, there are heaps of people who have jewellery appraised for insurance purposes.


Some of the main reasons for getting jewellery appraised for insurance are shown here:  

  • Value of jewellery is vital when buying insurance
  • Written appraisals are essential for providers of insurance
  • Appraisal value takes precedence over the cost of the jewellery
  • Insurance companies often require updated appraisals
  • Regular appraisals can help prove an insurance claim



People who are considering going to an auction with their jewellery would be advised to look for websites that give you more insight into successful ways of selling antiques.

One reason why it is always a good idea to have an update on an appraisal we may have had of our antique jewellery quite a while back is that the popularity of certain styles and period pieces can sometimes decrease or increase quite significantly. Of course, if the demand for a specific design of antique jewellery has dropped quite a lot, then we will need to have our out-of-favour item reappraised at least once. Purchasers unique antique pocket watches who are determined to get a certain amount of cash when they decide to sell these popular time pieces will need to make sure they use efficient appraisal services. However, just because there are plenty of highly-reputable firms specialising in the appraisal of antique watches and jewellery, it does not guarantee that we will be able to source one of the better choices in the area we are based in.


In some cases, people that have inherited an antique pocket watch or item of jewellery from a family member will only decide to have it appraised just so they can record its value before including it in their personal estate.


In Person

Although there have been numerous things we should do regarding the process of having antique jewellery appraised mentioned already, it is important to detail one thing we most definitely should not do if we hope to have a proper appraisal of our items. Indeed, even though it might be fair to say that emailing a picture of the piece to be appraised may be a convenient first step in the appraisal of an antique jewellery item, this sort of thing will often lead to an inaccurate evaluation of the piece in question.

How To Stay Warm This Winter- Smart Merino Review

It's freezing in the UK and I'm struggling to think of ways to stay warm without wearing too many layers. One tip that I often get from stylists and fashionistas is to layer, layer and layer- layering gives the body more warmth without too much bulk, and it's definitely the best way to stay warm this winter. Meet Smart Merino, a lovely brand that sells some of the best thermal layers that I've seen in a long time. I want to talk about my honest experience with the brand, and how I ordered a thermal layer from them, and what I think about the quality and fit of the piece.

A bit about the brand- originating from New Zealand, Smart Merino specialise in superior quality ethically sourced New Zealand made men’s & women’s 100% merino wool base layers, thermals, lingerie, underwear, accessories & more. They have a variety of sub-brands, including Brass Monkeys, Nature's Secret & From Merino With Love. There's lots to choose from, and it's exciting to choose something from their shop.

The ordering process is simple- you can either order from their site or from Amazon, and I chose to do the latter. I simply chose this lovely From Merino With Love Long Sleeve Top from the brand and ordered it from Amazon Prime in the UK. It was simple, straightforward and hassel-free. I chose a Size Small since I didn't want it to be too loose for layering. It's better to get thinner tighter layers to wear underneath as opposed to looser fabrics. I also chose white as it's a light, crisp colour that can be worn on it's own. 

The package arrived within a day and it was incredibly fast! Take a look below!

As you can see, the quality of the thermal layer is amazing. It's made from 100% pure merino wool which originated from New Zealand. New Zealand has some of the finest merino wool because of the quality of their sheep, and it's of no surprise that some of the most valuable wool are produced there. This top is extremely comfortable, feels ultra soft and smooth. There wasn't irritation when I tried it on, and I've been wearing it everyday underneath my jumpers and jackets for extra warmth. I have to say, it's really keeping me cozy and toasty all winter.

As for the design and fit, this top is designed with a rounded scoop neck & safety stitch seam for the ultimate lightweight, warm, soft, comfortable, superior quality base layer. The round neck means that it's not too revealing and low-cut, and it protects the chest area which is vulnerable to the cold. It's odour-resistant, fast-drying and moisture-wicking, and I never feel the need to take this off at all since merino wool regulates your temperatures pretty well.

Overall, I'me extremely happy with this thermal base layer, as it's impeccably designed and made with care. The quality is outstanding and the design, feel and effect of this top is on point. It definitely keeps me warm during the winter months, and I'm extremely happy with Smart Merino and their beautiful products.

Luvyle Wishlist 2018

Are you looking for a dress for a special event? Watching your budget? Luvyle is a great site that sells lots of cheap sexy dresses, ranging from casual dresses to formal dresses. If you're looking for something sultry and sexy, look no further than the site- because they have literally thousands and thousands of dresses for you to choose from.

Prom dresses in particular are hard to buy because of the fitting and design. For the fit, you don't know whether it fits you right or whether the style fits your particular body type. For the design, you can't really choose the perfect design out of hundreds and hundreds of choices. But their shop makes things much easier- for starters they have a returns service which means that you can always return the dresses that you don't like


For the design, they provide many for you to choose from but it's all sorted into categories so it's easy to use and find. The dresses also are custom made for your measurements, and you can get the dress after a speedy delivery service which does not take very long.

They also have cheap womens fashion jackets which are suitable for the winter. Winter jackets are good to wear for the following occasions:

  1. Clubbing night - if you're going out with the girls then a sexy jacket will make you stand out from the crowd! 
  2. Party - these beautiful jackets are perfect for events like a birthday party or a regular cocktail party where you can look stunning and pretty. 
  3. Formal dinners - don't carry the misconception that jackets are only for the club nights, but they can also be for formal dinners and special nights, where you can impress your date and friends. 
  4. Dates - this is probably my favourite time to wear a jacket as it's guaranteed to make your date's jaw drop. He will love you in the cool jacket! 
Sigh, I haven't been clubbing in ages and I need to buy more dresses and jackets.

Check their store out!

Best Laser Hair Removal in London- Pulse Light Clinic

I'm sick of shaving my body and underarms, and I want to introduce you to this technique called laser hair removal. Today I want to talk about a clinic called Pulse Light Clinic in London, which offers a special kind of Laser Hair Removal Treatment that is proven to work.  So how does it work? Laser hair removal works by targeting the hair follicle with laser light, which zaps into the hair follicle at the root of the hair, and ensures that no more hair grows out. This procedure is non-invasive and safe, and totally worth it!

The procedure is as follows. A concentrated beam of light is aimed at hair. The light is absorbed by the pigment, which damages the follicle enough to retard future growth. Lasers can remove hair for anywhere from several months to years, as the results differ widely from person to person. Does it hurt? Not really. Depending on a person's pain tolerance, lasers can feel like a gentle pinch or the snap of a hot rubber band.

The main idea is that the pigment of the hair, but not the pigment of the skin, should absorb the light. The laser should damage only the hair follicle while avoiding damage to the skin. This is great news for people who have a lot of hair, or are just tired of shaving their body all the time. For me, I know for sure that I'm quite tired of shaving and having regrowths every day, and this procedure can save my beauty routine.

Advantages of laser hair removal include:
  • Reduction of ingrown hairs
  • Smoother skin
  • Not having to shave or wax
  • Less irritation to the skin
  • Permanent hair reduction
  • Reduces excessive hair growth ( PCOS)
  • Smaller pores & easy stress free body
How do you get started? The first thing to do is book yourself for a free consultation and patch test via telephone, online booking or walk in. Pulse Light Clinic is open Monday to Friday 10 am till 8pm across all clinics Bank, Fenchurch Street and Oxford Street). On the weekends the Bank Clinic is open from 10am till 5 pm. Our Oxford Street Clinic is open only on Saturday from 10 am till 5 pm.

At the consultation, a specialist will do a quick assessment of your skin and hair to see if you are suitable for laser hair removal followed by a patch test. After 48 hours you can start your first treatment! Isn't it exciting?

My Favourite Winter Boots- Sparta Sandals Review

Heads up everyone! It' finally autumn and I can't wait to get my winter boots out and celebrate the colder weather. Now, I love the weather because you can wear stylish and cool shoes, and boots always looks amazing and beautiful. I want to talk about my latest purchase from Sparta Sandals, an absolutely fantastic shop on Etsy that sells Grecian sandals of all shapes and sizes. They've got some of the most innovative and stylish designs that I've seen in a while, so I'm going to show you my massive haul!

A bit about the brand- Sparta Sandals is a brand that sells the best boots, platform shoes and Greek sandals with very interesting designs. I first tried the brand's Greek sandals because I needed summer shoes and they were amazing and comfortable. The brand recently got new boots and I wanted to try them because they looked amazing on!

The shoes arrived within 2 weeks of ordering via express shipping, so that was incredibly fast. I've ordered custom made items before and they all took like 6-7 weeks! Apart from the fast shipping, I was incredibly surprised at the beautiful wrapping and the packaging. It looks like something from a luxurious brand!

I literally screamed with happiness when I unboxed the shoes, which arrived really fast to the UK. They are brilliant and looked exactly like the photo on their website, and the colouring and everything was pretty spot on. Nothing looked different than what I expected, and the shoe is made from an extremely beautiful leather and a suede overlay. Everything that I dreamed about was spot on!

The quality of this pair of boots is fantastic- it is beautifully made with perfection, and the rubber sole feels super sturdy and hard. I love the double zipped design and the lovely upper finish as it's smooth but not too stiff. It has a smooth suede texture and the rich black suede leather is extremely beautiful and looks wonderful when paired with jeans or a t-shirt. The whole shoe feels really solid and durable, and it's definitely better than anything I can find online!

As you can see, the boots are made with lovely detail, and the white and black stripes at the base gives it a "street style" feel. I think they'd look great when paired with a cool outfit and jeans. I just adore these boots, and the make and finish is amazing.

In terms of comfort, these are probably the most comfortable pair of pointed boots that I've ever had. The platform heels were perfect for girls like me who always suffer from heel pains. The fit of the boots are perfect, since I got an EU 38 which was what the site helpfully suggested. The pointed boots doesn't feel uncomfortable and they fit me perfectly even with socks. I love the boots, and they're so stylish and cool when worn with a leather jacket and jeans.

For the price, these shoes are really worth it. By all means, these shoes can be considered to be on the medium-end of prices, but the quality exceeds anything that I've ever imagined. When I opened it, it feels like I've gone to shoe heaven!

In summary, I am definitely recommending Sparta Sandals to everyone I know. The brand is amazing because they have a huge range of interesting designs including boots and sandals, and all of their shoes are sure to be of great quality. I'm extremely satisfied with their service and quality, and I got lots of compliments for my new suede boots from relatives and friends, who all asked me where I got them. I'd definitely recommend Sparta Sandals to anyone who needs new shoes!
