I love my new boots! I'm from Australia and I was worried about ordering shoes without trying them on. I also was worried it would take too long for my things to be shipped here. Well, I ordered everything on Thursday night and on Friday received an email that my shipment had "hit a snag." Even with the snag it still arrived by Tuesday! Just 4 days later!! I was so impressed.

I was very confused about what size to get because all shoe size conversion tables say different things. I am an Australian size 7 and was told to get the US size 8.5. They didn't have it so I got the US size 8 and I'm glad I did! The US 8 is bigger than the Aus 7. It's probably 0.5-1.0 size bigger. But this particular boot is quite narrow so it fits my foot well. Because of the lace-ups I don't feel like the boot is too big at all. Plus now I can comfortably wear thick socks with them. This boot is soooo comfortable and warm! The black boots look really funky with jeans so I can wear them casually but they also have really good grip so I can wear them hiking. They're totally multipurpose. So stoked!!! I haven't used them for hiking yet but I'm trekking to Machu Picchu in August so we'll see how I go. :)

I love my new down jacket! I'm from Australia and I was worried about ordering something without trying it on. I also was worried it would take too long for my things to be shipped here. Well, I ordered everything on Thursday night and on Friday received an email that my shipment had "hit a snag." Even with the snag it still arrived by Tuesday! Just 4 days later!! I was so impressed.
I have literally not taken the jacket off since I got it. It's a running joke within my office. It's soooo warm and light (but not too light) and can roll-up really small which is great for travelling (I can fit it in my handbag). I am 60kg (132lb) and 164cm (64.6in) tall and ordered the medium because they didn't have small. I'm glad I got the medium though cause now I can where a jumper underneath it. It still fits really well and is fitted so it's pretty flattering which is what I wanted. I didn't want to look like a giant marshmallow. I ordered black but it's kind of an asphalt grey with a tinge of brown but I still really like it. It's not shiny either like some of the other down jackets I've seen. I hope this helps!
