The second item I purchased was a pair of their Sailor Moon sneakers. Like the tote, these also come in their own gorgeous box. These come in a light pink box with a dreamy Sailor Moon silhouette on the lid along with some gold foil accents. The sides are littered with gold silhouettes of Luna, the Moon Stick and Sailor Moon’s broach and ribbon. Inside, each shoe comes in its own drawstring dust bag along with extra insole cushions and a pair of white satin ribbon shoe laces.
This particular pair of shoes comes in 5 different colors (one for each of the 5 main Sailor Scouts), but of course you know I had to go with Sailor Moon’s pair. The sneakers I got are white with Sailor Moon’s blue and white sailor fuku on the back. They come laced with beautiful bright pink satin ribbons with gold tips. There’s also a pink and gold metal compact right on the top and a silver crystal outlined in gold on the tongue. These are obviously a lot less subtle than the bag, but I had to have them!
Sizing is always a concern when ordering shoes from a different country. I’m a size 6.5 US and 235 in Korea, so I ordered my shoes accordingly. The size is perfect, but I kind of wish I had a bit more space in the toes. So far I’ve only worn them once because wearing white shoes in a crowded city like Seoul is bit heartbreaking. Nonetheless I really wanted to give them a go and I can’t believe how comfortable they are. The faux leather is a lot softer than I anticipated, so I’m hoping with a few more wears they will stretch out a bit to give me a more comfortable fit. If you plan on ordering these, I’d say go a size up. You can always add insoles, but there’s not a whole lot you can do if they’re too small.
Many (not all) of the Sailor Moon products come with some adorable giveaways. So, while my Luna tote didn’t come with anything extra, my sneakers did! These came with a really cute white crop top with a light pink sailor Moon silhouette on the front and back velvet choker with a Sailor Moon compact charm on it. BEST FREE GIFTS EVER!!! I really just want to put everything on all together and be super extra. Well, I guess I kind of did.
I am really liking Grace Gift so far. Their packaging and products are beautiful, well designed and of pretty great quality as far as I can tell. I mean, I wouldn’t go back backing with the stuff, but for light everyday wear the products should be pretty durable. What’s even better is that they do International shipping, which is how I got my paws on these lovely items. A word of caution, due to the costs of international shipping, they DO NOT do returns or exchanges unless the product is defective and it’s clearly their fault. Otherwise you better be 100% about your purchases, especially when it comes to shoe sizes. If you’re feeling unsure about anything, you can just shoot them an email. From what I’ve experienced, they have very good customer service.
Overall I’d definitely recommend checking them out. Of course, like many collaborations, this will not last forever and certain items are already selling out, so be sure to get while the gettin’s good. ALSO, they have just started pre-orders on their 2nd Sailor Moon collaboration, which is a summer inspired line. I have already put in my order, so be sure to keep an eye out for that haul & review. Until next time…
