Yet another shoe review for you!

Pretty impressive rhyming post title eh? Anyways, I wanted to share another review from my last shoe purchase. This one I saw from a member who posted about it on the Just Fab facebook page. I liked the photo I saw so I went ahead and bought it. Okay, who am I kidding... I mostly purchaseed this shoe from Just Fab because it shares the same name as me! I've always loved anything with my name and these shoes do not disappoint. I have a top that matches it perfectly and for the first outfit I wore it with skinny jeans and that top with a cute clutch. Second outfit was with white gauchos, a white tank top and a matching blazer and rocked it. My only regret is that I wish I would of went up half a size and it would of been so much more comfortable. I love the shoes though and get tons of compliments. I recently wore them to brunch and everyone loved them. They seem a little small though which is too bad. Like some of the other reviews I have read on JustFab, I hope the leather will stretch however if it doesn't I will be taking it to the shoe repairman to stretch for me. Too cute for me to refuse to wear! Now, most times I buy 2 pairs of shoes and this was no exception. These ones were a bit different... A red hot pair of pumps! Every stylish gal needs to have some hot red pumps in her wardrobe. I have a number of them but one of my favorites are Monica from Just Fab. These are about the 20th pair of shoes that I purchased through Just Fab and I am really really happy with them. They are a great addition to my collection. Yes, I do wear them; they are not just sitting in my closet! Given the fact that the are 5" heels, I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable they are. I was a little bumed out that they were sold out in pink but you can't go wrong with a fire engine red tone shoe :)

Staying Trendy: It Aint Easy All The Time!

Keeping up to date with ongoing fashion trends can be tough. A lot of people like myself are tuning to online personal stylists in order to keep up to date with changing trends. If you have been reading my blog at all in the past you'll know all about why I love these type of sites that allow anyone access to celebrity stylists and deals on heels.

The shoes they offer are pretty good for the price. I'd have to compare the shoes I get from Just Fab or ShoeDazzle to $100+ shoes that you could find in a retail shop setting.

The last shoe that I ordered from is just what I expected and looks just like the picture on their site. Now I wear 4-5 inch heels all the time and this heel is not for beginners. Although heels can be the same height there are different ways of making it that height. In this case they made the shoe steep. Still comfortable to wear but it takes some time to adjust. Overall I love it and I've been wanting a blush shoe like this forever so I am pleased.

Another nude colored peep toe pump that I bought with this shoe is a darling of a heel too. I forget the name of it, but I will look it up and post later. I am normally a size 7 but the right shoe felt snug so I exchanged for size 7.5. Daphne is such a cute shoe! I recieved so many compliments. She is surprisingly comfortable... Because of the wrapped platform, the heel looks higher than it feels. Your foot just isn't as arched as you would think so it's easy to walk in this shoe and feel comfortable. It feels great, it looks wonderful and looks fabulous with a sleek pair of jeans! I highly recommend this shoe to everyone! Oh and it's a must that you get a really cute dress to wear with them. I wore a cute tan dress, gold earings with a pearl dot in the center of them to accent the gold trip around the shoe. Cute pink make-up to match and cute gold bangles.

My Just Fab Review for You to Read!

If you are looking for reviews on Just Fab then you will for sure want to keep reading. I've mentioned them before but wanted to post a more detailed post about them. When ordering any type of clothing or womens shoes over the internet you will want to hear from other people who have used the website before you. You will be able to see what their customer service is like and more importantly what the quality of the merchandise is that they offer.

Every girls dream is to have their own personal stylist to make them look pretty. Well, now with online shopping becoming more personalized you are closer to this dream than ever. Just Fab is a site that offers your own personalized picks every month and is an interesting idea. Here's my thoughts on the first order that I received from Just Fab:

I only have two complaints about this shoe. The first is that the beading at the top rattles a little bit with each step. Why have a bell around your neck when you can just wear this shoe? My second complaint is that the heel of the shoe is really rough. Despite this, I really like these shoes a lot. They provide great support, they're really classy, and I feel like I can wear them anywhere.

Next up is a style that is a very high heel. Just Fab mostly has these super high heels so I thought I would see if I could even walk in them. This shoe was called Bailey. I went from a size 10 to a full 11 and needed every inch of it. I think the slope is so high down into the toe box that you can't help but feel squeezed. I will use some pads for the balls of my feet to keep the slide at a minimum-but will wear these for years to come. They are CLASSIC. I don't think Bailey will ever go out of style. I am getting purple in this shoe too. Just love it!

Be on the lookout for more posts about Just Fab from me soon!

Looking Fabulous from the Feet UP!

When you want to look fab all day every day, it has to start with the shoes! That's why I love getting hot shoes from internet stores each month and reading blogs to stay up to date with the trends. Some shoes I think I like a little too much :)

Yeah, I wear shoes even if they don't fit and hurt my feet. The last shoe I bought I fell in love with right of the bat. It does not fit me but that could be because I am a size 10 and my feet are somewhat wider than the norm (I don't have sausage feet or anything like that). For others without wide feet this particular shoe might fit perfect, but for me If I were to go out wearing this fabulous looking shoe I would have to take them off within 30 minutes. Plus my toes go over the edges just a tad. So if you were to get this shoe, I would suggest that you go a half to a full size larger

When buying shoes online you want to know as much about them before you buy them. Online personalized shopping make the process a lot easier. If you haven't heard of personalized shopping for shoes before, then you are missing out!

It is a pretty neat idea. There are lots of reviews that you can find online about personalized shopping sites. I have tried a couple pairs from various sites so will review them here for you.

Norma is one shoe that I own. I loved the look of the shoe, but my toe hung over the edge. I was going to send back for larger size but I ran into two problems.

  1. If I went half size bigger I would be afraid there would be a gap in the heel.
  2. They didn't have the larger shoe in stock :(

So I think I might have to exchange them for different style. By the way, ladies... My mom got me the "Lorie" boots for my birthday and I love them too! No issues with them not fitting right or anything like that. These are one of the best pairs of shoes that I own.

Secret to Finding Just Fab Shoes

Women's shoes and fashion is a multi-billion dollar industry. A new player has emerged in Just Fab and they aim to take a big piece of the pie. Just Fab gives a way for women to buy a huge number of high quality trendy shoes at a very low cost. What makes them different though is not their affordable prices, but the way their online shopping experience works.

Instead of having access to their whole catalog of shoes, handbags and jewelry, Just Fab members have their own personal style experts who pick out items for them each and every month. The cool part is they don't just pick out random items, but they pick things that they think you are going to love based on a number of fashion related questions that you answer when you initially sign up.

It is most certainly an interesting and fun way to shop, and one that we would expect more companies to start doing in 2012.

When it comes to heels you need something that is going to fit. I got a pair recently from Just Fabulous and am on the fence about them. The heel is a lot taller than I'm used to; I usually wear 2 or 3 inch heels and these are 4 to 4.5 inch heels. Also I wear size 6.5, but I read another review of the shoe running big so I probably should have bought the 6. However, I bought heel pads and such to go in the shoes, which helped with the slipping.

What I like the least about these shoes is the super high heel, which positions your foot downward at a steep angle and puts a lot of pressure on the ball of your foot; there's supposed to be a hidden platform, but it doesn't do enough. My feet started hurting after 10 minutes of just walking around in my house so that is definitely not a good sign. I might be returning these to them for a refund or a new pair.

A closet full of heels is what every gal needs!

Here are my thoughts on why I love shopping online for high heels...

  1. You can get good quality shoes at a low price (if you know where to look)
  2. You can find free shipping both ways which is especially good if you need to exchange something for a different size
  3. You can find new styles all the time so you can stay up to date with new and emerging trends
  4. There is a number of neat perks and ways to get free shoes such as telling a friend or accumulating frequent buyer points on many sites

One site in particular Just Fab that I shop at has recently started to offer jewelry for sale to it's members. This jewelry is for sale on their site to its members for the same price as their shoes and handbags which is just under forty dollars per item.

I have been a member at here since they started offering jewelry and so far I have been impressed by the quality of the items available. They seem to be very solid and well made. My only issue has been with the selections... They don't seem to offer a huge variety right now which is kind of a bit of a dissapointment to me. Perhaps in the future they will look to expand and offer more, but that remains to be seen.

At any rate, it is a pretty good deal and you can probably find something that you like. You can not beat the price either. So have a look and see if you can add some fab jewelry to your collection!

I'm Shoe Crazy!

Call me shoe crazy if you want, I don't care. I am crazy about shoes and I am proud of it! As most anyone who knows me can tell, I love my shoes. I can't get enough shoes in fact, and my whole life revolves around them! Many weeks ago a reader told me about an online womens shopping site called Just Fab that offers a pretty original concept when it comes to shopping. They have shoes and handbags for sale but they get their personal stylists to choose different styles for you each month. Very neat idea and I am having a grand ole time with it since I joined up with them.

Every woman loves her shoes, but for some keeping up to date with the latest trends and styles is not an easy task. Not to mention the fact that it can get pretty expensive! That's where this site comes in... They are a womens shoes club that has their own team of stylists who can help make sure that you always have the latest styles available at a really great price. Your own stylist picks out a number of shoes and handbags for you each month with no obligation to buy. If you do decide to buy something, you can get any item for only $39.95!

Staying fab and in style has never been so easy and I am loving it so far. Once I get a chance I will write up my thoughts on some of the shoes I've ordered and share them with you
