justfab: new iron fist … drool!

I am loving the new Iron Fist shoes, especially Sweets for my Sweet (I LOVE cupcakes) and Lounge Days (I love polka dots, bows, and ankle straps!). And at $39.95 each or under, they’re not a bad price either!

review: justfabulous makeeda

So my latest JustFab purchased happened when I forgot to ‘skip the month’ in December and wound up with a credit. Shoe clubs such as JustFab are great, you just have to be sure and ‘skip’ if you don’t want to make a monthly purchase.

Oh well, that’s no one’s fault but my own and the good news is I wound up with a great pair of edgy high heels, Makeeda. Plus these beauties are a Christian Louboutin Clou Noeud look-alike at a much better price- only $39.95. I would normally not even give shoes with studs a second glance (normally not my thing) but I saw a blog post about them that my friend Chee at the Shoe Doctor, PhD wrote. I really liked the way Makeeda looked on her. Plus the fact that I LOVE red heels, peep toes, and bows helped too ;-P

here’s my in depth review:

Style: I really love the peep toe, the red faux leather and the studs. But the whole style is elevated a couple of levels (for me) because of the cool modern bow. I love the bow. And the fact that it’s a slingback pump helps too. 5/5.

Fit: I have wide feet and I usually wear a size 9. I ordered the 9 and it fits pretty well. You can tell that I have wide feet in the pictures but oh well, that’s expected with wide feet. There are is some very minor rubbing of my second to smallest toe but it’s not bad enough to blister. I wore them all day at work and they were pretty  comfortable! I do sit at a desk all day but the little walking around I did, I didn’t want to take them off for relief. 4/5.

Color: Love the red:-) 5/5.

Quality: I would say for the price [39.95], the quality is not bad. Makeeda is made of faux leather. The insoles are peeling a little but but nothing that a little glue can’t fix. Not sure about the quality right now because I’ve only worn her a few times but I think if you take care of these heels, they could last. 3.5/5.

Price: not bad at under $40. 5/5.

Overall: I got so many complements wearing these today! They are cute and fairly comfortable – 4.5/5.

review: JustFabulous Iron Fist Ingrid shoes

I recently broke down and made my first purchase from Just Fabulous (aka JustFab or ShoeFab). I opted for the Ingrid heels from the Iron Fist line. Even I was surprised at how much I liked the Ingrid as I am not usually into skulls, heavy metal, or punk rock-type fashion. But the lace print along with the ankle strap and bow spoke to me.

I’m glad I made the plunge and joined millions of JustFab customers. You would not believe how many complements I got when I wore Ingrid to work. Not exactly the most practical shoe here (the heel is about 4″ high and I usually wear 3″ heels or less). But I was tall (yay) and cute. The shoe outer is made of faux leather that’s printed to look like skull lace. Add a striped fabric bow and a small, pink scull charm and you’ve got a recipe for sexy.

Half sizes not being available in the Iron First line, I opted to buy the size 10 since I thought his closed-toed beauty would require me to buy it in size 9.5. While shoe is slightly large, I am fairly certain a size 9 would have been too tight in the toe box for me (I do wear size 9 a lot but I have wide feet and do not enjoy having my toes smushed either so I would rather go slightly large than slightly small).

Over all, I love the Ingrid. It’s not the most practical work shoe and it’s made of faux materials but I was able to wear her all day to work with only minimal foot fatigue and maximum complements from co-workers. I felt really sexy wearing these high heels, and I liked it. I plan on buying a couple of foam inserts to fix the looseness issue and then me and Ingrid will skip happily into the sunset. Not bad for a shoe that I would normally shy away from and that costs under $40 (shipping was free!).

I don’t know what it is with me, I’m definitely on a shoe kick!

A lot of people noticed the JustFabulous Debbie t-strap platform shoes, enough so that it sold out fairly quickly.

I wasn’t really loving the Debbie platform (which BTW looks very similar to a Jeffrey Campbell t-strap shoe, read about its lookalike quality here) but I know some of my friends did, and I found some lookalikes, so I decided to share my finds with everyone.

I found two lookalikes for the sold out Debbie. The are both called Jayden; one I found at UrbanOg and the other at Make Me Chic.

The t-strap platforms are priced at $35.40 and $32.50, respectively, which is less than ShoeFab’s $39.95 but the retailers require a $50  purchase for free shipping. I noticed Blue, White, and Black color options, but the blue one only has one size left.

There aren’t that many sizes left of these ShoeFab lookalikes either, so jump on it ladies.

And actually, UrbanOg has some really cute shoes at very, very good prices–definitely budget friendly. One of my faves is the Qupid Enrich 90 Peep Toe wedge in blush (it’s also available in black and taupe patent leather). SO CUTE and very affordable. Love them! What do you think!?
