While watching TV, I would always see the commercials for ShoeDazzle.com. I liked the shoes that were advertised but I was already a JustFab subscriber and I have skipped every month since last summer due to budget issues. Earlier this month, I decided to treat myself and try ShoeDazzle to get a new variety of shoes for my birthday.
If you've never tried one of these online shoe boutiques. it usually starts with a personality quiz to personalise your boutique shopping experience. I usually dread this part of the process because it's so not diverse. Every question asked me about shoes that I would never wear. They showed me pictures of gaudy knee and thigh high boots that I would just never wear! Hello tropical island girl! When would I ever need thigh high boots with straps and studs? I basically pictured the lesser of all of the evils just to get through and look at the shoes. What I didn't realise is that they sell shoes according to which season we're in, and because it's still winter, ALL they had was boots. I'm not much of a boot girl. I used to love boots but now as a working girl in a school, there isn't much need for boots.
It was hard to find shoes that I felt would be comfortable because of the slope of the heel, but I eventually found one pair of black ankle boots that I liked and a pair of blush heels. I caught the 2 shoes for $39.95 deal couldn't wait to have my new shoes for my birthday.
After going through hell to pick up my package from the courier because they charged me $53 just to bring it in, I finally got my shoes! I tried on the black boots and instantly felt pinched. It was the right size, but the toe area is so cramped I went out and bought in soles to make it more comfortable but it actually made it worse so I just have to suffer through it.
The blush heels look great and I imagine it would be perfect for women who don't have ankles because of the shape and cut. The only downside is it's hell to get your foot into and out of it because of the lacing in the back. But once it's on, these are some of the most comfortable heels on the planet! I've worn them like five times now how much I love them!
