As promised, here is a look at my shoe haul from JustFab. Before I go any further, I have to disclose that these shoes were purchased with my own funds. They were not gifted to me from JustFab nor do I have any branding relationship with them. However, by pure coincidence, after publishing my list of online shoe clubs last Monday, I received a call and offer from JustFab to move my membership up to VIP status. It’s just purely by coincidence and for those of you who are wondering why I am making this disclosure, the blogging organizations that I am affiliated with requires it and I have to by law. Blogging is regulated to protect you, the consumers so that we don’t make any false claims or give a give review for a product because we got it for free. The following is my honest review.
There, now that, that is out of the way…. I used up all of my JustFab credits for this haul. In all I spent $80 out of pocket (there was that 2 for sale last month) and I accumulated loyalty membership points that I used towards my fifth pair. Translation, bought 4, one was free..SCORE!!!.
On the JustFab site, these shoes had more of pink undertone. In real life they look purplish. They dont’ look bad still, but as for the fit, as we say in Jamaica, puppa jeezaz, dem yah sinting yah wi gimmie lack jaw. The toe next to my little one, actually asked me if I forgot that he went a little long. They do not at all feel like a size 8.5. These were either labeled with the wrong size or somebody over at JustFab got pissed off with all of my shoe orders and decided to throw a monkey wrench in my plan by sending me these ill fitting shoes. They are tight and uncomfortable (the kind of uncomfortable you expect from cheap shoes). I doubt that rum or anything else can stretch these bad boys. I think this one is gonna go in my send to Jamaica pile.
I thought I was buying bright yellow shoes, but ok, the mustard can work. It also comes in purple. Remember I mentioned shoes that I could see way over the top of my refrigerator in, well this is one of them. It fits true to size and even with the height, they are pretty easy to walk in. They look great with skinny, tapered leg pants and dresses and skirts. I’m gonna save this one for special events (the kind where dancing is not on the program) and/or date night.
I’m honestly not overly excited about these, now that I have them. They were available in both black and this champagne/tan color. It feels true to size, but because it doesn’t have a platform this is not a good shoe for hikes of any distance (not even from your driveway to the back door). Although, these honestly achieve more with looks than purpose, I think I might put them in my wear to work pile.
I absolutely love these shoes. I wore them out to lunch on Presidents day and received a number of compliments. They remind me of the Giuseppe Zannotti color block sling back pumps that I featured here. They are true to size and because they have a platform they are relatively easy to walk in. I wouldn’t recommend that you drive in these or for that matter, any platform high heel shoes. There was something going on with the heel and my floor mats and the gas pedal and…brakes. I would never wear these to work. These are strictly for date nights and special events.
LOVE THEM, but I wish that they had these available in another color. I really didn’t need another pair of black shoes in my closet but I chose these because the glitter pumps reminded me of the blue Miu Miu’s that Claire Sulmers featured on her site, The Fashion Bomb Daily. If they had this in blue or red, I would be singing the praises of JustFab from every mountain top. This was part of their WhoWhatWear collection. They feel true to size and they are super comfy for heels of that height. Although they have that glitter which lights up everything, I am gonna wear the hell out of these shoes (work, play, while cooking in my kitchen, just lounging around watching television), etc. I hope that the WhoWhatWear team will be collaborating with JustFab again soon because, in my opinion, these are absolutely STUNNING!
