I've Been Dazzled: ShoeDazzle Review

Ciao Bellas,
Ok I admit it, I've been holding out on y'all. Last month I became a member of ShoeDazzle, and I've been hooked ever since. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the company, it's sort of like a monthly shoe club (which is affiliated with Kim Kardashian, and Kim serves as the chief fashion stylist) where you can purchase shoes, handbags, or jewellery sets for a total $39.95 (Per item. Including tax, and standard shipping).

The Details:

 Essentially what you do is take a style quiz, and you're shown pictures of different shoes, celebs, and brands. Then you have to select the ones that are closest to reflecting your personal style. After this one of the ShoeDazzle stylists will put together a showroom for you which will include shoes, handbags, and jewellery sets which will be available in your showroom soon after (and as new products are available, the stylists pick and choose some to add to your showroom according to the results from your quiz).

New stuff is added on the 1st of the month (and special shoes come out during the month sometimes. A collection benefiting the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation comes out next month, featuring pink items), and you do have the option to skip a month if you don't want to purchase anything (which you can do as often as you want)...you just need to do it between the 1st and 5th of that month, as they will charge you the $39.95 on the 6th and you'll receive a credit good for any one item on the website. Taking the survey and getting your showroom put together is free, and they don't begin to charge you until after you make your first purchase. Just a heads up. You also get 20% off your 1st order, if your a 1st time customer. A good way to give ShoeDazzle a try, would be searching around on Groupon, and purchasing a $19 ShoeDazzle Groupon (and no, you don't have to live in the city listed on the groupon in order to purchase or use it). Those are only good for new ShoeDazzle members making their very first purchase though (and I don't think you get style points for that...or at least, I didn't when I used my groupon). For more info on how to use a ShoeDazzle Groupon, check out this post on Shoes and Jules.

For every item you purchase, you recieve 100 style points and if a friend you refer to ShoeDazzle signs up using your link and makes a purchase you get 200 style points. When you accumulate 1,000 style points you get a free credit good for any item on ShoeDazzle. They also have "DazzleDeals" on Tuesday and Thursday featuring items like luggage sets, PJ's, lingerie, skincare stuff, makeup sets, and more for $39.95.

What I've Bought So Far...
 I've purchased 3 things from Shoedazzle (I've also got my eye on a few other things) which I've found to be of really good quality, and quite dazzling if I do say so myself =)

My 1st purchase (using my $19 Groupon) was a pair of "Rocket" Sequin Zebra Print High Top Sneakers by Rock & Candy. I found that they run pretty true to size, and they're reallllly comfy. They came with shoe bags as you can see, and they have a zipper on the side so I can get in and out of them with ease. I'm not even really a sneaker girl Bella's, but I loveeee these. And they match my Zebra Print Messenger Bag that I got on sale for $7 at H&M =)

2nd Purchase: Mel. B Pumps. Once in awhile ShoeDazzle has a celebrity design a shoe and the profits go to charity (the next pair come out on the 23rd I think, and they were designed by Carson Kressley). These were designed by Mel. B of the Spice Girls, and they've been selling out left and right (so if you get a chance to buy a pair, JUMP on it). According to the website, 100% of the profits from these shoes go to the Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. They do run a little small, so I had to go a size up (well, I would have gone half a size up...but I'm a 10...and there are no 10 1/2's so an 11 had to do. With a pair of Dr. Scholl's For Her insoles in there, I should be fine). These shoes are absolutely beauuuuuutiful. Fly, fierce, fabulous, I'm just in love with them. Too bad I can't wear them anytime soon because I have tendinitis in my knee, but as soon as I can I'm rocking these.

I'm loving the leopard insoles
 The rhinestones on the heel aren't like sealed though, so I heard that theres a little trick of painting over them with Mod Podge to seal them so that the stones don't fall out...and letting it like cure for a week. Which I shall do, once I get some time to go to the craft store. I'll report back with my results.

3rd Purchase: Cleary Riding Boots. I've been on the lookout for some shiny flat black boots foreverrr, and these definitely fit the bill. While they aren't like patent, they do give off a subtle sheen, fit true to size, and are quite comfy. All while giving off a bit of equestrian vibe.

So there you have it Bella's, my ShoeDazzle review and a look at some of the products that have gotten me hooked lol. I'd definitely recommend that you check ShoeDazzle out, as they've got some realllly cute things for decent prices which makes this savvy shopper incredibly happy. I've officially been Dazzled.

Stylishly Yours,
Resa Seyi
