Makeeda from JustFabulous

A few weeks ago JustFabulous surprised us by releasing a "shoe of the month". They were definitely right on target with this month's selection:  Makeeda is an affordable version of Christian Louboutin's Clou Noeud shoe. This CL shoe is particularly a favorite of mine and is at the top of my "If I Were Rich" wishlist!

I am really excited about these shoes. So excited, that although I am behind on my blogging (sorry!) and have a bunch of other shoes in line for pictures and blog posts, I decided to give Makeeda her much deserved VIP treatment and post about her first!

Sadly, I had to wait a little bit longer than usual to enjoy my new shoes. This is because I originally ordered my regular size and my toes were at the very edge (Which, I'm sure you are aware, is a definite no-no when wearing open toe or peep toe shoes).

I exchanged both pairs for a half size up and that worked out well for me. I was afraid going up in size would cause the slingback strap to be loose, but it wasn't. The half size up fits perfectly!

Next weekend is my birthday and I have planned my outfit around the blush pair. They are my favorite because they are the perfect mix of girly and edgy. For the time being we will focus on those, but be sure to check back for additional pictures of the black ones.

The pictures on the left, where the shoes appear to be almost white, were taken with the flash. The pictures on the right were taken without the flash to give you a better idea of the true color of these shoes.


Makeeda has a 5" heel and a 1" platform. For those of you who don't wear such high heels - do not let the 5" discourage you from ordering these. They really are extremely comfortable and easy to walk in.

What do you think of Makeeda? I can definitely say that I am in love with these shoes! I am hoping that all future shoes of the month are as special as this one.

The Look for Less: Christian Louboutin Lady Peep Slingbacks


Christian Louboutin's Lady Peep Slingback Pump in "Jade" is such a fun, seasonal shoe. They are perfect for this season's color blocking trend. If I had $895 to spend on shoes I would definitely have these in my closet.

Neiman Marcus $895

JustFabulous has done it again! Get the CL Lady Peep look for just $39.95 with JF's Jacoba.

Jacoba comes in two colors: turquoise/yellow/white or black/red/white. My favorite are the turquoise for obvious reasons.

The Look for Less: Steve Madden Haylow

Last week, I showed you how similar Steve Madden's Haylow is to Sole Society's Anouk.

The SM version of the shoe [pictured above] usually retails for around $70, but now you can get a look-a-like from JustFabulous for just $39.95 with free shipping.

The JF version of the shoe [below] is called Edna. She comes in nude and black. The heel height is 5" with a 1/2" platform.

In case you haven't heard, JustFab has made it easier to purchase a shoe that is not in your boutique. When you are on you boutique page, just above the shoes or bags there will be a search box on the right hand side. Simply type in the name and you will automatically be forwarded to the item's page. What I'm trying to say is head over to JustFabulous and look up the Edna if you'd like to see more pictures and full details. There is no need to call or do a live chat anymore!

These designer-inspired platform peep-toe slingbacks have a 5" heel and a 1" platform. I love them so much that I ordered two pairs! Which color is your favorite?

The Look for Less: Faux Suede Platform Pumps

A few weeks ago my friend Stephanie posted some great finds on my Facebook page. I wanted to fill you in on these finds, but didn't want to do that until I had these items in hand and knew for sure they were worth purchasing. You may have already come across these items on another blog. This is because someone saw the pictures on my Facebook page and jumped at the chance to share them on her blog before I received them and had the chance to share them with you.

       Do you remember my post on the Kayla pumps from Sole Society?
Sole Society / Kayla Pump - $49.95





       You can't tell me that other than color, these pumps aren't identical.
See Review for Retailer - $30 (before discounts and other coupons)
Don't get me wrong, the Sole Society pumps are more expensive and made with better material, therefore they are better quality. On the other hand, the less expensive look-a-likes aren't too bad in the quality department - not to mention they are pretty comfortable! 

I ordered Kayla in both colors that Sole Society carried - coral and snakeskin. Had they offered more color options I would have definitely ordered several others. Both of these colors are back in stock, so if you are interested in purchasing the Sole Society version of these pumps you can check out my blog posts on them for photos and more information - Coral Kayla Pumps / Snakeskin Kayla Pumps.

To find out what retailer carries the more affordable version of these pumps and for the scoop on discounts and other coupons, please see my review post here.

The Look for Less: Stuart Weitzman Crocheted Ankle-Wrap Espadrilles

One thing that I definitely want to try and post more of are "Looks for Less". These are by far some of my most popular blog posts. I love them just as much as you ladies do! So you could imagine how grateful I am that my friend Jasmine tipped me off about another current JustFabulous shoe that looks almost identical to these Stuart Weitzman Crocheted Ankle-Wrap Espadrilles.

Neiman Marcus - $365

Callie also has crochet ankle straps and a raffia platform wedge. She comes in black, natural, and stone. You can get this summer staple for just $39.95 from JustFabulous!
Just Fabulous - $39.95


What do you think? I think that JustFab did a great job finding us yet another affordable, designer inspired shoe. Thanks JF!!

The Look for Less: Chunky Wooden Heel T-Strap Platforms

Platform Shoes with big chunky heels have been all over the place this spring. I'm going to show you three different, yet almost identical shoes that vary greatly in price.


I've had Jeffrey Campbell's Foxy Platform (as well as a few other JC shoes) on my wishlist for what seems like forever now. There are so many versions of this shoe. JC offers Foxy in various colors and prints (too many to name), different heels (wood, espadrille), and material (leather, suede, fur, etc). Pictured here are Foxy Wood in black.

Jeffrey Campbell Foxy Wood $119.95 at SoleStruck
 
Jessica Simpson's Dany is an almost identical, and slightly more affordable version of JC's Foxy.
Jessica Simpson Dany $98

Both of the above shoes are very hard to come by, especially in the popular colors (except in large sizes).

Luckily, JustFabulous has brought us the Debbie shoe which is extremely similar to JC's Foxy and JS's Dany. 

JustFabulous Debbie $39.95

Debbie comes in brown and black. If you are interested in purchasing this shoe from JustFabulous you'd better act fast because it is already sold out in certain sizes!

The Look for Less: Leopard Wedges

Look at these Steve Madden West II wedges. They are pure leopard perfection!

$199 at Steve Madden
I just love the huge chunky platform on these Steve Madden babies. IMO, this particular leopard pattern and the shades of the colors used make this shoe different than every other leopard print shoe out there, and therefore more desirable (to me anyway).

I know these aren't an exact match, but look at what I just found at JustFabulous!
$39.95 at JustFab
JF's Roxy were most likely inspired by Jimmy Choo's Penny wedge but I absolutely love SM's West II's so I had to share since the photo of those! :) They are all very similar though.

JustFab's Cooper or Jimmy Choo?

The Cooper shoe from the W-3 collection by Just Fabulous is almost identical to Jimmy Choo's Polar Patent Leather Espadrilles.  

Get your espadrilles for $39.95 at JustFabulous ladies!

....Just another reminder that tomorrow is the first of the month which means that new styles will be added to your boutique at 12am PST.  JF always gives sneak-peaks of their new styles the week before they are released and there are already a few items I have my eyes on.  They have lots and lots of color this month!  If you haven't signed up for JustFabulous I urge you to do so!  There is no commitment to make a purchase if you sign up.  If you plan on signing up and you have not yet read my post about how shoe clubs work, I suggest doing so before heading to their site.
