At the beginning of the year I was having a tough time. That usually calls for a drastic makeover. So yes, as I previously mentioned, I had my sister dye my hair red for me. Enjoy these photos of me slutting it up as I headed out to my favorite bar. Then check out where to buy your own over the top pieces. Of course the lipstick is Countessa Flourescent from Lime Crime.

Yes, I made my selections and created these polyvores at the very beginning of January. However due to personal issues my writing has been on the back burner.
Don’t worry though. Sometimes even if a shoe is currently sold out in your size it will come back in stock. Plus I chose some shoes that were fairly new but not new in January. Many of those are on sale. Kickass!
(from top right clockwise) Kaylie(Sole Society)-These 4 3/4″ tall suede open toe heels with bow detail come in dark taupe, black iridescent and emerald treasure (my pick!). Marisca(ShoeDazzle)-These 5.75″ tall peep toe platforms feature striking criss cross straps come in nude/tan or black. Bianca(Shoe Mint)-These 5.5″ tall leather and suede platforms are super cute. They come in nude, red ikat and rosewood. Reina(ShoeDazzle)-These 5.5″ tall faux patent t-strap platforms feature ShoeDazzle’s pink Signature sole. They come in black and green. Tay(ShoeDazzle)-These 5.5″ tall faux suede pump has awesome crystalline embellishments. They come in taupe. Sami(ShoeDazzle)-These 6″ tall velvet platform pumps with studs come in black. They also have a bright pink insole. Sorcha(ShoeDazzle)-These 6″ tall faux patent leather peep toe pumps rock some neat spiked embellishments. They come in black, red or nude/tan. Lacey Days Shoe(JustFab)-These 5 1/2″ tall mary janes from Iron Fist feature a ladylike, lace and skull print. In addition to red they come in beige. Plus they offer a matching bag. Now I adore this print and would own these already if it weren’t for the fact that I’m trying to cut back on buying shoes that I can’t wear daily. They are also a part of the current buy one get one free sale from JustFab. Phoebe(ShoePrivee)-These 6″ tall peep toes are accented with some fun studs. They are available in teal and black or nude and black.
(from top right clockwise) Lolita Love Bootie(JustFab)-These 6″ tall leopard, polka dot and removable flower booties are so amazing! They are definitely on my must buy list. They are also a part of the current buy one get one free sale from JustFab. X Marks the Spot Bootie(JustFab)-These 5 1/4″ platform booties come in an awesome blue leopard print. Plus the heel and front platform are covered in faux suede. These are also a part of the current buy one get one free sale from JustFab. Cecile(JustFab)-These 5″ tall booties with side bow come in teal, black or taupe. Amsterdam(JustFab)-These 5″ tall buckle strapped boots are stunning. I am so close to buying these. They have also been a top selling shoe on JustFab all month long. Wakana(ShoeDazzle)-These 4.75″ tall velvet knee hight boots feature adjustable buckles and a neat open back. They come in black, red or purple. Plus they are currently half off. Rock On(JustFab)-These 1″ tall boots from Avril Lavigne’s Abbey Dawn collection are a real eye catcher, especially in the leopard. They also come in black. I myself had to have them and bought these so let me give you the scoop. They zip up the side, lace up the front and have adjustable studded skull buckles at the top. You have to size up in Abbey Dawn if you are a half size (I’m an 8.5) so I got a 9 in these. Even with that they are still tight in the calves even after unloosening the laces most of the way. I would say to size even higher but the heel is slightly loose on me. They are really unique though. They are another item in the JustFab buy one get one free sale. Klarissa(ShoeDazzle)-These 5″ tall faux suede bootie features rear laces and a side zipper. They come in purple, blue and black. Plus they are current half off! Manslayer Bootie(JustFab)-These 5″ tall studded rocker style peep toe booties are edgy and sexy. I was told by my ex that they are sexy so there’s a man’s opinion for you. They are a part of the current buy one get one free sale from JustFab as well. Simmy(ShoePrivee)-These 6″ tall faux suede leopard print wedges include a side zipper and gold heel. These are amazing. I would have already gotten them for myself if it weren’t for the fact that the heel looks a bit narrow for me to walk around regularly in.

Since I’m a member of those shoe of the month clubs I thought that it would be fun to browse through all of them and choose my favorites for the month of March. Some shoe of the month clubs will charge your card if you don’t pass on that month by a certain date (after you’ve made your first purchase) while others have dropped that requirement. So be aware of that.
The clubs are featuring some darling pastel and bright wedges this month that put me in mind of a sorbet. (from top right clockwise) Nicci(ShoeDazzle)-These 6.5″ tall faux suede platforms come in orange, white & green (my favorite!) Phebe(Sole Society)-These 7″ tall faux leather platforms come in mint (my favorite!), nude (a pinky nude) & coral. Marguerite(JustFab)-These 6 1/2″ tall cork wedges come in yellow (my favorite!), nude & fuschia. Lorna(ShoeDazzle)-These 6.25″ tall faux snakeskin & faux suede wedges are a bit more understated and wearable. They come in tan (my favorite) and orange. Octavia(ShoeDazzle)-These 6.5″ tall faux leather wedges come in black, tan and salmon (my favorite!). The black are really wearable looking though. Pulse(ShoePrivee)-These 6″ tall funky, colorblock micro-suede wedges come in blue or black. Phebe(Sole Society)-in coral Drinna(ShoeDazzle)-These 6.75″ tall faux snakeskin cork wedges feel very Jimmy Choo meets the club. They come in black or pink (my favorite).

HEELS (from top right clockwise) Thomasina(JustFab)-These 6″ tall heels are also available in some fab pastels, light coral, lilac & mint. Nikki(ShoePrivee)-These 6″ tall satin sandals with faux leather piping are super club worthy. Hey, I’ll walk around barefoot whenever need be, but seriously, they’re hot. They come in turquoise (my favorite!) and lime (can you say “fly girl”). Thomasina(JustFab)-in lilac Chevron(ShoePrivee)-These 6″ tall glitter embellished faux leather pumps with gold cap toes and gold finished heels are stunning. Bethania(JustFab)-These 6.5″ tall faux suede lovelies look semi demure from the front but feature a sexy corset detail on the back. They come in blush (a blushy pink) & red. Kyle(Sole Society)-These 6 1/4″ faux leather loafer pumps are so ugly they’re hot. They come in goldenrod (a deep yellow), red (my favorite) & taupe.

To join any of these clubs simply click the invite links below. Most of the clubs started out at a price point of almost $40 though ShoePrivee now has tiers (some of which are more expensive). Shoe Mint’s styles are almost $80 a pair because they use real animal skins (leather, suede, etc.) Tip: If you become a member of a club and don’t purchase right away they may send you a discount later to entice you.

As I mentioned recently I’m totally mad over cardigans and other types of fitted sweaters this fall. I find them a bit tricky to find just because I have super long arms. I’ve always found soft cardigans sweetly sexy. Aside from a cardigan the Shawl Collar Wrap Sweater by Sofia Vergara that I tried on here would definitely be a top choice.
Glitter pumps are gorgeous so basically every brand has jumped on the trend, which I’m stoked about. I recently purchased Temptress (gorgeous) from ShoeDazzle but despite that fact I am still longing for more shiny shoes. Some of the above styles are available at Kmart and are also very cute in person. If I buy another pair they will probably be a platform or a wedge so I can wear them more often. Sparkly shoes are so popular that JustFab has an entire collection devoted to them called Night Lights.
Okay, these cloche hats are just darling. It’s no surprise that they are readily available. It is likely that my passion for these was kindled by my recent outing as a flapper for Halloween. Of course you already know that I am a crazyhatlady.
Recently I’ve been almost exclusively reaching for deep reds and plums when adorning my lips, in particular Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Metallic Seduction (included above). I’m also coveting the classy Glamour 101 from Lime Crime. I mostly included brands that I am personally a fan of here. They are soft and provide good color payout.
Leopard and other animals prints are no stranger to fall fashions but that doesn’t mean that I’m overlooking them. Although I’m not currently into an all over animal style look I am fond of animal prints in small doses this fall. Of course I’m most drawn to almost any style of leopard shoe.
(There are currently ShoeDazzle 1/2 off Groupons available. Skip to the end to snag yours.)
A few days ago I was thrilled to see that ShoeDazzle had released their own interpretation of the classic Hermes Birkin bag, the Lyon. I really wanted the red and am also loving the green. I took a day to think about it since I try not to buy many bags. When I checked the next day it was already sold out in green. I snagged one in red. They are now also out of red. You can currently choose from camel or black I also recommend getting on the waitlist (they call you when they get them in) and/or stalking it (checking the page frequently for restocks) in the color that you want. I have bought many of my ShoeDazzle purchases after they’ve sold out and come back in stock so I can tell you that it’s very likely that you could still get your first color choice if you are adamant. All colors are currently in stock.
The actual Birkin bag is a celebrity favorite, having been featured on Sex and the City and on the arms of many stars. I am also a big fan of the Hermes Kelly bag, as seen in Le Divorce. I even had a jelly knockoff of it that I bought at Dots a few years back. Who knows? Maybe ShoeDazzle will interpret that one in the future.
JustFabulous (also known as JustFab) is currently showcasing this lovely shoe, the Makeeda in blush, blue, red or black. It is their version of the Christian Louboutin Clou Noeud. I am really feeling blush but the black would go with so many outfits and the blue is so unexpected.
ShoeDazzle and JustFab are monthly shoe clubs. This means that you are charged a set amount ($39.99) whether or not you have ordered by a certain date each month. You can choose to spend this on any item that they are selling. You are not required to actually make a purchase each month. Just skip that month by the specified date. It’s very easy. You know that I wouldn’t participate if it were difficult. You can sign up for ShoeDazzle here and you will get about 20% off of your first purchase (making it $32). You can sign up for JustFab by going here and your first purchase will only be $31.96 (20% off).
Update-May 2012-Lyon is back in cute candy colors. Tillie is also back in the original styles and new fun prints, I favor the orange. I’m pretty sure Makeeda is also still available.
If you are new to ShoeDazzle you can go buy a Groupon and get your first pair or bag for only $19 (1/2 off). You can buy 1 per person + 1 as a gift. This is only good on new ShoeDazzle accounts. The reason that I am listing multiple Groupons is that once a sale ends you usually are able to use it in 24 hours. So if you are in a hurry then you would want to purchase the earliest now or maybe you get paid in a day or 2 and need to wait until then to buy it. There is also the possibility that you would need to buy more than one.
