I had two separate orders like my last review for ShoeDazzle. This was due to them having a 30% off sale that I used on my first order. I later found a pair of blue velvet heels that intrigued me that I was able to use my credit from the snake booties’ return towards. Both orders came with a basic invoice along with Shoe Dazzle’s return and exchange policy.
They included another discount code for Nakedwines.com. I have received a few of these cards in subscription boxes and am tempted to use them with the holidays right around the corner!
ShoeDazzle also included a coupon for $30 off of a $60 order. The coupon is valid from 12-1-17 through 1-4-18. I am very confident I will use it before then. I have hearts in my eyes just thinking of what I will buy with that sweet discount!
Black Turtleneck Top, Size 3x – Retail Value $24.95, VIP PRice $16.95 (VIP Price 30% off sale price $11.86, Black Friday deal $8.48)
The 30% off deal came at a great time since I had wanted to get a basic black turtleneck for a while. There is something so chic and sexy about a turtleneck. I know, you are saying to yourself, “Nicole, how can a turtleneck be sexy when you are covered in fabric to your neck?” They have a mysterious quality and really flatter most figures. More is more in the case of the turtleneck. I think of smoky coffee houses and bongo playing beatniks when I think of turtlenecks too; which definitely holds appeal with me. I opted to pair this top with a camel faux suede braided mini skirt, silver hoops, my Shake Appeal necklace, a vintage felt hat from Valley Vintage and the boots that I ordered from ShoeDazzle as well. This turtleneck is incredibly soft and stretchy. It will look great with high waist jeans too and booties for an Oprah meets Steve Jobs power outfit. Heck, this top will look great with a number of skirts, jumpers, and pants. That is what makes it such a versatile value!
Mindy Block Heeled Boots in Black Velvet, Size 9.5 Wide Calf — Retail Value $79.95, VIP Price $44.94 (VIP Price 30% off sale price $31.45, Black Friday price $22.48)
I have been asked a lot about ShoeDazzle’s plus size/wide calf range and how they fit. I was curious as well and decided to try these boots out to see for myself. I must say, I am really impressed with them. My calves are rather thick. I measured them recently and found at mid-calf I am about eighteen inches around. These boots fit me amazingly, but they were a tad snugger fit on my slightly larger left calf. I have been trying to venture into wearing heels to see if my Barney Rubble feet can endure them. I walk like a toddler in their mother’s heels playing dress up. No exaggeration. These heels were very easy to walk in. If I can walk in them, then probably anyone can! Maybe my dog could even! I give these two thumbs up, way up! I know high school aged Nicole would be so envious of these boots since selections were lacking for big calved bodacious babes in the late 90s. These boots look great with any mini skirt or dress, but would also look divine with leggings, a long tunic, cropped jacket, and a large brimmed hat.
Neri Block Heeled Sandal in Teal, Size 9.5 – Retail Value $59.95, VIP Price $39.95 (VIP Price 30% off sale price $19.97, Black Friday price $19.95)
Remember how I thought I was getting better in heels? I WAS DEAD WRONG. I had a credit from the return on my first ShoeDazzle review burning a hole in my wallet. I had a lapse in judgment and ordered these gorgeous teal velvet black heels. I figured, “Hey they are block heels and I bet they will be easy to walk in!” Again, I was wrong. I couldn’t even walk in them past the one part in my front yard. There were a couple issues with these shoes. First issue was that they did not come in a wide option. My poor Barney Rubble feet barely could fit my toes into the tight sandal opening. Second is the matter of how my foot slides down and all the agonizing pressure is met at the ball of my foot and my cramped toes. Now, even though these were my personal version of h-e-double hockey stick doesn’t mean they aren’t another person’s idea of heaven. I am going to give these to a friend of mine that I sense can put them to better use. Aside from my personal agony, I thought these shoes were absolutely stunning. When it came to styling, I had my friend Alysse of the blog, Ready to Stare, in mind. She is the queen of wearing cute little socks with block-heeled sandals. I paired that combo along with a poofy ball skirt and a Divine t-shirt by Wacky Wacko. These heels would be ideal for any holiday party or for a more casual look you can wear them with skinny leg jeans and a black and white boat neck shirt.
Verdict: Regardless of the velvet teal stacked heels debacle of 2017, I still am enjoying ShoeDazzle! Plus, aside from the regular discounts, Shoe Dazzle offers sales rather regularly. My main gripe continues to be that their plus size options aren’t as extensive as the straight size selections. That goes along with their wide width items. They have a decent selection, but it could stand to be made even broader.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? It looks like these styles are still around as of writing this review, but act fast! Sometimes sizes can sell out!
