ShoeDazzle is a monthly shoe, clothing, and accessories subscription service. You can shop their merchandise like normal retail, but they have a VIP subscription that gives you better prices – almost everything is only $39.95 (or less) for VIPs. When you sign up for a membership, you complete a style profile. On the 1st of every month, they release new styles and you can pick any item you want – either from your personal ‘Showroom’ or across the site. You can also skip the month. However, if you don’t pick or skip, you get charged $39.95 store credit to spend any time.

ShoeDazzle June 2020 Review
This month's ShoeDazzle did not include an invoice statement or coupons/samples. Onward with the review!
Avelyn Slip on Sandals, Size 9.5 — Retail Value $59.95, VIP Price $39.95
I am a sucker for the color orange; it is far and away my favorite color. I feel like orange is becoming a bigger statement color this season-- which extremely pleases me. When I saw this faux crocodile skin pair of orange sandals that happen to have a low heel, I had to try them out! Don't they have such a '60s vibe? I can envision them being worn with a psychedelic floral tent dress, big Lucite earrings, and oversized Jackie O' style sunglasses!
I love the style of these sandals, but the fit is where I am not so in love. I have an immensely high instep and on top of that my feet are wide. Especially my left foot that I broke nearly six years ago in a domestic diva accident (I was attempting to clean and cook in my kitchen and slipped on water. TRUE STORY). The shoes are a bit tight on and I keep hoping they will expand a bit. I wonder if I put in a shoe stretcher if that might help? They are so close to fitting me-- I feel like one of Al Bundy's customers trying to misguidedly shove my ample foot into a small shoe! If these had elastic on the side, oh my goodness-- I would be made in the shade! Until I figure out what I am going to do with these beauties, allow me to daydream about wearing them with the red, orange, green, pink, and yellow Hawaiian muumuu sitting in my closet.
Verdict: This month's ShoeDazzle was a mixed bag. I love that I was finally able to find a pair of one-inch heels that I liked, but the fit is just not 100% there. They are snug on the strap going across my foot and have little to no stretch. I keep hoping they will magically fit, which is silly to even entertain because I could easily (and reluctantly) return these shoes to ShoeDazzle for an exchange! Decisions, decisions!
I do love ShoeDazzle for their namesake: shoes. However, my one constant complaint is their lack of plus size clothing options! I feel like such a broken record in that regard. I counted a total of seventy-one plus size items. That might seem reasonable... 'til you go in the straight-size section. The straight size dresses section has ONE HUNDRED ITEMS alone. That isn't taking into account skirts, pants, tops, and swimwear in straight sizes, mind you. In addition, they only carry up to a 3x in plus-- which isn't terribly inclusive, especially with the inconsistent sizing. If their selection was broadened to accommodate plus sizes better, they might find they make even more sales. Offer the same options for straight in plus too, please! I would LOVE to review their plus size clothing for you guys more frequently-- if they decided to broaden their selection. Bodacious babes want cute clothing too, ShoeDazzle! Regardless of this, when I do find options for myself, I must rave about their member benefits like their point system and the sales they offer for VIP members. The savings and sales are what keep me coming back. I am hopeful and eager to see more plus items being offered in the July selections-- fingers crossed, am I right?
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes, this pair is still available for purchase!
Value Breakdown: The sandals I purchased this month have a retail value of $59.95, but with my VIP membership I spent $39.95 before shipping and handling! That means I saved $20; that is roughly a savings of 25%!
