Just Fab Review

I learned about Just Fab a LONG time ago, but never tried it out. Shoes for $39.95 a pair just screams "Cheap, poorly made" shoes. I mean, I have a thing for shoes, and don't get me wrong, I have shoes from Payless and Target in my closet. But I am super picky about my shoes, if I am buying cheap shoes, they need to look good. And I have learned the hard way when buying online, that you will not always find the winner. Not to mention, if I am buying shoes online, I absolutely, positively have to know the brand and my size. I don't have time for the hassle of returns.

But last week, while looking for a pair of shoes, I came across a totally adorable pair of booties. They were part of the Just Fab LUXE line. These are priced higher than the $39.95 shoes, and if you subscribe to their monthly VIP program, you get a deeper discount. The VIP program charges you $39.95 each month that you can apply to a purchase on their site. But you can skip as many months as you want and call and cancel anytime. I am not impressed when a company makes me call to cancel. This was a bit of a turn off. But then I thought, you know what, the reviews I seem to find, didn't seem to tell me much about the quality. Now I was on a mission.  So for the sake of research, I signed up for their monthly VIP program. I ordered a pair of booties and then skipped a month. This way I could receive these and decide what I wanted to do from there.

The booties I ordered arrived packaged in a nice sturdy shoe box inside another box. They were wrapped well to prevent the booties from rubbing against each other. So far I am impressed.

I purchased these booties called Ellis. I will say for the price ($54.95 normally with the VIP Program, but with the VIP Program discount and it being my first purchase, I was able to score these for a mere $20!) But I will review them against their $54.95 value. They are real leather and the details are nice. There was a little glue around the heel that was barely visible, but there none the less. The zipper feels sturdy and the craftsmanship looks good. I would say these are equal in quality to shoes that cost more than double the original value of these shoes.

I am between three sizes in shoes. It all depends on who makes these shoes. I normally range anywhere from a 7.5 to an 8.5. Booties I tend to go between 8 and 8.5 and usually will buy an 8.5 so I can wear them with thick socks if I want. I would say, I would have been fine with these in an 8. The 8.5's aren't exactly big, but just not my desired fit. But a thick pair of socks instantly takes care of the issue, and since they don't have an 8 and I'm really digging these booties, I plan on keeping them.

Just Fab has other items besides shoes available on their site. But as picky as I am with shoes, I am even pickier about my handbags. And without knowing the quality of the clothes, I am just not up for trying it. I know, I know, I'm the girl who loves me some Target, so you would think I would be all over this. But nope! I am going to keep the Just Fab until I find one more pair of shoes to try. I am going to TRY and see if I like one of their regular $39.95 pairs. That would strictly be for review purposes of course! I think after that, I will most likely cancel. I just have way too many shoes to have 12 more pairs added to the mix on top of what I will most likely buy over the course of the year! (Did I just admit that out loud?!) But who knows, if they have more cute, hard to resist shoes like these booties, I may be in trouble!

  1. Thanks for this! Nice review. What size sweatshirt did you get? Do you think it runs small or the sleeves were just too tight for you personally?

  2. I have been curious to try this but hesitant because I also like to try shoes on and see quality. I've been ordering shoes from ModCloth with success, which gives me more curiosity to try this! And now this review. I appreciate your honesty and thorough review of the experience!
