Cute and sassy Springtime pumps and wedges!

Springtime calls for a fresh wardrobe which includes pumps and wedges to match. Think bright colors with strappy or open-toed styles for the warmer weather. I love wedges year-round, but with Winter officially gone open-toe styles can finally be worn with skirts, dresses and shorts without having to freeze your toes off.

Here are a few cute pumps and wedges perfect for this season.

Shoedazzle review

Even with a closet full of shoes, who can resist adding another dazzlin pair to their collection ūüėČ

My husband obviously knows me well. He understands just as he needs room for all his computers and gadgets, i need enough space to satisfy my ever-growing shoe collection. He was sweet enough to customize a closet just for my shoes, which needs to expand at the pace I’m going. For Christmas he decided to dazzle me with another addition to my collection, and gave me a gift card so I may choose my first pair of shoes at Shoedazzle. Check out my experience with this online shoe-shopping website which has become an online¬†phenomenon.

Getting started

Shoedazzle is pretty much a shoe club, which allows you to select and purchase a new pair every month for $39.95. If you stop by their site, you’ll realize you can’t actually access their stuff unless you set up an account with them. Luckily, this process is pretty brief. In order for their stylists to recommend shoes which best suit you, you have to complete a short quiz.¬†Which includes your favorite celebrity’s fashion sense, heel style and such relevant questions. This step was kind of useless for me as I found most of the answers not suitable for my style, but you do have the option to leave certain questions blank. When you are done, a showroom is set up for you with personal recommendations by the Shoedazzle stylists which include: Kim Kardashian, Merika Rock, Mal Pearson, Melis Kuris, Heather Zweigel, Anya Sarre, and Provi Fulp. How cool would it be to have one of these ladies jobs as a shoe stylist?!

Time to shop!

Once you complete the above mentioned process, the fun begins! You can now browse all their shoes and accessories. The first time around I really didn’t see a pair that caught my eye. I saw a couple which definitely looked cute, but decided on holding off after the holidays to see new products the following month. That is another pretty cool thing about Shoedazzle, every month new styles are added and you do have the option to skip a month’s purchase if you’d like. They recently updated their service and scratched out the whole skip a month option, nothing will be charged on your account until you choose and make a purchase.

They do send you email updates when new shoes are added or any relevant news they might have. Which is how i came across a pair of wedges which made the cut! The ciji wedge in nude (pictured below) arrived at my home in approximately a week. If you read previous articles, you’ll know i love a good nude heel (or nail polish, or ¬†makeup look or dress!) I already have a couple nude heels, which is why I was excited to add a pair of wedges. Per the email their Ciji wedges had previously been feautured at Shoedazzle, and brought back by popular demand. Lucky me!

My Ciji wedges arrived in a pretty pink box, with a pink drawstring pouch for travel storage. I tried them on, and was glad that they looked even better in person! I already had a bunch of outfits planned out in my head which would look great with my wedges. Overall, client satisfaction was accomplished. Which in the end, should be what all businesses hope for.

*My doggie decided to make a guest appearance in a few of the pictures!

What next…

Since i purchased my first pair with a gift card, technically i won’t be charged for another month until I decide to update my billing information.¬†Though you are allowed to skip a month, as long as you click the option in your showroom prior to the dates given, for now I think i will just hold off on this. Nothing against Shoedazzle, I liked some of their styles but not enough to enroll into their monthly program. I also felt picks in my showroom were nothing special. Not necessiraly shoes I’d actually pick myself, which makes the whole stylist help pointless for me. Either way, I prefer choosing my own styles which explains the shoe stylist part of this not a benefit in my opinion. You can request new options are chosen for your showroom, but it takes 24 hours to update. That’s not too convenient in my opinion.

I definitely can’t complain about the price though. $39.95 for a pair of shoes is pretty reasonable, especially when it includes boots. They have nice collections which include their signature designs with a pink sole, casual styles, boots, accessories, and favorites of their stylists. Overall, the idea is a good one especially for a shoe lover. But it does have it’s pros and cons, as any other program might. They do offer a 20% discount on your first purchase, which I didn’t see applied at checkout during my first purchase… But I suppose receiving my wedges in a reasonable timely matter, and my overall satisfaction with them made it worthwhile.

*Update: I finally wore my wedges out, and loved how they pulled my outfit together. I was a bit disappointed in the material quality, as they ended up scuffed a bit on the side and the back of the heel had a few cuts. They are still very cute shoes, and for a quite affordable price you can’t expect top quality material.

Cute wedges for summer

Wedge heels are a great choice when you want to add height with a more comfortable feel.

They are available in different heights, fabrics and colors, so it’s easy to find one that suits your style. Open-toe wedges are perfect for showing off your pedicure around summertime! Gladiator wedges are a nice option for a relaxed look, and not as much height. Wedge heels offer more support than a stiletto or pump, with less strain to your ankle and foot. They are much more comfortable, and offer better balance.

Which is your favorite wedge heel?!

Check out a few cute wedges below and find one that matches your style! Wedge heels are pretty versatile and look great with jeans, skirts, dresses, shorts, and slacks. A nice pair of neutral or colorful wedges is a must in your wardrobe. A bright, or floral print wedge is a great option to add some color and personal style to a plain outfit.
