Shoesday Tuesday- The Showroom Showdown

Can I get some props for the fabulous alliteration in that title? I mean, come on, folks- that is some decent work if I do say so myself. And I thought writing titles for these blog posts was my WEAKNESS. I should have known better.

Anyway, as you know, I'm a member of the two rival online shoe "stylist" companies- Shoe Dazzle and Just Fabulous. It occurred to me the other day that I had neglected to show you my February Showroom selections from each company, but lucky for me, there was a Tuesday remaining in the month. Hence, the title of this post. But I digress. So without further ado, I present Just Fabulous February Showroom:

My first reaction? "Meh." I am underwhelmed. Or am I? Could it be that I've seen so many shoes and have so many shoes and am constantly on the look-out for new and exciting shoes that I've just OD'd a bit on shoes? Because upon closer inspection, there are some lovely choices up there. After all, Ynez is pretty rockin' and you should see her in red! Pascale is an awesome shade of purple and that ruffle detail is pretty awesome. And I'm kind of in love with Darcy- she's available in some neutral options, too, but the red is kind of fierce, actually. So, after calmly progressing from underwhelmed to vaguely interested, I decided to check out Shoe Dazzle's February Showroom: 

Ok, now I'm overwhelmed. Especially with the four ADDITIONAL shoes in my showroom that are currently "Sold Out" and therefore I can't get a good picture to show you. (And don't think I didn't notice they have the exact same shoe in there, but in a different color option. You're not fooling anyone, Shoe Dazzle! I'm on to you!) But seriously, what happened to the unique personalization of my shoe selections? Lately is seems as though Shoe Dazzle is getting less and less personal and more and more interested in just shoving as many shoes in my direction as my inbox will take. 

Which brings me to another point: BOTH of these companies bombarded my email account with Valentine's Day specials to the point where I stopped reading the emails and simply clicked "delete" as soon as one arrived in my inbox. And while their special Valentine's shoes were cute, they were mostly red and we all know I have plenty of red shoes in my life. Plenty. So, in conclusion, I have to say, I might be canceling my accounts with both companies. Mostly the emails just annoy me and I have yet to be so in love with a shoe that I simply HAD to buy it. I think I gave it a decent run, though. Sorry, Kim Kardashian, it looks like your fancy shoe company just might not be for me. And for whomever owns Just Fabulous, congrats on a better execution of the same idea as KK's Shoe Dazzle, but in the end, I just don't think our relationship is working out. It's not you. It's me. Oh, wait, no- it IS you. 

Like shoes as much as (or more than) me? Then tweet about it with my hashtag #ShoesdayTuesday and let's get talking!
