Hello, new shoes

Guess what arrived today?

Jeffrey Campbell Lana Fab in Cat Tapestry!

I was overjoyed and at shock when I got my very first pair of JCs. I've spent over year admiring the classic Litas in every style imaginable, on Lookbook, blogs, streets etc. Can't describe how happy I am to finally wear my very own.

The prettiest shoe box I have ever seen in my life.

Why this? When there are so many other styles out there? In fact, the Cosmic Lita was on top of my list! I also loved Clinic and maybe Maddow for every day wear. But I simply couldn't resist the combination of kitties and that curved heel. I knew I had to get it.

The shoes are larger than expected. They are very heavy (heavier than Dmarts) and bulky looking. The volume and shape will make everyone's feet look bigger. Boyfriend says it's shaped like a lobster claw and I had to agree! These shoes is not for everyone. For a moment I was wondering if I could ever wear them out to take a bus or walk along the streets of my neighborhood without looking awkward.

Details of shoe:

For me, the sizing runs bigger by 1 US size. So I am a true US8.5 (EUR39) and ordered mine at US9 cause there wasn't half size. My shoes are 1cm bigger but was minimized by tightening of laces. Therefore, if you are getting your own and in doubt, go half a size smaller! Go half size up if you have wide feet. :)

JC Lana Fab is 5 inches tall with 2 inches platform. With the additional help of cuffed ankles, laces and chunky heel, my shoes are extremely comfortable to walk in. I'm not even lying, even my mom tried on and said it's comfy! Mom described them as "Lady Gaga shoes". The shoes has inner leather sole and lining. I do wish that the heels were darker and stacked instead of the light brown. Besides this there is nothing else I can complain about!

I get so thrilled just by thinking of outfits to go with. It's a really daring design so I'd probably go with maxi skirts or jeans with a plain top and outerwear. These shoes go better with legs covered in my opinion.

In case you're wondering. I purchased my shoes through a Solestruck spree by Smoochiezz and received them in exactly 3 week's time. The service provided by Smoochiezz was excellent and very informed, except that I had follow a fixed currency exchange rate of 1.42(USD). If you want to save cost, I'll suggest combining orders with a friend since Solestruck ships free for orders above USD$199.

I'm in love!
