JustFab Monthly Shoe and Accessories Subscription: Cute and Trendy with Fab Price!

I am so excited to share my latest "monthly" subscription: JustFab!  Unlike my other monthly subscriptions which are beauty-related, this one is for shoes and accessories. Yes, it is my newest addiction...and you will see why! Cute, sexy, and trendy shoes and accessories with affordable prices? What is not to love?

The Scoop on JustFab: On-Trend Shoes and Accessories for only $39.95 per month!!!
JustFab, created by the beautiful Kimora Lee Simmons, is a members-only online shopping "Shoe Club" website. All items on the site are the same low price of $39.95 (which equals one credit that you can use for one item on the site)! Plus, free shipping. Wow! Oh! When you sign up (depending on their current promotions), you get from 20-50% off your first item. What a deal!!!

As any fashionable girl knows, keeping up with shoe trends is an expensive habit! JustFab stays on top of the current styles and offers a variety of shoes, handbags, jewelry, jeans, sunglasses, and misc accessories that are all *on trend*! As with any "monthly"-type subscription/club, there is a standard fee for each month. Do you not feel like spending on shoes and accessories every month? No problem, you simply opt to skip the month and you will not be charged.

If you want to look cute...but don't want to spend a fortune keeping up with current trends, then this site is for you!!! The shoes range from cute flats to sexy sky-high pumps and trendy boots and wedges. The jewelery featured is glamorous, sparkly, and trendy. Definitely statement pieces. The bags are categorized into clutches, cross-body, hobos, and totes. No matter what size and style bag you like to carry, they likely have something for you! 

When you sign up, you take a style quiz. Your personal stylist will select some shoes, handbags, jewelry, etc is generated based on your results from the quiz. You can either shop from your hand picked selections, or choose from a variety of other items available on the website.

On a monthly basis, you will get an email from the JustFab stylists which contains your monthly botique which contains items based on your style quiz. You can either choose to purchase an item or not. If you opt not to purchase, then you can elect to "skip a month" by noting this in the appropriate place on the JustFab site. If you do not tell them you are "skipping the month", then you will be charged the standard $39.95 fee which will give you one credit that you can use to get one JustFab item at any time.

Think about how much you typically spend (or would like to spend) on shoes and accessories...when I do the math, I realize what a truly good deal JustFab is!

Membership Perks: The referral program: (earn free items!)
Besides getting fabulous deals on shoes and accessories, you can earn credits towards free items by referring your friends. When you sign up and become a VIP member (this is what JustFab calls its subscribers), you will get a personal referral code to share with your friends. When your friends sign up and make a purchase, you can get credits towards free items.

The great price and membership perks aside, there is a bottom line question: Are the products of good quality and are they as cute in person...Yes and yes! To find out more, keep reading! You will see my very first JustFab items: The "Ananda" quilted riding boot and the "Power Player" handbag

I will admit, as cute as everything looks online, I was not sure how the quality would be. I am a bargain-shopper at heart. Yet, the main area that I splurge: nice shoes and handbags. So, will I be able to love bargain shoes and accessories? These were the questions running through my head before my items arrived.

While I love supple leather shoes and handbags, the prices for designer shoes and handbags are just so high. Even if you are not on a budget, you have to be picky and decide which items to invest in. When you go with JustFab, you pay less. So, you will be able to get that designer look for less (and be able to have more items and a greater variety!).

So, how is the quality? While I was skeptical before my items arrived, as soon as I opened the box, I was in love! The items far exceeded my expectations! I think I might have actually squealed when I opened the box, lol! ;) Also, I have to mention how extremely well packaged everything was! The boots were stuffed and wrapped with tissue. The handbag was wrapped with plastic and tissue with tissue and plastic taped over the hardware as well.

The boots and handbag that I ordered are synthetic (and I will admit that I miss the leather smell). But, the quality is really stellar! The boots and the handbag are very well constructed and of very good quality. They certainly look way more expensive than they are!

What I got:

Boots: "Ananda"
While it is not nearly boot weather here in GA yet, I couldn't resist getting these adorable flat riding boots in preparation for Fall!!! As soon as the weather gets cooler, I will be living in my leggings. So, I wanted something comfortable and fashionable to wear with my assortment of leggings. I am a stay-at-home Mommy. So, I want to be comfortable (yet chic!). These boots are perfect for my lifestyle. I can wear these when out and about with my baby. I will not be sacrificing fashion for comfort when I wear these. They are casual yet fashionable. Just perfect!!!
The boots are comfortable too! Granted, I have only worn them around the house since it is so hot outside; but, I am very pleased with how they feel. The Ananda is a quilted knee high boot with a one-inch flat heel. I would say that these run true-to-size. Since recently having a baby, I have gone up a 1/2 size (so that is strange!). The boot is quilted and features a size zipper for getting in and out of the boot. The boot is a bit loose on my calves. But, this is no surprise to me as my legs are quite thin.
I totally love these boots! I am so excited to wear them once it gets colder!!!

Handbag: "Power Player"
I absolutely adore this pretty handbag!!! It is clearly designer-inspired. I was immediately drawn to it because it is so similar to my beloved Michael Kors bag that I have in black. Actually, just for comparison's sake, I am including a photo of my Michael Kors bag next to the JustFab Power Player bag. While they are similar, the Power Player is not an exact knock-off. The Michael Kors bag is slightly bigger and roomier with longer handles (and is made of real leather). With that said, if you are wanting a Michael Kors bag, but don't want to pay the high price...the Power Player bag will give you the same general look!
 As you can see, there is a difference in softness with these bags.
But, the Michael Kors bag has been used for about 2 years and is
very broken in. The JustFab bag is brand new! 
Also, the Michael Korsbag is empty in this picture.

I love the color of the Power Player bag. It is a light pinkish beige. Actually, it looks much more beige in person. I am totally impressed with the quality of this bag! No, it does not feel exactly like real leather (it is much more stiff); but, the quality is very nice! What impresses me most is the hardware. The hardware is heavy-duty and very shiny. At first glance, this really does look like a designer bag! It even has a lot of the details of the Michael Kors bag like the little hidden key on the handles. It is beautifully lined on the inside with pockets for your phone as well as an additional pocket and zipper pocket. This color will literally go with everything. I am obsessed with this bag and totally love it!!!
Me and my fav new bag! :)

As you can tell, I am a huge fan of JustFab! I am absolutely thrilled with the items that I got! The handbag and the boots are super stylish.

JustFab releases new items monthly. I can't wait to get my email to see what is in next month's boutique! I already have my eye on a couple pairs of flats, some high heel booties, a tote bag, and some jewelry!

Stay tuned for more JustFab reviews in the future! I plan to do a monthly JustFab feature with reviews and "outfit of the day" looks as well as a (insert drumroll here...)...Giveaway! That is right! I will be hosting a JustFab Fall giveaway (for one item: Winner's choice) in September!!!

In the meantime, be sure to sign up for JustFab if you are interested. The price just can't be beat. I am amazed at how nice the quality and style is for just $39.95 per month/item!!! Just click on any of the JustFab links in this post for my referral link.

I got these items as samples; but,
I have also purchased items from
JustFab myself.

Do they charge you a fee of $40 a month and then the shoes are another $40 on top of that?? Ive read reviews claiming this and I want it cleared up. I'm guessing they just forgot to skip the month and were just angry about that. Thanks for you time =)

@Anonymous-They charge $40 a month unless you skip. The $40 is for one credit. You are not charged an additional $40
