Sarah Stylin’

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to play dress up. There’s something about putting outfits together and prancing around in them that makes me happy. It’s kind of weird because I’m not a girly woman or a tomboyish woman, I’m somewhere in the middle.

Nonetheless, I love styling myself and other people. I know there are certain fashion trends everyone follows, but being able to style in-spite of trends is not something everyone can do.

Little known fact, I’ve always wanted to be a stylist. I’m not really sure why I’ve never told anyone that, but strangely enough people are always asking me to help them create a look or find pieces for them.

As a believer in the law of attraction, I’ve decided to run with this. There’s a reason why I love to create various looks, and others have asked on several occasions to style them.

I’ve created a section on my blog called “Stylin“, and here I will post different style photos I take. So don’t be a stranger to that section.

Here in this post, I’ve included photos from a session I like to call In living color. The look was inspired by the kick off of Mardi Gras 💜💚💛 season and of course the 90s. The jacket pictured, is one my mom has had for as long as I can remember. It’s an ode to New Orleans, one of my favorite cities.

90s fashion is my passion, I love everything about it! Majority of my looks will have 90’s incorporated somehow.

So stay tuned! I’m low key excited about this new venture, who knows where it’ll lead. For now, I’ll just have fun with it. 😎

6 Inch 

“Six inch heels, she walked in the club like nobody’s business

Goddamn, she murdered everybody and I was her witness”

“6 Inch” is my favorite song of Beyoncé’s Lemonade album and thought it’d be a cute title for a blog about shoes. I love that song!

Shoes photographed were purchased from Lola Shoetique 

I am one of those people who the older I get, the more I prefer to be barefoot.  However, I love my heels. I wear an 11, and it’s slightly challenging  to find shoes in my size. Very rarely can I walk into a shoe store and walk out with a pair of heels.

This post is specifically for the ladies who wear size eleven shoes.

Here you go ladies!

Since my undergrad years, Go Jane has been one of the online retailers I could purchase shoes from. In the beginning it was hard. They had a very limited selection, and did not restock often. Oh but now! They have a great variety of shoes for those of us with larger feet, and they restock quite frequently. Go Jane even has the option to be notified when they restock a particular item.

These were purchased from Go Jane

 

Lola Shoetique is another retailer I just absolutely adore. They also have a great selection of shoes in 11’s. With them, I find that the larger sizes go QUICKLY and they do not restock as often. When you find a shoe you like here, purchase ASAP, as it may be gone if you decide to wait. I’ve been purchasing shoes from them for a few years now. The shoes come packaged very well.

These are my summer favs

 

Charlotte Russe is another retailer that carry 11’s. Once upon a time they were my go to retailer for all things shoes, as of late, not so much. Charlotte, now has a very limited selection of 11’s, if you ask me. In addition, they do not restock as often. I find that now I do not purchase many heels from them, but I do purchase cute little everyday sandals.

Shoedazzle as many of you may know by now, is a retailer that gives you a personal stylist after you answer a series of fashion questions. They send you a monthly boutique, shoes are 39.95 with VIP sign up, and you can skip the month of you don’t see anything you like. They have a pretty great selection of 11’s, but rarely does my boutique have something I just have to have. Oh but when they do, I get them! I am not exactly sure how they handle restocking, as they’ve never ran out of anything I’ve wanted to purchase. I think they may even have shoes larger than 11.

I believe these were purchased from Lola Shoetique

 

I have yet to purchase shoes from this retailer, but they are certainly on my radar. Smash Shoes sell shoes specifically in sizes 10-13. AWESOME! They have the latest styles, so one doesn’t have to worry about not being trendy. I’ve read great things about Smash Shoes and I’ll definitely be purchasing from them.

These were just a few of the retailers I know of that carry larger sizes. If you may know of any others let me know , and I’ll add them to the list. I want to spread the word to other women who want trendy shoes.

Cheers to all the shoemakers and retailers who recognize that women with larger feet love to be fashionable too! Ladies be proud of your shoe size!

I love my long feet and toes
