Shoe Porn!!:Spring Edition 2015:Iron Fist

I end my Spring shoe guide with a brand I am obsessed with! I own their clothes and handbags as well as their kick ass shoes! Iron Fist wascstarted by two skaters in 2001 and since then the brand has hired many skaters and artists to create their one of a kind prints. They create well made shoes with a punk twist and the price is so afforable with no shoe priced over $80!!

Shoe Porn!!:Spring Edition 2015:Miista Shoes

I absolutely adore shoes! I think a great pair of shoes can really make an outfit pop! For years I have been shopping certain brands and as I discover new ones I feel like I won the lottery! I am always on the look out for whimsical yet comfortable shoes and usually keep mum on my favs as I hated to share until now readers! I am highlighting this week my fav shoe brands who feature the perfect shoes for Spring!

First up is Miista Shoes. I only discovered this UK based brand when RackedNy sent me their sample sale newletter and I wasn’t disapointed! The shoes can run a size small but their sandals run true to size and the unusual prints and treatments used on their shoes are so worth the hassle!

Need to know: Promtimes.co.uk

image

We usually do not pick a site for review but with such price-friendly dresses, we thought this site, known for prom dresses and custom tuxedos can do double duty as a go-to for event dressing.

Feature – colors

image

With about  30 colors for each design, there is an infinite amount of dresses to choose from at this site. We love that each color possibility is added in “swatches” on every page.

Feature – body conscious

image

For each size above 22W, an additional cost of 2.00 pounds is added to the price, making this on of the few sites that offer a body-friendly choice to every consumer.

For consumers with less standard sizing the site also offers tailoring for a fees. It takes from 3 to 14 days but worth it for the best fit.

Not sure of your standard size, check out the size chart.

Feature – On demand

All dresses are created on order so no worries about products that may have sat too long in the warehouse. Even though it takes up to 22 days for the garment to arrive, the quality is worth it. It is true we have “fast fashion” tendencies but this has “couture” quality.  In an hurry, skip tailoring and go for standard sizing.

Feature – all on one page

image

The website uses tabs to give you access to all information about  the website as well as other dresses you may love in one page !! Navigation is made easier and the look also makes the site mobile friendly.

So many choices and features, you must check out  http://www.promtimes.co.uk to get prices starting at 65 pounds in 30 colors.
