Is liking to shop a gene? One that is more prevalent in some people (i.e. women) than others?
For me, shopping for clothes is something that I enjoy... but, due to being picky about things like fit and style, can end up frustrating. Then there are purses, which are fun to shop for, but the price usually turns me away from the handbag section as a whole.
But then there's shoes. Shoes, shoes, shoes.
My feet always stay the same size and, whether I'm trying on boots, pumps, sandals or more, they always look good. I think I could spend all day in a shoe or department store just browsing all of the stylish options and dreaming about bringing them home with me.
However, that doesn't happen. For one, the footwear section in the stores are often crowded and messy and it's hard to see everything in the chaos that surrounds me. Plus I have to try to keep Big Sister E from trying on all the pairs she can reach, Little Sister B from pulling down pretty much everything and my husband from rolling his eyes in boredom. Not particularly all that enjoyable, really.
To top it all off, there's the price tag. As beautiful and hopefully well-made that shoes can be, not to mention that they can complete an outfit but... how much does that sticker say? No, thanks. I would love to have a whole closet full of shoes but not until there is a better and much more affordable way to find and purchase them.
Which is why I'm thrilled to have been introduced to Jenlinn.com.
A new online shoe store in the world of internet shopping, Jenlinn.com was founded only recently with the idea that by combining high quality, low prices and stellar customer service, women can end up with an overall better shopping experience (and, let me add, some pretty awesome shoes).
Are you heading to a fancy post-New Year's bash anytime soon? Add a little glam with the NINA-1 Women's Toe Heel shoes and you'll be ready to shine no matter what you pair them with. Available in six great colors (the purple is a lot of fun), I'm pretty sure I've seen shoes just like these in the store for around $40 or $50. At Jenlinn, they're $24.99 and look just as hot.
Or, if heels aren't on your list right now (they don't go too well with my sweats or jeans), I'm already drooling over the great sandals that Jenlinn.com has to offer. I know, I know, it's January and there is snow everywhere, but the Flat T-Strap Women Gladiator Sandal LENA-8 are just so cute! And with eight different colors and a retail price of only $25, I'd love to be ready for spring with this great fashion statement!
However, what this season is really calling for? Boots. Everywhere I turn, I see all shades, designs and lengths of boots that are not only completely in style, but also very practical for the cold. Jenlinn has more than just one category for boots, they have them broken down for easy browsing by Ankle Boots, Mid-Calf Boots, Knee High Boots and Thigh High Boots. That's a lot of boots!
After going over and over (and over) the options, I finally decided on the JENNIFER-5 Women Suede Upper Low Top Boots in Grey and was pleased at how easy it was to create an account on Jennlin.com and that I was sent an immediate email confirmation of my order.
Unfortunately, due to the fact that those are such cute boots, it wasn't long before I was informed they were out of stock in my size. But, what I really appreciated, was that Jenlinn didn't just tell me that, they also suggested a pair that was extremely similar and were definitely available. Now that's helpful service!
And, when the KITTY-3 Women Suede Upper Boot in Grey arrived, I was just as happy with how fashionable and stylish they are.
The synthetic suede is smooth and soft, the man-made lining slides on easily and the small ¾" heel is just enough that it gives a tiny lift while still being extremely comfortable. I wasn't sure on what I would think of the adjustable buckle, but, after seeing these in person and wearing them around, I'm happy with it. It gives the boots a little extra pizazz!
After having worn these around quite a bit, I love them! They're just the thing to pull on when I want something more than tennis shoes yet don't want more of a dressy-type of boot with heels. Plus, they're extremely comfortable so it's a win-win situation all around!
So, whether you're looking for a great pair of boots to get through the winter or a new pair of wedges so that you'll be prepared as soon as spring arrives, Jenlinn.com has them at the right price and, even better, they're backed by their 100% satisfaction guarantee - you'll love your new shoes or you get your money back. Simple as that!
How are your feet looking this season? No matter what color or height boots you choose at Jenlinn and what you pair them with, you will look chic and fashionable and ready for whatever cold weather Mother Nature throws at you. Thanks to their generosity, two people will be prepared to beat the chilly temperatures with either color of a pair of hot boots, because...
