Tall Girl Problems


So, if you follow me on Instagram (thee_shopaholic) you probably already know that I have been trying to revamp my shoe collection for the spring and summer. I am going to Mexico for Spring break so what better excuse to go shopping! For those of you that don’t know, I have big feet (insert sad face) so it is quite an ordeal for me to find shoes at the last minute. I often find myself buying shoes that I don’t need at the time for fear that when the time comes I won’t have the options. If a shoe fits, I buy it! Sometimes I buy it in all the colors!!! So I’m sure you can understand my new found love for a small, but growing franchise boutique called ShopRoxx.

Because I have a big foot (size 11) I often find that some shoes don’t fit as they should. This happens to people no matter what their shoe size is. Are you a size 7? Have you ever had to go a half size up or down because of the way a shoe fits? Have you ever had to go a WHOLE size up because of how a shoe fits? Well when you wear a size 11 you don’t have that second option because there often isn’t a size up. Of course when you consider some higher end brands like Christian Louboutin you know that sometimes that option is there. But who wants to spend a $1000 on a pair of shoes EVERYTIME!!! Not this frugal shopaholic.

ShopRoxx shoes just seem to always fit! And they are affordable! Any tall girl with a larger foot will testify that finding shoes isn’t easy.Finding cheap shoes is MUCH harder. So anytime I get the chance I pop into ShopRoxx located in Jamaica, NY and I see what new styles are in stock. I have to act quickly because often times for whatever reason my size is never in abundance. In the photo above you will find some of my latest purchases from ShopRoxx as well as some summer and Spring trend inspiration.

The first pair of shoes top left were purchased at ShopRoxx a few months ago. I was looking for a red pair of simple one-strap sandals with a bit of uniqueness about them. These “Strap My Chain Sandals” in the color Red are no longer available on the site but they do come in other colors, namely black and leopard print. So be sure to check it out if you like. If we continue across the top of the page to the right you will find a pair of green strappy sandals. These sandals can be found at NET-A-PORTER and retail for $695 by the brand Nicholas Kirkwood but ShopRoxx has an identical dupe in the colors Salmon and Black and they are only $27! The last pair of shoes at the top right once again are ShopRoxx and I must admit they are the least comfortable of the six, but I love the color and the heel height. Not to mention I love the wider ankle strap as it makes for more interesting outfit posts. They come in three colors bright pink (pictured), a black and a white.

Directly below that you will find a pair of shoes that flooded the social media networks at the end of 2013. These shoes were sold at ZARA but I missed out on getting my hands on them. Imagine my surprise when ShopRoxx added these dupes to their collection! They are still available and come in a Nude and a Blue shade if you already have the black ones and are looking for something a little different. Continuing clockwise you will find a colorful and Spring appropriate pair of Steve Madden heels. These minimal style heels juxtaposed against a bold print make for a very interesting shoe to add to a girls collection if I do say so myself. But retailing at $99 I didn’t feel they were timeless enough to make such an investment. I found a comparable pair with a considerably shorter heel at Payless a few weeks ago and I am satisfied with the compromise considering they were only $24 (YES I’m CHEAP but efficient). Last but not least I’m certain any shoe lover is familiar with the last pair at the bottom left the same story applies to the bottom right, originally sold at ZARA and available now at ShopRoxx for $30. I hope you found some Shoe-spiration in this post and if you find a pair of shoes that you love over at ShopRoxx.com send me a photo or tag me on Instagram and tell them Thee Shopaholic sent you! Happy Shopping!!!
