Pop quiz! What's the easiest way to move your outfit from drab to FAB? Step into a pair of super chic new heels!
I got my start in the fashion industry as a model at the age of 13, and have worn pretty much every high-end designer and ready to wear label imaginable. What I can tell you from years of experience on the runway and the red carpet, is what often separates a good outfit from a great one is not about the money – it’s about the heels!
I collect wardrobe staples – great fitting pairs of jeans and slacks, sleek blazers, flatteringly fit dresses and cute tops – and elevating their style with the hottest heels I can find.

When it comes to heels, stilettos are my absolute favorite and my motto is: the higher, the better – and the sexier!
Okay, so stilettos may not be as comfortable as flats, but take it from me: as the heel gets higher, so will your confidence! Think about it… When you see two women walk into a party, one in simple ballet flats and the other in a pair of sleek stilettos, who commands your attention?
Take a basic, blank chalkboard sort of outfit, like skinny jeans, a white T-shirt and black blazer or the perfect-fitting LBD, and the footwear world is your oyster! The neon trend is so hot right now, and you can get the look just by adding a pair of hot pink patent platforms, like my JustFab Liz pumps, to your basic duds. Or, if you want for a more girly-girl sophisticated bombshell look, try a pair of JustFab Paula pink and snakeskin peep-toes.
I love animal print heels (especially leopard!) because you can get a little bit wild without making the ultimate rumble in the jungle. JustFab’s Janna ankle strap peep-toes are perfect for a night out with the girls, while Esme platform pumps are sure to steam up date night with your honey.
If you opt to attire with powerful prints or embellishments, you may want to opt for simple but chic heels. Pay attention to the best dressed starlets on the red carpet, who pair their fabulous and eccentric frocks with strappy metallic heels or even simple solid colored stilettos. JustFab’s Barb, Sanaya and Cher are all style staples that will work with a variety of outfits.

If you are still unsure about how to pick out the perfect heels for your outfit, get a little inspiration by flipping through the pages of a magazine and paying attention to what all of the top fashionistas are rocking. JustFab has all the hottest designer looks for a fraction of the price, so once you find your designer style you can get the same look without maxing out your credit card.
Last, but certainly not least, remember to stand up straight and walk with confidence – if you believe you are FABulous, so will everyone else!
