Paging Canadian Fashionistas!
Here’s a little something different for you. If you haven’t heard of BeachMint – parent company of JewelMint.com, StyleMint.com and ShoeMint.com – listen up, cause this may be the answer to your search for frugal and fashionable finds. And in breaking news – they now ship to Canada!
How it works:
1. Create a FREE StyleProfile so you can be paired up with the looks that suit you most.
2. Every month, you’ll receive personalized suggestions based on your profile. Choose to buy or skip a month in the first 5 days at no charge.
3. If you love what you see, great news! It’s affordable too. ALL StyleMint.com and JewelMint.com pieces are just $29.99 USD, and ShoeMint.com items are $79.98 USD. So, you always know what to expect when it comes to pricing, and may be pleasantly surprised with the selection.
StyleMint.com features product designed by Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen; JewelMint.com is co-designed by Kate Bosworth and celebrity stylist Cher Coulter; and ShoeMint.com, the most recently launched partnership is co-designed by Rachel Bilson and celebrity stylist, Nicole Chavez. Legendary shoemaker Steve Madden manufactures the shoes.
The only caveat: Once you make your first purchase, you have officially “joined” the club. Then, if you don’t opt out in the first 5 days of each subsequent month, you’ll be charged $29.99 (StyleMint and JewelMint) or $79.98 (ShoeMint) as a membership charge. This appears as a credit and can be used to purchase an item that month – but for busy gals such as myself who may not remember to opt out, it can definitely add up to unnecessary purchases. So be forewarned!
I received some goodies from each of the ‘Mints, including these crazilicious “Pauline” wedge platforms from their Winter Debut Collection.
Elevate your Fall/Winter wardrobe with our leg-lengthening suede platform bootie. Named after Nicole’s grandmother, Pauline, the gold corset detail and matching cord offer a vintage touch to this avant-garde, sculpted silhouette. 2″ platform and 6″ wedge heel.
Oh you read that right. 2″ platform and 6″ wedge heel.
While I can’t deny the shoes are sizzling hot, I haven’t quite mastered the art of walking in a heel quite so high (I normally max out at 4.5 inches before I start to teeter). So rather than show you a picture of me
balancing standing in the shoes, here’s Rachel Bilson doing a much better job of promoting these bangin’ booties. (Though hear this: give me a few weeks and I’ll be back with a video of me strutting in these puppies! #promise)
Shipping to Canada is very reasonable – from $9.99 to $19.99.
