ShoeDazzle put Julia in their BOGO last month, I was drawn to the bargain and decided to give the turquoise a try. I didn't have that color in my collection and they didn't appear to be as pointy as some of those atrocious things. Word was that they ran tight, so, knowing that pointy toes fit me oddly, I went with the 6.5 and ShoeDazzle managed to get them to me in about a week and in perfect condition.
Oh. My. Gawd. I freaking LOVE these shoes. LOVE. They fit like a glove and are sexy as hell. They're only a 3.5" heel, so they proved to be great while running around the office and on errands for about 16 hours. The point still bugs me a little, but they're not that extended point that some have. They're more of an almond toe that comes to a point instead of being rounded off. This new found love is so shocking that when I told a friend about them, his response was that the next thing you know, I'd be liking orange. (NEVER!)
I don't know that these have completely opened my mind up on this style, but I will no longer automatically skip over all pointy toed shoes while shopping. Because what I really need is to have more options in shoes.
I have a point.
