If you are new to bikini/figure competitions, you may be curious as to which shoe is best for stage.  There are so many styles and many of them look similar.

This is the correct shoe! It is by the company “Ellie” and the shoe is Brook.
Specs:
Color: Clear

  • Heel measures approximately 4.75″
  • Platform measures approximately 0.75″
  • Pig leather insole
  • Heel measures approximately 5 inches, platform 0.75 inches
  • Available in whole sizes only. Half size order upThis shoe fits true to size!! I love it. You will see most competitors wear this exact shoe.Where should I get it?
    Amazon.com has this exact shoe for about $25.
    You can do a google search for it, but you will get lots of different Brook/Brooke Styles and heel heights.
    Be sure the specs are the same as above. This is not an expensive shoe.Benefits:
    The base of this exact shoe is perfect. Your toes don’t dangle over the end. Some shoes that ‘look’ like it have a more narrow base.

    It’s seriously  comfortable the minute you put it on for the first time.

    It’s easy to walk in. Seriously easy to walk in.
    Confidence level.. sky high!

    When should I order shoes?
    Now. If you have decided to compete, don’t wait another minute. Order your shoes! Having your shoes makes it real. You need to practice walking too.

    Do I have to ‘break them in’?
    I didn’t have to at all. They are awesome. Fit’s like a dream from day 1 to stage. Even as I lost body fat, I just tightened the straps.

    Shouldn’t I get a strapless shoe? Straps make my legs look fat?
    My first coach told me that.  That’s weird.  I had strapless shoes and my toes fell out over the toe of the shoe.  I like this better. You can get what you want unless your federation says differently.

    UPDATE 2016  I have had 2 pairs of these in the last year. I practice a lot in my shoes so I blew them out. I’m not going to lie, I bought an extra pair with me to my last show.  However, I jumped on Amazon and had them the next day.

    I want shoes with crystals.
    You can add your own if you like. I stoned my shoes in 2013.
    I actually bought this pair from Amazon too.
    I thought it would be good.

    shoeI actually did not wear these in 2015 but I did in 2016. They were great.

    Funny story: A girl at a show I worked, had a broken strap on her shoes. She said it broke a few weeks before the show but she was too lazy to get a new pair. Her body was banging but she walked like she was hobbled. Her T walk was  terrible. I can’t even!

     

    I wish you much luck in your competition!!

Fabletics review: Your must have leggings

Holiday must have!

This is the Salar Legging from Fabletics.  I love this legging! You need 2 pair of these. Here me out.

The picture does not do this legging justice. The color is Black/Silver/icicle print. It’s maximum compression and it fits beautifully even with all your booty gains. It’s going to look hot on you.
This IS the perfect holiday legging!  You can rock this with black boots and
a sweater or dress it up hot with some heels! It’s seriously the perfect go to for the holidays.

The reason you need two pairs is : you will have these for years to come. This will be your holiday party go to  item!! This is a Fabletics fabric that came out for the winter. Who knows if we will continue to see it!

Pricing: VIP pricing for this legging is $54.95 and it comes in lengths
Short/Reg/Tall. Sizing is size 0 to size 20.

I’m not mad at Lululemon for their lack  of sizes but I do want you to know Fabletics sizing is xxs-xxl.  Girls  with booties can buy cute pants here!

Are these workout leggings or going out leggings?
You can rock your workouts in this legging because it is NOT see through. It passes the Squat test, dead lift, burpee  and the pilates test too.

(Pilates test is having your pants stay up while you do the advanced roll up.)

Salar leggings/capris always pass this test.

This legging is soft and  it’s super comfortable. It fits true to size. I’m a size 8 and I have a medium.  It’s a perfect pant

BTW. the Salar Legging comes in 32 different prints.

  Cute top  option 1 is the  Switch Back Tee II. I have this. It is so cute on!
You can add the Hudson Bralette in  Black/Silver/Icicle too.
Switch back Tee II is VIP price $19.95
Hudson Bralette II is also VIP: $19.95

This  is the Aruba Wrap Top II and it comes in 4 colors! It is so cute
and only VIP: $19.95

The Psyllos Sweater is gorgeous! It’s perfect with the Salar Legging!
VIP is $49.95 for this sexy sweater!
 Accessories!

Of course you need the matching headband! It’s so cute and festive. Ladies.. if your girls are hooked on Lululemon, they are going to love Fabletics!!  The accessories are super cute!  You don’t have to spend $108 on leggings for your teens.

You can get your first outfit for just $25! Free shipping and returns.
