Louboutins . Worth the red sole?

October 18, 2010

It wasn’t until about 3 years about that I really started to notice the Christin Louboutin trend. Yes, I agree that these are elegant and probably very comfortable shoes (I can only make a guess since I don’t own any), but is the red sole really worth the price tag? These pastel pumps are pretty darn cute… and knowing they come with the brand name makes them just that much better. Though, if I did get a pair of Loubs, you bet they’d be the patent leather black Very Prive. One day…. just one day….

The Ultimate Heel

September 16, 2010

Need a classic heel to wear to work? On a date? To a wedding? This is the perfect elegant heel.. and quite affordable too. What’s great about this shoe is the high backs that give a classic, unique touch to the heel. The color also is nude enough to not take away from an outfit, yet it will go with any color. That’s why is a great staple shoe for many occasions. And get this.. it’s under $100 from Aldo!

Is the shoe really worth the name?

April 29, 2010

That is the million dollar question tonight. Is the shoe really worth the name? Hmmm… I can’t decide, or else I wouldn’t be posing this question. Take, for example the classic black peep toe – Would you take the ‘Loubs or the generic pair (Members Only)?

So you probably noticed the differences already. The Christian Louboutin “Very Prive” heels have the elegant curve on the side, the hidden platform and the signature red sole. But is it worth the $795? Verses the other brand for $70?

Tell me what you think! Post your answers in the comments!

Does the heel really matter?

January 25, 2010

How much does a heel influence the kind of shoe that you buy? Do you only buy wedges? Stilettos? Flats? I am having a tough time deciding if I like the heel. No actually, I like them, but I have friends that hate both of these heels. What do you think? These are super comfy, but are they terrible looking?

H&M Holiday Sale!

December 9, 2009

I love H&M because their clothes are so affordable and I am so stoked that they have a Holiday Sale with tons of new clothing and accessories perfect for Holiday parties. Just let me warn you, if you go to their site, and click on Holiday, it’s a mess. It’s so hard to look through their stuff with clothing and shoes flying everywhere you move your mouse, so I do suggest hitting up a store.

However, I did manage to find these on the site and man… I need them… now!

1. Golden Holiday Shoes

For $14.95, you really can’t beat this price. Plus these shoes are the shiznit! Even if you only wear them once!

2. Fabulous Cardigan

$34.95. For Holiday parties and regular parties, you’ll definitely get good use out of this cardigan. The high neck will keep you extra warm and the cable pattern adds the perfect amount of detail without looking too overdone. Hot damn!

October 27, 2009

I went shopping this weekend and lo and behold! I spotted these beauties! Corso Como “Val” heels. They are super cute with the silver snakeskin and leopard print. Now usually I don’t go for mixed animal print, but I could not resist these. Fashionable, stylish and flirty. They make a great shoe to dress it up at work or to go out in, not to mention the comfortability factor. And if you act quick, you can get them for 30% off at Bloomies! Score!

Steve Madden Shoes on Sale!

October 12, 2009

Picture 1

This morning, in my inbox, I had a lovely email from Shop It To Me. I was very pleased to find that all these shoes and more were on sale from Steve Madden. What a great morning! I hadn’t been to Steve Madden for a while so I headed over to their site and wow… they have a ton of great shoes. What’s your best Steve Madden shoe find?

If you had all the money in the world…..

April 24, 2008

… what would you do? Ok, so I don’t mean all the money in the world.. but maybe 20 million. Hmm.. I often think that I’d live my life pretty much the same way, but I wouldn’t be forced to buy the small coffee instead of the large, or hem my own pants, just to realize they come undone 3 weeks later.

I mean, don’t get me wrong… I love to shop, but I really can’t afford much right now. I would love a pair of Manolo Blahniks, but truth be told, I’d probably feel awkward and selfish wearing such a high priced shoe… that really can’t be THAT much better than the $50 shoes that I bought 5 years ago on sale at Steve Madden, is it?

A girl can look, right? I just love those Christian Louboutin shoes also!!! So fancy!! Yup, I guess I’m just a normal city girl.
