I hate Loubs!!!
Christian Louboutin makes some of the most classic and beautiful shoes I will ever see and yet review after review women write of the woes of strutting in the discomfort of the 4-5inch beauties. It’s mental really. You spend c. £500 pounds on well made timeless shoes only to resign your feet to the numbness and inexplicable pain that (they say) is beauty. Why can’t we have it all? Why can’t I have my cake and eat it too damn it?!
Today, I was casually scanning through my emails when I noticed the ‘What’s New’ newsletter circulated by net-a-porter. The most beautiful pair of Louboutins instantly caught my attention and I had to circulate Miss Rigidaine to my team members. We ‘Oohhh-ed’ at the black patent leather pointies and ‘Ahh-ed’ at the clear PVC inserts. The signature red at the inner sides and sole brought life to the modernized D’orsay and the ‘Don’t Mess With Me’ 5 inch heels screamed ‘sexy’ in all languages.
As much as I love the beauty that is pain, I can’t bring myself to spend a whopping £595 on one pair of shoes and so I guess I will have to admire this beauty from a distance the hunched back of Notre Dame confined to the size of my wallet as the beautiful gypsy dances in the market square….. *sigh*
Ps: Has anyone seen photos from this year’s Met Gala? What happened to Lupita? I know there’s always a theme, but let’s try and keep things classy. Then again… no one is perfect right?
