I got my first pair of Christian Louboutins (and in fact, my first pair of designer shoes) in June. It was an online purchase, made on a whim! I had found an amazing pair of patent leather, sky blue Manolo Blahniks, on sale, and when I showed my fiancé, he told me to buy them. I was in shock that he would OK a $595 pair of shoes on a whim but after considering his offer, I said that I wanted my first pair of designer shoes to be a "neutral" pair of Christian Louboutins. With my fiancé's OK, I decided to order a pair of black kid leather So Kates instead. When they arrived, I decided that they were far from being "neutral"; they were the sexiest pair of shoes that I had ever put on my feet! They inspire me to dress up more often, even if it's simply pairing heels with jeans to make an outfit a little more classy.
After having this babies for just a month, I took a trip to New York City (more on the trip in a travel blog post!). Boy, did I get spoiled there! We went to the Christian Louboutin boutique on Madison Avenue and it was so spectacular, it was as if we were visiting a museum! You had to ring a bell to enter the store and a security guard came to let us in. It was quite daunting but I felt confident knowing that I already had a pair of these precious shoes at home! At the boutique, I tried on a gorgeous pair of boots and it was love at first sight! I walked out of the store and down Madison Avenue carrying my second pair of Louboutins, the Fiffi Botta boots! I couldn't wait for fall so that I could wear them!
My third pair of Christian Louboutins arrived in the mail as I was writing this post. Here's the first peek at them! They're the Fifi ankle boots, perfect for fall :)
