My first purchase from Gilt Groupe! Safely cushioned for the cross-country journey...
And the big reveal! Black Louboutin Decoltissimos for less than 50% of the retail price.
Couldn't resist a pic of the signature soles.
Sigh... I love them. So does the BF-- I did a little victory prance around the apartment which was quite well-received.
Compared with Stuart Weitzman pumps, Louboutins feel slightly
narrower and run true to size. While the rule of thumb I've heard is
to go half a size up in Louboutins as they run small, I didn't find
that to be the case for me. I knew the sale was coming up, so I sized
myself at a local department store on my lunch hour... and was very
glad I had that reassurance before purchasing.
While they're a splurge, I consider them an investment in my career
wardrobe, and they'll continue to serve me well for at least the next
few years. Louboutins have a fantastic reputation for quality, and I
plan on keeping these classically beautiful pumps around for as long as
I can! I've already looked up my local shoemaker who can resole the
toes using matching red rubber.
The female equivalent of Hermés ties, Louboutin pumps are elegant,
stylish, feminine and powerful. Honestly, aren't those pointy toes the
equivalent of a (perfectly arched) raised eyebrow that says, "Don't
mess with me"?
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to own that interview.
(Note: Do not attempt substitution with Louboutin sandals during workdays, unless you want to be mistaken for one of these poor girls.)
What's your favorite work-related splurge?
