One of my (failed) resolutions last year was to purchase a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes.
Instead, I got distracted by other things such as vacations and my beloved Lanvin flats and while I'm happy about that, the Louboutin itch needs to be scratched (and that expression needs to never be used again).
I used to love Louboutins more in the past, I feel like their constant overexposure - similar to Monogram Canvas by Louis Vuitton - made me want them less, but one pair does a girl's shoe closet good so I figured I would share with you the classic pair of Christian Louboutins I'd buy at the moment if someone made a magical $700 deposit into my bank account.
Christian Louboutin Pigalle 120mm
The classic Pigalle pumps are just SO sexy. Patent black seems to be the most sleek and classic, but the shape is just perfect and the heel is to die for.
Only issue is the fact that they have no platform (they've since come out with a platformed version called Pigalle Plato for a slightly higher price) so they could be some serious pain... but they come in such beautiful variations, it's impossible not to crave a pair for my wardrobe.
My favourite (and long gone) pair is this crazy spiked pair. There's a slightly less sharp studded version in black available as well, also I spotted a denim pair before too.
What are your thoughts on Christian Louboutin shoes? Any positive/negative experiences?
What are your favourite styles?
Only pet peeve I have is the fact that the sizing is really inconsistent across the brand. I'd expect more from such a well-established luxury shoe retailer.
