It's #shoesdaytuesday! Why we reserve only one day a week to celebrate shoes is beyond me, but this does give me a great excuse to talk about them! If you're any kind of shoe connoisseur/lover/obsessor you definitely have heard of my French lover Christian Louboutin. And if you haven’t (I’ll refrain from judging) his tale goes a little something like this: Once a upon a time in a far away place called France, a man was born that would create footwear which would make all the women in the kingdom swoon. Indeed, Monsieur Louboutin would conquer the hearts of the rich and famous with his red-soled stilettos. While some celebs boast impressive collections of his shoes, for us mere commoners they are considered more of a luxury/investment piece. The price point combined with all the various style available can make your first red bottom purchase a little overwhelming. Once again, I got you with my Louboutin guide to all the different models. The ultimate Louboutin style guide that is. Once again, YOU ARE WELCOME!
The Shoe: Named after the famous Parisian neighborhood known for its clubs and the Moulin Rouge, The Pigalle shoe might arguably be the most iconic of his styles. It comes in 4 different heights: The 85mm, 100mm, 120mm, and it if you are REALLY short the 140mm. Its classic shape has made this a staple heel for many.
For who? This shoe was intended to be a working girl's savior. It can easily transition from day to night so that you can jump right from your cubicle to the bar! Monsieur Louboutin describes this as a rendez-vous shoe.
The Shoe: The Altadama is the perfect introduction to the platform. Not sky high but will definitely give you some height. With an open toe and a sturdy heel this shoe has a "je ne sais quoi" quality about it.
