Red Soles

Christian Louboutin

So, it’s been around two weeks since I last wrote and I’m so annoyed with myself. Though, not entirely my fault, I was struck down for just over one of those weeks with Bacterial Bronchitis and although I’m still coughing, I’ve managed to get back to my usual routine of nail painting and planning activities!

What’s happening? Well, right now I’m waiting for my 2nd coat of Christian Louboutin nail varnish to dry on my fingers and toes as on Monday 29th I’m taking my best friend to London for the day so I can try on my 30th birthday present – a pair of Christian Louboutins.

See, I’ve loved Christian Louboutin shoes for years. The red bottom is the most deliciously devilish feature on a pair of shoes I’ve ever seen. They’re not only a statement, but they are the ultimate in high end luxury. They’re elegant, graceful and tasteful.

I’ve had my eye on the Pigalle model for years now as I’m a huge fan of pointed toes. I find the point to be quite sexy, powerful but also quite restrained. Round toes make me feel young and girly, yet a point makes me feel womanly and strong.

I have one pair of stilettos and I paid £6 for them from an antique shop. They’re original 1950s stilettos and unfortunately, they have now seen better days. I painted them myself, as they were a sorry looking ‘ivory’ (with dark marks) and the soles were plain black. I couldn’t afford Loubis so I grabbed two tins of enamel paint and painted the shoes black and the soles red.

I was even asked by a man in a nightclub if they were Louboutins and I couldn’t help but say yes! I was so ashamed!

So, I turn 30 in June and my amazingly wonderful boyfriend is treating me to a pair of Christian Louboutins. I can’t begin to explain how lucky I am to have a man who will save for months and months so he can buy me something I really want to mark this milestone in my life.

Here’s a picture of the Louboutins I’ve been ogling:

But, I can’t decide between the kid leather pair or the patent pair. I love patent leather and have 3 black patent 1950s handbags all slightly different from each other. So, the black patent Pigalles would match them all. But, patent leather shows up scratches, so do I want the kid leather pair so they can be polished regularly?

Decisions, decisions.
