My first pair of Christian Louboutin's

woot woot. ok so sure this wasn't on my 2009 xmas Lust List, but I thought it was. I didn't need it, but thanks to conspicuous consumption, the media, fashion, musical lyrics, "look at my red bottoms! shove it in your face I'm a fashionista and own real Louboutins!!," I really wanted one!!!

Hey, I'm just keeping it real, we can be honest with each other, right? It's a fashion statement, and Sandra Bullock rocked it in The Proposal.

So.... anyways was considering buying a cool one... you know so everyone would assume of course I had a million pairs at home, but I decided to start with a classic and work my way up. It was a lovely gift and I was super excited to get it, I couldn't believe that finally my label whore dreams were coming true *sniff* *teardrops*

You know you are a shopaholic when after you own it, you don't really care to open the box or wear it for a while.

So here are the pictures.
The Blogger in me refused to open it for almost a month until I found my camera charger --- yes very sad! lol

some people have shoe dust bags, why don't I have one??

I'm a size 10.5 which should be a 40, but I fit into the 42! so please make sure you try em before buying them. They had some Mint green ones on sale at Neiman Marcus for $599, luckily it was my size so I tried this style "Very Prive 120," it fit & I ordered the black ones for normal price (bout 5 inches).

random ish:
-omg some shoes were supposed to be "toe cleavage!!" um what *_* I opted out on those, sometimes a girl has to say no to certain fashion trends.

-This is what it looks like after 2 nights of wearing them doing normal stuff like going on date, cousin's birthday, lounge.
smh You'd think I walked a mile, or danced a storm

People asked me about the price but since it was a gift I couldn't remember - found the answer yesterday :)

-they don't go above a 42, but if you are Paris Hilton or similar you can get them custom made.

-on a comfort level: they're okay, not as comfortable as flats, not unwalkable like some heels.

Found these great links on how smarter people like you can protect your  red bottoms & Christian Louboutin shoes if you care, or just say screw it and fix it when it gets really bad.

Just got back from MD got a lot of catching up to do :( 

PS: if any of u go to the Manchester United game in Philly & see some fanatic black chick with a Vuvuzela say hi to my sister ^_^  Amanda, lol.
