My birthday was actually last Wednesday, but I feel like the festivities started two weeks ago while I was in NY! I had planned to shop for my bday shoes while in the big city, but for the first time ever, I didn't shop! ( I know, the horror!) Between work and some serious night life (more on that later), I just ran out of time. The one day I had planned to hit the stores, it was rainy and windy. Not exactly ideal shopping weather. So, I came home with nothing but a few "I heart NY" t-shirts for my nephews. I had the most amazing trip to NYC, so no complaints here, but I DID have to make up for my lack of shopping when I returned to LA!
The morning of my birthday, I had one client and then it was off to the Christian Louboutin boutique to search for the perfect pair of heels.
Once inside, I was mesmerized by all of the gorgeous shoes, each with the ubiquitous red lacquered sole. Ahhhh...I imagine this it what Heaven is like! The selection was overwhelming! Thankfully, I knew exactly what I wanted, and had the sweetest SA a girl could ask for! (We're now Facebook friends!) The second I told him that I was buying a bday present for myself, he offered me a glass of champagne, some Paulette macarons, and literally brought me every black shoe in the store to try! Seriously, Heaven!
I completely took over the entire second floor, with shoe boxes and black peep toes everywhere! After trying several different styles, the perfect pair for me was the Hyper Prive. While I loved the simplicity of the all black Very Prive, the extra platform of the HP made them SO much more comfortable!
(Sorry for the bad photo quality. I was trying not to be too obnoxious in the store with my camera.)
As soon as I got home, I did a proper photo shoot with my new birthday shoes, which also happen to be my very first pair of Louboutins!
I'm in love!
