Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend! Today's look is all about my new favorite heels! I've been lusting over a pair of Christian Louboutin's for years now. I went back and forth with so many different styles and colors for weeks. I finally plugged the trigger and purchased these gorgeous white kid leather half d'Orsay pumps. I am over the moon in love with them! When it came down to purchasing them, I wanted to make sure that I would really get my money's worth, so I went with a classic style and in a color that I knew would get me through many outfits this spring and summer. 

Making such a splurge purchase on designer shoes can be quite the nerve racking decision especially while ordering online. I googled just about every question I could think of before making my purchase. 
The main focal point of these gorgeous Louboutin's is their signature red bottoms. Getting them protected is a must (I still have to get mine done). I can't imagine spending so much money and having the bottoms destroyed. Oh the horror! I do have to say, that after wearing them out this past weekend, the bottoms did get a bit scraped up, giving me a minor heart attack! I hope to get them done this week, so I can actually enjoy wearing them out and not worry about every little step that I take. Sizing was also a bit tricky. After reading many reviews, I decided to order a half size larger than I normally wear and they ended up fitting like a dream. Overall, I am very pleased with my first Louboutin purchase, and I can't wait to get more use out of them! 

What so far has been your favorite splurge purchase?

Thank you so much for reading!!

  4. How do you get the bottoms protected? Those sure are timeless shoes and I love the denim joggers, too.

    Hope all is well. Enjoy this week, Erica!

    2. There's a few different options that I've read online, but the most common method of protecting them is taking them to a cobbler (shoe repair) and they can add on a red rubber sole. It will protect the red on the bottom as well as give you better traction while walking!

      Thank you so much! Have a great week!! xoxo Erica

  11. So funny that you said that because when I saw your pic on IG, I wondered how you had to guts to wear them unprotected! I've waited impatiently for all of mine to come back from the cobbler before wearing them, because I too would be mortified knowing they were anything less than perfect! And that's awesome that your size worked out! I have pairs in about 3 different sizes because they're all across the board! Crazy! These are very beautiful!! Carylee | more pieces of me
