LOUBS are fabulous looking shoes... However, they cost a bundle! No... actually, they cost two arms and both legs. So, needless to say, I only allow myself to purchase no more than two (2) pair of LOUBS a year. Right now I'm looking for my final pair of the year to wear for New Year's Eve. I'm thinking about something with some shine. Some blingness going on. Something like these glittery babies!
These are fabulous shoes. However, given the price tag, I need to think about purchasing a style that is somewhat timeless and will afford me the ability to wear them again. And not for New Year's Eve 2010. So, I was thinking maybe of purchasing these babies early and wear for the 3 or 4 holiday parties we've been invited to. Then the wedding came to mind. Although I'll purchase more LOUBS throughout 2010 and 2011, those will likely be something for the warmer months (like a sandel or something) and some winter boots. So, to get something fancy for New Year's Eve, I was thinking of maybe getting something I'd likely wear to the wedding. I know I wanted to wear a splash of color on my feet. I'm really going for a bright pink. Similar to the color of my pink sapphire engagement ring. And I came upon these babies.
I know these are booties, but I love the three buttons on the side and somehow I get that Elizabeth Bennett feeling from these. They are somewhat Victorian and so very romantic. I also considered just getting the pink glitter LOUBS above and wearing those. Then I came upon some more pump styled LOUBS.
All of the above pink LOUBS are fabulous and I wish I could afford to purchase every single pair. I can't so, I need to narrow it down to something I can wear more than once. Then I came across these babies.
What expensive item is a must for your wedding? Are you going to venture out and purchase a high end designer item specifically for your wedding?
