Okay so I bought a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps from New York. As you all know, I already have the Fifi 100 in turquoise metallic seude. So I needed a classic black pair so I bought the Simple 100 in black patent.
My choices were either the Decolletes, Simple 100 or Simple 85. The Decolletes look so beautiful but they didn't have my size. The Simple 85 were super comfy because of the lower heel (8.5cm) but it didn't have that wow factor compared to the Simple 100 (10.0cm). I wear a size 38 in Aldo for reference. I found the decolletes to run half a size too small so I sized up to a 38.5. However, they were pretty uncomfortable because the slope/pitch of the heels were pretty steep. The Simple pumps of both heights were true to size. I wanted them in black patent because I've scratched my Feticha 120 in black calf leather before (I've sold them).
These cost $625USD or $645CAD. Honestly, the price difference isn't that big of a deal from USD to CAD. In Vancouver, Holt Renfrew has the monopoly for premium designer goods and I can never find my size for Christian Louboutin heels nor have any established relationship with any sales association in the shoe department.
Then ohsovonnie decided to sell me her Iowa Zeppa (not produced anymore at the moment) because it was a half size too small for her but it fit me perfectly! I love her to death and I've always wanted Christian Louboutin mary jane pumps but the current one looks ugly to me. She barely worn her heels and they were in great condition. Love her! I've always wanted these mary jane pumps because I've seen For the Love of Retail wear them as well. I've admired in the distance, knowing I would never get my hands on them ever... but it was fate!
So my little Christian Louboutin collection grew to 3 pairs. I may consider selling my Fifi 100 (they are size 39) but feel like a true to size 38.5. I put heel grips because my heels fly out of them. I do not want to part with my Fifi 100 but if I find a better fitting coloured pair, I may sell it off.
Also I bought these beautiful Chloe sunglasses from the Barney's Outlet in Woodbury Common's Outlet. They were only $110 from $330. They were the last pair too. I love the scalloped edges. I think a girl should 3 different styles of sunglasses: a pair of aviators, bugged eye sunglasses and wayfarer-like sunglasses.
Sorry for the dusty sunglasses
These are my best purchases from my NYC trip. I've bought a few things from Forever 21 here and there but it's not really worth mentioning in my opinion. I honestly didn't shop much in NYC. It was #1 tourist attractions, #2 food and then #3 shopping. I only had one day (3 hours of that day) to visit 5 major department stores for a pair of black Christian Louboutin pumps in my size. I only found the Simple 100 at Barney's. Every other place was sold out of size 338 for black pumps. It was so frustrating.
My next few posts will be about:
- an awesome shaving razor
