As promised, here are some updated pictures:
10C red Maxi:
I've been wearing this for about a week now and I love it a little bit more each time.
Blue Acid Python LC:
I can't make up my mind about the color on these. Sometimes I look at them and I see why some people thought they were too close to black but other times I see the blue and then still other times, I see purple.
God, these are so amazing. So, so, SO amazing.
And the latest addition to my CL addiction:
Gray Python Nabuck Decollete:
I had held off on getting the Altadama version for months but last week I got weak and started calling the boutiques. The Altadamas are sold out everywhere but I was able to locate the decollete version from Horatio :) The color is a true blue-gray and the sueded texture is almost like the softness you get from watersnake. I have to admit, when I first got them I thought "Crap, these are just like my Lanvin pythons..." I'm happy to report that while close, these two are still different enough for me to justify the purchase:
The Lanvin is more of a true gray, right?? Right. I'm also not exactly sure on the treatment of the Lanvin python. Is definitely not sueded but it's also got that watersnake softness going on.
On a much less exciting note, I'm sad to report that the Chloe wedges are also going back. After awhile, they weren't as comfy as I originally thought and I feel like I can find cuter wedges if I just practice some patience. For new readers, I promise I'm not the type to buy a lot only to return a lot after a few days. I hardly ever make returns but this season, the guilt factor has been eating me alive. I feel a bit more at ease and I think my editing has all been well justified :) The jury is still out on the rouge Rolandos...on one hand, the Rolando is one of my favorites styles. On the other, I realize it is unnecessary to have two closed-toe pumps in the same exactly color. BUT then again, they're so pretty on :( ACK - I'll give it another week or so before I put my foot down once and for all.
Finally, on a completely random note, I spent I dont even know how many hours last night wiping down every single pair of shoes in my upstairs closet and seized the opportunity to take a picture of my pretty Lanvin shoe boxes:
