From Zero To Sixty

I grew up a lot during these past three years. So did my closet. As you all know, I bought my first three pairs of Christian Louboutin shoes in June 2007. Today, I proudly present to you, my 60th pair of Christian Louboutin heels: Greissimo in black and white damask fabric.




I've had my eyes on these every since they came out but I decided to file them under my "wait until the sales" category. Last week, I realized everyone else in the entire world was also waiting for the Greissimo to go on sale. With sizes already running low, I decided it would be too risky to wait any longer :) So here she is. Probably should've just gotten her when she first came out but at least now I dont have to worry come summer sales. BTW, #61 should be here next week so stay tuned! Click here for updated shoe collection.


PS: Dont watch The Blind Side unless you plan on staying home for the next 24 hours. The movie is a little over two hours long. I think I cried for an hour and fifty minutes - straight. The other ten minutes, I was busy lusting after Tim McGraw. Why didn't anyone tell me earlier that he was freakin HOT?!?!? I usually like guys with a bit of facial hair but hes one of the few who actually look better with no facial hair. Finally, I love Sandy but Gabourey Sidibe was robbed!!!

damn... i wish i can buy atleast one CL!!! but can u give me tips as to how to walk on strapless pumps? i've tried heel grips and it was ok. all my shoes are with straps so i finally bought some strapless ones bt it annoys me when the back keeps sliding off my feet!! =(

Hi Angel! I would probably size a half size down bc a good fit should mean no heel slippage. And if you still need padding, I prefer ball of foot pads over heel grips. Good luck!!

Angel said...

Ah! Balls of foot padding! I shall try that. Maybe even together wit heel grips. I'm normally a 6 so I've been tryna buy 5's if it's strapless. Thanks!!!

These shoes are so hot!! I'm now searching for my second pair of CL... still no idea which one to get, and most popular ones are hard to find... your shoe collection post is my CL refrerance library :P

MadsaboutU said...

OMG, you have 60 pairs of CL's alone? I don't even have that many pairs of shoes total! Crazy shoe addict...lol.

I love the Blind side too! And just like you, cried my eyes out :p

I completely agree that fit is key, but if you have a size foot that just doesn't seem to fit standard sizes (which is VERY common), heel grips and pads are a great solution. I've also posted on my blog about different methods to make heels more wearable. Check it out:

Love the Greissimos congrats!
Watched the Blind Side last night and LOVED it! But yes I think I cried the entire time. It was beautiful story.

BCBG said...

I DIE! these are marvelous!!!!
I though I was the only one crying like a baby watching the blind side!lol but I don't think Gabourney was robbed, I didnt like Precious at ALL, too much for me: rape/obesity/aids/teenage birth....STOP! one at a time please! But Mo'nique, god she's AMAZING in that movie! I just can't feel sorry for Precious because I can't relate to her.

Angel - If you normally take a 6, try 5.5 first and then 5. Again, you can use ball of foot pads, heel grips, the two together, and you can even double up on the ball of foot pads.

Thavasa - Hahaha, good to hear my collection is good for something other than destroying my bank account :P

Junee - Yea, I went a little crazy with the shoes these past three years. Lately though, its the makeup thats been killing me!!

I'll have to check out your post sometime, Renee!

Thank you,So Cal! My eyes were swollen for the entire day yesterday :(

Thanks,BCBG!! I thought Precious was too depressing but honestly, compared to the acting that Sandra did in The Blind Side, Gabourey I thought was way more deserving of the Oscar.

Those are great, I love printed fabric shoes!! They are one of my obsessions, unfortunately also along with socks (I had to buy some more from Sock Theory). I saw Blind Side on the plane and really had to cling onto the tears. I thought that it was just me...so I'm glad to hear that others feel the same!

Purse Addict said...

^^hahaha, yea apparently crying during the entire movie is the norm :P

lilflobowl said...

60 pairs! WOW!

darnit, the more I see this pair the more I see it's appeal...

Purse Addict said...

^^you should get them!!!!

lilmissb said...

You would get the B&W Greissimos... I've been lusting after them for a while. Well just satin greiss in general...Ack!

Regarding the movie I think I'll skip it at the movies and get it on DVD if it's that much crying!

Purse Addict said...
