Not So Boring Black

I used to prefer black over any other color and believed there was no such thing as too much black.  That ideology officially ran out of gas in 2009.  I spent the better half of last year, tracking down the most vibrant colors I could find...the more pop, the better.  However, Msr. Louboutin made me realize yesterday that black done right, gives just the same amount of pop as any other color.

Madame Butterfly booties in black kid:


I have to admit, I hated these when I first saw them in the Marchesa F/W 2010 runway show.  I tried them on just for fun and immediately knew I was screwed.  I absolutely adore these booties.  They cut off just below the ankles so theres none of that stumpy leg thing you often get with ankle booties.  These babies are 150mm (the new heel height for CL this season) but surprisingly comfortable.  The thick platform helps as well as the zipper that locks your foot in place.  Another great thing about the MB booties is the fact that you really could wear them all year long.  Even my mom thinks these are awesome ^.^

Rosella flats in pewter/black metallic suede:


The metallic suede is a new material for CL this season...basically suede with tiny metallic squares pressed on top.  These are my first pair of CL flats...I tend to limit myself to the $200 mark when it comes to flats but I had a $100 GC for SCP (thanks again TN for the tip!) and thought I might as well use it on something I normally wouldn't pay full price for.

I actually have one more waiting to make her way onto this blog but she didn't really go with the black color theme of this post so I'll squeeze her in some other time :)  Click here for updated shoe post.

BTW, if you're at all interested in any of the new styles coming out for CL this season, you better hurry up and go splurge yourself silly.  The new shipment arrived at SCP on Wednesday, my SA called me on Thursday to let me know that I needed to come ASAP, and by the time I went with my mom on Saturday, many of the styles I had wanted to try on were already all sold out in my size..including half size up and half size down from my normal CL size.  Talking to the SAs, we are all agreed that this was the busiest and craziest season thus far and its not even summer yet!!

Those booties are HOT! And the flats are great, too! I love the metallic detail- they're still neutral, but interesting at the same time. Congrats on your fabulous shoe purchases! :)

Like the top shoes - but how can one ever walk in them?? Would be sooo afraid to fall and break my feet...

Thank you, Renee!!

Hi Kristina :) The high platform cuts down the height and make the shoes much easier to walk in. You're feet are also secured by the zippers so you dont feel as wobbly.

Where to buy these shoes?

Those booties are amazing ... the heel is INSANE! They seem like they would be pretty versatile with jeans and dresses/skirts. I have to say that I am in awe of your heel-walking skills :). I think my highest pair are the Mamimo, and I agree that they are more stable than lower heels because of the support from the top. I love the flats as well. Do you know if there are any glitter versions?

I like the booties soooo much. Even though they are very high - I think they are quite comfortable once you get used to the height. No very thin straps to dig in.

Michelle - thank you! I'm not sure if CL ever made glitter flats but I remember seeing Jimmy Choo glitter flats not too long ago at Nordstroms :)

susann - totally agree ;)

Thank you, Haute Girl!
