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!!
