Paulina Pumps by Christian Louboutin

Christian Louboutin 100mm Paulina shoes $604 at Matches

So, like many women, I love Christian Louboutins. Unfortunately, having a closet full of them is a little out of my price range, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate them--and add a few to my closet. I love these Paulina pumps that are exclusive to They actually remind me a bit of a Manolo Blahnik pumps in their style and structure. I like the incorporation of the pink with the more classic nude and black. I am all about incorporating color with neutrals and these are a great fashionable pair of shoes that can go with a suit, dress, or jeans. Perfect for work and casual. One part of the shoes that I'm not sure I'm a fan of is that the pink appears to be transparent and perhaps made of plastic. While I have the utmost confidence in Christian Louboutin, this could come a cross a bit cheap looking--and who wants to spend over $600 on shoes and have them look cheap? I think the only way to truely evaluate them and see how the pink looks is to see them in person. Would you buy these Paulina pumps?

Great Spring Pumps

As winter slowly disappears, the spring fashions are popping up in stores and online. Soon we will get to trade in heavy sweaters for sundresses and incorporatee brighter colors to our color palette. These snake embossed leather pumps from Cole Haan in mint green are a perfect pop of color for spring. I think they are a perfect addition to a classic black dress. They are on trend and a unique color while remaining work appropriate. It is definitely a great way to add flare to an otherwise boring work ensemble. What do you think? Do you like these Cole Haan pumps?

Dream Birkin Bag

I think every "fashionista's" dream is to own a Birkin bag.  It is the holy grail of fashion.  Unfortunately, Birkin bags are expensive and hard to get.  If I were to ask for a dream Birkin, it would be this Rose Scheherazade Porosus Crocodile 35cm Birkin Bag with Palladium Hardware that is available at Portero right now for the "low, low" price of $93,999.  So unless I win Megamillions or Powerball, I don't think I'll be buying this bag anytime soon.  But it's fun for a girl to dream right?
