This year, thankfully, the IRS gods have been good and given me a lot of money. In my conquest to become my city's Carrie Bradshaw, I decided that I should use the money towards something I've dreamed about: my very first pair of Louboutins. So I traveled 520 miles to the Christian Louboutin boutique only to find that the styles in stock were too trendy to justify spending $800. I walked into a Neiman Marcus an hour later and there was my shoe — a gorgeous, shiny, black patent leather heel. The Bianca (like this but patent). Then I came across these on Net-a-porter. So, what should I go with? Because in one way, I hate the super pointy shoes but they're classy. I love the Bianca but that platform isn't going to live forever. Help, please! By the way, these are the ones I bought and am thinking about returning below.
