As one of the greatest television characters ever created (in my eyes at least), Carrie Bradshaw taught viewers to live fully, love always and most importantly, wear fabulous footwear. Miss Bradshaw would no doubt be very proud of this Fashionista, who I caught on her way to a girls’ night out. When I spotted her strutting those python pumps, I was impressed; but then when I caught sight of those iconic red soles, I almost fainted. Christian Louboutin heels are more than just a pair of shoes—they’re wearable art. The Parisian-born designer’s non-conformist ideals and attention towards women’s empowerment manifested into his fascination with shoes. No one knows better than Christian Louboutin himself that, “A woman can carry a bag, but it is the shoe that carries the woman.” His signature “Sammy red-bottoms” were actually inspired by an employee’s nail polish to add a sort of energy that he felt was previously lacking in his shoes; those signature red soles are now instantly recognizable among shoe junkies and Fashionistas all over the world.
This Fashionista is mindful not to distract from her fabulous footwear by pairing a flowy black chiffon top with waxed denim jeans. The oxblood color of her pants is not only very trendy right now, but a surprising hue that matches just about anything. Her accessories are minimal with a House of Harlow pentagon necklace and simple studded earrings. Wearing all solids against the grey snakeskin pumps is the right move. This ensemble is perfect for spending a night in the city with those girlfriends who will not only complement your carefully crafted outfit, but will also appreciate just how special those shoes really are. Though they are an item outside of the average college girl’s budget, Louboutin heels exude a sense of timelessness, sophistication, femininity and daring that is near impossible to find in any other footwear.
