Xmas’15 Reveal II: Dining Out in New Loubies!

Christian Louboutin FW15 Dorissima 100mm Heels in Patent Nude

 

I purchased these heels just before my birthday which is close to the holiday season and was able to benefit from the private pre-sale just before the major end of year sales. I was eyeing this new style called “Dorissima” since the beginning of the season and loved how lady-like it looks. It’s very similar to another style called “Fifi” but I’m not quite fond of its super thin heel. I prefer a slightly thicker but still slender heel, which feels more robust when I walk. Dorissima also has a lower cut vamp for more toe cleavage. My toes are pretty short, but if you have long toes, it may not be the most suitable for you as they might bunch up… The heel height is also very comfy for me at 100mm. Overall, it’s a great pair for any occasional so I’m sure I’ll get a lot of use from them!

I don’t have any modelling pix yet, but I did wear them out to a nice Japanese fusion restaurant (see second pic below). I sat and dined much of the time, but from the few minutes standing up and walking, the shoes were super comfy. No complaints and patent leather always wears hard with all the beatings that I put my poor shoes through! lol Other than starring at my own heels, the dinner was great as well and one of the most memorable times I’ve had in recent years. The service was fab and presentation of the dishes was awesome. I’m very fortunate to have tasted many fancy and exotic foods in my life, some I may not have been able to appreciate their delicacy, but there were few moments that were very special that I actually remembered. And this time, it was for me a moment that I took to heart because it wasn’t just about ordering random novelties on an expensive menu. I was so happy to simply share this day with someone who’s become so dear to me that I actually didn’t care what was on the table. It could have been a Harvey’s hot dog (which I love btw), and I would not have smiled any less!

Thanks for letting me share my holiday joys and happy shopping everyone 🙂

Xmas’15 Reveal I: Valentino Noir!

FW15 Valentino Rockstud Noir Collection – 100mm Heels in Black Leather and Ruthenium Studs

Rockstuds100_Noir.TheSept

I love Rockstuds and every girl who loves heels should own a pair. The usual classics are of course patent black and nude (Poudre), but if you want to add some pizzaz to your collection either the Noir and Rouge are excellent choices that are sure to grab the attention of passersby. The Rouge would be for times when you wish to be more bold and feminine, and I have yet to find my perfect pair (I’m picky cuz I want the patent red version!). However, I could not pass up the opportunity to buy these gorgeous, matte, black on black leather Rockstuds from the Noir collection when I found them on sale at The September for 30% off retail price! This is a relatively new online shoe shopping site dedicated to Canadians and from my experiences with them, they’ve been absolutely wonderful in their customer service. The Rockstud Noir heels almost never go on sale, so I was super happy to have found them in my size. They definitely have a different vibe than the other Rockstuds with platinum studs which seem more glam to me. The Noir collection is edgy, dark, and demure… a different kind of elegance… without further ado, here’s my first Christmas reveal!

My baby wants to model in the pix too! He actually just recovered from a major hospitalization where he was found to be in DKA. So I apologize for not having the time to update my blog. It’s been very busy with work and taking care of him, his meds, going to the vet…etc. He lost so much weight from 16lbs to 11lbs, which is more than 30% of his body weight. In the end, I’m just so glad and thankful that he doesn’t have cancer and his diabetes is still manageable. Our New Year’s resolution will definitely be getting healthier, playing and exercising more! Thanks for letting me share my little Love’s story 🙂
