Happy Birthday to Me!!!

Alright, so it’s not exactly my B-day yet, but it will be soon! Given that CL shoes these days sell like hot cakes, I had to buy these babies now. I’ve already been stalking them daily for the last two months, so I’d better get them now at a good price instead of regretting later on. Without further ado, please let us welcome,

Christian Louboutin Bambou 140 in Leopard-Print Grand Watersnake

 

 

I ordered them from Pam Jenkins UK and Royal Mail took 3 weeks for delivery!!! Now shipping was much cheaper at about 30$ and lower customs duties compensated for the long time, but I’m used to the less than 5 days delivery from CL boutiques, NM, and many other European boutiques.

However, the wait was well worth it! The shoes are STUNNING IRL! What a beautiful combo of leopard-print together with watersnake! Pam Jenkins should, by the way, really improve their photography skills… Their pictures online do NOT do these babies justice.

 

 

As for the fit, I’d say TTS -to- half size small. I got them half size up from my US TTS and they fit me perfectly even though you see a small gap at the back. I honestly don’t think I can go any smaller, otherwise I hate the feeling of tight shoes. However, if you prefer to have your shoes worn snug, take TTS.

 

 

Compared to Bambou heels in other materials (suede, patent, and glitter), these watersnake ones are definitely more loose length-wise and forgiving in the toe box. So if you want to purchase them in other materials, definitely get half size up 

Now for some modeling pix!!! For  reference:
– Sweater by DKNY
– Tank top by H&M
– Skirt by BCBG
– Necklace by Alexis Bittar
– Ring bought from a local boutique in Vancouver. Sterling silver with amber resin and topaz stones.

 

And as seen on celebrities:

 

Now there’s just one thing that ponders me… Unless my eyes are deceiving me, aren’t these spare heel taps a tad small??? LOL
Now I don’t know of any CL shoes with a heel in a half moon shape, so I doubt that it was a mix-up with another pair of shoes from Pam Jenkins, but I will contact them to double check. I suspect that it’s more of a major CL FAIL from the company’s end!  Good lord I don’t ever use CL’s spare heel taps, since they usually suck anyhow. I will definitely show my cobbler these FAIL heel taps lol!

 

And a last look at the gorgeous heels of the Bambou 140 Leopard Watersnake, as she exits from her grand debut…
