However, things changed for me a few years back when I saw these gorgeous Louis Vuitton pumps:
Well, I won't say I became a shoe girl, but I became a Louis Vuitton Balmoral pump in red and black girl. Of course, there is no way I could afford these as they cost something around $650. But a girl can dream. At the time, the shoes were completely sold out, and even celebrities couldn't get them, but I found a few knock-offs on eBay that I bid on. I was willing to pay up to $70, but I kept getting outbid, and no one had the "Buy It Now" option back then. So, sadly, I let the dream die. It obviously wasn't meant to be.
Then, this week, planning my outfit for a formal Christmas party, I remembered my love for these shoes. They are a couple of seasons old now, but I figured somebody still had to be selling them. I found some knock-offs still available, but they really didn't look like the original:
Notice the red heel instead of a black one. And these cost $60! The rest of it looks good, but I felt like I could find a better copy of my beloved Balmorals. Then, I happened across across yet another
These are nearly perfect! I don't think the velvet piping looks as good, but the black heel was key for me, and these are only $18! Seriously! So I totally bought them. I'm hoping the red will match the red in my dress, so I can wear them to the party, but even if it doesn't,
I LOVE THESE SHOES!
