I have posted some of my CL's in my shoe collection thread in the Glass Slipper, but half way through I figured my CL babies need a dedicated thread I starting buying CLs in the summer of 2010 and have not been able to stop. I now have a modest collection I adore and would like to share with you all. Without further adieu, I introduce my first pair - Christian Louboutin Elisa in Camel Patent They are the perfect first CL for me. I practiced and built confidence walking in heels in these and more importantly I found CL are extremely well made and comfortable for my feet. I have worn them a lot, a lot. They suffered through a major surgery as you can see - I strassed the heels. The thin heel got stuck in on the escalator and the patent leather peeled off. I was heart broken and "special" fixed them. They are still very versatile since the sparkles are barely there, and I only wear them in my office nowadays.
