  1. for my thousandth post, i wanted to make a collection thread :smile:

    when i first came to tPF, i had one lonely loubie. (black patent iowa 70mm, from ebay) with the help (read: enabling) of you lovely ladies my collection has grown quite a bit. the iowas are long gone, hopefully making some other fashionista happy, but here are what remains, in order of appearance.

    simple 85mm in nude kid (NAP). my size was the last in stock, so i took a chance.

    new simple in blue leopard lurex, a find from the deals & steals thread from shoe-in!

    next up, i pre-ordered the studded VPs from saks, but while waiting, these were posted in the d&s thread from a craigslist posting... ruh roh.

    i was kind of crazy about these, and ordered them in my size, then a backup size because i was worried the sizing wouldn't work. i lucked out and got them before saks upped the price.

    these are extra special to me because i took them with me to DC to get signed by msr. louboutin.

    the actual shoes i had set aside to purchase at the signing. i accidentally ended up spilling the beans to rdgldy's daughter and told her "shoe twins!" which despite her being a sweetheart about it, i still feel a twinge guilty.

  2. i ordered these from barneys sale, figuring it would be a "guilt-free" shopping (since we all know how barneys is) until i got a shipping confirmation. i couldn't decide whether to keep them because i wasn't sure if i could be a good shoe mom or not to an exotic skin (my first!)... but i took them with me on a trip where a friend of mine insisted i had to keep them.

    i couldn't decide if these were tacky, but they were cheap and i've kind of had a long-term love affair with questionable items, so in my closet they came!

    another ( ebay) posting from the d&s thread, maybe my favorite of the bunch because i can wear them with so much.

    after seeing sara999's gwenissimas, i really wanted to find a pair. still no black in store for me, but these grey flannel pair are pretty cool!

    i have wanted these ever since seeing them in jetsetgo!s collection thread. i temporarily "forgot" i already owned a pair of blue leopard shoes, but these are totally different. (yeahrite)

  3. oh these came earlier, too, they were a whim purchase really inexpensive on ebay.

    y'alls remember i bought these in a 36.5 and i was ecstatic, but then a 37.5 showed up and i ended up going with those instead. i feel kind of greedy having this holy grail to myself but i love them.

    and these just came in the mail! they need some TLC but i wanted to take a quick pic anyhow. inspired by rdgldy's collection....

The eugenies are amazing, the l-guitones delicate and pretty, the kiss me wedges are adorable, and finally, do not feel guilty about the glitters!!!!
