Hello, lovely ladies. I just came back from Dubai couple of days ago, I went for a long awaited vacation and of course major shopping spree. And there was just one pair of Louboutins I wanted to buy - black patent new simples. I have them in nude and thats my ever-favourite pair of shoes. So I went to Dubai mall boutique, and SA brought me my shoes and i simply freaking died of dissapointment. The shoes looked like they were stored under pressure, they lost their shape and one of them looked a little bent. The quality of the shoes overall was so bad i wanted to cry. I don't know what happened to the brand but it's terrible. I didn't want to buy any other shoes in the boutique either. On some of them I saw the glue marks, even the strassed ones had flaws. I really liked fairytale python fifis on the picture, fairy tale python is incredible in other models, but IRL the coloring was different from the picture, the red was barely there, and actually it was more light pink. So that was another pair i could buy, but they were off as well. Maybe it's just me and i have just fallen out of love with Louboutins. It's so sad either way.
