Following all the family gatherings and social craziness over Christmas, I quite enjoy the reflective and peaceful month of January. Health and bank balance aside, it brings a reflective time in which to fondly remember the festive period and, if you're lucky, to finally enjoy some of the presents you received. A quiet weekend welcomes a new book or dvd; your spring-clean is fuelled by the arrival of new pieces for your wardrobe. Exchanging gifts is not only what Christmas is about (albeit an enjoyable part!), but I love nothing more than finding something so-suited to the receiver. Well, this year, I received the perfect present. From the images around this post, you'll know that I'm talking about the world's most famous red-soled heels, by Christian Louboutin. What a lucky girl!
A present from my extremely generous sister (& best gal-pal), they are called 'Delico 100 kid' and I simply adore them. Classy, delicate and feminine, they have a dainty, high-but-not-too-high heel, and of course, the timelessly seductive red sole.
Part pump, part sandal, part sling-back, they are beautifully unique. And, with peep-toes and bows, they couldn't get any better in my style-book.
Having long dreamed of Louboutin's to call my own, they will fit my increasingly Parisian wardrobe exquisitely. This smart red felt bag will look after them when they're not on-show (if you're wondering, the even smaller one contains two spare heel tips):
So, on reflection, I believe my relaxation and rejuvenation period is over. I'm ready to hit the town with my new shoes! Who's joining me? Visit the Christian Louboutin website for a simply dazzling shoe and handbag shopping experience...
