Birthday Splurge: Christian Louboutin So Kate Pumps


So if you didn’t know, today is my 26th birthday! For once, I’m actually looking forward to turning another year older. There’s something comforting about growing older and feeling yourself grow into a self-assured, responsible adult…but this isn’t a life post. This is a quick post to share with you all the birthday gift I splurged on for myself.

I’m not one to put hundreds of dollars towards an item if it isn’t an electronic. In fact, aside from this purchase, the only other thing I truly splurged on that was fashion related was the Louis Vuitton Neverfull. I also blogged about that purchase here if you’re interested. This time around, I bought myself the Christian Louboutin So Kate black patent pumps.

I know.

Everyone (and their mama) has this style, but let’s face it: they’re a classic and sexy shape. I’ve always wanted a pair of Louboutins…I mean, what girl hasn’t? Timing truly is everything when it comes to this purchase because I originally wanted the classic round toe pump years ago. My taste has evolved since then, for which I am grateful because the pointed toe is a much better choice.

The heel is the perfect height, and I just love how they look when styled with anything from skinny jeans to an A-line dress. I didn’t intend on purchasing these when I went shopping, but they finally had my size and these are a hot commodity: once they’re out, they’re nearly impossible to find in stock again. I wanted to get the nude pair, but the pink undertones didn’t flatter my skintone. My advice to those interested in this shoe is to try them on while you’re in the store. At the very least, try out the same color in a different style so you can become familiar with which color looks best on you.

The only other high ticket item I have on my fantasy wishlist is a Chanel classic flap bag, but I can’t even fathom spending that much on a bag without having buyer’s remorse…at least not in my twenties.
