Very few things stop me in my tracks (Pause, yes. Dead stop, no) but when I saw Louboutin’s new Clou Noeud last Sunday I not only stopped, I got whip lash from doing a double take in mid stride! I stood there for a full minute without breathing; I mean… BOWS. STUDS. 6″ HEELS. What, did he custom make this shoe for me? It has all of my favorite shoe elements wrapped up in a big bow (literally)! My mind became clouded and I completely forgot the soap dispenser I went to Neiman Marcus to pick up (which it turns out, they do not carry with the exception of a
ridiculously expensive one from Jay Strongwater). I circled the shoes for a few minutes, relishing in the excitement of the discovery and just when I was about to try them on, my cellphone rang and snapped me out of my trance. Oh right, I was there for a soap dispenser… It took every ounce of discipline to walk away but I did. A week later, I’m still longing for them but I can’t find my size in the Nude patent version. AAAghhhhhh, I know better than to walk away from a fab find but all this packing/moving/unpacking, buying furniture, shop-a-holic guilt and other nonsense clouded my better judgment. I’m just hoping my SA at Bergdorfs can hustle up a pair for me.
