Star Light, Star Bright,
First star I see tonight.
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have this shoe that shines so bright.
There is no doubt about it. Christian Louboutin’s ‘Eugenie’ is a bright and shining star of a shoe. At $1875, however, it has a price tag floating somewhere in the stratosphere. It is, honestly, so far out of my current shoe budget as to be in another solar system entirely. I suppose it’s just as well that the black satin with rhinestones (the color combination that I most covet) is no longer available at the Barney’s website. All the better to help reduce potential temptation.
Perhaps, in a year or two I will be able to hunt these lovelies down on the aftermarket. After all, I am a big believer in shoe karma. If it is meant to be, the shoes will find a way back into your life – right?
Of course, if you are less budget-constrained than this shoe-blogger, the taupe version of Louboutin’s ‘Eugenie’ is currently available from net-a-porter.com. So sparkly, we are definitely looking at one of this year’s bridal dream-shoes.
As they say, “All that glitters is not gold“.
