Christian Louboutin

UPDATE: This post has been updated on September 20, 2014. Scroll down to see the new add.

Christian Louboutin‘s “Bibi” pump is one of my favorite Loubies from the classic shoe styles department. I looooove the high arch and also that it has this straight column-like chunky heel; I just dig that on shoes, not sure why, but I love this (plus, it makes a high heel that much more stable/comfortable because the weight doesn’t pressure on a pinpoint-sized stiletto heel). That makes yet another addition to my never ending list of shoe obsessions.

Rough Justice “Kara” Platform Pumps

Rough Justice is a pretty new footwear brand and for their first collection they have decided to take some inspiration from the master of the red soled heels because these “Kara” platforms are obvious “Bibi” wannabes. Tood bad they’ve messed up the arch, otherwise it would’ve been a super great Louboutin alternative. The pumps are available in black, turquoise, fuchsia, rust & stone suede.

Oh my, it’s been a while, huh? So sorry we’ve been MIA for the last couple of weeks, but offline life has kept us very busy. However, we’re almost fully back now and should return to our regular posting schedule next week at the latest. In the meantime, have some fun with these stunners from Monsieur Christian Louboutin. I know I’ve said it like a hundred times before already, but I think I have found THE shoe. As soon as I laid my eyes on Louboutin’s “So Kate” stiletto heels I was captivated, it has the most perfect arch ever, doesn’t it? And while I would probably opt for the classic black patent, this snakeskin stripe print version is so much more fun, don’t you agree? Only problem? The price tag, obviously. $1.095 – that would pay quite a few bills for this girl here!

Lust for Life “Krush” Striped Stiletto Pumps

While we couldn’t find an exact match for the orange version, we managed to dig out these fabulous stiletto pumps by Lust for Life which you might remember have also come up with a stunning pair of Tom Ford OTK boot dupes. As much as I love the real Loubis, the cobalt blue color (one of my absolute faves!) and the much nicer price tag of $129.99 makes this an easy choice for me. What about you? Real or steal, which one do you prefer?

I’ve just taken a look at the last few dozen blog posts and realized it’s been months too long since we last had a good ol’ Christian Louboutin Real vs. Steal here on this blog. So here you go: I’m quite in love with this beauty of a cutout high heel ankle bootie! So chic and classic yet the cutouts add a bit of an edge! I much prefer Monsieur Louboutin doing “classic with a twist” than those flashy uber-modern designs that he’s been doing the last couple seasons. Too bad I can’t afford to splurge on these high heeled beauties. Le sigh!

Anne Michelle Rapture-25 Cutout Ankle Booties

Well, hello there Rapture-25 by Anne Michelle! Nice to meet you. Has anyone ever told you you look a lot like Christian Louboutin’s “Cachottiere”? No? But it’s true. OK, you’re not French and might not be quite as delicate as your luxurious twin sister, but your price tag of $29.90 is way easier to handle than the designer’s steep price of $995 (ouch!). Also available in nude beige.

Christian Louboutin makes some of the finest shoes in the world. Louboutins are a celebrity’s staple buys and no red carpet would be complete without at least one pair of the red-soled high heels. Louboutin’s “Pigalle” pump is timeless with its classic and sleek design. It’s probably Louboutin’s bestselling and most famous shoe ever. Not to mention expensive.

The Highest Heel “Hottie” Pumps

How great is this find? I recently stumbled upon these Louboutin knockoffs and was astounded by how similar to the originals they are. Just look at the extreme high heel or the pointed toe, it looks just like the real deal. And the best thing: they are on sale right now. But you better hurry and order fast as I’m sure they will sell out quickly.

Over the years I have fallen in love with so many Louboutins that I always thought: “Well, now he has outdone himself! I couldn’t love a shoe more!” – But then this shoe came along. The “Impera” – a truly imperial lasercut lace-up stiletto pump. So how divine could a shoe be? And even though it’s usually very hard for me to love a white heel, this one I absolutely ADORE! In both white and black leather. Just look how gorgeous these shoes look on the celebs! I’m especially in love with how Alessandra Ambrosio has worn her Loubies. Too bad they are a) sold out and b) totally out of my budget.

These heels by Jessica Buurman don’t quite live up to the quality of the Louboutins above, but for 1/10 of the price they do come pretty close, don’t you agree? They’re currently on pre-order and I am now contemplating which color to get them in. Any advice from our fabulous readers?
