What’s this? A new blog series! We’ve dubbed it ‘A Peek in the Backseat’ and, well, it’s exactly that: a look at some of our closet favourites and how they got there. First up? How about a little red-soled goodness from Christian Louboutin, one of my earliest designer shoe acquisitions.
Introducing my beloved “C’est Moi” booties, purchased back in 2008 from saks.com. They may seem a tad under-designed compared to Mr. Louboutin’s more recent offerings, but their simplicity is what I loved most about them. Three geniusly placed buttons on an otherwise plain black bootie made for one very chic fall shoe indeed. It was my very first pair of ankle booties, in fact, and I’ve been addicted to them ever since.
These babies sadly haven’t seen the light of day in a few years, but writing this post has rekindled my love for them. They deserve to be taken out for a spin, wouldn’t you say?
