The Downtown Dreamer: August 2013

Friday, August 16, 2013


I follow and read a ton of blogs! I love knowing that there are so many talented and creative bloggers on the web, and it's these individuals who inspire me everyday. I'm not going to lie, a lot of my free time is spent reading these blogs. However, before I started blogging, I never knew how to keep up with all the blogs that I loved to read. I would go from one blog to another, but forgetting others along the way. I hated missing out on posts and would find it hard to catch up...that was, until I joined bloglovin'. I love that I can now keep up on all my beloved blogs using one website (and app). With that being said, I just joined the lovely world of bloglovin'.

A love story...

I don't think I'm alone when I say I LOVE Christian Louboutin shoes! 

There's something special about spotting the shiny, red-lacquered soles walking down the street. The pops of red get me every time. When I think of Louboutin shoes my mind immediately goes to the Kardashians, I admire the elegance of the shoe and their ability to add sophistication and confidence to any outfit. 

My love affair began years ago when I completed my undergrad. I vowed to reward my hard work with a pair of Louboutins. Every weekend, I'd find myself at Holt Renfrew lusting over the latest designs and mouthwatering red soles. Fast forward four years (of lusting & saving), I fell in love with the Corneille slingbacks and they became mine....and we lived happily ever after.

That is, until I saw the same style at Zara's. Naturally, I wanted to buy them (just because...) because I still loved the asymmetric toe and contemporary classic design. But, I fought the urge. However, for those you may not be able to fight the urge, you can find these beauties at Zara...and on sale too! (note: they're no longer available online. Though, I've seen them at select stores)
