Arielle from Something Navy, one of my favorite bloggers, has mastered the art of the shoelfie. That’s a shoe selfie for those of you that don’t waste all day on the internet. When she uploaded the above Louboutins, I was lovestruck. While the styling and merchandising is on point, I was most struck by those glorious red soled booties.
Like Arielle, I definitely have champagne taste, but unlike Arielle, I have more of a beer budget. Even if I could afford these heels, however, I would be out of luck as they are no longer available. Always up for a challenge, I found a similar look for less for only $99 from Gilt. They aren’t exact dupes for the Louboutins, but the color, shape and detailing are very similar. They are also reminiscent of the Vince Addie booties, which are similarly adorable and expensive.
My shoelfie game still needs work, but I’m happy to keep practicing when that means more new pairs of beauties are in my future.
