Christian Louboutin Christeriva
Anke Wrap d’Orsay Peep Toe
“Hello, Lover!” Is one of my favorite and most remembered lines from SEX AND THE CITY. Carrie Bradshaw gushes this as she sees yet another astonishing pair of shoes displayed in a store window. Needless to say, it was not long before she entered said store, and purchased the pink feather Manolo Blahnik sandals.
This is JUST how I felt as I held these nude CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN CHRISTERIVA pumps in my hands for the first time. Hello, Lover! ❤️
The CHRISTERIVA fits well with the ankle tie trend that we are now seeing everywhere. As far as practicality goes, these are not that. However, they ARE by all standards my definition of FootCandy. I like to think of the design as the sexy BALLERINA. The wrap across the toes as well as the ankle ties are all made of a cross-grain ribbon material, with soft bow detailing. The heel is 100mm or 4″ in height. These are definitely more of a stiletto, and gradually become skinnier as you get closer to the tap. Despite the thin heel and the fact that you are solely wrapped in ribbon, these feel very secure on the feet.
How I (Vee) Rock It
These d’Orsay PEEP TOES are fairly versatile for styling, but I still had to take a few stabs at pairing them with different jeans. The NUDE shade is beautiful, but also presents a small (yet exciting) challenge to not overpower the color. I opted to wear them with an all black denim and T-shirt outfit, for my first wear. They dressed up my super basic outfit, but not to the point of trying too hard. I also dusted off some of my trousers to see what they would do for them, and really enjoyed how much fun they brought to a business casual look. I was eager to see how these looked with dresses, so I threw on a few with them, and it was a hit pretty much every time. The key to dressing a pair of shoes with this much design is to not have your outfit compete with them. I would opt for solids, either light or dark, and not too many combined patterns. LET THE SHOES SHINE as the main accessory when creating your look, and get ready to turn heads.
