Let's Talk About Shoes Baby

First of all let's talk about a new an upcoming exhibit that I am totally excited to see. Christian Louboutin's first solo exhibition this spring, courtesy of FIT. "Sole Desire: The Shoes of Christian Louboutin," will be on view at The Museum at FIT from March 13 through April 19. The exhibition will showcase examples of Louboutin's work from both the collection of The Museum at FIT and his own. Louboutin's passion for footwear started before he was even a teenager; by the age of 11, he was already sketching shoes. In 1988, after freelancing for design houses like Maud Frizon, Chanel, and Yves Saint Laurent, Louboutin joined Roger Vivier. In 1989, he took a leave from fashion to work as a landscape designer (haha bet you didn't know that), and returned to the industry in 1992 with his first collection, which integrated Asian influences with garden inspirations. I can't wait, there's something to do over spring break!

Now onto more affordable shoes, my two fav brands. First of all apparently Dolce Vita has a boutique on the Lower East Side that I was not aware of at 149 Ludlow St. ( btwn. Stanton & Rivington) When did this happen!?! I must go shop... Also another fav shoe brand Seychelles has a serious coupon code discount going on right now! 30% of anything in their newest collection. SEYDC, love it!!! All so tempting...
