silver spring

I've never been one to copy the latest celeb trends, but when I saw the unbout illusion pumps on a few different gossip blogs, I immediately fell in love. After a lot of thought, I decided to make my very first high-end designer shoe purchase. I'm 25, so I figured it's about time for a classic grown up pair of heels (plus I had a pretty shitty 2011 so I convinced myself I deserve them). For my first time wearing them out on the town, I paired them with a black ASOS peplum top (available here) and silver sequin leggings (available here--if you buy them, I recommend sizing down).

  17. I looked at them with no clue how to wear them because I think I am to scared to wear them with such a short shirt, but you really rock this look, amazing!

  18. Gorgeous! I love this outfit so much, I'm dying over those leggings. I actually held my first pair of Louboutins last week, though I didn't even dare to try them on, as I feared I'd not be able to leave without them!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have one of these peplum tops in leopard print and I love it so much! I've also been eyeing up these leggings and I wasn't sure how they'd look on but they look amazing on you!

  28. I have had my eye on those leggings since they hit the Asos website! Totally gonna buy them now. Thanks for the suggestion of sizing down. Love this entire outfit and those shoes are insane. Girl you are doing it these days! Kiah

  29. You look fantastic! Shirt isn't my style but those leggings are awesome! Are they comfortable or do they feel weird between your thighs? (is that a weird question?)

    I recently found your site and read back quite a bit. Your video on trying clothes no matter what the size label says was great advice. I usually did anyway, but the looks I'd get from people while carrying around clothes in a S/M/L store bothered me. Now they don't! Because I'm pretty short (5'2) I still have trouble pulling off a lot of "plus size" styles. All models, including plus size ones, are tall, so it's very difficult to tell if a bottom or dress would look ok on me. Any advice for short

    1. the leggings are soft/comfy not itchy :) as far as being short, i know this isnt much help but tailors are definitely key. they are life savers and much cheaper than you think--you can usually get things shortened for about $10-20

  47. Gabi,
    as always you look gorgeous, Christian Loubitains, *sigh* so pretty and very classic, but now you will be addicted my dear and can never go back to non-coture footwear! It's like once you put on those red soles you never want to take them off. I know because the guy at bloomingdales had to pry the ones I was "just visiting" off my feet! I'm sorry to hear you had a not so fabulous 2011, but it's a new dawn and life is fabulous. You have such a successful blog, is there any way you could give me some tips? Check me out here:

  52. I usually just look at your blog and dip out creepily, but I had to say something about this post. There are so many wonderful things about this look. Those leggings are the bizzomb, that shirt is just simply cute, &works so well here, and those shoes, which I haven't loved when I've seen them elsewhere, complete the look. The entire ensemble is just très élégante. Girl, . Just, Yo. The bomb.

  62. HOT! Now, can we talk about comfort? I have yet to dive into high-end designer heels bc I get past the idea of my painful $500 kicks. I've been told LBs are the Ferrari of shoes...hot to be seen in but not a smooth ride. From one city girl to another, your thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. the heels on these ones aren't too high so they are much more comfortable than i was expecting, honestly. that said, i have yet to actually spend a huge amount of time walking in them. i'd suggest always trying shoes on in the store first!

      Delete
    2. You look gorgeous!
      I have regular Pigalle 100mm ones and they hurt really bad, plus the heel broke after couple of month and i had to pay some more to replace it.
      My question is, do they feel stable? I feel like they not meant for big girls ( I'm 220 lbs)

      Delete
    3. @elizabeth they feel pretty stable to me (as much as they can for stiletto heels lol). this is my first pair of loubs and ive only really worn them once so it's hard to say...but i imagine they are the same quality/stability as the pigalles

    the tops do they run small? or can i get away with a size bigger cos they don't av my size.....

  79. Wow, this fit is gorgeous! I have a bit of a random question though. I've always wondered whether the red-bottomed shoes are more comfortable than the cheaper off-brands. Sorry this is kinda off-the-wall, but I've just never had the chance to ask anyone before, lol....
