The thing about a good pair of shoes is, they can really change your entire day.


Whilst pounding the pavement in New York over the last few days, I have (finally) clapped eyes on the new Louboutin collection (The one we featured a little over a month ago) in the flesh. And to actually see them and to be able to hold a pair creates an even more intense shoe lust than simply viewing them on your computer screen or on a laptop, because you actually get to appreciate the amazing craftsmanship that goes into a heel as expensive and prestigious as a Louboutin. From tiny, intricate stitches to the softest, most supple leathers and luxurious, delicate lace. Beautiful. Even though they’re way over my personal budget (selling my soul wouldn’t even give me enough cash), but just to have the opportunity to touch and hold a pair of shoes that are so fabulous and so stunningly well made in my hands makes my day a little bit better.


While I perused Manhattan’s designer boutiques, something else caught my eye that’s part of a collection that just looking at makes me happy; Yves St. Laurent pumps in super soft suede. The boutique I happened to be in had them in a stunning sunshine orange (it was this bright flash of colour that caught me) and a gorgeous deep blue that had me aching to step into those blue suede shoes.


The pumps turned out to be the YSL Palais; not from the current season, but an absolutely classic shoe. You can still get hold of them for around £500, and they are sure to add a touch of classic Yves St Laurent glamour to your wardrobe. They come in enough colours to make rainbow brite happy!
