There's no place like a Christian Louboutin Trunk Show

Got an email flier today from "Needless Markup" on Christian Louboutin's fall trunk show. They included a link to a preview. Of course, the mailer put front and center Christian Louboutin's latest offer in the "Dorothy Would Love This" category:

Oxblood Glittered Platform Pump at Neiman Marcus

What do you think? It also comes in Marine...

Marine Glittered Platform Pump at Neiman Marcus

I actually don't really like either, but I'm digging the marine more than the red. That's a change for me! I hope this deep dark blue is indicative of a coming trend. I don't own any blue shoes.

Also in the glittered category comes the Slingback in Black and "Anthracite (Grey)". I really dislike it when designers use crazy words to describe "grey" and the department store has to put it in parentheses.

Oh, and take a look at this - I don't like like it. It reminds me of medusa's hair.

The rest looked like garden variety Louboutin to me, which I really don't mind. Sometimes I think I just want a dependably elegant shoe. Of course, I will also probably never own a pair of Christian Louboutins.
