Splurge or Steal: Christian Louboutin


When it comes to Christian Louboutin shoes, everyone always thinks about the red sole. But honestly, after one wear, that pretty red sole starts looking pretty darn messy. Now, I’m all about luxury and high-end items (I didn’t grow up hearing my dad say I’ve “got champagne tastes on a beer budget” all my life for nothing!). But there is expensive, and then there is stupid expensive. Christian Louboutin is one of them. Want to buy that pair of shoes right there? That’ll set you back a couple thou. As in thousands. Of US dollars.

Or you could just buy these for under $170 bucks and call it a day.

What’s In My Bag + Giveaway

It’s time for an updated what’s-in-my-bag video (I explain what this means in the video, if you are unfamiliar, but in a nutshell: it’s a popular type of video on YouTube, all nosy and such). Again, I want to thank you all for your sweet support and for being a part of this blog. It’s been so great meeting so many of you over the past few years. I hope to meet many more of you in the coming ones!

As a thank you, I’d like to give one of you wonderful people a Rebecca Minkoff MAC bag. It’s in a gorgeous supple brown leather with brass hardware, and it’s the identical bag that I have been carrying around, and that you see in the video above. Disclaimer: I purchased the giveaway bag with my own money. Nothing about this giveaway is sponsored or affiliated with any brand in any way.

The New Online Store Launch

I’m proud to announce the relaunch of Shop Pretty. I will be adding more items as time continues, but these items are particular favorites that are barely worn (or in some cases, never worn) at 50% or more off retail prices.

Shipping is free if you place an order of $50 or more, and below that it’s only $4.95 domestic (I do ship internationally!).

I would appreciate it if you would click “Like” on the storefront page and on any product you like – so I know what you like and can add more products based on your feedback. Thanks, and happy shopping! (We’ve already had several orders placed!)
