if you were going to splurge....

Posted by   + Show Post

on something really nice and expensive (think shoes, a bag, a dress, etc) would you go for something classic and signature so it can be worn with everything or would you go with something funky because hey if your going to spend it it should look like it!

i'm torn.  SO is buying me a pair of Christian Louboutin's for my bday (in April).  he told me to pick out the pair i want and send him the link.  i've wanted a pair forever! and always said if i was going to get a pair i'd go with a classic black patent leather pair that i can wear with anything. but now i'm thinking maybe i should get a crazy bright color or something. like hot pink or cheetah print. i have no idea! lol

what would you do?

I would go with crazy. Leopard print goes with (almost) anything too!  If I were to buy something high end like that, I would want them to be different and really look like it...not like a pair I could have got at Payless.  I have a really crazy pair of shoes I bought that are zebra, white leather, pink leather, and have a gold chain clasp.  They are insane.  But you would be surprised how many outfits they go with!  Crazy Crazy Crazy!!!

 I have a pair of black ones from a collection a few years ago.  They last forever, so I would go with black.  You will get multiple years out of them this way.

I wouldn't buy black pumps, because I like designers for style over status. There is nothing special about a black pump, red bottom or not. I would get something versatile but it would have to be stylish.
