Step Into Spring with Christian Louboutin

Christian Louboutin Striped Damask Pump

Christian Louboutin. What is there really to say? The name speaks for itself. The shoes tell the story. I don't think anyone else knows how to do a sexier pump than this line, and its clear why women feel the need to drop their entire weekly pay check on a pair. If Chanel is the queen of the handbag dare I say Louboutin is king of the pump.

I am feeling really down about the NYC weather right about now. I am so over the wind, the snow, the sleet and the bitter cold. These shoes scream summer and I think if you have the cash for a total fun pair of super shoes, these could really dress up nearly every summer sundress from bohemian to maxi, night out to backyard bbq.

Although these are a great inspiration, I don't think its very realistic that I (or many others) will be dropping the $850 it takes to bring these babies home. Luckily, bright patterned pumps is a big trend for Spring/Summer and there are plenty of options in the $100 and under range.

The Two Lips Patterned Pumps for only $89 dollars and available at follow the same patterned look of the Louboutin version and have a nice platform to give you feet a sexy boost.

The Nine West Aleksy Pump are not multi-colored like the Louboutin's but offer the same sexy, shape and use of a bright color and patterned material that will instantly off-set a simple neutral or complementing bright colored look. And at only $79 these are basically a no brainer.

Finally our "wild card" the Colin Stuart for Victoria's Secret Tye Day Pump (in the white/green/pink version) although a diversion in the style of the Louboutin's have a similar island, boho feel and will make a statement with a summer look. The combo of the cotten tye dye embellishment with leather heel and platform also remind me of the dressy/undressy feel of the Louboutins.

Which bright statement shoe will you be rocking this summer?

Fashionably Yours,
