By now, I can comfortably say most retail prices don't scare me. But, my eyes almost popped out of their sockets yesterday when gal pal and I visited a Louboutin boutique. While browsing I drooled over gorgeous exotic skin pumps. There were crocodiles, alligators, water snakes and much more. Mr. Louboutin, you are really bad for my wallet. Exotic skins make such a bold luxurious statement, I feel giddy just thinking about the idea.
I totally fell in adoration with a pair of most beautiful red peep toe pumps. It's the pair on the most right hand side. It is this deep blue-red. The one on far left is more orange-red. The purple on right is pretty snazzy too.
As I was saying before, these shoes are just too gorgeous; I just had to show its side profile. Anyhoo, I had to double check the price again when I saw the retail price of $5995. Yes, it's not a misprint! The SA justified the price by saying these skins were treated. I wonder how many alligators or crocodiles can I buy with this price? What is the maximum you will pay for a pair of shoes?
