Christian Louboutin sale Thursday morning ignited a shopping bug across the sample sale world. Not that I need another pair of red-soled beauties but any time these are discounted, it is worth inspection. Most of the shoes in this sale were a sellout almost immediately.
I rarely buy shoes at full retail price and neither should you. You can almost always get a great pair on sale. I even found a pair of the uber-popular flaming Prada lovelies at the designer outlet in San Marcos for a few hundred dollars. For more on my new favorite Texas store, read my previous review here.
While I'm all for scoring designer merch on the cheap, I don't recommend buying shoes secondhand, unless they are brand spanking new. You never know what kind of foot funk the previous owner had.

But when you find new shoes at the secondhand shops, go for it. When I came across these gorgeous, never-worn Louboutins on Fashionphile, I had to share.
These are as ridiculous, fabulous and as "out there" as they come. I think they are the perfect shoe for a prim and proper sheath dress. What a way to add an unexpected surprise to an outfit. They're "New Without Tags," size 39.5 and cost a steep $1195.

I'm also loving this Hermes Rouge H Rivale wrap bracelet. It's a great way to get that Hermes Collier de Chien look for less. Those bracelets typically start around $1000 and go way north of that. This one from Ann's Fabulous Finds is $500.
