If Pink is the New Blog–Satin is Still a Pain

When it first came out on DVD, I watched Uptown Girls on repeat. It wasn’t a particularly great story line, but there were some killer clothes and fabulous shoes. I was also oddly attracted to the main character Molly, played by Brittney Murphy. She never had a care in the world. Her wardrobe was extensive, expensive and 100% enviable. Oddly, enough my favorite part was when her whole world came crashing down and she had to sell off all her amazing shoes.

You must think I am heartless, but really I assure you I am not. I simply want the chance to shop at a garage sale like that. The street sales in Baltimore consist of toilet seat tops (used), half eaten boxes of pizza, and the occasional miscellaneous child. However, last week my friend who happens to work for a great PR company called BrewPR visited her very own “Molly” like friend and grabbed all of her cast offs. Lucky for me, her foot was too large for this pair of satin Christian Lacroix.

I love these shoes—I hate these shoes. They are beautifully made, but lack the durability for a night out on the town. They make my legs look hot, but are absolutely impossible to pair with an outfit. I tried jeans and a simple top, but then the shoes didn’t show. I tried a flashy pencil skirt and sleek button down. It was a bit much.

After tearing apart my entire room, I decided on an all black outfit—simple black shift, black tights, and my beautiful purple satin Christian Lacroix stilettos. I added an element of gold, and viola—perfection. I even found some shoe guard from my Ugg boots that worked great for keeping away pesky stains. Now, if only I could get rid of these nasty blisters. I guess the price of perfection isn’t monetary in this case, or perhaps I just need to try out these beauties that come highly recommended by my fellow blogger! After all the shoe is always more comfortable on the other foot—or however that old saying goes.
