I recently rediscovered by Christian Louboutin pigalle pumps… How they found there way in the back of my closet I have no idea! I suppose I’ve been enamored by platforms that give your heels extra inches and the crazy innovative new shoe designs out there that I had forgotten about the tried and true. A great classic pair of pumps are truly the little black dress and blue jeans of accessories – and they worked PERFECTLY with both of those wardrobe staples and so much more. My husband and I had our first alone date night since Max had been born a couple of months ago and as I walked around the house in 2 different half pairs of crazy shoes trying to decide what to wear with my Helmut Lang leather leggings I realized it was those little black pumps that perfectly completed the look. The pointy toe, a bit of toe cleavage and that perfectly acceptable 100ml (aka 4 inch) heel height I had renounced in favor of taller more showy options was once again the apple of my eye. Sure, they’re a bit beaten up – they were in fat my first pair of red soles from almost a decade ago – but these pumps are still 100% relevant, chic and the perfect pair of shoes. Yes, they are a bit worn now, no I will never get rid of them, but I might invest in a new pair to take me through the next decade… Check out some of my favorite new (but always classic) pumps that will last you forever go with everything and NEVER go out of style.
