Bloody shoes

I recently took my Christian Louboutins to the Leather Spa to repair the red sole. At first I didn’t really think I needed to replace them. However, after seeing the results I’m glad I did. Without a doubt owning a pair of Loubs is considered an investment. I don’t plan on buying replacements so its important to take care of them. I decided to try Leather Spa after some extensive research. They have various locations in midtown so I utilized the most convenient location which is Grand Central station.

Once you drop off the shoes the Leather Spa team examines them carefully. Honestly I was expecting to spend $35 per pair as advertised online. But, things started adding up once they pointed out what needed to be fixed. One pair costed $80 dollars to fix as they were boots. As much as it hurt I dropped them off and left. They called me back about two weeks later informing me the shoes were ready.

I absolutely recommend repairing your Louboutins (or any other shoes). They did an amazing job and the shoes are basically spanking new. The cheapest way would be to protect the red sole as soon as you purchase a new pair. The less they have to repair the cheaper it cost to fix.

Bell Sleeve Obsession

The weather was perfect in NYC for Presidents Day weekend. Although I’ve been busy with my career, family and personal life – I couldn’t help but take a trip to the city & shoot this look.

Lately I’ve been obsessed with statement blouses. I found this perfect bell sleeve piece at Zara (it literally goes with everything.) I paired the top with boyfriend jeans to make the look casual yet chic. Below is how I styled it!
