Christmas: a time for angels, and I'm so lucky to have one who understands my shoe fetish and feeds into it (thank you soooo much!). Now onto the very special present pictured in my last post. These traveled several thousand miles to get to me and are a really rare treat. They were sold only in the platform 150 mm version here in the USA, and those sold quickly. I was bummed I missed out on them. Because I'm trying to be more financially conservative (not easy for a Christian Louboutin fan!), I just couldn't justify the $1195 plus tax price tag for them. Then my shoe angel stepped in at just the right time. Here they are, my Christian Louboutin Clou Noeud spiked slingback in nude kid leather, with a 120 mm heel:

Christmas Day 2010
I opened my presents early this morning. Then, it was a pretty relaxing day with my family. We went to church, then out to brunch (really good food, including prime rib and smoked salmon), then watched the Lakers lose to the Miami heat (on TV, of course, and I'm now soooo glad I didn't spring for the inflated cost of tickets to this game--oh, well, the Lakers are NOT out of the running for a 3rd straight championship--I have confidence my boys will get the job done!). I got some really good presents, including jewelry from my parents and homemade goodies from my coworkers. My little sister, who couldn't afford to buy gifts for several years, due to being in dental school and working on paying her debts, gave me a generous check and more jewelry. I was pleasantly surprised.
