#17: Louboutin + Milly!

This is a bit delayed, but a few weeks ago I finally got my hands on a pair of my holy grail Louboutins and I'm hugely excited!!

This was the only order I made during the net-a-porter.com half-yearly sale and of course the Louboutins weren't on sale but it didn't matter seeing as I've been waiting for a pair of black everyday pumps to come back in stock in my size!

And here they are... Pigalle 100s in black patent!
And you can see again this pair has the elasticised heel grip <3 Perfect for me! So I got these in my true to size because I went half a size down for the 120s and I've previously tried 85s and it was a perfect fit. Turns out 100s are a little squishy in the toe box (compared to even 120s) so these are slightly pinching but they didn't have any left in one size up so I had to settle for these. Plus I figured they would stretch after a while (which my decolletes have already started doing and will soon be too big for me!)

I did also order some swimwear which was heavily reduced. I ended up returning two items - a J Crew bikini top and Calvin Klein bottoms but they were hardly worth posting about. I did keep this bright fun Milly bikini - I absolutely love the colour and the style is very resort wear.


So its not exactly for swimming laps of the pool in, but I can just imagine wearing this on a beachside resort holiday! And Milly is usually quite expensive, so I thought 50GBP for the set was pretty good!

Anyway, because I like my photos, here's a few shots of my Pigalle collection :) 100s and 120s together for some Pigalle loving.

  1. Oooh oohh.. I have heard that the pigalles are toe squishing.
    Now please advise if I'm size 7 Aus.. What size should i be getting in the 100s? And is it true the 120 is more comfortable?

    1. I'd be getting at least a 37.5 in pigalle 100s! So 120s aren't exactly more comfortable because of the vertiginous height but the toe box was definitely more roomy so on that front more comfy :)

    2. Thanks for the advice. I have Very Prive (my only CLs) in 38. They are too big but I have told myself that it's my size! :(

    3. I've owned both 100s and 120s and 120s killed my feet, one toe at a time. Ok I do have fat feet, but I got the WORST muffin toe foot in the 120s and I literally couldn't walk in them. Eventually they ended up on eBay. I'm generally a 35.5 and I take the 100s in 35.

  2. I just found your blog through the vogue forum... <3
    I tried these on in David Jones, the toe box was ridiculously small for my big hoof (I am a 10). Even in Jimmy Choo I get some that fit and some that don't, sizing is so inconsistent! Anyway, lovely shoes you have!!

    1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Don't you hate inconsistent shoe sizing? Though often it depends on what kind of foot you have which makes it more annoying!
