30 Day Shoe Challenge: Day 18

A few years ago I spied these Christian Louboutin patent leather pointy-toe heels on Gwen Stefani and almost passed out (well, that’s a little dramatic, but you get my point). I went to the store, and gasp, they had them in a kitten heel, which is just what I need for my days running around the city. How thrilled was I then, to receive them for a birthday gift? Well, sadly, this story doesn’t have a happy ending. They were too small, but when I exchanged them for the next size up, they were just too big, even with a footpad, ankle grips and cotton stuffed in the toe (yep, I’ll go to extreme lengths for my footwear). So, they have collected dust on my shelf for years. To quote the great Mick Jagger, “You can’t always get what you want.”
