I took an unplanned absence from Mr Louboutin's work for 12 months. I think I reached a point where I felt like I had a good shoe collection (STOP PRESS DID I JUST SAY THAT???!) and didn't need anymore. 'Need' being the operative word; 'want' means something totally different.
So I have a new pair of work shoes. Although it's not a sexy silhouette, this style fits my foot much better than my current black Louboutin work shoes which are mostly unworn due to aforementioned ill-fitting-ness.
