Louboutin vs Santi

Christian Louboutin continues to make a name for himself in the handbag world. The Christian Louboutin Loubistuds Clutch wowed us when we first viewed it. The perfect edginess was added to make that clutch a contender and a clutch that truly would amp up your night time outfits. The problem with that clutch was the price. Just over $1500, that is one pricey clutch.

More events are popping up for Fashion’s Night Out. We will continue to bring you our favorites, though we know we will miss hundreds of other events! Our favorite shoe designer, who continues to wow us with its handbag collection, Christian Louboutin, will be hosting two events in New York for Fashion’s Night Out.

Louboutin is offering a Champagne Foot Bath at their store on Madison Avenue.

Sarah Jessica Parker in Louboutin

They’re baaaacccckkk! That is right, Sex and the City 2 began filming today in NYC. The paparazzi were there along with fans hoping to spot the fashionable cast and get a glimpse into the movie. Sarah Jessica Parker’s character, Carrie Bradshaw, popped into the streets of NYC in Christian Louboutin accessories. She carried the Christian Louboutin Sylvia Large Softy Calf Hobo Bag with Hand Wrapped Leather Handle, $1,795, and wore the Christian Louboutin Gino Yellow and Black Round Toe T-Strap Shoes, $865.

Finally. FINALLY. I’ve finally found a Christian Louboutin handbag that I love without reservation and without criticism. I’ve been looking for this bag for a long time, and I’ve seen lots and lots of mediocre (or worse) handbags from Mr. Louboutin during my quest for one that I adore. But the Christian Louboutin Loubistuds Clutch is here now, and it has comforted me and made my long journey worth the time spent.

This is an interesting one. Now, I’m not a big fan of animal prints, save for my tiny soft spot for zebra, nor do I consider myself a fan of furry bags, which inevitably bring up images of those gift bags with pink fur; yikes. But when I saw this Christian Louboutin Leopard-Print Clutch in person yesterday, it was pretty captivating.

Christian Louboutin Marianna HoboI really wish that I liked Christian Louboutin bags. I really WANT to like them. I like the brand’s shoes quite a bit, probably more so than any other well-known brand. But more often than not, whenever I see one of their bags, my gut reaction is decidedly “meh.” And that’s exactly what I think about the Christian Louboutin Marianna Hobo.

Oh Christian Louboutin how you intrigue me, time and time again. We’ve had countless mini-debates about what we think about CL handbags. For the most part the feedback I get is that CL shoes are totally amazing while CL handbags, although sometimes amazing, are always a bit overpriced. I can’t say I disagree.

Christian Louboutin Pillow Clutch

I came across the Christian Louboutin Pillow Clutch and once again found myself kinda wanting it to be mine.

I’ve come to a conclusion folks, I am constantly intrigued by Christian Louboutin handbags. It goes practically without saying, Louboutin shoes are gorgeous, chic, and often considered a must-have from any shoe lover. Well, what about the handbags? There are some out there who dismiss Louboutin handbags because they are over-priced and nowhere near as fabulous as the shoes.

Christian Louboutin Mount Street Bag

Well, I beg to differ.

Shoe designers cross over and become bag designers with varying amounts of success. The recent example that most of us know best is Jimmy Choo: the long-time shoe brand added a bag line a few years ago and hasn’t looked back. They have a dedicated following and have used bags as a way to introduce a new group of women to the brand that may not have previously thought they needed $800 stilettos in their lives.

Doesn’t everyone need a bit of glitter in their lives? I think so. When Megs sent me a link to the Christian Louboutin Glittered Pump this morning, I couldn’t NOT write about it. Despite the fact that I can’t wear heels (a long-ago broken ankle, painful story), I could be easily convinced to risk personal injury for these stunning shoes. They’re a complete fantasy – like ruby slippers for a grown-up, urban Dorothy – except instead of taking you back home when you click your heels, they take you to a fabulous party with an open bar.
