Ladies who Louboutin: Shoes worn by Lisa & Camille on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

I’m a self-proclaimed addict of the Real Housewives franchise on Bravo, so naturally I’m tuning in to the latest addition to the series: the Beverly Hills cast!  I’m pretty convinced that Bravo isn’t going to stop until we know just how every well-to-do woman lives, spends her money and catfights across every major city in the country (or the world, for that matter), but so far I’m along for the ride.  Of course, I could get all analytical and talk about how the show highlights the fact that money doesn’t necessarily bring happiness and security – these ladies all have their share of problems, let’s face it – but I’m much more interested in talking about the shoes.  Like previous housewives, the latest crop of ladies love their Louboutins – and who can blame them?  In the last episode, “The Art of War”, I spotted two housewives wearing the brand on the show and I had to find the shoes, along with some lower-priced lookalikes.  Let’s check it out:

Lisa VanderPump is an early fave of mine when it comes to the Beverly Hills cast.  She’s the posh, but likeable, housewife whose dog, named Giggy the Pom, blogs on and has his own Twitter page – you know, just your average pooch.  While searching for what to wear to the premiere of Kelsey Grammer’s play La Cage Aux Folles on Broadway, we see Lisa wearing this shoe while trying clothes for the event:

This is the Christian Louboutin Poseidon and it was once available for $1,195 at Saks Fifth Avenue, but now appears to be sold out everywhere online.  For a similar look for less, try these shoes:

The Miss Me Jocelyn-22 for $59.95 sold by flyJane via Amazon or the Miss Me Nitron for the same price directly from flyJane.

The Carlos by Carlos Santana Pleasure in pewter for $54.45 with free 2-day shipping from Endless.

The Stuart Weitzman Avalon in natural python for $199 (regularly $398) at Jildor or in Buff Mica Python for $200 at 6pm.

Then there’s Camille Grammer, who is primarily known for being the wife of Kelsey Grammer (and we all know how that turns out), but is already making a name for herself on the show because she’s perfect for stirring up a little drama.  She vamps it up for Kelsey’s premiere in these hot pink satin Louboutins, which add a nice splash of color to her LBD (emphasis on the “L”):



This appears to be the pink version of the Christian Louboutin Greissimo, which I could only find on the UK site Cricket Liverpool.  But, here are some shoes that are very Camille and much less expensive:

This is the Bebe Lola in pink, available at for $149.

There’s also this feisty pink pump, the Martinez Valero Carolina for $81.75 with free shipping at Zappos.

By the way, if you found yourself seriously tempted by the chocolate Louboutins Lisa bought in an earlier episode, check out the chocolate shoes (sans red sole) over at Gayle’s Chocolates for $40 – $45 a piece.  It’s definitely a nice gift option for any shoe lover friends you might have.  Or, you know, for yourself.

More or Less: Jimmy Choo Crown lookalike, the Enzo Angiolini Sully

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010


I’ve definitely been in holiday shoe overdrive lately, checking out all things shiny and pretty for the feet, and the Jimmy Choo Crown is another example of a pair of shoes that would be a great evening wear option.  The two-tone metallic color of these glitter pumps could certainly work well with a wide variety of looks and they’ll also add a nice dose of shimmer.  You can find the Jimmy Choo Crown at Saks Fifth Avenue for $695, which is actually not a bad price for Jimmy Choo (at least relative to something like the exorbitant $2,495 Jimmy Choo Niagra…whoa), but it’s still out of the realm of possibility, cost-wise, for many of us.  If you want a less expensive pair with a similar look,  here’s another option:

This is the Enzo Angiolini Sully and it’s available at Nordstrom for a fraction of the price at $88.95.  It’s also a plus that this shoe is sold in a wide variety of sizes (4-12) and 3 different width options to help ensure the best fit.  If you prefer a closed toe version, check out the Enzo Angiolini Smiles for $94.95.

Note: If you order at Nordstom and spend over $100, be sure to apply coupon code HOLIDAY10 for free shipping.

Put A Bow On It: Boutique 9 Glamy & Steve Madden Minnii heels

Monday, November 15th, 2010


When it comes to finding the ideal pair of holiday party shoes, it’s hard to go wrong if you treat your feet like you would a exquisitely wrapped gift – i.e. package them in something shiny and top it all off with a big fancy bow.  That’s exactly what you can do with the perfectly pretty Boutique 9 Glamy platform pump in black (pictured above), which features a satin upper and a sparkly rhinestone studded bow.  In addition to black, it also comes in two metallic color options, each of which are versatile enough to potentially make these your go-to pair for instant, easy glam whenever the situation calls for it this season:



You can get a great deal on these shoes right now at Nine West.  They are on sale for $139.99 (regularly $160) and you get an instant 30% off at checkout.  Then, apply coupon code NWLOVES to get an additional $25 off $75, which further discounts the price to $72.99 with free shipping.  Note: If you prefer a d’orsay version of this shoe with a lower heel and no platform, be sure to check out the Boutique 9 Derry that comes in the same color options.  It’s available for $160 and drops to $135 with free shipping after the above coupon.

I also noticed a very similar pair of shoes from Steve Madden:

This is the Steve Madden Minnii slingback bow pump in blush or black and it’s available on preorder at Steve Madden for $129.95.  Coupon code Rmn15f takes 15% off and gives free shipping, which reduces the price to $110.46.  The expected ship date is 11/25.

More or Less: Christian Louboutin Canon & Canonita sheer bootie knockoffs

Saturday, November 13th, 2010

If you love the light and airy concoction known as the Christian Louboutin Canon 140 chiffon bootie, or the similar Christian Louboutin Canonita, you’re definitely not alone.  Multiple celebs have been seen wearing these styles – Jennifer Lopez, Hilary Duff, Lea Michele, Katherine Heigl and Jessica Biel, just to name a few – but all that sheer goodness comes at a high cost.  The Canon 140 is available in black at Barney’s for $1,295 or in nude at Luisaviaroma for $1,095 and the Canonita 140 is available in white at Net-a-Porter for $995.  If you’re looking for a less expensive sheer bootie with ruching detail along the front, these lookalike shoes will provide maximum exposure for the feet, but for a whole lot less:

The black version of the Steve Madden Damsell has a dot pattern in the fabric similar to the Canon 140, making it a closer lookalike, but I’m really liking the contrast found in the distinct black and champagne version:

It also comes in purple and each are available for $109.95 at Steve Madden.  Apply coupon code Rmn15f to get 15% off and free shipping, which makes them $93.46.  The expected ship date is 11/15.

The Chinese Laundry Haylie shootie is available in black or bronze for $89 at  Coupon code VISA takes 20% off, making them $71.20, and free shipping is included (coupon may require Visa payment).

The Chinese Laundry Haylie in blush (or black) is available at Shoemall for $89.95.  Coupon code VISASHOEMALL takes 20% off until 11/30 (may require Visa payment) or use SPECIAL15 for 15% off (expiration unknown).

For a similar style in red, try the Nine West Exposure for $88.95 with free overnight shipping at Endless.  It also comes in black.

Hope everyone has a fab weekend!
