Shoes inspired by Lisa’s pink crystal Louboutins on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
I wasn’t really planning on talking about Christian Louboutin crystal heels again today, as I did in my last post, but after catching up on the latest episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on DVR over the weekend, I was inspired by Lisa VanderPump, aka “Pinky”, and her pink Christian Louboutin shoes, which she was lucky enough to get signed by Mr. Louboutin himself (the shoes are pictured above in a screen shot from the episode). Even though it’s only the first season for the Beverly Hills cast, we already know that Lisa is a Louboutin darling – we’ve seen her wear Louboutins in previous episodes and she even had some pink Louboutins made out of chocolate – and we also know that she has a strong affinity for the color pink (I can relate). I couldn’t find these particular shoes, which are fuschia satin with a crystal-encrusted heel, anywhere online. However, as I pointed out in my last post, the crystal Louboutins are typically much more expensive (even for Louboutin) and I’m guessing this pair is likely in the $2,000-$3,000 range. If you have the funds, you may want to inquire about this shoe at a Louboutin boutique, but if you want something pink and sparkly in your life for much less, you might try one of these shoes:
These shoes are still quite a splurge and much lighter in color, but I have to admit that I melted a bit when I first saw them – total princess shoes. This is the Giuseppe Zanotti E16130 “Barbie” pink glitter pump and you can get them at Endless for $550 with free overnight shipping. Update: This is a less expensive style to check out: the Chinese Laundry Hot Hot in blush for $69.95 with free shipping at Zappos.
Here’s a similar pair for a bit less, the Butter Cleo pump in pink glitter. It’s $286 with free shipping at Amazon (in most sizes).
Go for a bolder shade of pink with the Betsey Johnson Iridescence, which is $150 with free shipping at Zappos.
Keep the shine contained to the heel like Lisa’s pair with the Martinez Valero Ozzie, which have a look-alike pattern on the heel from another Louboutin pair, the Christian Louboutin Eugenie. Get these for $129 at martinezvalero.com.
The Bordello by Pleaser Violette-14 is pink, covered in rhinestones and available for $123.95 with free 2-day shipping from Endless.
A final option that I found is the Lauren Jones Zinger pump, which has a more exaggerated texture that almost looks like confetti. Endless has this pair for $109 with free overnight shipping.
