According to the Christian Louboutin website, M. Louboutin believes every fashionista should own a pair of Very Prive 120s.
Now, I don’t consider myself to be a “fashionsita”, and I’ve never subscribed to the idea that there are certain items “every woman must own”. All the same, though, I kinda wish I could get that in writing from him – ideally addressed to ShoeperMan – because there’s one thing I do agree with Louboutin on, and it’s that Very Prive here is everything a peep toe should be. That’s why I’m showing you this nude patent version, even although it’s such a classic I know you’ve seen them 1,000 times before.
These shoes never get old, though: they’re perfectly simple, and simply perfect – and that’s really all that needs to be said about them. They’ve been released in various colours and fabrics over the years, but this patent version comes in nude and black, and one day I fully intend to own them in both of those colours. And also a few more. It’s good to have goals, people, trust me.
At £545, they’re definitely not cheap, but if you’re new to Louboutin and looking for a “starter shoe”, so to speak, I don’t think you can go wrong with something like this, which is as versatile as it gets. Look at it this way: you only have to wear them 545 times for the cost-per-wear to be just £1. Now THAT’S a bargain…
