I can't wait...


Christian Louboutin Clic Clac Lace Booties £620

...for these bad boys to go in the sale! Ok, they're almost sold out, so chances are they may not even make it to the sale. Seriously though, how utterly gorgeous are these booties? My only complaint is that they are suede. Is it just me who has a problem with the fact that so many winter shoes/boots are made of suede. Allow me to explain:

British winter weather + suede = ruined shoes.

I have 3 or 4 pairs of suede shoes, and I only wear them if the skies are blue and there isn't a bloody cloud in sight. I know there are suede protector products, but do they actually work? I'd be reluctant to use them on an expensive pair of shoes in case they ended up spoiling them. Sorry about the rant, but every year its the same; gorgeous winter shoes and boots made of suede (or velvet even!) pop up in the shops and no-one else seems bothered about it. Am I the only one who gets irked by this? Have any of you ladies (or gents) had good experience with suede protector products?

I too feel the same way about suede during winter weather. It just doesn't fare well against the snow and ice! I stick to patent leather during that time. If the shoe gets dirty, I just rub it in a little snowy spot and its shiny again haha. Crappy tricks of the trade on a school campus miles and hours from home :)
