Louis Vuitton’s Folies Pump is the sassiest suede peep toe to grace the runway for fall/winter ’12. With a studded heel and peek-a-boo cutout accompanied by a dazzling bow atop (engraved with an LV of course) The Folies Pump is a product of fierce elegance. The amount of class this pump holds is unreal. These will surely dress up just about any old thing, which is exactly why they’re unanimously place under BUY IT. Need them, want them, love them!
The Garconne High Boot in Calf is definitely an item that would considerably make you second guess whether it’s worth going to jail for. Seeing as it’s not the most affordable footwear with a hefty price tag of $1,500. This boot couldn’t be more fitting for Fall/Winter must haves – or at the very least a resemblance of these due to the monstrous price. Almost nothing tops a cognac leather flat boot for this particular season, it’s the perfect addition. Without hesitation, this item is listed under the BORROW category, especially if buying them is undoubtedly out of your budget.
Lastly, the Lou Pump is sadly the least favorable shoe of the collection and just sad in itself. The shallow sidewalls with the peep toe and embellished bow create a hot mess of Louis staples mashed together. The shiny patent leather adds to the over-the-top pump bringing an 80’s hooker vibe into the mix as if there already weren’t too many ingredients in this recipe. Need I mention the color scheme? Fail. Don’t get me wrong though, there are glimpses of greatness here, just not as a whole – change the material to leather, keep it one color and you’d have what would be a classic Louis pump. The verdicts in: my only option is to coat this disaster with gasoline, light a match and BURN it.
