Her goal was to design pieces that would fit a curvy body better. I like the…

They range in price from $29-$79.50 and in sizes up to XXL or 4X. I…

I love you…but I can’t afford you.

There comes a time in our life, where we realize that our love for shoes will sometimes break our hearts. Like these amazingly beautiful Christian Louboutin’s. They are $1,375; more than what most of you pay for rent. That’s where the broken heart comes in. There’s no way I can afford these delicious luxurious suede delights. I guess it’s time to find a replica pair.
