It happens. Sometimes all you need is to wear the perfect pair of shoes to let go of doubts, believe in what you can do, and conquer challenges. Let them transform and lift you, as Mr. Louboutin would say.
Black pumps are classics, but red Louboutins are just right for the holiday season. Picture a black dinner dress paired with red heels and finished with emerald earrings! Here are some of our red Louboutin picks:

ALDO Genovote bracelet … so guidolicious! I imagine this on Danielle from the TRHONJ, as she drives Theresa to flip a table, again.

When it comes to style, I admit to coveting looks that don’t exactly fit my frame. I’m tall and rather Junoesque. However, skinny jeans are my favorite type of bottoms. I have thick thighs that are approaching cottage-cheese stage; but I adore short skirts and leggings without tunics. I usually wear flats. But I lust for five-inch platform heels.
This all brings me to New York-based socialite Olivia Palermo, the villainess of the reality show The City, and fashion blogger extraordinaire When it comes to differing body types, whoa, it’s like comparing a clementine and a Ponderosa tomato! This is me, embarrassing the shit outta myself:
And this is Olivia in Saint Barts, with her boyfriend. She’s so bleeping lucky to have a hot guy.
But I’m saving skinny envy for another post. I went to my ASOS Fashionfinder account, and guess what? They had a section celebrating Olivia’s amazing style. When I scanned through photo after photo, I found this:
Nice! I’ve seen the “ironic” button-down and skirt look among hipster girls for years, but Olivia makes it sophisticated. Everything — her shirt, dress, and statement necklace — looks impeccable. Also, she has combed her hair back. In a generation where bedhead is all too common, I like that.
Now, Olivia is rich and thin and all that. How can you get inspired for less? I’ve used my trusty Polyvore set maker to re-create Olivia’s style. Whether you have less than $50 per item to spend, or more than $200 lying around, sometimes imitation is the best way to be chic.
If you do meet Olivia Palermo, though, just don’t mention Whitney Port. Lol!
P.S: I’ve come up with three ways to steal Olivia’s style, whether you’re a ramen-noodle eater who shops at Forever 21, or your family OWNS Forever 21 … with that cool technology hyperlink, you can go to polyvore.com and buy what fancies you … happy Veteran’s Day, and don’t forget to donate a little (or a lot) to any organization that helps our men and women in the military.

Gorgeous picture … reminds me of Halle Berry, in good and bad ways … there’s a shadow side to Hollywood glamour, and all the pretty clothes and makeup don’t always hide the sadness … Behlor
