Post Turkey Monday...

I'm not sure if its the rainy and cold weather or the fact that Thanksgiving Break is over...but rolling out of bed was quite a challenge this morning. Hopefully a gravy jug of espresso will help me get through the day.

Why Do you Wear Red Soles?

The master who designs what makes every leg in the world sexy, Christian Louboutin, explains the women who buy his shoes:
"There’s the sexy side, and then there is the Parisian side, which is complementary but also the opposite. If you are very chic you might not need an extra drop of chicness, so you go for the sexy side and buy my shoes because they are...” — Louboutin grasps around for the right word — “tarty. We get very smart women coming in and buying a pair to feel a little more sluttish. And then, thank God,” he exclaims, “we also get the hookers coming in the store, who buy my shoes because they are superchic. You see, whatever you have, if you add a drop of the opposite, then it just becomes a little more sexy.”
