Lookbook: Work appropriate?

The debut of the sky high Louboutins... I have this little conundrum because I totally want to wear these shoes to work but because of the heel height I'm so self conscious of what to wear it with because I don't want my outfits to turn slightly stripper-ish. I settled with a pretty conservative outfit but I don't think it actually worked.

What I'm Wearing:
Top: Banana Republic
Skirt: Wilfred (from Aritzia)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

I do have to admit that no matter what I wore that day, I still felt amazing in my shoes. In fact, as I was walking down the street this man (who was dressed very nicely in a suit and tie) stopped me and told me how much he liked my shoes. It was more like "Those shoes. are. awesome." BTW, this happens to me A LOT. I never knew how much men loved shoes but I always get stopped when I am wearing either my Jimmy Choos or my Louboutins. Kinda funny.

I saw these pictures of Victoria Beckham in Us Weekly wearing my same shoes (and several readers pointed it out to me as well, thank you!!) and loved how she paired it with this gray dress (from her line) as I could actually see myself wearing something like this to the office and it would be still be work appropriate.

Of course, how could I not rely on the lady with the best Louboutin collection ever. Love her. I will make sure to get my style inspiration from her the next time I pull these babies out.

  8. be quiet: the outfit was adorable. Pretty much anything you wear with those heavenly shoes will be great. I'd love to see them dressed down with a skinny jean and jacket and cool headband! Can you tell I want you to be my dolly?

  10. Victoria is a great fashion icon- she has impeccable style!! She is my favorite celeb. Those shoes are goooooorgeous! I think they look just fine with your outfit, you aren't wearing them with a super short skirt so stripper-ish is out of the question! Just rock them, like you always do :)

  11. The shoes are to die for and I really like them with that outfit. I think they would look amazing with a black belted shirt dress. Can't wait to see the many ways you find to wear them!

  12. I would have worn them to work in my corporate days, and my last job was at a bank, so I say go for it.

  14. I think you struck a balance. Because of the flowy blouse you aren't showing too much on top so it's perfectly fine to show a little high heel leg. I think Mrs. Beckham pulls it off right too, because her dress is past the knee. Nothing too sexy about that!

  15. I'd stop you too,'cause those shoes are fabulous like the rest of the outfit!

  17. I think you look great. Your outfit is very cute, but I reckon those shoes would have made any outfit amazing.

  18. I'd like to see the shoes paired with your white blazer [You did have one in a different Lookbook right?] and a skirt. I think that'd be work appropriate!

    And...how could a red-blooded male NOT stop you in those shoes?

  19. I think you should have tucked the top into the skirt, because the proportion looks off and makes the outfit a bit frumpy and shapeless. Generally, I don't think that sort of top goes with a skirt, though; it would look great with slim fitting pants. However, I think those shoes could definitely wbe ork appropriate, probably best with a skirt or dress that goes below the knee like Victoria is wearing in the pictures. Lovely shoes.

  23. Tiffany, looks lovely on you! I am a person that cannot do heels, so it always amazes me. I think it looks work appropriate!

  24. Aw don't be silly, you look great and that outfit is totally work appropriate. I think it's all about how you incorporate it, and utilizing more conservative items with those heels is a wise choice.

    hahah that photo of Posh on the swing is hilarious. She looks way too over dressed for a swing.

  25. Whoa. Whoa whoa whoa. THOSE SHOES. ARE INSANE. SO INSANE. THEY MAKE ME TALK. IN SHORT SENTENCES. BECAUSE I AM GASPING. FOR AIR.

    NEEEEEED.

  26. These are definitely one of your most drool-worthy heels! Amazing! I'd love to wear those shoes to work, but I'm not sure how safe they would be on our freshly waxed floors! But if Posh can wear them while on a swing, who knows... ;)

  28. Looks fab! I have a quick question for you regarding your louboutins - do you wear them out before replacing your soles? -Jen

  29. Wow, those heels are awesome! They look great on you! Can't wait to see what you pair them with next. :)

  30. Stripper-ish? Hardly

    The ish? Most definitely.

    Also, that old NBC special featuring Victoria Beckham forever changed my view on her. She is awesome.

  31. I think they would look hot with a high waist skirt that is below the knee like Victoria is wearing~! A slim silhouette that looks even longer with your super high heels~! ;-)
