Christian Louboutin knockoff alert
The other day, I saw a banner ad for louboutinbox.com. Given my animalistic attraction to Christian Louboutin (the shoes, not the man, though I'm sure he's sexy as well), I clicked like a mofo.
I almost needed a pacemaker. Christian Louboutin shoes for $150!!!! Now, loyal readers know I am not one who pays $150 for anything less important than a hospital bill. But seriously, for a pair of the most beautifully constructed shoes in the world which can cost thousands, I would cough up that bank in a hot second.
As I contemplated the credit card, my inner-journalist kicked me in the teeth and said, "IDIOT, you know better." I clicked around some more.
I saw this: Welcome to the louboutinbox Shop - a Nature Shop website offering a comprehensive range of Christian Louboutin shoes.

RED FLAG CITY. What in the name of good gouda is "products original packagemet"? Also, there was a totally shady picture of, like, insects with people's faces photoshopped over boxes of shoes. Nightmares.
I zoomed in on the shoes. As the former owner of several back alley Louis Vuittons, I just had a feeling. These weren't luxury items. These were like a watch spelled "Rolecks." Google confirmed all suspicions. Read here. Or here. Or here.
So beware of fakes, people. Do your research, take your $150 to Payless and leave with an armload of cheapies instead. Don't get swindled by a creepy site with bad grammar.
Your diva in the field,
