why red bottoms are red.

so what's the story with christian louboutin's signature red sole? per shoerazzi.com, the red sole came about by accident:

louboutin was working on a shoe in his studio when he felt something was missing. louboutin then “realized that the black sole of the shoe was too dark.” a nearby assistant was painting her nails red with chanel when louboutin grabbed it, painted the shoes' sole red and voilĂ ; the red sole was born.

there you have it.

rare and random vent.

if i trashed rooms or hit people every time they pissed me off, i'd be in jail. so would you. i am so over the bratty, self-entitlement nature of these kids these days. that includes your boy, blondie. tip: forgive yourself and move on. you can't make anyone else do the same. boy bye. click here for the background. p.s. - i'd love to talk about the ridiculous fans who refuse to call a duck a duck. but i suddenly realize that it's not worth the time it takes to type it out.
