OMG you are totally toying with my emotions, including the $845 Loub's in this mix!

and the patterns on everything else are SPOT ON for what I'm looking for.

I didn't realize it was a TREND! there have to be cheaper/flatter shoes with this pattern now! :-)

I am desperately looking for shoes inspired by those Loubies! but so far, no luck :-( Had to include them as eye candy, it's an inspiration board after all ;-)

I love to hear you say "desparately looking", I'm the one that asked about them :-) maybe this board will help find something! Fingers crossed.
