Farming in Louboutins


I don’t know many women who aren’t a least a little shoe crazy, so honestly my addiction doesn’t make me feel too guilty. I mean really, who doesn’t get a little excited when you see that tell tale red soul of a Louboutin?

Yes, I realize I’m a farmer by day, however I love a dressy night out. My retirement plans include a pied-à-terre in Paris, with a closet dedicated solely (pun intended) to the aforementioned footwear, so it only seems right to begin the collection now, because let's face it, on a farmer's salary, Louboutin’s put a serious dent in the ‘marketing’ budget and it’s going to take a few years to accumulate enough of these beauties to fill said closet.

My first pair have their own dedicated shelf in my office, where I can keep a close eye on them as well as use them as inspiration to work a little harder everyday!  When we were about to launch the D'oro fortified Walnut Wine to trade and media, I realized the time was ripe for purchase, I mean I had to convey the new winery ‘brand & image’ right? They came to me through a lovely sales lady at Holt Renfrew, home of the coveted Pink bag, she even sent a lovely note the following week to see how the two of us were making out.

Convincing the accountant and auditor of this purchase was another matter entirely and I still think they missed the true value and meaning of that purchase, but a girl’s gotta try right?
