    Hello everyone, this is my first post as i'm a new member. Hope everyone is well! :-)

    I have a problem and wondering if i could get some help from anyone who's into fashion, ideally shoes!

    It's my girlfriends birthday soon (September) and i was wanting to buy her something special, something that i know she would like. I was talking to her best friend last week about what i should get her as i was undecided. I was told that she's in love with a pair of shoes - Christian Louboutin 'Dillian Flower Pumps' so i decidced to have a look and see where the best place was to buy her a pair.

    The problem i'm having is that i can't seem to find a trusted official website to buy them from. They seem very scarce and rare, possibly because they are last seasons? I'm not sure.

    Hopefully there will be someone who could point me in the right direction. I'm looknig for the red style in size 3 or 3.5 and under £1,000

    Any help would be fantastic. :-)

    - Lee

    Ive looked on most websites to be honest. I would maybe go to or call selfridges or harrods. This is an alternative tho but not designer

    Hi, thanks for the reply. It's weird how they have vanished as it seems! Is this normal? :-)

    Wow, your girlfriend is insanely lucky. You can try Saks http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/main/...m0452513052104, but I don't think they do international shipping...
    Btw Louboutins run a bit small, so you should probably get your girlfriend to try on a pair of any louboutins to confirm her size...

    I'd lovveee another pair of Louboutin's, but that won't be happening anytime soon.

    Anyway OP, you definitely need to get her to try them on. cnguyen is right, CL's don't run true to size, and some women find they have to go up a half size, or in fact down.

    Ooh, that is excellent news for me - I'm a 6 or a 7 (so basically 6 1/2) so CLs actually might fit me!

    I would buy them either from net-a-porter.com or www.malleries.com The latter is shops at malleries and IIRC is based in Canada so you would probably need to buy a little more in advance.

    I've had a look on net-a-porter and most of it is the current season, with a lot of their classics thrown in. I'll have a quick search on malleries (who are completely trustworthy by the way and strive to authenticate all designer goods before they go on sale - i have bought with them before).

    Edit: Just found out they're actually called the 'dillon pump' and it's these:

    If I were to get a pair of Louboutains I wouldn't choose the Dillion Flower ones, you can barely notice the red sole amongst all that red and frills! http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/main/...6896&ev19=1:11 - much more fierce

    What are you talking about? You'll often be hard pushed to find them for over £1000 unless it's for certain boots or for custom made shoes.

    those are horrible. although i guess it's just personal taste. I much prefer a lot of the classic styles, which have the benefit of staying in fashion for decades and not just one or two seasons, plus are often much more wearable.

    Horrible! :eek: Pfft you're a guy, guys don't get fashion :p: Though I do have to agree, classic black pumps would be the best bet, you'd get so much more wear out of them.

    Lol she's a girl!! and they are horrible, Circus is something that thankfully won't last forever (thanks Britney!)
    OP could you get something a bit more Iconic Louboutin? They'll be cheaper for you and they'll be able to be worn a lot more and probably noticed a lot more too.
