Wander down Wall Street and you’re sure to see some powerful women wearing their Christian Laboutin status symbol shoes. You’ll recognize them from the Chinese red soles–red being a very powerful feng shui color symbolizing wealth. I’m sure now that you know about them, you’ll notice this signature sole shoe appearing in TV and film on movie stars as well. Which reminds me…I saw a film on TV the other day where a character was using bright red nail polish to paint the soles of her shoes red to mimic this look on the cheap! It was hilarious. Not sure if it works or not. Someone please try it and let me know! I don’t have a need for heels as I am on an island in Maine where LL Bean is the fashion king. Ayup.
