Keva Meets Christian... Louboutin that is!

Exclusive Spring Shopping Event with Mr. Louboutin

It’s not everyday that you’re invited to share champagne and macaroons with one of your favorite designers. Yesterday, however, I did just that – and headed to Nordstrom Green Hills (in super fan fashion) to meet the man himself; Christian Louboutin. I gratefully dedicated the day to be a part of history and welcome the iconic designer to Nashville for the first time.

First things first: A girl is nothing without her personal shopper for this caliber of event. Seriously… Who goes to meet the godfather of red soles without shopping his latest collection?! As Tennessee weather has been quite unpredictable, I opted to wear an all black maxi and blazer – paired with Christian Louboutin “Mayerling” pumps of course. I walked in with a Balenciaga crossbody and walked out spring ready, with a new Christian Louboutin Cabata Tote in the color "Snow". I’ve reviewed the bag and dished the specs below for your convenience.

I shamelessly admit I arrived at 10:00 a.m. and waited 5 hours in line to be the 3rd lady to shake my shoe-idol’s hand. And boy did being 3rd in line hold its advantages. Mr. Louboutin personally sang me a song during our meet & greet and personalized the detachable pouch of my tote! Christian is an amazing character with real vivacity and passion for life.

He is incredibly charming, inspiring, and his energy is simply infectious! This gave me all the more reason (as if I needed any more) to love the brand that he has built through his undisputed talent. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience – and I am not lying when I say I have never fangirled so hard in my entire life :)

Fashion designer Christian Louboutin has developed an international following for his distinctive red-soled footwear.
