Ugh. And this time we mean it. We're falling hard, and it's for a shoe. These Christian Louboutin "Chelita" booties are pretty much the epitome of our ideal fall style: laid back, yet easily dressed up; playfully sophisticated; and totally transitional. Just in at Barneys, the sleek cowgirl-takes-on-downtown-Manhattan kicks come with that signature red sole, but they'll cost you. At a cool $1,795, the stunning, buckled, silver-and-black killers may be out of our price range (for now), but that doesn't mean we won't spend these next few warmer months dreaming (and saving).
Christian Louboutin Chelita booties, $1,795, available at Barneys, 660 Madison Avenue (at 60th Street); 212-826-8900.
