A couple of people have pointed out the striking similarity between the antique embroidered cushion in my Marie Antoinette-inspired boudoir and Monsieur Louboutin’s fabulous yellow embroidered shoes. Surely such beautiful shoes should have an equally beautiful cushion on which to rest when not in use… I am looking forward to my complimentary pair from Maison Louboutin.
