All the Gold and the Guns and the Girls in the World


Fairly recently, I discovered Pour la Victoire, a genius line of shoes that won't break the bank. Every time I take a trip to their showroom overlooking Central Park, I leave wanting every pair they have to offer. Not only are the shoes seriously stylish, they also happen to be comfortable--the prototypes are sent to the NY offices for the girls to try out themselves before production to ensure wearability. The pair in the pictures is made out of the softest, buttery camel leather and you can bet that I'll be wearing them to death this season.

Now they're offering one of my fab readers the chance to win these exact shoes by becoming a fan of PLV on their Facebook Fan Page and then posting a comment to this blog entry with your email address. So:

1. Go to the PLV Facebook page and become a fan. You can also follow them on Twitter if you so desire
AND
2. Enter a comment in this blog entry with your email address.

And that's it! We'll announce the winner shortly. Good luck. xo

  16. You had always seemed devoted to sky-high heels, but I think these are the best shoes I've seen on your blog. Especially in NYC, where walking (comfortably) is the best part.

  57. I share you obsession with PLV but I've yet to add some of their fabulous shoes to my wardrobe. These beauties would find a happy home in my closet (when they are not on my size 6 feet). I've been a fan and follower of PLV for a while, so that part of the entry requirements is a done deal. dena[at]dluxelist[dot]com
