Monica Performs In $1,295 Christian Louboutin Pitou Cutout Suede/Python Platform

8th Annual Jazz In The Gardens

R&B singer Monica recently performed at the 8th Annual Jazz in The Gardens in Miami. As always, the RCA recording artist ripped the stage performing some of her chart-topping hits. When Monica performs, she demands the stage and knows how to connect with the crowd. What I like best about Monica is her pleasing personality and humbleness. During her set, Monica looked cute in a pink blazer and white pants paired with $1,295 Christian Louboutin Pitou Cutout Suede/Python Platform. Theses color-blocked peep-toe pumps are covered in suede with a python heel and platform, side cutouts, stretch gore insets at side ankle, padded leather insole & lining, and the brand’s signature red leather outsole.

Currently Obsessed With JoyRich ‘Python Madness’ Collection

photo-179-768x1024

I am obsessed with fashion brand Joyrich’s Python Madness Collection. The collection feature NYC JoyRich Python Pu Cap which comes in Turquoise and Pink and the Wild Life Motor Jackets which comes in three different colors: Turquoise, Pink, and Black. The classic style motor jacket features gold zippers and button and the back is embedded with gold studs reading “RICH”. I wouldn’t mine wearing these pieces on a nice spring day. What I like best about these caps and jackets are the bright colors and the gold studs.
