Welcome to the Luxury Shoe Club interview series where we introduce you to seriously-styled women with serious shoe closets. In today's interview, we take you to New York City to meet the gorgeous Magdallena Marta (IG: @Magdallena.Marta) - a wife, a mother, a private jeweler and the proud owner of a Christian Louboutin shoe closet we're drooling over...
Tell us a little about yourself and your background. What would someone be most surprised to learn about you?
My name is Magdallena Marta. I am 35 and originally from Poland. I came to the United States over 15 years ago on vacation, fell in love with New York City and never left! I started working in the Diamond District and became a specialist. I now serve private clientele @magdallenaexclusivejewelry.
My shoe size is a 36.5 (US 6/6.5). I love to cook and eat healthy. I'm the proud mother of a 7 year-old beautiful boy named Frank @frankjuniornyc. (Frank was in the Beyoncé music video "Grown Woman") What most people are surprised to learn about me is that my hair length is 45 inches long!!!
When Did You Realize You Love Shoes? Why Are You So Passionate About Them?
When I was a little girl living in Poland, I fell in love with shoes while I was playing in my mom's heels. My mom has always been a class act with such great style & taste. Because of her influence on me, along with my best friend Liana, I absolutely love wearing bright prints and vibrant colors.
Who Is Your Favorite Designer and Why?
My favorite is Christian Louboutin, of course... The way he makes his shoes look on your feet and how they shape a woman's legs is amazing. His innovation to create the Red Bottoms signature look is brilliant and always recognizable. Each pair has it's own story.
I do also love Charlotte Olympia, JIMMY CHOO, Roberto Cavalli, TOM FORD, Brian Atwood & CHANEL. I've made a promise in 2019 to wear more of these from my collection, but my heart will always be with Christian.
How Many Pairs Of Shoes Do You Own? Which Is Your Favorite Pair And Why?
Christina Louboutin... 105 Pairs. Other Designers... 120+ Pairs.
My favorite pair is Christian Louboutin "Makeup Trash", the Limited Edition Silk Peep Toe Lady Peep...
What's Your Perfect Shoe + Clothing Combo? Why?
I love Dolce&Gabbana clothes paired with Christian Louboutin heels. Their clothes are so full of amazing colors and prints. For me, the brighter, the better! I also love how well they fit me and whenever I wear their dresses I always feel more feminine.
Last Question... Shoe Goals: What's The Next Pair Your Lusting For?
Next pair.... Hmmm, that's a hard one! LOL :) It would have to be Christian Louboutin's Alta Firma 100mm. They are an absolutely stunning demonstration of craftsmanship and style - inspired by a man's "black-tie" look. I love the CL logo on the front! These are a show-stopper and not many women will get these at first. They're very feminine and, as we all know, gold goes with everything so you can't go wrong in them!
Thanks Magdallena! It's been a blast getting to know you and your amazing shoe closet! You can follow Magdallena and see more of her fabulous shoes on Instagram at @Magdallena.Marta.
