Be Sharp, See Flats

For a self-declared high heel junkie, I've somehow amassed quite the collection of flats.  I was cleaning out my closet recently (read: trying on everything I own in one of those 'I-have-nothing-to-wear' panics) and realized that I've been completely neglecting some of my shoe babies.  My new goal is to give my flats as much love as I do my pumps...they can be very chic and fashion forward in their own special way.

Flats, Chanel

I got these amazing Chanel flats second hand awhile back...as you can see I wore them down pretty badly!  It has been too long since these gems were in my rotation, the back of the closet is no place for Chanel!

Flats, Ferragamo

I scooped up these vintage babies at Second Time Around when I used to work there.  They were just too cute to pass up, but I don't have a lot of lavender in my wardrobe so they don't get the attention they deserve.   I'm picturing them for spring with high waisted black shorts and a 50s style cardi!

Flats, Prada
These Pradas are my pride and joy!  As we all know, I love a little sparkle- and these are like disco balls on my feet.  I adored these so much that I bought another pair in bronze.  However, they're the teensiest bit too tight...here's hoping my feet shrink.

And finally...my brand new purchase!

Flats, Reed Krakoff
I bought these on super-sale at Saks yesterday.  They're by Reed Krakoff, the head designer for Coach.  I'm not a fan of most Coach products, but Krakoff's own spinoff line has been genius!  I'm dying for one of his bags...but until I raise the $6000 I need to own one these flats will have to suffice.  The simple black matte/patent leather combo evokes Audrey Hepburn, but the slightly off-center bows give them a funky, modern spin.  

Tomorrow I'm going to aim to create an outfit around one of these pairs!

  1. Have you checked out the Gryson bag line? Joy Gryson used to design for Coach & Calvin Klein, but her main claim to fame was acting as the Accessories Director of Design & Development for Marc Jacobs. She's come out with her own line of bags, and lemme tell you, these pics do NOT do the pieces any justice. A-MAAAA-ZINGGGG!
