So, apparently flats are back. Great news for people like myself who constantly have trouble finding nice looking shoes. There’s definitely a bit more choice in the stores at the moment, but the trouble I’m having is that I’m constantly attracted to suede shoes, which really don’t do well when it rains. Even with a protector spray, I find that they damage a lot more easily… Perhaps I just need to be a bit less fussy and just deal with a few marks here and there. Probably.
I have to be careful when it comes to the style of shoes, because I don’t have very shapely legs and a rounded front just makes my legs look tree trunk esk (stumpy). Luckily I’m often drawn to a more pointed loafer and these can be found in abundance at the moment in all sorts of colours and patterns. Below are a few of my favourite shoes in the stores right now. I love, love, love Charlotte Olympia’s Sleeping Kitty slippers, but ouch that’s quite some price to pay!
