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!

I’ve spent quite some time over that past few days, browsing for shoes online. I’m looking for something that you would think would be easy enough to find… Just a simple pair of delicate black flats. I wear a lot of patterned skirts and dresses, so just need something plain and simple for my feet. We are talking about daytime comfort here. Nothing too drab (like a school shoe), but I don’t want a sandal and I don’t want chunky. You get me?
Last year I got these shoes from Aldo…
I also got them the year before and I’d probably get them again, if they still stocked them. They’re obviously a bit run down now from excessive wearing and I don’t think I’m going to get much more wear out of them. I suit a pointed shoe and these were perfect for me.
Now I’m stuck!
These are the best flats I could find that were similar…I’m just not sure. A bit plain Jane.
I really like them in a Cognac though… BUT, that’s not what I’m meant to be looking for now is it?!
Anyway, I’m bored of chatting about flats that I can’t find. Take a look at some of these beauties…
