fancy flats


Last night a friend's birthday party with a "dress to impress but in a casual way" dress code had me trying on at least a dozen outfits. And I still got it wrong! This morning I came across this image and it made me think that next time I'll dress around a pair of fancy flats, like the Valentino pair, above. (I also LOVE this sandal version.) These flashy shoes bridge the casual-impressive gap with their easy-breezy flatness and dazzling embellishment. And wearing them means I can keep the rest of my outfit pretty simple. I'm thinking one of these head-turners from Guiseppe Zanotti, Tabitha Simmons, or J.Crew could pull of the trick!

I'm a huge fan of flats -- for both day and night. The right pair looks perfectly chic for cocktail hour.

Speaking of missing the mark...I am headed to a lobster bake in a few weeks. What do you suggest? We live on the East Coast so it could be chilly.

The bag is by Chloe (circa 2010). So good!
