It’s always a good sign when more than two years on, you’re still reaching for the same pieces every morning. The old blazer which has barely aged a day, the slightly tarnished fine silver ring, and the well worn in pair of shoes – novelty, frills and all.
These Charlotte Olympia kitty flats may seem a frivolous purchase to some (especially considering the appalling exchange rate at the time), yet they’ve proven to be the perfect alternative to a simple black ballet flat, albeit a little more high maintenance. Given my preoccupation with wearing heels on an almost daily basis, it’s comforting to know that at the end of the week I can slip my feet into something familiar, something well-travelled, something that feels like home. It’s a little off-beat, a little luxe, and a little unexpected; just the way I like it.
