There are hundreds of baby brands out there for clothing and there is no denying…
Always go with flats. You’ll feel more powerful if you’re comfortable and not distracted.
Don’t get me wrong, I love a sexy heel; but as I’ve transitioned into a corporate job I wear heels far less than I ever imagined. I find myself slightly bothered whenever I wear heels for a long time, I like to blame the beating basketball took on my feet over the years but I know it’s probably just because I am a baby when it comes to comfort.
I admire the women who wear them all day, every day. But accepted the fact that it’s just not me. I also believe that flats (when chosen right) can make just as much of an impact + statement as a pair of heels. Same goes for sneakers… fashion sneakers are hands down my favorite thing to buy!
Before I am tempted to go into sneakers, let’s get back to the flats… there are so many kinds. While I think ballet flats may be the most common, I have never been big fan of the way they look on me. I’ve gravitated to pointed flats, sometimes with a slight heel, loafers, and recently– mules!
My favorite flats I own (pictured) are sold out, but they are a perfect example of flats that make a statement! I actually got these bad boys at Opitz in Minnesota. Any of my friends know that I am a frequent Opitz shopper because it’s 70% OFF retail and they often get in waves of designer brands – which is where/how I snagged these flats. But Opitz is not for everyone, it is similar to a TJ Maxx, you can’t expect to find something every time you shop, and you have to be willing to look deep into the racks. I can’t resist a killer deal, so it’s a frequent stop for me.
Christian Louboutin Solasofia Hawaii Pointed-Toe / $625 SOLD OUT
As I said, these are sold out. But I’ve gathered my favorite flats for work & fun. Some of which I also own. I’m obsessing over the Nordstrom patterned ones for $119, they are Sam Edelman & they come in multiple (8) colors and patterns. The style reminds me of a Gucci loafer, at a much more reasonable price!
So, are you a flats or heels gal?
TIPS FOR SHOPPING FLATS:
Like I stated above, I am a big bargain shopper. I very rarely pay full price for things unless it’s a must-have item or something that very infrequently goes on sale.
Here are some sites I always check out before I pull the trigger on an item:
