When I went to the London Sole store on Montana in Santa Monica, I went there with the intent of buying simple & classic black flats. I personally don't spend that much on shoes & they're a little pricier than I had hoped, but I knew that the leather was great quality plus they're adjustable - so if they do stretch out, you can tighten them. Also, I'm pretty sure classic ballet flats are here to stay.
But as I browsed through the store, the hundreds of different flats literally overwhelmed me; it was definitely a case of too many choices. Rye Bread & I were drawn to these amazing patent leather crocodile oxfords. Classic black flats? Definitely not. Totally awesome? Totes. I went back & forth on them for awhile mainly because I was like, "Wtf do I wear with these? Also, am I even COOL enough to pull them off?" You know who could pull them off? Janelle Monae. I'm certainly not as cool as her, but why not, it'll force me to act a little cooler, lol.
So instead, I paired a wife-beater (which I cut myself) with Rye Bread's tuxedo pants & rolled them up. Where would I wear this? Maybe to a cool bar or something? I dunno...I used the word "cool" in this post too many times. Cool.
I'm thinking these would go really well with a floral skirt or a flirty dress...you know what that means...shopping time!
