I’ll be honest: when I’m buying flats, I’ll generally look to the budget brands for something that will fit my needs, but not cost too much. I think the most expensive flats I ever bought were the Boden jewelled pumps, which I got on sale for around £50 – and even that seemed like a lot of money to me for flat shoes, although it would be relatively cheap for a pair of heels. Funny how that works, huh?
That doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a good pair of designer flats when I see them, though: if I WAS going to be dropping a lot of cash on flat shoes, these are the ones I’d be buying.
From the top…
I almost squealed in delight when I saw these pointed flats, with their polka dot upper and giant bow: I hardly ever want to squeal over shoes with less than a 4″ heel, so that tells you how much I love these ones!
From one of my favourite shoe brands, these satin flats also come in pink, which is also amazing.
I know a lot of people are sick to death of Valentino’s Rockstuds, in all of their various iterations, but I still love them, and I really like this nude flat version: these are just so much dressier than most pairs of flats, and will instantly add a bit of polish to whatever you wear with them.
Aruna Seth are best known for their bridal shoes, and these peep toe flats definitely have a bridal feel to them. The pale pink satin, however, will work for other special occasions too, and will blend easily with most colours: isn’t it refreshing to find a glamorous evening shoe that doesn’t have a stiletto heel?
