I only went into TK Maxx to buy a new bed for my dog, I swear. If there’s a way to enter that store and NOT leave with a new pair of shoes, however, well, I haven’t worked out what it is yet, which is why by the time I reached the checkout I found myself clutching these little studded ballet flats by Miss KG. Whoops.
In my defence, I’ve been on the lookout for pointed gold flats for a while now, and as I’ve mentioned in the past, when I see a pair, I tend to just grab them, knowing that even if I don’t need them now, I’ll definitely be needing them sometime soon. These ones obviously aren’t gold, but the metallic upper is close enough, and I think the shade will be just as versatile. It was the oversized, studded bows which really won me over, though: it’s not often that I find a pair of flats I LOVE, as opposed to a pair I just think will be useful, so I figured it would be a shame to leave them behind – especially when they were just £17.
As is always the case with TK Maxx, you have to hunt to find your size, and resign yourself to the fact that you won’t always be successful. In this case, although I scoured every shelf in the shoe section (People often put shoes back in the wrong spot, so it’s worth checking even the sections that aren’t your size) I could only find two pairs of these, one size 7 and one size 3. I normally wear a 4, but as luck would have it, the size 3 turned out to be a decent fit, so home they came!
If you fancy a pair of your own, I managed to find them on the TK Maxx website, too, and they’re a pound cheaper there than I paid in store, for some reason, although you will also have to pay extra for shipping.
