Let’s just preface this by saying that I don’t really encourage shopping at Forever21 and I know d’orsay flats aren’t for everyone,* but I had to see these shoes in person after spotting them online.
Utterly and completely smitten.
I’ve actually admired Jenni Kayne’s version for awhile, but thought the style was too trendy to spend a lot of cash on. Sorry, Jenni, $26 is more my speed. The bedazzling is just icing on the sartorial cake.
I wore them on Saturday and, as with any cheap shoe, I was bracing myself for the worst: painful blisters and unsightly dye transfer. Neither of which happened. They stretched out just a tad throughout the day, so I’d recommend sizing down if you’re a half size. Otherwise, your regular size is best. There’s a little piece of elastic sewn into the inside of the heel to prevent it from slipping.
*The misplaced hatred of d’orsay flats, by the way, is ridiculous. Those clunky high top sneakers are much worse.
