LBS (Little Black Shoes)



Ask any lady what their "wardrobe basics" might include, and I guarantee that 9 out of 10 will list black flats as a necessity. Because duh, they're a necessity! Which is what makes the fact that I haven't really owned a decent pair in what seems like years kind of insane (actually...it may literally have been years.)

How is this possible you ask? No doubt it is due to a combination of both my extreme pickiness and my extreme broke-ness, coupled with the fact that people tend to wear their favorite pair of black flats into the ground instead of selling them to Buffalo Exchange (my life blood these days, 'tis true.)



Anyways, what I'm getting at here is: I found some black flats! And even though they're slightly too big, and were slightly more than I wanted to pay (i.e. over $10--anything that costs more than that should really either be edible or last a lifetime), they've already changed my life for the better. I wore them to the Post Office today to mail some packages, the color of which almost matched my walls.

This is just beautiful, as I said on chictopia. & I know what you mean about not having any black flats. I continuously buy ones with pom poms or cheap ones that disintegrate in a week, I should dedicate my life to finding some as pretty as yours maybe...

& I'd love for you to post my photos up, honestly, I'd be extremely flattered. I meant to blog roll you a while ago, but I will right now this second

I totally understand! I dont own a pair of black flats at the moment (the last one were killed on a heavy night out =)) and i often think `i cannot wear this dress without black flats!`. But where i live we dont have that many good shops where i find shoes which match my criteria `simple - comfy - real leather - not too expensive`. Thats why i asked my friend in the UK to buy me some, they have such a variety of `em there!

I also don't own a pair of black flats! I guess for me they're just not a wardrobe essential. Flat black brogues on the other hand, are my lifeblood!

my all time most used/useful items always end up black. black flats, black leather handbag, black blazer, black high waisted skirt. they go with EVERYTHING. best way to justify expensive purchase.
