I know stores are starting to move into fall merchandise, but it’s hard to think of fall when it’s nearly 90 degrees (as it has been in the Northeast for the past few days), and I’m still mainly wearing my summer shoes.
It was only this weekend, in fact, that I was passing through a DSW and saw this Cassie flats by MIA.
They’re cute, no? And I reminded me that it seems like I’ve seen that style EVERYWHERE.
Colin Stuart makes a patent version that I saw in this month’s Lucky magazine (which I now can’t seem to find anywhere online).
And my favorite version is by Steve Madden, a company I’m not much into in general. But they’ve got a section of their website where you can take a basic shoe design and choose your own color and material options to snaz it up. And on that DIY section, there’s the Eleve, which, for $100 you can choose to have completely flat, with a tiny slice of heel, or with a little kitten heel. You can pick all the customization options, and come up with your own version of this popular style. For example:
A Do It Yourself option is always fun, and a great way to get the perfect shoes to match an outfit without having to move heaven and earth to find them.
