This is for all you shoppers out there! After getting my first pairs of Jimmy Choos last year, I said that I would hold off until 2017 to get any more designer shoes. Well, I held out until Black Friday thanks to a friend of a friend of mine who knew about these Charlotte Olympia Mid Century Glitter Kitty Flats going on sale for 50% off at The Room in The Bay! I LOVE cats and in addition to the Jimmy Choos, I have always wanted a pair of these infamous kitty shoes, but $675 for whimsical kitty shoes just felt like a touch too much for me so when they went on sale INMYSIZE I pretty much walked them home!
Charlotte Olympia does a lot of rounded toes and while I should probably be wearing a rounded toe for the health of my feet (I have wide feet), I just love the daintiness of a pointed toe. I loved the little pointy cat ears and the cosmic spray of glitter with the metallic purple piping all along the edges of the shoes. Someone commented that the shoes matched my oilslick hair and I couldn't deny that maybe subconsciously that was the reason for choosing such an outlandish texture. I have lost a few glitter pieces, but not as many as I would have thought! They are VERY comfortable to wear and I have been wearing them at my conservative work environment with pants or black dresses. It's almost like the classic black shoe, but the glitter version since it's not quite as party looking as a silver or gold glitter.
Honestly, I am just so happy that there are not-too-cheesy designer cat shoes out there. Now, I just need someone to make molecular-themed shoes and I am set!
I am pretty sure these shoes are sold out now, but there are MANY MANY more kitty designs available!
