Style-ish Steals: Bow Flats

I had a few of you comment on my last lookbook how funny it was to see me in flats and I think a lot of my friends in real life would say the same! I don't wear them that often but I actually do have quite a stock pile of them. Now that I'm a bit older my feet don't hold up in 4 inch heels as well as they used to. I always keep a pair of flats (in a shoe bag) in my handbag now so when I know I'll be walking a lot (especially outside), I'll put on the flats and then change into heels before I get to my destination.

I love flats with embellishments on them especially bows, so thought I'd find some cute ones for this week's Style-ish Steals. A note about flats, my favorite flats that I own are by Louboutin and Tory Burch but I don't feel as strongly about designer flats as I do designer heels. I think a lot of non-designer flats are just as comfortable and well, you really can't beat the price, especially with any of these below!

It's always easy to add a pop of color with flats like these.

I love the lace bow. You don't see that much on shoes.
ASOS LILLY Satin & Lace Bow Ballerina

a little bit of chains...
Kensie Girl Bow-trim peep-toe flat

I'm oddly in love with these loafers.

And a little open toe flat is great for the spring.

Isn't this a pretty color? And I like the zipper accent too.

I have a pair of pink Loubie flats that I wear with everything in the summer. These are very similar in color.

I love the jewel embellishment! And these are now 45% off original price!

My Style-ish UN-Steal I had to have two:

these sparkle sparkle Miu Mius
Miu Miu silver glitter bow detail flats

and of course, the flats of all flats, Lanvin!

  1. I was just thinking about the flats vs. heels thing because I've recently bought a bunch of flats. I prefer heels to give me some height but I think I default to flats out of comfort! These are so cute- loving the navy Topshop and bright pink Lanvin ones!

  2. Amazing ballerina flats.

    P.S.: ♥Please don't forget to join the Schnappy Jewelry giveaway!♥

    Good luck!

  3. Everything is better with a bow on it!

  4. I love the Jessica simpson ones and the Betsey Johnson ones are my fave! x

  5. omg I am just like you in carrying the flats in my purse! Besides the fact that the heels are not really that comfy for walking I don't want to wore out an expensive pair! lol

  6. omg i love jsut about all of those flats! they are adorable!
    and i happened to look at the wedding photo update yesterday...AMAZING! your work keeps getting better and better!!! how i wish i could go back in time and have you photograph my wedding...*sigh*

  7. i toggle between sky-high heels & flats - i just can't decide which ones i like more! i guess it depends on the outfit. cute choices! bows definitely spruce up plain flats!

  8. Love this post Tiffany! I'm usually in flats for most of the week with all the running around I do for work. Pretty flats are always tops on my shopping lists. LOVE the Lanvin and Jeffrey Campbell's, but I have fallen head over heels [haha] for those Miu Miu's!

  9. i've been really into flats lately, too. btw, lanvin flats are super comfy!

  10. I'm all about bows with EVERYTHING! I can't wait until it warms up a bit to rock some shorts, tee's, and adorable bow flats ;)

  11. Bows make me happy. I'm a firm believer that Lanvin and Prada make THE best flats. So comfy!

  12. Love the silver glitter bow flats- I prefer heels for most days but I don't prefer how I feel at the end of a long one wearing them.

  13. Love a little feminine detailing - those Miu Miu flats are too pretty!

    Can't wait to see the photo shoot in Hawaii - it looks absolutely gorgeous!

  14. So cute! Jessica Simpson flats are the best. SOOO comfy. :)

  15. You really have enough room in your bag for heels or flats? Yikes! =0 If I used my BCBG tote I'd have enough room, but it seems so overly huge for everyday use.... (Most days for me right now, anyhow.)

    My Louboutin flats came in today, I'm all smiles. :D They're the cutest! Very comfy, too, can't wait to wear them out. Other than these, my other good flats I got from Aeropostale for under $20. They're starting to give out, but they've been good to me while I've had them.

  16. I bought a pair of studded bow flats for NYC and I loveeeeee them. Best part is, they're super comfy!

  17. Great selection of flats. :).. and gorgeous pics for the Hawaii shoot!!

    xx Love & Aloha.

  18. Ooh those Kensie leopard ones are so saucy!

  19. I've been on the lookout for new flats and I think I'm leaning towards those knotted Free People flats. Thanks for the post!

  20. Thanks for putting all these pretty flats together! i've been looking to buy cute flats. I purchased Dolce Vita Flora flats in 3 colors, can't wait to get them!

  21. Tiffany and all: check out these adorable valentino flats....http://www.shoppingandinfo.com/2010/02/valentino-ruffle-rose-ballerina-flats.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+shoppingandinfo%2FGPgy+%28SHOPPING+and+INFO%29
