I like Big Bows...

You know that I love sharing my new shoe purchases with you all and you're probably used to seeing my 4 inch stilettos but had to show off these little bow flats as they deserved a post of their own!

I found these at the Prada store when I was in New York last month.  I didn't think I had a chance of finding them in my size as I had seen them first at Saks but the size they had was a half size too big.  When I asked for them at the Prada store I got the "oh, that's quite small, I don't think we have that size, let me go check."  Never a good sign when the sales person already tells you that they don't have that size.  But, luck was on my side and he brought out my coveted size 5!

The big bows are too cute aren't they?  (Oh and do you like our new living room rug?)

I love that the bows are bigger than the front of my feet.  I've been wearing these with everything.  They have become my replacements for my Tory Burch Revas.  Although I own 3 paris of Revas, they all have become so worn down with all of the walking that I've been doing in them so I was due for a new pair of flats.  (I wear them whenever I travel and when I travel I do a lot of walking.) But I do have to say that the Revas are more comfortable than these flats.  These ones kind of pinch on the side but nothing too bad, I can still wear them for hours and not complain about my feet hurting.

I can only find them online at Neiman Marcus right now, but like I said, I saw them at Saks too.  Saks had a pretty blush/nude color too but they were out of my size.  I hope they put them online soon as I'll probably be ordering that color too!

There are lots of cute bow flats out there, here are some of my picks!

    I got a pair of bow flats over the weekend from the Kohl's Simply Vera line that were on clearance for $11.99! Can't wait to wear them once it's not 116 degrees outside!

  7. Oh they're lovely! Totally remind me of my Valentino patent big bow flats - I wear them way too rarely.
    But you can't have enough bow flats, in my opinion... ;)

  9. I love bow flats :) I have a few pairs myself, but those Prada ones are to die for! Do they run the same as their heels, or do they run big?

  17. Those are adorable. Love the bow. I wish I could wear flats. I think I must be a freak of nature because my feet hurt if I wear flats, not heels like most normal people. So sad :(

  18. Love the shoes, but where is the rug from?! I have been searching for a new rug for three months and I love the design of that one (would love to see more from the same designer/store).

    Thanks!

  20. L.A. Daze - true to size.

    Jennifer - the one on 5th Ave.

    Beautifully Invisible - no, you're not a freak of nature, I'm the same way! I had to train my feet to wear flats and I still get foot cramps when i wear flats but not in 4 inch heels!

    Melissa - It's from The Rug Market. I got mine on Ideeli. I found it online here too. http://www.outdoorrugsonly.com/detail.asp?id=8279&sku=RUGM-25288&mode=ADD&prc=S000

    Although it says that this one is an outdoor rug and I don't think mine is but the design is the same.

  32. I tried these shoes on, and I felt like they were going to slip off my feet because the back felt too low. Do you have that problem with these at all?

  33. @Shar Hi Shar! Nope not at all. They fit perfect still.
