I am definitely a fan of any shoe that will add height. But, sometimes I know I’m going to be on my feet all day or other times V.Ng plans a night out that isn’t heel-friendly. (Um, Dave and Buster’s!!!)
Enter my favorite fun flats.
Flats are an understated style so I want them in bold colors, patterns and textures. (This also makes them better for fashion illustration.)
I try to fill my closet with basics and must-haves; a patent black flat qualifies as both. Find one with a contrast trim, metal accent heel, or cute lining to spice it up. Just because they go with everything doesn’t mean they have to be boring.
I love having unique pieces that say something about my personality – like my ‘le bunny bleu’ flats. I bought them without hesitation because… at first glance that gold icon is familiar. But when you do a double take you realize it’s a silly bunny. Haha – I couldn’t resist!
It’s important to me that my clothes (and my fashion illustrations) are fun! Well, what do you think… am I succeeding?
