Fun icons, colors and patterns keep you chic and comfy all day.

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?
