Zooks! I fell asleep early last night and totally forgot to have a freshly-baked Daily Kick ready for your early-morning perusal. Bad Plumcake! Wicked Plumcake!
Witness the “Welsh” print flat, available up to a size 13.
I dig these in a big way. Are they The Most Exciting Shooz Evar!!11!? no, they’re just simple polished flats, BUT I prefer them to the Ferragamo slippers they so closely emulate because French Sole makes flats that actually fit to your feet. They DO tend to run wide so if you’ve got banana feets, take that into consideration.
What I love about this particular look is that they’re SO Old Lady with Money (seriously, sit in the Trustee’s Circle of any cultural event and there will be nothing but wall-to-wall octogenarians dripping in diamonds, blue rinse and these flats) but they’re dead easy for those of us who DON’T remember the day “that poor Lindbergh baby went missing.”
Some of the great style icons of the past 50 years earned their reputation by appropriating their mothers’ or grandmothers’ pieces (think Edie S.) and wearing them in new, young ways. It lent them a feel of old money luxe while still being completely casual and new. It worked then and it works now, so why not give it a try?
Bonus points for anyone who gets why this Daily Kick is called what it is.
