Ballet Chic

Miu Miu Ballet flat

When I was in Paris for Fashion Week this Spring, I noticed a few super chic women wearing Miu Miu’s new take on the ballet flat.  With their contrasting ties and rocker-chic buckles, they look like ballerinas might actually wear them . . . if they were in a heavy metal inspired ballet.  By the time I left France, I knew I had to have a pair of my own.

Since then, these shoes have only gained steam, and now they’re available in all kinds of cool options, beyond the simple black.  Now they come in denim and a bunch of colors in suede (including this nude hue, which I’m having trouble resisting), silver, and even studded velvet (in bordeau and black).

I love these shoes so much and can see them with so many outfits this Fall, once I slip my flip flops off for good.  I’d love to have these shoes waiting for me.

You can find them here in black / denim / suede / silver / studded velvet

    Oooh. I love these. I could definitely see you sporting these.

    • Thanks, Meg! My plans for fall definitely involve these shoes.

      I hope you are well. I miss you!

  • Oh my gosh! I’m smitten. This take on the ballet flat is brilliant.
