On the brighter side... two things: (1) Pippa and Kate Middleton are probably at the top of my list of style icons, and (2) a pair of red flats has been on my want list for months now! So seeing this page in the People StyleWatch February issue had me swooning.
What didn't have me swooning... was the price! Pippa is wearing London Sole's which are around $170... Out of my price range. And the magazine suggests a similar pair for a more reasonable $42, but even that is a little too much for a pair of flats that don't match with absolutely anything...
BUT! I had a DSW gift card from Christmas time, so I had to take advantage of that. I found an even cheaper pair at DSW, and these look so much better to me.
CL by Laundry "Get Down" flat from DSW, size 8.
It's not an exact replica of Pippa's flats, but I think I love them more, especially with the contrast stitching. They look very classic. As for sizing, I haven't worn them out just yet, but they seem to fit true to size. I'm happy!
Also... is anyone else excited for the Jason Wu for Target release tomorrow? I've never been excited about the designer brands at Target until now, because there is just one piece that I must have from this collection! My store here doesn't carry the special designer lines, so I have to cross my fingers and hope it's not crazy on the Target website tomorrow.
More on this tomorrow!
Have a great weekend everyone!
