Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats | TALK

To my dearest:

Winter finally bid us good bye! We can wear something on our feet that’s not winter boots! I have to admit, during the winter, I often times snuggle up in my UGGS or I would  be in ankle or knee high boots. With the weather getting warmer, I’m excited to have more options for my feet. And most of all, I’m excited to once again whip out my Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats!

Ah yes, today, we’ll be talking about the Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats. They’re my absolute favorite pair of flats. I’ve been dreaming about owning a pair since they first came out in 2010 or 2011? I forget… It was quite some time ago. I’ve been to a Charlotte Olympia sale before in New York, but no couldn’t get a classic pair that I liked. It was last summer, during my visit to Hong Kong that I finally got my hands on a pair. I’ve been wearing them nonstop ever since. They’re my absolute go to shoes because they’re oh so comfortable.

Honestly, I had my doubts. I even timed a “break-in” period for it. However, it was love at first slip on for me. They felt like they were destined for me. I was like Cinderella who found her glass slippers. And no I’m not exaggerating. They were THAT comfortable. They were comfortable from day one and have not failed me since. Plus, every single time I wear them, I get stopped on my tracks to ask where they are from! (True story gals!)

The Kitty flats are priced at $495 USD + tax. The classic material is velvet with leather lining and made in Italy. It also has a beautiful gold heel that measures 0.5 inches. I have the classic black pair, because after everything, I decided to stay with a pair of classics. They have many seasonal limited edition ones that are super cute, and often times embellished with jewels or sequins. But, for a pair of flats that cost around $500, I felt going classic would last me longer. But I certainly would love to own another pair with a snazzy design one day!

The price for these pair of flats are quite hefty. That’s why it took me forever to take the plunge although I had eyes on it since forever. But, now I consider them revolutionary to my wardrobe. The quality of these flats are exceptional and it feels luxurious on my feet. The interior leather is extremely soft and smooth! However, they’re still “flats” so if I walk in them for a long time, the balls of my feet do experience capsulitis pain. However, I don’t believe it’s a flaw of the design. They’re still just flats and not sneakers. But, they’re the most ideal pair of flats you would own. And boy, do I love the way the mini heels clack away! It’s like I’m wearing high heels! I strut in these with high confidence! And the kitty is just ohhhh so cute! I have a soft spot for black kitties, because I have a black cat myself. So these flats are a constant reminder of her.

Now everything aside, these flats are at least half a decade old in design. The question is, are they still worth the purchase? Some may argue that it’s way past their time. Some may argue that the kitten design will not be “timeless” if you’re going to be in your 30’s plus. But I see popularity in the Kitty flats still. There’s still many dupes of it and that proves its still popular. I’ve seen bloggers and fashionistas rock them out in all ages! The kitty fever will NOT die! And the comfort they give you is something that is “timeless” and worth the investment. So why second guess yourself? If you’ve loved them for ages and still want them. Jump the bandwagon and get them. I promise you’ll experience a fairy tale like no other. Ok… maybe not. But you’ll feel like Cinderella when you slip them on!

Let me know if you plan on getting them or have them on your wish list! There’s so many colors! What color would you like? Also, let me know if you think they’re timeless like I do!

Thanks for tuning in this week!

    These are really cute. They have been big in the UK for a couple of years now. A really cute take on the classic pump.
