Jeweled Flats, My Non-Basic Basic

Do you have staple pieces in your wardrobe that you wear constantly and can't live without, pieces that rarely make some fashion expert's "X, Y or Z pieces every woman needs in her wardrobe" list? Jeweled flats are one such staple for me. Basic black flats are just fine, but sparkly embellishments on the toe make a casual shoe much more special. Whether the jeweled flats are by Miu Miu or a lower-end brand, I'm drawn to them like a magpie to treasure. Not only are they comfortable and walkable, they add a dressy touch to even the simplest of outfits. Slip on a pair with skinny jeans, a plain tee, a blazer and scarf and you'll see what I mean.

Of course, if you're on a tight budget and can't afford to buy a pair of sparkly flats, you could always opt for simple ones like those by Yosi Samra and add some sparkly shoe clips.

Are you a fan of jeweled flats? What are some of your non-basic basics?


  1. Those flats are so pretty! I love the Vera Wang and the 2nd MJ ones :) My flats are mostly plain; the closest I have to embellished flats is the pair with cat eyes, but I've worn them so much that they're falling apart.

  2. Oh I love that last pair! Actually, they're a knock-off of a Miu Miu pair. I loved the MM ones, but not the price tag...I'll have to check out that Browns pair now!

  3. Megan, I bought the Browns pair for that very reason--loved the Miu Miu ones, couldn't justify the price tag lol. They're really pretty!

  4. I love flat shoes! I shouldn't, cause I'm a tiny petite girl, but what can I do if I love the comfort of flats!
