For many years, I’ve been anti-flats, especially the closed ones. I can’t really recall why I disliked them so much, I guess they just never really spoke to me. However, now that I’ve been dipping my toes in the fashion world for a few years, I grew to like flats. As long as they look so cute like this one from Carven. Isn’t it adorable? I love the slingback bow, it’s such a cute detail. Would I spend $540 on a pair of cute flats though? Well, that’s a complete different story.
