Wasn’t there a moment in every little girl’s life where she has dreamed of being a ballerina? And with ballet flats as lovely looking as these by Chloé, isn’t there still a place in every woman’s heart for that little girl’s dream? Too bad the reality of that $485 price tag keeps most of us away from making that dream come true.

    Thanks for the great post. I’ve been drooling over those Chloe criss-cross flats for a long time. The Audrey Brooke ones look almost identical and certainly in my price range. Thanks!
