I am not a fashion blogger and Luxury on the Lips is not a fashion blog but like when I purchased Betty (read about my love here), I really want to share my latest designer purchase with you (though this post is long overdue, I made this purchase about 2 months ago).
I am by no means a very fashionable person. I wear what I want and rarely spend much on clothes (there is better things to spend money on, like make up). I do love fashion though, I have been an avid reader of Vogue for years and love browsing Net-A-Porter which is how I found these babies.
Meet the Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats!
Being a bit of a crazy cat lady I fell in love with these shoes as soon as I saw them. There price put me off though! I had never spent that much on a pair of shoes. I ummed and ahhed for ages as to whether to make the purchase. But then my tax return arrived and there was no way I could stop myself.
I purchased the Kitty Flats in black velvet and oh my, when they arrived I feel even deeper in love. They are absolutely gorgeous. The cat face is stitched in gold and the small heel is also gold. There is also a spider web (which seems to be the Charlotte Olympia logo) in gold on the sole of the shoe.
I love the included polaroid photograph to stick on the side of the box - such a good idea! I also love having dust bags for the shoes - my first pair of shoes with dust bags!
I have only worn my babies since getting them almost 2 months ago. I was too scared that they would get damaged. Sadly the first time I wore them, they tore up the back of my feet. I have a problem with blisters and didn't put anything on my ankles to protect them. It won't stop me from wearing them though!
I was really annoyed to see you can purchase a almost exact copy of the Kitty Flats from Rubi Shoes for less than 30 bucks! I don't understand how they can get away with it. Isn't it breaking copyright law?
Anyway I am extremely pleased to own these babies and I feel like I have started a new addiction. I am currently really desiring a pair of Jimmy Choo Gilbert Leather Pumps. I have a feeling the purchase will happen sooner than later. But in nude or black?
The Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats can be purchased from Net-A-Porter here. The price has decreased by over $150 since I purchased!
What was your first designer shoe purchase?
Or if you haven't purchased a pair, what pair would you want as your first designer shoe purchase?
