Fast-forward a couple of seasons, and said Kitty Flats are absolutely smoking hot everywhere, with celebrities and fashionistas tripping over eachother (even without heels!) to get a pair. And of course I've continued to dream about these little feline babies and now I want to get my own pair!
So, what's a girl to do, I called the brand's customer service, who very efficiently helped me find a pair in size 37, and delivered them almost immediately to me, only to find out that they are too big, so they have to go back for a smaller size, which is sold out until next delivery... Argh! I feel my eyes prickling with frustration.
In the meanwhile, guess what, there are plenty of lookalikes in the high street, here's only three of them:
Of course my favourites are still the Charlotte Olympia ones, with their gold embroidery, gold heel and sublime almond eyes on the kitties, but they are a little investment at £465.
If you're on a tighter budget, then you can look at the Boohoo pair, for just £18 or the ones at Missguided, at £23.99... however in my opinion the best ones in the high street are by Blink at ASOS, they even have the gold thread embroidery and are reduced down from £40 to £28 at the moment!
