Flat shoes. Flats. Women’s Flats. Where do you STAND when it comes to wearing them? Are they a part of your must-have Fashion Trends Accessories for 2018? Speaking for myself, this is where things begin to get tricky for me. It honestly doesn’t matter what I have in my closet (with brand new tags on it and all), I. Still. Never. Feel. Satisfied. I seem to always want what’s in style at the time—and that’s A PROBLEM.
Flat Shoes – Phobia?
You’ll probably think that I’m a simpleton for setting my priorities on something so random, but remember, that I write these fashion blog posts as my true confessions. So, right now, I have a serious obsession for—women’s flats. Yes, the shoes, not to be confused with a New Englander’s version of an apartment.
This is a specific flat shoes thing. I suffer from this recurring shoe fantasy, coming from the point of view as a person who has not yet found her happy in the act of wearing women’s flats. Most of them just strike me as being BLAH. But a chick like me is determined to be hopeful, particularly when the universe’s own celebrity diva (Beyonce) gives comfortable dressy flats their PROPS. Keep reading for the scoop loves…
Flat Shoes – and Beyonce
“I never thought there would be a day when I wouldn’t wear heels. Now that I have a child, I walk around holding her all day, I’m buying loafers and oxfords. I love them, because they’re comfortable,” she says. “And shorter heels too. I’d always thought, ‘The higher the heel, the sexier.’ But now I’m like, ‘These are really sexy.’”
And though flats have done nothing but try and comfort me always, I’m convinced with good reason that there are so many more in this world who can identify with my Women’s Flats Shoes struggles. Let’s use Beyonce as a prime example. As the general public, can we agree that we can totally count on our fingers the number of times that we’ve actually seen Queen Bee photographed in a pair of women’s flats?
Oh but Yaaas… I did hunt down real proof that Beyonce would much prefer to wear flat shoes over heels if she could. “I never thought there would be a day when I wouldn’t wear heels. Now that I have a child, I walk around holding her all day, I’m buying loafers and oxfords. I love them because they’re comfortable,” she says. “And shorter heels too. I’d always thought, ‘The higher the heel, the sexier.’ But now I’m like, ‘These are really sexy.’” And here’s another SHOCKER. Jay-Z actually loves seeing her in them.
Flat Shoes – the Ultimate Pair
Well…My shoe fantasy involves:
- a mix of something as stylish as women’s high heels——but they’ve got to be close enough to the ground to avoid clumsy trip-ups, catastrophic city sidewalk falls, and the fate of unexpected dizzy spells.
- They shouldn’t look like anything that I’ve ever seen in flat shoes before (this means no cheap flats, basic black flats, boring ballet flats, or comfortable dressy flats that I could tell were bought inside of the confines of DSW).
With that being said, guess who went HAM in a Fashion quest to find WHAT’S REALLY GOOD and more in a women’s flat? This Fashion Accessories Blogger. Flats in the Pantone color of the year? Yes. Embellished flats? Yes. Flats that are sort of masked as a heel? Yes. High heel lovers, your about to have a huge Anti Women’s Flats Shoes change-of-heart. You’re going to want to adopt me into your family (and for sure include me in the will). Let’s go.

The D’Orsay is just the greatest example of how simple can be made beautiful.
