The Elusive Perfect Flat Has Landed
The perfect flat...it works as well with skirts as with skinny jeans, fits like a dream, and - unlike the dreamy Lanvin flat of all flats - is actually affordable. Dare we even wonder if such a thing exists?
After years of watching their customers search for the Holy Grail to no avail, Barefoot Tess decided to, well, step in with their 2008 Private Label Collection, a collaboration with cult-fave Matt Bernson.
After a gazillion rounds of testing, they created two fabu flats for girls sizes 7 through 15: the Tess Classic Scrunch - a snug-fitting everyday go-to shoe in a variety of yummy colors such as Blueberry, Black (of course), and an ultra-chic Rum (caramel/nude) - and the Tess Classic Flat, which The Grand Mademoiselle Shoe Blog praises for its "cheeky crinkle patent leather upper, gently gathered elastic heel, and perfectly shaped toe (neither too pointy, nor too round) ensure that the Classic is poised to live up to its name, securing a spot in the Flat Hall of Fame."
And all for a mere $165 a pair at BarefootTess.com!
