Ballet Flats ... Hepburn Style.





I know, I know.  When stereotyping, us retro gals like to wear the peep toes, wedges and heels.  But sometimes, perhaps when grocery shopping, or in our down time ... or perhaps when wear some denims; there is nothing like a ballet flat.  We came across the  Ja-Vie brand and fell in love. They look good and they are comfortable.  Granted they are not suede, but they are made of new materials that reflect comfort, style and longevity.  Inspired by Hepburn.  The ballet flats became iconic after Audrey Hepburn's style in Funny Face (1957) (BD) [Blu-ray] in 1957 shined the spotlight on her black suede slip-on loafers (designed by Salvatore Ferragamo); flats soon became her signature shoe. The shoes represented the influence of beatnik styles on pop culture. “Flats became the purview of the alternative youth culture, which prided itself on rejecting the styles of the privileged mainsteam,” writes Bergstein. The fresh-faced actress originally rejected the white socks director Stanley Donen wanted her to wear with the shoes during the film’s famous dance sequence. After she saw the movie for the first time, she sent him a note that read, “You were right about the socks. Love, Audrey.”  (Source:  RD.com)
Instead of going to work in sneakers; you can wear the Ja-Vie's from home to office. Unless you like wearing the sneakers : )   We love these shoes because they are  versatile; comfy with arch and ball support, flexible with their jelly shell, and totally washable, yet a beautiful shoe.
