K/R Kitty Flats (waving at Vicki)

http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/ch.....e_olympia_'cat_face'_slipper:575383&cm_pla=shoes:women:flats&cm_ven=Google_Product_Ads&mr:referralID=3da2e3b5-4339-11e3-bae4-001b2166c2c0 I had been all agog over the Charlotte Olympia cat flats when they first came out. 

But not even I am willing to spend $700 on cat flats. Knock offs surfaced, but always at a poor quality level. 

Enter these Vanelis, which Zappos says are leather lined (though it does not say on the actual shoe what they are made of). 

You guys know I always feel stumpy in flats, but these might be a more fashionable alternative to my Crocs when I need a break from heels. 

What do you think? Cat goggles?

    I love them :)

    OMG, they look adorable on you. Seriously. And I think the way the vamp is cut, with those cat ears, makes them look non-stumpifying.

  • AviaMariah replied 7 years ago

    Keep!  They are so cute!  And I think you can totally get away with adding some cute without getting too cutesie.

    I love them!  Are they comfy?

  • rae replied 7 years ago

    Diana, I might need to get an arch support, but they are otherwise sturdy and comfy and don't pinch my toes at all. Even the freakishly long ones. The little heel helps a lot, similar to my galaxy oxfords.

  • Astrid replied 7 years ago

    Yes, definitely keep!

  • nancylee replied 7 years ago

    LOVE!  And I will enjoy them vicariously through you.  :)

  • karymk replied 7 years ago

    Those look just like the Charlotte Olympia! Keep of course!

  • Kristin L replied 7 years ago

    I like them! How do they feel?

  • Marmee replied 7 years ago

    So cute.  I say if they're comfortable you should go for it!

  • replied 7 years ago

    those are some cute and expensive flats!

  • Suz replied 7 years ago

    Absolutely adorable!! I want a pair. But will they stay on me? That is the question. Probably not, is the answer. 

  • karymk replied 7 years ago

    Hi Rae, I want to show you my new Paul and Joe sweater: I'm in on the kitty moment! Why do we love this so?

  • rae replied 7 years ago

    Karymk, that is adorable! I love how it totally embraces its own kitsch as a Hot Pink Kitty Sweater. 

  • Karie replied 7 years ago

    Oh I love them - but then I love flats. Keep! They look fantastic and fun.

  • Thistle replied 7 years ago

    Love those shoes for you! How comfy are they? Not all flats are comfy, sadly. :(

  • Janet replied 7 years ago

    I think they're great on you! If they pass the comfort test, I say keep!

  • Marley replied 7 years ago

    Meow!  (That's "Yes" in cat-speak.)

  • Joy replied 7 years ago

    Big thumbs up! These are sassy rather than too sweet.

  • Beth Ann replied 7 years ago

    Isn't the only YLF rule to have fun with fashion?

  • catgirl replied 7 years ago

    Those are cute, although my eye does need to get used to you in flats like this! 

  • Vicki replied 7 years ago

    I love them, you cute Catmeister.

    My friend showed me these for pup lovers at C Wonder at Fashion Island.

  • Angie replied 7 years ago

    How can you not keep these, Rae. My word. That's a YLF order. 

  • Amy replied 7 years ago

    They are so darned cute! Keep them :)
