As many of you know, I turned 30 this year. I know… nuts.
One of the things I promised myself on my birthday was that I would only start investing in classic, timeless pieces that I loved. I figured 30 was as good a time to “grow up” as any. Why not start with the present, right?
Anyone else go through this?
Anyhow, the purse in this post is one of those ^^^ things. It is a classic, timeless, black purse that I know I’ll use for years to come. The dress in this post is also one of those things. I can wear it to work. I can wear it to dinner with friends. It’s not trendy or “of the moment” – it’s a piece that will stand the test of time. Lastly, the beautiful bow heels in this post… they are all of the things that I love wrapped up in one. They are classic, timeless, elegant, and incredibly comfortable as well.
I am obsessed with feminine details. Absolutely obsessed. I adore ruffles, lace, scalloped edges and last but definitely not least, I LOVE bows. That being said, when I saw these stunning, suede, bow heels, I knew that they would be my classic dress shoes for fall and winter. I am so excited to wear them all fall for date nights, and all winter to holiday parties. They are equal parts beautiful and feminine, and I smile every time I see them sitting on the shelf in my closet.
They are by Avec Les Filles…. an amazing brand, but in all honesty a brand that I was unfamiliar with, prior to shopping on Zappos. Thankfully, per usual, Zappos introduced me to them, and now I want every pair of shoes they make. Their brand’s style is, “playfully sophisticated, [with a] French aesthetic. Classic school-girl style is inspired by 70’s Parisian chic and California ease” << Can you say swoon? Avec Les Filles and I are literally a match made in heaven… well, in my classic, timeless, elegant heaven. 🙂 Check out, these gorgeous boots, and these stunning black mules as well. <<< Obsessed doesn’t even begin to describe it.
Sizing notes for Avec Les Filles: Their shoes run absolutely true to size. I usually wear a size 8 and that is what I ordered. One of the questions I got when I posted these beauties on instagram was if the ankle strap was comfortable. In a word, YES! The ankle strap is made out of the softest suede, and the support from the zipper up the back ensures that they don’t dig into your ankle or your heel.
Happy shopping, loves!
