"A woman with good shoes is never ugly"


In 1957, Coco Chanel created the legend that is the two-tone shoe. The purpose of the black toe was to avoid stains, while the nude leather elongated the legs. Inside the pump Coco placed an elastic to make the shoe more comfortable and give the wearer more freedom of movement.

Some of you might think you must be crazy to pay such a big sum of money for a pair of flats, but I don't, because I basically live in flats. For me, a pair of cap toe Chanel's would be an investment.

For those who are not willing to pay full price, French Sole sells a great alternative .

I'll take them at either price. Though the real ones would have to be a gift--I'm only a broke college student right now. But I can dream.

Classic shoes!
Coco Chanel was so ahead of her time.
I love that all kind of women can wear Chanel, it's a brand that just suits so many types of style and personaility.
