Kate Middleton spent less time waiting for William and auditioning wedding dress designers than I spent searching, fitting and finally purchasing new ballerina flats shoes to replace my 4 year old beloved gold Privos.
I wanted plain BLACK leather (but not patent) ballerinas and must have tried on every pair that existed in the GTA and then NYC for the past 12 months. With much pressure from rorygilmore (so embarrassed that I was constantly wearing well worn shoes), I finally settled on the Tory Revas. They may be passe, plain, ubiquitous or uninspired but to me they are perfect and the epitome of 'effortless chic'. (Well, that's what shesaid.)
Having just watched 'Love Loss and What I Wore', rorygilmore and I laughed when we asked each other 'Is it black or blue?', never questioning that they were anything but black. But I finally read the shoebox, where the colour is clearly marked as tory navy. Maybe tory navy is the new black.
