Covet : J. Crew Ballet Flats


Have you visited J. Crew's Ballet Boutique? It's like a veritable candy store for lovers of ballet flats! Just look at all these delicious colors, stylish textures and charming patterns. I admit I like to go there and ogle the pretties. And if you hover over the shoes, they like dance for you. It's thoroughly enchanting. I'm totally coveting the Lula Glitter style and can't decide between the two colors. I have two pairs of Cece ballet flats and can attest to their chicness, comfort and quality. Read about how they're made in Tuscany, Italy hereBeing a New Yorker, I walk alot and practically live in flats this time of year. Are you a fan of ballet flats?

It's been awhile since I've posted for two days in a row. I hope to get back to a more regular blogging routine soon. I'm feeling so much more like my old self for the most part these days. I finished up my healing Chinese herbal medicine routine last week and my doctor now has me on a restorative rotation. Thankfully this one doesn't smell/taste of cesspool and doesn't require me to be on a restricted diet. That was not fun. I hope you're all having a splendid week. I bet everyone in the U.S. is looking forward to the long weekend. I'll be back next week with the winner of the Shabby Apple gift card giveaway. It ends Sunday if you'd like to enter.

J. Crew's flats are to die for! I always LOVE looking at them and drooling over them, but I can never actually fork over the price.

Twice in one week! It's so good you are feeling better. Those herbs are gross! I thought I was going to die the first time I had them {and I got the real thing that you have to boil down and reduce the liquid to drink so everything in my apartment smelled too}. I feel you with the restricted diet. I have been on a really annoying one for over a year now and no one can figure out how to help me - regular doctor, chinese doctor {2 of them, since the first one threw up his hands and sent me to another}, dr google has been the most helpful sadly. In a few weeks I'm going to a "witch doctor" on the NY/CT border. I'll let you know if she's helpful in case you get sick again. She was able to help someone I know so I'm hopeful.

I have the striped ballet flats with the bows and they are nice but a bit stiff still. I like the glitter and the purple and orange color blocked but one is all that my bank account wants to pay for right now - and J. Crew sales don't usually include things I want. It would be great if some of these things just appeared in my closet!

I am having a really hard time with the constantly crying lead in FK and I don't feel bad for her so it's even worse. I want to shake her - or the terrible writers. Usually when I really like a drama I will watch it a lot faster than 3/4 of an episode a week. :) I think after this I will watch K2H or there's a Chinese one about office workers which seemed like it might be interesting and I heard Kimchi Family was good but haven't watched it yet. I haven't yet seen a Japanese drama, maybe someday?

Okay that was close to a novella - Have a great long weekend!!!

I looooove J. Crew's flats. They pretty much have a flat for every style. My only gripe is that, for me, they're a tad uncomfortable (I'm really picky about comfort).

Also, I'm glad to hear you're feeling a bit better!

I love J.Crew and J. Crew's flats are so lovely and stylish.
Great colors.

Ashley K said...

I adore their ballet flats collection. I love all the teals and mint color but haven't bought any yet. I just can't decide on which one I would like the best and wear most often.

Bravoe Runway said...

I don't own one pair of ballet flats. These are all so pretty, and there's a colour and material that would make anyone happy! I also don't own anything from j.crew. To answer your question, I store all of my bags stuffed with tissue in their sleeper bags, away from heat and sunlight in my 2 closets in my condo. Thank god I don't have to share my closet.

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

I love them all! I really have been trying to debate which ones to buy for a while now. That's how hard the choice is! :) xoxo

I hope you feel better soon. It's awful being sick for such a long time.

I'm crazy about ballet flats. Just as well that J Crew now offers free shipping to the UK. Yay!

Julie (Little Pink Rain Boots) said...

Gorgeous, is it wrong I want them all? I am really in love with the ones with the stripes and bow and the pair with anchors.

Hi sweetie Rowena! Oh my gosh, these flats are adorable!! I kind of have a feeling I may not be able to resist illustrating a few of my favorites sometime in the future! The glitters are adorable! I love the black and white stripes too! They make it very difficult to make a decision. So glad you're now on restorative treatment ... what an ordeal this has been for you. Getting ready to head out of town in the morning for the long holiday weekend ... hope you have a lovely one yourself, sweets! xo

I'm so glad you're feeling better Rowena! And also have been so curious about the J Crew flats. I've been looking at those lula glitter flats too and wondering how they fit. The J Crew by my house doesn't sell shoes so I'll have to find one that does and try them on. I used to wear their flats years ago and loved them.

Have a great weekend!

Emily said...

Wow, you're right, it's like a visual candy store! They're totally adorable. My favorite ones are the studded leather. I think I'd get them in black, but the nude is gorgeous as well. I'm glad to hear you're recovering!

May the force be with you.

Nelah said...

Never thought I would want many ballet flats until I saw this post. From a quick glance, I know I want at least 10!! I want to go to J.Crew right now.

Deborah said...

Wow! What beautiful palette!

Andrea said...

OH MY!!! What have you done?! These ballet flats are just PERFECT! I want every single one in my "shoe closet" (if I had one of course, haha!).
They all fit in my taste and my outfits! :( And I never forgot your colorful sweaters post so I believe we are in the same page about how happy we would be if we had these many (and beautiful) shoes. ^____^

Thanks once again for sharing this and hope you have a sweet week,
Andrea***

ShyScout said...

Ballet flat heaven! Oh my goodness!! I am a major fan. All of the color and styles are so beautiful. Both the glitter pairs are lovely for different reasons but I was instantly drawn to the lighter colored ones. Which ever you pick will be a good choice though.

So glad you are feeling close to your old self :]

Clara Turbay said...

Interesting ideas and style concepts!

classiq said...

I always seem to need yet another pair of ballet flats. I think my next pair will be silver or nude. :)
