SHOPPING LIST:: Alexa Chung + 3 strap flats

7 Apr

I’ve fallen…….. hard.
Today I fell for a pair of shoes that does not meet any of my usual criteria – they’re not black, towering, ankle height, or boots! In fact they’re none of the above. But somehow I discovered a gaping hole in my closet that can only be filled by red, 3-strap, flats. And then Alexa Chung went and sealed the deal (hers are Vivienne Westwood). Turns out all of my summer looks are not complete without a pair of red buckled flats.
So far I’ve only found one viable option, the Backpack flats by Jeffrey Campbell but they’re a little more than I wanted to pay. Tracy Reese has a great version too but they only come in black, not really what I wanted but they are on sale. So should I go with the black for half the price? They did look fantastic on Alexa. 
Which do you prefer – red or black?
My boyfriend doesn’t like them, but that is to be expected. They are pretty man repellant. Although my best friend doesn’t like them either, so is it just me?

    They're lovely. I like the red more and I reckon red is a neutral so they will go with lots of stuff.

    They are both cute, but I'd go with red since you have so much black. Plus, it's a fun pop of color!
