Getting dressed up feels like a novelty these days, and there’s something about the finishing touch of an elegant pair of shoes that makes my heart sing. I like to think of it as practicing for the future, for the sound of heels on hardwood, the joy and movement of dance floors, hitting your stride as you walk into a meeting and the feeling of stepping out into the street of some far away city, breathing in its color and energy and life. Sarah Flint NYC makes footwear for women going places. Sarah’s lush designs include thoughtful details like hidden platforms, anatomical arch support, a wide toe box and a variety of heel heights. This year’s collection has been inspired by the British arts and crafts movements and classic interiors, which feels appropriate as we all cozy up at home. I am swooning over several pairs myself, especially with this gorgeous William Morris Blackthorn brocade.
Here are my favorites for this festive season: 1) Fireside House Shoe in Navy Rosette Suede , 2) William Morris Blackthorn Brocade Bennet Loafers, 3) Perfect Zip Bootie in Olive Crosta, 4) Red Velvet Natalie Flat, 5) Perfect Pump in Gunmetal Lame and 6) the Perfect Riding Boot in Cognac Vachetta
I was delighted to become a brand ambassador for Sarah Flint over the summer and funnily enough footwear has become a huge source of inspiration. I built an entire shoot around the vintage inspired details of The Parker polka dot heel or the investment worthy perfect dress bootie. If you’re shopping for a shoe lover this December or looking to expand your own luxury shoe collection, feel free to click this link to save $50 off your first pair. It’s really important to me to recommend products that I am happy to invest in myself and am authentically a fan of wearing. With that in mind, I wanted to show all the ways I have worn my Sarah Flint shoes in the past and seven style ideas for this next season. Beyond the commute from my desk upstairs to my kitchen on the hunt for tea and cookies, these shoes are a promise to myself of what’s to come.
