A couple of weeks ago I was flipping through the latest issue of InStyle magazine and read that my beloved ballet flats were making way for pointy toe flats. Whatever, but will admit to having hung on to a couple pairs of (very) pointy Delman flats that seem way too pointy even if, according to the fine editors at InStyle, pointy is back. I'm not going to chuck my round toe ballet flats, but that doesn't mean I can't make room in my closet for something slightly more to the point.
Since I'm not entirely convinced that at my age I should be jumping into a trend with both feet, I've given myself three options at three price points, but all in black.
Entry Level Tester:
I'm a grown up, a grown up who has spent a whole lot of time thinking about shoes. As such, a pair of Elizabeth and James Zolts ($265) with a seam detail on the vamp and a slightly squared off pointy toe looks very grown up to me. As I don't really need another pair of black flats, pointy or otherwise, if I am going to buy, I may as well invest in a pair that's classic with a twist. That's what grown ups do. Right?
