According to our friend Lilliana Vasquez at Cheap Chicas, embellished flats are one of the hottest trends for fall 2010. And I’m thrilled! From bows and ruffles, to clever flowers crafted of zippers, to gem encrusted medallions, bigger is better this fall!
But what to do with all of those solid colored flats you’ve already got in your closet? No problem! My solution is a collection of easy-to-use shoe clips from Absolutely Audrey. These clips add serious style to any plain shoe. In fact, they are the perfect way to dress up not only flats but also pumps, sling backs or stilettos — and stay right on trend.
Inspired by Audrey Hepburn, a fashion icon of elegant style, Absolutely Audrey is a unique accessories design company that marries the elegance of vintage-inspired shoe clips with the latest fashion trends. The firm offers over 65 incredible styles in rhinestone, enamel, leather, pearl, satin fabric, grosgrain fabric, and more. You can shop for vintage styles, casual pieces, evening accessories and even spectacular bridal clips.
Of all the great styles offered by Absolutely Audrey, I had a hard time narrowing it down to just three must-haves, but I think that my favorite are the Sabrina clips, pictured. Inspired by one of Hepburn’s most famous characters, these add instant elegance to any outfit. The clips are made from grosgrain fabric in black and are accented with delicate rhinestones.Retail $14.99
A beautiful look for evening (or a wedding) are the Audrey clips, inspired by the legendary actress herself. These stylish rhinestone flowers, as shown, have faux pearl “petals” in a light cream hue. Retail $19.99
Finally, a pair of Ellie clips are a fabulous update for fall flats. These multi-colored clips, below, look perfect with everything from jeans to a mini. Retail $19.99
But, I’ve saved the best for last. The price range for the entire line of shoe clips from Absolutely Audrey is a mere $10.00 to $25.00 — infinitely more cost-effective than an entire new collection of shoes. My husband will be so happy!
