Elie Tahari Gwen Python & Leather Flats and Some Facts About Flats

Posted by writer | Tahari Shoes |

I definitely have passion for ballerina flats. I just can’t omit them when I see a pair of. Now you know I’ll praise to the skies another pair of ballerina shoes and I surely will, lol. Hold on, this time they are Elie Tahari Gwen Python & Purple Leather flats.

First of all, I like the color. It’s not that electric purple as Victoria’s Secret panties, but more of a lilac shade so that it’s not obligatory to hunt for an accessory of the similar color to wear them in a couple.

Second, the buckle detail is a kind of ‘modest sophistication’ – a flattering feature of the right size. It also serves a margin line between leather and python.

Finally, they come with 2 years warranty what really convince they are of high quality.

By the way, I discovered some interesting facts from the history of ballet flats.

Before Brigitte Bardot became an actress, sexy starlet and fashion icon, she was a professional ballerina. Of course she wore Repetto pointes when she danced. When in 1956 she was asked to star in the movie “And God Created Woman”, she asked Rose Repetto to sew a pair of shoes without heels for her legendary dance scene. That was a pair of red ballet flats that Brigitte Bardot fell in love with. Of course, along with the film those shoes won the hearts of female viewers.

A year later, when Audrey Hepburn wore a pair of shoes without heels when she was dancing in “Funny Face”, the ballerina flats finally stepped from the screens on the streets.

Of course, flats will never look posh like heels, but they are still elegant. Moreover, they’re comfortable! Probably that was the reason why you can now see ballet flats in any collections of nearly all eminent fashion designers.
