flatforms

flatforms: office (sale, now sold out)

Feel free to file this post under filler rather than snippets but I thought I'd just show you some close ups of my flatforms. I get alot of comments about them! Plus its all I have, Spent the day loading my boxes onto a moving van! Flatforms are basically like as the name suggests flat platform shows. Im shorter than I'd like to be and (I know this sounds weird) don't like the way my feet look in flat shoes. I feel so short and stumpy when I don't wear heels or a wedge!

I like flatforms because the give me the extra inch and a bit I like without being too high. I personally find them easy to walk in, although its quite odd at first being so far off the ground but still have flat feet! My Office Willow Paige's are half real leather and half suede which I think adds a lovely dimension to the shoe. I paid £28 for them, which I think is such a bargain considering I did want them full price (£75) but they were sold out in size 5 on-line. I know these ones are sold out now but I have a similar pair from H&M (again sale) and there are these ones on new look and these on asos (I bought these too). You can also look on ebay for my specific pair but unfortunately there isn't any coming up at the moment. I was so lucky to find these flatforms in Office after months of lusting after them!

You sick of seeing me wear the same shoes everyday yet?

PS. So sorry about my veiny feet, I absolutely HATE feet to the point where I feel a little bit sick seeing someone elses foot! Which is actually a part of the reason why I never used to show them.

  1. There nice but certainly not worth £75 so £28 is a steal!

    1. they are real leather though so hence why it would have been £75! i do think thats acceptable for leather shoes!

    2. yeah, I work at office, you're generally never gonna get real leather for less than 50/60.

  9. Ooh what a bargain, and flat forms are such a great idea. For some reason I always used to think they must look really ugly, but these are gorge! I'm in desperate need(want) of some black, suede wedge booties but now I'm tempted by these instead!

    Hope packing hasn't been too stressful and the move goes well!

    1. haha i knoq what you mean, i always think of those platform sandals when I think of flatforms! vom!

  10. I'm the same about feet, I really hate them! It's more the toes though so I don't always mind seeing shoe posts, especially since I'm a bit of a shoe addict. I'm only 5"2 and my friends all tower above me but I can't live in heels, so I might invest in a pair of these! Good luck with the move xx

  11. I really understand where you coming from - I hate wearring flip-flops and sandals in summer because I'm just so much shorter than everyone else! This might be wierd but I also don't like being able to feel the ground through my shoes? So I don't wear 'dolly shoes' or ballet pumps at all. And I hate it when people have bare feet! I always make my friends wear socks in my hosue haha. Hope your move goes to plan :) http://simplesophiecn.blogspot.com/ xo

    1. i dont like that either! i hate feeling things under my feet so its probably why i wear heels alot nowadays! bare feet make me cringe!

  12. As long as I can't see toes I don't feel to gag. ;p Those shoes are lovely. I've never seen like them before but I think a shorty like me could do with a pair. :) x

  16. When I find a walkable heel, I cling to them for deal life! Once you're used to heels daily, it feels alien to wear flats!

    I actually can't wait for summer to wear sandals & wedges... I personally like my feet and love painting my toes pretty colours! Lots of people don't look after their feet, that's the trouble. Never nice to see a crusty heel in sandals EWWW!

    I think I may have to "eBay" flat forms ;-)

  18. Love the idea of flatforms.. being taller but your feet still feeling flat! Shame these are sold out :/ X

  19. Honestly if you think you're feet are veiny I think you'd vom at my horrid pale pair. Flatforms always have me on the fence a little bit but I do think these are absolutely lovely and a nice change from other types of shoes at the minute!

  24. H&M had pretty similar ones too. I own a quite a few pair of wedges, but never actually wear them as I much prefer the look of heels. Seeing this post really makes me want to get them out more often.

  25. Love these shoes, i just had to comment on this because i actually saw you wearing these in London on Tuesday, i was strolling down Bond st and you got off the bus right next to me & ran into Selfridges! This will sound weird but I actually felt a little bit star struck, I've been following your blog since the early days and adore reading your posts! Good luck with the move to LDN X X
