hands down, the most worn pair of shoes in my closet are my black pointy flats.  as much as i love my heels, with all the traveling that i do, i need shoes that are stylish but comfortable.  plus, its much easier to run to catch a flight in flats than heels.

my old black pointy flats were from london sole, and while they are cute, they did not hold up well this year (despite my preventive measures).  i had my eyes on these tabitha simmons hermione flats, but waited until the 3rd markdown on them to take the plunge.

i love how elegant they are, and the mary jane strap adds just a bit of fun.  i will report back on how they are holding up.  they need a trip to the cobbler before they are ready to brave the streets of nyc.
