Chloé: A story of lust

Lately, it seems as if Holt Renfrew has not been skimping when it comes to making its customers feel welcomed!  Everytime I shop there, I have been greeted by complimentary drinks from Starbucks and chocolate.  This time, I was greeted with glasses of white and red wine (which, of course, I did not try), and a piece of absolutely delicious cake in the form of a baby blue Marc by Marc Jacobs bag to celebrate the label's 10th anniversary.

With the spring stock finally calling Holt Renfrew its home, there were fantastic new pieces on the racks, some taken straight off the runway.  In the shoe department, there was one shoe in particular that had me sweeping it up, and unwilling to put it back down.  And that shoe was a pair of Chloé braided strap flats in nude:
The glimmer of the braided, silver chain ankle strap makes this more than just your average pair of flats.  I love how the simplicity of the flat is paired with the elegance and glamour of the ankle strap.  But that does not mean the rest of the flat is not beautiful in itself.  The leather vamp of the shoe is smooth and polished, and the round toe is shaped to perfection.
This flat also comes in metallic black leather, but I find the nude matches better with the ankle strap, and it's more feminine.  However, I do recall the leather looking slightly darker - more towards a brown - in real life, but maybe I am mistaken.

If there's any way to subtly draw attention to your shoes, this is one of them.  Chloé has given me yet another thing to lust after.

  4. You have every right to lust after this Chloe flats! It's gorgeous! I love shoes with ankle straps lately..they add such an elegant touch!

    Yeah, my exboyfriend didn't really care about the romantic things I did for him. It's sad, really but now, I realize I need to be with someone who appreciates all the things I do for him! xoxoxoo

  9. These shoes are absolutely amazing, I love the nude model. i agree with every words of your post and I think that Chloè is making really gorgeus shoes and accessories during the McGibbon and philo (before...), periods....

  14. Wow, I am in awe! I adore these shoes, I really see what you mean about "subtly drawing attention." These flats are so chic they would attract eyes from miles away, yet they don't try to hard or go over the top. Plus they look versatile and walkable as well! The thin gold band is the perfect touch. Gosh, starbucks, chocolate, and cake? I'm jealous! I wish we had more Holt-Renfrews here!

  18. Wow, a better response to this pair of flats than I thought! I didn't think so many people would like it as much as I do!

    @E: I agree with you. I think Chloe is doing really well lately. Making some fabulous pieces that will be sure to be coveted.

    @Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou: Thank you so very much! No matter how many times I get told that, I am flattered each and every time.

  19. I have to admit I'm a bit addicted to Chloé. I force myself not to buy more than two items in one season. But believe me, it is so hard! These shoes are on my wishlist, ofcourse.

  21. There is so much to lust over at Chloe. I'm not usually a fan of flats but the strap really attracts me to these. I love the sound of these shopping experiences though - free Starbucks and chocolate?! Can I please come with you next time?
