As many of us know, working in retail has its fair share of ups and downs. During my long-held career in sales, I had the fortune of trying on a pair of dainty Charlotte Olympia "Kitty Flats" (pictured above). They had a tiny gold heel and a quirky-cute cat face stitched onto them. I wanted those shoes so desperately, but the price tag was cruel. To this day I still crave those darling statement flats.
Other people must have been as obsessed with them as I was, because less expensive styles are popping up everywhere lately. After all, such a statement piece can't be worn every day, so there's no need to shell out for a pricey version if you're a broke college student.
If you want to try out these adorable shoes, you'll be in good company: trendsetting celebs like Alexa Chung, Taylor Swift, SJP, and Beyoncé have been spotted stepping out in cat-inspired flats. Personally, I think this is a big fashion DO.
