Cute Flats: Libby Edelman Kendra in cheetah
Some of you may recall those classic Sam & Libby leather ballet flats with bow that were all the rage in the late eighties/early nineties (if not, you can see one pair pictured here). I can certainly remember a time when everyone had these shoes and they came in all kinds of colors (I had black and loved them to death). When I first saw the Libby Edelman Kendra pictured above, it had me thinking about those shoes once again. Of course, it’s partly because Libby Edelman is the “Libby” from Sam & Libby and this pair is from her namesake Libby Edelman brand, while her husband is Sam Edelman, whose namesake brand we all know so well. But, it’s also because the Kendra has similar bow detail in the front, like the original, but with a bit of an update: it’s even larger and made of flouncy satin, plus the pink color contrasts so nicely with the cheetah print. Totally adorable.
