Cool decor and cleverly designs make this Santa Monica shop a mecca for ballerina flats, with looks appropriate for any age or occasion. – In Short
The offerings in this pocket-sized, English-inspired boutique range from metallic Grecian sandals to suede driving moccasins and thick leather handbags, but the real stars of this show are the company's famous ballet flats. They come in patent leather, sequins, twill, velvet and every other imaginable fabric. Standouts include a pair of glittery flats that would make a girl feel like Dorothy, if only she had landed on Montana Avenue instead of in Oz.
Hits: Fun decor, range of colors and looks for the same comfy shoe.
Misses: Parking can be a headache.
Timeless Footwear – If you're looking for cute, stylish shoes that won't hurt your feet, this tiny store will definitely be your new haven. Aside from their famous ballet flats, they also carry a selection of other comfortable shoes, such as soft driving shoes and the very trendy metallic-y sandals. But the star of the store is the ballet flat. They're available in basically every color of the rainbow, so you will definitely find what you are looking for to complement any outfit. Although the price may seem kind of steep for such a simple shoe (the flats start at about $110 a pair), the style is timeless, so you're guaranteed a shoe that will stay in style for any season. I purchased a pair of of leather gold flats and black flats, which I'm very happy about since I will always wear them :) .
