Revisiting A Classic : Ferragamo Vara Pumps

I've probably been unfairly critical of classic Ferragamo pumps - too low.. too boring... too matronly?

It's taken Alexa Chung to pique my interest in this old faithful. Could the Vara replace the trusty ballerina as choice flat(ish) footwear? (I'll get to Oxfords in another post)

It might well be that she's at least a foot taller and 2 dress sizes skinnier, but I was always under the impression the Vara bow pumps made petites look stumpy and schoolmarmish. If Alexa is on board, I might give them a try the next time I'm in town. That and the twin prospect of having a reason to raid my mother's vintage shoe collection ;) Stay tuned.
