DIY Flats with Faux Pas Paris
When you find the LBD (Little Black Dress), or white t-shirt, or the pair of jeans that suits you best, they say that your fashion life becomes easier as you only need to accessorize. Imagine if it is the same thing with your shoes! That's what I felt after trying on my first Faux Pas Paris - to me, the perfect pair of pointy nude flats.
Wearing the Faux Pas Vendome in Latte. I described it as nude, but the brand's CEO himself, Sir Philippe Millieret, told me, "It's not nude, it's latte." I like it better, actually! It's as French as the product line's origin.
Faux Pas Paris started in 2013, a DIY lifestyle brand that seeks to inspire women to embrace not only their uniqueness, but also their madness. The brand name itself connotes not being cool, but being your own crazy self - To not be afraid to shake things up and create a blunder. I think a lot of women can relate to that!
Sir Philippe Millieret talks about his brand with so much passion:

In between round-toed and pointy flats, the Haussman:
If you're more comfortable with sandals, they have the Cannes:
Even with the sandals, the Jams are still interchangeable!
And of course, my first choice which is the Vendome - their pointy flats that will look great for both casual and formal events.
