A Walk on the Wild Side

Romantic as I am, occasionally I like to take a walk on the wild side. And what better way to do that than with a pair of leopard print flats from French Sole’s signature collection, the purrfect choice for my latest adventure, an exploration of the urban […]

Love is in the air!

Love is in the air!

Love is in the air and as the wedding season is upon us, this month I’ve been doing a lot of singing! To quote Marilyn Monroe, my French Sole India flats, like diamonds… “Are a girl’s best friend”. . .   Those are praises sung from […]

Another Italian Adventure

Another Italian Adventure

A trip to Rome earlier this year left me yearning for another Italian adventure. Having just received my brand new Henrietta flats, made of sumptuous nude woven leather, I decided my trip should be somewhere more rustic and in tune with nature. The north would be too […]

Weekend in Paris

Weekend in Paris

A most spontaneous decision came to me just the other day, while I stared lovingly at my brand new French Sole Henrietta in crocodile print…Which by the way, now come in the exciting new colours of cool coral, elegant taupe and exquisite turquoise. Hot on the […]

French Sole Sandals

French Sole Sandals

I’m writing this between sips of my ice-cold Limoncello, not far from The Spanish Steps, relieved to be sitting down and giving my beautiful French Sole sandals a well-deserved rest. It seems only fair after all, as these super soft favourites of mine have been […]

French Sole Ballet Flats

French Sole Ballet Flats

A mere glimpse of French Sole Henrietta ballet flats will echo in me words such as Plie, Balancé, Coupé and Pas de bourrée. These are terms, that fill me equally with joy as much as with fear, for they form the core of my youth […]

Into the Wild sneakers

Into the Wild sneakers

  Today I’m venturing out on a secret agent mission, to test how sneaky my new French Sole sneakers can really be. “Moochers”, that’s the name they’ve given to these super silent lace-ups and I’m told that they’ve become the favourite footwear of Californian celebrities […]

A Walk on the Wild Side

A Walk on the Wild Side

Romantic as I am, occasionally I like to take a walk on the wild side. And what better way to do that than with a pair of leopard print flats from French Sole’s signature collection, the purrfect choice for my latest adventure, an exploration of the urban jungle that is New York City. With a new thrill waiting around every corner, everything seems possible. . .  even a Breakfast at Tiffany’s (and yes they really do that now), my choice of footwear made it easy for me to leap like a leopard from one location to the next. 

To add to my experience, with my concealing camouflage of an all-black ensemble, consisting of a pencil skirt and a cotton wrap top made me clearly look like I belonged to the city that never sleeps. At one point, I was mistaken by a tourist for a native New Yorker! Flattered by the compliment my new leopard print flats received and the fact I was taken for a local of the Big Apple, it didn’t even occur to me that I was giving the unfortunate woman completely the wrong directions. Well, at least she knows from where I got my fabulous shoes! 

The list of places to see and things to do in Manhattan is endless. My many hours spent at The Met, Central Park and a lingering stroll along what felt surely like the length of 5th Avenue did leave me feeling exhausted but exhilarated because I was dressed for it. After all French Sole flats are always the right choice, no matter where you go in this town, you will feel like you can be a part of it. The only thing to remember is your red lipstick and pardon moi! Of course a credit card for indulging in shopping later. 

I’m very curious how other French Sole fans are styling their French Sole Henrietta flats in leopard print. Do mention #frenchsoleblogbyamelie on your Instagram and I’ll be reposting the most creative looks on our FS page. 

With love,
