Chanel Flats



Chosen By: Tastemaker Name

Tastemaker Bio

When a female receives a piece of luxury on their birthday, it's very, very, unlikely she will complain.  However, for the giver, this is not really "good news" as luxury products are expensive!   


We have a solution (well, sort of)...go for the luxury shoes!  Luxury shoes are definitely less expensive than luxury jewelry or handbags and can be equally timeless.  We particularly love the idea of giving a classic chanel ballet flat.  We promise this shoe won't go out of style and can be incorporated into any female's wardrobe.  Alternative shoe options also listed below.


Oh, and one more tip...


Do you recall that Marilyn Monroe quote "Give the girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world?".  Yeah, we thought you probably didn't.  But anyway, the point is, why don't you weave this quote somewhere into the card to show how clever you are!




In regard to where to buy.  We strongly suggest you purchase from a retail store rather than online!  Why?  Because the only online outlet that actually sells Chanel shoes is Chanel itself.  It is a better idea to buy from Saks or Neiman Marcus.  Some Nordstroms or Bloomingdale also carry them.  This allows the recipient to re-shop the gift with larger optionality, should she return the shoes.
