One must-have for our complete transformation into the Francoise Hardy-esque, 1960's era French muse we've always wanted to be is a chic Clare V. tote or clutch. Another crucial accessory is the perfect ballerina flat, which—we're assuming—is the exact reason the luxe bag brand's beautiful WeHo boutique (619 N Croft Avenue) has paired up with made-to-measure shoe line Margaux for a pop-up this Saturday.
The New York based footwear company prides itself on making a quality product: their flats are constructed by hand in Spain using Italian suede. And let's talk about that fit; the foot-hugging shape is padded with memory foam and the cut opens just wide enough for the perfect peek of toe cleavage. The classic flat is currently available in 14 colors and customers have the option of purchasing in standard European sizes ($175 or $245 for limited edition) or custom made-to-measure ($195 or $265).
The 5-7pm trunk show invites patrons to peruse pairs, including a peek at their new leopard print calf hair flat—a Holiday Limited Edition style. Shop the standard line or place your order for the festive new design (Don't forget to grab a fitting kit if you want the customized option!) while you sip champagne. Sounds like our Parisian dream come true.
