Style Guile Smile – Is it a ballet flat? Is it a smoking slipper? No, it’s the Charlotte Olympia Bisoux Loafers

                                                  Bisoux loafers

You may have seen the post that I did last week about smoking slippers. On the whole, they were received very positively but I can understand that some have reservations about them. 

So these, I think, are a half way house between a ballet flat (which are starting to, dare I say it, look a bit dated) and a smoking slipper – the Charlotte Olympia Bisoux Loafers

At £465 they are not at all cheap but, the good news (I think) is that they have sold out in most sizes, other than a 37 – so even if you were tempted, it may not be possible to push that button on the computer which would make them yours!

However, what these did more than anything when I saw them, was make me smile. I love red shoes, I love pink shoes, so the combination of the two together and the cheeky lip detail were a perfect combination for me. They won’t ever be mine but I can live with that!

Anyone else hoping to watch the Spice Girls in action tonight? It’s got to be done really hasn’t it?  I’m just off to whizz up a Union Jack dress from a tea towel in preparation.

    Oooh, they're GORGEOUS! The great news is that I'm a size 37, but the gut wrenching news is that I don't have a spare £465 hanging around. But they're lovely to look at .. fingers crossed for a cheaper copy

    They are lovely – you have such style Beth I think you could make anything look good with your styling! I am softening to the idea of the slipper, but have seen some gorgeous metallic pumps in Karen Millen I have my eye on first when my 30 by 30 is over! Sigh ! X

    I was a disliker of the smoking slippers, but these are not in that category for me. Cute, vibrant, practical without being too fancy dress-like. They would make you laugh every time you looked at your feet (which hasn't happened since the sunburn in sandals 'incident' circa 2004. Though at this price, the shoes may be more painful way of achieving entertainment!) 🙂

    Hello all! It seems that these shoes are very popular – other than the price. Applebypie, thank you for your sweet comment and Laura, the sunburn incident sounds amusing if painful! If anyone find a cheaper version, please share the news!
