The d'Orsay

I am officially gooly-eyed and drooling over these --these perfectly designed, fantastically classy, and outright clean and timeless shoe.  I want.  No.  I NEED.  And I am very much in shoe-love with the d'Orsay flat.  Look at her.
Jenni Kayne Suede D'Orsay Flat $450
What is a d'Orsay, you say?  According to a simple Google search, a d'Orsay is a "a woman's show in which the vamp of the shoe is cut away very close to the toe box, and the sides are cut away, revealing the arch of the foot." (

Jenni Kayne, Phillip Lim, and Alice + Olivia are among a few high-end designers that carry d'Orsays in a variety of heart-stopping styles. Jeffrey Campbell, Nasty Gal, and ShoeMint also make a few slightly more affordable pairs.  However, if you're young-ish and broke like me, then here are some way cheaper alternatives that are just as cute!
BDG D'orsay Skimmer $29 from Urban Outfitters
Studio Flats $38 from Need Supply Co.
Dolly Blush D'orsay $21 from Lulus
Breckelle's Dolly Ankle Strap $20 from ZooShoo

And THAT is as far as my online hunt goes for tonight.  I am waiting on Lulus to restock their d'Orsays so I can get one in every colour!  In the meantime...I'm contemplating the white leather ones from Nasty Gal...mmmm.
