My world is flat”s”

Everyone knows the world is round but a few years ago I made a change in my life and it became mostly flat, as in ballet flats.  I hope the fact that I’m male and these shoes are marketed for females doesn’t offend anyone.  I’m sorry if it does.   I’ve always admired the look of ballet flats on women and often thought I’d like to adopt the same look for myself in a unisex way.  In 1999 I bought my first pair of flats but was too nervous and embarrassed to wear them in public.  Several years later a supportive friend suggested it’s OK to wear what I want.  She too was a fan of ballet flats and we would go out wearing our flats together.  I still remember the first time I saw a women wearing a pair of the iconic Tory Burch Reva flats.  I thought to myself, “someday I’ll have a pair of those.”  Living in Canada there were very few places that sold the Tory Burch brand and so for years I could only dream about owning a pair.  During a Winter vacation in November 2011 in Scottsdale, Arizona I stopped by the Scottsdale Fashion Plaza (Now renamed to the Scottsdale Fashion Centre)  I stopped by places like Saks, Neimum Marcus, and Nordstroms.  They all carried the Tory Burch flats I wanted.  Centered between all these stores was a Tory Burch boutique.  I nervously walked in, looked around and asked if they had the black patent Revas in a size 10.  I think the sale associate  sensed they were for me, so when she came out with the box she asked if I’d like to try them on.  Wheew!  What a relief.  Sadly they were way to small.  After about 40 minutes and trying on several pairs I had my first pair of Tory flats. I still remember what my amazing sales associate said when I was paying for my Tory flats. I was VERY nervous but I thanked her for making me feel so comfortable while buying myself my first pair of Tory flats.  She replied, “at Tory Burch we think EVERYONE should be able to enjoy our great flats.”  And enjoy them I have. This is my first real post and I’m quite new at this so please bare with me.  I have read lots of awesome blogs and I felt it’s time to start sharing some of my thoughts and my always growing collection of Tory Burch flats.  In November 2011 I bought my first pair and today my collection includes the iconic Tory Burch Reva flats, the super comfy Tory Burch Eddie flats, some throw on and wear anywhere Tory Burch Caroline flats, a small collection of Tory Burch Miller sandals and a few others.
