Ivory Tory Burch Lowell flats

Went I first saw the Tory Burch Lowell flats show up on the Tory Burch website I knew I was going to get a pair someday. I didn’t expect that day to come so quick. They come in six amazing colour but the ones that caught my eye first were the ivory coloured ones. Likely because I already have lots of black, blue other fun colours but not very much in ivory or white. I’ve often stayed away from these tones because I didn’t always feel comfortable wearing them. Now since I’ve slowly been changing my personal style to become more feminine I think these will be perfect. One thing that has always drawn me towards Tory’s flats or sandals is her trademark logo. Whether it be the Revas, Carolines or Millers, she has put some unique version of her round trademark logo. What’s really fun and unique with these new Lowell’s is the non round version of her iconic brand double “T” logo. It’s similar to some of the ones she’s used on her clutches and purses. Let me introduce you to the Tory Burch Lowell. imageimage     image And of course, this is me wearing them. image   image image   image   image

What do you think of this new Lowell flat from Tory Burch?  


Pre Black Friday shopping

By now I’m sure everyone is aware I’m crazy in love with the Tory Burch brand. Mostly her iconic shoes and flats but also recently her boots. One other thing I love about Tory Burch is the customer service. Three years ago this week I took my first nervous steps into the Tory Burch boutique in Scottsdale Arizona. I was looking to buy myself a pair of her Reva flats. I was not sure what to expect for a reaction from the sales associates in this high end boutique with me, a guy, looking to buy a pair of these Reva flats for myself.  Long story short the sale associate and I became friends.   She wanted me to email her if there was anything I needed or just to say hello.  Sadly a few months after meeting her she was planning on making a career move and going to be leaving Tory Burch.  I still talk to her a couple times a year. One amazing thing she did for me before she left was pass me off to one of her coworkers who I now deal witH OK. I’m finally getting around to talking about what the title of this post is.  Pre Black Friday shopping.   My new sales associate in Scottsdale takes very good care of me.  So does my other amazing sales associate in my hometown of Calgary, who I will post about soon.  For the past two years my Scottsdale SA knows I’ll be in town and like to take advantage of the Black Friday sale.  Not wanting to see me have to “battle” the other crazy BF shoppers she wants me to come in before Black Friday so I can try on and find everything I might want.  On November 24th I did just that.  After trying on several different pairs of flats and boots I painstakingly narrow it don’t to just 2 pairs.  (I’m still on a budget 🙂  The two pairs I decided on were the classic black patent Carolines  and the almond colour Marlene riding boots. image image

i hope this doesn’t come off as sounding creepy but when I arrived at the Scottsdale Fashion Plaza I browsed around for sometime before stopping at the Tory Burch boutique.  During that time I notice three separate women that were wearing these exact Carolines and they looked amazing.  I think this effected my decision to get them.

Are you doing any Black Friday shopping?
