Flash Post: Spring Forward
What It Is: A new line-up of springy shoes from 138-year-old brand Liberty, available exclusively at The Bay by way of the brand’s UK headquarters. What’s cool about Liberty is they don’t just design for themselves – major fashion houses like Marc Jacobs have pilfered their prints for their own looks thanks to Liberty’s classic-yet-cheerful take on the ubiquitous floral pattern, which at this point is pretty much perennially trendy each and every Spring. The new line-up of ballet flats, wedges, sneaker wedges, and slip-ons will put you in step with the season – and style.
Who It’s For: A pair of sneaker wedges for your fashion maven little sister, so she can stand out now and maybe possibly cringe at the style later. A pair of ballet flats for each of your bridesmaids, to wear during the reception but still look festively sweet. A set of bow-topped espadrilles for your mom for Mother’s Day, to don for her annual garden parties.
What It Costs: The ‘Toms-inspired’ slip-ons start at $69, with prices creeping up to the $129 mark for the sneaker wedges. My personal favourite, the classic flats, are $79.
Where It’s At: As I mentioned, The Bay is the exclusive source in Canada for Liberty’s lineup of floral printed blouses and pretty shoes.
