Its a tricky game of cat and mouse when it comes to deciding between two of the most covetable pieces of footwear to buy this season - so we thought we'd break it down. We first spotted the adorable Charlotte Olympia Kitty flats last year when we drooled over them all winter through to this summer when they were confirmed as a carry through style to be produced each season -yay! Available in classic black and red velvet, in a summery espadrille style for SS12 and in a key new colour for each season going forward, the feline flats have been causing a websites to crash and stores to instantly sell out...
...but we then noticed a pair of twinkly Glitter mouse pumps by Marc by Marc Jacobs that had just landed in store at Matches, and from there our dilemma began. Even superstar songstress Beyonce couldnt decide between the two so she chose a super cute matching ensemble with her two month-old daugther Blue Ivy. Taking a stroll in the Big Apple, her outfit consisted of a dusty pink blazer over a baggy shirt with rolled-up jeans where both she and Blue were wearing matching pumps. While Mummy B followed in the fashionable footsteps of Alexa Chung with Charlotte Olympia's leopard-print kitty flats, Daughter B was sporting a pair of diddy mouse slippers by Little Marc Jacobs. Too cute! Baby B's animal flats have been so poplular that Selfridges London have dedicated an entire pop-up store to the adorable pumps.
