Oooops! You have caught me cooing over Emmy Twenty's shop full of gorgeous ballet pumps.

I already have one pair that I have worn repeatedly over the past year and they have really been a joy to saunter about in. 

























My Emmy Twenty tale begun when I received an email from the founder last year. It turned out that we shared an obsession with ballet pumps but she really moved me with her story and her combined passion and determination to launch her brand. 

In her own words:

"........ I had become ever more frustrated with the dreary commute; spending 3 hours of my day on a slow, over packed train only made me more determined to do something I was actually passionate about.  I sketched designs in my spare time and started thinking seriously about how I would start a business in my twenties and with no outside funding. I stopped the daily lattes, resisted the urge to wander around Selfridges on my lunch break and basically became a lot less sociable in order to eventually save  enough to quit the day job and make Emmy Twenty a reality."

I had been grumbling about how difficult it can be to find a quality pair of leather ballet pumps in London that look good and have a price tag that goes easy on the wallet. It was a welcome sprinkling of serendipity that bought Emmy Twenty my way!


Notes: I wear my Danson ballet flats sockless but tend to reach for the Pedag Silky Touch Barefoot Spray which I wrote about HERE.

  2. Finding a good pair of leather ballet flats at a reasonable price is no easy feat. I have always admired this pair when I've been you wearing them and I loved reading the story behind the brand. It's always uplifting to read about someone who had given up the expectations of a regular day job to pursue something that they are truly passionate about!

  3. Those are adorable! I love them especially with the bow in front. You are gorgeously tall and can wear lovely flats like those. I'm a munchkin and need heels for height but would still love to wear a pair like that. Thank you for the post. I will go and wander around her online shop.

  6. Those are some really cute ballet flats, love the bowtie and the color. I personally have a love/hate relationship with them. I love wearing flats except for days when I feel very self-conscious about my very visible compression stockings/socks. Can't seem to find the right color that matches my skin color.

  7. They remind me of the type of shoes Hollie used to wear when we were a bit younger. She only seems to wear rugged boots or trainers nowadays.

  11. Looks pretty! I have a bunion, so shoes are not exactly my good friend but I wear them anyway for the sake of style once in a while, while suffering. But honestly in REAL life, I am mostly in my Birkenstock and thank the Stye God, they are somehow trendy now ;)

  12. Gosh, those shoes are beautiful! Most of the flats I come across don't look sturdy at all, but these look really well made.

  14. I love the bow. I think I get it from my mom who always chose simple flats for me to wear with bows. lol. I used to hate them as a child because most of the time I wanted to be a boy like my older brother but now as an adult I don't mind them too much :)

  15. Oh my goodness, I'm in LOVE with the shoes. I love that they are all leather (all quality I must have in every-day shoes) & love the backstory of the creator. Thanks for sharing! And for sharing the spray too!!!!
