Currently Coveting: Charlotte Olympia Zodiac Shoes

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen my excited tweets over Charlotte Olympia's new Cosmic Collection, a line of Birthday Shoes and Zodiac Pandora perspex clutches inspired by what else? Star signs!

The clutches are definite statement pieces but I've personally got my eyes on the shoes (now on sale at Net-a-Porter). I'm loving the rainbow of colours, all topped with sparkly Swarovski crystal and enamel ornaments.


What's even better is that the Virgo flats (here) are actually cute. I feel like some zodiac signs often get the short end of the stick when it comes to horoscope-inspired items (my sign being one of them). They also happen to match my Miu Miu mini bow bag perfectly.

The question is: can I really justify another trendy flats purchase? My Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats have certainly become a closet staple but it looks like these will have to go on the wishlist... for now.

  1. I usually get frustrated with zodiac signs because I find that Taurus is always just not very nice... I kind of like these, though! I love Virgo - it's so feminine!

    1. Virgo items are usually a bit weird too since there's only so much you can do with the sign... definitely pleasantly surprised with these flats!

  6. These are so cute! I don't mind the look of my star sign, Sagittarius. I'm glad they didn't put a centaur on it. Virgo sort of reminds me of medusa o_o

    1. You're right, she does look kind of like Medusa. How funny, that never occurred to me!

  7. I just discovered these - and the matching clutches - the other day and fell in love! I'm a Libra and I often find that, as a zodiac sign, it tends not to work well for zodiac-themed clothing and accessories. But in this case, Charlotte Olympia really managed to make each sign look as impressive as the next, which is no mean feat. It might be a little hard to justify a trendy purchase like this, which I totally get, but to me, a big part of it would be how comfortable the kitty flats are. If they're great shoes that you wear all the time, then why not?

  17. I love these! I don't think they're even remotely trendy. Zodiacs are about as timeless as it gets, and what a fun way to make your wardrobe more personal and meaningful! :)
