Well, I finally caved into the lace-up flat trend. I had been resisting forever and though I'm usually all about buying the "original" starter of a trend (which I think in this case were the Aquazzura Christy flats), I didn't love the how high the back part of that particular flat went. Also, the price point made me shy away. I was, however, fond of the price point and lower back heel of The Brezza flat by M. Gemi. I remember seeing the style pop up a while back and sell out like hotcakes. When I saw recently that the style had come back, I didn't hesitate this time around. When I unboxed them, the first thing I noticed was the quality – which made it feel like a more expensive shoe; and the shape of the toe (another thing I'm terribly picky about) – which was just the right amount of pointy. Plus they fit true to size.

Another fun option if black is too boring for you.


  1. This lace up style is indeed one of the most popular style of the whole year! So many brands have lace up flats! <3

  2. Alice,

    I caved into the lace up flats last week. And my pair came from Stuart Weitzman. Unbelievably well made and gorgeous ! They have a pair in silver that I think will be amazing for holiday parties. But I had to drag myself out before I purchased them both. I think i was the only one at the mall purchasing stuff that was not on sale.

    I wrote a little post on it if you would like to chat :

  3. LOve the idea but too flat for my idea of a party shoe xx

  4. I've been debating over this EXACT pair for a month now. Glad to hear you're enjoying yours!

  5. Caved in to the lace up flat also. I fell in love with the style from Tibi. I have never received more compliments on a pair of shoes and they are super comfortable!

  6. I have been curious about M Gemi shoes. I think they have cute shoes for reasonable price, but I have not read any reviews about them so, I was curious. It is good to know that they look great in person as well.
