Word Of The Week_D'Orsay Shoes __Hauterfly


The one universal trait of Team Hauterfly is that we’re all shoe lovers out here. While we may seem like sneakerheads thanks to the overdose of cool kicks on our site, trust me when I say this, we’re all that and more when it comes to shoes. Time and again, you’ll find one of us (if not more) slip into a pair that shows off a sliver of skin, or one that looks as feminine as feminine can be. Yes, we’re talking about a pair of super chic D’Orsay shoes.

What are these, you ask? Well, D’Orsay flats or pumps have a sleek silhouette and are usually pointy-toed. Named after Count Alfred D’Orsay, a rather dandy dude from the 19th century, these shoes were worn only by men before women decided to add them to their shoe closet too. The USP of these shoes is that the vamp (or the front portion of the shoe) is cut very close to the toes, wth one or both sides cut away. This architectural cut allows for the arches of you feet to be revealed, giving a sexy little peek of skin. The effect of these strategic cut-outs? They create an illusion of length and also slim down thick ankles.

A pair of D’Orsay shoes look polished enough for a 9-to-5 day and even work after hours. Team them with anything from a mini skirt to fitted trousers, and they’ll complete your ensemble in the chicest way possible. I recommend you shop it STAT!
