Q. Are Tory Burch Reva flats still in for Spring 2009? I have worn my first pair out so much over the last year and a half and am in need of a new pair. I love them and don’t mind buying a new pair because they pay for themselves when you factor in the cost/wear; however, when I see all the teenage girls wearing them I begin to question their style status. Please advise!
A. The Tory Burch Reva ballet flat is so ubiquitous, it has become a classic. Once super trendy and “hot”, it has spawned a multitude of knockoffs which can be either the sincerest form of flattery or the kiss of death. The Reva has successfully transitioned from a must-have fad to timelessly chic, introducing new colors and styles every season. This season, there is even an espadrille and jelly version added to the line. In other words, don’t expect to get the same “oohs and ahs” you did when the shoe first came out, but it’s still a stylish addition to your wardrobe.
