If you grew up in the 90s, you probably remember the Sam & Libby Ballet Flats that made an appearance in just about every female pre-teen's closet -- at least here in Georgia. They came in a wide variety of colors, with the requisite bow on top, and of course every girl I knew had at least one pair. I remember wearing mine to school and choral recitals in the 7th and 8th grades. I just loved my Sam & Libby shoes, which is why I (perhaps) still love bows to this day.
If you're wondering what happened to Sam & Libby, well, that shoe brand is no longer around, but Sam went on to launch the mega-brand Sam Edelman years later.
Today's shoes, from SJP, made me think of those Sam & Libby flats I wore just about 30 years ago. Has it really been that long? Ugh, I'm old!
