I have been in search of the perfect neutral flat, and have found them. On sale no less! I bought little arch inserts in anticipation of finding them one day (and knowing how flats are). Can't wait until they arrive sometime next week!!
They will be infinitely more elegant than my Chuck Taylor's for my AM commute to work.
My husband and I are both opera singers, and in the fall we moved from NYC to Michigan, where he is now a professor of voice and opera at Oakland University. In January we bought our first house-- an 1895 Victorian, and we're expecting our first child (a boy) in April.
