The 12 Yosi Samras of Christmas: Part 1

I have always been a ballet flats kind of girl. Way before these became hot, and I mean, since 2005, it just was the sort of footwear I've been living in day in and day out. I just love wearing ballet flats that I am constantly on the lookout for the perfect pairs to add to my collection of French Soles, Repettos and Lanvins.

I first learned about Yosi Samra from my friend Pam, and I was smitten at first sight! She swears by it, and well they just look great. We were at the playground for our kids' play date and she was wearing a pair of nude flats that just looked so chic and comfy. I imagined they cost a fortune, but she said not at all, she got them at Trinoma and they were Yosi Samras.

When I tried a pair on, it was like walking on pillows, and from then on, I've been hooked.

Packable split rubber soles, so you can take these flats anywhere

Soft elastic top line for a secure and snug fit, plus padded insoles ensure comfort

Soft and smooshy cowhide leather molds to the shape of your feet

That is why this Christmas, I am giving my favorite girls the gift of comfort by way of Yosi Samra. The Holiday 2012 Collection is just the right mix of fun and festive and I just know there's a pair for every girl on my list!

Meet my girls and their Yosi Samras...

Day 1: Glitter in Gold

Of course, I know what to get my friend Pam - Yosi Samras! She has two pairs - a nude patent and a black python and she practically lives in them. Pam loves wearing neutrals, that I can bet her wardrobe is pretty much filled with neutrals - blacks, greys and whites. So I'm adding a dash of glitter and flash with gold glitter flats! It's perfect for when she does her mommy duties, as well as store visits for her clothing line Willow. And since she travels a lot, then it's a great pair to pack for the plane ride for whatever destination she heads off to. 

Day 2: Tweed Flat in Black/Hot Pink

My adorable cousin Thea is practically like a sister to us. She's cute and perky and I can totally see her in these non-conventional tweed flats with a hot pink cap toe. No boring, black flats for this girl! It's a fun addition to a college girl's casual school wardrobe and comfortable enough for rushing from class to class. I can't wait to see the outfits she'll pair this with when she wears her Yosi Samras to school

2 girls down, 10 more to go!


Yeah, Yosi but not the ciggie. Yosi Samras, in case you didn't know, are fold-up ballet flats from the US. The flats are designed by 2nd generation shoemaker Yosi Samra, and come in leather, suede, satin, exotic skin and prints. They are meant to be worn after wearing heels all day, but they are made so well and are just so comfy, that they have become a busy girl's go-to flats. 

Yosi Samras are available at specialty boutiques in 15 countries worldwide and my favorite online stores like Shopbop, Revolve Clothing and Intermix. In the Philippines, look for Yosi Samra in GAS at Greenbelt 3, Trinoma, Alabang Town Center and Rockwell. Visit the first Yosi Samra concept store at Mall of Asia.
