Review: J. Crew Viv Patent Flats in Festival Green

Hi Everyone!

I received the J. Crew Viv Patent Flats in Festival Green today.  I really like these shoes.  Here are a few IRL pictures of the shoes:

I sized up a 1/2 size to a 9 1/2 in these shoes. 

What do you think of the J. Crew Viv Patent Flats in Festival Green?  Do tell!

    Hi R! I am not a big fan of that color. I like the color of the KS flats more, but that's just my opinion.I am trying so hard not to buy during this last promo, but I am tempted by some dresses.

    Hi A! I am super grateful for your opinion about these shoes. I'm considering returning them. My husband said they're "just okay." I'm still trying to decide how to style these shoes. Thanks SO much for your help!!!Thanks SO much for being here!

    Oooo I think they are a great color for summer 🙂 Very Kate Spade. But are they comfortable for fit and for walking? That would be my deciding factor. I feel like you could probably find a similar colored pair at Old Navy or something. I'll keep you posted if I see a similar pair lady!Tasiap.s. style with jeans! = amazingness. floral dresses/skirts? oooo I'm getting too many ideas now 😛

The shoes are super comfortable. Again, thanks SO much!!!And, thanks a bunch for being here; I really appreciate it!

    Hey Rynetta,I keep thinking about getting these flats in black as a basic for my wardrobe. Do you think they're worth investing in? $188 is quite a chunk of cash for a pair of black flats.Thanks!Cassie

    Hey Cassie! I really like these flats. I haven't had any quality issues with my J. Crew flats (I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I don't!). That said, however, $188 is a bit pricey for a pair of black flats. Have you tried Madewell? They have some really cute flats at a much cheaper price. I'm actually about to do a post on their skimmers. HTH!Thanks SO much for being here!
