Chic Farm-Inspired Footwear

The Alice & Olivia Dawn Haircalf Flat Offers Country-Worthy Style

— October 8, 2012 — Fashion
The Alice & Olivia Dawn Haircalf flat is a cute, white slip-on shoe with black hearts. The furry texture on the footwear is the result of using dyed cow hair.

These adorable shoes use haircalf from Brazil to make their design really stand out. The sole of the shoes are leather with a black canvas outline at the very top. The bottom is non-slip rubber. These shoes are supremely white and chic. They will jazz up any outfit and will look very flattering with a pair of knitted herringbone shorts and black tights.

Cute as they are, if you are uncomfortable with the thought of cow hair being a design element on your shoes, then you can choose to admire them from afar.
