It's a fact of life: little girls love glittery shoes. We should all give thanks to Dorothy, and the high demand for all things twinkle toes, because they never go out of style.

J. Crew's Twinkle Italian ballet flats, on sale for $40, offer traditional glittery shoe appeal with a sturdy sole. I also love the inexpensive Sonoma life+style Flicker Ballet Flats, $14, for play dates and trips around town.
