Before going out to dinner with friends last weekend, I arrived in SF a little early to make returns at the mall and look around. After weaving in and out of a few women’s clothing stores being largely left alone or ignored by the staff, Mr. AN and I walked into a menswear store where I was immediately chatted up. One SA complimented my outfit, then joked around for a bit about how we matched, and another engaged me in a conversation about loafers. Apparently I have found my people…they work in menswear stores. =P

Now, can I tell you how obsessed I am with these loafers? I love the narrow, clean profile (e.g. not clunky which can make petites look stumpy), glazed leather, and unique, metallic tipped tassels. Dressier than a penny loafer, but not quite a full-fledged tasseled loafer, this is exactly the menswear inspired shoe I’ve been looking for. And the best part…they come in down to a size 4.5 (the size I’m wearing). If your size is sold out at the first retailer I liked to, they are also available here.

    Those loafers are awesome! First, how can you not love burgundy, patent leather? Second, I love the feminine, loafer look. I usually have to wear the heeled ones, but I would love to find a flat pair that doesn’t make my feet look huge. :)

  2. Woohoo! Glad you found your dream loafers. I’ve been eyeing up some smoking slippers myself and just found out the Charlotte Olympia Kitty flat comes in kids’ sizing on her website! May have to check those out in person soon. Your menswear inspo is rubbing off in good ways! ;)

    Wow, wow :) Lovely colour in your lofers. I have the same problem: how to wear lower heals without feet looking so big. Well, these kind of shoes are nice for a change anyway:) that little envelope handbag is pretty. <3

    Ahh I really like these loafers as well: I was even ready to make the splurge and order from France… but no size 4.5 left in either colour.
    Pity but might be better for my wallet! Could not find these exact shoes in Europe.

    Just found your blog – love it! And love these loafers; just found them in a gorgeous navy at Anthropologie … for a great price. Preppy with an edge – just my style!
