Traci writes: Hi Outblush! So, I pride myself on my online shopping skills, however one of my new have-to-haves for Fall, I can't seem to find anywhere! I'm looking for a super plain (no tassels or bows), super sleek, brown (like a cognac brown) leather (not suede) women's loafer (the new, cool-looking style, ya know?). The only one I've found is Steve Madden's Madee... and something about the roundness of the toe bothers me (I'm picky). I love the Aldo Killion, but no brown! So if you could find anything out there for me, I would appreciate it so much!Thanks!
Oof, Traci! This was crazy tough. All I've got to say is that you are just a skosh ahead of trend, as the hip new loafers you're looking for aren't available from a lot of designers yet. Here's my best shot, hopefully one of these fits what you're looking for.
1. Sam Edelman Alvin ($130)
Nurture Tiffany Loafers ($60)
2. Report Donovan Loafers ($90)
3. Hush Puppies Giza ($20)
4. Born Shelley Loafers ($85)
5. Clarks Timeless ($76 on sale)
6. Earth Origins Sally Women's Loafer ($60)
Robin here:I have an obsession with all things glittery, sparkly and glam, even though I tend to spend most of my time in jeans or gym clothes. If I'm not shopping or working out, I'm planning a social gathering of some sort, ranging from a Big Lebowski Bash, Stitch 'n' Bitch, or an Evening of Cocktails and Crudité. Ask me about fitness, crafts, fashion, makeup, hostess gifts, good tunes or my ultimate shopping victory: size 12 rhinestone and spike studded pumps for Vegas.
