Penny Loafers- Bass

I grew up loving oxfords and loafers. I knew from an early age I was born in the wrong era. There was a stint in my life where I wanted to look like everyone else and so I buried my mature sense of style to blend in. I was still different and was always made aware of it.

I have now come to my senses.

I have been craving loafers for almost seven years now, but could not find ones that were that hard leather and in a size for women. My craving has been satisfied by Bass. I never splurge on clothes or shoes. And even though these are originally priced at a 1/4 of my paycheck, Labor Day sales allowed for me to maintain a non-splurge purchase.

I still have to find some more close toed shoes for my internship...but then I also need some for the upcoming GENT event my boy J.O. is putting on (more on that later) and I want those to be saucy.

But I digress.

I am definitely wanting to do a whole collegiate prep style with these shoes, but I want to think beyond Ralph Lauren Polo. These are my style-spirations.

  1. I grew up on penny loafer's, too! Posted about mine just yesterday. I've got the Bass ones, too. My husband (then boyfriend) surprised me with them for my birthday three years ago and they still look great! When made well, they're the perfect, timeless (closed-toe!) shoes!
