Our fashion contributor Melissa shows us her latest obsession that’s so good she may hang up her heels.
I like a tall heel as much as the next girl. Still, there comes a time when one must accept that flats are probably more appropriate for an occasion (and more comfortable). For me, that occasion is either a) the gym or b) when I am on vacation and thus planning on walking more than a few miles (I’m a museum-type vacationer) in said shoes. Seriously – my coworkers actually comment whenever I wear flats to work.
So last year when I went to London and Paris, I knew I was going to need some seriously stylish flats. Luckily, I found a pair of gray wing-tip laceless slippers that worked perfectly. Unluckily, I walked so much that I literally wore out the soles on them. But that has caused the rise of my latest obsession: loafers and smoking slippers for women.
If y’all would like to join me on this bandwagon (I encourage it! It’s comfortable up here!), feel free to check out a few of these shoes I am currently coveting:
1. Charlotte Olympia Web Slippers 2. Matiko Leather Slippers 3. J.Crew Tassel Loafers 4. Jeffrey Campbell Studded Slippers 5. Sam Edelman Cap-Toe Slippers 6. Alexander McQueen Pink Skulls
And, of course, if you guys have any suggestions, please feel free to share them in the comments – I’m always looking for new pairs – though my bank account might prefer if I weren’t.
