works cited: thrifted dress, belt, and loafers
Do you like heeled loafers? I was pretty wishy-washy on them until I saw this picture in a Real Simple magazine that I was flipping through in a waiting room. I really like the way the shoes were styled and suddenly I could imagine wearing them (but definitely not for the ridiculous prices at which most shoe stores sell them). A few weeks later, I stumbled upon these loafers (Italian leather! stacked heel! actually comfortable for walking in a city!) on a thrift expedition with Emily, and I happily realized I could recreate the styling of the Real Simple outfit entirely from thrifted items. This is a rare triumph for me, sweetened by the fact that Christopher surprisingly loves these shoes as much as I do. Happy day!
