A favorite, ugly thing

4 Oct

This seems to be the season or seasons for ugly shoes. As if we want to counterbalance the cutesy outfits with clunky, schoolmarm-ish footwear. To my surprise, I find myself (after a period of contemplation and twirling this way and that in the store) seeing their potential. Who can forget those loafers and moccasins in high school with the low to knee-high socks (for the shy ones)? And before you start imagining me in those schoolgirl skirts that launched a million fantasies, ours were long enough to be relegated to dowdiness.

So, yes, I bought a pair of oxfords and has worn them quite a bit to replace my Toms to battle the Boston chill. But these Loeffler Randalls are urging me to further expand my comfort zone: ethnic prints to draw even more attention to my ugly shoes. After living away from Miami for so long, encasing my feet seems to be more prudent (or prudish).

    If you are looking for some “non-confy” pair of shoes, but gorgeous…check YSL winter collection 😉
