Look of the Week: The Vintage Shoe Debate

It’s really rare you find vintage shoes that fit well, and have a current look to them. I never look for, nor buy vintage shoes. They look odd. The heels are wrong. They’re narrow. And the idea of wearing someone else’s shoes is not exactly appealing. But on my last trip to Belgium I came across this pair of yellow and navy 60s loafers. They’re snug but comfortable and they look so cute! They’re a little hard to match with contemporary clothes, also because they’re not particularly flattering on the legs, but I think I did a good job with the structured white and bright green. I designed the dress myself, about 2 years ago, and it seems actual now because of all the peplum we’re seeing this season. And the sweater, oh that sweater! I’m head over heels with it….
