Stuart Weitzman ‘razmataz’ tasseled loafers in black suede
Not too long after my love letter to Porselli, did they finally reach their limit – a small nail became exposed on the inner sole at the heel, which started to cut into my foot with every step. I could only tough it out for a few days before I resigned to the fact that I’d have to toss them. Rather than wait for a replacement (My Chameleon had sold out in my size!), I decided to seek out an alternative. Something low heeled. Something suede. And something which was smart enough for the office, yet could do double duty on weekends too.
Truthfully, I didn’t really give it too much thought. I had other things to worry about; like my recent trip to New Zealand, the looming university assignment and final exam, and a new job to look forward to. So I suppose it was sort of inevitable that I would end up with these tassled loafers from Stuart Weitzman. Especially given the fact that I’d kept returning to their spot on the shelf at David Jones for a little longer than I’d like to admit.
They carefully tip-toe the line of graceful femininity and sartorial masculinity, that has kept me reaching for them most mornings. But my favourite way to wear them? A la garconne; a skinny cigarette pant, a billowing blouse, and a crisp black blazer. Watch this space.
