Shop Loafer Pumps For Fall 2011

Trendspotting: The Penny Loafer Pump

Today, OnSugar blogger The Artful Shopper shares her love for one of Fall's hottest shoe trends — the loafer pump. Listen up to what she has to say, then shop her favorite picks!

“In fashion, either you’re in, or you’re out.” In the 6th grade, I wanted “in” and that meant joining the so-called “Preps” so, I assembled a wardrobe of V-necks, cableknits and Palazzo pants. And one of my most coveted items of them all? Wait for it . . . penny loafers.

Who can forget the novelty of buying their first must-have pair of shoes that all the other kids are wearing? Maybe yours were some pretty heels, or a cushy pair of UGG's, or a stylin’ set of Nike Airs, but penny loafers? Sure, there was the novelty of having big sis help me make them look all shiny, and adding the little charm of a penny, but who can forget the thick, awkward block heel, the unflattering height and the typically dowdy association with straight-laced school marms and perhaps, those least interested in fashion, “Gulp,” nuns?

Read the rest.
The older, wiser, more fashionable me, looks back with just a wee bit of horror. And know the loafer is back, but not at all to haunt me. Reconstructed and more feminine then ever, the new it-shoe has sexy lift with a built-in platform, contoured heels and comes in brilliant array of shades & styles that say “I may be bookish but I’m comfortable standing out.”

It's easy to find great loafer pumps at this price ! Find something beautiful for daily use at a reasonable price is very hard but your article would have been much more interesting.
