Clothes I Look Stupid In: Part III

How did this happen? How did I end up with two sets of gaudy loafers in a span of one week? I need answers!

I started out frugally by buying the cheap glitter pair on the left from for $16 plus shipping. A steal price-wise, but I’m pretty sure they were made out of poster board. I found the leopard pair at Marshall’s for $43 and my God, it was like these were made for someone to actually wear comfortably. What was I to do? I couldn’t choose between them . Either I would have to return the first pair, which would take effort, or not buy the second pair which was obviously superior in quality and style. It was like Sophie’s Choice. It was exactly like choosing which one of your two children would die at the hands of  a Nazi.

Of course, I couldn’t give one up.

These shoes fall into the category of items that your girlfriends find attractive because they read the same JCrew catalogues you do, but any straight male human thinks they’re weird and ugly. Which is so strange because why wouldn’t they find shoes sexy that are predominately intended for elderly men?

I just want to know how much mileage I’m going to get out of these until a magazine reminds me that they are actually ugly and we all have to go back to wearing ballet flats again. I already threw out my ballet flats!

  1. I’m obsessed with these loafers. Congrats on finding good deals! I always look at the Stubbs and Wootton ones that are like $400 and I cry inside.
    This situation was the original Sophie’s Choice, for sure!

  2. SO I’m obviously sorry that you purchased the gojane ones and they turned out to be shitty, but alas I had the same pair in my virtual shopping cart yesterday….so you should feel good knowing that you have spared someone else the pain of buying such poorly made loafers. I ALSO wanted the tjmaxx/marshalls ones but for some reason I’m between sizes. SOB.
