Penny Loafin'

While out thrifting the other day, I found the perfect addition to my shoe collection: penny loafers!  These  Barney's New York snakeskin beauties were too wonderful to pass up, and they only ran me $7.25.  Once I brought the loafers back home to be introduced to their new closet-mates, however, I realized I had absolutely no idea how to wear them.  The only thing I was sure of was that I needed to put pennies in them!

Thrifted loafers, Barney's New York by way of Buffalo Exchange.

I decided that tradionally 'old-man' footwear would shine with a classic silhouette and quirky details.  I went the menswear-inspired route and paired cuffed Alice and Olivia pants with a vintage cockatoo-printed tank.  

Pants and belt, Alice and Olivia.  Top, vintage.

Men around the world will shudder when they lay their eyes upon this outfit (judging by my boyfriend's reaction), but I personally think it's sartorial genius.   

Who doesn't love a good cockatoo blouse??


  1. You have no idea just how incredibly jealous I am right now - they are perfect! I would've paid the full price if I'd seen them, let alone $7!

  2. I am loving the shoes and the blouse. Nice finds....


  3. Great shoes! That blouse is adorable :)
