My love to black and gold in combination seems unstoppable. Now, how amazing are these new patent leather loafers I got myself from Zara? I’m a huge fan of loafers. Little do I own any ballerinas – I believe I do have 1 pair, actually. Ballerinas are too cute, too feminine – for my taste. I like adding a boy-ish look to my outfits, a boldfaced twist of some sort. This can be done with different materials, patterns, images, colors or what the piece represents in general (patent leather, leather in general, gold, or in my case feminine skulls such as my necklace out of gold).
I was actually in Zara to look at the last end of summer sales they had on stock. Guess what? I found nothing. As much as I love clothes and absorbing fashion in all possible ways, I am quite picky when it comes to actually buying the pieces. Instead, I was drawn to the new collection immediately – I found several pieces, I’m sure will land in my wardrobe with time. Not just at Zara’s, but several different stores. These loafers were actually quite well hidden somewhere on the bottom of a rack. Honestly, I barely look down – maybe I should more often! Only by chance did I see these beauties when I was about to leave the store. My luck, they had exactly one pair left in my size – or at least in store. Doesn’t that scream BUY ME, already? It surely seemed like it. To my favor, I really do not own that many shoes for that period of transition between seasons. That way it made perfectly sense to get a pair that would be easily combined with my wardrobe colors – as I mentioned before, almost all is black. At least that is the color I wear more often (yes, I know, it’s not a color officially).
Have you had a chance to look at the new collections in store, already? What’s your must-have from Zara (or any other store)? I’d love to hear all about it – maybe it’ll be something I would need with time, too. For now, happy Wednesday everyone!
