As soon as our plane touched down at JFK last week, my twin sister was on a mission to buy a new pair of loafers. No ordinary loafers, of course. They would be masculine in nature, with a high vamp, but streamlined and sleek, so as not to be clonky. She was hoping for the Celine variety (see above), as one of her uber stylist friends has a pair and declared them "the new shoe"--or, at least a fresh alternative to the smoking slipper and ballet flat. On Day 2 of our New York trip, we popped into Isabel Marant, where she scored a pair of pony hair buckle-trimmed loafers on sale. She wore them out the door, and is more obsessed with them than ever. Of course, now I am too. So, I did some digging around and found some options, including a suede Isabel Marant version (30% off!) and a patent leather Isabel Marant one (40% off), along with this linkchain-accented Tory Burch, this Sigerson Morrison (20% off), and this (very Celine-inspired) Repetto.
