the penny loafer


While I was meeting with a publicist friend at her office last week, I bumped into a bigwig stylist I know, who was also there casting models for a Spring 2015 fashion show, featuring a cutting-edge New York-based designer. It was hard to focus on my meeting as potential runway models sashayed around the office. What also got my attention was the throwback Cole Haan penny loafer the stylist picked out to co-star with all the runway looks--a simple but perfect shoe that worked like magic with everything from pants to skirts to easy dresses. It got me thinking: I need a pair for my running-around life! I also like these loafers from Madewell, Sam Edelman, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Saint Laurent.

Hi Marlien -- the cole haan's on the nordstrom site are men's.... was that intentional?

Eek--no! I fixed the link so it points to the women's version. Thanks for catching that!

Well, I feel like a genius--those Cole Haan loafers were my main fall shoe purchase!

I just found them for $119.00 at Macy's. Gotta love it!

You're absolutely right Marlien. Got so excited that I misread the ad. Glad I hadn't ordered them yet. Thanks for posting.
