today i bought... zara ponyskin loafers

You may have realised by now that I'm not the biggest fan of flat shoes. The fact is that unless you're super tall and/or super skinny, you're always going to look better in heels. Even when I'm walking around a lot I'll tend to wear a boot with a small heel, like my Marant Dickers. "True" flats are reserved for commuting alone. But lately there's been a definite shift in fashion towards a flatter shoe, and this season has produced some of the most lustworthy flats I've seen in a long time. As soon as I saw Sabrina of afterDRK's 3.1 Phillip Lim loafers (here) I was sold, and found myself scouring the internet for a more budget-friendly alternative. Luckily, as it so often does, Zara has delivered the goods. These beauties are a dead ringer for Lim's and have it all going for them: they're black, so will work with tights too come winter; they're satisfyingly chunky and mannish; they're ponyskin (gawd, I'm obsessed with ponyskin). Crucially, they also have a small heel, making them ever so slightly more forgiving than a proper flat. In an ideal world I'd like the heel to be a little bigger, but I'm willing to make allowances because other than that they're pretty much the perfect loafers.

  1. These are gorgeous and remind me so much of the metallic phillip lim loafers x

  2. I love a good mannish loafer, and these are no exception! Definitely something I'll have to keep an eye out for in store.
