Forever21 loafers, $24.90
I came across these beauties at Forever21 yesterday and my overall opinion/expectation of their shoes was immediately challenged with this one pair. I'm not really into cheaply made shoes because since shoes get beat up more than other things in our wardrobe, they tend to show their value pretty quickly. But every now and then something pops up that defies that theory. The expensive version of these shoes would likely still be faux leather and probably wear about the same over time. They're a little stiff as you might expect, but surprisingly comfortable. I considered getting them in both colors but went with the silver in the end. Think these + ripped skinny jeans + oversized pastel sweater = January uniform. Whatever color you choose, you need to go get these stat.
